Ive been on suboxone for 6 months 2 mg's a day. I went to detox for 5 days to get off of it and now I'm a week clean from all opiates and I was so miserable this morning I got 4 more 8mg subs and took 2 mg's. I feel like I'm condemned to be on subs for the rest of my life. Why was i sooo irratable even 7 days clean??? I hate this!! i want to make a class action suit against suboxone! any advice on how to get off this shit once and 4 all and get past the mind****? Thank you!!
I am so sorry you feel like hell. I will call pattishan61, she is our resident Suboxone expert, she can help you out.
I did it cold turkey, so my hell passed. May I ask you to add how long you were on opiates and how much you were on, because patti will probably need that info before she answers your question???
thanks and hang in there, this too shall pass,
Hey Joe. Patti should be along soon to help you out with this. Sweetlemon is such a sweetie, isn't she? Now I don't know much about subs but this I DO know. It's very, very strong! After you detoxed, you said you took 2mg after about a week of heebie jeebies, right? I think that was too high a dose. With your system clear of every opiate, I'll bet 1mg would have sufficed. Too late to take that back though. When the time comes, you should taper off more slowly. Even a fraction of a mg will do wonders. If you crush up a 2mg pill, you'd be surprised how long it can last, taking only little amounts of this super strong drug. Sweet is so right about things you should do while you're tapering off the subs. Exercise, eating healthy, lots of fluids, etc. It's also beneficial to seek some type of counseling too. It will help you understand addiction and how to avoid future relapses. Hang in there Joe. It will get much easier.
Hi Joe, I'm trying to get off NORCO that I've been
On for a year after a couple tragedies in my life. I was addicted to Tussionex cough syrup which is so deadly. I don't even know whst it means to get high from norco, I take 4 10 mg tablets a day,
And feel angry most of the time. I have no idea why I'm compelled to take something that is driving me mad. I was self medicating my physical and emotional pain with first wine then Tussionex and now this. I almost checked into a rehab that was going to 'get me started' (key words) on suboxone or methadone but why would I want to spend more money to get hooked on yet something else?. What was the doctors thinking on putting you on suboxone? Are you better off now than before... any difference? I think sweetlemon did it the best with biting the bullet and getting it over with... I'm scared and exhausted and confused.
rget what it feels like to be normal. Do you think a rehab for 4 or 5 days just to jump start me would help? I dint want to get hooked on something else. what do u think u will do? Have NA meetings helped u at all
