i've gota good mate that has found: CDP choline, Aniracetam, Tianeptine, and L Theanine helpful in his opiate addiction and battling it. Adding these ontop of what he was already doing helped him resist and get past his addiction (albeit it is continually something he fights).

I suffer from chronic pain -- part of the radius bone in my arm has surgically been removed over a decade ago and it still hurts like hell sometimes, so I have to take something for that. Right now, I'm on oxycodone 5mg 3x a day. I think it has a worse reputation (especially the time-release form OxyContin) than hydrocodone, but for me has caused much fewer problems with less undesirable side effects, especially mentally. I don't really know much about suboxone other than it's used both for a painkiller and to help people get off stronger but short-acting opiates like heroin, somewhat like methadone. Good luck in any case. Oh and if you suffer from diarrhea from opiate withdrawal, buy the OTC drug Loperamide. It is actually an opiate itself, but can not successfully cross the blood-brain barrier permanently, so doesn't get you high or anything, but it has the same effects on the gut.

Why do you need to come off the suboxone? What does your doctor say?
