Re: NEW GENERIC STRIPS

So what does this mean for me, comsidering I'm in the Here to Help program?? I receive brand name Suboxone strips because of this program... they can't make me get the injection can they?? And yeah, my doc has brought the Sublocade up but he didn't really push it, just told me that the company is wi...

Re: Still unstable

Hey Danieb68, I agree with Amy, go have a mental health assessment done. It won't hurt anything, and you may need to be on separate medication just for the depression and anxiety. Sub has worked well for my depression, but everyone is different. I'm sorry you're having these issues. Please keep us p...

Re: Dropping from 24mg to 8mg

Hey Amy, No worries. Being a full time manager, student, and single mommy I totally understand. So I almost forgot to take my second dose tonight, and I only remembered because I started feeling puny. I'm not taking that as a good sign; I was hoping that the drop to 8mg would be completely painless....

Re: Why considering quitting?

I am not sure at this time where I will fall on the spectrum of Suboxone maintenance. A year, two years, 20 years... The rest of my life? Who knows? I keep my mind open, however, because I do know that I have been an addict in some form for 20 years, and it's just as likely as not that I may require...

Re: New Years Resolutions

I'm going to have to check that out 49stars. I am a southern gal that calls it like I see it myself, so it sounds like something I might enjoy listening to. Jenn- I also have some further research to do in regards to Keto. I just know that carbs are definitely my weak area, and keto is big about kee...

Re: Opinions About Subsux.com

Lilly and Jenn- That is absolutely absurd. That detox should certainly have their pants sued off!! That makes me so sad for the people that that happened to. Now, I fully believe in educating yourself before committing to any type of medical procedure, but sometimes as Lilly said these "detoxes" wan...

Re: My "Dirty" Little Secret

49 stars- I get where you're coming from, but I'm personally scared of getting any kind of buzz, because like Amy said, that can and probably will trigger me to want to recreate that buzz more than once. Which is what got me here to begin with. That very thought- "hey, that was a nice feeling... Let...

Re: Dropping from 24mg to 8mg

Hey guys- So I think Ive successfully dropped on down to 16mgs daily. I think I'm gonna finish the month out at that then start dropping it down to 8mg daily. I'm not going to tell the doc, however, because I am still getting them free until next December. I feel a bit guilty not telling my doctor, ...

Re: 30 days clean - My story of why I HAD to QUIT Suboxone

Hey DFG- I'm more than sorry to hear that you have all this going on on top of getting off of the subs. Congrats to you, by the way, because that is no easy feat in and of itself. With that being said, I tend to believe that there's a chance that your wife may have had this going on long before your...

Re: Opinions About Subsux.com

I went over to subsux to check it out because I hadn’t been there in a while. In one of the threads I found a link to one of MY threads here, and it kinda freaked me out. But that’s another story. One person said that her husband went to a 30 day detox to wean off 28mg Sub. They didn’t know WTF the...

I totally feel you there Acoustic! I have gained so much weight that it's really starting to take a toll on my health. I was supposed to start a keto diet/lifestyle change on the 1st, but I have yet to completely implement it. I've decided to ease myself into that the same way I eased myself onto Su...

Re: My "Dirty" Little Secret

In response to making Suboxone prescribing similar to methadone distribution- The difference, to me anyway, is that sub is not a full agonist like methadone. Have I gotten a buzz from it before? Sure. But if taken as prescribed and not abusing it, you get no "high" from it at all. That's the differe...

Hey Amy, I guess I misunderstood what you said- i think you were referring to one of your fellow counselors, not doctor's. That's my bad! This is where I pulled it from from one of the earlier posts in this topic: "Yes, I have already seen this in groups and just anecdotally around my clinic. And tw...

Happy early New Year my friends! I can honestly say that I don't have much negative to say in regards to this past year. In the years prior I was always talking about how it could have been better, how I should have done or not done this and that, etc.... Suboxone haa given me a new lease on life. M...

Happy early New Year's to y'all!! So here's the deal... Almost no one, besides y'all here at the forum, my doc and my friend that referred me to my doc know that I am using MAT to treat my addiction to opiates. There's several reasons for this; #1- I am a drug court participant, meaning that I have ...

Merry Belated Christmas to all!! So I think I've successfully dropped to 16mg a day now, taken at about 4am so I can go back to sleep and it'll (hopefully) absorb as efficiently as possible. Still afraid of going down to 8mg. I just picked up my second month out of twelve total free months of prescr...

It's quite alright. I wasn't exactly clear about which one because it was late and this Santa Clause has been awfully short on sleep here lately... I had been reading some older posts on this forum (circa 2010 to 2012) that started on a specific topic and wound up as a debate about whether or not pe...
