... to quit doing Roxys but hate the withdrawals and always take another to relieve the symptoms. Will Suboxone help me get over the hump to freedom.Yes I am also attending NA
Yes, Suboxone will help to quell withdrawal. You can find Sub docs in your area by googling it, I believe you just need to add your zip code to find a list of docs. Pattishan61 is our resident Sub expert here, hopefully she will see your question tonight, and help you out.
If you don't mind, please add more info, how much are you taking, how were you taking it, ingesting it, snorting it or shooting it (no offense meant by those questions, we just need the info to better answer your question!!! ).
Best of luck to you, and keep posting, we care...
If you do get on Suboxone just become more educated on what your getting yourself into. For some Suboxone has been life saving, for some it is just as difficult to get off of than their regular drug of choice. So my suggestion is to become as educated as possible before just doing it. And remember doctors do get incentives for selling their products. Meaning that once they get you on they will try to keep you on, and sometimes give you far more than what you really need. Well that was my experience anyway.
Look I'm not trying to tell you not to, cause Suboxone helped me to get clean, but having said that, the 18 months it took me to get off has been very very difficult. My doc was not a very supportive one. I presume that I should have been on Subutex because of the side effects that I was getting from Suboxone, but my doc refused to switch me over. This only propelled me forward into getting off as fast as I was able to.
Once again, become very educated in what you'd be getting into, set goals for yourself if your wanting to that freedom your talking about. Having goals will help you get closer to that freedom. Oh and have open conversations with your doc, don't be afraid to ask questions of your doc! Best wishes okla51m!!
While you have to experience a bit of withdrawals before you can actually start the suboxone, it does relieve most of the withdrawals done correctly. I can recommend a website that explains how suboxone induction, maintenance and taper work: http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Subutex-or-Suboxone
