I hope you are all doing well on the suboxone as my and my wife are. Bu t I feel it time to put it away and become 100% drug free. The treatment plan has saved my life both actually and figurative. It has saved my family and my marrige. My wife and I became hooked on opiates and damn near lost out marriage, forced us into bankruptcy. We had heard about the sunatex fro a hbo show years ago then my sister went to local doctor for some other reason and found out he offered the program. I call the doctor and spoke with him on the phone about a month before I finally gave it a go. In this one phone call I felt hope for the first time in a long time.
Fast forward a few weeks and I am on my weekend pill run hitting my 5 pain clinics, Well i got all my scripts but by the time I got to first Rx I was blackballed and feeling pretty bad. This was a Saturday 2pm. The Suboxone doc had given me his cell phone number in case I ever needed to talk so I called him up and at that moment my wife and I decided it was time. . .
The good doctor told us to not take anything else and to be at his office at 6 am Monday morning..
Monday feb 14 2007 my life started over. ( I can barely keep from tearing up right now ) By 7:00 am I felt alive for the first time in a long time, over the next few hours I felt my body wake up from a 5 year opiate slumber. With my wife right beside me we talked about all the weekends we spent on the hunt for pills instead of at the baseball games with my son.
fast Forward till today, We have been on 4mg 1 time a day each for the past 5 years ( in 2 months ).
Life has been great my life has improved I make double the money I was making then, I really couldn’t ask for more.
Now I feel its time for me to say goodbye to the suboxone. This stuff saved my like but I think I am ready to move on. I had the option awhile back to get off the suboxone for a few days and get on strong opiates for moth a back injury and to get my wisdom teeth removed, I choose Advil and my dignity.
I need to know of others experiences, what helped what didn’t. My doctor has told me one option is to take double my normal dose on a Weds. and that be my last dose? Has anyone tried this? are there any meds I should ask him for?
a friend told me NOT to smoke pot but to maybe get a few closapam and vitamins. Any Help would be aprechiated
And when I do try this I will make a journal type record to share with others. tbh I am scared shitless.
