I am post sub a year and two months and I dont have craving for vikes ever but still have cravings for the sub.
What is it about the Sub that you think you still crave? The energy lift ? A high? I'm starting my Sub taper and am curious about this.
Just wanted to let you know i am thinking about you and hope the tapering is going good for you flmagi............Hows the compound?? sara
Just wanted to let u know I am pulling for u 2 flmagi...
Thanks guys! I dropped from 8 mgs to 4 mgs about 6-7 days ago and so far I'm fine. A little tired. Gonna try dropping another 2 mgs in about a week, then it'll probably have to go a little slower. But I really want off this stuff. The Sub is messing with my teeth, my arms & hands, besides my personality.Hoping a lot of this stuff is reversible.
The compound is coming along. The last big thing to do is tile the kitchen floor, then the rest is all minor stuff (but a lot of minor stuff). We need to post some more pictures. Everyone has finally moved in and it can get a little testy around here getting use to living with each other (and 7 dogs!!!!!).
I was on a low dose. Never took more than 2 mgs. I know alot of people say sub does not get you high but it always made me high. Better than vikes ever did. And it deffinetly gave me energy. I have relapsed once with it because of the energy thing. But am vary glad I am clean now. I feel you on it messing with your arms and hand my hands would fall asleep all the time especially at night. I had a really hard time with muscle weakness. Good luck on your taper.
I was on suboxone for 8 months, starting at 8mg. Last week i was put on 1mg a day and had had enough. Five days ago I took my last dose and had no withdrawl symptoms until 3 days in. My legs are restless as are my arms and I feel drained. The cravings did not start until last night, but I crave my drug of choice not the sub. I would say it is mostly a mind game, since when i was on the sub i knew i could not get high and now that i have detoxed i know that i can run back to heroin. During the detox I would make sure you go to NA meetings and surround yourself with clean friends. Also, you are doing the right thing by getting off it now, i wish i would have not stayed on it for 8months but it was doctors orders. Goodluck, praying for you.
