I was on subocone for nearly nine months starting at 8mg and very slowly cutting back untill I found myself down to 1mg and my rx running out. The cost was so great that I said to hell with it and quit alltogether.....bad choise three days later I was in so much pain from my lower back that I did the big no no I got a rx for vicodin! I thought I could handle it this time no problem well turns out I was kidding myself. Here I am two months later on day 3(ya me) of withdrawls kind a feeling better today but the past two day were definitly not worth anything that either suboxone or vicodin did for me. It not easy but I really encourage even suboxone users to get out of the vicious cycle.
