Reviews for Suboxone to treat Opiate Dependence

"I was on Heroin for 9 years and Suboxone for the last 2 years. I tapered and tapered until this last weekend, I detoxed off completely. It wasn't that bad; I slept through it with some anxiety medicines. I don't feel fabulous but I feel okay. Suboxone is a lifesaving medication. Take your time everyone, let your body get used to lower and lower amounts, and the detox will be so manageable."

"Normally I would get my script for 90 40mg Oxycontin and 60 Ir 30s they would all be gone in less then 2 weeks then the withdrawals would set in and I'll be looking for pills everywhere even stealing to get anything to stop the pains from withdrawals, until I found Suboxone. I can go from taking tons of oxycodone to 2 x 8mg Suboxone a day at first then 4mg a day and no withdrawals. It's my MR. NORMAL PILL as my wife says. This pill works and I have helped out several of my addict friends get off there pain killers by sending them to my doctor. This is definitely a miracle pill. I can work and play with my kids like a normal dad. Again try it, guaranteed this pill works!"

"Almost everything I find about this medication is tied to addiction. However, my case is quite different. I am a severe chronic pain patient. I have tried fentanyl, lortab, morphine, tramadol, and a few others to try to get my pain to be managed. Nothing worked until I gave up on opiates helping me, and detoxed off them. While detoxing, I realized that yucky orange pill that supposed to be helping my withdrawals (which I never had) was working awesome on my pain. I went through the detox thinking the opiates were causing the pain. About 24 hours after leaving the hospital, and my last Suboxone dose, the pain came back hard. I then started back on the Suboxone, and I have my life back. For me this little pill is a miracle!"

"I had a bad heroin problem for 3 years, and I finally went to a methadone clinic. I'm not sure if it was the clinic or the drug, but I was now addicted to methadone. I wanted it every day, I took big doses and I stayed high the whole time, then I was addicted to methadone for a year! It is painful to detox off of methadone, worse then my heroin withdrawals. I went to in patient rehab and they gave me Suboxone, oh my goodness. Immediately my withdrawals subsided, they were gone, and I had no urge to do any drugs, I was on that for 30 days, and I got out, and now I am sober and never touched anything since. It's a miracle drug to me, and it worked for me. I'm so thankful. "

"I had been addicted to opiates for almost 3 years until I went into a detox center where they put me on Suboxone for 7 days. Of course when I was on it I felt great; but it has been over a week since I've stopped and I still feel terrible. There were actually 3 people in the facility that were trying to get off Suboxone, because they had been on it for so long. I know you people all feel its a miracle drug, but eventually you will have to stop taking it and hopefully weening off of it goes smoother for you. I've heard you don't want to take it for that long because its hard to come off. I do wish everyone the best of luck."

"Addicted to heroin for 5 years, unable to get fully clean because of the agonizing withdrawals. Then my friend told me about Suboxone, referred me to her doctor, detoxed comfortably and I've been clean ever since. This is the miracle drug for many people who think there is no hope. "

"I had been addicted to pain medication Oxycodones, Percocets, Vicodins, you name the pill, I've done it. I was severely addicted for about 2 years. I stole my mother's pain medicines that she needs, forged scripts, sold jewelry, lied, and went without food just to afford my pills and when I didn't have any pills? I got sicker than anyone who has been through it can imagine. I went into a detox after Mothers Day and was started on Suboxone. I take 16mg a day. I guess my dose is higher than most people due to the amount of pills I used to take (anywhere from 20-25 30mg Oxycodoness a day). On Suboxone I'm a better mother and person. I'm finally free of my addiction and now I'm just dependent on a medication that saved my life. Not a bad trade for a real life."

"Suboxone got me off of the Norco, 10mg 6-8 a day. Now I take a half of a Suboxone in the morning and half around lunch. I've had zero side effects. This medicine is a miracle for me, I'm back to my old self and able to do things I thought I'd never be able to do again. I now coach my daughters fast pitch softball, Archery, and the outdoors, pain free. I know that this medication was not designed to provide "pain relief" but that is the best part about it."

"I can't say enough about this medicine. I became addicted to Vicodin and Percocet over the past year. I thought there was no hope for me. A friend of mine who was addicted to Oxycontin was put on Suboxone and told me about it. I found a doctor in my area who prescribed it and this has changed my life. I take a half of a 8mg pill 3 times a day and I no longer crave pain pills. It is amazing. I have energy and feel great. Only had bad side effect of nausea and headaches for the first 2 days. I highly recommend this to anyone with an opiate dependence. It will change your life!"

"I was opiate dependent for almost 6 years. Six years of my life that I hardly remember because I was in a cloud of Oxycontin and other heroin like prescription drugs. About 6 months ago I was introduced to the Suboxone program and ever since that day I've had my life back. I used to steal, lie and do whatever it took to get a fix. I lost my family, friendships, jobs, cars, everything. Now over the last six months I've turned into a different person, the person I was before taking drugs. I would recommend Suboxone for anyone who is dependent on pain killers. I would also however, recommend seeking counseling along with it to prevent any relapsing."

"I'm ready to be clean and be myself again. I was hooked on oxys 80mg for three years. This drug almost broke my marriage and led me to do things I thought I would never do from lying, stealing and unemployment from the first time I started using. When I started Suboxone my whole life has changed. I'm now a better wife, daughter and aunt again."

"Amazing drug! My husband has an addictive personality and has spent the better part of 40 years abusing drugs. We heard about this treatment and both of us were skeptical that a simple pill could end the days of chasing street drugs and spending several hundred dollars each month for them. It has been just that - he has been on this now for 4 months and what a difference it has made in both of our lives. He has mental clarity, more energy - it's been a win-win for us."

"I've been on Suboxone for 5 days now and I have been taking 40 to 50 pills a day of 15 to 30 mg of oxycodone that's 800 mg a day addiction. Suboxone has helped so much. Very few side effects for me, some chills and a little diarrhea. I use Benadryl to be able to sleep, but that's it. Tomorrow will be day 6 without anything, will keep you posted. Past 2 days I took only 1/2 a pill so maybe that's why I felt a little withdrawal symptoms but that's better than increasing Suboxone dose. Good luck to everyone and use it only to detox."

"I have been on Suboxone for just over 2 months and it has changed my life. I no longer depend on the pain pills or go through the withdrawals when I couldn't get them. I would tell anyone who wants help to get on Suboxone because it really helps. The only problem is the taste."

"I had a monkey on my back and the circus was in town, until I found Suboxone. It has really helped me and I am getting better every day. It is a long road but Suboxone makes it a little easier to walk. Thank you so much for giving me my life back."

"My husband has been using drugs for so many years that I have lost track. First it was pills, any kind that he could get. Then it was heroin, crack, and cocaine till I gave up on him (it was a nightmare). Then he went back to pills. It seemed like it was never going to end. He began to not want to go anywhere but work. He would lay around the house all day, in a deep depression. He tried to quit almost every other day when he was down and out. I hated it. I then talked him into researching SUBOXONE, we did it together. The following week he went to a very nice doctor who understood about his problem. It has only been a week that he has been on Suboxone but WHAT A DIFFERENCE. He is like a new man. He takes 2 daily and is more normal."

"I started Suboxone 15 days ago to combat a 4 year opiate addiction. I've read a lot of reviews of Suboxone and many of them weren't good. Sorry about you all because this drug is great. I had the normal ope addiction, and here, on day 15, I'm down to one 2mg dose in the morning. I didn't remember to take that until noon. It works, it works so well. No withdrawals, have energy, no desire to take anything else. Bottom line, I plan to stop the Suboxone. They work and I feel normal again. I don't care if there is an opiate whatever in there, they work, are prescribed and I am me again. I'm so happy and relieved."
