Hi there, and congrats on wanting to take control of your life. Just wanted to let you know I successfully used suboxone to get off a pretty high oxycodone addiction. I only took the sub for 21 days, after day one on the suboxone I started to taper off of it w/very doable withdrawl at the end. Just to let you know it can be done. Each person is different. I was extremely discaplined on it and didnt have any crazy wd. I did taper all the way down to .25 mgs before I jumped. Wishing u the best of luck and strength! :)

Get only a 7 day script!  Otherwise you risk getting hooked on Suboxone and then starting horrible withdrawals from that.  The Suboxone will get you through "some" of the opiate WD's but you will still have withdrawals once you stop the suboxone. You are risking another addiction girlnextdoor2.  I dont want to see that happen to you.  I wish there was a miracle pill to get us over the WD's but it does NOT exist.  Trust me.... I tried to find it also and so have many others.  Stay here on the forum and we can walk you through this with OTC type medication and supplements.  You can do this!   I know I am a bit "forward" but I don't want to sugar coat this for you.  You can however do this!   We are all living proof it is possible!   Keep us posted and deep breaths.

Yes I have heard you can get hooked on suboxone easy and I dont want that......my dr gave it to me like a yr ago I was on 2 scripts of tramadol of 120 each and 2 scripts of roxycodone 15mg 120 each......thats 480 pills amonth ridiculous.......but the suboxone was awesome I took it for less than a wk and was fine after that......for a while than my pain got bad again and he put me back on roxy......now i want off  but i am going to look into other ways to get pain relief without narcotics.......this has been great talking to another person that fully understands cus i have noone here to talk with.......thanks a bunch, N.M.H. best to you.

I have my pain doctor appt this coming Monday.  Perscribed 200LR and 200SR everyday.  Down to 200 total mg and getting sick if this stupid dependecy.  Same thing every month the last week before appt -this short.  I deal w chronic pain but obviously cant trust my management of the meds.  I need to get off but scared of tje withdrawal and scared to deal w the pain tje rest of my life wo pain help.  I hate this drug.  Doctors think its the golden child of pain management and it s hard for most if them to undetstand the seriousness.  What is the general attitude w opiate withdrawal -and tramadol specific - do they help w options - such a saboxene or do they just figure ur on ur own?

You don't have to fill those prescriptions.  You do have that choice.
