> hi,
> i have just stumbled on this site, and thought id share an australian experience. i have been on and off subutex for the past 8mths, but this time i think its going to work. the doc put me on 12mgs 2 wks ago and i still felt a bit crap for the first few days, but then started feeling terrific. i am now down to 8mg, have reduced by 2mg every 4days, but think im going to slow it down to 1mg reductions every 4 days once i hit 6. in brisbane (aus) the cost varies between $3-$5 / day, im lucky to be only paying $3 which is 1/100 of what i was paying for herion!! my advice to anyone is to try subutex ... its not as easy as methadone to start on (the slight crap feeling), but compared to waking up every morning sweating, sick and crampy is fantastic. i am however worried about coming off it completely -- last time i was back on drugs before i finished my course so couldn't gage properly how much pain i would feel. any one out there on a similar dose schedule to me who has come off it completely?? i think the doc is going to put me on an anti-depressant when i get to a low dose, and eventually naltrexone.
> spose i just want to liaise with someone out there going through the same thing...
> thanks

hi aussiegirl, Im another aussie girl on temgesic which is the ordinary prescription form of buprenorphine. Im taking it for depression & it works very well. You may be able to consider maintenance therapy on bupe as a prevantative for heroin relapse & for depression?
