It just depends on what fillers and excipients they use in them, there is no specific size that they must be, as long as they contain the full dose they are supposed to. The size itself really means nothing.

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.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Why did you go all pharmacy tech on us at the end there? Not helpful at all! In fact you didn't really have anything useful to say.

Do not take suboxone!!!!!! I was taking about 5 oxycodone 30 mgs a day costing me $125 to support my addiction. I was terrified of withdrawing since I never experienced a withdrawal in my life. I found someone who gave me suboxones so I was excited that I would no longer have to overdraft my bank account anymore and wouldn't have to withdraw. I started cutting the strips daily and would take a 2mg piece in the morning before work and a 2mg piece after work. I no longer felt tired, I was able to save money again and I thought I was sober and doing great. Then after a year of taking them I weaned myself down to only taking 2mg in the morning so I could have energy for work. Then the summer came and I had a 3 week vacation so I decided to stop taking them. Well let me tell you that I lost 20 lbs, had massive headaches, night sweats and felt freezing cold throughout the day when it was 90 degrees out. I literally looked and felt like I was dying. After 21 days of torture it was time for me to go back to work. I began to panic because I was physically unable to get out of bed unless I ate at least 2 5mg percosets. So I tried doing that for my first week back at work which was now days 22-26 and on my first day back I had to run to the bathroom because out of nowhere my stomach erupted and diarrhea was coming out everywhere. I then took pepto bismol and after 15 minutes in the bathroom my stomach began to feel a little better. Then around noon the exhaustion I felt was so unbearable I felt as if I had mono. I continued going to work like this for an entire week until I started reading blogs of other people's horror stories and thats when I realized that I didn't wean myself properly off the suboxone and that a .25mg piece is equal to 150mg of morphine. So here I am a year later down to .25mg of suboxone still trying to come off and waiting for my 60 day summer vacation to finally be rid of this nightmare. So unless you want to be on suboxone the rest of your life, endure daily stomach pains and eventually destroy your liver I advise you to just wean off your pain medication and withdraw from that. If I could turn back time I much rather have withdrew for 7 days then go through a 60-90 day withdrawal off suboxone. Its just a way for the pharmaceutical companies and doctors to make billions of dollars off of people who are desperate to become sober.

Im just trying to warn people of how terrible the withdrawal is. No one should be on suboxone for maintenance unless they want to be on them the rest of their lives. They should only be taken for 5 days the most. Im just trying to help people so they don't have to go through the nightmare I am going through that i wouldn't wish on my worst enemy!

I've seen people go from the brink of death to leading productive lives because of Suboxone. I myself was on a path to destruction before I found this stuff, spending well over $1000 a week feeding my addiction, Suboxone has given me my life back. When the time comes I will get off of it but only if I need too. Suboxone has been approved as a maintenance drug which means if necessary I can take it for the rest of my life like a person who needs insulin or any other maintenance drug out there. When it comes time to get off of it, if it ever comes to that point, I will be ready and do it right and if I have to be uncomfortable for a little while then so be it. It just bewilders me the amount of people that come up with their own uneducated methods of getting off of this drug incorrectly and then try and blame the drug itself for their stupidity.

Also for every horror story I have read I have also seen a reason for it I.e jumping off at 4mg 2mg etc. do some research I personally know of at least two people who got off at .25mg with a few vitamins some clonodine and minimal WD. Do some research do it right and perhaps you wouldn't suffer for your ignorance.

Its not just MY experience. Why don't you google suboxone withdrawal and see what comes up. Im trying to save people who are "ignorant" enough to believe their doctors who are using them as guinea pigs and destroying their brains! The dr whose getting money everytime they write you a suboxone strip is not going to warn you about withdrawals. Just be careful and stop being so defensive. All you suboxone know it alls are in for the biggest wake up call of your life! Try to stop taking your suboxone for a week and then talk. Until then ignorance is bliss.
