    subutex didn't work for me bc gave me a bad headache and a metallic taste in my mouth. suboxone is much easier on me but the prob is I got on these to get off something but now im stuck on these bc the withdrawals are just as bad as reg pain meds...so much for suppose to "help" get off something just to get "stuck" on something else...

    I have been on subutex for a year now and have had no desire to use pain meds on a daily bases like before. I feel like a new person with a whole new out look on life. Not just for myself but my family as well. if you want to stop using pain meds get with a doctor that helps with addiction problems. it works.
