CHAT now on SuboxForum.com

My computer-genius friend JJ has added chat to SuboxForum.com;  Someone go over there and try it and see if it works!  I just tried it myself, and it works fine when I was chatting one-on-one with myself…

All of this is a work in progress.  If anyone has ideas for the blog or forum or anything else, please let me know– [email protected] is my ‘idea line’.  You will note the RSS feed at the bottom of Subox Forum;  you can use that to follow the new posts using Outlook or Google Reader or any of the other newsreaders out there.  There are also now RSS feeds directly from this blog and from other blogs to the forum, allowing the easy posting of comments to the blog posts or to other comments.

Stay tuned:  there are still a few ideas up our sleeves… but in the meantime consider clicking on the chat section and leaving it open when you are on the site– that way it will let other people know you are there in case someone wants to say ‘hi’.

  1. If you are now on suboxone,get off immediately if you thinking about getting on suboxone don’t I’ve been on it for 2 years the day my prescription was to be filled my insurance was cancelled.I’ve been telling my doctor for months I was worried about insurance continuing to pay, he said wasn’t an issue. They don’t care about you they get kickbacks from big pharma to prescribe that poison. I’ve now been trying to wean myself off with 60 that was my last scrip and scrounged the cash almost 600$. I’m now going threw a worse he’ll then I ever went threw from heroin or pills. Warning this shit is poison and does not help just another addiction as bad as methadone and far worse then dope and pills. I’ve cold turkeyed both numerous times and it was much easier then this. Remember the government says this is ok. Ask yourself why

    • i’ll approve this post– just to show an example of the bizarre thinking out there. A number of studies have compared the withdrawal from agonists like heroin or oxycodone to partial agonists like buprenorphine; buprenorphine withdrawal is milder. That’s why they use it as a detox aide– although I suppose that’s part the conspiracy too!

      It has always been illegal for doctors to recieve anything of value in return for prescribing. Since 2008, it is illegal for doctors to take anything of value, unless for services that are paid at a rate comparable or less than other medical services. So if I drive a few hours and give a lecture to doctors about a new medication, I will get paid about $400 for that 4 hours. Of course I would make more just seeing patients– and if I give a lecture, my office costs (rent, heat, lights, internet, phone, secretary, and malpractice) continue to add up. So I used to give lectures when my practice was first starting up 10 years ago; it is lousy pay, and often requires sleeping in a bad motel, so I haven’t done it since my practice was up and running.

      But ‘kickbacks’? You’re not even fake news. You’re living on a fake planet in a fake world. So you think it is your doctor’s job to keep track of YOUR insurance coverage? The number on your insurance card is there for a reason. By the way– you can always buy your own insurance like the rest of us do…

      One last bit of information to show the absurdity of your logic- if you are so sure that heroin withdrawal is ‘easier than coming off Suboxone’, why don’t you just use heroin, and stop that? Or do the same with methaodone? It takes about 30 mg of methadone per day to totally take the place of the maximum opioid effects of buprenorphine– so just take 30- mg of methadone, and voila- you’re off ‘this poison’, as you put it! Of course I don’t recommend it, because it is extremely difficult– impossible for most people– to taper themselves off methadone or heroin, and people DIE from those drugs– whereas death is almost impossible from buprenorphine unless used by someone with no opioid tolerance.
