Been on norco for 10 years for back pain. Also started adding soma to the mix 2 years ago. Following recent surgery, narco became more available. Over the 10 years, Usage has increased from 4 norco daily to current 8 per day plus soma. Appointment next week with suboxone provider as my "taper plan" is not working worth a @#¥#! Scared to death and don't know what to expect. Any suggestions?

42 hours and counting until appt to begin suboxone. Trying to taper and run out of medicine at 16/24 hours before visit. Still scared but truly appreciate the support and great input available here. Thank you for your experience, strength and hope--also, prayers.

Dear RMMalloy, welcome to then site. To reach Robert, go to the blue banner, look under it to the forum/discussion board prompt, click that and start a thread to him there. I know you're anxious, make sure you stay off ANY opiate for at least 24 hours and Get an addiction therapist, and you will probably be great. Many people skip the addiction therapy, do yourself a bid favor and do it. It greatly increases your recovery success rate and therapy teaches you to avoid triggers. In your case, they might find alternative pain relieving options. Therenis nothing to really be afraid of. Best of luck, patti
