I'm trying to make Suboxone, Buprenorphine work because I will not be able to get other opiate or opioid medications. It is working better than having nothing, but it is not as good as say Vicodin which worked much better. I can't really get off because like you I'm all alone, but also an opiate or opioid is the only way I can function. My Dr. has officially given me an opioid addiction diagnosis (I was using a limited ammount of Vicodin to treat myself), but we both know it's really for depression. Wellbutrin and other antidepressants, antipsychotics, moodstabalizers, these traditional drugs destroy me. I would prefer a different opiate but buprenorphine is the only thing i can get. I need something that works, and that I have access to. If it doesn't work in the long run I think I may have to give up all hope because I've spent my entire life in this system, and there's no where left to go. I'm not totally functional with an opiate or opioid, but I'm more functional than I have been before. Vicodin was more functional but buprenorphine is still making me able to do things. I'm not sure what my alternative would be at this point, unless you have a suggestion that is possible for me to obtain. Remember I have had much more therapy than drugs though I've had much of both.
