Hi there, i am posting this is because i want to say that yesterday was my first day taking suboxone 8mg but before that i was hooked on perks, i was taking between 50 to 60 perks 20mg a day. I had to taper off the perks, it took me a while to taper until the day the rehab center and my doctor told me to stop taking the perks for 24hrs, i did, my god the pain and the hell i was going thru, the day after i was meeting my doctor at the clinic to start the process in staring the Suboxone, when i woke up that day i was thinking that i was not going to make it, with the help of one of my trusted employees he helped me that morning, he knew what was going on, he picked me up at home and we went to work, i sucked it up and had to wait till 10am till my appointment, i got to my office at 5am, just imagine the time was not going by, well the time came went to the clinic and the first thing the doctor told me if i took any perks, i told him the truth. he took my urine sample and after that we had to go to the pharmacy to pick up the suboxone, they gave me 4 2mg of them, first i started off with 2 of the 2mg, i tell you the taste is really bad, after 1/2 hour he gave me the 3rd 2mg, i was feeling still agitated and restless, i was sweating and my blood pressure was high, then he gave me the 4th pill, well, as soon as i had the 4th one i had to go to the bathroom, after that came back in the room and i was feeling good, we spoke and we left off that i was OK to go home and go pick up the prescription of meds and they are: teva clonidine, apo-ibuprofen and teva-trazodone. I went back to work, still feeling good and i will be honest that while my friend was driving i started to get high, called the doctor and told him about it and he said it is normal. Got to the office did my thing. locked up and i got driven home, once i got home i made myself dinner and then went strait to the couch at this time around 9pm i was feeling tires and my legs were starting to feel lazy, took the meds he gave me for it and then i was gone, i passed out and woke up my regular time at 4:30am, got picked up and i was feeling tired and weak from the meds he gave me. So, like a trooper i sucked it up until i went to pick up my 8mg pill of suboxone, went to the clinic so they can witness me taking the pill and let me go back to work. Everybody, i tell you this works if you put your mind to it, i do not have the craving in having a perk, did not have it all yesterday nor do i want it today or now, the Suboxone does work, let me correct myself, it has been working for me so far, remember i was taking 50 plus perks per day.
