    Beef -

    Brotop is on 3mg daily. Even if she went up to 4mg that would be fine in my opinion. But for tonight I think adding just .25mg would help her get over the hump, at least for tonight.

    I took the dose at 9:45. I hope it helps my heart rate def shot up as well. Just laying back out on some impractical jokers onntv and trying to relax. My doctor a while back in the hospital told me that my body metabolism broke down the pain medication quicker and it didn't last as long as it does in other people. I wonder if it is the same with this.

    I am starting to feel a little bit better. The shakes and the chills have calmed down. Hopefully the stomach is done as well.

    Didn't have the best night last night. Didn't get much sleep either. I took 2mg dose at 8am still feeling a little blah. I'm gonna do 2mg dose 8 hours later so around 4pm. Hopefully. That will help. When am I supposed to start doing one dose daily or do I continue to split it up?

    Hey Beef,
    I am def feeling better. I am doing 4mg a day. 2 equal doses 8 hours apart. 2mg in the am and 2mg 8-9 hours later. Yesterday I stopped swallowing the saliva. I keep my tongue up till it is dissolved. I think when I was swallowing it was numbing my throats and upsetting my stomach. Since I started doing that I am feeling wayyyy better. Both yesterday and today. I do not need the whole 12 mg per day the doctor suggested and gave me. and I'm glad to have found this group to tell me I didn't. Tomorrow I will be going back to the grind at work and back to my 60 hours a week. I am glad I did this while I was on vacation. It may have been to hard with my demanding job. I hope I am ready. I'm sure I'll be around here daily anyway. I enjoy the people on here very much. Very good people and that includes yourself.

    Good deal. I'm glad you're stable. It gets easier. Just follow that taper plan and this will be behind you in no time. I know what you mean about this place. It's intoxicating, even at work I can usually find time to break away and read some inspiration and strength from others. This place has saved my life for sure. Keep doing the next right thing my friend!!!

    I'm just gonna give myself a little time before I start the next step in the taper down. I just want to make sure I am ready to do it. I only one to do it once and I want to make sure I am in the right place to start. I might wait until after Christmas during my next vacation. I work a retail job and I am under serious stress and pressure during the holiday not to mention the day after Christmas will be the one year anniversary of my mom passing away. I am thinking December 28th will be right around the time I will start my journey to rid myself of everything. 2018 will be the year of focusing on me. One thing I also didn't tell you before I also stopped my 1 bottle a day habit of 5 hour energy (which is something I love more than anything). lol I hope your doing well beef. Thank you for checking in. I appreciate it

    Thank you very much Randy! I appreciate it! You are doing a great job helping people encouraging them and sharing your knowledge. Sometimes it's just good to hear it so I wanted to make sure I told you! I'm sure everyone else feels the same way as well!

    Thanx for check in beef. I am doing pretty good I think. It has been 1 week today since my last Vicodin. I fell like I am doing pretty good on the suboxone. I am back to working my usual 60 plus hours. The subs don't kill the pain as much as the Vics did but I feel more like myself and overall feel much better than I have

    How are things with you?

    So I gotta ask beef, is it a side effect for the suboxone to make me hungry. Before suboxone I would maybe eat one meal a day and a couple snacks while a was at work, nothing big. Now with the suboxone I am HUNGRY all the time and I mean all the time. See food on tv want it lol see a video about food on Facebook want it lol. Is it just me. Lol

    I know everybody is different. But for me when I was taking Suboxone I would miss meals. I usually had to force myself to eat breakfast and then I wouldn't eat again until dinner. But now that I'm clean I seem to be eating all the time. I'm sure I'll wind up putting on a nice Freshman 15. I'd say just roll with it enjoy every bite my friend

    I have 2 handicapped people at home (aunt and father) I have been out of the groove with cooking like I used to (I cook fancy meals) I cooked quick meals and got take out for us. They are trilled I am back to cooking fancy meals every night for dinner. Last night I made a Jamaican Jerk chicken with a coconut jasmine rice. I think I got my mojo back. Lol

    LOL. It certainly sounds like it I'm drooling now. I also love to cook. I work my way through college as a chef at a 4-star restaurant for two and a half years I can cook anything but during my detox I kind of got out of it because I was too busy wallowing in my own self-pity. But for the last 2 or 3 weeks I've definitely been doing more cooking and it feels really good

    Glad to hear you had a great day. Omg that meal sounds amazing!! Tonight's menu was a ribeye beef stroganoff! It was pretty damn good. Year ago I used to use those powdered mixes but over the years I have learned how to make things without those stupid mixes and it comes out sooo much better. The fam was very happy with the dinner, just a small amount left over for my aunts lunch tomorrow. Gotta figure out what to make for dinner tomorrow, but I do know I am gonna make a key lime pie. I have been craving it for dayssss!!!! Lol. Just gonna have a low key night and watch the Bruins game. (I prefer hockey to every other sport) I used to have season tickets for years till the prices got ridiculous. For 2 seats it was $8,000 for a season. Parking $35 a game, not to mention food. I'll stay home and watch on tv. Lol
