tired of the game If you had NO wd's after 67 hrs you probably dont need suboxone. If I were off my doc for 8hrs I would know I needed more. When I stayed away from DOC I could feel it in with in the same day, so for sure 67 hrs I would be flipping out with wd's. I'm really not sure you need it or n...

I belive that is privite imformation, your employer has no idea what meds your taking unless you tell them. Noone has a right to give anyone your records unless you give them permission.

Smith jm Hello and I would agree that is the hardest thing to do is be honest and let our loved one down yet again. I feel your pain and I also love my hubby so much and hope I never have to hurt him again. I would say maybe try to skip a day in between your dosing. I would think that would not be s...

Sorry you are going through this and it is sad that doctors are not willing to help you. I would think it would be safer to put ;you on subs rather than WD's. Some of this Dr's I just have to question thier reasons for being a Dr. At this point I would agree with SWEET16, you have to care for yourse...

I would think being you have just started subs you will need more than .5 mg I started on 4 mg then you can go up if needed. I've read where people start at 8mg. I would take at least 4 mg to begin then adjust. You my feel your sibs but not get high off of it, not like oxy for sure.
Good luck
