Re: Question about dose of Suboxone Film 8mg/2mg

The lowest amount I've ever been on was 1mg via the films. Forgot to take my dose one day and went into w'ds 23 hours later. Not sure if that helped answer your question but the point is the lesser amount the less time it takes for the body to use it up. Went up to 2mgs and that lasted over 24 hours...

Re: Dosage Time

Like the OP, bupe makes tired after a few house. Doc Junig recommended "modafinil (Provigil) and armodafinil (Nuvigil)" I just copied and pasted this from his post. Might talk to my doctor about these meds and see what he says. Taking it after work or in the evening sounds like a good idea...

Re: Doctor change

That's too bad. It is hard to find a doctor who really understands what a mess our addict brains are. Without Sub I probably should have died a long time ago. Lucky for me my doctor rarely even asks questions about me stopping. This addict is very lucky to have found one who not only takes insurance...

Re: Day 9!! Help

Hey Rambo,

It looks like you have things under control now. If you had come here before stopping most people would have said to taper real slow and steady. But your already done with it so good job putting it behind you. Let us no your progress

Re: after surgery pain control

If you look at the Talk Zone section (up top) there are several articles written by Dr. Junig about pain control after surgery. It should answer most of your questions.

Re: Here we go.. (Day 10 off Suboxone)

Nicely said BlueLight. Yes, we are all different and some young addicts may be better off tapering and stopping Suboxone. If they have good insight of there addiction and know for sure they will succeed then go for it. But like you said your friend wasn't one of them. No one can say what is good for...

Thanks Bluelight for lightening things up here. I was referring to the other member, ST, about that comment he/she made. For some reason that subject has always buggered me and I finally posted about it. Considering how well Suboxone works I'm not sure I need more bioavailability. They seem very str...

Please stop with the "up the butt" option BL & ST. Personally I find it disgusting although people are entitled to their own opinions. My question has always been, why don't you just ask for a stronger dose and take it the right way? IMO, it borders addict behavior. What's next, shooti...

If I used anything related to MJ my doctor might kick me out of the program. I'm not going to ask so I can't know for sure. Just don't want to come up positive on the UA test. Not worth it for me. Maybe ask your doctor if it's okay? That's what I would do if it helps. The last time I got high from p...

They've been lying to us all these years about booze being good for the heart. That study was done on recovering alcoholics so of course their hearts wo...

Re: Less NAS for babies of Bupe maintained moms?

katbirdh, Just curious. What brought you to this forum? There is no indication of addiction so why even post your opinion on a recovery forum? Just to stir the pot and get the pregnant mothers to feel more guilty for being an addict in recovery? It's only my opinion but you don't really belong here....

Re: Hemp CBD Oil and Suboxone

Hi River, The reason you haven't received many responses is probably due to the subject matter. Even though CDB oil seems to benefit a lot of different health issues it still comes from the MJ plant and maybe members don't want to go there. Or, I could be totally wrong! My guess is that either membe...

Re: I’m scared. I induct Friday at 1030am

You'll get through it just fine. None of us wanted to go into withdrawal but we all make it out to be so much worse than it is/was. About an hour before induction, I thought, this isn't so bad, but it will be nice for it to be over soon. I couldn't understand how a drug could take away my intense cr...

This one has me seeing red flags all over. You say you want to use Buprenorphine as an analgesic but our own doctors have advised against that. Have you talked to other doctors about switching over? The amount of hydrocodone you're taking is very small. Stopping it will result in only minor discomfo...

Congrats on stopping but the way you did it was wrong. That's why you have a negative opinion about it.

Re: just started subs, weird side effect

How's it going now? Can't say I've ever heard of that side effect but maybe it's because you're producing excess saliva due to having it dissolve in your mouth. Who knows?

Let us know how it turns out and if it went away.
