82 hrs into withdrawl(withdrawal) off bupe/vics

I have been on suboxone for 7 years. I took my last one 7 days ago, but then went on a vic bender for 4 days. I am feeling better but still have the RLS and it is driving me crazy. What helps for this besides the hot baths and walking?

Sorry I can't help you, perhaps you can help me. I recently stopped going to the methadone clinic, and found a Dr who is tapering me down, he said I should try suboxone. What are your thoughts on this? I mean I started the methadone clinic cause of Lortab, should I move to silicone, I read the transition is painful?

what dose did you stop the suboxone at? did you taper down?
please cut your sources so you don't relapse.
you can take a magnesium/calcium supplement.
eat bananas, you can wrap your legs in a heating pad or ace bandages.
you can try hylands restful legs, an otc supplement.

you are attending support groups, na,aa, celebrate recovery to help prevent relapse?

@purple4green,
what dose of methadone are you at? what was the highest and how long have you been on it?
I would just suggest continuing your taper of methadone and then stopping.
switching to suboxone just prolonging the process.
you have to get down to 30mgs of methadone and then wait a few days to switch and yes you have to be in pretty active withdrawal to begin the suboxone if started to soon you precipitate withdrawal and bring on severe
withdrawal.
