Discussions that mention suboxone

Please keep us posted on what happens when you visit the doctor. You may also try to see an addictionologist (like recommended previously)if you can find one in your area. I went to see one and she recommended the fentanyl patch if all the other meds she suggested failed or did not help enough. Since you did have a problem with opiates in the past, you might also want to check out the medication suboxone. It can be used for opiate addicts, which the addictionologist was going to start me on until she realized it wasn't opiates that I was addicted to. However, there are not a whole lot of doctors that can prescribe/know about the suboxone. Please let us know what happens. I really hope you get some relief. I really understand the difficulty you are going through.
