    Suboxone

    Hi Everone! I want to tell you what a wonder drug Suboxone is. I had been taking about 15 Percocet and/or Lortab daily and crushing 6-8 Morphine CR 30 mg, in addition to that. I went to the Suboxone website and saw that my psychiatrist was certified to prescribe it. Now, I have several disc issues, plus arthritis, bursitis, spondylosis, hyperlordosis, lots of things that are quite painful. I went into the hospital on Wednesday, 3/4/09 and began the Suboxone induction the following day. It's a miracle, I have no cravings, no withdrawal symptoms, I feel good. I mean really good. I was discharged on Saturday. I have been fighting the opiate demon for almost 20 years. This is the first time I have hope that I can conquer it. Please, if anyone out there has the opportunity to partake of this medication, try it. I was hard-core. I have been to prison, lost my nursing license, so many things. I now feel I have found the light.
