Probation/Suboxone status (update)

Will methadone and buprenorphine together cause withdrawal? How do I stop precipitated withdrawal? What dose of buprenorphine is best? Do I have to be in withdrawal to start Suboxone?

Probation/Suboxone status (update)

Post by scwis » Tue Dec 20, 2011 6:33 pm

I dont really know if this is worth a new thread but i figured some people on probation and suboxone can look at this and feel better about there situation i guess. I jus got put on probation and started suboxone for the second time today. My probation officer is a pretty nice guy and agreed with me gonig on the sub. He also reminded me that it wasnt a long term treatment but short term, which i could have disputed but i chose not to. I also was feeling terrible this morning withdraw-wise but I am felling a million times better. Anyone on probation, just tell your officer whats going on and be honest and you should not have any problems. I know some p.os are sticklers but still just be honest its for the best. I am so excited to be back on sub i already feel better, and am very excited to try and start my life over. By the way my felony was for manufacture/deliver which was suboxone, so if anyone is in the same situation this is proof that you can still be on suboxone with this charge. I hope everyone the best that is having issues with a p.o. about being on the sub. Actually I wish everyone the best that is still using, going through this treatment, or have succesfully or unsuccesfully finished the treatment. I also recommend that anybody that is on treatment to get counseling....I know some doctors require this, but if not it is a really good idea. I go three times a week and it really helps. I actually look forward to going to a place where i wont be judged and can discuss problems that all the other people are having. Its kinda like this forum just a little bit better :). This is the beginning of a long journey but I am definantley ready and excited!!!
