Hi robert, i'm in dallas too, help please
i too, am melting in Dallas. My name is Debi and like other people am on my way to hopefully becoming hydrocodone free soon. I first started taking this ten (10) years ago following a car accident that left my neck pretty much broken. Like so many other victims of these crackpot doctors, I was forced to stay on a dose on 10mg. of Norco four times a day after 10 years. Knowing that my need would increase (as it did) I was forced to substitute my prescription with purchasing them from people "off the street".
Eventually I got up to approx 3 Norcos 4 X daily.
This has now become unattainable due to the ridiculous amount of money I was (am) being forced to spend on this habit.
Like so many other patient-victims of Ignorant, self-richeous, idiotic doctors today, mine put me on 16 mg. a day. He told me to put TWO films under my tongue morning and late evening. Well, suffice it to say he was WRONG. The first day I did this, which was last week, I honestly thought I was on some sort of ACID trip. My poor hubby was freaking out and almost took me to the ER.
Who are the insane idiots that are prescribing this at this HIGH DOSE????? They need to be SHOT.
However, after doing some research, I now am taking the films and cutting them into four (4) equal pieces and since starting this, I, amazingly feel fine.
Here's my question.....
Is cutting the films okay to do? I hear two different answers all over the www.
Is this what is causing the HORRIBLE tastes being released into my mouth?
I could babble on and on, but basically here's my question......Can you point me in the direction of the proper way to cut the films, if, in fact, they can be "cut"?
And, yes, we are MELTING in Dallas. (we're cutting trees too).
yes you can cut the subs. i heard a tiny pair of really good scissors and some tweezers are fine... you did well to get off that ridiculous high dose. i was on the sub pills, so i dont know about the taste. and omg, i came of a pretty large methadone habit, and was inducted by my doctor at 12mg and that was bloody high. i can only imagine i would be bouncing off the walls, or nodding off at 32mg. yup ignorant doctors have a lot to answer for. oh and im pretty sure robert is in houston.
Post exactly how much sub you are currently taking. Go read http://www.drugs.com/forum/featured-...apy-50887.html This is Robert's protocol for sub taper. As cheeky says, yes you can cut the subs. Why the weird taste? Who knows. Just as long as you can taper these things as quickly as possible. Read the thread. It will help you to become educated with Robert's taper plan.
Cutting the films is perfectly fine as is cutting the pills. Just make sure your cutting equal doses so your not jumping up and down. Also, please be careful EVERYONE! The sub strips are so tiny. They can easily fall on the floor and end up in the mouth of a pet or a child. Sub is a very, very strong drug as we all know. One of my friends daughters ended up in the ER after ingesting a piece of Sub accidently.
The disgusting taste is normal. It's awful, I know. Not much you can do about it. The strips are a little more bearable cause they dissolve faster and are not so chalky. Still gross though. Make sure you drink lots of water, and try to drink a full glass about 1/2 hour before dosing so the Sub dissolves as fast as possible.
I'm sure Robert will be along to help you get your dose down. Doctor's are moronic with Sub. Robert spends his days cleaning up mess after mess after mess they make of people!
yep!! and there is a very special place in heaven for this man!!
