Re: Finally figured out a great way for great absorption..

Ok so I did this for two days. The first day I used about a cup of water and 1/2 tsp of salt before my last two doses of the day and didn't notice much of a difference. So the second day I put about a teaspoon of salt instead of a half and I did notice that I had less salava in my mouth while the st...

Re: Finally figured out a great way for great absorption..

I know this is an older thread but a couple have replied recently. Someone asked if this salt water rinsing method of rinsing the mouth with salt water about 5 mins before dosing would actually help with the absorption of the strips, like it was doing with the pill form of Suboxone. Well I'm going t...

Hi Jenn! Hi Johnathon!You two are both pretty close to where I am and we are getting hit pretty hard. We have the essential working only and everyone in the state of Alabama must be home by 5 pm. But on a brighter note, I texted my clinic to see if I would have better luck finding out anything and t...

Re: Might try taking the strip between my gum and cheek

Ok so I go back to the Dr tomorrow and I'm going to talk to him about getting back on the 8 mg strips. This dosing 10 times a day is for the birds. I'm going to see what my options are. And thanks again to everyone that replied here. I got some really useful advice.

Re: Low appetite

Same here BlueLight, opiates gave me the strongest sugar cravings. When I discovered that cereal called Crave... OMG I was 100 percent addicted to it. I would keep several boxes of it at all times and they had the chocolate and the original flavors. Sometimes I would mix the two. Seems like I was on...

Re: Low appetite

I remember when I has a terrible car accident back in 1992 and was hospitalized for 3 months, I had lost so much weight and to dr was sending a nutritious protein shake with each meal but I was losing so much weight. It wasn't until my parents started bringing me a peach milkshake every night that m...

Re: Switching from the strip to the pill

Thank you so much Amy. I really appreciate you explaining what was on your mind that day. Yes we all are guilty of the overthinking, myself included. I really appreciate everyone's comment here. I honestly don't know what the heck I'm going to do. I go back to the dr in 9 days so I need to hurry up ...

Re: Going from Suboxone to MS Contin

It does sound like you have got to the mental phase of getting off the Suboxone, or PAWS. I feel like as you go up on your pain meds dose that it will help some but just be aware that you may just be going through a quick phase of paws. Hang in there buddy, this will pass. Your forum friend, Angie

OH your fine Jenn Jenn. I'm really enjoying reading all these different takes on everything. I am a little taken aback by Amy's reply. I'm not so sure my dr would easily adjust my dose upwards when the main concern here is weening down and eventually coming off the Subs. It's that way at this clinic...

Switching from the strip to the pill

I'm just curious if there have been any Suboxone patients who have switching to the pill form because they wanted to. I have heard of people switching from the strip to the generic pill form due to insurance reasons but never just by choice. Also, if you have switched how does it compare to taking t...

Oh geez I'm scared to death to switch to the pill formula. I have taken the strips for almost 3 years now and it's all I know. I think I will start another thread about stitching to the pill form from the strip and see what everyone has to say about it first bc I have never heard of anyone doing tha...

Oh wow sorry to hear that BlueLight, about the nerve damage. It sound like it could have been a lot worse considering everything that you were consuming. That vodka is something else. I used to binge drink that from time to time. I'm so glad that you were able to quit the drinking and drugging and f...

Re: ugh I'm Back!

So I'm wondering if it's the Subs making you sick or the cut back. You said that at 8 mg that your sick and then when you cut back to the 4 mg you were sick a couple of weeks later. Bless your heart that's a lot of sickness. I hope that you can get to the bottom of all this and I hope the mj and oth...
