This is a terrible way to get off of heroin
. 2-8mg strips, are you crazy justanotherguy80 or just like.... never mind. If you are an addict
treatment might be for you? A little back story about me:
I was prescribed Vicodin a many years back and took one and vomited after an hour. I had my wisdom teeth removed and even though it hurt, I hurt worse to vomit nonstop. I through the pills down the toilet (many are getting skeptical of my honesty right now, but if you knew my bio: I've been a lab rat for terrible medications for a neurological condition ever since the third grade). I was in my mid-twenties when I felt a pop and fell to the ground. I had never experienced that level of pain in my life, or painkillers for that matter, and my grandmother took me to the ER. They started out with Morphine
, but was about to vomit until they added some anti-nausea medicine, and even the morphine was no match for my pain (I cried in pain, hadn't since 5 years old). They gave me hydromorphone
with the nausea medicine and I felt hope. I did not like the 'euphoric feeling' to me, it was dis-euphoric (I know their are skeptics now). They sent me home with Percecet 10mg and I got over the nausea fairly quickly. I had severe spinal stenosis and L5-S1 herniation that needed surgery. It never happened! I had all the cortisone shots and my yearly limit of epidurals. I needed help!
I was in crippling pain 6 or so years ago. I could not move and had to be in a bed pan for a few months until I could get something stronger than the painkillers I was on. I could not pay for the surgery and my neurologist took my HMO medicaid. He was about the only one in around 120miles. He maintained my pain until I was cut off when he moved away. His practiced joined an Alliance (I assume he did not want to have options limited for his patients) and the new policy was no opiate
painkillers. I was sick (what I know now is dope sick) and was desperate to find help. After 3 ER visits and no option of painkillers, the ER Dr. said that they knew of a place that prescribed Suboxone for pain. I lucked out (I'm not so sure Now!) they would except me the next day. I was lucky that month and I was just awarded SSD(Social Security Disability) and had money coming in which I payed for this new Suboxone ( It was a fortune the first month,I think it's cheaper now justanotherguy80 for the induction period I don't want to scare you off of what might save you life)! If you have insurance, many doctors have the training to prescribe Suboxone!
Years passed and was maintained on Subutex
. After many years I got to know Doc
. He was the director of his holistic practice (I know now he sold out to make millions from kickbacks from Reckitt Benckiser, Slough,UK, US). At the time he was giving me injections in my shoulders, knees, and lower back. All injections were chemicals the body naturally produces. He let me know that he was giving me 400$ knee injections for free, and that he would figure a way to get my Medicare to cover some of the costs. The same went for the shoulders, although I had to pay a few hundred dollars for the back injections. He no longer charged me for the Subutex (saved me $, because I felt I was being treated for my well round pain management and reduction 'He said I was a good person.' Then, six or so months ago the pop was felt in my back and I fell just like before. Only this time, I was living with my wonderful girlfriend, who I'm afraid she doesn't see a end game (I'm afraid I'm beginning to lose hope myself), and she has 50/50 custody of her three children (whom I love) with her ex-husband. It has been ever since mid-April when they removed another very large herniation, and am dealing with the reality of degenerative disc disease. The surgery was successful, I hope. Buprenorphine
drugs: Subutex,Suboxone, and Butran is not good for long term pain management. Please read the attachments for further expertise on the use of Bupe. therapy. It no longer helps at all for me anymore. Ever since the Ketamine
drip? Anyway, these attachments are as up to date and as accurate as I can find. Sorry about posting my situation all over DM. This will be the last. Unless something new comes along. Read on:
