Re: quantitative Test wrong?

Welcome to the forum, ttown. I'll take a shot at your question and concerns. I'm not trying to stick up with the doctor so much, but they are dealing with addicts on a constant basis. I'm sure they have heard every story in the book when something is not quite right. When the results of a UA come ba...

Re: Dental Surgery on Suboxone Treatment, Probation and more

I'm so happy things went very well for you! Now you have your own story to tell others how it REALLY was, and keep them from freaking out. :D I believe the surgeon routinely hands out the Oxy to his patients that have a procedure close to yours. He may have spoke with your doctor? I won't tell you n...

Re: Decreased too fast?

Hey babyrob, Spot-on advice and suggestions from Tinydancer. You just took a rather large dose reduction and your system is fighting hard to recover from it. Do as Tiny suggests and take smaller reductions. I would just add to take between 3-7 days or so between each of the dose reductions. After yo...

Re: Reprieve's Addiction Story

Tuesday was the First day of the rest of my life hopefully. I went to my Dr and spilled the beans. She is starting me on 16 MG per day, 8MG in the morning and at night. I tried to tell her I felt this was too much, but after talking with her about it, I differed to her judgement... She said we coul...

I forgot to add that I did the evaluation on the COWS sheet and I scored 11. The dr said I should be at 26 or higher to switch over and I should be there by the time of my appt Thursday night. Actually that's a good sign you are moving right along. I wouldn't necessarily expect you to score that hi...
