Hello... Firstly, thanks to anyone who can help me with a question.
I am using Suboxon after having sought help to get away from Percocets a while back. I haven't been to the doctor in over a year just because of the cash expense to see him each visit. To get to the point.... I had something like 50 Suboxons after my last doctor visit and started cutting them in half at first. Then, I was actually able to cut them into quarters and took one each morning. It has been months since I took a full quarter of a pill. I got to the point where I had crushed them and have been taking 2 little tiny pieces each morning. The pieces are about the size of a piece of rice or smaller. I figured at such a small amount, it should be easy to just stop taking any at all, eventually. I tried and I'm finding myself having leg, arm twitches each morning at about 6AM. I have (thank God) been sleeping through the night with the help of Melatonin. I'm also experiencing an upset stomach. As withdrawals go, it's not "real" severe. Can anyone tell me how long I can expect to have these uncomfortable symptoms?
I am feeling very guilty and embarrassed as I am somewhat up there in age (60) and my beautiful wife, of over 40 years, knows nothing about this. Neither does any of my family. I just have to stop. What can I expect... What am I in for?
There are so many place for people to go get help for different problems. It's so disappointing to see all these "help" places that want thousands of dollars to help young (and old) folks with dependency problems. I am hoping I can do this so I can, in turn, help someone else and maybe give them some advice. Thank you so much for any answers or suggestions.
