For Opiate Dependence: It's been about two years since I first started messing around with OCs. It didn't get really bad until about a year ago when I found a massive supply for extremely cheap. That's when the trouble started. I was snorting 2 - 3 80 mgs a day if not more on "special occasions." Anyway I realized that this horrible secret was bound to destroy my life, if not tomorrow than sometime soon. You see, nobody in my family knows that I have this problem, even my longtime girlfriend who spends a massive amount of time with me. So fortunately I have realized how important it is to finally kick the OC habit. I got some suboxone and so far so good. I recommend this to anyone with a serious opiate habit.

For Opiate Dependence: Suboxone saved my life. I was a heavy heroin user for about two years, about $200 dollars a day. I was about to lose everything, and decided it was time to stop this downward spiral. I had tried suboxone before but wasn't ready to commit. I found a doctor who prescribed it for me and was given about 10-12mg a day. My estimated stop date would have been early November of 2007, I tapered down and made a commitment to myself to stop as early as I could, I took my last pills of Suboxone July 4 2007, and have been clean ever since! It truly saved my life. And a little FYI the mild withdrawals Suboxone gave me were absolutely NOTHING compared to trying to come off heroin or oxycontin.

For Opiate Dependence: 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!

For Opiate Dependence: 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!

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

Review by EddieSaari:

For Opiate Dependence: 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!

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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

For Opiate Dependence: 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!

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

Review by Anonymous:

I am now 51 yrs old I've been taking narcotics since the age of 13. That's right 38 yrs. I went on a methadone program for a few years, got tired of it and one day just said I'm done. So I went cold turkey. The first day was okay, got some sleep. The second day was a little scary, I didn't sleep at all, or the third day, or the fourth day, or the fifth day, or the sixth day, or the seventh day, or the eighth day, or the ninth day. Then finally after being awake for 240 hours straight, without A WINK of sleep. I guess I passed out because I woke up in a hospital psych ward. I was hallucinating something fierce (the 7-9 day). I thought I was in the hospital for 3-4 days. Turns out I was there for three weeks. I know.

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

Review by Dtay:

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

For Opiate Dependence: 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.

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.
