I had the problem with pain pills for two years. When I reached having to take 5 percocet 10 mgs at a time, i knew i had to do something. Way too much money being spent. I found a suboxone doctor and got set up. I have been on suboxone for 3 years and 4 months. I started on 3 suboxone 8 mg a day. So happy not to have withdrawals. I am now down to taking 1 - 8 mg a day. half in the morning, half in the afternoon. I was actually prescribed to take them 1 and half a day. So this time my script lasted longer. I had to reschedule my doctor appt 3 times because I kept getting called into work the day of my appt. I have a career job and im a single mom of two boys, so i did not want to risk losing my job. I didnt know my doctor had a problem with the rescheduling cuz he rescheduled me before. the third time though, he got mean. he wouldnt see me for a week and knowing i only had a half left, he would not call the pharmacy. He told me to go to the E.R. or buy some off the street. I took my last half yesturday morning and i already feel the withdrawal coming on. Im scared. The withdrawal from pills was bad, but i hear withdrawal from suboxone is worse. I dont know what I should do. I dont have insurance so i dont want to continue to throw money away. Should I find another doctor to finish my weening or should I just try to tough it out?? Im a wimp when it comes to feeling like crap. I have too many people depending on me right now, to lay in bed for weeks. HELP?? any good advice will be greatly appreciated, thanks
