I get too worked up over this stuff sometimes lol.
You are right though. Be careful banning ip addresses.
Regardless. These types will still weasel there way into this forum no matter what.
So you just gotta keep doing what you’re doing and vice versa.

The smell of leather reminds me of my dad and my grandpa.
It’s that smell of their coats from when I was little.
Agreed. The best.
There are so many good things in life once you can take the time to look at them.
Think about how lucky you are! Lucky to be alive, be drug free, have some money, have a house, have a car, have anything good. Some have none of these. Nothing.

Ive used one of those discount cards for the films and it took off a whopping 4.00. Ive not tried using a discount card for the pills because Im afraid that it wont take anything at all off, and then you cant use the coupon from RBs Suboxone website with the generics. The only reason that I havent tried the generic tablets is because the cost of the first 14 for two weeks is kinda cheap and I dont think that I can get the tablets that cheap anywhere. I did however do a GoodRx.com search and it says that Walgreens can get me 30 of the 8mg pills the new generic for 121.00.
Im not sure if they will honor it, but I am going to try and see if they will honor it tomorrow somehow. if I find out anything, I will post and give an update.

Little more of The Kills.. I don’t think I’ve posted anything from Midnight Boom album..
"dancing on the legs of a new born pony
left right left right, keep it up son
go ahead and have her, go ahead and leave her
you only ever had her when you were a fever" — these lyrics are amaze.

Yeah I agree with you Romeo, this is only approximate and everybody is different. To me, it’s a way of keeping track of how much Suboxone I’ve taken and how the reductions in doses will affect the approximate level of Suboxone in my body during the taper process. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to take my serum levels everyday, so I settle for an approximate amount.
I’ve seen the Suboxone Taper Chart posted in previous threads, but it can only show you results for 1 month, so I didn’t find it very helpful. If you decide to download the Rx Film Taper Chart, I love your feedback.
For know, I’ll continue to take less and less and see where that goes…

Hey Brighter Days,
Sounds like you are are on the right track! I know how it feels to be on a low dose and just wanting to get off. You have to have patience and I know you can do it! If you don’t have a time constraint, I would taper in small amounts so you feel minimal withdrawal effects at each drop. When tapered from 4 to 3mg, I didn’t have much of a problem, but when I got to 3mg I started to taper by at least .25mg each drop. In my opinion, I would rather drop smaller increments more often, than a larger increment at once.
Also, I started taking good multivitamins, not the gummy kind your kids love, but performance multivitamins that weight lifters take. They put their body through a lot of stress so they need the proper supplements to refuel, as do you. I take Muscle Pharm Armor-V, but there are others that will work just as well. B-12 is good, but get L-Tyrosine as well to take with it. The combination of those two will help with neurotransmitter repair. I’m sure it’s difficult to get to the gym with 4 kids, but staying active really does help. When I’m preparing to drop my dose, I workout to exhaustion for several days in a row so my body and muscles are sore and it starts producing natural endorphins. Keep up with the water as well. Lots of water!
I’ll let others touch on the Prescription medications. If not, I’ll comment again in a couple of days.
Keep it up, stay positive and keep us updated on your progress!

Welcome again! I’m so glad you were able to get into the doctor and get started so quickly. In the next few days you will start to feel much better and can begin to focus on your new life. Don’t worry about not posting here first…there is no right or wrong way to do things here.
I bet you will feel almost back to normal within a couple days. It really doesn’t take that long. You made a brave decision to seek treatment…congratulations!

Woo Hoo! I’m so proud of you Sweet!
I was thinking about you the other day wondering how you were. I am so glad to get this update. Your only taking 1/2 mg??? That is so great, it will be a piece of cake to get off that no longer than you have taken it.
Sweet16 = Super star!
Keep rockin’ it!
