    Default Suboxone Side effects??

    i have been taking one 8 mg suboxone tab daily. Everything was going fine for a couple of weeks, and suddenly, i start feeling symptoms that are like withdrawal several hours after every time i take suboxone. I did miss a dose, i was sleeping for a very long time, and went into withdrawal from the suboxone, so i took my dose late one day..and have been taking it on time every day from then on..this was pretty much when this occurrence started. so i cant tell if i need to double up on my dose to get enough suboxone back in my system, or if these are suboxone side effects. i just got off of opiates about a month and a half ago..40-80mg of oxymorphone or dope, whichever was available..i am trying to stay clean and just wanna feel normal. but now even suboxone wont let me feel normal. i dont understand why. every time i take a sub, about 4 or 5 hours later i get chills, sweats, the skin crawling feeling, tired, achy...i dont know if a thread has been posted about this before and im sorry if there has but i have to go out with my god daughter in a couple of hours and am feeling sick, i dont know what i need to do and am getting panicky, has anyone experienced this before, please help..?

    I don't know what's wrong but I do know there is no way you'd go into w/d taking one dose late when taking 8 mgs. a day. That is a VERY high dose, higher than anyone needs and the halflife of sub is 36-72 hours so it should hold you even if you take a dose late. You would not be in w/d after 4-5 hours, no way. You should never double dose because you took a dose late. Maybe you are having a reaction to the nalaxone in suboxone? THAT'S All i can think of because it isn't true w/d.

    vicachka ........ Bev is right about the likelihood to the naloxone reaction and I also posted on your other thread about the xanax. You need to make some changes to how you're doing this. God bless.

    Thank you : / I figure that I might be having side effects and definitely some moderate xanax withdrawal..I got so scareed and reality hit me so I am going to an appointment tomorrow to meet with a doctor to get some guidance on all of this, as well as a prescription for subs..I'm very determined to get off of both of these drugs..I'm afraid that the doctor I'm going to won't help me taper properly. Robert I know everyone asks u for help with sub tapering, so I don't wanna bother u with that too much (and I just wanna say that what u do on this website to help otamazing and gives me hope about the people in this world, there are still good sould like you out there) I think I remember seeing it written somewhere that u posted a general post about how to taper off subs, like a general post, but I don't know my way around the forums on this site, could u please direct me in how to find that or maybe post a link? : / thank you. I was trying to do everything on my own becvause I really had nothing and nobody but I am trying to do good for myself, I stopped the opiates, I found a good man who is willing to help me thru this and I am just looking for help and advice anywhere I can cuz I can't keep hurting myself anymore..thanks for your help.

    whatever you do, dont take too much at once.... the lower you start, the easier it is going to be to taper off...

    good luck

    i see you already are taking subs....

    you need to take it the same time every day.. and do not take more.... after you have gone a few days on 8mg, then drop to 6mg...

    8mg is quite a high dose... if you are still having troubles, then you should try to acquire subutex instead of suboxone....

    I just started saboxone on Tuesday afternoon after a 15 year Tramadol addictiction of 600 -1000 mg a day. It has been hell on earth. I did the fast from Monday till tuesday morning from Tramadolso the saboxone would work. Doctor perscribed 8mg strips 3 times a day. up until this morning I have been deathly ill fromwhat i say is overdose of it. This morning I actually called the makers of Saboxone too try too figure out how I am suppose too feel. The doctor I talked too from there told me that there should of been no way that that dose should of been given too me so high. That it is the max that there is and The doctor should of started me out at 2mg a day n ot 24mg a day too see how i was and if still had massive withdrawl that you work up from there. So I called my doc this morning and told nurse what was happening and she got a hold of the doc and told her to tell me too just go lower in dose where too just cut the 8mg strips into 3 and if thats too much then into 4. So between my doctor and the makers of Saboxone, there are 2 differant therios on how too do it. The Sabox Doc said that it is meant for once a day where you start low and work up till the right dose.
    I dont know if my doctor really knows anything or if this drug is pushed from him for some kind of kick backs.
    So I called doctor yesturday and told nurse what was going on.( It was actually the 1st time I thought i was actually going to die) I knew it felt like overdose. I coulndt contro anything i did. Felt like the worst withdrawl mixed with the worst high you could have along with non stop vomitting, could not control emotions,etc and just broke down with uncontrolable shakeing with being soo cold too hot and on and off etc.
    So now This morning I took 1/3 of the 8mg stripand still find its too much too which my doctor says too just cut them into 4 now. So I am lost for he says 3 times a day. Right now 7 hours after i took the Saboxone (1/3 of the 8 mg strip) I actually feel good. but with a little high and almost alot of i think is a heartburn feeling , and trying too have the office get a hold of the doctor too see if I ned too do 3 times a day . If I should take it now or wait? Because when I called the number for the makers of it she said that i shouldnt be doing differant doses at differant times nd it will screw me up if not always the same. Also that my doctor said too cut the strips when Saboxone people said that is not right for if i cant do it exactly every time then the dose is always changeing.
    Im at a loss and going too call a specialist in addictive medicine too see if they will even consult me on this for This has been the hardest thing i ever had too do and cant go through all this again.
    Must say sorry if I rambled on, or if any of this makes sense. Still feel a tad high and rushing a bit, but needed to get this out

    habanohal, make a new thread and ask Robert_325 in the tittle for help!! That is a ridiculous amount of suboxone to be taking and that doctor should loose his license on the spot, no questions asked!!! It also sounds like he might of put you in precipitated withdrawal! you have to wait a good amount of time before starting suboxone! Robert can probably have you good and stable under 4mg and even 2mg's.. 32 mg's is insane!!

    Please do this soon and Robert will be on some point today to help you! He has been a life saver around here and is also currently helping me..

    For now take as little as possible so you don't feel withdrawal.. take an 8mg strip and cut in half that's 2-4mg's pieces.. then take those and cut in half again, 4-2mg pieces, then cut in half al of those again, 8-1mg pieces.. now use those 1mg pieces and only when you start feeling bad (withdrawal) make sure to give them an hour to take affect before trying anymore.. do this until you can get robert to induct the proper way and you will feel much better.. you could even cut those in half again and it will be .50mg pieces..

    Suboxone is very potent and strong, if you don't want a long and hard recovery then take as little as possible to get through the day..

    Robert will be around soon, start your own thread with his name in the tittle and he will get to you 100%

    habanohal ....... I saw your post after fedupnow replied to you. Thanks fedup!

    Your dr is a complete idiot. That's the best thing I can say about him. You're lucky he didn't put you in the hospital. I have done this a long time with subs and I assure you that I can turn this completely around for you if you'll go along with my suggestions.

    The best thing to do would be to let me re-induct you. You've only been doing this for a little over two days so we would be better starting over than working off that 24mg dose. Please read the following link. Pay close attention to the INDUCTION section. I would have started you out at .5mg doses until you stabilized and you would have been fine at less than 4mg total. Let me know if you want me to help you do this properly. Read the link below and reply back to me. God bless.

    Thankyou! Ihave put calls into the specialist and now find out that they are not in tillmorning. My brothers wife is a nurse and has worked with this doctor that I want too see and can get me in first thing in morning.I have cut them into 4 but dont want too take any till i feel withdrawl comeing on which hopefully not till tomorrow.
    Though it worries me cause i have been reading the Suboxen affects and a litle while start too get a burning comeing up from my stomach too my throat, and feels like it is half closed.
    Now I have never been one too be a hypa condriak.. if thats how its spelled, but I go through the list of "call doctor " side affects and start too have them now. I do feel pretty decent though.
    I will read through your post Robert and at latest get back to the board tomorrow morning on how progress is going.
    I dont fear much of anything, but too go through this another time would be hard to do. Just want to get it right the firsttime.

    Thankyou all

    Craig
