I was diagnosed as Bipolar eight years ago and I've spent about half that time on doctor-prescribed medications, and the other half abusing alcohol or drugs. I recently got into an Oxycontin habit and now I've been prescribed Suboxone and I've been on it for 7 days and I'm stressing about getting addicted to it. I'm very concerned about the depression that seems to start grabbing me when i try to lower my dose. I'm not taking any other medication.
