Cyboxin Drug – Saving Money On Cyboxin (Suboxone, Buprenorphine, Subutex, Naloxone)

Cyboxin Drug – Here to Help & Copay Reduction (aka Suboxone)

The manufacturer of the Cyboxin Drug (aka Suboxone Film, Buprenorphine, Subutex, Naloxone) for opiate addiction currently has two active ways to save money on prescriptions for it. The manufacturerer of the amazing life-saving Cyboxin Drug is a company called Reckitt Benckiser.

I love to tell people about the Cyboxin drug and Reckitt Benckiser because I believe that their Cyboxin Drug saves lives.

Reckitt Benckiser, Manufacturerer of Cyboxin Drug Offers $0 Copay

The one drug manufacturer that I am proud to talk about is Reckitt Benckiser. Why am I always happy to recommend their Cyboxin Drug? Good question, there are several reasons beside the fact that the Cyboxin drug saves a lot of lives by helping pain killer addicts recover before they end up over-dosing or worse.

Right now there are two ways to get the Cyboxin Drug for FREE or at reduced prices.

Cyboxin Drug $0 Copay Card

Cyboxin Drug $0 Copay Card (Suboxone)

Cyboxin Drug (Offer 1) – We have learned that Reckitt Benckiser is offering the Here to Help Pay $0 Copay and Save up to $50 per month deal until 2015. There are many different spellings used for the Cyboxin drug, but they all contain the same ingredient of Buprenorphine and Naloxone.

Cyboxin Drug (Offer 2) – There is a deal to save up to $100 monthly on Buprenorphine (Butrans) but this is not the same formulation as the Cyboxin Drug you know. Butrans does not have Naloxone, which is the drug that helps eliminate abuse potential and basically what makes it work for addicts. I don’t recommend asking your doctor for this drug and would go for the Cyboxin drug first.

Other Common Names For The Cyboxin Drug

If you are looking for the Cyboxin Drug for opiate (pain killer) addiction or heroin addiction then it is usually referred to by these names instead of Cyboxin. Some people spell it Saboxine or Syboxin I don’t know why they made it so confusing when it is really simple, the key ingredients are listed one of two ways.

  • Suboxone with Naloxone
  • Buprenorphine with Naloxone

Similar But Different Drugs Not Exactly Like The Cyboxin Drug

I would recommend avoiding these drugs because they do not have Buprenorphine and Naloxone like the Cyboxin Drug does.

  • Butrans
  • Subutex
  • Zubsolv
  • Methadone

How the program works:

  • copay card is used along with your health insurance or if you don’t have insurance the cost will be reduced by up to $50 per month for the Cyboxin Drug (SUBOXONE Film).
  • The newest version of the Cyboxin Drug is a thin plastic-like film. The film is called Suboxone Film and is more affordable than the SUBOXONE® (buprenorphine and naloxone) sublingual tablets (CIII), the octagon shaped orange tablets. The film tastes better and it works better in my opinion plus you can cut it with a razor blade to adjust dose amounts and save money.

Cyboxin (Suboxone Film) – Better Than Orange Cyboxin Drug Tablets

  • The Cyboxin drug dissolves faster than SUBOXONE® (buprenorphine and naloxone) tablets
  • Cyboxin has a much better taste than the orange tablets (over 71% of patients scored the taste better or the same)
  • Each dose is individually wrapped in blue and white sealed packages that are child resistant and easy to carry
  • Once-daily dosing like the Suboxone tablet

This offer will end in 2015 unless it is extended again.

Street Value of Various Opioid Medications

Suboxone Savings Hard To Find in 2014

Suboxone Savings Hard To Find in 2014

I would never condone buying medications this way.

I have been asked (several times) to solicit street pricing information from people across the world about prices for Suboxone, Suboxone Film, Oxycodone and just about any other opiate you can think of.

This is purely for entertainment purposes, it is sometimes funny to see what people are paying for things that our insurance buys for little to no copay.

I personally do not know how people can afford to buy on the street, but I am sure they have their reasons and we are not here to judge anyone.

Street Values For Suboxone & Other Opioids In Your Area?

I have been gathering information for a few weeks and have numbers for some of these opiate medications. If you have numbers for your city leave an anonymous comment please and I’ll update with your info. I might not be real fast but I will get it done.

Thanks for sharing it will be interesting to see the results. If I get enough of them I might make a nice graphic of the data.

Nothing Implied Here – Entertainment Only

Just because we might be interested in seeing what people pay for things we take, does not imply we would condone selling or buying anything on the street, for one it is illegal, and another you could be getting fake pills with dangerous cutting agents!

I speak for myself, have never, not once exchanged anything like this. I would be too nervous as a buyer (of dying) and too nervous as a seller of going to prison for a felony. But I do live in Florida and there is no shortage of people that know the under-world. So in the nature of entertainment…

Buprenorphine Is Expensive – Buprenorphine Coupons For 2015 Are Ready!

Buprenorphine Coupons For 2015 Are Available – Savings Up to $75

Besides the obvious headache of spending a lot of money on your Buprenorphine script you have likely had to deal with the new headaches surrounding scripts for controlled substances. Even worse try getting one filled at Walgreens or CVS and you might walk out feeling like a criminal, or suspecting that you were lied to about the drug not being available.

Why do the pharmacists need to look up your Drivers License number before informing you that they are out of stock? This was a rhetorical question. We aren’t as dumb as they think we are right?

CVS & Walgreens Take Buprenorphine Coupons – Even From Criminals

Well if you are still willing to get bent over backwards at CVS or Walgreens there is one thing you should do. Look for the latest Buprenorphine Coupons for 2015. We always have active Buprenorphine Savings Coupons and Suboxone Coupons active at any given time.

I get so disappointed with Walgreens and CVS and every time I go– I end up promising myself that I’ll never go again. They even started hassling me about my Buprenorphine Coupon. I yell at the pharmacist every time I leave and end up regretting it because it isn’t the fault of the employee but rather the corporation.

But I digress the subject here is Buprenorphine Coupons and without further delay– here they are.

I wrote a letter to Wagreens corporate, and they never bothered to contact me. I have been a long (many year) customer with lots of prescriptions.

I will turn as many people from Walgreens as possible.

CVS Sucks – The Website – This is actually pretty funny. I’m sure CVS isn’t too happy.

The Place To Get Buprenorphine Coupons 

You should use online pharmacies, they will put the customer disliking pharmacies out of business. Both CVS and Walgreens are having financial difficulties and their stocks are getting hammered. Why? Because everyone hates them, at least everyone in Florida does.

Savings Tips

  • Where’s the Generic?: Looking for Suboxone sublingual tablets? The brand-name version has been discontinued, but generic buprenorphine/naloxone is still available. Learn more
  • Insurance Coverage: Many major insurance plans no longer cover brand-name Suboxone film as of 2014. Learn more
  • Manufacturer Coupon: Save up to $50 per month on Suboxone film. Learn more
  • Coupon Notice: This drug is a controlled substance. Please be aware that some pharmacies may not honor coupons for controlled substances.

CVS & Walgreens Quotas & Hassle With Buprenorphine Coupons

I have found by personal experience that pharmacies are given quotas by the DEA meaning the DEA tells them how many Suboxone, how many Buprenorphine, how many Adderall they can fill based on the market size. They will often lie to you saying they are out, this has been proven by people who performed coordinated tests. They usually will be out if you are a frequent traveler for Schedule II substances. You are out of luck if you happen to have ADHD and be in pain or need Suboxone.

Legal Recourse For Not Filling Scripts?

What happens when someone has a seizure for not taking a medicine they are dependent on because of CVS or Walgreens? Is there legal recourse? History will tell us but I suspect the corporations are well protected. If I have a seizure due to not getting the Klonopin– which COULD happen is the pharmacy liable for my death if they lied or denied me doctor ordered medications?

Quitting Suboxone or Buprenorphine on your own – Why is it so hard?

Why is Quitting Buprenorphine, Suboxone or other opiates so hard?

Voluntary control – Decision to take medicine

The initial decision to take a medicine or drug is considered voluntary control.

Once you start taking an addictive or dependent drug for a period of time and your body gets used to being under that influence, you are non longer under voluntary control. Your control is seriously compromised because you suffer major pain or uncomfortable feelings when you don’t take the Buprenorphine.


It can become very expensive to be addicted to Buprenorphine

Eventually the decision to take Suboxone was voluntary, but it becomes more and more important to the point that much of your day can go into planning on how to obtain the medications. So you need to find ways to save money on the purchases.


Brain Changes After Addiction – Long Term or Longer

Opiate addiction can impair the mechanism by which information from certain areas of the brain—handle judgment or caution. The brain will satisfy the need for opiates like it does for the need when hungry or thirsty.

Brain imaging studies of addicts show physical changes in parts of the brain related to judgment, decision making and even learning or memory. So the dependence can be very destructive.


If You Still Feel You Need for Buprenorphine, You can find many ways to save money on the purchase here. See the side bar.

Buprenex, Buprenorphine Started As Schedule V Narcotic in USA, 1985

Buprenorphine Drug Scheduling Timeline

Buprenorphine was first marketed in America in 1985, it was then scheduled by the FDA as a Schedule V narcotic. The only available product in the United States at that time was a very low-dose formulation intended for injection.

It was sold under the brand name Buprenex®. The FDA said that diversion, abuse & trafficking was occurring in Europe and other parts of the world. Considering the strength of Buprenorphine, it doesn’t surprise me that it was misused and/or trafficked.

Anyone who has attempted to stop taking Buprenorphine (aka Suboxone) knows how difficult it can be, sometimes more difficult than quitting other addictive opiates. If you are trying to taper from an addictive opiate or suboxone, you can check out the suboxone taper calculator on this site, or check out the new one on

DEA Scheduling of Buprenophine


Subutex and Suboxone were approved by the FDA in 2002 as schedule III Narcotic

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved two buprenorphine products (Suboxone® and Subutex®) for the treatment of opioid addiction.


Both products are high dose (2 mg and 8 mg) sublingual (under the
tongue) tablets:

  • Subutex® is a single entity buprenorphine product
  • Suboxone® is a combination product with buprenorphine and naloxone in a 4:1 ratio, respectively.


DEA Places Burprenorphine Products In Schedule III in 2002

The DEA placed buprenorphine and all products containing buprenorphine into schedule III in 2002. Since 2003, diversion, trafficking and abuse of buprenorphine have become more common in the United States.


FDA Approves Extended Release Buprenorphine Product – Butrans® in 2010

In June 2010, FDA approved an extended release transdermal film containing buprenorphine (Butrans®) for the management of moderate to severe chronic pain in patients requiring a continuous, around-the-clock opioid analgesic for an extended period of time.

Frontage Road Methadone Clinic – 300 Frontage Road – New Location…

Frontage Road Methadone Clinic – Closing After 40 Years

Frontage Road Methadone Clinic

Frontage Road Methadone Clinic

The Frontage Road Methadone Clinic located on 300 Frontage Road will be closing the doors to Opioid addicts as a result of cost cutting measures. The Boston Board of Health voted almost unanimously 6 to 1 in favor of shutting down the Frontage Road Methadone Clinic.

300 Frontage Road Methadone Clinic > Bay Cove 66 Canal St.

The one vote against closing the Frontage Road Methadone Clinic was cast by Celia Wcislo, vice president of Local 1199 of the Service Employees International Union.

According to health officials, the city wants to redirect the clinic’s budget to Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s proposed Office of Recovery Services. The mayor, a recovering alcoholic, made strengthening the city’s support network for substance abusers a cornerstone of his campaign.

Barbara Ferrer, executive director of the city’s Public Health Commission,, of the $2.4 million operating cost for the Frontage Road Methadone Clinic, “Is not necessarily what the health department should be doing with scarce resources.”

Ferrer said that the service will not end until a high quality replacement for the Frontage Road Methadone Clinic is found.

“We have no intention of ever signing off on anything that would compromise our ability to offer a great service,” she said.

Frontage Road Methadone Clinic – To Be Suffolk County House of Correction

Rita Nieves, director of addiction services for the Boston Public Health Commission, said that the 300 Frontage Road Methadone Clinic clients are expected to transfer to the Suffolk County House of Correction at South Bay by July 1.

“This is a complex transaction, and we will work this plan until the last client has been transferred,” Nieves said. “We’re not married to a particular date. . . . The more important thing here is that the transfer happens with no interruption” in service.

Frontage Road Methadone Clinic Closing


Methadone is a synthetic narcotic used for treating opiate addicts. Methadone works by reducing the cravings that an addict has for opiates like heroin or other strong pain-killers such as oxycodone or dilaudid.

At least one of the current clinicians at the Frontage Road Methadone Clinic was concerned about the timing of the proposal and its potential consequences. They asked to not be named for fear of retribution and said,

“We’re in the middle of a heroin epidemic,” the employee said. “The clients are unraveling because they’re not sure if their insurance will cover the treatment.”

Zubsolv, A New Suboxone Alternative for Opiate Addiction Treatment

Zubsolv, A New Formulation of Buprenorphine and Naloxone

Zubsolv is a new drug formulation of Buprenorphine and Naloxone. Zubsolv is similar to Suboxone and has been approved by the FDA for the same use, opiate addiction.

  • ZUBSOLV is available in 2 doses for Opioid Dependence, 5.7 mg and 1.4 mg.
  • ZUBSOLV is Individually sealed in the highest level of child-resistant unit-dose blister packs (F1 child-resistant)

Zubsolv v.s. Suboxone for Opiate Dependence

Zubsolv comes in two dose sizes that compete directly with Suboxone’s 8mg/2mg and 4mg/1mg strips and sublingual tablets. Orexo, the maker of Zubsolv claims that the dose formulations are comparable to Suboxone even though they contain lower amounts of Buprenorphine and Naloxone. The lower dose sizes are equivalent because the new drug formulation has a higher bio-availability, meaning that a higher percentage of the dose is available to the human body in this new formulation.

The jury is still out on whether Zubsolv works as well as Suboxone. It is the authors’ opinion that Suboxone and Zubsolv should be compared by their dose size and not the claimed bio-availability of the drug. If I had the choice of Suboxone 8mg/2mg v.s. Zubsolv 5.7mg dose I would take Suboxone as it contains more of the medication.

Dosing Comparison For Treatment of Opiate Addiction

Zubsolv 5.7 mg Sublingual Tablet

Zubsolv 5.7 mg Sublingual Tablet

Zubsolv’s 5.7 mg Burprenorphine with 1.4 mg Naloxone comes in a round Menthol flavored sublingual tablet, and is said to have a higher bio-availability than Suboxone strips making it equally as effective as Suboxone in the 8mg/2mg size.





Zubsolv 1.4 mg Sublingual Tablet

Zubsolv 1.4 mg Sublingual Tablet

Zubsolv’s 1.4 mg Burprenorphine with .36 mg Naloxone comes in a triangular Menthol flavored sublingual tablet, and is said to have a higher bio-availability than Suboxone strips making it equally as effective as Suboxone in the 2mg/.5mg size.





How to take Zubsolv for Opiate Addiction

Taking Zubsolv is similar to taking Suboxone sublingual film, or sublingual tablets. Simply open the package and place the dose under your tongue allowing it to dissolve naturally. Like Suboxone, movement, talking, or drinking while dissolving the tablet is not recommended. Full instructions for taking Zubsolv can be found on Orexo’s Zubsolv website.

The Suboxone Roller-coaster Is Not Approved by the FDA

The dangerous Suboxone Roller-coaster is gaining popularity

There is no real ride with this name, however it represents a trend that seems to be increasing among opiate addicts around the world.  This opiate ride is not approved by the FDA. It is not doctor approved. And even though the ride is dangerous it doesn’t stop addicts from living this thrill ride.

Subutex and Suboxone are medications approved for the treatment of opiate dependence. Both medicines contain the active ingredient, buprenorphine hydrochloride, which works to reduce the symptoms of opiate dependence.

What is the Suboxone Roller-coaster Ride?

It can be described in one paragraph.

When someone alternates between Suboxone & typical pain medications. They might start Suboxone Monday evening after a weekend binge on Oxycodone. They might also stop the Suboxone on Thursday in anticipation of another Oxycodone binge on the weekend. This is done with a dangerous disregard of the risks of Suboxone precipitated withdrawal. Precipitated withdrawal is dangerous and can occur when an opiate user takes Suboxone before the opiates are naturally eliminated from their body.

Why would someone do this?

The answer is very clear. It allows opiate addicts to maintain their habit with much less money than using typical opiates every day.


Alternating Suboxone (Buprenorphine Naloxone) with other narcotics is dangerous

You’ve all heard the expression, “Have your cake and eat it too”, right?  Well this is what I am referring to when I talk about alternating between Suboxone strips and typical opiate drugs.

The main driver for this disturbing trend is money. Opiates are very expensive to take on a regular basis. Once you become addicted then you must take opiates, otherwise you’ll feel bad withdrawal symptoms.

It costs hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to keep an opiate addict comfortable per month. Suboxone helps an addict reduce the monthly cost to keep withdrawal at bay. Suboxone also allows an addict to keep on partying, albeit the partying will be less often and less intense.

Which opiates are addicts taking with Suboxone?

  • Hydrocodone (Lortab, Lorcet, Hydrocodone-APAP)
  • Oxycodone (Oxy’s, Roxy’s, Blues, Blueberries, Percocet, Percs)
  • Hydromorphone (Dilaudid)


Suboxone Precipitated Withdrawal – Fact or Fiction?


I have talked about Suboxone Precipitated Withdrawal before and suggested that it might be a myth perpetrated by the drug-industry to scare addicts into not alternating between Suboxone and other short acting opiates. You can read more about it in Suboxone Precipitated Withdrawal – Fact or Fiction.
Please remember that mixing Suboxone with other opiates, especially long lasting opiates such as Methadone is not only dangerous, it is downright deadly. I am basing this on what I’ve read and I believe it.

The Suboxone Roller-coaster saves the addict money

Typical street prices for 8mg Suboxone strips (buprenorphine naloxone) are similar to that of an Oxycodone 30 however the Suboxone lasts about six times as long. This unique combination has some resourceful addicts flirting with disaster and mixing the two to party with Oxy’s on the weekends and ride the Suboxone Roller-coaster during the week.

Dollars Per Hours – The Driving Factor

Drug Name & Strength Half Life Hours Street Price (Florida) Cost: Get High (subjective) Cost: Stop Withdrawal (subjective)
Oxycodone 30mg Tablet     6   $20   $80 / Day    $40 / Day
Hydrocodone 3 x 10mg Tablets     6   $18   $72 / Day    $36 / Day
Suboxone Tablet 8mg split evenly over four days    36   $18   n/a    $3 / Day
Suboxone Strips 8mg split evenly over four days    36   $18   n/a    $3 / Day


Dancing with the devil

I have heard far too many stories about addicts alternating between Suboxone and other narcotics to save money without giving up narcotics entirely. This is a disturbing trend. I don’t know what the long term effects of long term Suboxone use are but from what I have learned it doesn’t sound like a great idea. What do you think?

So many people playing the Suboxone game. I seem them party on Oxy 30’s occasionally and then ease into a softer Suboxone world where major withdrawal doesn’t hit until two to three days after your last dose.

Oxycodone is a habit that can, and does financially break a lot of people.

Suboxone, or Buprenorphine Naloxone on the other hand is relatively cheap. Suboxone maintenance doses can cost less than a lunch and hold off severe withdrawal for amazing lengths of time.

Let me know if you have heard about the Suboxone Roller-coaster ride. I would love to hear comments about this and see if it is a Florida trend, or something larger.

Suboxone Withdrawal is TERRIBLE – Quitting Suboxone IS Possible

Freedom from Suboxone Addiction begins as an idea


Have you tried to quit Suboxone and felt like you’re never going to succeed?

Beating Suboxone AddictionYou know quitting is the right answer. But quitting is hard. Quitting an addictive drug is like swimming out to sea against the incoming waves. You end up back where you started, over, and over again. Does this sound familiar?

I know that gut wrenching feeling of ending up in the same place. I’m in pain. I’m exhausted. I’m losing hope that I’ll ever make it. Have you ever lost faith?

You are not alone. I was where you are now. I learned how to break free from my addiction. I know that you can too. Are you willing to make one small change?

Suboxone is very addictive and can cause unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Quitting Suboxone is impossible without making a decision to change.

You made it this far. You can end your addiction. All you need to do is initiate change no matter how small. You can make small changes right?

Congratulations you are on the road to recovery from Suboxone Addiction.


The next step in beating Suboxone Addiction is deciding on a change


A nuclear submarine is on collision course with a massive iceberg. The course must be changed to avoid catastrophe. Are you ready to change your heading towards a better future?

The captain of the submarine knows his direction of travel must be changed immediately. Without change the sub will crash into the iceberg. It would be a tragedy of epic proportions. Each moment of delay makes the turn away more difficult or impossible. Now is a great time to change direction, don’t you agree?

We can change our destination with a thought. That sounds weird but it is true. The moment you change direction,  no matter how small, you have changed your destination.

It happens instantly why not give it a shot?

Imagine your self-confidence soaring as your small changes accumulate becoming noticeable changes, and you begin to feel better. You will start thinking clearly again. This is how I beat addiction. It’s how you can beat addiction too if you want to.

Now is the time to turn the ship.

Now is the time to begin the change.

Now is the time to alter the destination!

Thankfully, the submarine crew followed orders and it was a happy ending.

Change is the key idea that starts the recovery. The laws of physics are clear that an object in motion is likely to stay in motion. You must make change a top-priority. If you accomplish only one thing today, decide what change you are willing to make to beat Suboxone addiction.

Are you ready to end the Suboxone addiction once and for all?


The most important step is making the change that you decided on

You need to make your change and make it permanent. After you make your change then you should repeat the process from the beginning but make each change more difficult. It may take several months to quit Suboxone and avoid withdrawal symptoms. If you haven’t seen my Suboxone Taper Charting tool you may want to work with your doctor and plan a very gradual taper plan.

Addicts are brilliant people. It is proven that addicts tend to have higher IQ’s than non-addicts. Then why isn’t beating an addiction easier?

I wish that I had an answer to the question.

I do have a solution to the problem. You can conquer your addiction starting today. You simply need the right motivation. You need to want the change before you can make it happen.

Have you decided what change you want to make today?

Knowledge acquisition IS change

You can start by learning about addiction.

Learning about addiction will help you to conquer it. The submarine captain has studied the enemy so the enemy can be destroyed. Knowing the enemy helps defeat the enemy. Addiction is the enemy, right?

It doesn’t matter how small your change is. The smaller your change the better chances of success! What changes can you commit to right now?

A drug holiday IS change

You can initiate drug holidays or times when you will NOT use the drug. It doesn’t matter how small the window of time is as long as you are serious about sticking to it. Don’t make your change too difficult and set yourself up for failure.

Refuse to use on Sunday.

Refuse to use between 9am and noon.

Refuse to use on holidays.

These are only ideas. What small change will you make today?

Write it down somewhere where you’ll see it every day. If you can’t do that than do something to symbolize the decision like tying a string on your finger. Hold yourself accountable to the small change. I know this probably sounds corny, but it’s serious. Make your changes SMALL so you easily handle them. I mean really small too, so that you could bet your life being able to do it. OK?

Small change is easier than big change.

Small change has the highest probability of succeeding. If you make a small change in the right direction your confidence will soar. This pattern of small, steady changes will take you to a place you never thought existed without drugs.

I learned how to escape addiction with the help of others. My present, and future is bright and hopeful. I know you will succeed because you are still reading. Will you stick with me?

You are almost there. The next step is urgency.


Recovery from Suboxone addiction works best with a sense of urgency


Urgency is driven by fear or passion.

Change is critical in quitting SuboxoneIf you don’t have fear or passion than you don’t have urgency and you are unlikely to change course. Urgency means making change your first priority. Can you think of a change that might be good for you?

If you don’t make changes than you will never change the destination. You will end up at the same place over, and over again. Your life will not get any easier until you start to make changes. Every day, every week that goes by makes it more difficult to quit. You know in the back of your mind that something needs to change. Are you with me?

Could you NOT use for the first ten minutes of each hour?

You could easily not use from the top of each hour until ten minutes after the hour. I mean, ten minutes can not be that hard. Sure, it might be uncomfortable if you are partying and you suddenly stop for a break. Your partying friends will laugh but they’ll watch and expect you to fail. Do this every day, every week, and you will begin glowing with confidence. Your confidence will become contagious. Can you see it?

Are you not ready to reduce usage yet? No problem.

You can still begin to change now.

Learning about addiction is action. Learning will help you understand the enemy. You can destroy the enemy with knowledge and time. Imagine how you will feel once you have conquered addiction. Make knowledge your first change.

Find a good book about addiction so you can learn.

If you don’t do it now while the voices aren’t telling you otherwise, you may never do it. Start steering your life in the right direction today. Start your change now with urgency because life is not a drill. You may have dodged bullets until now but you can’t forever. You already know this though, right?

I picked two of my favorite books on addiction and they are both really cheap. You can probably buy both of them for less than it would cost for one Suboxone tablet on the street. It’s hard to believe that one pill costs the same as two books that could save your life. I’m sure you are tired of wasting money on Suboxone, right?

The books I recommend are shown as links within this article. Consider reading your book with a friend. Two people have a better chance of success than one.

It is not heroin or cocaine that makes one an addict, it is the need to escape from a harsh reality. There are more television addicts, more baseball and football addicts, more movie addicts, and certainly more alcohol addicts in this country than there are narcotics addicts. Shirley Chisholm

Consistent change, a sense of urgency and time are the pillars of success

Some people don’t have addictive personalities. Some people have strong will-power. We weren’t blessed with will-power but we were blessed with intensity.

Addicts do things with great intensity. Now is the time to get intense and make a small change.

Then another change. And another. You get the picture right?

Now is the time to stay on track and continue changing your destination. Begin making your first change today. And remember that knowledge is a start in the right direction.

I’m excited that you have made it this far.

You are obviously ready to quit Suboxone for good and I’m confident you will succeed.

Its time to crush your Suboxone addiction while there is still time.

Drug Half-Life Elimination Suboxone Taper Planning

Drug Half-Life Elimination & Suboxone Taper Planning Tool

Cold-Turkey Suboxone Taper

Suboxone will build up in your system because the half-life is very long, it takes about 37 hours before half the active drug has been removed from your blood.  This is an average, if you take many medications or are older the length of time may be significantly higher.

Due to the long half-life withdrawal on day one after cold-turkey will not be too bad, and day two through seven are a rapid descent from normal to hell-on-earth. The withdrawal will get worse over the next three do five days peaking at around seven to ten days. This is my opinion you should contact your doctor with questions about how the drug might affect you.

Warm-Turkey Suboxone Taper with a two tiered drop down in dose

The next taper example is much better than the cold-turkey, but still has a rapid drop off in blood levels after the first week but the taper after that is more gradual and would be easier than a full “cold-turkey”.

There is technology available that can actually help with this problem, it is a LOCKED dispensing device where you can literally LOCK your doses and you can only access them according to your plan. I wish they had this before I went COLD-TURKEY.

You can find details right here.




Use the Taper Charting Tool to create a personalized taper plan that minimizes withdrawal.


This plan is better but still too sharp after the first week.




 Maintain Strict Dose Schedule

This watch on Amazon allows you to program in medication dose times and reminders so that you can follow a strict taper plan?  The cost is around $34.64 with Free Shipping which is less than the street price for just two tiny Oxycontin 30 milligram pills. You can get a pill scheduling watch at my f a v o r i t e on-line merchant, and the cost is around $34.64 shipped.

Taper Charting Tool  – Use it here

If the Taper Charting Tool does not open below, you can try going to the dedicated page. The tool is written in Silverlight so you may be prompted asking for permission to run/install the Microsoft Silverlight embedded run-time library. You can use the tool to slow taper from alcohol, suboxone, buprenorphine, oxycodone, adderall or other addictive opiates.
