WOW you are one brave soul!!! You have no idea how I respect you for how far you have come.
IMO I think your best bet is to find a suboxone doctor. Since you been off 8 days you can start subs right away! I would start off with 2mg! Doctors are known to over scribe this med. Don't listen to your doc. Listen to the info you find on here from the seasoned vets of this site! You may actually be good at 2mg if you find in an hour after 2mg your still not well take 2mg more. With subs less is more so try to stay as low as possible. It will be faster and easier to come off of.
There are stickeys and info on this site written by Robert 325 on how to tapper off.
If you think you can deal a little while longer. Check out some answers I have provided on this site there is natural meds you can take to help heal your brain and reverse the effects of paws... I always forget how much to take and some of the ingrediance. If I find the post ill come back and post it, I got it from a doctor who owns a detox that specializes in getting people off of opiates mainly methadone. The sooner the paws goes away the sooner you will feel A LOT better!
There are opiate receptors in your GI tract as well as in your brain and that is why the stomach gives us such fits in withdrawal. I didn't know that until I looked up withdrawal, can you maybe get rx'ed some methacarbomal and clonidine as well as your anti depressant. It is pretty normal to be depress and sorta emotionally flat lined when you are in withdrawal. Saying some prayers for ya.
