Re: Where in the World is Doctor Jeff Junig?

As ever generalizations are so often wide of the reality of the many who don't fit the brush they are being tarred with and in this case the descrip...

Re: Dr. In florida that accepts BCBS

It is going to be a lot of phone calls to find someone who takes insurance. I spent two days and was able to find one and one only. The rest all want cash. If I ever decide to move then it may be time to get off the Suboxone. So I guess I'll never move! i hope you can at least use insurance for you...

Re: "Aortobifemoral Bypass Surgery" on 9/18/19 VERY Scared

Sub doc put me on 8mg a day (pill form) but when I tried that it made me sick to my stomach so I bought a pill cutter and started cutting them in half to 4mg. I feel rough at work when I'm on just 2mg but I have 3 weeks until surgery. I'm sure I can get ta 2 by then. I don't have another doctor/sur...

My 13 year old has said for years, since he was too young to know anything about lucid dreaming, that he’s able to change his dreams because he normally recognizes that he’s dreaming in his dreams. I cannot do this, if I’m dreaming then it’s really happening as far as I know until I wake up and eve...

Re: Nightmares and Dreamscapes

When I first started suboxone, I couldn't barely sleep at all. However I did some research and bought melatonin 10mg pills and also swiss relax & sleep pills. I now sleep on average 8 hours a night and have a very good night habit of reading something for an hour or two before bed. A good routine a...

but won't ataivan and klonpin both show up as benzos? you would just test positive for benzos which they prescribed to you.

Re: 85 days..

the whole point of suboxone is that you can taper off of it after stabilizing your addiction and life. some might stay on long term, some might be on a year and taper off. everyone is different. the goal is to not be in active addiction and chasing your doc. if you taper off gradually enough you may...

i'm not understanding the yo-yoing if you are trying to get that well being feeling you first got? why would you take less, then wait so long to take more? you just need to pick a dose and stay with it! also 16mg seems high to me. there is a way to figure out the morphine equivalence to the codeine ...
