I'm addicted to subutex and have been on it for over 2 years now and I feel like it's taken away my passion for life. I no longer feel enthusiastic about anything and I miss feeling (music, fun etc.). I'm wondering if someone has experienced both vicodin and subutex/suboxone addiction and if so did it make you feel the same way? I have tried vicodin in the past for migraine headaches but was never addicted to it. It made me feel good and subutex doesn't really make me feel good (maybe for a little while but nothing like vicodin did). I realize that subutex has a ceiling effect where vicodin does not so you have to be very careful about not taking too much of it and when you do start craving it, you tend to need more because it doesn't work as well (at least that's what I've heard) and that's why so many people seem to be on such unbelievable doses like 20 or more pills per day. I'm asking this question because I'm going to try to ween myself off the subutex with vicodin. I know a lot of you will think this is very stupid but I can't do it without something and I've tried everything. I'm hoping someone will read this and be able to answer some of my questions. Thank you so very much. Larsy :)
Yes i have i would switch back and forth. I would eat 5 10mg vicodins a day for 5 or six days then get so depressed i had relapsed i would start the subutex again. Finally i found a new doc been clean off the oppiates for 5 months got on paxil and have no cravings. I don't advise you
to do this. Talk to your doctor about an anti-depressant youl get through it don't do it my friends and family could totally tell when i was high. If you don't mind me asking why are you on suboxone heroin? Thats what brought me there in the end!!!
