I'm not sure if you have a doctor that is willing to write you subutex or not, but there isn't a Suboxone from Reckitt made any longer. They stopped making the pill form in mid March. But there is a generic form you can ask to try :)
I had a miracle happen with me, as I mentioned above, with a friend I hadn't seen in years giving me a couple on Friday, plus the woman that caused me so much trouble with being short calling and saying she had two I was going to get from her. My appt is tomorrow, and I have nearly two left(just opened one of the two)

The thing with me, I never take over 1/2 at a time. So what's built up in my system isn't enough to keep me going for too long before I have to take more. But like the one I just opened, I only took maybe 1/6th if it. And I'll cut it that way until is gone,

I don't know if he was talking about subutex or generic. I know he did say that they stopped making it for a while, but they started making it again. So either he was talking about subutex or Reckitt started making the pill form again. If I'm not mistaken, that's what he was saying (Reckitt makes them again now). Now I'm going to research.....


....actually the more I think, I am almost positive he said they stopped making it earlier this year, but started up again. Still worth looking into....

Q- I totally missed your post! I'm sorry! But yeah, we def sound a lot alike! He is a non-confrontational person for SURE! lol He doesn't get upset about a lot, but he does get nervous with this. Mainly because this isn't the first time it's happened. He doesn't want me to go thru hell so it scares him and I don't want to cause that. It's funny....I'm on here going on and on about this, but here at home I've been pretty silent all day and haven't said a word about it. I'm just glad you all are here!

Ok, so I did a little research and I do believe they are making the tablet form again. The only reason I say that is because according to their website, the official Suboxone site.....used to say that they stopped making the tablet form. BUT now it doesn't say that. It just has the info links on tablets and a bunch of reasons why you should TRY the film. But it would seem as thought the tablets are available. Otherwise it would say they weren't...like it did before. K ...now I'm talking in circles lol....I will find out tomorrow though for sure. Wish me luck, cross your fingers and toes....say a little prayer for me....

So I just wanted to give you all an update because you've been here for me all weekend. I called my doctors office today and they where super nice about it. I just basically said that I messed up again this month and that maybe I need to have my subs adjusted for a little bit. I said I was really worried about getting kicked because this program has helped so much. That I've been in it for a year and it was doing amazing for me, I was going down in my dosing no problem, until I lost my job and that's when things started getting out of whack. I said that I didn't want the doctor to think this was going to be an ongoing problem and that I will be taking steps to prevent this from happening again. I said I was going to give my subs to my husband to give to me daily and start seeing an addiction counselor, or some kind of counselor. She was so nice about it and very understanding. She looked at my chart and said she could see I have been on it for a while now and I have been doing well. She also said that she totally understood my concerns and that it's good that I am taking steps to prevent this from happening again. She also suggested that I could speak to my doctor more about my addiction because he is an addiction counselor and psychologist. Usually I don't say much when I go in because I don't see the head doctor, I see one of his other doctors. Once she realized that I didn't see the head doctor she was like "oh, well you see doctor so and so, and you can still talk to him but, yeah it might be good to talk to someone". lol this other doctor (the one I see) I think is given the patients that the head doctor feels are in good shape and don't need much counseling. The main doctor at this practice is really a nice guy and believes there is no cookie cutter way of treated us addicts. That we are all different and some of us do well with AA or counseling and some of us do good just moving on with life our own way. Which I agree with. But anyways.....the doctor agreed to up me to 16mg a day for a while and they are calling me in enough to get to my next appointment. I'm sooooo grateful that they didn't blow me off or dismiss me. I'm so lucky that I found a good practice, especially after reading some of the stories from other people. I want to thank you all so very much for being here for me and giving me someone to talk to about this, and giving me someone to relate to. Like I said, I've been to these boards before, just never posted. I'm glad I posted and I will def. stick around :)

That's great Mizzme!

It sounds like you have an excellent doctor. Now, just don't forget what you have learned from this experience and move on from here. I'm really happy for you that everything worked out.

I hope you stick around!

So. I'm confused.

Thought you wanted off, you weren't an addict because you had no addict friends, and withdrawal was a breeze at 20 hours because Jesus saved you.


But now you are a bad addict that wants assistance?

Smells like something fishy. Sorry. But I'd you're real.... Good luck to you. Get real. Get educated.

Moviemaker - I don't what your deal is, but you clearly have me mixed up with someone else! I NEVER said I wanted off, I NEVER said withdrawal was a breeze or anything about Jesus! WTF! I've never said ANY of the things you're accusing me of! Maybe you should check who you are talking to before you go making yourself out to be a fool. Do you feel better about yourself now? Because you are WRONG about everything you just said. Maybe you should go back and read the post in it's entirety. Maybe you should go and see that I've never even posted here before this. Maybe you shouldn't even be on a site that is here to HELP people....not bash them.....so why don't YOU go get EDUCATED.

MovieMaker,

You have your threads confused again. I believe you are referring to the thread in Stopping Suboxone by Glozel, not this one.

That's got to be what happened, because I went to check the other posts movie had and there is one where a different user says the things movie accused me of. I thought I was being accused of being fake or something......so that's why I got so defensive. But not I see it was clearly a misunderstanding. But sheesh.....it probably would be a good idea to make sure you're on the right post when you say something like that.

It's ok, no worries :) I realize it was a mix up. I did see the post you must have been referring to and I can see why you said what you did.

Amber- It's really weird that you said what you did about maybe having an underlying issue. I honestly have been thinking lately that I do have something going on....I just don't know what. I've always been around people who don't take mental issues seriously, they think it's something made up. So I haven't went to anybody to talk to and see if maybe I have some other issues that need dealt with. I have however done quite a bit of research online and from all the symptoms listed it would seem that I may have OCD and possibly ADHD. For example, at night (this is going to sound weird) when I lay down, I fidget and fidget and fidget until everything "feels" right. Like the sheet underneath me can't be wrinkled, and even if it's not, if I feel it is I keep adjusting until it feels right. Same with my clothes. I do obsess about things and have high anxiety. I have a weird addiction to chapstick....when I get nervous I have to put it on. I ALWAYS have my chapstick with me, if I realize I don't I start panicking. I know it sounds stupid and weird....but in my mind chapstick is a very serious thing lol. Once I put it on I instantly feel better. Sometimes I have to put it on numerous times before that happens....but whatever. Just typing this out makes me feel like such a damn weirdo. My point is....I need to make an appointment with a mental health specialist. Another thing....during my addiction I got my hands on Adderal (sp?) a few times. When I took it I felt normal. Not high or had super energy like some people say. Just normal. My thoughts would be clearer and not all over the place. And my thoughts slowed down. That's another thing. I can't stop thinking all the time. Think think think. That's all I do. Its like I'm constantly trying to figure something out....I just don't know what. I'm going to print this out and take it with me when I make an appointment lol. This is the first I've been able to explain it and it sound even relatively close to what I actually feel. Any other time when I've tried to explain it....I can't. I feel like once I get in to talk to someone I'm going to sit there and not know what to say or how to explain how I feel. I know this is prob. all over the place and I apologize. As far as running out early and how I'm doing with that...not good at all. I'm down to 3 strips and I am going to break down and call the doctor tomorrow. I just don't know what I'm going to say yet :( But the lesson is def. learned! No denying that! After my next appointment I am giving my strips to my husband so he can give me what I'm suppose to take every day and no more than that. I think I'm going to get a safe too and give him the key because I prob. would break him down enough to give me an extra here and there if I get weak. As much as I know that I won't put myself thru this again, and how stupid it is to begin with because taking more is pointless.....I don't trust myself just yet. All I know is that I have a LOT of self-examining to do. And a lot of work to do still. Thanks for reading my rambling.




here's a REALLY GREAT place to start with, for reading about ADHD or ADD....

http://www.addforums.com/forums/index.php
read under "adults with add/adhd" then go to "diagnosis & treatment" on the top of that sub-forum, is a bunch of sticky posts, with links on common symptoms, and "practices" LOL....

here's a good resource/definition of OCD.....
http://www.ocfoundation.org/whatisocd.aspx

I hope you DO get this figured out sooner rather than later...
goodnight :wink:
