... 3 months. About a month ago she started experiencing the following: lower to mid backache (she cries out because she cannot sit up straight in bed she feels like someone or something is crushing her ribs together), swelling of ankles, fingers, cannot bend them. Severe abdominal bloating and in constant pain. Has anyone experienced these symptoms or aware if Suboxone causes these symptoms? Doctors keep taking blood work and finding nothing
I was on suboxone for 2 1/2 years and noted that any side effects I had lessened or disappeared when I tapered down. I am going to ask you to hit comment and answer some questions. Is she on the new suboxone film? Did she have a medical condition that caused her to develop an addiction to pain mes? What dosage is she on? Is she on any other medications? I did have some minor swelling on subs, nothing like what you have listed. Some on the film are complaining of finger, hand, wrist pain. No one I know ever had anything like this. I would definitely let the doctor who prescribed this know and continue treatment and testing with a new doctor if the first one finds nothing. Can she reduce the dose some to see if any of it goes away or gets better. This sound like either an extreme reaction to it, or something else is going on. You can find a list of side effects here under the clickable banner, drugs a to z and also look suboxone up on wikipedia and ask a pharmacist, they are the true experts on meds. I will keep her in my prayers.
Is she constipated? I know that sounds stupid but Ive been taking sub for 3 months now and Ive been experiencing all of above but its due to constipation. Especially the abdominal bloating with pain and the back pain. I have mild swelling only at the end of the day because I haven't been able to use the bathroom so I guess my body is hanging on to a lot of water weight.
