I agree with Ironic, it is extremely frustrating to know that so many Drs simply don't give a shit if we suffer thru pain. If it were me and could get full agonists a week prior I would definately switch. According to Dr Junig you would require around 60mg a day of oxy just to break even and stay ou...

I am very sorry that your test came back positive. HIV is not the death sentence it used to be, many people live relatively normal lives with HIV. Besides possibly requiring pain relief, I do not see any reason your dr would want you to get off sub but I do not know much about HIV. A lot of people h...

As I posted above I completely agree about the legality issue, as "free" American's we should be able to do anything we choose with our own bodies. I just don't agree that the government should be supplying it's drug addicted citizens with their doc. As Tear said above, there are people that have no...

I agree with some of what you said, if her friend is in a bad spot or considering leaving then I would listen. Hat has medical problems which I will not list here as it is her business. When she is under stress her symptoms flare up with a vengeance. I am talking about listening to the same old ever...

I think if you can then go for it. I would set up a free consult with a lawyer to find out if a lawsuit for inadequate pain relief will fly. There are also sites where lawyers will answer legal questions for free ( I believe lawyers.com is one). If a lawyer thinks you have a case then go for it. It ...

In my opinion you are in the right. She knows how you feel about this guy and the effect he has on her. If she chooses to keep communicating with him then that is her choice but it doesn't mean you have to approve and be negatively affected by it. I think it is selfish of her to expect you to listen...

I would talk to my Dr about switching to the tabs. The tabs do not irritate the mouth as much and may solve your problem.

That was like reading a novel, it had me on the edge of my seat. I am a sucker for a love story with a happy ending. It's weird how the things that rip some apart can make others closer. My husband and I have never split but we have had a rough couple of years and we too are much closer because of i...

Hi and welcome! I believe the main reason for the drug test is to test positive for opiates and secondly to maybe see if you are doing any other drugs. I do not think any sub Dr would turn away a patient that failed their first drug test for other drugs. Some Sub Drs don't mind if their patient's sm...

When I was on the film I would get nauseous too. I found if I ate something small 30 min or so before dosing it would help. Eating after just made it worse. I also hated the taste at first but got used to it and it didn't bother me at all. I hope the sames true for you.

I agree that the government shouldn't be able to tell us what we can and can not put in our bodies. That is not what's being discussed here, if it were then I would say go for it. This is the government supplying addicts with their heroin with tax payer money. A government has no business supplying ...

Hi, first I would like to thank you for your service to our country. I can not answer your question with absolute certainty but I do not believe the military tests for sub. Sub does not show on a standard opiate test and a specific test has to be given to detect it. I have read about other service m...
