... bedtime for sleep. I took it off and on for 15 years. 5 years ago I was diagnosed with scoliosis, for which I underwent 3 big surgeries and subsequently got hooked on Oxycodone 15 mg #300/28 days, and Lorazepam 2 mg 4-6 times a day for anxiety. too. I went cold turkey in Dec.2010 and thought I was dying. Dr. put me on Suboxone at too high a dose, and abandoned me. I have tampered with the dose to be comfortable, and I want to come off it before I get another addiction. When I stop Suboxone, I get to day 3 and feel awful, but here is the question... am I feeling awful from coming off the Suboxone, OR am I feeling awful from coming off the lorazepam? I have read that it can take months to withdraw from benzos. If that is the case, then I need the Suboxone to function. If it is caused by Suboxone withdrawal, then I need to go underground for a week and then stop it. WHY is everyone pressuring me to stay on this stuff? It is making me paranoid and I hate it. My doctor tried to pressure me into staying on the narcotics and the benzos, and now others are pressuring me to stay on Suboxone. Can someone please help? Thank you
