been on roxicodone but have lessened use over last month, also took methodone low dose 20-30 mg per day for about last 6 months
Do you take those for pain or recreational use? The reason I ask is that suboxone won't help pain. Also you need to be totally clean for at least 24 hours before you start it, some people say less but I had a bad start on it because I used about 6 hrs before
Only you and your dr can determine how long you will be on it. It is usually determined by your past drug use. They say your chance of relapse is higher in short term use, unless you can address the psychological and behavior issues that come with the physical dependence.
Yeah, I've been on roxi's for a few years and recently have had some success with suboxone. It's a miracle drug imo, but yes, psychological factors and other pressures/triggers need to be figured out and fought. I have been having problems with the merry go round. After a week or so of subs I don't feel like I need them (or feel like I need the warm embrace of the small blue devil) and then about a day or so after that I crave using. Then I do a few here and there, then get mad for spending money/breaking my clean streak then try and get back on my subs. There are so many things that come into play. If you can, I'd say try to stay on for two months at least. I think that if my counselor would have been less accusatory I'd still be on subs. I digress, anyhoo, try to stay on your subs as long as you can because the key here is time away from your drug of choice. Time really does matter. Goodluck to us all . . .
