ok so ive been verry stupid the last year and a half and got my self on the H, and even more stupid got given a few boxs of 8mg suboxone which i had been having half of a tab a day and then a quarter for a month or 2..any way i tried giving up cold turkey from id say 1.5 mgs and went 8 days basicly with nothing on the third day i was in pain but handled it then on 6th 7th and 8th day it has been that sickening and i have started a new job on the sixth day that today i gave in and had about 0.8 mgs cos i just couldnt handle it any more especially startind a new job..and felt better within 3 hours of taking it..now i have two weeks of work and then im off over seas for a week... so you can see my problem..my questions are... did i just blow my 8 days of withdrawrals by having that bit today or did i only take one step back, secondly... can i take a couple over seas with me..not being prescribed and all..thirdly would a doctor although not prescibing the drug to me would he give me some kind of letter of permission that i can have them on me?
and any more tips to get of this crap would be great..was almost thinking of doing the h a few months till the suboxone is out of my system and then giving up the h... as it sounds easier..
Withdrawal comes from the neurotransmitters and receptor sites being damaged and not functioning correctly, so, switching to H to avoid bad withdrawal is NOT going to work. The reason that a person goes into withdrawal is that the body sends other signals to the brain to release its own opiate ( or take some more) because the neurotransmitter to receptor site system is down and offline, it sends multilple signals to attempt to bypass that damaged system. No, no doctor can give you permission to take a medication he did not prescribed for you, the prescription IS the permisssion. Only doctors licensed with a special training and DEA license can write a legal prescription for it. If you taper down more on the suboxone, this is how you can get off of it without withdrawal. I do have the taper schedule I used in my profile story. Once the brain is healed, you can taper down and off and avoid withdrawal. The brain has got to heal first tho, before you will be withdrawal free off of suboxone. Not sure if you can sneak them over seas with you, but you will NOT be able to get a different doctor to write a permission slip to have them, like I said, the rx sheet is the permission sheet until you get a bottle with your name on it.
hi battle,I feel your pain.i tryed the same thing while i was on morphine. everything that patti just told you was taken from her own experience.she is very knowledgeable on this subject. your idea of doing"H" to get off sub is crazy. "sorry". sub stays the same strength,h on the streets can be very different in its potency. and if you have been on sub for awhile,street drugs can and will hurt you. as far as taking sub past security you may get away with it. it won't set off metal detector. on your way out of the usa and in to a different country you will be under new laws. i have taken meds on planes and never had a problem.put them in a bottle with your name it. good luck. p.s. try a doctor when you get there.
