Benzo question.
Jul 1, 2012
Sorry its a long story, I'll try to just write the pertinent info. Heroin addiction led to 3.5 years of methadone maintence. Went to a detox center and got septic around the 7th day, the nurses kept saying it was withdrawls, but I finally had to track down the PA and had him put me on a scale, which showed 13 lbs. lost in 5 days. ER said it was a UTI. Needless to say I left the treatment center for physical and mental reasons(I felt like I was getting pushed backwards to before I got on methadone, which while I was on I completed 3 associate degree). So between the 4 days I left the treatment center and had an appt w a suboxone doctor, I started taking my klonopin again. I was on it for about a year for panic disorder which that diagnosis has now changed to PTSD. My suboxone doctor has a zero tolerance policy for benzos and I'm worried since I had only been off for 14 days and then starting taking them again I probably didn't detox off them and am worried that I'll start having withdraw from the klonopin if I stop taking them without a taper. I really want to talk to my doc about it, have an appt tomorrow, but I don't want to hurt my chances staying under his care. Any advice or personal experience with a situation similar? I'm all out of answers and perhaps my head is a little screwy as this is only my 4th day on suboxone. Oh one more thing, what is the best way to dissolve the strips? I feel like I'm drowning in my own saliva bc they say subs don't dissolve into the stomach? Any insight would be much appreciated.
