I was put on, and am still on, Suboxone when I went into IOP for opiate addiction. I was also on 4mg of Klonopin a day, and they was weened off it in 45 days. For me, Suboxone is a miracle drug. I have quit benzos and opiates cold turkey at the same time, and I don't wish that hell on anybody. The Suboxone DID NOT help the Klonopin withdrawal at all. It does help with the opiate withdrawal and cravings. After 2 months of being off of Klonopin, my doctor added Deplin and baclofen. Deplin has greatly helped my cognitive function and the lethargy that comes with benzo withdrawal. I find baclofen to be a great drug as well. It is a GABA B agonist while benzos are GABA A agonists. Baclofen does not work nearly as well for anxiety as benzos do, is not addictive, and does not give you a buzz what so ever. It helps with the post accute withdrawal symptoms from benzos and keeps the benzo cravings at bay. The Suboxone, Deplin, and Baclofen combiniation has me content and happy. I have suffered with extreme anxiety and depression since I can remember. I am a good looking, intelligent young man that comes from a great family, and have no reason to have depression. I know for a FACT that depression and anxiety are indeed brain disorders and they are real. You just have to find the drugs that work for you. I don't plan on staying on the Suboxone forever, and will SLOWLY ween that when I am ready, and am further along in my 12 step program. Good luck to you all. I highly recommend suboxone if you want off opiates.
