Addiction & Recovery board


With me still on Suboxone, does that mean any less of me?? Does that mean I technically am NOT clean like to feel like. I am in the taper section of the program, I was taking 16 mgs of Suboxone (1 8mg pil in the morning and 1 8mg pill at bedtime.
I would love some tips on how to kick this completely.
Another problem I have is that my hands shake uncontrollably. I have xanax to remedy this, but isn't that just putting another illegal chemical into a body that can't have these types of drugs?? Any advice would be helpful. Thank You and congrats to all who chose to give up this life of misery. In case anyone hasn't heard this before, it's never to late to save yourself from the rigours of drug addiction. Goood Luck to all and hope to hear from you soon. Kevin.

Hello S,

I would listen to whatever your doctor recommends at this point.

Have you been prescribed xanax; if not I would discard the medication ASAP and consult with your physician.

Take care.

You are in active recovery. just like g8r said - being on sub keeps you off the streets and out of the doctors office. its a great thing. so many people that have tried and tried to get sober but just keep relapsing and relapsing are finding great hope with this drug. Please try not to feel guilty for being on it. Just think of how much better of a place you are in right now, compared to where you used to be while on oxy and dope, ya know? What a blessing !!!

As far as the xanax, i would talk to my doc and see if there was anything else that might help with this symptom. Do you know the cause of it? When did it start? when you started sub? or has it been going on for a long time?
all i know is that if i were on xanax i wouldnt feel as if i had a clear head. but thats just me.

good luck with this. and please take care. hope to hear back from you. oh yeah - welcome to the board !!!
