anyway i was gunna take suboxone and i was wondering wat dose i should start? my plan is to taper with it .
should i taper off the oxys more before i start the suboxone, ????
I have a friend who was doing anywhere between 3 to 4 ...80mg Oxys a day. He went to a Doctor and got on Suboxone. After three weeks he said he felt normal again. Of course, everyone is different, but he told me he was impressed how he didn't have the withdrawals and how good suboxone worked! Good luck! You can do it!
After you left me a private message, I ask you to repost here so people could repsond to your questions or perhaps help you thru a taper w/d process, I have seen it a bazillion times on this site, so not too sure why the responce or the lack there of, is what it is......
I am only the mom of an oxy addict in recovery, I am so sorry I dont have any first hand experience to share with you,,,,, You obviously want to quit this horrid exentence you are now living.... and good for you that you went thru the detox and made it 9 day, not a lot of people can say that.... And you are wanting to try again. I hope you are getting your suboxone from a doctor and not the streets. The doc will help you with regulating the meds if he or she doesnt do so to your satisfaction, get another doc.
You want to go in rehab, keep checking for one that will accept and take on all the needs you have....
I can tell you that for my daughter, a taper from oxy didn't help one iota.... nada.. perhaps someone on this site can share their experience and give you some advise in that regards.
I hope today was a better day for you, and that you keep posting, and can gain some support to help you thru this time. Please msg me any time I am just a keystroke away..........
sounds like u could switch over when u r in wds..ask ur doctor when u go for the sub visit....some have to wait only 12 hours..depends on the dr and the dose/and the doc...never heard of smokin oxy..swear u learn things on here sometimes that are not good..guess i gotta go roll some oxies now!
be safe and keep posting this forum s great place 4 u to be right now
I truly hope you dont "roll or rail any oxy now" it kills people looking for that better high every day. sorry if I dont get the humor i almost lost my daughter to this epidemic that sadly all of her generation knows exactactly how to use for the maximum high. it truly breaks my heart and I guess one of those life experiences you dont get or can comprehend unless you have been there........
