Maybe I should have a section just for addresses of news stories written by idiots.

This story is filled with falsehoods: http://www.lancastereaglegazette.com/ar ... icials-say

I have already left a comment--and I encourage others to educate the writer by leaving comments. As I've requested before, leave a link to the forum, or to my blog.... if you would like to find a post on my blog to counter something, go to suboxsearch.com and search my blog specifically-- and leave the link with your comment. Thanks in advance-- stamp out ignorance, AND help me get the word out as well.

Wow,
I see what you mean about the anger! I have been on sub for many years and will now stay on it. I tried to come off for the last three years and it was a mess. For me without sub I would most likely be dead. I am in North Florida and am really thinking of a way to start up some type of support group for people on sub. It seems they are beaten down and always told they are not clean. People in my life pushed me for the last three years to get off, I tried and now I am telling everyone, even my husband, if you can accept it, too bad. I am an addict and this helps me live a normal life so I am going to take it. I don't care any more what people think, I am alive and well with Sub's.

What garbage!!!
Just what we need, more stigma
Yes there are ppl who sell their suboxone to get on their DOC, but in my case, as soon as i tried suboxone i knew it would work for me and i had no desire to touch anything else ever again.
Even i used to buy them off the street, when i could not find a doctor that wasnt highly expensive. Now i see a doctor and am so much happier. But majority of ppl who buy them off the street are only doing so cuz they wana help themselves and cannot affors treatment. Yes there are some who only use suboxone in between their DOC, but there are alot of good hearter ppl out there that dont. Just because they were addicted to opiates doesnt make them a bad person. Anyone can fall victim to addiction and dependence. In my case, it runs in my family. Every person in my immediate family has gone their seperate ways after pur family split up, and come to find out, we all went thru the same problem with opiates. Maybe they numbed our emotional pain alil more than our physical pain. Whatever the case, ppl need help. And suboxone helps. Cold turkey has failed me as many times as i have tried. Its not for everyone. Those who are strong enough to not trade a "pill for a pill " or a "drug for a drug" , good for them. I just am not one of those ppl. Nobody wants to be addicted to drugs. Its not fair to look down on suboxone. Why not support a persona progress. Its about making a choice to change with the tools that u have. Suboxone being one of them.

I actually enjoyed this article. I read the entire thing and I think that the writer did a good job of highlighting the good and bad. Don't get me wrong, I've been on Sub for 5 years and think it's a blessing.

That being said, there are bad aspects of the drug and my town is becoming a victim of them as I write this. I really agree that Drs. Need more education on this program because it has the potential to ruin a ton of lives if misused.

I read a piece today on Suboxone being prescribed for depression. This, if you ask me is a huge problem. I've been on Bupe for 5 years and if anything it has caused a great deal of depression. Giving it to depressed patients with no opiate abuse history is a danger to society. There is no situation that it should be given to a patient without a severe opiate addiction.

Sorry to rant, but can you see why in many ways these are legit issues that should be addressed.

I'm one of those who is dependent on Suboxone for its help with my depression , my Dr and I have made that decision , what a shame someone with your user name makes blanket comments about medications .... Meds at small dosages are used for other purposes than what's meds were designed for... Please " don't get me wrong " either , Mike

Some people dont get it, simply because they're stubborn and stuck in their own ways. We found treatment that works, so lets pick at it and magnify the tiny flaws until,its illegal. Just because that guy has a dr. in front of his name doesnt mean shit. He's obviously ignorant. I like how they say people are more willing to go to therapy when using suboxone. For the most part, the mental health field is a joke.

Did you know that Buprenorphine, (without the naloxone), was prescribed for things other than addiction for many years outside America before it showed up on the radar in the states and that a lot of people worldwide are legitimately prescribed it for chronic pain, anxiety, and yes, even depression.
