I'm coming off an over 4 year daily addiction to pain killers. I just took suboxon for 2 days to "clean out" my system. Now I'm on nothing. Where do I go from here being broke and jobless? I don't wanna go back to using. I need some answers. I also for the first time fell to the floor while shaking uncontrollably yesterday and smashed my head on the floor. I lost all control of my body and could not move or talk. was wierd to say the least. This was before I took the suboxon.
Suboxon? Yes or no for me?

I'm sorry. I fell out the day before I started the suboxon. My fear is that if I get on the sub. I'll be doing nothing more than substituting one for the other. Hense the prefix SUB, I'm sure.
Dude, you need to be under a doctors care! You were probably having a seizure when you fell down. Do you take any other drugs or drink? There are clinics that can help you get on suboxone, same as methadone clinics. You need help in beating this. Try going to the ER or look in the yellow pages. Let us know what's happening!
It sounds indeed as if you had a seizure! This sounds quite serious, please consider Suboxone, just taper quickly if that is how you want to do it.
I agree with the other responder, could you add any other meds that you are on or if you drink excessively, not trying to be intrusive, just want to help you better.
Keep us posted,
That does sound like a seizure, those are usualy more closely associated with benzo withdrawal, alcohol withdrawal, previous seizure activity, or a head injury. You may can take suboxone or subutex, but have the possible seizure checked out first. they don't like to give benzos with subs, the combo can cause respiratory failure. Subs do stop wihdrawal and opiate craving, therapy is also mandatory with subs so you will be less likely to relapse. Do have the seizure activity checked, that is not a regular opiate withdrawal symptom. Subs does not 'clean out ur system' and is not some quick miracle cure that makes u magically stop opiates after a couple of doses, it is considered part of long acting opiate replacement therapy. Properly used, it works but is not going to cause someone to have a seizure. There is a young guy on YouTube.com called Maple2609, and he is a subs patient who explains subs correctly, this may help u understand y subs are used and how it works. hope u r much better now, i will say some prayers 4 u.
