What are you doing with what you are given??? Can you talk with your doctor about alternative type treatments???

For instance, have you tried acupuncture? It can be really helpful and totally relaxing at the same time.

Do you see a physical therapist who does more "manual" or hands on work??? If not, would it be easy for you to get a referral from your doctor to see someone???

I'm just throwing these things out there as "food for though".

How are you doing now, by the way? You are asking the question... "is it wrong... " You know something, if you are in pain... and I am understanding the question... then I'm not sure what you think you are putting your body through. You are suffering and you are looking for options right? Sounds like you don't like what you are taking but you so need to tell your doctor that one.

Dear I'mHopeful. Suboxone and subutex treat pain, opiate addiction, stops cravings and withdrawal, AND, it also heals the brain by reducing the extra opiate receptors called MU receptors. When your brain starts forming those, your tolerance to opiate goes up because there qre more receptors for it to grab a hold of. When someone does the suboxone or subutex program properly, it entails using a drug addiction counselor, this counselor can guide you more as to when you are ready to taper off. It can be done with no withdrawal, I did it by slow taper. My counselor got in touch with my dr, they both agreed I could taper off and have been fine now for 19 months off of it. People get "trapped" on subs when they don't use a counselor or express to the dr they do want to be off someday. As you taper down, you brain is still healing and you are reversing your opiate tolerance. The counselor can also bolster you and remind you of exactly why you are tking it.

I've been on Suboxone for 3+ years now and there's NO way I'd return to the pain meds. I still have pain but it's tolerable. To me the issue of returning to the opiates is more psychological than anything so the key to successful recovery is to be involved with not only the prescribing dr. but also a counselor/therapist and if possible, a support group. My apologies if I'm re-iterating another's response. I'm just relaying what has worked for me and I really stand by it.
