Right after I finished Suboxone, I think my mood was a little off for about a month or so. Some anxiety here and there, but everything was completely tolerable. That medication helped me so much. I was on it for just about two years and had very few cravings and absolutely nothing intense. I did screw up yesterday...thats why I joined today. Took a Sub today because I was vomiting, achy, etc, but all is well now and I will learn from my mistake. I think it was a good reminder of how much that medication really helped me. To get two years under my belt before I had to deal with a real craving was probably a life saver to my recovery. I don't know how successful I would have been trying to fight that kind of craving in the beginning. This time, it just totally caught me off guard. I had gotten complacent.
I am a firm believer in what they say...stay on it until you want...I mean REALLy want to be off of it. I stayed on for an extra year after I was ready and I'm glad I did. Excellent medication.

Chained - I don't know how it happened, but somehow your post got stuck in forum cyber space and didn't get any replies! Forgive us for that - it sometimes happens.

I want to thank you for sharing your story. It sounds like suboxone was a good treatment option for you. I agree that people need it for their own time frame.

I hope you'll see this and return to the forum. Even though you probably think we suck by now. :[
