I was on methadone for 2 years & did well on it. My parents & my boyfriend begged me to go on suboxone so I did & it worked alright at first but now 2 years later I hate it, it's not working anymore, & it's way too expensive. When I first went on suboxone a few other family members were getting it too & they would give me as much as I wanted, so I took them constantly. I probably took 4 to 7 a day no joke! Now insurance won't pay for it anymore and they got kicked off so I've been taking my regular dose for about 2 months which is 16mg a day & it's not cutting it. I'm going back on methadone, I'm so over this suboxone. The only reason it worked in the beggining is because I took them & took them until I made it work & I can't do that anymore. I want the suboxone to be out of my system before I go on methadone so my question is can I take vicodin to help with withdrawal until I go to the clinic? If you're going to give me a lecture about how bad methadone is or how I should get off of everything or whatever then please don't comment. I've heard it all before & could really care less to hear it again because nobody is changing my mind so don't waste your time. I'm not trying to be mean I just don't want to hear it. So for those who give me helpful advice or any advice at all I appreciate it very much. Thank you!!!
of course you can take vicodin but you may have to go to something a little stronger a hydrocodone is pretty weak especially when you've been on both methadone and buprenorphine. I would try dilaudid of fentanyl first. Also none of the opiates are going to work for about 5-7 after your last dose of suboxone so you're better off to just switch to methadone and forget about the other opiates especially vicodin... Good luck...
Im actually in the process of doing this now! same exact process... i just randomly picked up and moved out of state. i was on 50mgs of methadone for about 6 months and now im popping vicodin to ease my withdrawls. after i run out of those i have about 10 of the 8mg suboxone strips. I have had suboxone before, but not since ive been on methadone... i took it in pill form and it was during my drug abuse days... just to get high. I HOPE IT WORKS!! i hope to have some form of medical coverage here by then so i can be "monitored" by a clinician or even just a private physician... im so over these withdrawal symptoms... getting mixed up in this bullcrap is the worst decision of my life... PRAYERS APPRECIATED!
