... My pain management doctor put me on 8mg Suboxone 3 times a day for pain. When I lost my insurance I could no longer afford the Suboxone so the same doc changed me to Butrans patches, 20 mcg/hr. It has been 4 days since this change and today, Thanksgiving, I have cried all day for no apparent reason and my pain level has shot up. Could I be having withdrawals? This is the first time I have had to ask a question, however, I do not know where to turn
Dear Cap'n, please our dr about subutex, they are available in generic, they are same as suboxone without naloxone. I am guessing it might be withdrawal, as although it is bupenorphine in the patch, you went from a high dose of pills, 24 mgs per day, down to a low steady dose from the patch. Subutex will still be 8 mgs, just no naloxone. Bless you, call dr asap. Patti
