I have a drug test in 10 days. I am scared to death it will be positive. I am an idiot. I am on suboxone for treatment and here I go for the first time taking it bc I just wanted to see if it worked... DUMB..i know enough about suboxone to know that it blocks opiates..I did it for... I don't know... testing reasons??? I am stupid... don't need a lecture... already received one from my sponser and my husband. Can anyone tell me the very longest the 3 vic's will stay in my system? If I test negative I think I have to go in weekly instead of monthly which is quite costly. Help please.
Screwed up. took 3 5/500 vicoden?
Added 8 Aug 2010:
Thank you for all the replies. Just to add - i felt like crap most of the day yesterday-was as if the suboxone was not working. I read somewhere it can put you back into withdrawal after doing what i did? Today i have the shakes...BUT i think that is because last night i was sitting on the floor reading to my kids and then i stood up too quickly and hit the top of their dresser drawer which was opened VERY HARD. I made a horrible "OUCH!!" shriek...(i actually have a high pain tolerance but this really hurt) and my husband came into the room and asked me if i was ok. I saw stars...and was dizzy. We felt my head and sure enough - a pretty large lump appeared quickly. It was odd - i felt as though all i wanted to do was go to sleep..but i was not sure if it was because of the withdrawal feelings i had or simply because i was tired?? Either way-put an ice pack on it and he (husband) made me stay awake so he could watch me...kept asking if i was dizzy, felt nauseaus, (i did) - but we sat on the couch for an hour and he had me counting, etc to make sure there wasn't any signs of a "hemmorage, etc." Today he let me sleep in and he took care of the kids and i took my 2 mgs. of sub. when i woke up - and i took 1 mg. of clonezpam (been on it for years) to help with the shakes and 2 advil. i slept from 2 am last night until 2:30 PM TODAY. Quite a rest...but i guess i needed it. He kept checking on me...(he is a nurse) and said i was talking nonsense in my sleep but then again i am on the rancid chantix...(day 5)...only side effect is warped dreams...REALLY strange dreams.
Ok - so i typed a book here - but my question is should i just tell my Dr. that i am getting craving for opiates again? (my pill of choice was Roxy's and Vicoden when I ran out of them)? Maybe I am not ready to step down. I have a friend i made on another forum whom has helped me immensly with the step down program..but maybe i am not ready to stay on 2 mgs.? Damn..i just want off this stuff SO very badly...but obviously i need it. It has been 8 months!!! the longer i stay on it, the harder it is to get off - that i know...so its a catch 22....Do I up my dose a bit to stop the cravings/ temptation or stay where i am at to get me off the lovely taste & addicting subs asap? OR IS IT NORMAL to have a slip up like i did??? I really wasn't craving it i guess..more like a "wonder if this will work and make me feel good??" My parents ALWAYS have vicoden around and this was the first time I ever touched it. BTW, nobody knows I am on subs besides my husband and friends. NO FAMILY. I come from a very judgemental family and they resort to name calling and yelling whenever one of their kids (we are all in our 30's) does something bad so to speak. SO....ok...i feel better now - clonezpam kicked in while i wrote this and no more shakes...what do you all think about increasing my dose for a short amount of time or just stick to my plan...(trying to get off subs ASAP!!).... wow -sorry - i wrote a lot..Thanks everyone...
Hi wannabeclean, I agree with mrspage, don't beat yourself up over your slip.
Take your clonazepam, and stay away from the GD opiates!!! I promise, the cravings will go away. I did a cold turkey withdrawal, and that taught me a great lesson... I NEVER want to go through that again... ever!!
If your parents keep opiates in their home, perhaps you should avoid visiting, have them visit you. Just an idea.
This is a great forum to vent and talk about what you are going through. The people here are really caring and supportive. Please let us know how you are doing... we care.
