I have been weaning off Suboxone. My dr. is an idiot so I can't call him. I feel like I am going to pass out. I have the worse case of the flu symptoms. I have an ice pack but I feel like I am sweating. I'm really scared. I took another 1/2 of 8mg film . I haven't even been on it a month. Could I be w/d so early? Thanks.
It sounds like w/d to me. I`m going through the same thing with methadone right now and my doctor is also and idiot. Are you tapering small amounts? Are you taking the suppliments? I`ve been taking the suppliments in the Thomas Recipe and it has helped me a lot. Hang in there as someone else that knows more about it than me will be on to better answer your question. Hand in there.
if you're having flu-like symptoms, then you're more than likely in withdrawal.
Are you tapering? Many people on this forum are doing sub tapers right now. I'm not one of them and I have no first-hand experience with subs. Stick around and you will find the answers here. In the meantime, get plenty of fluids and vitamins, treat yourself as if you have the flu.
I have been taking between 12 mg and 16 mg a day (mostly 16 mg) for about a month. I am already getting withdrawal symptoms between doses. Yes it can and does happen that we are getting addicted so quickly to Subs. I am so impressed with how you are tapering. Take it a bit slower, because the changes in amounts is so hard on our bodies.
It did go down when I took the second 1/2. I just have not felt well all day. Still very dizzy. I did call the dr. and he said to go down to half a 8mg dosage tomorrow. Hopefully that will help. I can't even drive at this point.
Wow that doesn't seem right, well do what he says and just do 1/2 tomorrow or even 1/4 twice a day and see how it goes. They really did start you on too high a dose and maybe at 4 mgs you'll do better. Not sure about the films but the pills come in 2 mgs so maybe he can switch you to those and start slow. Good luck to you!
I called the dr. to see what he might say. He actually said to go from a 8mg film to a half of 1. I read that it could take a few tries with the adjustment of doses during maintenance.I don't want to go back to Lortab but I also don't want to stay on these for long. I'm not sleepless, all I want to do is sleep which seems different then others are saying.
He's telling you to only take 1/2 so thats 4 mgs and it does take a little bit to find the right dose. If that's still too much you're going to have to go lower, maybe all you need is 2 mgs. Really hope you start ferling better real soon that suc&$!
