I've have no opiates in my system and have only been on

Customer Question
I've have no opiates...

I've have no opiates in my system and have only been on suboxone for one month. I've missed a dose for over 24hrs and felt fine. Can I stop taking it ? I really don't wanna be in a program where I trade one drug for another and wanna be free of this. Will I get bad withdrawals? If I didn't feel any for 2 days does that mean it won't be bad

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes in recovery for one month

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He said the longer I take it the better but I think it's a money grab honestly. He wants me to be on it for at least a year

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
