CLARIFICATION.....gabapentin is not considered an addictive medication by most experts.  It can be abused; it can also aid some people in narcotic w/drawals.  Please don't panic.....many people take it for medical issues and are pleased with their results.  I just was at a place in my life that I wanted to be off ALL drugs that affected my neuro pain pathways and gaba receptors so I could re-evaluate my OWN pain/nerve damage.

Sorry if my post misled you.....I was having LOTS of side effects, negative ones....and it was my personal choice to wean slowly off of it to get a clear and accurate picture of my pain levels, see how much of my nerve damage was permanent and re-evaluate nerve pain.

Hope that helped~

hello my sweet friend Connie,  I am too a nerve pain suffer on top of bone pain and yes i know it does $uck!!!  But to be completely honest no opiates helped my nerve pain, i was on the highest dosage of gabapententin and didn't  receive anything pleasurable from it, actually it effected my eyesight big time, i couldn't see crap taking that.  My nerve pain subsided a bit and i think i just learned how to deal with it.   I agree with you as to see and evualate  how you feel taking NOTHING, and thats where i am at currently.  I am taking nothing i actually CT the AD med Zolfolt just to see where i am at with NOTHING!  And i am happy that i am not taking meds but i sure miss the opiates, and i sure miss being pain free but i know that is not my reality anymore, so i need to learn a new way.  Today i can honestly say i am 35 days clean for the 100th time but i am NOT giving up.....

3197167_tn?1348972206

I sure miss being pain free, too, but taking opiates for pain isn't my reality anymore either.

so being on suboxone prescribed by a Doctor means I'm not clean?? I stopped illegal drugs on 4-13-01. I was on methadone until I started taking subutex for almost 4 yrs. My new Doctor prescribed me suboxone (not subutex) yesterday and I picked it up today. Its under my tongue now and so far so good it tastes better like orange flavor. My Doctor said he's gonna put me on the film version next month. I sure hope I'll be ok (no bad side effects) the good news is Lost in Space is on! lol. I like this site;been on it almost all day!! I saw a post from somebody that broke down and went to the ER for NORCO and nobody had replied so I did even tho I don't know what that drug is. I feel sorry for her!

Day 12 and also my first test. My sister got out of an overnight stay at the hospital and ask if I wanted a few Norco 10's. I said NO and never ask again! She said she forgot I quit, but was very proud of me. I am too!! We all should be proud of ourselves!!

Hey Stephanie......someone asked the same question you did when Tomskat posted Roll Call in February.  Roll Call is for EVERYONE to post their clean time off their DOC (drug of choice).  So post away, girl!!!

And, Tomskat.....you forgot to post yours  LOL

516 days. Stoked that I only have one more month til I get my long coveted 18 month coin.... Geez, I don't know how they expect us to go 6 months without getting a coin! Lol. Congratulations to everyone here, whether you are on day one or a thousand, etc. We can recover, you just have to want it. It is hard, but worth it. Those awful days of withdrawal are worth your freedom, and I am grateful that mine were so bad, because I remember it everyday, and it is one of my strongest tools in recovery. Thank you to everyone of you for keeping me clean and sober. I read posts here most days, and comment when I can (small children who are always in some kind of dire need of mom, lol), and all the posts are helpful to me. I am reminded of things I need to be doing, and where I never want to be again. You all center me, if that makes sense. So thank you. And keep on keeping on, folks!

Hey Stephanie, clean dates are a personal matter. I realized how high subs made me after I quit them. I thought I felt normal, but honestly had forgotten what normal is. Six months after my last sub dose, I really noticed how different I was feeling. I mostly count my last methadone dose, but anyone who has come off subs usually start counting sub detox. The important thing is, are you working on your recovery, we can relate to each other, but we all walk this path our own way.
