Re: NEED DRUG TEST ADVICE, PLEASE

<<"They are ALOT more expensive than a regular drug screen">> That's actually a myth. You can find tests for bupe for under a dollar pretty easily. Not that it matters much because everything else you said was spot on. I just found it strange how cheap they actually are because I had always heard th...

Unfortunately it's not always as simple as providing a script for some jobs.. There are jobs out there that prohibit an employee from using subs (or any narcotic) - even when legally prescribed. I would imagine the health care fieldwould probably fall into that category- though I have no first hand ...

In addition to what lillyval said about your dr giving you enough for the move he/she might give you a referral to a new dr in your new location. That might save you the initial induction fees- since you've already paid for them. Run it by your current dr and see how they suggest you handle it I say...

. The big drawback with this method is it is too easy, so will always be tempting to go on another binge, knowing you can get back on the subs easy enough. Hence why I've been gone for a while :-(. I am now on 7.6 mg daily and am tapering down to 6mg where I will stay until I figure out wether abso...

Cool... This is a good idea. I like it. Thanks. As someone subjected to DOT testing I'm curious if its the same for me as it is for you. In my state it's your basic SAMSHA 5 panel test. When I was on subs I never felt anything but I hear its pretty common for people to get a buzz form subs so I'm su...

Yeah, I definitely blame my farts on other people- unless they're really good ones, I take credit for those. ;-)

But at least I don't kiss my dogs on the mouth- like the person below me does.

For me that was the only side effect of suboxone- unfortunately it's a big one... I think if you're careful (which it sounds like you are) you could definitely give tapering down a shot... Maybe this new romance is the spark you need to get completely off the subs? safely of course.. You never know....

Precipitated Withdrawal. I did it to myself twice. Once while driving in my work truck.

Rn, It's cool, no harm, no foul.. It's all good.. Remember, we've ALL been where you are and know how you're feeling. One of the things subs will allow you to do is deal with the guilt..

Lighten up RN, in the context of the topic it was perfectly acceptable to use the term "lucky". You're in a forum full of recovering addicts- theres not a person in here that hasnt been thru everything you have and wouldnt feel lucky if they could have tackled this at 35mg's per week . It was meant ...

I'm with Lilly on this one- I've just been trying to come up with a way to say it nicely. In this instance, sub would be the last thing I'd consider.. I'm not a big na/aa advocate for me personally, but for this instance that's the first thing I'd recommend. Man, I just can't see how a 35mg a week h...

Orange doll, No, he didn't tell them anything about the subs. He said it was a basic 5 panel hair test. I took a 10 panel urine test when I was on subs and didn't tell the company- passed with no problems. The DOT thing is kinda scary. So is your DUI incident. I don't understand that That's crazy
