Ive been on suboxone for about 3 years and have recently started tapering down dosage. The 2nd day was the worse! Every 2-3 days I have ended up getting a few pain pills and Im not sure if that is hurting or helping any - it certainly helps at the time but I can actually feel the pill when its waring off! Today is day 8 and Im feeling better, not great or wonderful but better. Yesterday I made myself go for a walk and last nite a friend gave me a 10mg lorcet - is that prolonging my misery? It really made me feel better - I never thought I would see the day that I said 1 lorcet made me feel better! Before I started suboxone I had been on pain meds-anything in opiate family except h, cant stand needles!
