Suboxone & Pain: Many pain management doctors also specialize in addiction medicine or prescribe suboxone. You're needs may be best served by finding such a doctor in your area. There are lots of options. Gaining control of your perception of pain is one key.

Work with your MD: Your md is the best person you should ask. Often the best dose for pain is 2 mg used 4 times a day. This is because of suboxone's unique agonist/antagonist properties and the limited duration of analgesia each dose provides. There are many other non medication strategies that can help you manage pain - meditation, acupuncture, exercise, biofeedback, massage, cognitive behavior therapy.
