actually probly taking about 100-120mg per day depending if i get o.c. or roxi's but still not close to as much as most on here,i just cant seem to shake it though,it's real tough for me thats why i want this suboxone to work,somethin has to give.
Suboxone (buprenorphene) is a partial antagonist opiate in the same league as Talwin. Though it works quite differently then Talwin and binds to the opiate receptors so well that nothing can knock them off the receptors.
Robert is the one who can help you with your suboxone problems. I do know that it can take a week or two to find the right dose but hang in there as suboxone will definately be a better life then abusing opiates. Good luck... Dave
Hi, I have been on suboxone for the exact same withdrawal and amount. While, it initially just made me tired, now I sweat so mmuch every time I walk outside, I'm nervous about getting off of it now because of all I've read and I wish I had just weaned off of vicodin if that were possible, but who knows maybe it's not I know it helps a lot of people, so that's good. I just don't think it does well with me.
I also just started taking Suboxone 5 days ago. I took 10 10mg Vicodin a day depending on how many I had, for the last 5 years. I'm currently taking 4mg of Suboxone twice daily, and am wondering if it is enough. I don't feel bad or good, and I'm having trouble with sleeping. No WD symptoms, though, except for a persistent feeling that something is missing.
I DO find a huge difference already and that is I don't want or even think about missing the pills, so I guess it really is working!!! I find alot of comfort in the fact that, should I be tempted to take Vicodin, I won't be able to get a buzz since the Suboxone blocks it from working in my brain.
Best wishes to all going thru the battle. Don't forget lots of prayers, God is really good to help if we just ask Him.
