<quoted text> Excuse me it's not trading one drug for another if you are serious and want to turn your life around it's more like trading one kind of a life style for another. You really don't get high off of this drug, and yeah some people who are in withdraws are willing to buy the drug off the street just to feel better and not be sick. But if you really want to change this is one of the many things that will help you along the way, It's not magic. But the main thing it does is help you to regain control of your life. For instance people who use to lie and steal to support their habit no longer do that. People like you who only want to judge others for their downfalls are usually the ones with bigger darker skeletons in their closet.
My husband is an addict. He's addicted to pain pills. He's been trying to use Suboxone...He has been buying them off the streets because can't afford the 400. for the Dr. I am noticing now that he is freaking out wondering when/where/how he is going to get his next strip (just like he did over the pain pills)....He's not on pain pills anymore, but suboxone is controlling him now just like the pain pills did. I hate this!
Well

I can bet you he is way better off worrying about getting a Suboxone than when he was high and addicted to pain pills. Any addict would worry about how they was going to get another suboxone in fear of relapsing. I wish he could afford to go to the Dr and then he wouldn't have to worry anymore. Suboxone does not make you high unlike pain pills. Seems like you should be happy to have your husband back instead of downing him for fear of relapsing. Addiction is a very hard thing to fight. People of all walks of life can become opiate addicted and not even intend to. Suboxone works if used correctly. It is not replacing one high for another. Suboxone does not make you high, it makes you feel normal again, and takes away the cravings and withdraws. I wish you and your husband the best of luck. Maybe you can call around and see if there are any recourses available to help him get into a clinic.

I had lower back surgery in 2007 and was forced to take early retirement. I can truly understand anyone with severe, chronic pain having to depend on pain killers to just function daily. I do not however understand the concept of becoming an addict just to get high. Any doctor or clinic that does not take insurance is just a pill mill or licensed drug dealer. Good luck to all of you. I found my saving grace in Lexington so if you truly are looking for a doctor that will offer REAL help, consider looking in Lexington.

Sickofit, I became addicted to pain pills by accident. I was prescribed them for major problems in my back and neck, too many problems to mention. I started taking one, and then one didn't work, i would double up sometimes,and so on and so on. Until I found myself addicted to something that wasn't even helping my pain at all. I don't know why the clinic's don't accept insurance, but you are truley misconceived about their intentions. They are good, caring people, and they are a huge part of the recovery process.

I Know, I just had a very troubling experience with a pain clinic. Im not saying they dont help some people. What I am saying is that in a large number of cases I believe they become a part of the problem instead of the solution. Its very difficult to believe that a doctor who claims to be working in a patients' best interest dismisses a patient because that patient refuses to be over-medicated. At least that was my personal experience.

It does work for those who will use it right, and only correct. I know if mixed with methadone it may kill you, don't do that. I lost someone recently and the coroner did concur with this. It is dangerous is not used properly and if so will help you tremendously get off drugs. Use it wisely and give it time and you will love feeling "real" again, doing yourself a great service by just waiting it out and realizing what you have been missing out on life. It is a drug, yes, but do not mix it, please, use it correctly, even under guidance. Give the strips to someone who will help you to use them when necessary and who cares about you.

Our FDA is all about the money. I do not understand if they really wanted people to get off drugs, insurance should pay, they make it hard, and sometimes I wonder if on purpose for those who cannot afford it. Same goes for other meds people need, it is as if only the privileged deserve the right to life. Even the smoking medications to help people quit should be covered, I ask often, why they will not cover life saving meds for the poor or uninsured. Things need to change. It is all about the money. I guess they make more money for doctors when having to treat patients for chemo, or lung cancer, it is a shame.

I strongly agree with all of you. It is apparent that doctors do love money. I have insurance but I feel so sorry for those who cannot afford to get the help they really need because so many pain management clinics are more interested in money than they are caring for people. I truly wish all of you the very best of luck. I pray daily for all that have to deal with relentless, life changing chronic pain.
just dont agree

I am glad that people is trying get off drugs but I think these clinics are a joke. All they are doing is getting a new addiction. I believe that if people need the help getting off drugs by all means help them get over that hump. But what good is the suboxen doing these people that have been on it for years. Obviously they are just addicted to it now.

Sounds like you aren't exercising the immense will power that God gave you. If you change your behavior God will see to it that your addiction lessens over time. God will help you, but you have to do your part too... So get busy.

Just wondering does anyone know if Dr. Mays suboxone doctor in Corbin, Ky prescribes films or pills? My insurance will not cover the strips because there is a generic alternative so I thought id see if anyone knew. Thanks :)

The strips are NOT genetic! They are the Suboxone strips. The pills are being banned/ stopped because they are more easily to try to abuse. User's have melted them down whereas strips you can't. The main form of Suboxone with the new regulations will be the strips.

I was also going to advise you of a new feature for addiction. It is called Buprenorphine Implant. Same medication that's in Suboxone. The implant gives the patient a continuous dosage of the medication usually for 4/6 months. It's done in the doctors office and usually takes 10/15 mins.

I don't know how he/she would have done it. When moisture hits the strip, they start dissolving. I guess anything is possible if you want it bad enough. He/she still wouldn't gotten high from doing this. Crazy!
