Jonathan I am rather new to this site maybe two months or so but found out quickly that it is always the same three that want to get all negative and up in somebody’s thread like their gospel is the truth and the light.

Pointer

One point I might would suggest is do not let yourself get into an extreme amount of pain in between doses of percs. When you become desperate to get rid of the pain you can and will waste some of your percs. When you feel the pain begin immediatley treat that pain etc...try not to think so much abo...

Joint Pain

Could it be though what Hat eluded to and the drugs you took prior to Suboxone mask the symptoms and now with Sub's the mask is uncovered? I have a rare side effect from lortabs.

To Taper or not to Taper is the very question

I guess the first thing I would be finding out is will this doc allow you to make up your own mind about the length of time you choose to be on subs. There are some docs out there that do only short/taper detoxes. If so I while I was doing this 3 week taper I would be on the phone calling around for...

I wonder what it is that drives her back?

Like I said earlier the disease of addiction surmounts any relationship we have when in active addiction and I hate to say it but I believe the draw he has over you being able to make sense to her and win over such a loser is the fact he is her drug outlet. When we want to use we will go around all ...

How does the math add up?

I am wondering paying every three months full price compared to paying discount/copay 12 times. Do the math and decide from there. I although have to agree it's hard when you have a doc you liike and the thought of changing even if the money issue were better is sometimes scary. Unless there was a h...

Doctors that don't give adequate pain medication I find have their minds made up way before you end up in their chair.
