He "occasionally" takes a piece of a suboxone 8 mg - so maybe 2 mg a day or every other day in the morning and occassionally takes a xanax or lorazepam. Well, he always seems to be in a daze, forgets things all over the place, always tired/sleepy but has insomia, is irritable, as well as low to zero sex drive and some sexual dysfunction (loses erection). Could all of this be caused by taking a low dose occassional suboxone on a long term basis? Would the effects of the 2 mg taken in the morning last into the night - like a pill hangover? Please help. Just need info or if I should look into some other health problem causing these symptoms. Personal experience would be helpful.
He's using more then just recreationally I can tell you that. Suboxone is not usually abused as it doesn't get you high but what may be happening is he's run out of his opiate and takes the suboxone to ward off the withdrawls and cravings. It also sounds like he's definately abusing benzodiazapines (xanax, lorazepam). You need to get to the bottom of this quickly so that he can either get some help or give you time to get the hell out... Good luck..Dave
i dont think it is the suboxone.i take 2 8 mg suboxone every morning and i have had no problems in that department. but ive only been on it for a week..but you need to be worrying about the mixing of benzos with suboxone.my dr made me stop taking my klonipin.he could not say it enough.he kept telling me that that mixture will kill you,he told me he had 2 patients who died because they where mixing the benzos and suboxone... when i read your question i knew i had to answer..so please get him to stop mixing like that.he will die eventually.im not codoning the use of drugs but if he has to use,make him pick one or the other.or he may not wake up one day... sorry to be so harsh i just dont want to here about a death .i felt i had to warn you because if i didnt,i would feel at fought if something happened..so tell everyone you know who is mixing it is super dangerous.good luck
