Hey there Lisepeterson, (did I get that correct?)
Welcome home! My name is Beth & I have been taking Suboxone for my oxycontin addiction since last May. (2008) Are you already on Suboxone or Methadone? Or are you thinking of starting it? Either way, there are so many special members here on this forum that are doing it & doing it well. I wish that I knew more about you to be able to speak to you more specifically, but I am in hopes that you will reach out & let us hear how you are doing. I really hope to get to know you better.
Have you read any of the other posts coming in from members? I really do hope that you'll read through here a bit, but then I hope you can begin to share about yourself. It really does get easier & easier the more time that your here. I really just saw that we had a new member & wanted to reach out to you to personally let you know how glad I am that you have made it here! I really look forward to hearing more about you.
Please keep in touch!
Yours in Recovery,
Beth I love you

Hi ladies,thanks for making me so welcome.I have been on suboxone for almost a year.It has been good,but I want to get off it.It is expensive!I have been on patient assistance program which has given me 90 tabs a month free for 1 year.The year is almost up,and I have taken much more than 90 a month,so it has been expensive paying cash when I run out.I ran out once over the weekend,and starting going thru withdrawls.It totally freaked me out.I am not happy about this.I really want to get off this drug.I tlk to my doctor next week.I am trying to taper down to 3 a day.I had a tendency to take too many,but was pretty good about sticking to 4 a day.

Hi Lise,
Do you have a counselor that you see on a regular basis? I am concerned that you seem to need more than your usual dose of Suboxone.
I know that everyone is different, but still I am concerned about you.
Are you having cravings while on suboxone? There are some factors that may figure into your needing more Suboxone.
Are you currently taking an medications that would interfere with your Suboxone?
You said that you want off of the Suboxone, do you want to get down to a manageable dose or are you wanting to stop it all together?
I'd like to hear your thoughts if you don't mind.
Yours in Recovery,
Dee

I was having alot of physical pain and the increased doses were helping.Now my pain is under control,and when I experienced a bit of withdrawl from suboxone one weekend,it really freaked me out.That is why I want to get off it.I have spent almost 3000.00$ out of pocket since last Oct.That is WITH the patient assistance.I dont have cravings,only when I start feeling withdrawls.I get nervous when I have only a few pills left.(typical).I have alot of cellular memory I am sure from when I was addicted to pills and heroin.Anyway,the directions on the rx said you can take more thn one dose at a time,so I always took 2 at a time.I should only be at 2 a day,my doctor thinks I take 4 a day.Today,and this week I will take 3 day.I have been really depressed lately though,so I might need an antideppressant.I started back on Trazadone at nite,for a couple weeks ,but it hasnt helped much.My patient assistant program is done in 2 months.I cant afford this drug!!My friends have noticed very positive change in me in the last year,before the recent depression that has started.
