Hi,I'm new to the group. I am 27 years old, I am a mother to 4 amazing children, me and my boyfriend have been together almost 4 years. We are both on subutex, we use the same dr and he knows us both very well, I could go on for days with this story, but I just need some advice. I am prescribed 3 8mg a day, and I also get somas for stomach cramps and back issues, my boyfriend is prescribed the same thing, except he has adderall added to his, 30mg 3 times a day. We have always been what I thought was happy, yes we have had our share of issues, I am doing everything I can to keep my family together but I am at my end, 3 of my children are not his but he is the only father they have ever known and they love him dearly and together we have a daughter who is almost 2. The issue is, my boyfriend doesn't seem to have much a a sex drive, he has had issues with meth and he has always messaged girls and had a fake facebook where he talked to girls and said things, he was also on a Web page text messaging escorts and things of that nature, I never found he dome anything just talked through messages while he was using meth, he did cheat on me with 1 girl that I know of for sure and it was 2 years ago during his meth issues, he's over come that and we're trying to move on, but I believe some of these issues have to do with low testosterone. No not the cheating that is personal issues, but the sex drive I believe is low testosterone has a lot to do with our issues, we talk to our Dr a lot and have through around counseling, should I talk to him and maybe see how he would feel about having his levels checked to see if that would help things at home? I understand I am risking alot, as the saying goes once a Chester always a cheater, but for the sake of my family and my love for this man I really don't feel I can move on until I have done everything in my power to try to fix the issues first. I have no doubts about his love for me, I know he loves me, and I love him, I just feel his past addictions and things mixed with the subutex maybe causing some issues that we could fix, I know how silly this may sound but I want my love back, I want want we used to be and if I can't atleast I can hold my head up and move on knowing we done everything we could not only for the kids but for ourselves. I've tried leaving, a few times and there's enough of something there that neither of us are willing to part with, and I want our life back.

Yes, he should definitely have his T-levels checked. Opioids, including the partial agonist Subutex can significantly impact sex drive and Testosterone and the testicals. 3 x 8mg seems to be a lot. Have either of you tried reducing the dose any? Anymore, it seems that 16mg is the maximum dosage ever recommended, with many people often requiring less than 8mg, and even as low as 2mg to successfully treat the symptoms.

Welcome to the site and let us know if you have any other questions. I'm sure others will chime in soon with their advice and experiences.

Thanks,
Morphing
