I don't recommend somas as an alternative to Suboxone. It will not do the same thing chemically that the Suboxone does. Suboxone therapy needs to be for much longer than a week. It takes some a week to just stabilize on the Suboxone, then you should begin to feel much better. I would stick with the Suboxone therapy and your 12 step program. What dose of Suboxone were you taking when you relapsed?
Your other alternative is methadone therapy. It has its pros and cons as well. I would do some research on it before talking to the doctor. It is more difficult to get off of then Suboxone in my opinion. To read more about methadone treatment go to:
Good luck and stick aorund we are here to support you. There are numerous folks on this site that have been where you are. Stay in touch,
The suboxone will work if you give it a least three weeks to a month, and as for combinding it with xanax is very dangerous. It causes respority distress. I would not take soma's. I have been through the suboxone program for opiates. I know it's not the same withdrawls symptons, but if you really want to quit. Get in a program, and also be treated by a physcian so you can be counsiled and you can talk with others about your addiction. They will give you tips on how to overcome your withdrawls. The ansewer is not to do other for comfort. It does more harm and it more or less like a trade off for another high. Hope you suceed your journey..
