I’ve been on Percocet for 5 yrs My doc wants me to switch to suboxone

I Percocet was working fine my doctor thought suboxone would be better because it’s a 24 hour drug.

Helllo & welcome.  You have been on perocet for 5 years and only take one Percocet a day? You DEFINITELY do not want to switch to suboxone. He wants you to use it for pain management? Can't even believe that would be suggested.

Oh please dont go the sub route.  Your doctor obviously doesnt understand what is all involved with Suboxone.  It is hell to come off of and very addicting.

Jerry...I couldn't agree more with the two Community Leaders who have posted above.  Especially since you only take one perc a day.  Suboxone is a money maker to most PMD's.  Is the dr rx'ing percs a Pain Mgmt Dr with a license to rx suboxone?  And this drug is a very STRONG synthetic opiate.  Much stronger than percs.  All you'll be doing is getting yourself into a huge mess that will be very difficult to get out of.  

Your one perc costs very little if ins is involved, but suboxone generally is NOT covered by ins.  You will also be required to go to a clinic every single month to get them.  You do Not want to go that route, believe us!
