Re: abusing subs with h and having a hard time getting stabl

Hi, Thanks for asking how I am doing. I have to say I am doing quite well. I am stable on 4 mg and taking it at night just before bed say 10 to 10:30. Don't want to begin fluctuating the time by too much. I am able to sleep, work, eat etc . I have returned to a normal state. No cravings or urges and...

Re: abusing subs with h and having a hard time getting stabl

I was able to get by with 7 mg Wed. and Today I was able to go to work and only took 2 mg upon waking. (The last couple of days I have been adding every few hours as needed till I got stable). I took the 2 mg at 4:30 am and another 2 mg at 4:30 pm. I feel very close to normal although I struggled th...

Re: abusing subs with h and having a hard time getting stabl

Amy, Thanks for reply. Shortly after the last post I got to thinking and decided to add another 2mg today which makes 8. I do feel better, I even think I can go to work Thursday. I am going to try 4 mg in the morning and split dose (if needed) 4 mg evening or night. Maybe a 4 / 2 morning night dose....

Re: abusing subs with h and having a hard time getting stabl

Today I am starting to feel like I am going to make it. I think by tomorrow I should be feeling pretty good since today I would say I am about 70 to 80%. I am still at 6 mg but will increase if I feel the need. Meaning before I do something stupid like use again I would add 2 mg and wait to see if t...

Re: abusing subs with h and having a hard time getting stabl

Been doing pretty good until today I woke up ill as hell and subs would not bring me out of it. Dam it I used again and have to get this right.

Re: abusing subs with h and having a hard time getting stabl

There is no way I can afford or would consider going to inpatient treatment. Been there done that. I had gone to a place called Narconon a few years back and it did not help. Just like all other places I had been to. They have you go to meetings hear old war stories and I have never had any producti...

Re: abusing subs with h and having a hard time getting stabl

Hi Jen, I had a better day today than I anticipated. I made it through work without any "mishaps" and don't think I will have any trouble tomorrow either. I did not sleep well last night I was overthinking how today was going to go. I was a bit foggy upon waking but got up early by a bit, 4:00 am. I...

Re: Successful Induction from Dihydrocodeine (UK)

Hi Zon, I am happy to hear all went well for you. I figured it would. I understand the stress of the whole situation and the thoughts and feeling you have are not unlike what most people feel. It is good to know it seems that you may have more control over your doses than you initially thought. I al...

Re: Induction Dose in 18 Hours - Still not withdrawing.

As long as your in moderate withdrawal all should go well. I think it should catch up with you before the time for induction. Try to drink water to flush your system it can't hurt. Just hang in there all should be ok. Please keep us updated as to how this plays out. Good luck!

Re: abusing subs with h and having a hard time getting stabl

Still hanging in there. I am having a rough go of it however. I ended up using a small amount of h yesterday and am kicking myself in the ass. Boy I am not happy about my addictive behavior, I can blame it on not feeling so well but I knew I had to go through this to make it to the other side. I hav...

Re: Does it matter how heavy your habit is before induction.

Zon, I would definitely law low till your induction at this point. I wouldn't worry too much about what you have taken already what's done is done. Moving forward however I would try to take as little as possible even if it means you have to not feel well. The time will go slow and suck but we've al...

Re: Does it matter how heavy your habit is before induction.

Hi Zon, Just wanted to tell you that precipitated withdrawal is nothing to play around with. I am in a bit of a different situation right now but have had experience with suboxone inductions more than once. If done correctly the induction will give you relief rather quickly. I would definitely take ...

Re: abusing subs with h and having a hard time getting stabl

Made it through midnight and then took 2 mgs. I woke around 6 and felt a bit off yet and took another 1 mg. I feel ok but know the first few days here that I have a detox going on underneath the process of trying to get adjusted on subs again. I think I will just go with 3 mgs tonight. Been trying t...

Hi Jen, I am still working at it. I have found that if I take my dose in the middle of the night say like midnight that when I wake I felt good till the next "midnight" comes around. This was before I got all messed up but I do think I am coming around at this point. Jen in theory taking a higher do...

Re: abusing subs with h and having a hard time getting stabl

It's been six hours since I used the last of my h. I can say if this was yesterday I would have scored more out of fear of "needing it". I have had time to sort my thoughts and am beginning to feel better about the entire outcome. I think the fear of withdrawal is often a huge mental obstacle to ove...
