I found that taking a lower dose stopped the headaches. 8mg (which I believe is the general amount most heroin
addicts recieve) is a hell of a lot of what is a very strong drug
. If you try a smaller dose or cut your tablets in half and try that first. Otherwise, I found Ibuprofen helped alot if it was simply a general headache (which like non opiate
addicts you will start to get again)
It's funny, I remember a person who was on 8mg of subbies and she had a tooth ache. Now, most people would go to the dentist and take some anadin extra or a couple of asprin but not this person. She decided she needed heroin to get rid of the pain (how ridiculous that is was lost on her, only an addict
would think this reasonable behavior)
In the end, 3 months of doing really well on maintenance with plans to start reducing was completely wasted and within a week she was back on her £100 per day habit.
