It's been a tough transition going back onto the pain meds. Because of the blockers in the Suboxone, the pain meds aren't wanting to work very well. I know they will in time, but it has been hard. The pharmacist told me it would only take a few days for all of the Suboxone to leave my system, but I have read stories where it has taken a couple of weeks to almost a month for some people. I guess my body chemistry bonded really well with the blockers so it is taking more time for me than for others. I could really use some encouragement and prayers right now. I really want the pain meds to start working again. I need to have a tooth pulled, but I can't until the pain meds start working right. You guys are like family, and most of my family doesn't know that I am back on pain meds, so I can't really talk to many people about this.

Sassy,

I hope that the pain meds are able to work for you soon. Did the suboxone work at all for you? My sister was going to start taking it, I don't know if she did or not. She also has fibromyalgia. I hope the levels go down so that you can start taking your pain medications soon. Will be praying for you. I know how awful it is to suffer with pain.

Hugs, Karen

getting by: The Suboxone did help me for quite some time. For some medications, though, I just build up a quick immunity. When I first started taking the Suboxone, I felt on top of the world. This is especially true for people getting off pain meds. Actually, I have never heard of anyone taking Suboxone who wasn't addicted or dependent on pain meds.

I am sorry that the suboxone fizzled out for you. I tend to have a high tolerance for pain meds too. So I take the least that I can get by with, without too much discomfort. That way they will help when I really need them. But this is a hard thing to do, as you want to relieve the pain when it is there. But I do have a high pain tolerance so that helps. I can handle quite a bit of it. Or so it seems. I really hope tht you can get back on your pain meds soon. I hate to see anybody suffer.

I hope that you are having a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

Sassy, I hope the meds help soon. Where is your worst pain??? There might be other ways to help it before the meds work.
 
luv and hugs
