    I have to say that I was addicted to Vicoden and Oxycontin or any drug that I could have on a schedule to buy. After going to the proper medical facility I was introduced to Suboxone. It is the wonder drug. I have been on it for two years now. I need surgery and refuse but I do not feel it takes the pain away. I just was speaking to my doctor today and he increased me dose to 3 8mg a day. One time I was short for a week because someone had taken the medication from my purse. I went through the worse withdrawals anyone could imagine. I went to the ER twice and they rushed me to the hospital. I did not tell the doctors because I figured they would think I was lying. So when they asked me if I was on any medication I said no. They said that I was a very sick girl. I did not sleep for a week straight. I vommited and kept shoving my fingers down my throat because that gave me relief. I felt so out of it. I do not ever want to feel like that again. If anyone says that Suboxone is not addicting they are full of it. You definately have to ween off properly. I couldn’t believe in two days without taking it my legs ached so bad and vomiting etc. It was like an out of body experience. Believe me I work in the medical field and I will never do that again. I still take it and will not take my medication in a hand bag etc. I think it is a great drug but then again what is the difference? I think it was worse withdrawls than coming off of Vicoden or xanax. I do not know what the future holds but I did abuse Opiots for years so the dopamine that you normally produce has been effected. For now I will stick with it. I do not want to leave a negative effect on anyone. If you are a heroin addict or Cocaine etc. It realy does work. It worked for me. I did not do heavy duty drugs but just to wake up I would take at least 4-5 750 vicoden to start the day. Then it continued. Well I am glad those days are over and have been for two years. Good luck and I would reccomend Suboxone to anyone. I think sometimes it just might be a more legal bandaid to the problem.

    I was assulted in ’03 and almost lost my life; I had to have emergency surgery removing my Spleen and 20% of my Pancreas, along with 30 staples in my head and a face like rocky IV from the injuries . During my stay at the Hospital for four weeks, I was INTRODUCED to Morphine at first, then Oxycottin after. I was released and sent home for recovery four another four weeks, in which during the time I was to take Vicodin and Percoset. When I could safely say that I felt better, I noticed that when I woke up the first thing I wanted before breakfast was my medication and this is when the problems began. After I was given no more meds from my doc, all these medications where easaly available, so I began taking them on a regular basis. After my personal, work, and financial situation took a downturn, is when I seeked help and placed on Suboxone. I called it the miracle drug because all the cravings, withdrawals, and crappy feelings went away so I began a treatment. I’ve been on Suboxone for years now as my Doctor insists that the recovery process takes this long, as I been wanting to end this because I felt fine. I shortly was transfered by my job making it impossible to continue treatment, at the same time after taking it for some many years, I really wanted to stop. Against my Doctor’s request to seek another Doctor near me to continue treatment, I decided to play Doctor and taper down myself; I stretched my last refill for months and ended with just little chuncks of it. A week has passed by without taking any Suboxone and althrough I felt great thinking I finally beat this… I feel horrible right now! I’m being taking back to the withdrawal days and is as bad as if I’d never was on treatment! Suboxone was a great medication to bring me back to “me”, but I came to the conclusion that it is nothing than going from one addiction to another.
