Hi Guys. Tuesday night was the last time I had taken opiates. I was taking around 480mg Codiene per day. Yesterday (Wednesday) at 9am I took 4mg Suboxone, then an hour later I felt dizzy and sick. At around 6pm I took the last 4mg and felt the same. Today (Thursday), the pharmacist gave me the whole 8mg to take at once. Well, once again, after an hour the dizziness was very mild but the sickness was horrendous and I couldn't stop. I can only describe it as being on a fair ride and not being able to get off. My pharmacist said that this could be due to me starting the subs too soon (*not sure what this means). My question is - has anyone else suffered this, and if so, how long am I looking at? I've had to take time off work, and Christmas is in a few days. This is very new to me and I am ashamed I am here, so any help is much appreciated.

Taking this medication too soon after taking opiates can throw you into precipitated withdrawals, because Buprenorphine takes a stronger hold on your opiate receptors, which causes the other opiates to be kicked out. You may not be on a high enough dose to stave off the withdrawal symptoms. Usually, you have to wait until you are in full withdrawals, before taking anything containing Buprenorphine.

Additionally, since it is also an opioid, it can cause side effects, such as dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and headache, according to FDA reports.

Thus, it could be either issue, or both, causing your symptoms.

It’s been a few days, since your post, how are you doing?

I'd like to add a link with more details on Suboxone for others who might have similar questions. DailyMed really provides a lot of information.

There is, however, no reason to be ashamed, we all make mistakes, and there are things we all need help with, at one time, or another. The most important thing is that you have faced your problem, and are getting it under control, which is something to be proud of, it's more than some people ever try to do. :-)
