I have had refractory depression for 20 years and have tried avery SSRI available. I found info on the internet about Bupe and wanted to try it. No MD would give it to me. I went to visit family in TX and decided to go to Mexico and get some Temgesic 0.2mg SL. I got 2 weeks worth and that was the best 2 weeks of my life. I felt emotions that I never experienced before. From happy, sad, mad, balanced, and so many more. I have always had anxiety and that is usually my only emotion. I was able to make decisions based on real emotions and not by anxiety.
Anyway, fast forward 2 months. Went to 5 different MD's and all turned me down. I finally went to a MD who is Suboxone certified and told him I was a Vicodin addict. He gave me Suboxone 8mg's x 30 pills. With the Temgesic I was taking 0.3mg every 4 hours with a total daily doe of 1.2 mgs. I am not doing as good on the Suboxone but still 50% better than usual. I find it hard to cut the pills in small doses. I could be taking from 0.2 to 0.7 mg at a time. Sometimes I feel very good and at other times feel like my old self.
A couple of question.
1- I know the Suboxone is not pure Bupe because it has Naloxone in it and as long as it is taking SL the Naloxone "should" have no affect. What are your feeling on this?
2- Do you have any suggestions on what I should do to try and get the dosages more accurate as far as splitting the pills?

I no this is the medicine for me at this time. Hopefully there will be other meds made in the future that will be easier to take or not addicting but after years of horrible depression/anxiety and tons of diffeent meds, I know this works for me.
