... actually write me a script for klonopins which i dont use and from my primary i recieve 3 to 4 xanax bars a day what is the big deal with taking suboxone and benzos at the same time i will admitt at first i got a buzz from the two combined but it lasted about a week and now i just feel normal i would like a doctor to answer this question without giving me the usual "well there could be respiratory depression" from taking both i truley do not believe at ive been on both for almost a year and have never had a problem someone tell me whats the big deal and i admitted i did catch a buzz for about a week and then everythings been normal since and my life has been fantastic and im becoming a sucessful person rather than the junkie i used to be
Aside from the respiratory depression, there is going to be plain old depression. When we are on suboxone, we are supposed to be clean of "crutch' meds and the amount of anti anxiety medication you are taking would definitely be considered a "crutch." I do sometimes say to myself, hmmm, did I just trade one med for another, but when I see that I take nothing else and have weaned down to almost nothing, I am able to see the point again of me taking the subs.Did you go to the required counseling, if you did and they know you are on that much xanax, what are they telling you. If you want a buzz, why are you taking the suboxone in the first place. I am not trying to be obnoxious, you are hinting that you want to know why also. I hope things get better, that will take some work.
hi,can i ask you a few personal questions? I may just be shooting in the dark but im gonna be as honest with you as you will let me.when you were out there ripping and running were you still taking 3-4bars a day? im gonna give you the benefit of doubt and say yes you were. ok, so far? were there ever times you had to sell a few bars for money to get right cause anything is better than being dope sick? or whatever it was that got you on a "sub diet"? for me it was prescribed morphine and 2 mg bars.god i miss them fu@ken bars.chewing up 1 in the morning and taken my morphine,with a cup of coffee.i gotta say to myself sometimes "man i miss it"but when i went through detox, the only thing im sure of was that my way was not working.i asked for help cause i was not eating or drinking cause the "morphine and xanax" diet was working too well. im 6 foot tall and weighted 138 lbs.lets jump ahead to today.im still 6 foot tall but today i weight 205 lbs.these people on the clinic i go to for 4 hrs a week every week are the people that i asked for help.and mine has a no benzo policy. dude, give up them bars.k-pins is a great doc you got there.just try for sake of trying. and if it doesn't work you can always go back to bars.
