Not sure what ur question is

Yes you can take percs but they probably won't be needed. Usually after having a baby pain relief is not needed. Unless you tear like I did and had to have stitches. But...I certainly would not breast feed if I took something else. From what I have read it is kind of a good thing to continue taking ...

go to an NA meeting. Even if you can talk to “normal” people, go to a meeting anyway. They are easy to find and even though it is scary as hell walking in your first time, you’d be surprised at how it makes you feel afterwards. If you go to a meeting and you don’t like it, try another one. ...

Methadone

Maybe you should go on methadone short term until you find a sub doctor. It take two days at most to get dosed at a clinic. I know it is hard to go from methadone to suboxone (72 hours methadone free) but before I dealt with too many days of discomfort I would consider that. And....U could get subox...

I know it's like a dream come true. I still can't believe it myself. I am on methadone but just not to be using opanas anymore is unbelievable. It's been two years to me the second longest period of time I have ever had in thirty years. Somewhere down the line it is good to start dealing with the dr...

Yes it's OK

There are quite a few people who smoke on suboxone. I live in NC and we do not have the Medical cards so our clinics and or doctors do not let you get away with it. Thats a pretty low dose you are on so I can not imagine them being to hard on you about it and especially with a medical card.
