I owe it to readers to make it clear that I do not endorse any product sold for the expressed purpose of reducing opioid withdrawal. I have PPC ads on the site, but I have no control over the ads that run in them. I am not saying that the products that often appear in ads do NOT work– only that I have not prescribed or advised people to use them, and know of no peer-reviewed studies showing them to be effective or ineffective.
As always, caveat emptor.

I’ve been in this Suboxone trap for years. I don’t have insurance and I can’t get off it. This is worst than being addicted to the pills. I wish I never took this crap, now I’m fatigued all the time and I’m moody. half the time I think there’s only one way to get off the stuff. good luck to any of you that have been on this crap as long as I have.

    I think most people would disagree with the comment that ‘this is worst than being addicted to the pills.’ I suspect you have a short memory about what THAT world was like. At any rate, you certainly are no WORSE off now than you were then; if the smart decision back then was to stop opioids completely, they just stop NOW. We know that the withdrawal from agonists is worse than coming off Suboxone– and I know that is true as well, as I’ve seen hundreds of people do both. You got trapped by opioids– and if you think Suboxone was a wrong decision, why not just go back to the world you left? There are still plenty of pills out there!
    Instead of resenting and blaming Suboxone, just go back to where you were, if you really think you were better off– or just stop the Suboxone. It delayed the withdrawal you ‘earned’ from using– but it didn’t add to it!
