Addiction related to suboxone
« on: December 30, 2019, 04:08:17 AM »
Hi,

I may be asking my doctor to prescribe bupenorphine for treatment-resistant depression (TRD). I get the impression that there is a low risk of dependence for this drug in patients who are using it for TRD, and who do not ahve a long history of opioid use . I know that Patients who abruptly stop opiods can experience side effects ( complain of fatigue, upset stomach, and sometimes other issues) . This pallid imitation of narcotic withdrawal is generally not associated with craving, and indeed patients do not usually, associate their symptoms with having stopped a drug such as vicodin until they experience the relief occasioned by restarting their treatment. But thats not really part of my problem

Thanks very much guys.

Just quick comment here- I stoped Suboxone at 4mg and got sick as a dog, much worst that hydro /  oxycontin. I called my doctor and he told me it may be 2 weeks before I feel better. OR come back in and start out again on 2mg and taper off. I just didn't want to be addicted to anything again so I'm trying to get through it in other ways. Hot /cold baths and meditation is the best. No motivation needed...
