For Opiate Dependence "Hi all!! I have been clean now for 72 hours from a 400-500mg a day 3 year oxycodone habit. I started suboxone 24 hours ago. I held out as long as I could with withdrawal so I didnt risk the chance of precipitated withdrawal. I initially broke an 8 mg tablet into 4 pieces to equal 2mg. Within a half hour I could NOT believe how much better I felt. I still had some body aches which were easily relieved with ibuprofen and I still have diarrhea but its occasional Other than that I feel amazing and I feel free. I am so blessed to be able to have my life back. I have a goal of a 6 month taper. I am also a nurse and I can tell you that I held an oxycodone in my hand at work and do not have a SINGLE urge. It was so empowering. Good luck to you!"

For Opiate Dependence "I started taking this medication out of desperation. I was taking 50 pills a day: a mix of norco, methadone and tramadol. After multiple emergency room trips and close calls..I knew I had to do something quick or I wouldn't live to see my 6 year old son grow up. I was referred to Suboxone doctor. After a few different doctors (most were not educated enough on addiction) I found a decent one. I started on 12mg a day and I have now made it off Suboxone in almost exactly 1 years time. I did experience withdrawels while I tapered down but it was bearable. I was able to save my business, become a better father and most of all re-learn who I am and discover my purpose. I recommend this to anyone suffering from Opiate addiction."

For Opiate Dependence "Suboxone changed my life! Is it that magic pill that everyone is looking for that solves all of our problems? No. If you don't change things about yourself, and or change your behavior, you'll just be a drug addict with character defects on Suboxone. If you are an addict, like me, then you know what its like to be a slave to a drug. Its an insane, non-stop, & endless quest to get our drug of choice every day. Suboxone makes it possible to not live that way. Wish they had generics though."

For Opiate Dependence "I owe my life to sub's I was on 360,30 milligram oxycodones a month from my pain doctor for 6 out of the last 8 years.I'm clean now 28 days on suboxone now I'm starting to feel more alive and getting my life back is awesome. Its neat to actually have real emotions back that I haven't felt in years. Its like I've been in a dream for _8 years I only hope the sub's aren't as extreme to get off when I'm ready .god bless."

For Opiate Dependence "I was addicted to opiates and have been on Suboxone for approx. 5 years. I started on 12 mg and have weened down to 4mg a day. My only issue with this is the length of time I have been taking it. The majority of Docs that prescribe Sub. do not want you to ween off and ultimately quit. It works however I feel as though a person should not be on it for more than 3 years and most Docs would rather keep you as a patient and on Suboxone for monetary reasons. My only advice to anyone looking to start on Sub. would be to find a good Doc. and make sure there is a somewhat short term plan to ween off and quit."

For Opiate Dependence "I was addicted to any type of pill I could possibly find, from oxycodone to roxy and everything in between. My addiction ruined everything that I held precious to me and it lasted from the time I was 16 till I was 20. I withdrew cold turkey for a week and then finally got put on Suboxone. I was taking 3 8mg strip a day for 2 years. I have finally been off of it for almost a year now. The hardest part was coming off the Suboxone it took me about 6 to 8 months to completely come off of it. And slowly but surely I am now going to be 3 years sober. Suboxone saved my life and gave me everything back that I have ever wanted and more. I would recommend this medicine to anyone who is having problems with addiction. It was truly a God send."

For Opiate Dependence "After a short addiction to roxicodone I was steered into a methadone clinic and I tried to quit for a little over 2 years and I just couldn't do it cold turkey! I've been on Subutex and Suboxone. They both are amazing! Saved my life! I just wish more people were educated on this medication. I have never gotten "high" from buprenorphine. If more people knew how to obtain this treatment I'm sure they would!"

For Opiate Dependence "Continued: I finally got enough of enough and tried this "so called awesome Suboxone"! The best decision I ever chose! I had surgeries during the 5 yrs on it, which was tricky because I loved the buzz from the pain meds, but I trusted Suboxone to simply take it all away. I completely rebuilt my life in ways that can never be explained, but if you're suffering and hating life, KNOW that there is a better way. All you have to do is ask. I started Suboxone August of 2008, and have been off of it for almost 3 weeks and am doing rather good. I can honestly say I don't want a pill. The time on Suboxone has allowed me to reflect on the bad choices I made, and if there's 1 thing I know, it's I CANNOT LIVE LIKE THAT ANYMORE! God Bless!"

For Opiate Dependence "I was reading some of the reviews on how well Suboxone works on Opiate withdrawal. The one person had only been on it for three days, 8mg a day. I as well went that route over 6 years ago. While Suboxone is a life saver while trying to kick narcotics. The Suboxone also comes with a price! If you are only on it for a short time, meaning a month or so. You should do well. What always brought me back to the narcotics, after the Sub's was the depression. I would become so depressed, I had considered suicide. If it comes down to staying on Suboxone or pills, even Heroin. Stay on the Suboxone! They even have a better drug out there now. Its called Butrans, it comes in patch form only, it comes in 5mg, 10mg and 25mg patches."

For Opiate Dependence "After a few years of abusing heroin, my doctor introduced me to this medication. I only had to use it for a week to get over the worst of the withdrawals. Using Suboxone was the sure fire way for me to get my life back."

For Opiate Dependence "Take my 2, 8mg Suboxone when I awake keeps me from any signs of withdrawal and also keeps my mind off of the wanting to use best thing I could have ever came across probably would have been dead. Feel like a million bucks no more chasing, stealing or feeling like garbage thanks to the one for this miracle."

For Opiate Dependence "This medication saved my life! After 6 yrs of major oxy addiction, I went into detox scared to death! I was sedated for three days, then transferred to Subs! Man what a difference, I felt like a new man. Started a 12mg a day and gradually tapered off over a 4 month period! I had a Dr in Seattle, that put me on Clonidine after, a high blood pressure med! This takes away almost all withdrawl symptoms! 5 months off everything, and I have my life back!! If it wasnt for the Dr. and these meds, I'd be in a box by now! God Bless!"

For Opiate Dependence "After abusing opiates/heroin for 8yrs I got on Suboxone. Since April of 2013 I've tapered from 16mg/day to 1mg a day. I've not relapsed. I've gotten my kids back from state custody. I've gotten a promotion at my job. Mostly, I've got my life back."

For Opiate Dependence "I'm an addict and the first time I took it it did take away the withdrawal symptoms after about a few days into taking it (8mg 2 naloxone) tabs once a day it gave me severe headaches and sometimes made me feel sick. The pros to this medicine is it does keep the withdrawals at bay and is easier to withdraw from than methadone. Cons is the cost for me with no insurance is too high like 400.00 for a months supply! I know it works for some but not me! 5 out of 10."

For Opiate Dependence "Suboxone saved my life. I wanted to get clean so badly, but, even with rehab and NA (meetings 6x/week, sponsor, step-work, etc.) I still could NOT manage to live life without some sort of substance (eg. alcohol, marijuana, opiates, ANYTHING) to take me out of my misery and pain for a while. Suboxone 8mg for 5 years has me stable and in control of my life, emotions and actions. Thank GOD for buprenorphine."

For Opiate Dependence "If you have an opiate addiction, this medicine is the way to go! I tried rehabs, meetings, everything! Suboxone is the only thing that kept me clean. It takes away the desire to use, which is a miracle. I have no regrets by choosing the Suboxone program. It saved my life."

For Opiate Dependence "I've been a heroin addict for 13 years. I've tried methadone and Subutex and now I'm taking just Suboxone, and on "Suboxone maintenance". Through treatment and staying dedicated I am 5 months clean. I take 16 mg (2 strips) per day, every day. It has worked miracles. I don't get many cravings for heroin. I felt so hopeless and its the best choice I've made in my life in years."

For Opiate Dependence "I have been taking Suboxone 8mg/2mg films for approximately 3 years now and don't know what I would do without it! I'm prescribed 1/day.Some days I take 1/4 in the morning, 1/4 in the afternoon & 1/2 in the evening. Some days I only take a 1/2 at lunch time. Some days I take a whole one, everyday seems different depending on how I feel."

For Opiate Dependence "I was totally addicted to 10mg Vicodin and Oxycodone, Percocet for about 2 years. I started the weary rounds of running out early, then hitting Urgent Care in desperation for more pills - bottom line it did not work and I was terrified of withdrawal. Made a great choice: Suboxone - the best working medicine I have ever taken, a little strong at 8mg a day but worth it hands down 100%."

For Opiate Dependence "To anyone looking to get on Suboxone to overcome opiate addiction - DO IT!! I've been on Suboxone for 15 months now & have gone from 20mg to 2 mgs literally painlessly. The first time I took it I knew within an hr I had found what I needed to get that damn monkey off my back. A slow yet STEADY taper is important. There's no reason a person can't easily drop 2mgs a mo. down to about 4mg. If it's making you sleepy, time to taper! It gets a bit slower once you get lower but still not hard at all. Once you get to about 3mg you almost have an awakening! You get more energy, and start to LOVE music and conversation again. I would say that those are the biggest side effects - sleepiness (taper!), and slight emotional dullness."
