Day 9 free from Subutext

All I have left is cold sweats and they are the worse. Does anybody know how long they can last?

Truly, it will matter how much subutext u were taking and for how long? My suboxone w/d lasted 3/4 weeks but i was on a decently high dose for about 7 yrs..... more info needed so we can give u more accurate info.

Most notice a turning point at 21 days, that is how long it takes for your last dose of sub to be less than 1% in your blood serum levels. The detox is mostly gone by then, but the healing of the brain takes awhile longer. It is so worth all of it though. Congrats on 9 days, you are doing awesome.

That's great that that is the only symptom left! Usually, folks find that healing sleep is the last thing to return. Sometimes, certain symptoms tend to come back in ever-lessening cycles. So, don't be discouraged if this happens. Detox isn't a straight vector. Just know that if you stay the course & have patience with the process that things will get better. Hydration, a healthy unprocessed diet, quality supplements, a positive attitude & exercise will definitely help speed your healing.

You're doing great. Hold Fast! :)
