Was today the first day you took suboxone? I slept the whole day my first day. It gets better.
BUT the first day my doc had me take 16mg. After reaching out for support here on the boards I decided to take less. So the last two days I've only taking 8mg and feel much better. Becareful your not on to high of a dose.
As UNLVGRAD indicated, she started on too high of a dose at her induction. Always start with lower doses and work up from there. It may take some time but you will start to feel better soon. Maybe your dose is too low and you need to check with your doctor. Please make sure your doctor is knowledgeable about this medication. Many doctors are prescribing subs at too high a dose, and really don't have a good plan of weening off some day. Take care deinflorida and hope you feel better soon!
as a long time subs patient, i agree that most patients r put on way too high a dose. g trust Robert-325 more than anyone regarding subs and he says NOBODY should take more than 1 eight mg tablet per day. I believe him implicitly. Thanks to him I was able to taper and am working hard to get off of subs. u can talk to him on the forum if u need to. u will have energy and b comfortable at the same time if u are on the right dose. many will also talk to u here, please let us know what dose u were rx'ed and how high a dose of opiate u were on. pattishan61
