I had been doing really well on my Subutex prescription, but I had a lapse. In my view, I was told if this happened again I would be taken off Subutex or I would have to go on Methadone.
It seems to me that it is ok to have a lapse on Methadone but not Subutex, surely the same rule should apply to both.
Around here being on Methadone can be quite stigmatising, but with Subutex this is a lot less. I don't want to go on Methadone as I would see this as a step backwards.
