I was so good on suboxone/subutex for months.In NY and then here in Brazil.8mg's a day usually and sometimes 4mg's.I ran out now and first thing I did was I run to codeine to cope and I hate it.I'm now 3 and a half days without sub and I've taken about 20 30mg pure codeine pills.No Tylenol.Not even getting high is the worst part!Wow I'm bad.I do have a flight to New york thanks to my mom who paid for it to get more sub on feb 5th but until then I will be the same ole addict I was.Worst part is I don't think I can even score enough to keep me from getting sick till then.Gah!!!What did I do to myself again...I will never come off the sub again if I have a choice to get back on.Pray for me everyone.I need it...

This is very unfortunate. BUT......if all you can get is codeine, I suggest you exercise as much as possible. You will feel like shit but get those endorphins going if you can. When you get a refill on sub, you won't likely need 4-8mg anymore and you can reduce your dose most likely. I wish you the best. These next couple weeks are going to be rough.

Man i feel for you OP when I think of sub withdrawal having to be supplemented with nothing but codeine that must be a nightmare. I bet its not even keeping any of the sick away since its so weak, I wouldnt even consider that a slip up unless you want to get realy technical. What else were you supposed to do ya know? I mean you ran out in a different country. Sometimes people will use hydrocodone or other short acting opiates to ween during suboxone withdrawal so just think of it like that. dont beat yourself up I would of done the same in that situation. Hope you get through it without to much pain.
