I so agree here Junkboy..  I was on it for a very short time and I suffered for 8 mo before I finally caved and started oxy's.  Nasty drug.... and my most meant to say NEVER DO 32mg   Never more then 2mg for who cares what habit.   I myself... would rather ct from 600 of oxy

if someone asked me, i would NEVER recommend sub or methadone to anyone who wants to get off of opiates... they are a motherfucker to get off of... the easiest form to get off of is heroin or morphine or codeine or hydro... this is my personal opinion.. i wouldn't get on sub for any reason and would strongly suggest not ever getting on it to anyone who asked me....
its a bitch to get off of.... uggggg........ i used 8mg for several and tapered down to 2mg and getting off that last 2mg was the worst experience.. it was easier to go cold turkey off of 80mg of Oxycontin than get off that 2mg....... 
again, my own experience and opinion.

if one is inducted on sub properly.. there is no wd from the sub.  There is NEVER a reason to be on Mg or suboxone.  The only reason MD Rx this amount is for the "keep coming back"  clause.  Going from Meth to sub can be very tricky, from short actings one just needs to be in obvious wd.  More then Light wd.  I went the sub route and very sorry for it.  If on the sub for a very short time it may help lessen the wd, if you become addicted to sub, LOOK OUT.

It is very nice to see an opiate addict be able to admit they are addicted and not afraid to ask for help.  Many people like you get into it not really knowing how hard it will be to get off or any of that and won't even admit to themselves that they are addicted.  They take these drugs for a while thinking nothing of it and one day try to get off and have no idea what painful withdrawls they are in store for.  Anwyay, you could try suboxone first, they will probably start you off on 32 mg. which is the highest dosage, but you will probably go through about 3 days of pretty bad withdrwal and another couple days of acute withdrawl.  But once you get stable you can start going down in dosage.  For me I went down by 4 mg a month I think, which is pretty slow, you could go down faster if you want.  I would get down to 2mg a day before you try to get off.  Some people have no problem getting off that amount but for me I still had withdrawls that lasted
 4+ days and I eventually gave up, but I would try this first and at least you will get down to a lower level of opiates and from there you have other options like the ibogaine, but you would have to switch to a short-acting opiate first before you take the ibogaine.  
My experience with doctors hasn't gone too well my only options are the methadone clinic, going to a doc for suboxone, or getting pills off the street to try to wein off.  I have been on both methadone and suboxone and both are very very hard to get off of because they stay in your system so long the withdrawls last much longer too.  I decided to get poppy pods and try to wein off of them or maybe switch from the pods to Tramadol and then try to wein off that.  Good luck to you!

Hi Tom

I guess I am confused, is there something keeping you from doing 
ibogaine?  It sounds like exactly what you need based on what you told 
the oxyabuse folks.
