Fluid retention Suboxone

Suboxone definitely causes fluid retention in some people.  I was put on a very low dose (1mg twice a day) and after  2 months I have noticed ankle swelling, joint pain in knees, legs, fingers/hands and feet.  I gained 6 lbs and all due to fluid.  When I decrease my dose down further I lose some of the fluid.  I would hate to have to be put on a diuretic and 43 years old and no real major health complications.  Also-why do doctors recommend twice a day dosing???? I am going down to once a day and try to get of.  Side Effects are not worth it to me.


This discussion is related to Edema r/t Suboxone therapy?.

I agree; probably time to taper off. I don't know why the dose is twice a day or why it's such a tiny dose...but that's too much fluid. That's for sure!
