I was calling around trying to find info on Suboxone for my son who has a dependency on oxys. He claims that he is not using like he has in the past, just on occassion, but cannot seem to suppress the cravings. His therapist thinks he should go on suboxone. I, on the other hand, am not so sure of this suggestion. Anyway I was talking to one Dr.s office, and they said that he should try Vivitrol if he is not actively using. They said that he'd have to come in once a month for the shot....There's no monitoring or anything. That doesn't sound like something stable to me.
If anyone out there could share with me their experiences with either I'd greatly appreciate it. I pray everyday for my son's recovery and wish to see him smile again.
