I am new to this board here and I would like to avoid being scolded for posting in the wrong place, but I am stuck in a bad place between the 2. I am a herion/drug/alcohol addict that had 16 years of clean time, due to a series of injuries/surgeries and cronic pain over the last 2 years I have relapsed starting with a beer with meds, then not taking meds as directed. Yesterday it all came to a head with my brain losing all common sense and being out of pain meds I turned to the streets and bought some Norco, after eating about 13 of these I was ready to score some dope or oxy. Somehow I got thru the day with just the Norco, today its gone and tomorrow I will have to visit the doctor to tell them of my ordeal. At this point my back is the source of my pain, I am/was on about 10 percocet a day and for the last month I weened myself off of 50mg of morphine a day to 0, then went to 25 mg phen patch which went up to 50mg patch for the last 3 weeks, on Friday I just tore the patch off an forgot about it, by Sat I was insane with cravings, pain and stupidity, the kind that tells you 1 good dose and you can quit/stop. I have lost a lot of friends due to that "one last fix" syndrome, so I would have to say I am lucky to be typing on this computer right now....... The only thing I can do right now is wait for 24 hours tell the doc what is going on and see what their idea is cause I am retarded at this point and will have to trust them to get me through this. I have never stopped using drugs before except by force(prison) so I hope to not go down that road, I am just venting at this point and I would like to get advice without the scolding that I posted in wrong forum, thanks.
sopm,
question for you.....do you really feel the effects of the norco while still taking suboxone or since you've just been off the sub since Friday? Suboxone has a REALLY long half life, something like 37.5 hours for every 2 or 4mg? I forgot what the actual equation is, someone else around here may know. I'd be surprised if you could actually feel any of the percocet since you still likely have quite a dose of suboxone in your body. You were on 12mg a day right or was it 6mg?
Anyway, I'm really sorry you're in such pain. It seems like you are just desperately trying anything you can to get out of the pain which is comepletely understandable but also scary. I don't want to see you get so desperate you just take whatever and lots of it to get rid of the pain....talk to your doc and if you don't like the advice you get, find another doc!

thinking of you and wishing you well,
KEW
