been thru it here:
here's the deal with sub. You think your problems are over because you feel like you did before you ever took a pill, but it is not. The stuff is like 150 times stronger than morphine but it has some blocking thing that prevents you from getting high.
answer(s): Thomas Recipe and Amino acid recipe at the bottom right. I was skeptical, but they work.
1) go back on vicodin for a month and withdrwawl from that. it will be easier.
2) start the vitamines now.
warm baths too. yur skin is a living organism and these will help so much.
I am 48 years old. I was clean for 13 years. I hurt my back and refused to take pain medication for 2 years, but I finally gave up and started to take Vicodines.
'Soon after I got a hold of somebody and got on Oxicontins. I was on it of and on for 2 years.
I heard about Subutex and went on it for 6 weeks and tapered to 1 mg for the last 10 days, but when I stopped I went through withdrawls really really bad.
I found the drugs from a friend and stayed on 8-16 mg a day for 6 months and went back to Oxi again.
My last trip I took the sub I tapered to 1 mg in 21 days. I need to tell you that staying off subs has been my worst experience in my life. I was a herin addict for many years and I never felt this bad and uncomfortable from staying away from any drug like the subs.
I have been clean for over 10 weeks and I am still feeling the effect of the subs.
Please educate yourself before taking this drug. I wished I knew what I know now then or I would never never take this drug to begin with.
