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?
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
