I took Loratabs for 9 years and weaned myself down to (2) 10's a day but could never quit. I started the Suboxone program a little over a year ago and am wondering what is the best/ easiest way to get off this stuff? I am currently on 8mg's daily. According to my doctor I will be on Suboxone for the rest of my life. However, I cannot continue to keep taking Suboxone because it has been making me feel severely depressed for months and I don't know how much longer I can take feeling like this. *Also, someone mentioned Subutex, does anyone know anything about this drug or is it identical to Suboxone?

I think telling someone they'll be on subutex for life is a crock. That's just me. I used opiates for decades and used subutex to stop. Here is a link that explains the way I did it and how I suggest tapering for others. You're on and off totally clean in 6-8 weeks. We have a LOT of people on the drugs.com forum on subs right now. I do it every day. Here is the link. Let me know if you want some help. Good luck and God bless. :)
