I can't understand the VA's reasoning for opiate withdrawal treatment at Menlo Park VA in CA. With a 7 month, 2 gram a day habit of tar heroin, why they think that in 3 days, bupronex injections of 24 total over 3 days would treat withdrawals. The first day was 3 mg, second was 2 mg, and the last (third) day was 1 mg. So that's one injection every 8 hours in 3 days or 24 injections and from starting at 3 mg to 1 mg in 3 days is utterly absurd. Do you know of any other's who have had this VA treatment because it's been a month now and no Bup in 27 days and I'm still experiencing withdrawals. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I still can't sleep, experience chills, cramping, and my head is still in a fog. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I don't know how much longer I can endure this hell and the only thing that helps for a litle while is going to 12-step meetings daily. Thanks for your time.
