I've come to the conclusion that you can't really help someone addicted to heroin. They must first want to help themselves...and rarely will they do that...However, if if you can get them to take seboxone for 3 months continuously they will begin to see things differently. The key is continuously-everyday for 3 months. The seboxone will give the brain time to heal...and eventually they will start to feel good about themselves...During this time period they will say ....hey I'm good...I'm not an addict anymore...and I don't need to take the seboxone anymore...Whatever you do don't let them stop...Their brain will tell them they don't need it...so they can use again...it's the wierdest thing but I think the brain knows what it's doing...Remember to tell them that this happens all the time and that its a "Brain Trick"...It happened several times to my daughter...I just told her not to fall for that-don't be tricked by your own brain. She continued taking the seboxone and later told me she thinks I was right. She said she's sure her brain was trying to make her stop using the seboxone. She's been clean from using heroin for 5 months now. I'm very happy with her progress...using the seboxone. Not so happy about the other drugs she occasionally uses such as [mushrooms, aderal, or weed] But I'll take what I can get at this point.
The prozac is causing her to think of suicide. She has an appointment with her psychiatrist to see if the dose needs to be increased or decreased. Since she started taking the prozac she doesn't know what's going on inside her head. She says she can't control those thoughts...They just appear out of no where...and for no reason. She said it was just strange...and she feels strange.
