Hi there and thank you for your input. I am happy to say that after a week, my symptoms did totally go away.
Triposchris, I don't know your situation, but judging from your post you dont sound happy about the fact that you are on suboxone 4 years later. I personally am a chronic relapser and I always have been. It has been over a month that I am on sub now, and if it weren't for that, I would have relapsed again. I know that not everyone looks at sub the same way, and there are a ton of opinions on it. But, I will take sub the rest of my life if I have to. I am open to that. I don't know where I'll be or how I'll feel a year or ten years from now, but for now that's how I feel. I don't think that there is anything wrong with taking a low maintenance dose for the rest of your life if that's what keeps you from relapsing. I would rather take a pill once a day for the rest of my life, than relapse over and over. That's just me.
How have you been in these four years? Has your life improved? Have you relapsed at all? I'd really like to know more about how it has been for you long term. I like hearing peoples experiences with it. Do you think that you are better off with it?
Good luck to you and don't be too hard on yourself. You aren't using and that's a GREAT thing! Try to remember that.
