I am sickened that I am now so physically dependent on this drug after being told by my doctor specifically that it is in no way addictive. It has ruined my life, I have no feeling as in passion for anything normal. No desire to listen to music, do anything fun, good food, vacations, family gatherings, friends,just completely flat, not alive. It is horrible and I cannot live like this anymore but I don't know how I am going to be able to get off this highly addictive, life altering medication and if I will ever feel normal again. Has anyone been here and successfully overcome? or have any advice from experience? Please help, I need my life back, my family needs their wife and mother back.
It's hard to imagine that a doctor would tell you suboxone is not addictive! I've never even heard of suboxone being used for depression. You'll have to detox off of it. Go to the suboxone support group with your concerns and you can get a lot of information and help there. You can get your life back and detox from the suboxone, don't worry. Best wishes!
When I read your post I couldn't believe it. Your story is exactly the same as mine, exactly. Have you ever tried to ween yourself off? You're the first person I have found that has this problem. Why would a doctor put us on this for depression/anxiety and also tell us it's not addicting? If I would have known this would have happened I would have never touched the stuff. Maybe we can help each other. I do have many different plans that I have found on the internet. I'm wondering how much you are taking. I take between 1-1/2 mgs. to 2 mgs. per day. I feel like I'm not even living. It's terrible. I could sit and look at the wall all day. If it wasn't for my two beautiful daughter's sometimes I think of giving up. I'm really in trouble because I take the subutex. The suboxone made me sick but it's the same thing just with naloxone in it. They stopped making the subutex name brand because I believe people were abusing it and the only generic that I can take is by Teva which I can't seem to find anywhere. My psychiatrist says that my opiate receptors are not working properly and that's why I need this. He says that it would be fine for me to switch to Vicodin but he can not prescribe it. Why can't he? He's just going to let me suffer? What kind of doctor is going to prescribe to me vicodin for depression? I'm so looking forward to hearing from you! Sincerely,
