How long were you on 8mg? Maybe you were not stabilized yet and sweating more do to mild withdrawls. I also sweat terribly on my face and recieved some advice from coolgirl to try cinnamon pills. I have been taking them for four days and it has helped alot!. I can even wear make-up again!

new on sub and scared for my surgery!

So I just found out I have to have another surgery much sooner than I expected. I was hoping to wait until I was off sub. I am still so new in my recovery and have so much shame and guilt. I don't know how I would handle it if the hospital treats me like some piece of shit drug addict.There is a par...

Lilly, thanks for the info. I was a bit confused because I didn't even realize it could get you high until coming here and have been a little scared of it. Since I take such a low dose it is possible I don't feel it because me tolerance is already so high to opiates? I don't know maybe I am just get...

Hi bboy, Prior to my surgery in May I was a consistent 8 and at times up to a 10th. I would have never taken sub to help with that as oxy barely touched it. Since my surgery I would day I am between a 5-7. Being at a 5 i just use sub and ibuprofen and can knock it down a point or two. When I am havi...

Hi again quadracer, I wanted to clarify on my experience with tramadol. Like I said before I get absolutely no buzz of any kind off of it. I did not even realize it was an opiate until coming to this site a few weeks ago. In the few years there have been times that I have taken it consistently I jus...

This is interesting, before Sub I would drink 2-3 times a week. After I put my kids to sleep I would have a couple glasses of wine because it made my pain med more potent. Since I have been on Sub I have had zero interest in alcohol. I wonder what it is, in my case it must not be the opiate because ...

Hi everyone, I realize this is an old post but thought I would add what is now happening to me because of this law. I currently pay $750 per month to insure me and my children. I received a letter that my premium will be going up 40% Sep 1st. When I called and asked why I was informed that they have...

Hi Racer, I have used tramadol on and off for a few years. I do know some people abuse it but I get absolutely no feeling from it. It's like taking Tylenol except it works better. I have not had to up my dose at all, but I don't take it everyday all day. I get pretty decent pain relief from the tram...

I also sweat like crazy! I was the type who could go to the gym and workout and not need to shower. I never sweated before and I hate it now. I feel like I need to shower every hour and forget wearing make-up. But oh well I will take the sweats over addiction and pain any day! P.S. it probably doesn...

Hi everyone, I was on oxycontin for pain for 9 months. At first it worked but we all know that doesn't last. The Dr. kept increasing my dose and then in May I had surgery which did not take away all the pain but did knock it down. After surgery I still had enough pain that I needed something but abs...
