I'm not sure about Roxy since it is immediate release. I took Oxycontin (time release) by mouth and I waited around 30 hours and did fine. I think I probably would have been ok sooner but I was terrified of precip withdrawl so I decided to be safe rather than sorry. The COWS scale is the best thing ...

Hi and welcome! Congrats on taking this huge step and entering recovery! You said you got your prescription of sub, so I am assuming you are under a Drs care. Did your Dr go over induction? You have to be in mild to moderate withdrawl prior to starting Suboxone. You can Google the COWS scale to rate...

Hi and welcome! I agree with the above posts, getting help now will save you from a lot of pain and suffering later. You should open up to your psychiatrist and tell them exactly how you are feeling and that you have been self medicating. The amount of meds you are taking doesn't make you any less o...

The law is written as Dr. Junig described it. That's not to say there aren't Drs out there that will prescribe methadone. For your Dr to prescribe Methadone he would have to say he was prescribing it for pain. The other way he could have prescribed it is that he is involved at a methadone clinic and...

Lowering your dose should help with the symptoms you are describing. If you had less symptoms and felt better on 8mg I would drop back down. If you aren't feeling better on a lower dose or cravings return you can always go back up. Of course I am not a Dr and this is just my opinion based on persona...

I have never heard of this and would take it back to the pharmacy and show them. They should be able to help you figure out what's going on. Please keep us posted, I am curious to know what you find out.

I agree with hat and highly doubt this is sub related. You have been on sub for 4 years and are just now having this issue. I wish you a speedy recovery and hope your Dr is able to get to the bottom of what is causing this.

Unfortunately this is something that has happened to many. It could be a faulty test, a mix up at the lab, if your urine was left unattended someone could have switched it. I know how frustrating this must be, especially early in treatment. Really all you can do is maintain your innocence and know t...

I hope this works as well and agree it's smart to only give him the $40. I know how hard you work for your money and how pissed you must be to give any of it to that asshole but if it works you can move on with your life. You should be really proud of yourself and how far you've come.

I gotta agree with Romeo and Tear. Honestly if it were me I would take it one step further, if I could afford it I would just give the asshole the $200. I realize you did nothing wrong and do not owe him a damn thing. But in my view the bigger picture here is your and your child's safety. I'd be wil...

Reraise, have you told your sub Dr about your prostate problems? If you haven't it could clear up the problem so you are not getting the whispers. Also you can request that they draw blood instead. I have issues starting to urinate as well on sub. Sometimes it takes a bit to get going. I would have ...

When is it safe to begin tapering is the million dollar question. I'm not sure if there is really a right answer because this time line varies so greatly for all of us.

Once again Hat is right. Addiction is not the problem, he is. It is very common for abusive people to not seem abusive earlier in a relationship. It will continue to escalate over time.

Unless using sub for pain Dr Junig recommends once daily dosing. The reason for it is to break the habit of taking pills thru out the day. As addicts we are too in tune with every little ache and pain and we want to take something for it. Dosing once per day allows you to get out of your head and ev...

I'm with you both. This was posted on another thread and I commented there. There is also the fact that they put the subjects on sub for 3 months and tapered them off in only 4 weeks? I imagine the subjects had a miserable taper, withdrawl and paws. That is not a recipe for staying off opiates. To b...
