Through a set of circumstances, he had access to 8mg suboxone abouit 3 years ago and tried it for his pain and it helped it as well as his ADHD and drepression. He ended up being put on Suboxone film but went off of it about 18 months ago because he was afraid of getting strung out. He is suffering greatly, mentally and emotionally and we were discussing the possibility of him going back on it. He is currently taking atterall...sp?....and Norco but the Suboxone worked for it all......He had a doctor in the San Diego area that was helping him with it but, now, living in the Riverside, CA area can't find any doctors who deal with Suboxone and ADHD....we are desperate to find some help for him. The suboxone worked wonders for all of his symptoms.....Can you maybe refer us to someone or, some articles on the subject.
