Major car accident 07/02
On going back and leg problems
DX with fibromyalgia 10/05
Goal in life:
To go bra less as much as I can!
I have been looking all day for a support chat...
Anyways, I have had chronic pain for over 20 years...anyways my use of opiates got WAY WAY WAY out of control...
I was doin around 90-100 pain pills per week...I was a mess. So I heard about Suboxone. I went to see a doc and he put me on it. No its not for pain, BUT I have to deal w/ this monkey on my back NOW and I waill see about the pain later.
I will have to say that its been medicine from heaven. I tryed kicking the dope by myself...I thought I was gonna die...Jeez!
This Suboxone? No withdrawls of anykind. See when I couldnt get the pills before I would drink excessivly, I didnt tell the doc about the drinking. Needless to say...I have no craving for anything. I just wish it worked on cigarettes the way it has on the pills and the booze. If you wanna talk? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope this answered your questions a little...OH I havent touched pills or booze in 7 days which is a miracle in itself.

Yes it is stronger then methadone but only per dosage. In other words, some find oxycodone stronger then morphine. It is an individual thing. But bupe is 30x stronger then morphine (I believe) but again one may feel the subjective effects not as strong. Also, bupe has a ceiling effect where dose's beyond 32 mg have no greater effect. In fact, they state that "less can be more"
There is an induction period where they find what does works best. As a pain med, Suboxone may be considered off lable but that may change as they are a lot of trials going on.
