I know that there already is a post here about Suboxone and I encourage you to read it. I just want to bring it to the forefront because it saved my life. I abused painkillers for many years. The last 3 years I was out of control. I tried to quite so many times. And I finally got so tired of the lies, wasted money and numerous withdrawls that I finally decided to get help. I found a counselor who referred me to a Doctor who prescribe suboxone for me. I tell you, it has been a lifesaver for me. I have been clean 3 months now and over the last 4 years, the most number of days I was clean was about 5 and that is because I either ran out of money or drugs or both. When I started taking suboxone, I regained my life, my marriage, God, everything. I urge any of you with an addiction to opiates to look into this drug. You can withdraw from the pills in nearly complete comfort. I am still taking them but have weaned myself down from 8mg a day (which is a small amount) to 5mg a day. I will soon be down to 4 mg a day, then 3 etc. The good thing is I can keep taking them for as long as I need to take them. I just cant' drink alcohol when I am on the suboxone. Finally, you need to deal with the non-medical issues and therefore, i suggest you read my posts in the Depression Forum and the Anxiety Forum title "Sharing what worked for me". It has some helpful info in there. Good luck and if anyone needs any further info, please contact me.
