I understand you wish to talk to Robert325. He is a great resource. I will try and contact him for you.
In the meantime, yes, it is possible that 16mgs a day is too much. You may need to cut back to alleviate the insomnia and lack of appetite. It is best if you contact your prescribing doctor as soon as possible to explain your symptoms and get his advice.
I'm glad the precipitated withdraws have subsided. It may take a few more days for your body to adjust. A week for induction period is not unheard of. Hang in there and I'll try to reach Robert.
Peacekeeper, if you just started the suboxone, there can be a 2 week adjustment period, not everyone has that, but some do. If you can, don't take the second dose later than 3 pm, it can keep you up if you do. Please call your doctor when they are in the office and let them know that you are having difficulty. Since I am not your doctor, I can't tell you that you are on too high a dose, but, you may need a drop down in the dose, that the doctor will have to call. Saying some Prayers for you and your daughter. I found that at first, I had to eat only foods that were not really hot or really cold, and light stuff, like yogurt and fruit. Hope you feel better very soon. Robert will contact you, hang in there.=
