I am wondering if anyone has been successful with coming off suboxone. I was in the clinic for 2years and couldnt afford it anymore so I quit. I had some saved back and tried to taper myself, I ran out while taking 4mg a day. My last dose was yesterday. I have been told many different stories about coming off this stuff, some say it's not bad and some say its much worse than other drugs. Before the clinic I was hooked on pain pills so i am no stranger to dope sickness. Could anybody tell me honestly how bad this is gonna be and how long it will last?? All I ever have wanted is to have the energy to get through the day. Please share any advice or experience you may have with me. I am scared but determined to be really Clean for the first time in years. Thanks

i went straight from suboxone back to pain pills and nerve pills after not be ableing to afford the cost, i smoke a little weed now for my pain and nerves. i had no trouble guiting the soboxone just went back to my same rounntine of pills again. someday i plan on going back to the suboxone clinic again. if this helps they are a doctor in leslie county- hyden, ky that gives the suboxone strips that takes a medical card because my cousin is going and also they pay for her suboxone strips - i hate to see u do like me - go back to the same old rountie. if u need the name of the doctor . let me know and i will make a phone call and get the name for u, God Bless Your Heart.

Find out the Dr. name please I am trying to come off other pills just can't be soooo sick I need something to help me out. I can't go to rehab I am a single Mom. I also would like to know if the Dr. in leslie calls child protective services if he gives you suboxone I don't know for a fact but heard some do. Thanks for any info you can give me I want rid of this crap forever as I said just can't stay sick for 3 or 4 weeks coming off methadone. I'm sure some are going to be a smart@ss about me being a Mom on pills but don't please as I said I'm honestly trying to come off them just can't afford to go to the suboxone clinic in hazard it is way to expensive.

Thank u, just me, your kind words help me. I don't want to do subs anymore, don't want to b sick either tho. so im just prayin that I can tough this out. I may need u in a couple of days to call the Dr. for me, just knowing that makes me feel better. I havent been completely drug free in longer than 10 years and the subs did save me for a while. I just have to keep telling myself, I can do this!

21 days is the answer. It is so hard, but very possible! You will get flu like symptoms then once those are over incredibly weak. You can do it! It helps to read forums consistently. You need supportive people around but if your totally serious about getting clean you can do it!

Focusing on the point of the forum, it takes several days. You have to keep pushing thru and it takes lots of willpower but you are an addict and will always be tempted. You have to be stronger now. I will say coming off "dope" is so much easier than subs. Lose those friends asap. No calls no talking or seeing. If you are serious you will make this work! You have to completely change your life and thinking. Even if it means letting family go.
just another reason

after reading these posts about people wanting to get clean & doctors taking advantage of them by over charging so that they cannot afford to get clean is just another reason that they should be sold like alcohol and sold cheap so people can afford to get off drugs. The system takes advantage of these people so they dont see another way out so they stay with drugs. If they would be affordable I think many users would become clean but selfish doctors & the system keep them stuck with drugs. God bless all these people that would do better if only they could see a light at the end of a tunnel. These doctors will burn in hell for taking advantage of them & doing it for the almighty dollar. They know they will pay any price for help but make it impossible to do.

you know it really makes me angry that people get on here wanting to know how to get off dope and where they can find a doctor that will take the medical card......Get up off your lazy ass get a job, stay occupied, take care of your kids, and stop waiting on everyone else to take care of u! That should be enuf to get u off dope...no I have never been dope sick and I thank God that I dont have a habit! I work with addicts everyday of my life and I have heard every story in the book as to why they are where they are...Im sorry u made the choice to get on drugs so u need to pull up your big girl or boy pants and get off them. Be the stronger one to overcome the addiction, Most people havent felt "normal" from being on drugs they think the first ache they really "feel" means they are dope sick! Im just saying...GET A LIFE! I have addicits on my family...we all do....I have absolutely no sympathy for an addict! Maybe you need to get an appointment at KRCC because most addicts have an underlying disease, whether it be depression, OCD, or any mental illness.......treat it first then maybe you can overcome your addiction! GOD DOES MIRACLES! PRAY!

You all are p***y people.Yes of course your a little sad.Suboxen works if you are serious about getting well and clean.Anybody knows methadone is the MOTHER OF ALL WITHDRAWLS.Suboxene not hard to come off if you are not week minded.Get a job and a hobby.Get somthing else on your mind.If you can survive 3or4 days of diarreah you got it beat.We are all able to do anything if we set our minds to it.I think people should go back to pot and tell the DRS. to f**k off,that woulg fix alot of this $30.00 and up for one pill that's going to make us sick!!!

Yes you CLEARLY know it all. People like you are so ignorant it's scary!! And heartless! Not everyone on drugs hate their kids and could careless about them. Some do want help and she was asking for it. But there are a few PERFECT people such as yourself that needs help with nothing or from no one. So go back in your HOLE and stay there!!! Because some of us do need help in this sorry world. And we could do without having to run into people like you!!
