Addiction & Recovery Message Board


Addiction & Recovery Board Index


Hi, I am not sure if i am doing this correct, I have never used a message board before,so if i am doing it wrong- please let me know. I have a couple of questions rather than a response...
I am going to see a doctor tomorrow and about to start the suboxone treatement. I have been on norco (extra, extra strength vicodin) for about 2 years and other pain killers an additional 2 years before that. I have chronic fatigue syndrome and use vicodin for not only the pain but for energy. I have gone up to taking between 12-15 pills a day and want to stop, but i am very afraid of withdrawals. I took methodone (using someone else's perscription) for a period of 2 months trying to get off the vicoding and not knowing exactly what they were and then went off the pills cold turkey. Because i did not have any more pills, i ended up putting myself in rehab becuase of the severe withdrawals (i was taking 1 tablet a day- 40mg?). It was without a doubt the worst experience of my life. I went through severe withdrawals for at least 2-3 weeks. However, i did return to the vicodin thinking i would never get addictied again- what a joke, and started using more because of my tolerance level. I do not want to live my life addicted to pain killers so have decided to do the suboxone treatment...my question is that i wanted to ask those of you who have used suboxone or are currently taking it- if it helped you and did you experience any withdrawals from the optiates. also, does anyone know if suboxone is addictive or difficult to stop taking and how long do you have to take it??? Sorry for the long message, but i am really nervous about tomorrow...
can anyone give me any advice??? PryncessBee
