Hi Jonboy!! I always smile when I read your posts! Thanks for that. I know absolutely nothing about coffee and depression except to say that when i used to have depressed episodes, i actually did feel better with my morning coffee. I wonder if there is some correlation between the two. However, caf...

Wonderful Read

I really got a lot out of all the replies. I must admit that prior to the reading of all the replies, I had my own opinion about whether or not I have suffered permanent damage or not to and from opiate abuse...I think I did.....as anytime I did indeed do without any opiates (abstinence) a year here...

I miss the connection sometimes

Yeah I never really minded driving there everyday either too much. Snow was a bit iffy at times but it was a way to stay connected to recovery daily plus, I have a wonderful counselor which is nit so often the case.

Update

BBoy I don't usually visit this forum too much anymore...I just felt like there was not enough methadone activity, although I must say I as a methadone client was offered a lot of support by all the people on this site.

I knew from the get go that I would be on either suboxone or methadone for the remainder of my life when I first sought out help two years ago. I have countless relapses and I am finally in the state of mind to accept that I am chronic. I take methadone. I tried suboxone twice and although I did ind...

Congrats

Really happy for you. I could read the excitement in your words that you feel such a relief to be gaining some of your independence plus the pain management. I too found such relief in the split dose method. I have went thru three teeth breaking off at the gumline (so the nerve is exposed) and some ...

I do not think they do peak and troughs for suboxone, but it is called serum blood level testing and a lot of clinics use it to determine several things. Dose increases and dose decreases. If your peak (4 hours after dosing) is high you can be toxic from methadone so they will immediately decrease y...

Do like Hat says Vicoden is an opiate so it's no different than the roxi's so it will delay your induction.

Spit out any saliva

If he will not let you try to subutex just to see if maybe it's the naxolene try spitting out any excess saliva after it absorbs/dissolves. Some people say they get relief from this.

There is always the chance that a medication will react in-adversely with someones make up. There is no way that a doctor can determine that IT IS NOT THE SUBOXONE.

I agree with Breezy I think given the amount of hydrocodone you were taking (????).... maybe the sub was too high of a dose.
