Side effects of suboxone
212 Replies RSS
I have been on suboxone now for just under a month. I think it is an amazing drug, i have had no cravings or interest in returning to opiates, my drug of choice was oxy. I get up every day feeling happy, and am able to take on what ever the day brings me. I am also on lexapro for depression at this time. There is one problem after i take my dose, which is 8 mg. twice a day, I am extremely tired sometimes to the point where if i sit down I will nod off, so I keep moving and can usually fight through it. I am wondering do other people feel this way or does it get better the longer you are on it? Two other things that are sometimes very bothersome are dizzyness and extreme dry mouth. I just wanted to find out other peoples experiences. Thanx ## Hey yea I get the same nod as you, it starts ... ...

I would some like some input on the effects of taking suboxone or subutex long term. ## Suboxone and Subutex are opiates, so the effects of long-term use are similar to those of any other narcotic. Some of the most common side effects include: drowsiness, nausea, dry mouth and constipation. ## I've been on suboxone for almost a year now. The side effects of long term use is the same as if you were on pain meds. ## i want to know what effects does suboxone have on a pregant woman? Does the baby become depeant? Is it like the methadone withdrawl for the baby? ## The baby does become dependant. After birth, a baby will detox from it. Your best bet is to wean yourself off before giving birth. ...

I recently started taking subutex or same thing suboxone. When I take my dose 8mg and try to go to sleep i have very strange dreams.

I was just wondering if anyone else had these experinces or if anyone else knew if this was a normal side effect. ## yes,don't worry it will go away after a while you must have just started taking it it happened to me and scared the poo out of me it was more of a startling thing for me just don't take it before you go to sleep if ypu are noding off the it is normal at first but you will a just iam thinking you are just starting the med's?If not its ok it happens from time ... ...

Hello everyone, I was addicted to percocet for about a yr, i have degenerative osteo arthritis, extremely painful, have had a total knee replacement and am due for another, along with 19 operation bandaid fixes (all knee related) I also work full time, take care of a massive home (cleaning daily) and my 3 kids and husband.. Ugh the percocet really allowed me to live again, no pain, full nights sleep. But I knew I was dependant and I had to give it up.. I have such an insane life schedule that I couldn't do cold turkey as I know what withdrawals are like and I can't take time off work... I started suboxone, the doctor has me on 10 mg.. Yes it was a miracle for about the first week, but I'm experiencing some crazy crap... Seriously vivid nightmares that I can fully remember, e... ...

suboxone side effects and questions
3 Replies RSS
Hi. My girlfriend is a recovering addict and takes suboxone regularly (prescribed). Its hard for me to tell the difference between the side effects of suboxone and the dope. She stays up all night restless and cleans and gets moody often. She also takes Prozac and was prescribed topomax but does not take topomax. Can you tell me if this is normal? Also is it possible to feel high off of proxy or H while on suboxone? ## Unfortunately, nobody would be able to answer your first question with any certainty but your GF, simply because side effects to the same meds may vary significantly among different people. There are certain tell tale signs that should make you suspicious...but then I'm sure you wouldn't be asking this q if you weren't already. That means you are at a point wh... ...

A few months ago I posted some concerns about the medication Suboxone. The side effects I had a few months ago are different now that I have been this drug for nine months. Started at three 8mgs aday, never could take that much. I only take one 8mg a day for about a month now. I am concerned, my body constantly hurts, headaches can be unbearable at times, deppression can kick in also. This had been a wonder drug for me considering how much my life has changed in such little time, I feel human again. The problems I am having are due to the side effects, fatigue can be overwhelming sometimes. I don't want stay on this drug much longer, I am scared it will mess my brain chemistry up more so than it already is if I continue my dosage. I don't want to relapse and fear coming off of t... ...

depacote side effects
1 Reply RSS
I just started depacote for bipolar 2. I'm also taking suboxone 16mg and have been for 2 months. The first week I was taking 500 mg depacote and just started on 1000. I'm experiencing severe diareah and gas like never before. I'm also plagued with kidney stones and these are symptoms I've experienced with stones, just not as bad. Just curious if anyone has experienced symptoms like these soon after starting or upping their dose of depacote. Should I take my dose tonight or wait and see what's up?! This is horrible! ## Hello, Timmy! How are you? Those can be normal side effects of Depakote, especially with a rapid dose increase, such as the jump from 500mgs to 1,000mgs. However, it's usually transient and only continues for a short period of time. You may also exp... ...

No energy at all.think its all in my head.any advise. ## Hi Number 3! No, it's not in your head. That's one of the side effects of being off suboxone. It can last awhile, every one is different. How long were you on the suboxone for? Other than lack of energy, how are you feeling? ## New here. I have been on Subutex for 7 years. I am trying to get off. It has been 5 days since I had any and weaned before that. I STILL feel like my body is made of lead. I'm so close but can't handle this lack of energy and my legs hurt..... I'm so tempted to call the doctor for an appointment to get back on. Any suggestions? Thanks, ## im 45 days off subs. i jumped at taking 8 to 12 mgs a day & was on them for 5 yrs. my energy level is still pretty low but not as bad as it was. yo... ...

is a 4mg tablet of suboxone a half of tablet or a whole tablet...could someone please explain this to me...8mg 2 mg what is what?? ## There are 2 dosages available, which contain the Buprenorphine and Naloxone, one is a 2mg/0.5mg and one is an 8mg/2mg, so yes, to take 4mgs, you'd have to take half of the larger tablet.

8 days ago I quit suboxone not taking any at all for 7 days and on the 7th day I had such high anxiety I folded and ended up taking 2mg of suboxone. I know STUPID! Anyway all of the bad symptoms were pretty much gone, just bad anxiety. Does this mean I am gonna start my withdrawl all over??? I was only taking 2mg a day for 6 months! ## Hello, HorseLover! How are you? You may experience some more withdrawal symptoms, but likely not as bad, since you only took one dose. Have you consulted your doctor? They may be able to prescribe something you can take for the anxiety, while stopping it. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ...

Suboxone & zanax
2 Replies RSS
Is suboxone & zanax dangerous to take together? ## Hi Anne, Based on my research, there are potentially dangerous drug interactions listed between Xanax and the buprenorphine found in Suboxone. From what I've read, using either of these medications together can increase your risk of developing serious respiratory depression, buprenorphine overdose, coma, and even death. Is this combination something your doctor prescribed to you? If so, he's really putting you at risk for some potentially life-threatning side effects. You may even want to consider switching doctors to someone who knows more about drug interactions; if not but for your own safety. I hope this helps! ## Thank you so much for answering my question about suboxone & zanax! Yes my doctor dies give me both... ...
