I am recovering from c5/c6 replacement and fusion. I have taken narcotic pills through pain management for 12 years ( i'm 29yrs old) and after I am over the post op pain (i'm on roxicodone 30mg 6x daily and nucynta 100mg 6 x daily) my Dr. wants to refer me to a suboxone doctor to pull me off of the opiates i've been on for so long to lower my tolerances and he says the suboxone will also reduce my pain and I can be on it for as long as I need if I want to stay on it or wein off of it also after a few months.
I'm looking to hear from anyone here that has tried this and from what I understand suboxone is the "new methadone" for addiction and pain management. Please give me any advice or opinions. I would definately like to reduce the amount I take but I am not going to live in pain either. Thanks
