[16 Feb 2010 | 4 Comments | ]

This drug is new to me. I haven’t heard much about it. The only things that I do know about it are the things I have read on the internet. I am willing to give it a chance. I’ve been on methadone program before and it worked. It just became too expensive. I was able to get off methadone and kept clean for 4 months.
Unfortunately, I recently relapsed. My new doctor only prescribes suboxone for heroin addicts. This is my second week on my medication, and isn’t working the same …

He has been on Methadone for about 4 months. But, all he does is sleep. We work together and while at work, anytime he sits down, he goes to sleep.
