I have been addicted to opiates since I have been 15(oxycontin) then at 18 started using heroin. I have gone back and forth between heroin and suboxone for the past 8 years. My Dr. has me on Xanax and Ambien, and since I am an addict, I find myself abusing that also. I am down to 2 mgs of sub a day but cant seem to make it off of the subs. I thought that the Xanax would help me with some of the withdrawels but I obviously withdraw from them also... Need to know what has worked for yinz in the past because it seems like no matter what I am always taking something to change my mood and no longer can take being addicted to all of these things! Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
i totally feel you i got addicted to o.c.s at 15 allso.and its been a long ride i tried methadone and got hooked on it and now i am on suboxone 8mg a day but its not doing what it use to do to me,you said it when you said you would do anything to change your moods i also take ativan and klonipin i have been on suboxone now for 5months and pretty much have decided to stay on it.at least with this im not going to be on some other opiates that lets face it its hell to try to keep the pills or the heirion around at least with suboxone i am stable..so you might want to think about how long you would last off suboxone before you where right back to where you started
