I have chronic pain for 10 years I have tried every thing but when they put me on OxyContin 3 years after I couldn't bare the pain I was a the end I tried to hang myself and I am positive it was because of oxy I was addicted and I think it did bad things to my brain. Now I'am much better I went to see a toxicologist he gave me suboxone to help take me of oxy it was gret no withdrawal . Now I'm still on suboxone every day for pain and it's great ,I found that It doesn't give you a high and you d'ont get addicted to it. Suboxone is a ipoid atangonist with It is not a full narcotic. I come fron Canada and Ived read on YouTube that some Dr. In the U.S.A are starting to prescribe suboxone for pain manengement and they all agree that it is safer then full blown narcotics. That was most hope it helps someone. One thing I've learn over the years is that never give up get informed find a good Dr. AND NEVER LOSE HOPE BECAUSE THE NEXT DAY IS BETTER THEN THE ON BEFORE AND IT DOS GET BETTER FOR ME ANY WAY.
