I started on suboxone once before when getting off loratab. I was told by Dr. to suffer as long as I could before taking and I was wondering if that is the same case now - getting off herion. I am going to start back on suboxone and "as long as I can" I am afraid is not going to be very long. I am not feeling well at all and so ready to feel better... I can wait though if I need too, but if there is no reason to, then by all means I don't want to. Hope this makes sense.
