Hi, I'm wondering if someone can answer a question. I really want off this stuff, so Im not open to ideas that would involve me taking any opiate. I have had an addiction to opiates for two years. I started a Suboxone program a month ago. I have tapered down to .5mg. Should I jump now? PR try to go lower? I feel really great. I usually do my drops every Wednesday, so if anyone has any ideas before next Wednesday I would appreciate it! Thanks
Gosh arent we all rockin in the same boat. God this s**t sucks well i actually dont have a meth clinic i can go to cause i have no insurance. So when im out of pain meds im out. What i use is celebrex and my doc. gives me almost 50 pills in free samples so she really helps me out when she can. My doc is a paid doc it all comes out of pocket and god it aint cheap so slowly i dig myself a whole deeper every month. I think its deep enough im ready to jump in and hide from the world but since it isnt that easy i deal with it. Its not really hard to kick the opiates you just have to set your mind out to do it but its also not easy. The withdraws are horrible and i dont usually trade one thing for another cause who wants to pick up another bad habit but the celebrex is not a narcotic at all and it really does help me with my back when i have nothing. Anywho hope this helped some HAPPY 4TH michelle.
I want to mention a few things. They usually suggest you drop to .25 and start skipping days in between instead of jumping off at .5. Walking or other light exercise will help reboot the damaged neurotransmitter/receptor site connection, so, if you can, start walking or exercising now. Also there is a guy named SuboxoDoc on YouTube.com ( also know as Dr. Jeffrey Junig) and he has quite a few suboxone videos. There is also a detox clinic called New Beginnings that has YouTube videos dealing with getting off of suboxone and Dennis Hansen does those. They were very informative. Watch for signs of depression when you come off ( not all people are affected) and get appropriate treatment. Depression occurs with many when they quit former addictions or dependences. You might also google the Thomas recipe opiate withdrawal and read Thomas's journal. It will list otc and supplements he used when he came off pain pills and the journal will tell you of his progress each day. Good Luck
