Quote from KIMBEE:
Sparkocet, why did you have to taper off of the Suboxone? And did you do a slow taper? Would you say it is as bad as coming off opiates? I am so discouraged now. Also, how long were you on Suboxone? I have been on it for three months now and thinking now about how bad it is gonna be when I have to stop. Another thing, what do you do for pain, for example, root canal, minor surgery or emergency surgery? How do they override that?

i tapered because im tired of runnin to dr every month and i have no insurance and im just ready to get off sub/bup.been on sub since may 1st started on 16mg and have tapered since down to 1mg and now am down to 0.5mg (half of a half)once dailey and have been down to this small amount for 2-3weeks.keep in mind that this is just crumbs but without it i cannot function at all.sub/bup is a very strong opiate cause i can feel bad w/ds startin to come on and take a pinch of sub and the w/ds are gone.sounds like a person would be able to get off this small amount without any trouble doesnt it well think again because it is pure he** i promise ya that.it is just as bad as comin of opiates if not worse cause this is a opiate dont forget that.if you have pain no pain pill of any kind will help while the sub/bup is on the brain receptors.it can be overridden by iv use of morphine or fentyal or other strong opiates but iv only and under hospital care.unless you are gonna take it for life then think about startin to taper as the longer you take the sub/bup the harder it is to get off of imo.i think it gets in the bones and marrow and spine and cells just like regular opiates-spark
So.....what would you advise someone now who is in full addiction and will suffer w/d's if they reduce their pill intake? Afterall, addiction is ruining so many of our lives and we are all so desperate to get control back and live life the way we did before the addictions that is why we can leave one rock uncovered and I thank you Spark for having the courage to say what you've said. Thank you.[QUOTE=spark-o-cet]i tapered because im tired of runnin to dr every month and i have no insurance and im just ready to get off sub/bup.been on sub since may 1st started on 16mg and have tapered since down to 1mg and now am down to 0.5mg (half of a half)once dailey and have been down to this small amount for 2-3weeks.keep in mind that this is just crumbs but without it i cannot function at all.sub/bup is a very strong opiate cause i can feel bad w/ds startin to come on and take a pinch of sub and the w/ds are gone.sounds like a person would be able to get off this small amount without any trouble doesnt it well think again because it is pure he** i promise ya that.it is just as bad as comin of opiates if not worse cause this is a opiate dont forget that.if you have pain no pain pill of any kind will help while the sub/bup is on the brain receptors.it can be overridden by iv use of morphine or fentyal or other strong opiates but iv only and under hospital care.unless you are gonna take it for life then think about startin to taper as the longer you take the sub/bup the harder it is to get off of imo.i think it gets in the bones and marrow and spine and cells just like regular opiates-spark
