Re: Concerned Mom With Questions

If he stopped the sub to use heroin I would say that the Suboxone was blocking the herion if he tried to use herion and called the ambulance. Ask him why he doesn't take the Suboxone as prescribed or at least why he feels he doesn't need to take it twice a day. He's on a dangerous path if he decides...

Re: Concerned Mom With Questions

One can inject in that amount of time. I would ask him what is wrong. If it is not the occasional clearing of ones throat and not normal chances are he probably is snorting/injecting something. Can you ask him why he's making those noises? See what he says. Our instincts are usually right I'm sure y...

Re: Concerned Mom With Questions

Does he seem intoxicated at all? I'm assuming he has used heroin before.

Re: Concerned Mom With Questions

If he's been taking the drug for six years I would say no he isn't getting high. It sounds like to me if he is snorting or trying to snort Subxone, it sounds like he hasn't broken that particular pattern. In other words it is psychological even though his attempts are futile. There a a lot of factor...

Re: High Dose Withdrawal

The amazing thing about Suboxone for me was how it took away the psychological part of addiction. Like the moderator said I wasn't counting my pills and allowed me time to focus on other things. It also helped with the physical withdrawal. When I could afford Suboxone I didn't give it any thought th...

Re: so what really happens to the cravings?

This is what I noticed. Suboxone has two purposes. It quells the physical and the psychological urge. The physical was big but the psychological part was a HUDGE thing for me. Other opiates will hold back the psychical urge but they do nothing for the psychological urges such as when one feels the n...

Re: I relapsed and need reassurance and help, new member

A key mechinasm of physcological addiction are statements "I expected to take heroin for one night then stop. If I was doing heroin I would tell myself (I know it is easier said then done) but this is trying to condition the thought process. I would try to tell myself if "if I do Herion I am not goi...

Re: My process getting off suboxone

Re: life after suboxone

tfish did you have a 5 second pause before taking the suboxone? Did you give a conscious thought and then say to yourself i will deal with it later, rationalizing? Also I admit I totally failed in responding. I had linking/compilation errors. :roll: anyway I read through the last part of April. You...

Jada The situation you described sounds like your husband is actively using and is in and out of withdrawal. The sleeping all day(if he is even sleeping) is looking for relief sleeping is a way he would do this to not feel the pains of withdrawal. He probably curses the moment he wakes up because th...

Re: Pharmacy gave me extra

Hello Steph. A few questions. Did you actually look at the prescription? Are you sure it was for 20? Anyway it will be ok. Even if it is the pharmacy's fault, the chances they will take them and restock the strips is null, or 0. You can talk to your dr and maybe have him call in the extra 20. Either...
