kleanver how is the suboxone going - what was your habit like? i am on day 2- No withdrawls which is awesome but i am sooo groggy ( and scared).
Butterfly your story is very inspiring. I am a mother of 2 little ones and getting off these vics has been the most consuming scariest thing ever. I heard about suboxone and have been so scared to try- Now i am on day 2 and its insane how there is no WD's, except i feel kinda groggy- i am take 8 mg a day. I cant imagine never wanting that pill again. Also do you ever occasionally drink on it?
This is all so overwheming but so far thank god for sub!
HI I am Marrie I usually don't post here, mostly in the Fibro forum but was here reading some threads. I wanted to give you my 2-cents on Suboxone.
Two years ago a decided to check myself into rehad for rx pain meds, I was being rx'ed various narcotic meds by various doctors. The meds were for dibilitating headaches I was having. One day I woke up and decided no more of this crap. The headaches would never go away because they were mostly caused by rebound from the drugs. So anyway..I thought the best thing to do was check myself into rehab for a while to get the help I needed. They starting me on Suboxone and many other drugs the day that I got there. I experienced NO withdrawl symptoms. Tho only bad thing I can say is that I was exhausted all the time and it constipated me really bad. I took it for the two weeks I was inpatient tapering in down the second week. Again it did make me very sleepy but I am sure it was a combination of a lot of other things too. I did not come home on Suboxone but it was ok. I felt fine and to this day have not abused pain meds. I do take them sometimes as I have Fibromyalgia but I take the dose that is rx'ed. It works now since my tolerance is a lot lower from not abusing. I know this is kind of an old thread but thought the info may be helpful. Oh, btw..the Suboxone I was given was sublingueal (sp) melts under your tongue.
Let me know if I can answer any questions.
Hope you ar having a pain free day!

Thank you for welcoming me PaLady, that was my first post actually. Yes, fibromalgia is definetly chronic pain as well. I do belong to another form on another site as well and I thought I would try this site too.
Tramadol is non-narcotic, and it is not a schedule drug, however, I have heard in some cases that it is addicting as well, however, some days I only take a couple and then there are other days where I have to take about 8 (which is okay, my rx is for 2 4x/day).
Some days I don't take any at all and I do not have any withdrawals from it. I guess it just all depends on the person as well. However, since it is non-narcotic, I would definetly suggest going on Tramadol to get off the heavy duty pain meds.
Thanks for listening
Thank you PALady, I really appreciate your kindness towards me.
I did know about that, however I do have chronic pain as well and like this site as well. I also like to help people in need, as I was once there especially when doctors give you pain medicine and then just stop all of sudden. This is what happened to me, and the withdrawals were horrible. After that, I went to another doctor and told them I did not want narcotic pain medicine and he gave me tramadol.
That is why I am here to help out and to get advice for my chonic pain. I do belong to another site and I get a lot of advice for my fibro and arthrits.
Hi Straydog, thank you for welcoming me.
I am so sorry that you have to be couped up in the house. It is that hot where I am as well.
Yes, Fibro is no fun, we have our days on and off too, it is pretty much the same as chronic pain, because you always have it.
Well, take care and have a good Thursday, gotta get back to work.
