This is my first post
I have been taking Buprenorphine (Subutex) for about 8 months now. If I take more than 4mg a day I get Edema which turns into Celluitis. My Dr. has confirmed this and has 3 other patients out of 100 also with the condition from Buprenorphine. The other 96 patients he has takes Suboxone and they do not show symptoms. The reason I take Buprenorphine vs. Suboxone is purely financial.
I've attached some pics of what it's doing to me. I stand on my feet much more than I sit so I know that is a problem as well. But when I stop taking Buprenorphine, my legs clear up good as new. Basically I'd like to find out how many other people this is happening to and maybe a possible way to counter it? I end up taking antibiotics and water pills to hell get the swelling and pain down.
Thanks a bunch!
