Ive been takins suboxone for about 4 months now to get through opiod dependency. When I first started taking this drug I got a bit of a high from it. Now when I take it I dont feel a thing. Is is supposed to be like this? Well, today I decided to take 3 8mg tablets all at once to see if I would be able to feel it then. I still didnt feel a thing. I dont understand why... I know that when I couldnt get high off the percocet before all I had to do was take more to be able to feel it. Why is the same thing not happening now?
Because you are not suppose to get high off it. It is for RECOVERY not more drug abuse. Look back at the answer you gave the person who said it was bullshit and see what you said. That is what it is suppose to do for you unless you were just making it up. Suboxone does not make you high - if you are looking for that you need to go back to percocet when your main reason for living was to get high. Suboxone blocks all of that and covers up the receptors in your brain so you can't feel an opiate even if you took one. By the way you better not take more - less is better - the withdrawal from the suboxone is not pleasant and everyone has to go off it someday so you know people aren't taking it to get high. Please - get over that chasing the dragon crap - if you want to be drug free now is the time to start or you will never be happy.
That first high will NEVER happen again off any drug and I can almost guarantee it.Trust me. Accept the fact that if you don't embrace sobriety and accept your addiction you will be saying these same words 50 years from now and wonder what the hell happened to your life. Good Luck.
hi heather,sub has what is known as a ceiling effect.once your body gets used to what is needed to stop cravings that's it. your broken for life.you can never go back to when you first started taking it.juz kiddin.i'll tell you how you can get that back,if you tell me why you need to feel that first couple of times high. deal ?
well first of all not to be crude it sounds like you dont want to get off of the opiates in the first place if your still chasing the high, but if your looking the high but dont want to be on the typical opiates then you need methadone but i dont understand why you even got on suboxone to quit opiates if your still trying to get high.ive been on the 8-2 mg suboxone tablets now for two months and i agree the first couple of days i caught a high but i no longer do. i started out by taking three a day and now i take a quarter of one a day and am doing just fine. the answer to your question though is, "when you first started taking the med your body was experiencing a foreign drug it had ever experienced and where it is a partial opiod agonist your body produced a high for a few days and no longer will. let me explain why taking another percocet will take you higher and why taking three suboxone will not. percocet is a full opiod agonist and suboxone is a partial opiod agaonist.
think of your body as a door, when taking the percocets they unlock the door and then open the door producing the euphoric effect but when taking the suboxone it only unlocks the door and doesnt open it which means it will take the withdrawal away but will not get you high which is an amazing thing. i mean why get help if your still wanting to get high. i was addicted to opana (oxymorphone) for two years which is twice as strong as oxycontin, its as strong as heroin. istarted taking the suboxone and i have been clean for sixty days and i now feel ashamed of my past opiate addiction. it was a demon that finally with the help of GOD and my familly i was able to get rid of. your asking the wrong the wrong question, if your still searching for the high then suboxone is not for you but you already have the medicine, why not go ahead and quit this stuff for good. why be an addict when you have redemption in a bottle. suboxone has been a miracle druf for me and i hope it will prove to be the same for you. i work in the emergency medical field and i have seen one too many overdoses. i learned that i wanted to be part of the staistic that won rather than lose to opiate addiction which could very easily result in the loss of your life. sorry for writing a book but i just dont want anyone to ever have to go through the withdrawals that i experienced or cause the pain that i have caused myself and my family. if i can beat it anyone can, you just have to want to bad enough. i hope that peoples eyes will open up like mine have, i hope you never have to walk in and see multiple young people lying on the ground dead because they took one too many pills but that is what it took for my eyes to open up. GOD bless you all and please dont become another lost statistic, kick this sickness.i promise it will be one of the best decisions of your life.
