As a suboxone user, it's been a godsend for me. I fired my last pain specialist after he changed my narcotics prescript
ion from methadone 60mg to kadian 60mg and that sent me into huge withdrawals and when I told him what happened he told me oh well and if it's that bad then go to the ER. So I gave up and theres absoutly no other pain specialist that takes my insurance or will except cash or was taking new patients (there's only 4 pain spicialist within 50miles). So I found a suboxone doctor, the nearest one was and hour and half drive) but was so worth it. it is very expensive, $150 deposit just for an appointment, nonrefundable, And $250 for the first appointment. then $126 there after for the monthly visits. Which you go a week after the first appoitment and 3 weeks later and then monthly, atleast thats how most sub doctor's work. But the price of the subs are outrageous, about
$6.30 for each 8mg tablet. And not to forget the taste, it tastes like an orange peel to me, very very bitter. But it has help me sooo much with pain, way more then oxys and fentanyl and morphine and methadone ever did for me. And the great thing about
it is the half life, you can skip a day or 2 before withdrawals kick in, even on methadone I would feel it wearing off after 8 hours and have to wait an hour or so for the pain releif to start after my next dose. With these there is absoutly no ups and downs, I can even skip a dose or 2 and still feel great. I'm still fighting with my insurance to pay for the subs, but they will soon hopefully. but I guess some people have bad expeiences with this medication but I feel great, I highly recommend it. And I know they're in the processes of fda approving a form of the bupernorphine (the main ingredent in suboxone) for pain releif in a patch form and I think also maybe a pill form too, I know it's approved in other countries. If you have any other questions about
suboxone feel free to ask and Iwill answer the best I can.
