I have been an active member of AA now for over 3 years and really loved the fellowship and working the steps. My life was getting better but I was in an accident and began taking Loratab and then became addicted very quickly. I soon became a professional patient and would travel hospitals and urgent cares in several states. My car could not drive by a hospital without pulling in. Soon I was buying on the street and you all know what happened next. My sister is also addicted to opiates and one day she said she was worried about me and sold me a suboxone pill. I broke it in 1/4's and felt relief in about 10 minutes. I jumped on the internet and spent over 20 hours reading about suboxone. I found a Doctor 2 hours away and made an appointment. I have been on it now for 2 months and I can't believe I have my life back. The cravings, the urge is gone. I prayed for relief and found it in Suboxone. I still attend AA several times a week and I have hope. I do not share with those in AA that I take Suboxone but I believe for now that this is how it is suppose to be for me and I would share with anyone that cares to know that Suboxone has given me a second chance. The negative I receive is when I go to the pharmacy to fill my script. My Dr saw me several times my first two weeks and would give me a script each time for a few days. I would get the same treatment every time. They would ask what is your Social Security Number? We need to see your ID? They would flip the script over and hold it to the light making a big scene in front of everyone. Twice I overheard them say "another one of them" They made me feel worse than when they knew I was filling another pain pill script from yet another Dr. I guess I thought they would embrace the fact I was getting something that was going to make me better. I asked a pharmacy tech recently at another pharmacy what suboxone was and she told me it was some kind of drug for drug addicts. At first I kinda got offended then I laughed (I laugh alot now) I am a drug addict. Thanks for this site........and thanks for suboxone. In AA they say Time Takes Time and I am in no hurry to stop taking this truly amazing medication. Thank you for letting me share and I look forward to all the post.

Hey there, welcome!

Take your pharmacy story and post it in the 'Damn Pharmacist' section. I find it interesting and you should share that story in there! Whats with some of them anyway?

Are you getting it once a month now?
