    Hey Skybears
    Hang in there! What did you stop taking? You are on the suboxone forum so was it sub and how much? Get Imodium for bathroom issues. Stay hydrated. Drink water. That's very important. Can u drink Boost? You feel like it will never end but it will. Post when u can.

    Ming - Skybears started two threads, the other thread is in the "Prescription Drug Addiction" forum, here's a link - https://www.drugs.com/forum/prescrip...elp-72653.html

    Skybears - don't use this thread anymore, just stay on your other thread because you already have replies there.

    Hi everyone. Just alil of my story. From Canada and have been using suboxone in pill form for over a year. Was completely stuck in the percocet fog sometimes taking 20 a day when $allowed it. Started at 24mg sub which was too much but I thought cool got energy and finances again. Stupid I know. Soon I hated taking suboxone wanted to be pill free and tired of sampling weekly. Started lowering doses and was good then decided I knew more than clinic.. Lol often skipped doses for days. Didn't seem to notice any symptt. Finally at 10 mg prescription daily (still skipping occasionally) I get the bright idea that I can just stop cold turkey. OMG I am now 12 days free still sick. Didn't notice until about day 4-5 thought I had food poisoning.... Literally still have runs, shakes, sweaty palms. Finally can sorta find comfortable position to sit.But it is rough and challenging. Am I foolishly being stupid?_Should I give up now and go crawling back to clinic. Here our family doctor don't supply. Dang it I hate the taste of sub totally ruins my Tim Horton's coffees which btw can't stomach. Any. Thoughts!

    First of all I would recommend that you start your own thread so you can get personalized help and support. Jumping from 10mg of sub is a huge amount to jump from and definitely not recommended! You have two choices, stay the course you're on which is going to be a very long and rough road or go back on the suboxone and do a proper taper? I'll leave a link to Robert's sub taper plan at the bottom of this post so you can read through it, Robert's plan has been used by many, many people with great success! So, get your very own thread started as soon as you can, there are many members here that can help you through this. Take care... God bless us all!

    Hi Sally, I was in the same boat about the thread. Just press on the link Rick gave you and it will take you right there. You will see you are on the same page with others coming off Sub. I know about being chained to the clinic also, but methadone a few years back. It is a tough battle. I jumped off at 30 mils, that was hell on earth. Thoughts are with you Southern Girl, this Northern girl is with you. Thanks for your comment on my thread..There are a whole lot of good people on here, they know what they are talking about..Be well.....
