I could not, with an open heart, recommend a maintenance drug except in extreme conditions and I don't think that is what you have. If you think it is bad now, you ain't seen nothing yet. Getting off of Methadone or Suboxone will be worse than what you are experiencing now.
I too live with chronic pain and I DO know how hard it can be some days, most days actually. Have you spoke with your doctor? Asked about alternative therapy?
IBK is right .Alot of us suffer from chronic pain issues and we have had to find other way to handle our pain without the help of opiates .I would look into ulternative therapy .stay strong ..
Please heavily research the Methadone/ Suboxone, before you enter a clinic. I made the mistake of tapering on Methadone and even though it was only a 21 day taper.. I notice the difference between that and quitting CT. I wish I would of CT instead. Its seems the Methadone hangs on longer and is harder to come off of. I wish you much luck and hope that you can get clean and find some sort of support. Kim
I would not recommend methadone or suboxone - as both are strong opioids that are highly addictive and produce more severe withdrawals than regular opiates.
Best of luck to you - Please research these medications further and do check on some alternative/homeopathic therapy...
I would find a pain doctor that works in pain management and addiction. I went through 5 surgeries and have struggled with addiction. If you can find a good doctor they can form a plan that will work best for you.
