Reviews for Suboxone to treat Opiate Dependence

Sort by:

"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."

"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!"

"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!!"

"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"

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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 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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"After a short addiction to roxicodone I was steered into a methadone clinic and I tried to quit for a little over 2 years and I just couldn't do it cold turkey! I've been on Subutex and Suboxone. They both are amazing! Saved my life! I just wish more people were educated on this medication. I have never gotten "high" from buprenorphine. If more people knew how to obtain this treatment I'm sure they would!"

"Continued: I finally got enough of enough and tried this "so called awesome Suboxone"! The best decision I ever chose! I had surgeries during the 5 yrs on it, which was tricky because I loved the buzz from the pain meds, but I trusted Suboxone to simply take it all away. I completely rebuilt my life in ways that can never be explained, but if you're suffering and hating life, KNOW that there is a better way. All you have to do is ask. I started Suboxone August of 2008, and have been off of it for almost 3 weeks and am doing rather good. I can honestly say I don't want a pill. The time on Suboxone has allowed me to reflect on the bad choices I made, and if there's 1 thing I know, it's I CANNOT LIVE LIKE THAT ANYMORE! God Bless!"

"I was reading some of the reviews on how well Suboxone works on Opiate withdrawal. The one person had only been on it for three days, 8mg a day. I as well went that route over 6 years ago. While Suboxone is a life saver while trying to kick narcotics. The Suboxone also comes with a price! If you are only on it for a short time, meaning a month or so. You should do well. What always brought me back to the narcotics, after the Sub's was the depression. I would become so depressed, I had considered suicide. If it comes down to staying on Suboxone or pills, even Heroin. Stay on the Suboxone! They even have a better drug out there now. Its called Butrans, it comes in patch form only, it comes in 5mg, 10mg and 25mg patches."

"After a few years of abusing heroin, my doctor introduced me to this medication. I only had to use it for a week to get over the worst of the withdrawals. Using Suboxone was the sure fire way for me to get my life back."

"Take my 2, 8mg Suboxone when I awake keeps me from any signs of withdrawal and also keeps my mind off of the wanting to use best thing I could have ever came across probably would have been dead. Feel like a million bucks no more chasing, stealing or feeling like garbage thanks to the one for this miracle."

"This medication saved my life! After 6 yrs of major oxy addiction, I went into detox scared to death! I was sedated for three days, then transferred to Subs! Man what a difference, I felt like a new man. Started a 12mg a day and gradually tapered off over a 4 month period! I had a Dr in Seattle, that put me on Clonidine after, a high blood pressure med! This takes away almost all withdrawl symptoms! 5 months off everything, and I have my life back!! If it wasnt for the Dr. and these meds, I'd be in a box by now! God Bless!"

"After abusing opiates/heroin for 8yrs I got on Suboxone. Since April of 2013 I've tapered from 16mg/day to 1mg a day. I've not relapsed. I've gotten my kids back from state custody. I've gotten a promotion at my job. Mostly, I've got my life back."
