Hey. I've been searching all over the web for help or just something to read to give me an ounce of hope. I think I found what I was searching for. I'm 40 yrs.old and My addiction to oxycodone started when I was 39. I'm so entirely depressed and anxiety has consumed me. I am so tired of taking these pills...I HATE THEM with so much passion. I called and found a Sub doc and go in for my assessment Wednesday. I've quit taking oxys 2 or 3 times..cold turkey and went through a zillion shades of hell. The last time, i quit for 3 er 4 months...started Prozac...starting doing good with the depression (crying a lot and just feeling so hopeless and empty.) but, it just didn't kick the anxiety. I have had severe anxiety since i was a kid for a lot of reasons. It seems now, thats the only way my mind and body know how to be. I havent felt "normal" in many years. Well, honestly..the first 6 months of my oxy addiction, i did. It took away the mental pain I've carried around all my life. Anyway, im excited to start this suboxone treatment but im so worried about my anxiety. Does it help with anxiety/depression? I def plan on a anti-depressant....I think I'm going to try either Effexor or Paxil...only ofcourse if my doc agrees that i can benefit from it. I have so many questions...I just want off these pills and i want some happiness and normalcy in my life. I hope and pray Suboxone works for me. I don't want to feel broken anymore.

Hi cherish, I'm sorry you have been struggling like so many of us but making the choice to get off the pills will be one of the best choices. Have you started yet? If so how is it going? I am new here and started sub in mid january. It has made my life better. I was on pain management for back problems, took more than needed of my pills and it became a endless cycle of that. finally i was in W/D so bad i decided i couldnt do this anymore and sought treatment. I think finding the right doctor is important too. you want someone who is truly concerned for your recovery.. well all the best keep me posted

Hi Cherish!

The transition to Sub can be daunting for many people, but they are always happy in the end.

I'm unsure as to whether buprenorphine is all that effective for treating anxiety. But it does have anti-depressant effects. It'd be a good idea to wait until you've stabilised on buprenorphine before considering options for anti-depressants, as it's possible you might not feel the need for them after going on Sub.

If you do go down the SSRI route - someone in my family with bad anxiety has been managing it well on paroxetine for years.

My anxiety is crazy, scared to leave house, think I'm going to die , all the good stuff, bad depression too, this is why I started opiates because it temporarily fixed them and made me feel okay, we'll suboxone is an opiate, so guess what? It fixes them! I've never been happier or less anxious in my life since suboxone, get on it!
