I took 16 mgs everyday for the past 2 yrs and before I stoped I had myself down to 8 mgs and so far, Ive been sleepy but unable to sleep had a headache for the past 2 days, hot one mintue cold the next although the physical pain isnt as bad! Ive came off every durg thier is and so far subxone has little physical pain although I feel as if I may throw up any mintue and I dont wanna eat a thing!Can someone tell me how long I will feel this way?
did your dr tell you to jump off at 8mgs? How long did it take you to taper from 16mgs to 8? It is recommended to be withdrawal free from a suboxone jump, you must at least get down to .5 and skip a day between doses of .5 mgs. Suboxone withdrawals are known to hit 3 to 5 days after the last dose. Can you get back on and taper down properly. What made you jump at such a high dose? It could take a few weeks to a couple of months for subs wd if you jump at that high a dose. Not trying to scare you, just make you aware.
