... I have been using pain killers for about a year straight and the way its going is starting to scare me. I want to stop them but I cant, I know I need help. I bought a Suboxone off the street today, it was an 8mg orange tablet. I cut it into 4 quarters and one of the quarters I cut in half and then snorted it. Was that wrong? The person I bought it from said that is what I was supposed to do. I felt instantly better after not having anything for a full day but now am having a terrible headache. I want to actually go through a Dr. for the Sub and do it right and get clean for good, my only concern is location. I live in a very small town, we have no rehab centers here or methadone clinics or anything. Can a regular doctor just give me a prescription? Any answers or advice is very appreciated
You DON'T snort suboxone. That's what happens when you listen to goofballs selling drugs on the street. Here is a link explaining how I suggest using subs. I do this every day and lots of people use this process in the link. Pay close attention to the INDUCTION section of the link. Let me know how I can help you if you want my help. Good luck.
You can go to www.suboxone.com and type in your zip code and the number of miles you're willing to drive to see a sub dr (they have to be sub-certified to RX suboxone). The site will give you a list of all sub drs in the area you designate. Hope that helps.
You actually believed a dealer when he said to snort it? You don't snort anything unless your trying to get high as hell. You have to go to a sub dr to get a script,it's the only legal way really. Family dr's and regular dr's can't perscribe subs,I kn ow it sux but that's how it is. Your most likely gonna have to drive a little bit to find a sub dr but if it helps keep you off the street then it's worth it.
First, you musn't snort or shoot or swallow Suboxone. You will not give it a chance to work properly, if at all. Second, not just any doctor can prescribe Suboxone, unfortunately. Only certain doctors can; doctors must take a certain class and such in order to be certified to prescribe suboxone. I'm in sort of the same boat as you; I buy Suboxone from the street because i'm trying to kick a morphine habit and can't afford rehab. I went to my doctor and asked him to help me kick my addiction and he said good luck. Some doctors, like perhaps a primary care physician, will attempt to ween you off of your painkiller by subscribing it to you in lesser and lesser dosages, making the withdrawals more managable; but doctors don't often do this as it can lead to more abuse and a loss of his medical license. Afterall, it is illegal for a medical professional to prescribe narcotics to "junkies", even in an attempt to help. Good luck.
