Re: Memory Loss , common ?

I have this issue also... I didn't see you list your age, but I am a 41 y/o male..and I used to remember phone numbers like you wouldn't believe. I could remember debit card numbers also.. and I still know mine and my wife's social, dl, and expirations. I am not sure it's attributed to sub. I think ...

Re: Articles to print and take to the doctor/hospital

THIS is exactly what I'm worried about. I have a shoulder injury (some sort of slap tear or something)... and the horror stories about shoulder surgery are scary... but I honestly thought it was muscle and just went to the doctor to appease my wife. On the paperwork, I didn't put anything about Subo...

Re: Switching to once a day

It depends on the amount of suboxone that you're prescribed to take daily. If you're taking less than 8mg-12mg, then it's quite possible you don't have enough to saturate the receptors and could feel some discomfort ... Why the switch to dosing 1x daily?

Re: Is this website legitimate for buying Suboxone online?

Is it just me, or does that website say they are out of NY???

I'm pretty sure that across the country, a CIII requires a prescription and anyone who receives a CIII without a prescription can face some pretty severe legal consequences. Just my thoughts.

Re: Kratom to ween off of 1mg habit

So my plan is to use it for about a week And just going by your own statements, you said you want to use it for about a week... gradually ween from the Kratom but also ween down gradually. That's going to be more than a week, there's no beating around the bush and trying to kid yourself about it.

Re: Kratom to ween off of 1mg habit

So my plan is to use it for about a week while the sub gets out of my system and to gradually ween from the Kratom - which I’ve done before. My understanding is that in order for it to have any considerable withdrawal effects, it must be used in high doses. I am 6 days off now, and definitely feeli...

Re: Dose no longer working?!?

I would DEFINITELY get your doctor involved in this. He's your liason in your journey to sobriety..and if you're in this level of discomfort, that's absolutely your go-to for this and the one person who can help you. Between 12mg-16mg should be around the ceiling level..but everyone's metabolism wor...

Re: Sandoz film

Yes, it's in a yellow packaging too. They seem to work...I don't have the cravings like I did with Reddy's. But I would still prefer the Sandoz or just stick to RB. It just seems like nobody else has the formulation and the fillers the way Indivior does for RB brand and Sandoz brand.

Re: Sandoz film

I had the same luck with Dr Reddy's...The Alvogen was all i could get this month...because of the pharmacy's screw-up...

The Alvogen does seem to be a bit better than Dr. Reddy's. But, I think I'll go back to the brand unless Sandoz is available.

Re: Sandoz film

Yes. Exactly the same issue that I'm facing. Either I have to pick brand name RB/Indivior, or I am stuck with the dr reddy's which presented some very unique things out of my 12 years in maintenance doses. I've explained what the dr reddy's did some, but to keep it short, lets just say that crap don...

Re: Old member new name

I can absolutely see a difference in the past 3 days, versus the previous month prior to the last 3 days. I had gotten to a point where I was craving the Dr. Reddy's version of the medicine. I could just taste it. It was like being thirsty and almost like craving water when you are thirsty. Except I...

So...an update... Returned to my doctor, albeit a week early, and explained that I was a week early and run completely out because I was having sweats, chills, sleep issues, etc with the dr. reddy's (that's ALL I've been given for the past 2-3 months)...and she was not the least bit concerned.

I don't know if it's just me or what..but the dr reddy's version of the 8/2 just doesn't seem like it's acting the same or doing what it is supposed to do..and that has caused me issues but...what can ya do...deal with it.
