Hi everyone.....I was here a few weeks ago, physcing and getting ready to switch to the sub. every attempt failed for some reason preventing me from starting....then I heard from a few here, and ohter places too that if I as using the suboxone to get off the mscontin 200mg/day and I wanted to be opiate free, I should get off the sub by 6 weeks or the longer you are on it the harder it becomes to get off.......that made me reconsider the timing as I want off everything and I was using the sub as a transition drug, but my life right now is so hectic with tryiong ot selll my house, a large country property, keeping the gardens nice, and house clean to show well, and then if sold I would have t look for a new place and move, that this was not the time to switch....my Dr. is a doubing man re I would be okay with pain issues...I don't really think I have pain issues any longer...I did at one time and really needed the morphine, but those are gone....I'm confussed a bit...not confussed so much as will the sub help with pain, (he says NO, he says it helps with addciaton only), and he says the time thing is just online chatter and I shouldn't listen....he was quite annoyed iwthme...He has just been prescribing a few months, as just available in Canada, and only has 6 patients on it...but feels he is hte expert.....I don't believe that, he may have theory but it is you guys who have lived it....I learned the very hard way not to trust everything the Dr. says....he shouild have gottenme off the morphine years ago...I feel like I'm at a point I have to reclaim my life soon or either give into the fact I will be on it for the rest of my life....I went through so many scares with my meds, that I ahve become compulsive obessive over having everything in order....I've been left to hang out to dry so to speak too many times and since live alone, I don't have anyoneto help me...living in the country isolated from any real fast help also is a challenge or adds to my need to know exacatly what is what.
SO AGAIN IS IT HARDER TO GET OFF THE SUBOXONE AFTER 6 WEEKS...... can anyone point me to a site that can confirm this medically....so I can take it to him and say see.....look youi are not an expert.......DOES THE SUBOXONE HELP AT ALL WITH PAIN? he says no.....he says it is only good in getting people off a destructive drug lifestyle...., the lesser of two evils....
I think I told you all I'm a Christian, and I posted a while back about a "Healing Revival in Lakeland Florida" a month ago...gee i got blasted by a few for posting that...and it bleeped out the website people could watch it live...but I was so desperate, and I felt so weak that can't do this all on my own that I booked a flight to Tampa, rentd a car and booked a hotel.....for a week leaving monday....I belive in miracles, and I'm expecting one in Lakeland...people have been instantly set free, so if they have I can too.....listen guys you need faith for this to work.....the revivalist, or young man who was preaching in Lakeland 3 mnth ago, and they started to notice people getting healed from al sorts of stuff, real ntable miracles, was an ex addict himself......he said he was struck with Power of God one night 12 years ago in his drug dealers trailer and set free on the spot and never had any desire, no w/d symtoms and has been clean since....He is young Canadian man, who's minstsry I have watched grow for the past 5 years, (I've followed what has happened with him, and is he th ereal deal or not) and I believe in him.....I find Dr.s so limiting....so discouraging...and htey use you like guinea pigs....and can abandon you, or not are if you are stuck sick because of a mistake they made....
Anyway got off the topic....but i would greatly appreciate any clear guidance of Suboxone addication...how long yoiu have to get off it easily versus it then becoming tough......and the pain control it gives..
Thanks to all who have written to me, all your messages are so geatly appreciated.....and this is a battle of which noone can understand unless they have lived through it.....I'll let you know my news of Lakeland when I return...the 28th leaving here the 21st.
best to all
