Re: Side effects after YEARS on sub?

I'm a house painter so I really feel it, even in the winter time!! During the summer, I literally had to take my shirt off and I was dripping with sweat like crazy and it was getting in my eyes, making it hard to work as it stings the eyes. Luckily it is now winter and my co-workers laugh when I arr...

Re: constipation. shit

In Australia, I eat Kellogs All Bran and I have a regular bowel movement every morning. I'm on 12mg of suboxone. Fibre is the key for going to the toilet every day. I eat about 2 serves of it.

Re: Suboxone withdrawl day 13

I just wanted to send a warning as some people confuse gabapentin with lyrica. They are both for the same thing but I think lyrica is worse because of the suicidal tendencies, depression and euphoria associated with it.

Re: HOW do you take your Suboxone?

The hospital I was at even had a pharmacy in-side of it. Luckily on day 4 one of the nurses got me the suboxone from there but by that stage I was pretty bad, LOL!
I know I'm withdrawing badly when every-thing starts to taste and smell really bad...

Re: Suboxone withdrawl day 13

Whatever you guys do, do not ever take lyrica as a way to bounce back from opiate withdrawal. Lyrica is worse than any opiate and there is even a very busy facebook survivors group warning against the drug. I spent 12 days in hospital when I stopped taking lyrica, as it threw me into a deep depressi...

Re: HOW do you take your Suboxone?

Its been a-while guys and girls!!! I'm still taking it on-top of my tongue and I even swallow and talk immediately after placing it on my tongue. Yes, that's right. I actually swallow my saliva and I do mean as it is dis-solving and immediately after-wards. I find I do not feel any different at all,...

Re: The Ceiling

I've been on 8mg since day 3 of starting suboxone which was about 6 or 7 weeks or so ago. I had cravings for about 4 weeks but only when it was a few hours before I hit the pharmacy for my 8mg dose. With the last 2 or 3 weeks however, I have felt no cravings at all and I think it is because I have p...

Re: HOW do you take your Suboxone?

Thanks rule62 and Ashlee for the advice and welcoming! :wink: I did it on top of my tongue today and it took about 30 minutes to dissolve but I think it was because it was not long after I brushed my teeth and my mouth was super super dry being first thing in the morning. Its funny. Yesterday it sli...

Re: HOW do you take your Suboxone?

I loved it on the upper part of my mouth. Normally by the time I have my next dose, I am really hanging out for it but not this time. Okay, this time, I placed it in my lower gums, a little close to my teeth but we will see how it goes. It dissolved okay and I did the same thing, painted my mouth on...

Re: Why is my suboxone not lasting

Can you put the suboxone film inside your left or right cheek. Will it absorb pretty good there?
I hate under the tongue as I have issues with it not sticking too well.

Re: HOW do you take your Suboxone?

I just took a dose at the pharmacy a moment ago. This time, I place it firmly at the back of my mouth where the hard gums are. Waited for it to go gooey and then used my tongue to paint it around all of the back of mouth. I will let you guys know how I get on tomorrow at work. I always dose after wo...

Re: HOW do you take your Suboxone?

Awesome, good to know I am still getting the benefits. I don't need the oxys anymore now that I know I won't have to worry about absorption problems. Thanks for the tips too. What I have been doing is using my tongue to lick the upper part of my mouth ( the hard gum area) and soft gums too. Doing my...

Re: HOW do you take your Suboxone?

I'm a week new to taking suboxone. I know this going to sound stupid but my film always ends up on top of my tongue instead of underneath it and I'm just wondering if I will still be absorbing most of it or little at all? Just in case, I've been taking some oxy each day just in case I go into withdr...
