Then 9months ago my daughter was born and i had to have a c-section and was prescribed painkillers which got me started again i've been taking at least 5 or 6 of which ever drug i can get for one dose and later on that night i would need another dose. Now i am trying to get off them again by taking suboxone last time i did this it helped me so much i just took a little slither of it and was fine... now i took at little slither off it and it isnt helping so i found myself taking at least 4 to 5 slithers of it throughout the day and still cant get any relief can somebody please help me and tell me what i am doing wrong i'm to ashamed to let family members know or to go to a doctor. I need advice
