Re: Injecting suboxone

I completely understand the needle ritual. I used to just inject water and aspirate a hundred times to see the blood during my last few periods of sobriety. I was obsessed with needles. Now being on sub I could care less, even being an IV coke/meth user

Re: Injecting suboxone

I just had to try it and see what it was about, injecting sub that is.

Soooooo...i didn't notice anything at all. Like zero. I tried multiple times with multiple doses and nothing happened. Not a buzz or any change in mood or feeling. IV sub is ret*rded I'll stick to sub-lingual

Re: 1 is all you need?

Yes lol I find it funny how the biggest heroin dealer in history ends up on sub!

Did u hear about alphabay? The owners stole 12 million in bitcoin. The operator was arrested and killed himself in a Thai jail cell a few days ago. Bitcoin has been crashing since. Everyone is fleeing to Hansa and Dream

Re: bupe and sexual function in men

Before I became an every day user, my favorite place in misusing opiates such as oxycodone, heroin, and bupe was for sexual reasons. It helped to delay ejaculation by having a "numbing" effect. I know many people who use opiates strictly for this reason. Meek Mill put in one of his songs "In the bed...

Re: Vivitrol being pushed in law enforcement

Isn't the world health organization saying that methadone and bupe are the essential medications to treat opioid dependence? I've tried vivitrol so many times, it helped with cravings until about day 21, then cravings spiked like never before. It's expensive too. My thing is, I only know one person ...

Re: Back pain

The pain definitely is not psychosomatic. I have found that when I dose every 4-6 hours it relieves me of the back pain. When I get outside that range of dosing the back pain becomes terrible! Ps the only reason I cited that study is because it is one of two listed on the pamphlet when I get my sub ...

Sleep

Sometimes sub makes me sleepy during the day. But I cannot sleep at a decent time if my life depended on it! I wish I could have the perfect 8 hour window of 10pm-6am, but no no no for whatever reason I can't sleep until 345 am every night. I've tried herbal teas, Ambien (works half the time, but ca...

Still Craving

I'm on 16 mg a day and I'm still craving. I really want to shoot heroin. I've been on this for about 5 months and it was working good until lately. My doctor said if I'm getting cravings at this dose than it's not working for me and I have to get on methadone. But I can't. I don't have a car to go t...

I do SMART meetings because I was kicked out of AA for being on suboxone.

Re: Back pain

I suffer from chronic back pain, and used opiates for fun and because it helped with the pain. So I suppose both. I am addicted to manu other drugs and by no means am I not an opioid addict. As for muscle relaxers, I've tried flexeril/cyclobenzoprine and Robaxin. Both make me tired as ever, especial...

I've read on the suboxone side effect pamphlets that back pain is a side effect of taking suboxone. I've noticed that my lower back pain has worsened tremendously since starting the medication.

Re: Injecting suboxone

Why is naloxone in suboxone? I thought it was to prevent people from IVing because if you shoot it the Narcan kicks in. Why does a 4 MG Narcan nasal spray cost sometimes hundreds of dollars but the 2 mg of Narcan in suboxone cost like what $4..? Counties are stopping buying Narcan because it is so e...
