Hi everyone...I am new to this site but def not new to Suboxone. I wanted ti share something with all of u regarding
coming off of Subs. I've been on them for 2 years now. I was addicted to perks for about 3 years. I would go to different
ERs, complain about kidney pain cause I have a kidney disease and stones so it would be believable. They would give me dilauded thru iv and script for percs. I went every week. So one night my upper arms start hurting and jolting. My Dad brought
me to the ER cause we didn't know what was wrong. At the time I didn't know what w/d felt like. The Drs gave me dilauded and did tests.
As soon as the dilauded hit me, pain was gone. I saw numerous Drs and specialists to find out what's wrong. I even got admitted to hospital
for a week. Prob with that is they gave me dilauded every 4 hours so of course I had no pain. Finally I did research and
all my symptoms were w/d symptoms. I decided I needed to stop taking pills. Well, my w/d got worse. The mental was horrible and scary. I had no sleep cause of my legs and arm pains. I decided to try subs. It worked great. I felt like me again. So 2 yrs later here I am still on this. Well as all of u know, suboxone is not cheap. I pay 125 for visit and 250 for meds. Well I didn't have the money this month so I can't go till the 5th of july. Today I was in bad shape. I ended up going to the ER to see if they can give me suboxone. My Dr said the ER does not carry suboxone but that she will give me meds to help my symptoms. Obviously. I have a high tolerance so nothing worked. Finally she decides to csll the hospital pharmacy and they had it so she gave me one. Idk why they didn't do that in the first place. So for everyone who needs subs and u r on them already, go to the ER. They can't write scripts but they can give u some.

I don't think this is a route many people should take, as it's a short-term solution to a long-term problem. You just put-off the inevitable, but according to the laws in most states, a hospital ER CAN administer a script for Suboxone for up to 3 days (at 3 per day)..but that's it. The staff and on-call may not know the procedures and might be wary of doing it because of the DATA2000 waiver ...but it's a fact. I wouldn't try to tell too many doctors they are wrong about something though, they don't take kindly to being told that someone on the street knows more than them...Most see themselves as a higher being than us lowly addicts, and it's a blow to their self esteem to be told such.

Either way, getting sub from ER isn't really solving a problem, just putting off, and for many, this is reminiscent of drug-seeking behavior. Lots of doctor shopping requires hitting hospitals from town to town so the ER can administer IV opiates, and this is a trigger for many people.

I appreciate the fact that you're probably trying to help, but I agree with the PP. YOU may have benefited because it'll get you by until your next script, but the people in this part of the forum are very much ready to be off of it. I'm glad you were able to find some relief and hope that this forum can be of help to you in your journey.

This person isn't trying to get off them, said in her very post that you agreed with that "she didn't have the money to get to her suboxone doctor this month and couldn't go until july 5th"...

Stopping for a week then starting back isn't quitting. You only quit something once. And forgive me, I must've overlooked where I typed out a long, lengthy speech about how she should stay on Suboxone for at least 90 years or so to get the full effect. What I said is fact...people who doctor shop and active addicts usually hit ER's as a last resort when they can't get a fix...and for many, if they are without Suboxone and no way to get it, this is too close to home and puts them back into active addiction (well, while I"m here, might as well get some IV dilaudid...then maybe a few from this dealer I know until I get my suboxone next month).....

Johnathan, I think you misunderstood. I was agreeing with you. Wholeheartedly.

I know it is not a fix, and I was not saying that it was. I read a lot of forums from people about this topic which is why I was trying to let people know the laws. I am one of those people that went to ER after ER to get percs and IV meds, so I know the triggers. I did not explain my situation enough though so that is my fault. I told my Dr I wanted to cut back and come off the Suboxone. He said I was not ready to do that after being on it for 2 years. I told him I was going to find a different Dr then if he did not start cutting me back. Then I had a prob paying for my visit and usually the Dr would just write me a script for however long. When I asked him to do that, all of a sudden he said no and that I would have to wait until the 5th. He knew I was out of them but he knew I was going to leave him if he didn't start cutting me back. That is why I went to the ER. I tried home remedies first. So, today I called different DRs, I live in Jersey so we have tons of DRs. After my 4th DR that I called, I found a DR in my town. I called his office and he actually got on the phone with me and spoke to me for 20 mins. He knew my old DR and said that he is in it for the money.That is why he didn't want to cut me back. This DR is more expensive, but he is also a Therapist and he has a strict treatment for Suboxone. My first visit was today and I was in his office for 2 hours talking about Suboxone. He told me the right way I was suppose to take it. I never was shown the right way by my previous DR. He told me the best times to take it, and he gave me one there so he can see if I was on the right dose. My first DR never did that. All he did was ask what I was addicted to and gave me a script for 90 pills. This DR I saw today gave me a paper of how his treatment works and the steps to cutting back. This is my first time seeing Him and he already has a plan to get me off of this med the right way. He also gave me things to read on anxiety and depression. He said he did not want to prescribe me anything for that just yet, cause he said the least amount of meds the better. So I go back next Monday for a 45 min visit and then that will be every other week. He was so easy to talk to, and knew so much. He said that 85% of Sub DRs are in it for the money. I finally have hope that I will be ok. I am writing a letter to the health board and to my old DR. It is not right what he is doing to people that go to him for help. He uses their addiction for his benefit. My Dad is also going to write letters as well. If anyone on here is in the NJ area, message me and I will give u this DRs info so u can see him. You wont Be sorry. Again, I am sorry if I set off triggers by mentioning the ER last night. That was not my intention at all.
