Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Been on pills 2 years the complete rat race of another pill and my days and weeks had to be planned accordingly to my stock of pills. You know the drill. Finally I decided I'm not going to live like this anymore. Jail, death or suboxone - I chose suboxone. I waited the required time, I actually waited longer about 38 hours the first 15 min withdrawal gone I was actually very disappointed I thought I would feel a lot better. But after an hour and then 2 hours I felt like I had never had a pain pill in my life. It was the real me again I felt totally normal!!!! WOW I could think clearly and had a great outlook on life If you are considering this drug DO IT!!! It's legal and you will begin to get your life back DO IT!!!!!"

Bunavail (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Bunavail takes forever to dissolve. I timed my last dose (by the way im day 5 on Bunavail) & no kidding it took near 3hrs to fully dissolve! It also cakes up quite a bit on gums teeth. NOW the Pro's, it last all day from morning through night till next morning... that's a single film! It taste wonderful and yuck and burn sensation i got occasionally under tongue with Suboxone. Now there's no dopey high like u get on subs, more like a sedative but happy vibe just not High as a kite. As i said im day 5 on Bunavail and i still prefer Suboxone but wanna finish the month on it to give a fair shake."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I was taking 1000-2000mg of Codine a day for 2 years. I spent a day reading all the reviews on Suboxone as my Doctor wanted to start me on it. I was really worried cause there were no bad reviews. I started my first dose of Suboxone two days ago and I feel amazing. The only side effect is a slight headache. Anyone with an Opiate addiction this is the drug of help."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I just want to share with anyone thinking about using this med. I have been on LOTS of oxycodone ever since my daughter was born 5 years ago. I was always trying to figure out how to get my next batch because I would run out of my script early every month. I loved the way they made me feel at first!! I loved the energy and the happiness I got from them but it only lasted a short time before it was gone and I needed more and more. Then I was always scared of being without because I knew the withdrawals would be hell! So basically, my life was constantly thinking about those oxycodone! I finally got fed up and found a suboxone doc. Been on a week and feel amazing!!DO IT if u have an addiction problem! U won't regret it! It has saved my life!"

Zubsolv (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I have been switched to zubsolv from suboxone 8 mg so far I am not feeling as fatigued as I use to on the suboxone. The effects of the zubsolv do hit you faster. However I am worried about how long the medicine will last I am afraid it won't last as long as my suboxone strip did."

Zubsolv (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "For 2 days I took suboxone film (8mg) and the taste a long with the long dissolve time was dissatisfying. So my doctor switched me to zubsolv (5.7) and I could not be happier; the taste is amazing and it dissolves in 3-5 minutes not to mention (a long with a coupon) I received my first prescription for free:)."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I was medically addicted to oxycodone for several years.I had 5 c-sections to deliver my 5 wonderful children. I developed a hernia and was on oxycodone for several years. My doctor left..and I was a mess. I turned to buying on the street. Working 40 hrs a week, full time college, training my daughters majorette squad, and caring for my mother (seeing as she had 5 hip surgeries in her 70's). All of this and 5 kids ages 10, 5, 4, 1 and newborn. I lost everything. Trying to stay "well" everyday was my only goal.Then I found a suboxone program. Life changing!!! With doctor, group, therapy..the suboxone gave my mind time to slow down and reflect on my life. No withdrawls and a clear mind.. It's amazing. You can be successful with the suboxone and therapy!!"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Addicted to heroin/dilaudid (hydromorphone) & pretty much ANYTHING injectable steady daily for over 5 yrs. Went onto methadone thru a clinic after over a year on waiting list. On methadone for 18 months w/good results (no use) but didn't want to be in a clinic setting daily to medicate & ultimately want to be med free- Doc tapered my methadone dose in order to switch me to suboxone in the hopes of then tapering me to no meds. Doc felt it was best chance at achieving my goal of zero meds w/continued sobriety. It took nearly 5 days to alleviate the withdrawal from methadone even after tapering to less than 50mg daily & not dosing for several days in an attempt to lower my levels. Very very difficult transition for me. Hopefully a good choice"

For Opiate Dependence: "Works very well if used as directed. Tabs are better for me because strips killed my tongue. You will get severe constipation, so take 2-3 docusate sodium per day - it is a stool softener, and also a mild laxative. Once I got these two issues worked out, I've been very happy with this. Will save you if you want it to!"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "This drug has saved me from the disease of addiction. My use of opiates was out of control and kept getting more and more dangerous. I was at the point where I was cutting up Fentanyl strips and chewing them and sucking the Fentanyl out. Fentanyl is 50x stronger than oral Morphine or Vicodin so I was def playing with fire. Some people mentioned the Suboxone making you itchy, if this happens talk to your Doctor about a drug called Vistaril. It is a prescription strength antihistamine that they use many times for rashes or itchy skin. I have been on it for years and it works great!"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Prescribed suboxone to treat chronic pain. Medication is very effective treating pain - far better than opiates, anti seizure meds and antidepressants. Does cause some mouth tenderness and nausea. No mental status changes experienced while taking suboxone (unlike opiates do.) Suboxone provides coupon card to cover my copay. Out of pocket expense is $0."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Had a rip roaring oxycodone addiction, always chasing living in a nightmare, no money at all. Once I got on Suboxone life has done a 180. If you are in that cycle of addiction, go get Suboxone, you will not look back."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I had been on pain killers for 17 yrs. The last 5 of which were Percocets, morphine, Roxinol, OxyContin, oxycodone, fentanyl patches you name it they had me on it. After a three year battle from a botched gastric bypass surgery I was medically addicted to opiates terribly. I got to where I was prescribed 180 Percocet 10mg a month for all my pain and was still buying 100 a month on the street. I got so sick and tired of being sick and tired, I reached out for help. After several attempts trying to find a pain clinic to put me on it for my debilitating pain, I finally went into a treatment facility. Not only did Suboxone get rid of craving for pills, IT TOOK CARE OF MY PAIN better than any other pain medicine I'd ever had. I have my life back."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Hi all!! I have been clean now for 72 hours from a 400-500mg a day 3 year oxycodone habit. I started suboxone 24 hours ago. I held out as long as I could with withdrawal so I didnt risk the chance of precipitated withdrawal. I initially broke an 8 mg tablet into 4 pieces to equal 2mg. Within a half hour I could NOT believe how much better I felt. I still had some body aches which were easily relieved with ibuprofen and I still have diarrhea but its occasional Other than that I feel amazing and I feel free. I am so blessed to be able to have my life back. I have a goal of a 6 month taper. I am also a nurse and I can tell you that I held an oxycodone in my hand at work and do not have a SINGLE urge. It was so empowering. Good luck to you!"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I started taking this medication out of desperation. I was taking 50 pills a day: a mix of norco, methadone and tramadol. After multiple emergency room trips and close calls..I knew I had to do something quick or I wouldn't live to see my 6 year old son grow up. I was referred to Suboxone doctor. After a few different doctors (most were not educated enough on addiction) I found a decent one. I started on 12mg a day and I have now made it off Suboxone in almost exactly 1 years time. I did experience withdrawels while I tapered down but it was bearable. I was able to save my business, become a better father and most of all re-learn who I am and discover my purpose. I recommend this to anyone suffering from Opiate addiction."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Suboxone changed my life! Is it that magic pill that everyone is looking for that solves all of our problems? No. If you don't change things about yourself, and or change your behavior, you'll just be a drug addict with character defects on Suboxone. If you are an addict, like me, then you know what its like to be a slave to a drug. Its an insane, non-stop, & endless quest to get our drug of choice every day. Suboxone makes it possible to not live that way. Wish they had generics though."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I owe my life to sub's I was on 360,30 milligram oxycodones a month from my pain doctor for 6 out of the last 8 years.I'm clean now 28 days on suboxone now I'm starting to feel more alive and getting my life back is awesome. Its neat to actually have real emotions back that I haven't felt in years. Its like I've been in a dream for _8 years I only hope the sub's aren't as extreme to get off when I'm ready .god bless."

Bunavail (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I have been taking the 8mg suboxene strip for a while now. My insurance doesnt cover suboxene so my doctor wrote a script to try Bunavail since it would be free with a voucher.Yesterday was my first day on it and i already like it WAY more than subs. Postive things about Bunavail: it doesn't have that nasty sub taste. It doesnt give you that feeling that your ok for part of the day then need to keep taking more. With subs i would have to keep taking pieces just 2 get through the day With the Bunavail i took 1 patch to the cheek whixh is 4mg and i havent felt this normal in years! I actually feel great! I can go through the day With no urges. Negative is that it takes FOREVER to dissolve on your cheek. FINALLY feel like im not taking a drug"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I was addicted to opiates and have been on Suboxone for approx. 5 years. I started on 12 mg and have weened down to 4mg a day. My only issue with this is the length of time I have been taking it. The majority of Docs that prescribe Sub. do not want you to ween off and ultimately quit. It works however I feel as though a person should not be on it for more than 3 years and most Docs would rather keep you as a patient and on Suboxone for monetary reasons. My only advice to anyone looking to start on Sub. would be to find a good Doc. and make sure there is a somewhat short term plan to ween off and quit."

Zubsolv (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I have been on Suboxone for 4 months. I was just switched to Zubsolv because the taste of the Suboxone made me nauseated. So I was switched I've been using this product for 3 days now. I think it works wonderful. I have no side effects that I've noticed. I love the taste so no more nausea."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I was addicted to any type of pill I could possibly find, from oxycodone to roxy and everything in between. My addiction ruined everything that I held precious to me and it lasted from the time I was 16 till I was 20. I withdrew cold turkey for a week and then finally got put on Suboxone. I was taking 3 8mg strip a day for 2 years. I have finally been off of it for almost a year now. The hardest part was coming off the Suboxone it took me about 6 to 8 months to completely come off of it. And slowly but surely I am now going to be 3 years sober. Suboxone saved my life and gave me everything back that I have ever wanted and more. I would recommend this medicine to anyone who is having problems with addiction. It was truly a God send."
