Comment:
After 18 years on methadone and 3 on all pain pills & heroin I am better but still addicted to an opiate. Also withdrawing from 10 years of 8mgs of xanax a day. Down to 4 mgs but feel the suboxone should be used for 3-6 months before tring to detox the xanax. Very difficult, I don't feel hopeful on beating both. Withdrawal from suboxone without taper is more prolonged than heroin or methad ... Show Full Comment

I was surprised how quickly this medicine actually they start you on something called Sub something else, for a few days and then send you home with this.

Started at 6mg a day. Took myself off cold turkey - went insane. Do not lower your dose and play doctor. I am now down to 2mg a day. I take it, and about 45 minutes later, I feel better, emotionally as well. Concerned too, switching from one opiat eto another. Withdrawals are HORRIBLE. It DOES help pain, I use it for fibroids and endometriosis pain vs. other dangerous treatments.

DOES ANYBODY KNOW OF LONG-TERM SIDE EFFECTS? I WAS ON PAINPILLS FOR TWO YEARS AND SUBOXONE CURED ME. THE ONLY THING IS THE SIDE EFFECTS I GET ARE SWOLLEN ANKLES AND WHEN I SAY SWOLLEN I MEAN IT. ALSO I GET TIRED IF I AM SITTING IN CHURCH AND IT IS SO EMBARRASSING BECAUSE MY EYES FEEL LIKE THEY ARE ROLLING IN THE BACK OF MY HEAD, LIKE I AM DRUGGED!

Comment:
I was taking hydrocodone for neck pain and became physically addicted to it. I started on suboxone and immediately felt better. I am afraid to quit taking it now. I've been on it for almost 3 years. I take 4 mgs. a day.
