suboxone treatment
I was addicted to painkillers for about 10 years. By 2009 i needed at least 10 - 80mg oxycontins daily. I thought about quitting the habit every single day and even felt confident i could quit IF i just had enough of a supply so i could ween off. That was impossible mostly because when i was properly dosed and feeling 'good' it was easy to deny the urgency of the problem and i fell into 'tomorrow i will start to ween'.
I finally got myself arrested (subconsciously i probably did it on purpose in hindsight) and was forced to quit.
Towards the end of 2009 i explained my situation to my family doc and he agreed to give me methadone tablets (40mg/day) until i could find a Suboxone doctor. I started Suboxone in February of 2010. I was on withdrawal from the methadone for only a day when i took the first 8mg tablet of Sub under my tongue. It was nothing like any drug i had ever done to get high because the only thing i noticed was the subtle disappearance of the withdrawal symptoms in about 30 minutes. No more yawning, my running nose dried up and i felt normal. Feeling normal was not familiar to me because i had not been off painkillers without withdrawal symptoms for almost a decade. It took some getting used to but i soon made friends with this new 'normal' feeling and have been that way ever since. I have not cheated but i have tried to ween off the suboxone with no success. Until a few months ago i had been taking the brand name tablets under my tongue 8/2mg twice a day. But the brand name tablets are not made any longer so i switched to the generic but there is a definite difference in strength and duration. The brand name tabs lasted so long i could skip almost 2 days with very little change. With the generics i begin to feel my nose running and the yawning start before 24 hours is up. I am still determined to quit but suffering some sort of withdrawal seems to be inevitable.
I also tried the film but i don't like it because it has a harsh aftertaste.

The best way to combat the aftertaste of the film is to drink a regular RedBull. It will take the nasty aftertaste away and leave the RedBull taste remaining. With that being said, the combination of subs and RedBull make an interesting feeling that you can become addicted to. You have to wait until it fully resolves first before you start drinking. Good luck with your recovery abs sobriety.
