@rt061069 Thank you for sharing your experience with suboxone, Rob. Although this post is seven months old, it is still relevant. The move to suboxone has been put on hold while I deal with acute chronic fatigue syndrome. All my doctors are in agreement that the jump,to suboxone, and the need to go into withdrawal would be too hard on my already exhausted body. So, for now I continue my usual, but steady regimen of dilaudid. My pain specialist tells me there is no hurry to switch, so he is content with leaving where I am until I decide I’m ready to make the move to suboxone.

I am sorry to hear about the serious pain you have to contend with each day, Rob. It sounds miserable. Thank you for reaching out and sharing your suboxone experience with me!

The problem with Suboxone (don’t know if your doc told you this) is that because it’s used traditionally for people struggling with addiction… once you are on it you will never be able to go back to regular pain meds again and insurance won’t pay for them. Make your decision with much thought.
