Re: Suboxone and Xanax taken together

In all due respect, I am very well versed on ALL the benzos. I have taken them for 25 years--in much larger doses than I take now. I have detoxed from them a couple of times with no problems, and I don't need judgments or challenges from people imploring me to stop taking them. There are other fact...

Re: Why do I keep doing this to myself

jennjenn- I wanted to write back and say you are correct. I started suboxone quite a few years ago so I tend to forget all the details but I remember that my initial appointment they prescribed me one pill (back before the strips). I went to Walmart, had it filled then went back to the doctor's offi...

Re: Why do I keep doing this to myself

Thank you for the replies. I don't normally set New Year's resolutions because if something is that important to you it shouldn't wait until the end of the year but I listed "quit kratom!" as my only resolution the last 2 years. I started my methadone treatment last Tuesday (August 16th) and have be...

Re: Why do I keep doing this to myself

After yet another long absence I'm back on the suboxone forum. It feels like home in a way. So back in March of this year (2016) I was left with no choice but to come off the kratom as I was completely out of money and refused to borrow any more. I have no credit cards by choice and pay everything w...

Re: Why do I keep doing this to myself

Hey everyone! I had my sub appointment today. I have been dying to write up the latest information but right as I got to work some really hot tickets fell in my lab and I have been working on them ever since (I do advanced computer routing). I will have an update later today.

Re: Why do I keep doing this to myself

Another restless night. I am on day 6 of withdrawals with no kratom taken since 7g on March 9th around 5pm. The restless legs are much worse for me with these withdrawals than they were from my suboxone withdrawal. Last night I finally fell asleep around 2:30 after a super hot bath and some nighttim...

Re: Why do I keep doing this to myself

Pelican thank you for the reply. That is almost exactly the reason I have quit kratom. What started as a $10 a month "hobby" became a $30-40 a day habit that was only increasing. Once again my day revolved around getting my DOC, I sold most of my old video games and my PS4 for money and even borrowe...

Re: Why do I keep doing this to myself

Thank you Amy and JennJenn for your replies. I am on my 5th day of no kratom and I can honestly say for me that kratom withdrawal has actually been worse than suboxone withdrawal. Absolutely everyone's experience will be different, but for me I would absolutely conclude that swapping suboxone for kr...

Re: Day 2 off of Suboxone

Loribug- You are doing great! 12 days off and you are almost certainly past all the worst withdrawal symptoms. Have you found your emotions are out of control at this point? I remember just feeling everything so much more intensely, songs sounded incredible and I was all in on conversations with peo...

Thank you Amy for the reply. I hope I'm not abusing this board by writing about kratom withdrawal in the bupe in the rearview mirror board. Please let me know and I will stop. I was on this board all the time back in my suboxone days and have found myself drawn back to it now again. Last night was a...

Re: Why do I keep doing this to myself

So last night was interesting to say the least. I have been planning on tapering off Kratom for a few months now (at least since November when I wrote the original post). This week things fell into place so I have done the following: Sunday 30mg (10mg morning, 10mg afternoon, 10mg evening) Monday 20...

Re: Why do I keep doing this to myself

Thank you all for your responses, this board is very comforting. So i am currently tapering off Kratom. Strange how I am back in this same situation. I imagine I'm not the only person who has gone through the process of quitting more than once. :) I called a suboxone doctor in my area and set up an ...

Re: bup PAWS and leg discomfort/pain

washingtonian (sorry if I get your name wrong, i forgot to cut and paste it)- It could be PAWS or it could be that you have an actual injury and the suboxone was acting as a pain agent to hide or minimize the pain. I used to get terrible pain in my right sciatic nerve down at my leg. I went to my re...

Re: Why do I keep doing this to myself

I wrote a long reply a few weeks back but for some reason the system didn't save it and i didn't feel like writing it out again. So I am seriously considering going back on Suboxone. My life is pretty much out of control right now from a financial perspective. I don't have a ton of money left over a...

Michelle- Thank you for your response. It feels good to talk about it, even anonymously. I honestly am not sure if it gets me high or not.

Why do I keep doing this to myself

I haven't posted in a long time, I have been away. I quit Suboxone March 22nd of last year, after about 6 years on starting at 24mg. I tapered all the way down to 2mg then split that in half then in half again etc you all know the process. :P It's amazing how much this drug takes hold of our bodies ...

This post is amazing, I'm so glad I read it. I have read dozens of forums and researched suboxone from so many different angles, but it is very rare to read about how suboxone drains your personality. I understand that sub is an opiate, and I must credit sub for giving me time to get the rest of my ...
