| | Suboxone (pros/cons)?!?!?!?!?!?!
I'll try to keep this short and straight to the point, but there is sooooo much to say. The main objective of this post is to bring attention to the REAL affects, whether good or bad, of Suboxone when used to treat opiate addiction.
Most of the time, on threads similar to this, people see it necessary to Google the subject and then paraphrase the "clinical reports" dispersed by the pharmaceutical companies and clinics.....prospering from our "habits."
We all know what the literature says, but I have more interest in what YOU have to say! Although my academic career revolves around the aforementioned "clinical reports," actual life experiences are far more telling than the "numbers."
Ok......here's the point....I have been taking Suboxone for almost 18 months and I am beginning to wonder if the daily exhaustion, inexistent desire to do anything, severe stomach issues, depression, and SIMILAR W/D SYMPTOMS as the prescription opiates after Suboxone is worth it!! It almost seems like I would be better off using the oxy - at least I would enjoy some things, and when I wanted to quit, I know I would come around after a few days - not weeks!!!!!
Please....I know you are out there, going through and thinking the same thing, share your story! How has your experience with Suboxone been? What symptoms have you encountered? Do you think you would have been better off just dealing with the opiate w/ds? With regard to symptoms - has anyone had reoccurring constipation, cramps, and blood in stools???
