For Opiate Dependence: 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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!

For Opiate Dependence: 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!

For Opiate Dependence: I was addicted to cocaine and then pain killers for almost 6 years. I spent that entire time hating myself, trying to kick, going through horrible withdrawals and then relapsing over and over again. I stole money from my father, I stole his drugs, I lied, all I cared about for 6 of those 8 years was finding more and more painkillers. Then one day I was at a doctors office trying to get more drugs and saw a handout that described Suboxone. I made an appointment to see that doctor. That was 3 years ago, since that day I haven't looked back! I take 2.5 8mg tablets a day and finally live a normal life. This IS a miracle drug, if you are addicted and think you life is ruined THINK again. Find a Dr. who can help you NOW. It will save your life

For Opiate Dependence: A few years ago I was hooked on Percocet, Vicodin, and Tramadol. (Side note: Doctors will tell you that Tramadol, "Ultram", is none addictive but that is what the original addiction I had). My doctor gave me an prescription for Suboxone. It was a God send. I would recommend it to anyone who is having a lot of trouble kicking the pill popping habit.

For Opiate Dependence: I have been on Suboxone now for 3 years. I have never relapsed, nor have I ever had any cravings. I was addicted to pain pills. Started out by getting a script after an accident. It immediately gave me energy and made me happy (at first) before I knew it I was completely addicted. If I did not have it I went into withdrawals and I had to take it to feel normal or even get out of bed. This went on for 7 years. Suboxone gave me my life back. I do not get a buzz, I feel normal. I would not have been able to do this without Suboxone and my wonderful Doctor.

For Opiate Dependence: It's taken me two years to complete, but well worth not being addicted to opiates. I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone who has the disease of addiction to pain killers. Your life is worth it, just stick to it! Next thing you know... No addiction. Stay positive and forget the past and move forward!

For Opiate Dependence: I was addicted to pain killers for some time and was spending a tremendous amount of money on them. My life became consumed by pain killers to the point where they were almost all I thought about. I tried Suboxone when I couldn't get anything else, to keep me from going into withdrawals. They were great. I had no desire to take anything else. I found a doctor and was put on 8mg. Suboxone 2x a day. I agree that they WILL help you get off opiates, BUT I feel it's substituting one drug for another. I feel normal, not high, when I'm on them.

It's great that there are people with the same feelings and attitude about Suboxone. I'm a 12 year opiate addict and I'll be cliche and say it has changed my life. Now 6 months into program and I must say it really works if you stick to program. I haven't had a drink or any opiates since starting 6 months ago. It's great that my mind isn't occupied with searching for anodyne (Greek for pain killer) and/or the next bottle. I can say life is good and mean it. I know people who are still drinking and taking pills with Suboxone and they are miserable. In closing Suboxone works for me and has given me a new outlook on life and more importantly my family is happy. People I know and my Doctor are giving me complements all the time and again life is good! SUBOXONE RULES!

For 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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!

For Opiate Dependence: 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!

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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.
