Re: My method.......50 days off of long-term sub use

Also, believe it or not my mental acuity is coming back already. Libido too. The mental acuity thing is something I've been a bit concerned about. My memory hasn't been that great on Sub. While the lithium plays a big part in this I'm certain, it's good to know that things improve for people once t...

You don't feel any different off Suboxone than you did on it? Bboy do you feel methadone is stronger than Sub with this effect? I always felt methadone to be pretty strong in how it effected my emotions. There was a definite feeling of cotton wool. I could imagine in the period where you switched, a...

Try not taking it for three days. Even push through the detox and don't take it for three months. I guarantee you will have a change in perspective. I have been on and off buprenorphine and methadone a few times, and found that without a doubt being on Sub does inhibit / attenuate feelings. Things l...

It's an interesting campaign. I'm not sure about the laws in the US. Here there's a law that disallows the direct advertising of prescription medicine to the public, because if every patient went to their doctor requesting some medication they saw spruiked on TV, the doc wouldn't be able to make the...

I don't fear withdrawal. I've gong through withdrawal more times (probably) that the majority of the people reading this. I've done it -literally- hundreds of times. Are you kidding me? 30 years as a dope fiend, and I spent 20 of those years trying my best to quit. I'd use for two months, then swea...

Agreed guys. The first thing you're talking about - the blunting of emotions - this is not isolated to Suboxone. It is an effect of all opioids, and it is the reason why most of us loved them in the first place. Also, the extremes of emotion that come when you go for days without, and the crying ove...

It's normal to get a buzz the first time you go on Sub. But it's not long before the body gets tolerant to it. It'd be REALLY hard for you to do this I know, but I'd suggest maybe dropping your dose a lil bit so that you don't experience this feeling. Because it's going to fade away anyway. But if y...

It takes a while to be ready to give up that lifestyle in its entirety. The way I see it, Sub provides a kinda smoothe transition from active addiction into recovery. A person might not be ready to stop using completely, but sporadic periods of using Sub, even if they're not intending to stay on, ma...

I got headaches on Subutex, so at least for me that side-effect isn't only cos of the naloxone. As everyone said, the headaches do subside with time. However the fact that you're extremely tired may indicate your dose is still too high. It just depends on what kinda "tired" it is. Is it a drowsy, ey...

I'm sorry you mistook this for a place where everyone will agree with everything you say and tell you whatever you want to hear.

For me, getting pissed off at people like this is like getting pissed off at a person for being sick. They're in active addiction, just like I was. It's just they're not at a point yet where they're ready to recover. Maybe one day they will be prepared to give up. Pretty much everyone here has been ...

Glad to hear the transition went smoothly. Perhaps your son wasn't on methadone long enough for the stacking effect to kick in, so it wasn't as bad as someone switching from long term. Perhaps your doctor wanted more control over what he was on before transition, to know that he wasn't going to use ...

Your doctor is a retard. I was thinking today how ridiculous it would be to give someone who smokes 5 light cigarettes a day a full strength nicotine patch meant for someone who smokes 2 packs a day. They'd get SICK as FUCK. It is NO DIFFERENT for Suboxone. You may be feeling sick, but what may be h...

In what has been possibly the most intense romantic game of cat and mouse I've ever endured ... I spilled the beans about the Sub. She couldn't care.
