Well, I have decided to get off oxy/roxy and my Dr. Prescribed me 8mg subutex. He didn't really explain how tge drug works or how should I take it, so I'm very confused and scared. I saw that Robert_325 was very knowledgeable in the area, and if I may be so bold, would you able to help if you see this? My dr was in a bad mood and all he said was to dissolve the pill under my tongue 14hrs from my last Oxys. I've been reading a lot about it and everybody seems to have a different answer. If anybody can help I would be most grateful. I'm alone in this and I don't want to tell anyone. I'm scared that it won't help with the w/d or that I'll have a bad reaction. Please help
please do yourself a small favor and go you YouTube.com and look up SuboxDoc and look for his 2 part video on how suboxone works, subutex is the " sister" medication that does not have the naloxone, the second blocker med in it. I really hate to condemn a medical professional, but your doctor is not doing a good job of treating you, it actually is irresponsible of him. If you will go to the forum part of this site, you can post a thread to Robert-325, the hphen should be an underscore, sorry texting from phone and don't know how to do an underscore on this keyboard. Robert tends to prefer the forum, you could also go to his profile by clicking his avatar ( see community top members or look him up with search on community page) and ask him a private question. Please do yourself the biggest favor of all in this battle and do the addiction therapy, it can add much needed support and keep you from relapsing. SuboxDoc has many great videos that are easy to understand and cover almost anything about suboxone you can think of. I highly recommend them. Be sure to keep checking the status of your pq to Robert, give him a day or 2 to answer a pq. He answers a bit faster on the forum. Be sure to wait that time, I waited 24 hours opiate free, and also, don't take benzos, muscle relaxers, drink alcohol while waiting to start subutex, it can slow your breathing down, could even stop you breathing in combo with subs. Please watch those vids, will help alot. Good luck, pattishan61
Hi flresident123... I just added you as a new friend! I am SuboxoneJay. I have a few shared friends of yours and had a MUTUAL friend reach out to ME only minutes ago, to see if I can help you! I am here... There is a BIG difference between Subutex and Suboxone!!! I take Suboxone and have done so for almost 4 years now. I used to take the Tabs at 32mgs a day, but recently switched to the strips and feel they are MUCH better! I am a SOBER man for 5 years and 8 days today! PLEASE, you do NOT have to suffer alone! I am well versed in my field and as I said, a MUTUAL friend JUST asked me to reach out to you NOW! Please feel free to add me as a "friend" and we can talk... you need not be confused or suffer alone here... Please reach out... I am at a keypad length away... Jay...
