Update - Thanks

Well I went to the doctor today and it went good. The doctor gave me a script for 10 8/mg suboxone. The doctor pretty much said that I mest up my nero transmitters that produce all the stuff that makes you "feel good" naturally. The only bad thing was that office visit cost me $400 + $70 for the script. I feel so much better that I decided to get help but now have to deal with the legal part of this addiction. I wanted to thank the two people who responded to my first post. It was really comforting knowing that I wasn't alone in this. For anyone else who reads this, for the people who are on suboxone who long do you have to be on it? And when I come of the sub will the withdrawl be as bad as coming of the lortab? Thanks again for the advise!

Hi Gee

I have never used sub of any kind. With any opiate, there is going to be withdrawal. However, we can survive withdrawal if our mind is in the right place. The sub will allow for this.... the time to get your mindset where it belongs and the time to think straight enough to get a solid plan in place for staying off whatever was being abused.

The timeline for sub is individual. Some use it for but a week and get off. Some have been on it for moonths and even years. Again, it is where your head is that will make the decision for you as an individual.

Have you developed a plan with a doctor for staying off opiates and narcotics? WHEN that is solidly in place will probably be the time to detox and withdraw. The time to focus on withdrawal is AFTER a full plan, including aftercare, is formulated.

Wishing well and hoping for success
