Anyone switch to suboxone for pain n to get off full opiate

Aug 09, 2018 5:38 AM

I escalated my Vicodin dose this third year on it n dr wouldn’t give anything else so I went to a suboxone dr n got on a low dose n it helped a lot...not sure about long term but I was sick of opiate tolerance n sick of pain but suboxone for long term has bad press but it’s hard to know what to believe. I can get by with 2 mg s day

I have been told by many of my patients it is harder to get off suboxone than just weaning off opiates. I used Kratom to get off of mine it is an herb. There is tons of info on YouTube on kratom any of the red varieties bind to the opiate receptors but would NOT do that while on suboxone. It is not an easy road I wish you the best

Been there, I’m aware but thanks
Just curious if anyone is using it for pain (buttons, buprenorphine, subutex)

I just switched from suboxone to Subutex, same pain blocker med and don't need an addiction specialist to prescribe it

And yes I only use it for pain. Have found it to be much better then any of the pills
