I take 8 mg of Suboxone daily, but it doesn't seem to help much w/ my back pain. So I was just wondering, is it really that strong and is it really that addictive? I have no plans for getting off the subs. I've been on it since 8-6-09 and my life is getting sooo much better. I didn't realize what a fog I had been in. To me, the best part of the Subs is that I never crave hydrocodone anymore. In fact, I never think about it anymore, which is a miracle. And since it has now been 5 months, I am amazed to find than I can actually do things and live a normal (lol) life w/o the hydro, which I never ever thought would be possible. So I guess what I'm trying to say is, my life was so F***** up while I was using and is so much better now, if I have to stay on it for the rest of my life, that will be ok. Luckily we have good insurance right now so my monthly script only costs me $40.00, which is cheap compared to what I spent on the other. I mean, my monthly 60 hydros from the doc cost $7.50, it was the high prices I had to pay for them on the street when I took up my others before the month was up. You guys know what I'm talking about. I could never make them last a month, they were usually gone in 6 days. I am lucky to be alive. All praises to God!!! But I was just wondering about it being so strong cos I never feel anything from it and sometimes I have taken a double dose just to see, I am still an addict you know, still working on not abusing my medication. But Suboxone has done wonders for me, so I don't have any plans to quit just yet. I know we are all different, this is just how I feel and how it works for me. Sorry so long. Best wishes and prayers to all. Laura
