I Am 40 Yrs, Old And Been Hooked On Percocet For About 6 Yrs, Take About 10 to 15 10/325 a Day. Tried Lots Of Ways To Quit Even Cold Turkey But Went Back On Them Again. Need Help To Get Off of Percocet and Get My Life Back
Go on the Suboxone website and you just type in your area and it will give you a list of drs in your area that can prescribe it to you. They have to be licensed to prescribe it so not all drs can do it. Congrats on accepting your condition and trying to do something about it. Suboxone has worked great for me.
But also write down all the doctors listed in your area as there are fees, office visit charges, frequency of visits and other requirements and all this varies, if you call all of them, you can find one for your budget. they often do not take insurance, but if you have insurance, it probably will pay for the medication.
Booter is right. Please add Ocean and Patti as friends. They are well educated and personally experienced with the do's and don'ts of Suboxone. The only thing I know for sure is you need to have some of the perc's out of your system before your induction to Subs. I did read somewhere that many sub docs will start you with subutex for the first few days before switching to Suboxone. This way, you shouldn't have wd's if the level of opiates in your system isn't low enough. Like I said, this is only what I heard. Please be safe and congratulations on your decision to get help! I will keep you in my prayers and wish the very best outcome!
Be strong, visit often for the support you may need. I'm not sure if Patti mentioned counseling, many sub docs will mandate this as part of the treatment.
