I've just titrated off Depakote and am now taking Lamotrigine -- we are titrating that too -- but this one we're titrating up. I also take 450 mg of Wellbutrin every day, as well as 150 of Effexor -- I've taken those with only beneficial results and no negative side effects.
The big one is I've been taking suboxone, very small doses, like 1/2 a mg a day... and I've been doing this for about 3 years. And now I would like to stop. In fact I have stopped -- and I'm on day 2. My doctor tells me I should be feeling better in about a week.
Here's my Question: I've been suffering from loss of balance, loss of memory and tremors. Are these normal side effects to opiate withdrawal?
