There is a medicine out there for help with this- suboxone. Look it up or talk to your doctor. I thought this post might come in handy.

It's a life saver. Expensive, but you really can't weigh the cost against the good it does. You also have to find a physician with a license to prescribe it, but it's easy to find one. Suboxone is worth the search. Great post.

You have to want to get off the drugs or Suboxone does not work.

It's a very good drug, I wish more people that have dependencies on hydrocodone and percocet, ect, could get on this drug. It is TRULY a life saver! It takes away all withdrawal symptoms, so if anyone out there has an addiction to opiates, please talk to your doctor! I hope this post helps!!

It is an opiate receptor binder, which means it attaches itself to the part of your brain that makes you crave opiates. Once you've started suboxone, if you take any narcotics, including hard ones like heroin, they have no affect on you.

Wow. Thats great, I was not aware of this drug. I will have to look it up on the web. This could help so many people, but ,of course , as the other person said they have to want to get clean first.

The information I was reading said it was used on heroin addicts, but i guess it would do the same thing on any opiate. The drug seems a little dangerous. You can overdose on it and you can have withdrawl symptoms whem u stop taking it.

That's why you have to be determined to get off the drugs. Believe me, it's a better alternative than cold turkey - your addiction will still be there. The desire to be clean is super important.

I can tell you, I was addicted to hydrocodone for many years, and it really helped me with my withdrawals! It's not only for heroin addicts. I can't praise this drug enough for helping me get my life back in order. I have been clean for going on 3 months now, and I feel really good, because it has been years. For whoever has an addiction to opiates- they should really consider.

Just wanted to say that I've been on suboxone for 6 months now and it saved my life, my marriage, my kids lives, my job, everything!! Its been one of the Best things I've ever done. I'm almost completely weaned off of it now and expect to be totally off of it by September. But please please- if anyone wants to quit taking hydros and needs help then please look this med up and find a Dr and call. You may have to be put on a waiting list though. No drs in this county that are allowed to prescribe it. That's too bad because the administration at hayti hospital has been told all about suboxone and still chooses to not encourage or insist any of their dr's get approved to prescribe it. They'd rather continue to be part of the problem than the solution!!

The pain clinic in Hayti can prescribe it, I am almost certain.

Try dr. Robinette in Jonesboro. He always takes new patients and he will prescribe it. He doesn't believe in passing out pain medications. And they keep a count on your suboxone script to make for sure you aren't abusing it. It is worth it!
