I am an addict because i have endometrosis and kidney failure and before i was diagnosed with all this i was in a lot of pain and i had a friend who would give me stuff to help the pain. Then i started buying stuff cause it helped and made me feel good in my screwd up life. Now that i am diagnosed with this stuff what the doctors give me dont help and now that i want a baby i want to be clean. Me and my fiancee are almost done with college (im going for my criminal justice degree and hes going to be a police officer) and both have good jobs, now there is only this standing in our way. Ive been thinking about getting on suboxone but ive heard many bad things but i am also very very very scared of the pain from withdrawls so im kind of stuck. Any advice
You might want to start on Subutex... rumour has it that tis not bad for a fetus, and Suboxone just may be bad for a fetus. I am not an expert on Suboxone, yet I do know that much.
Please google both meds, and do try to ignore the negative things you read and what people say about Subs!!
You might not like what i have to say Kelly but I would not get pregnant right now. I feel really bad for you. I know what it is like getting , finally getting that relieve from the pain. Then feeling good off the relief. I do not know a lot about endometriosis but I have some knowledge. It is painful. I have personal experince with kidney failure, tumor , stones etc. I suppose I am beating around the bush. You are in criminal justice, you and Fiance will be urine tested often. Unless I am wrong before you have a baby you need to focus on you. You are so young, just graduating? I can not believe it is necessary to have a baby now unless due to your conditon you are unable to in the future. Is that so? If not, then fix your medical problems. You have to before you can be the best mother you can be.
I am not judging you and my heart does go out to you but you know the law and in your field you can not be buying pills because the ones prescribed are not touching the pain or are they not providing the buzz? I was never scared of the pain, as much as I was the sickness that comes with the withdrawals. that is what I think you are facing. If i am off base I apologize, if I am right and you want to get clean then suboxone will help those withdrawals. You are too young to have been at this too long. Tell your DR about the pills tell him theones he gives you do not help now. Tell him ask him for his help. I hope you can straighten this out. What a wonderful life you guys ahead of you. But if have this addiction, if it escalates it will not help. Forgive my bluntness are you already pregnant? If not then wait until you are clean. You can get clean and you can have that same utopia when you see your baby's face for the first time when you are clean.
I wish you the best
I have heard good things about suboxene on this site. Others could help you more with that info if your interested. I admire your desire to get clean and have a baby. I believe you can do it. My only advice would be to take your time. Get clean, stay clean for at least a year and then try for that baby. Getting clean is more than the physical you will need to be mentaly clean too, to raise a little one. Please be honest with your doctor and ask for advice about getting well. Hopefully he/she can put you in contact with the right resources for you. If you feel judged by your doctor or he isn't helpfull, leave him and find one that will help. Most doctors will understand addiction and aren't interested in anything illegal you may or may not be doing. You need help before jumping into the next stage of your life. Good Luck, I know you can do it. -Mel
First, I am not a doctor, so i can't tell you tabout all the horrible effects of opiates and suboxone on women of child bearing age and thier potenial off-spring. You will need to see an MD for the distrubing details.
Second, I am a mom, so I can tell you this with authority. DO NOT have children if you are in anyway dependant on drugs. Get clean. Stay clean for ten years. After that, think about getting married and having a kid.
