I have been researching different alternatives to treating chronic pain with opiate-based pain medications. I am allergic to all of the standard NSAIDs and have to rely on opiate-based pain medication. I do not want to become dependent on that kind of medication.
Therefore, I have taken it upon myself to research any meds that will control the chronic pain without the potential for dependency. During my research, I came across the medication called Suboxone. Its main use is to treat opiate dependency, but it also seems that it has a use as a pain medication as well.
Have you or anyone you know ever been prescribed Suboxone as a pain management medication? Is anyone aware of Suboxone having been prescribed for use as a pain medication?
