Reviews for Suboxone to treat Opiate Dependence

Sort by:

"I took Suboxone before actually going to a rehab facility. I was very fortunate I didn't kill myself by the way I chose to take it. I used it as a crutch... I took it only when I couldn't get my hands on the real deal. I know many people who do the same. I currently have a friend who is trying to "detox from Suboxone". My best suggestion to anyone considering Suboxone is to have the courage and detox the real way at your local detox facility. You can be drug free in less than 14 days! "

"I've had Fibromyalgia for a long time and have tried all kinds of medicines from Percocet, Vicodin, Darvocet, Dilaudid, Muscle relaxers, Tramadol, Lyrica, Cymbalta, etc... I was on the Tramadol for about 6 years and was taking close to 300 pills a month (about 12 pills give or take a day) nothing was helping my pain enough and the hard medicines like Percocets, etc would work 50% for about 1 to 2 hours and my pain would be back! I finally got sick of it and told my doctor and he suggested "Suboxone". It has been my miracle! It helped my pain level 70 to 80%! It also helped me to get through the withdrawals of not taking the narcotics! The only bad thing is going through withdrawals when you stop or run out of the Suboxone! But while on it it's great!"

"I started experimenting with drugs after high school. I dove in quick, started following the GOOD ol' GRATEFUL DEAD, I had found my family, Hot shows 5 nights a week And Parties in Every Major City In the continental U.S. When You Acquire Friends All Over The Country Who can land Kind bud, china White, uncut cocaine, Any Phamies you could think of. Basically, whatever you can afford. This was 15 years ago, I went to rehab three times, kicked the smack and started with the opiate pills, roxy's oxy's percs, hydro, morphine. Whatever whenever, 6 months ago I had enough of lying to and hurting my family and myself. I started Suboxone, I HAVE BEEN CLEAN for 6 months."

"I started on 16mg and tapered to 2mg in a 3 month period. Each tapper from 8mg to 2mg I experienced mild withdraw symptoms. These lasted about 2 to 3 days and were mostly related to my stomach. After completely stopping from the 2mg dose I started experiencing withdrawal about 24 hours later. The peak was at 3 days and after 5 days it was over. It's nothing don't worry. The most important thing to do is to have a positive frame of mind. Don't forget where you came from. Remember it will be over before you know it. Don't just lay in bed all day. Get up and get out of the house and do some things you have been doing while on it! Don't get wrapped up in your mind about it focus on other things! "

"I've been a Roxy user for 3 years. 30 pills a day for the last 8 months. I tried to stop many times and couldn't handle the withdrawals but then I found Suboxone. The doctor told me to put 1/4 of the pill under my tongue. "

"TO ANYONE SEEKING HELP GETTING CLEAN AND GETTING OFF OF HEROINE, PAIN KILLERS, AND RELATED OPIATES READ THIS! I'm only 19 and I started using pain killers as a recreation activity when I was about 14/15. I started on Vicodin and Percocet, buying them off the street, and using them to enhance the high. This was the period of my life when I wasn't addicted to opiates.. I'm 19 now and became a heavy user of heroin. I began using heroin at age 18 and since then was snorting a bundle or two a day. I was sick & tired of my life and no longer had a mental addiction but a physical dependency. SUBOXONE WORKS & will help you clean up and stay clean. It only takes 3-5 pills to help you through the duration of your withdrawal period. GET SOME"

"To make a long story short.... I have missed out on 6 years of quality time that I could have spent with my kids making memories. Instead I was lying in bed making phone calls trying to find pain pills just so I could get out of bed. I knew I had a problem, and I tried to stop. I just couldn't do it. I felt hopeless! But what was worse than feeling hopeless was knowing that I wasn't being the father that my kids deserved to have. Then one day sitting in the Doctors office I saw a brochure for SUBOXONE. That was the day my kids got their Daddy back! TRUST ME! IT WORKS! So please don't make the same mistake I did. DON'T WAIT! YOUR KIDS NEED YOU NOW!"

"I have been on Tramadol for about 4 to 6 years. I occasionally go through the Vicodins, Darvacets, Percocets, and etc. type drugs. I didn't like being addicted to anything, so it is good hearing the positives over the negatives. I didn't like the look I would get from family and friends who saw me taking my medicine and wondering was I abusing it or not. I am doing this for me, my family and friends. I am just scared that I would relapse and that at some point Suboxone won't work. But it has only been 3 days and the drowsiness is horrible and interferes with my daily activities. So I have to take it with clonazepam, a medicine they say not to take it with, but my doctor advised it."

"Wow! I can't even begin to uplift this medication enough. If opiates are your addiction of choice please see a Doctor to see if this drug is right for you. I have been off opiates now for 1 1/2 years and have had not one relapse."

"I was a heavy user of Oxycontin for approximately 5 years with a dose of up to 5 x 80mg. Tabs chewed up throughout the day. Preferably early in the morning on an empty stomach. I finally had enough of that mess and have been on Suboxone for about 9 months now and this really saved me. Cant say enough good things about it, other than the taste. I am now just taking one suboxone a day and have no cravings. Highly recommend it to anyone."

"This medication is a life saver. This is definitely an alternative to Methadone or any other medication of this category. This also is a better medication if a patient is dependent on Opiate medicine. I highly recommend this medication to be taken as prescribed by a Doctor. Suboxone has a nasty orange taste to it so using some type of drinking liquid to cover up it's taste is recommended. Do not consume alcohol with this medication."

"I have found Suboxone to be my savior. Got me off the opiates both prescribed and street drugs in the opiate family."

"I started Suboxone 2 months ago. Prior to this I had been abusing painkillers for over ten years, and have been to jail about 5 times over fake prescriptions. Suboxone is a miracle. I don't think about getting high anymore, period. I take two 8mg's a day and I'm happy at that dose. The only side effects I have are a little constipation and increased sweating. This is how I feel about taking a drug like Suboxone to treat addiction: I believe that opioid dependence is a medical disease, and that therefore it will respond to the right medication. I think an opioid-dependent person using Suboxone is no different than a diabetic person using insulin. I can't imagine why I wouldn't just take Suboxone the rest of my life."

"I was on Oxycontin, Methadone, cocaine. NOT ALL AT ONCE. It started with Percocets, Vicodin. Then I started trying Oxycontin, then when I was coming down from Oxys I would binge on coke for days to relieve the depression and sluggishness from not having oxy. Then a friend gave me a Suboxone. And I got a script and help for my addicttion. I've been on the SuboxOne program for a little over a year. I have lapsed a few times but never like before. I'm almost done with this and I can see a light at the end of this long tunnel finally! Suboxone takes away the physical withdrawal symptoms,,and blocks your opiate receptors. So if you do use opiates within 24hrs it wont let you get as high and withdrawal symptoms come on stronger and faster..So not advised to use both."

"Excellent medicine! Suboxone actually stops cravings, withdrawals, and makes you just feel better, kinda like an anti-depressant. I know I am not addicted to it and have been using it about 5 months. I don't want to ever have to give it up because of its anti-depressants effects. I have been on anti-depressants for many years with little to no success, this stuff works very well for me."

"Had Oxycontin addiction, went to methadone for 2yrs tapered from 150mg to 25mg then switched to Suboxone for 2 years. tapered from 32mg to 0.5mg. Initial taper was quick and I was at 2mg and below for the 2nd year. I was on 0.5mg (a quarter of a 2mg pill) for 2 months before I stopped. I stopped Sep1309 (7 weeks ago). Withdrawals are not as severe as oxycontins but long. The first week was hard and 2nd week was better and by week 3 I was much better. Here is the thing. I am still not sleeping well (5hrs/night) not solid, my motivation and energy are low, skin still crawls and Jimmy legs are the worst! (7 weeks).. After research, it looks like I will be dealing with this for 6 months-year. "

"I am a 27 year old female. I was on oxy's, herion, pretty much everything. I was a garbage disposer. Then I went on Methadone. I was on Methadone for 7 years and had many relapses. When I got off methadone in January the withdrawals were horrible. I got on Suboxone, within 8 minutes I felt Normal! I am weaning off of them now. I am going slow until the point of 2mg every other day. I don't think the withdrawal will be bad. This is a GREAT drug. It can change your life."

"I started with Vicodin around 2000. From there I went to Norco, morphine, oxy, dilaudid, you get the picture. For 10 yrs I got by, I don't know how but I did. I was the type of person that would have 30 morphines and instead of taking maybe 5 or 10 a day I would take all 30 almost at one time. Not even thinking about the next day. Well I started Suboxone 10-21-2008. I stopped taking it on the 5th of this month I probably took a 1/4 once a day for a little over 3 weeks.I felt just a little crummy for 2 or 3 days but nothing compared to morphine or oxy withdrawal that's for sure. I haven't thought about the Suboxone at all. I feel so much better no more Suboxone even though it saved me."

"I started abusing Vicodin pills two years ago after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I liked the high so much that before I knew it my entire prescription was gone and I wanted more. So I continued getting my prescription filled once a month while obtaining oxys, hp, vics, norco, percs, morphine, methadone and dilaudid any way I could, wasting all my money and almost hooking my boyfriend on them in the process. I kicked it by weening off methadone once, relapsed, them went through the most horrible back and leg breaking withdrawals going cold turkey, only to relapse 3 months later. At this point, a former herion addict friend told me to get on Suboxone and I've been pain pill free ever since. It's been 2 years! I graduate college in 3 months!"

"I was addicted to hydrocodone for 5 years. Decided to give Suboxone a try. The Doctor and I spent the first day figuring out the right daily dose. From the moment I started taking it I was dizzy, drowsy and had extreme impaired thinking. That night I vomited EVERYTHING I ate. The Dr said it was "Normal"..Day two: more of the same. So dizzy I could hardly drive and multitasking, well,that was OUT of the question. That night, a repeat of the first night. DITTO day 3 & 4. On the 5th day I stopped taking it and ALL the symptoms were gone. Figured will-power was much better than the side effects. Haven't had any Hydrocodone since. Take it with care!"
