So...if I read correctly, you were down to 2mg of subs when you jumped roughly 5/6 days ago? On it up to 8mg for 2 years?
IMO....your going to feel a few more ****** days before this is over, but you can do this! Many "horror" stories regarding suboxone is due to length of time taken, mg, and how we quit....did we taper or just go cold turkey. All of these issues come into play. I would suggest hot epsom salt baths as many times a day as you want. Taking 600/800 mg of Motrin won't kill you either. Try to eat as healthy as you can; lots of greens, fruits, vege's, chicken breast, etc...stay away from junk! I felt brief breaks when I was able to get good food in me (which wasn't alot at first)....gatorade and water! There was really nothing that made that ****** feeling go away for me (not like a drug would) so I will also suggest putting some earbuds in your ear and listening to soft, soothing music. I used anthem type music to keep me going. I also had a meditation CD of like a white noise that when I would play it, I would be able to get a little sleep.
The other thing I would suggest is possibly considering that maybe, your a type of person that can't do drugs??? LOL
I wish I was, but I'm not....I am an addict and I over do everything.
Thank you for the reply!! I'm on day 7.. Kinda bc it's only 1am here. I slept about 4 hours last night with a little help from tramadol 50 mg that I was prescribed before for two weeks and didn't take because i was on subsequent and didn't need it. I'm sure I just fukked myself over as I felt pretty rough on day 6. I swear im crying over the dumbest bs. I'm also crying over things I should have cried about months and yrs ago but was masked by suboxone. I like this feeling but I also hate it bc who really wants to cry while suffering like this?? You're right motye51 I've never been good at doing drugs bc before my boyfriend I had never even went as far as drinking a beer or smoking weed. Now im like hell ya pass the blunt. What is life? So right now im cold but I'm perspirating. Diareah which is literally my favorite part YESSS! ansy crawly legs which is also great. I have to work at 10am so this is gonna be fantastic. I've been eating at most twice a day.. I'm taking vitamins and I'm seriously just mentally and physically exhausted and I'm so afraid that I prolonged my withdrawal with the tramadol. Any knowledge on this??
Hey hun! You are doing fantastic! I was on 16 mgs for about 9 mos then weened down to .5 mgs. Then I jumped. It wasn't easy but could've been a lot worse if I jumped higher. I give you a ton of credit cuz I tried at 2mgs and couldn't handle it. Just keep doing what you're doing. I had ups and downs for a couple weeks and then one day I realized, hey, I feel good! I'm a year and 3 mos off. Motye said it best for things to make you feel a little more comfortable. You're 8 days now. You got this!
Where ya at lady?? Let us hear from you...this site brought me relief as well!!!
