A Person Doesn’t Like Taking Suboxone

I found this old post from ten years ago that I never got around to publishing it. A person doesn’t like taking Suboxone and blames the drug for the lack of change in his life. It plays into the discussion about methadone because it shows the attitudes that can develop Read more…

No Zone No Longer

Got rid of ‘zone’. Too confusing with the new URL. Please be aware, because up until now typing in suboxonetalkzone.com would get you here. In short, a ‘suboxone hater’ labelled me as a ‘spam site’ with Google in 2015, and my searches went way down. I am going to disconnect Read more…

The Internet…Now I Remember!

I’ve mentioned that I’m getting better, and it is amazing how the body heals. We take it for granted that if you sew two edges of skin together or splint a broken bone, the surfaces will usually connect and create an even stronger scar or bone than before. THAT is Read more…

Kroger Plays Doctor

I haven’t written here for a long time. I’m reminded of an old joke my dad would tell (over and over!) about the mom who took her kid to the doctor over and over because he wouldn’t talk. Finally, on his 15th birthday, he yelled out “I hate angelfood cake!” Read more…

Ending Constipation from Suboxone and Buprenorphine

Constipation is one of the few potential side effects caused by buprenorphine medications, including Suboxone Film and Zubsolv. Fortunately, ‘binding up’ can be managed by making minor changes to your lifestyle. Constipation from buprenorphine is caused by activation of mu opioid receptors in the small and large intestine, reducing the Read more…

Suboxone Forum Upgrade, Best Discussions

Regular readers know that I’m a psychiatrist and addiction doc – not a computer guy. When I started writing about Suboxone and buprenorphine twelve years ago, there were few other people writing about the medication. Of course heroin addiction was just taking off, and fentanyl was confined to operating rooms. Read more…

Scapegoat Season – Another Doc Goes Down

Looks like another doc is going down in Virginia. Dr. Smithers is looking at 20 yrs and possibly life in prison after being convicted of ‘illegally prescribing pain medication’. This isn’t the first doctor going to prison in Virginia, nor will it be the last. Dr. Scranage was sent off Read more…

New Design: Please Comment.

I have had a number of requests to lose the ‘shooting’ picture, so I tried out some new designs today and liked this one. I wanted something simple and ‘to the point’. Please post feedback in the comments section; as I have mentioned, I don’t have much of an eye Read more…

Farewell, Paris

I am hitting the road today, homeward bound!  No offense to Paris, but it will be so nice to get back…  I have a new appreciation for anyone who doesn’t speak the language of the area, and for those who suffer subtle snobbery in any environment.  For example standing in Read more…

Special Price for Informational Download

Special Price I have been selling a recording over on the right side of this web page–  the recording describes the treatment options for opiate addiction and the philosophy behind Suboxone treatment.  I recommend it for anybody taking Suboxone, considering Suboxone, or even for anyone who has a family member Read more…
