My husband has been addicted to drugs, such as opiates and benzos as long as we have been married, for the past 3 years and a few years before that. He recently started treatment with SUBOXONE. The thing I am wondering if this just replaces the drug he is addcited to. The first couple of days he seemed so motivated and talked about how he feels he can change his life, and then that positive talk disappeared. He has been falling asleep within an instant, and getting that funny look in his eyes, and that muffled/garbled sound in his voice when he talks... the same way he acts when he was using the drugs. He says it is just the medication making him drowsy, but the nurse and program director said that suboxone cannot produce any type of "high" effects in the patient. They said they are almost 100% sure he is using something else, such as Xanax, because that is not an opiate and suboxone doesnt prevent use of it. My husband and I have argued over this because he swears he isnt using anything else, and it's just the suboxone causing those effects. And I know he is taking it because I see him place it under his tongue and hold it there everyday. I don't want to accuse him of using drugs if he isnt, but from what they've told me and his history of lying to me... I don't know what to believe. Does SUBOXONE make people HIGH?! Is it just another addicting drug?

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
