Hi there done i won the difference between the methadone and suboxone is suboxone is easier to get off of on the the other hand methadone is alot more effective in relief it works alot faster than suboxone and thats probably why you like it better suboxone you have to suffer for at least 2-3 of withdrawls when methadone is instant relief there is no waiting. With those 10 pills you can stretch them for 10 or 5 days depends on you but really you are avoiding the withdrawls that you will still have to deal with. My suggestion is that if you decide to use the methadone regardless instead of trying cold turkey is only use it when you are feeling the withdrawls cause we have time frames where it gets worse and those should be the times when you take it. What is your plan after these are gone? if you have no other choice but to withdrawl after you are out of methadone look into the thomas recipe it has helped many people when they are in withdrawls only thing is you have to be able to get your hands on some valium, or xanax a heavy sedative that will help you sleep cause you will have insomnia from hell. Good luck and i hope this works out for you i understand the need to work but you cant work unless your brain is functioning and clear and you feel well we are just no use when we cant think straight am i right.
You will need some support to help do this and we can provide some, but you will also need some in your day to day life, that is why they try to insist that suboxone patients get mandatory counseling, which i see here on this site, is not so mandatory. No one wakes up one day and just starts taking more RX pain meds than they need, they do it because they have the gene for addiction in their family and they were in pain mentally and physically. Opiates build us up and make us feel normal, the counseling helps make you feel normal without them, so, see if you can find a counselor that specializes in addiction, my two I have used go with the Eugene Adler method, which helps people with their emotional needs and helps them works better with their families, loved ones and co workers. There is no one answer to what you have asked, they are many and each will provide some insight. No one charges here to offers advice, we are all each other support and the ideas and questions we all submit help us grow and change. Me, I am tapering off suboxone myself and walking really has helped, it lessened the restless leg I was having as I tapered, lifted my mood a bit, gave me a goal and is supposedly helping to reboot the damaged neurotransmitter/receptor sites in the brain that will allow the normal pain/release of natural opiates process when I finally stop the subs. One of the members of the Methadone support group here suggested it to me and it has helped me. You can also do some other exercise if you like, as long as you don't over do it at first and then stop, or as long as you are physically able to exercise without causing a health problem or aggravating one.
