Don't just go to anyone though.  Do some research.  You want a doctor who is actually going to treat your addiction problem, not just someone who charges you an arm and a leg to give you a script.  Look for someone who may be a psychiatrist, and if they are associated with a university hospital, chances are you will find a good one.

I don't know if I sounded a little rude by starting off my last sentence with "So", but if I did, I apologize...

Seriously, DONT  go on suboxone if u are tkaing 1-2 norcos a day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No no no no no no no.

either do it cold turkey (which, i think u could handle)  OR  taper off the norcos.  

Suboxone is super strong.  LOTS of people will tell u the wd from sub are horrible (i dont know tho about that...never witnessed it)......regardless tho, why chance having to go thru horrible withdrawls over a 2 pill day (at max) addiction???

remember too...and i keep telling my bf this but i dont think he gets it....and please NOBODY take offense to this.........

ok, define "feeling normal" .....

someone who is taking pain pills everyday for however long has been basically MASKING what NORMAL feels like.

like it is NORMAL to wake up somedays and just feel like garbage....your head hurts, ur body hurts, ur back hurts, ur head hurts, u feel depressed , u hate life, ur stressed out, etc etc etc.  THAT IS LIFE in general!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Hell, i wake up and feel like that sometimes. Our bodies are going to feel like sh!t sometimes! Our minds will too. Stress and life's ways will get us down.  U may feel like that alot. i bite the bullet, go to work and move on. im sure my life would be easier to get thru if i had something like a pill i could take to help me feel better.....but, in the end...it's all still there.  let me say it like this:

Let's say u have a dog.
The dog goes and poops in the living room.
It obviously smells bad and it is gross and it needs cleaned up, right?
But, u just go in there and throw some paper towel over it.  U may even spray some febreeze and light a candle.
Temporarilty, it's fixed!  Awesome!  
But, in time, the febreeze will wear off, the candle will burn out...and guess what......the poop is still there...............now, it starts to become gross again!
You have to CLEAN UP THE POOP to permanently take care of the situation.

Kinda the same thing here................if u are not feeling normal, then maybe u have some things going on that u need to take care of and CLEAN UP.  

My bf always talks about feeling like ****, etc an dim like well jay maybe that's just normal and life in general. god, i feel bad sometimes too and it isnt withdrawl or it isnt from being an addict...it's life.

u gotta do what u feel is best.  but, i dont think sub is for u (and, believe me...im a big sub believer)  but, not in this case.

I really don't. I would cut back a half a pill a week until you are all the way off of them .I honestly hope that a doctor would not give you sub for the amount you are taking he would be doing you a great disservice .You can do this we can help you threw but plz don't take sub for 2 pills a day .

Thank you everyone. To: Lovemypillhead... I really appreciate you taking time to explain all of that to me. It's like I already know it, but it's good to hear someone else say. Also... the analogy was good :)

I will try to do the taper and I will keep you all informed. Thanks again.
