... stay on it. I have attempted discussing it with him to no avail. He told me that it is ok to be on it forever! I am so scared to do it without any guidelines or support. Is my doc getting kickbacks from the drug company? I have no insurance and spend almost $200 a month on the rx. Does anyone have advice for me? I know I got myself into this mess and take full responsability. But why do doctors treat opiate addiction with even more addictive opiates? I guess money rules the world!! I am open to any help available!
