I have got myself a little problem. I am currently on a 24mg a day bupe maintenance program and although it works great for curbing cravings and withdrawal symptoms I am still left with alot of loose ends that need to be tied up. Prior to starting on sub I was (and still am, just not on opiates) a chronic pain patient and prescribed 100mg MScontin 3x daily and 10mg percocet for breakthrough. I also supplemented my prescribed meds with large amounts of H, OC, Dilaudid, etc.. My main issues are with the fact that I am still in excruciating pain on a daily basis and have nothing for relief. Also, since I started on the bupe I cannot drink hard alcohol or drink more than about four beers a night. This is pretty annoying for me as I really enjoy to drink, and when I drink enough it kills my pain and lets me get some decent sleep. If anyone has any experience in managing chronic pain while on sub, please let me know. This fucking sucks, I want my goddamn opiates back!
