Re: are you my friend???

Good to hear from you but sorry you are riding the roller coaster! I only have about three weeks worth of sub, so, I'll be off of it sooner or later. What I have been doing though, is stopping the sub and end up taking something a few days later because w/ds get "too much." Then after a couple of days of taking Darvocet or something, I start getting scared of going back to thirty a day and switch back to the sub...terrible I know!!!! I wish I had about a week to myself so I could get over that "hump." Just one little ole measley week....yeh, right!!!!!! Who wants three rugrats for a whole week!!!!!!LOL!

Thanks for posting! Yes, sub is supposed to help you get off of opiates but actually it is an oppiate and heck to come off of itself. I think it is more of a long term maintenance drug and I haven't used it that way. I'll try to get off the sub with Darvocet or something and get scared of taking too much of that and switch back to the sub...well, I am being repetitive...but that's why I feel like I am failing because I am "flip flopping" back and forth! And I know that this can't be good for the brain...messing with all those "receptors." UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! But, again, thanks for asking! How are you?

Take care both of you,

Re: are you my friend???

I had a question about the SUB isnt it possible to just keep lowering the dose and then just stop without feeling really sh>>>> . Im scared now I dont want back on the pills just want this all to end now the DOC made it sound that way.Could it be possible on the way the DOC does the dose for the period of time really should need to,rather than keep taking your money for them the sub?
