Ive been talking to a person who ive grown quite close to and Im worried about him because he jumped from 10mg of subutex 10 days ago and hes absolutly miserable. I live in California and he is in Australia so there isnt much I can do but I want to know, how much longer do you think he will be going through this? The first 6 days he was mildly going through withdrawals then he hit day 7 and it seems like hes suffering so bad. It breaks my heart because hes trying so hard.. took off 3 weeks of work.. Im just worried he will be feeling this way for awhile.
Has anyone jumped from 10mg before? How long until you think he will start feeling better? I wish I could bring him some soup and a hug :(
He may need much more than soup and a hug.........I am assuming that this is non-Doc related since any Doc would lose his license for acting that way.........wd's may take weeks to get over the physical part and months to get over major and then minor mental parts such as depression. You better do some reading on the Health Pages concerning sub withdrawal - just put it in MedHelps search engine - it will surprise you! All the Docs are pushing this as "painless withdrawal" - wrong. Do your homework well ...... and good luck to him!
shizza im in nz, all i know is im on subs, and have tapered right down to .25 mg, and even then im havin trouble skippin days.
so 10mg is way too high to jump off.
hope he is ok. good luck
just1kiwi on subs also
thank you so much for your concern (you'll never stop thinking of me will you)? everyday is getting a "little" bit better.
im going in and out of feeling ok and miserable!
im sorry, but im not "sure" if i can do this!
the days are getting bearable, but the nights are a nightmare! i cant stop these spasms and they're waking me up each night! then its hard to go back to sleep, plus my coughing/choking! i hate waking up when its still dark! i feel much better when its warm and sunny. i need some fresh air (ive been indoors for 11 days)!
i want to take your advice and go for a 30min walk then have a bath... but i feel scared to leave the house and people will look at me and think i look like a mess!
but ive made it through 11 days and im just counting each day and hope that they will pass quickly.
if im not well in 12 days... there's no way im going back to work!
but before then i need some anti-depressants to help me to face the world! (or therapy)
you say that you want to give me soup, ice cream, and a hug...
i want to give you my heart...
and as funny as this will sound... i think "i love you" >=-)
What can I say? I'm a sucker for getting you better lol
I wish there was someone out there who could tell you when it'll be over instead of saying what we know. Your so far in. There's no what ifs. Just this moment. I wish you'd try something for sleep on that message I sent but I'll write you on our ongoing message :-P
so I ask again... Anyone have advice? He's jumped off and there's no turning back. He knows it was a large amount. Now it's just about moving forward and reaching for that finish line...
I know nothing about sub except from what i have read. I have heard that once you get down to that last pills you need to start taking slivers at a time. The lower you go makes it easier to cope. I know he is so far in to this and I"m sure he doesn't want to take anymore but if it gets too horrible, it may be a route worth looking at. Does your sub doctor know what you have done? Maybe try and get in with him and see what he says. Hang in there and remember that here soon each day will get better and better.
Sorry I couldn't be much help. I am for you in any other ways I can be even if it is just for support and motivation. Have you checked in to the amino acid protocol? It really helps speed up the process in recovering our mind and bodies. Hang in there.
Best of luck!
