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.

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!
