Exclamation Suboxone addiction (please help)

Hey all,

I need some advise and please all jump right in and give away! I have been on a Suboxone treatment program for about 2 years now after a 2 year battle w/Norcs! I want to get off of them but is hard with the type of work that I do. I have been taking 8mg/day (or sometimes more), and I ran out at work (500 miles from home ) It sucked and I had to come home. I honestly had no idea that the withdrawl symptoms would be this bad! I told the Dr. that I had ran out early and asked him how long it would take to kick the habit. He told me 5 days!!!. I have to admit when he said that, I knew he was full of it! I don't know what to do b/c I felt so bad that I have been taking 30mg/morphine IR (instant release) tabs a day to just help me function! What should I do???? Thank you all for your advice!

Re: Suboxone addiction

Your doctor wasn't too far off when he said 5 days. He's probably just thinking of the withdrawals. From what i've read, sub withdrawal is a little longer than most standard opiates, probably around 7-10 days to be feeling 'good' again.
