I've been on 8mg of subs for a week now. I take half a tab every 8 hours and im experiencing some issues, which i don't know if it's the subs or withdrawals. I was 60 mg of oxy and 25 mg of fents. The first 2 days were great i was feeling myself again i had waited 3 days of withdrawal be for starting the subs. A week in i have started to get some troubling effects. I found that my breathing is really shallow, i wake up drenched in sweat like I've just dipped onto a pool. I don't know if this is a side effect of the subs or withdrawal of opiates. Should i be in a higher or lower dosage of suboxone.
I was on subs 2mg cut into 5 so one 2 mg lasted me 5 days n was on for 3 months i stopped n am now on day 9. still going thru withdrawl but managable. i will still be going thru this fo 2weeks or more. just remeber that a slow taper is best hut dont stay on too long because subs have a long half life. n the breathing may be from subs. the sweating to but sweating comes from lots of things talk to ur dr about the breathing. this will b a long journey but as long as ur hrad is in it u will get thru this. its not easy but we put our body thru garbage and now is the time to get our body rid of it.
