i was on methadone 3x10mg plus roxicodone (oxocodone fast release) 3-5 @ 30mg/day. I stopped methadone several days ago and roxi a day and a half ago before starting subutex treatment today. I did not go into rapid w/d but feeling lousy now. I took 20mg of sub and feel a partial w/d like a weak flu and general lousiness. can't sit around and just want time to pass so I feel better. Does Anyone know if I am going to feel good anytime soon or is this or something similar in store for much longer time? will I feel better tomorrow and even further better in next coming days? please let me know as I am really doubting if I can carry this on if its going to be this way. Thanks a mil.

My husband went through a similar scenario. DO NOT GIVE UP! It does get better. Give yourself at least a couple weeks; then, decide if you are having any side effects from the subutex. Purpose to strengthen your overall health, drink lots of water with a healthy diet. Hope this helps a bit.

you will not feel good. that stuff that you took suboxone is bad stuff and will through you into bad withdrawal. Methadone takes a long time to get out of your system. You need to get off the roxi with help of methadone then wean your self off of that. I sure hope this helps....lI've been there, it is bad new. good luck

been there - so unpleasant - that general malaise - it feels like my whole body is burning - hot baths, ibruprofen, valium if possible helps and time. just treat it like a bad flu and you will turn a corner and feel better provided your not suffering from any chronic illness good luck

Yes, the withdrawal symptoms will gradually improve, it just takes a little time, they will taper off a little each day.

Subutex contains the active ingredient Buprenorphine and is an opiate, so it may cause similar side effects, such as nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation.

Re: silent cloud (# 1)
I agree!! I'm on Suboxone for pain & I guess because it's so long-acting, it's takes awhile to get in your system.

Well why or how. I never heard of 20mg subs..did you split them up yourself? I take buprenorphine not suboxone, subutex 8mg x 3 day. My brand of choice is Rhodes the best that's out there as far as buprenorphine, subutex goes. .. now I never took methadone or roxicone but I do know from day one I never thought if I made the wrong decision..either way all 3 are heavy medications...maybe your dose is not right..I never heard of 20mg
