Thank you all for your support. My story with opiates is a somewhat long story as I race mountain bikes and do many extreme activities and as you can imagine getting injured is part of the game. Shoulder and ankle injuries in specific pushed me to self medicate and follow specific prescribed pain regimines. I did only about 1/16 of the 8mg suboxone strip and it helped with sleeping, and of course the aches and pains.
I did however feel some nausea and slight shoulder and neck tension not long after using subs. But my anxiety subsided soon after I git relaxed but the 24-48 hrs after using black, oxy ect was pretty miserable. Not to ment
ion I work full time so I NEEDED something.
I will take your advice and visit a sub doc to find a plan that works. I would like to stay with a short term plan to ween off opiates altogether. Suboxone seems like a pretty good way to acheive this. Thank god for health insurance I feel for anyone struggling without it and my hopes go out to them.
I love forums and I can’t thank you all enough for your advice and input. Feel free to continue this discussion with me while i proceed onto my path of success. God bless and thanks guys! -B
