NO arguments about stopping vs. staying, no taper questions. For people who use buprenorphine as the mainstay of their life-long recovery program, with no CURRENT interest in stop dates. We believe addiction is a life-long illness that deserves life-long treatment. For people on buprenorphine and for people who love them- who feel the same way.

 Post subject: Yes I want to stay on. But its the 'how'... that worries me
PostPosted: Wed Oct 25, 2017 12:13 am 
Hey everyone,
Its been a while since I have posted. I have decided since I began my induction that I was going to try and stay on suboxone long term. The longer time went on, the more assured I have become that I want to stay on maintenance indefinitely.

My doctor seems to not believe in maintenance. I found this out the last visit. I am 8 months in. I have talked about wanting to ...

 Post subject: Attempting to stop after 10 years on Bup
PostPosted: Thu Jul 06, 2017 10:24 am 
No idea who will read/see this but I have found reading these forums to be helpful in encouraging me to get off the Subutex so I decided to post a thread in the hopes you guys can help me get thru the next few weeks. I'm currently in NY visiting family and friends but my home base is FL. I'm a female, 33, no kids or partner, own my own business.

Quick backstory on how ...

 Post subject: What is a reasonable maintenance dosage?
PostPosted: Sat Jul 23, 2016 5:19 am 
I'll keep it as short as possible, and hope that suboxdoc or other informed members can help; it is possible that I will answer the question by asking, but confirmation would be much appreciated.
I have been on Suboxone for 3 and 1/2 years, starting out at 8mg, dropping to 4mg, then 2mg followed by a failed and uninformed attempt to quit. I learned that lesson the hard way. Not doing it again.
I am ...

 Post subject: Finally Figured Out The Counseling Issue!
PostPosted: Sun May 01, 2016 12:31 am 
So, I finally figured out the whole "government said you need counseling to get this medicine!" thing. After leaving one place that didn't take state insurance, only private or check/cash, I was on track to begin with a different place that said I'd need to go to two hour groups three times a week in addition to hourly monthly one-on-ones. At my last Suboxone doctor's appointment I spoke with one of the doctors about my ...

PostPosted: Thu Apr 14, 2016 1:42 pm 
I've been on 8mg a day for about 2 years or so, and the medication is still doing what it did for me on day one...make me feel normal. I remember when I first found this forum via google, and also a couple anti sub forums. I wanted to find out what I was getting into, and so many people were both for, and against suboxone. 4 or 5 rehabs in between 15 years of ...

 Post subject: Are there doctors that offer this as addiction maintenance?
PostPosted: Wed Apr 06, 2016 11:40 pm 
Hi. I've been pretty steady on subs since 09. I came off it for 3 months in 2011. I can not stress this enough, it was the worst, most miserable 3 months of my life. I went in very optimistic, thinking it would be nothing. I tried, I really did. I lost 20lbs the first month. Couldn't eat, no appetite. It was winter at the time, bear in mind I rarely get cold. I'm always ...

I had started at 14mg of suboxone 1x daily and over about 3 1/2 years almost 4 years i had slowly weigned down on the subs.
