... switching to a pain medication instead. There is no way I can afford w/ a baby 700 bucks a month. If I can change to a pain med wouldn't I need something stronger then a loratab or percocet to get me out w/ds faster? Will I w/d even though I am transitioning and if so for how long until the opiate can enter the receptor and alleviate my w/ds? Would it be same as if I had just went cold turkey off the subutex? I CAN'T W/D AND TAKE OF MY CHILD W NO HELP SICK SO IT'S IMMEPERATIVE THIS ? IS ANSWERED 911 PLEASE AND THANK YOU.
