Why do I still crave heroin so much even when im on subutex?

Not magic: Subutex is a great tool but not always enough. Some people with high heroin tolerance dont get complete relief. Because subutex only partially stimulates the opiate receptor there is a limit to what it can do. Above 24 mg no good evidence of increase benefit and not recommended. Talk to your doctor.

It depends: First, you have to be completely honest with yourself about your use of Xanax (alprazolam). Was it prescribed by a doctor that knows your history? Are you taking it as directed? Are you working towards weaning off? If no to any of these questions, your medication use is suspect. Talking may be more helpful in this instance. ...Read more
