Discussions that mention vicodin

Addiction & Recovery board


I have been on Subutex for almost 4 weeks now takin 1 pill at 2 mg per day. Yesterday was my last pill and I am not really feeling too bad right now. In anyone's experience is Subutex and Suboxone cold turkey easier then vicodin cold turkey? It's time for me to stop. The Subutex makes me feel weird and moody. It has helped with the vicodin cravings but it is time to say goodbye for good.

Any advice would help.

Gee don't everyone answer at once :(
sub will not be easier than vicodin. Sub is way stronger than vicodin and pure....not mostly aspirin. You will be alright and you will get through it. Don't they ween you off of that? The reason it has helped with the cravings is because it is the same thing but better. Hard reality but true. I was a major heroin addict and methadone always made me stop. Eventually I did not care if I had either or when it came to my fix.

Unfortunately I have researched this and no offense but you don't know what you are talking about. These are completely two different drugs. One is an angtagonist and the other is not. They do ween you off of it sometimes but I have only been taking 1 Pill at 2mg once a day. I cut them in half and take half in morning and the other in the afternoon. I went about 40 hours without one and the withdrawals were not as bad as vikes. In fact they were not that bad at all except first thing in the morning.


Thanks to everyone for their opinion and advice.

Andrew - I'd like to help but don't know the answer about Sub vs. Vicodin cold turkey withdrawal. I'm still on the sub. But I was surprised you felt weird and moody on it? Were you tapering, when those feelings started? From my own experience, if I keep my Sub dosage level, I feel normal. Perhaps the weird and moody feelings started when you first began dropping the amounts (withdrawal)?

Anyway, hope you're feeling better, Lynn :-)
