Good Afternoon, Before I continue, I have to say Thank you to everyone from the bottom of my heart. I haven't felt this feeling in such a long time. A feeling of exceptance and understand. I haven't felt like i've related to anyone in many, many years. I've actually felt very alone for quite some time now. This is the first time in 5 years that I've felt comfortable and like I have truely found a home. I'm a 39 year old single mother, of a 22 and 16 year old. I was introduced to a "feel good pill" that's what she called it and absolutely fell in love. I slowly, slowly became a full blown addict. I tried to quit many times, and the addict in me, told me that i could do just that. 'girl, don't worry, you can quit whenever your ready, and that's exactly what I spent years believing, until i hit rock bottom. I lost everything, well mostly everything. There were a few things that I manage to save, like my job, my boyfriend, my relationship with my family and kids and most importantly My Life....

I have read a bunch of websites that really scared me and when i came across this one, i felt very comfortable. I was addicted to percoset 10"s for many years, i became very tired and my soul was very heavy with addiction. I couldn't even look in the mirrow at myself. I have to say that Suboxone, saved my life and i havne't been this happy and at peace with myself in many years. I'm on 16 mg a day. I've found that it makes me very, very tired and sleepy at times during the day and wanted to know if anyone else experiances this?

I have alot to say, because i've been through so much in the last year, but for right now, i will stop and write more about me and my life and my situation tomorrow.

I am so happy that I have found friends here, I can't express how happy i am...

Hi tamluv and welcome to the forum! I'm so happy to hear the forum has helped you out. Regarding feeling tired, you might simply be on too high a dose for your specific needs. I would consider a dose reduction - of course that's between you and your doctor, but sleepiness is often a result of a dose that's too high. I hope you can work it out soon and feel better. Hang in there and again, WELCOME! I hope to see you posting again.

Hello Hatmaker, thank you so much for the response. After reading so many post, I figured the dose might be to high. Of Course i'm not going to change my doses until I see may doctor again, which is tuesday. Yes, this forum as really helped me alot. I'm 22 days sober and it feels great. I know that it's only been 22 days to some, but it's a life time to me. I know that I new to this disease, but I have accepted that I am sick, and I do have a disease, called addiction. I am also, excited that there are many people that are just like me and that i have people to communcate with that have gone thru and exprienced the same things as I have...

You guys are truly life savers...Friends for Life...
