FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: SUBOXONE

User Comments:

For Opiate Dependence “I have been taking Suboxone for 10 years as the alternative to an opiate addiction. I do not abuse the RX, and I have cut myself down to one half per day with the help of my doctor and supportive love around me. My personal opinion of Suboxone is that it can be hard for some patients to control themselves, take the correct dosage, or even not go back to opiates. Who knows my future, I am the only one who can control me…we all have to be strong, we have the tools in front of us to help us if we so choose. Pain meds are handed out to easily by these pushy little docs..it’s all a game..all for the mighty dollar! Let’s prove them all wrong! Stay strong friends!”

For Opiate Dependence “The medication works good but the side effects are more intense in some people.”

For Opiate Dependence “Montana has a shortage of suboxone doctors. There is an internet list for this state but I found out this list is old and the doctors listed are retired, one is dead, and the others moved away. There is a telemedicine clinic which accepts medicaid. This states medicaid expansion is being cut back in increments. My insurance requires a face to face provider which another branch of the chain clinic features. I know another patient who has a mainline health plan but when the medicaid reimbursement funds dry up the clinic will close. It’s doubtful they will stay open for 2 patients.”

For Opiate Dependence “I started my opiate dependence like many others; Pain killers. I was taking 300mg of Percoset a day. It got expensive, then came heroin, never with needles. After my husband died of an overdose, I didn’t even recognize the person that I was. Addicted for 10 years. So, I went to detox, and rehab. At detox I was put on 32mg of Suboxone. I now take 16mgs a day and have been clean for almost 9 months. Suboxone is a life saver. No cravings, no more obsession, no more living like a maniac. Suboxone has erased my depression completely.”

For Opiate Dependence “After two years and slow taper. After Christmas the 26 I ran out of the last little piece. That night the sweats/chills hit. Never slept all night for 15 days of RLS was the worst. Still not normal. The stuff worked wonders until its gone and out. Never again taking this the wd’s aren’t worth it.”

For Opiate Dependence “Suboxone helped remove the shame of opioid dependence. I learned it’s not a character defect to become dependent on a prescription. Its chemistry. Stopping the Opana ER (hydromorphone) didn’t remove the pain from joint replacement. Became dependent on OPANA ER, which was removed from the market by FDA request (too addicting). Suboxone was a huge success. It also helps treat residual pain from joint replacement. If I ever choose to stop it, there is a procedure for reducing mg slowly. Although it causes dependency, the method of slow tapering can be pain free compared to withdrawal from most common opioids.”
