That dr. Was so off base giving u suboxone. The Vicodin withdrawal may have been about 14 days and you would have recovered. Except you may have needed support not abuse pain meds again. So Sorry suboxone is a powerful med life long effects, so sorry.View Thread
I would so like to hear the rest of your story, I feel your pain. I take 2mg twice a day. I started on the 8 mg in July 09. Stayed on 8mg for first three years. I did go cold turkey to get off that does, but you need to know, it Really takes five to seven days before you get the real effects of withdrawal, this med stays in your system for a long time. That is why when you returned home the hell began for you. I stayed off for about ten days and could not handle sleeping or daily life, so I to had to call my Dr. Suboxen. But I got on the 2mg twice a day then and I'm still on it. I feel controlled by this med and afraid if I'll be ok without it. My Dr did admit that she is finding that the withdrawals are far worse then she expected when she took on this roll of dispensing this med. Good Luck! Enjoyed reading your post! Need to start a new support group for suboxen users! I have suggested this to my Dr.View Thread
