Well, it has been 4 days without Vic's and on Suboxone and I feel wonderful! The first day (Friday) was slightly rough, but only slightly! I have had more energy than I have had in years! I wallpapered my whole kitchen this weekend! It is just wonderful to wake up not needing those pills! I actually went a whole weekend without buying any pills! I havn't done that in 4 years! I swear I have had not withdrawal whatsoever, not even depression! Nothing! IT is so awesome to be free of this burden. I can't even describe how good I feel! I really hope that some of you can find a doctor to prescribe this medication for you it is wonderful and a life saver and as far as I am concerned there is no reason for anyone to ever have to go through withdrawal again! Methadone is a joke compared to this medication. I don't feel tired, irratable, edgey nothing. The first night I did have some trouble sleeping but that might have been because I was so excited! I hope that every single one of you out there that has tortured yourself the way I have, can find this medication and you can change your life the way I have. I will keep everybody updated and please don't hesitate to ask questions!

I have known 2 people on methadone...one did great, the other died of an opiate overdose(he was a patient of our medical group). Its a lesser of two evils I guess but works for some. If someone is going to go C/T they might want to try taking and weaning from Darvocet-N 100. It is related to methadone but a a weaker level. I used Darvocet to get thru the physical part and it helped comared to the last time I tried detoxing.
