If the suboxone is making you tired, then you're on too high of a dose. Decrease your doseage and see how you feel. Remember, you will not feel the effects of the new dose for a couple days, because Suboxone has what they call a "half life", which means that it stays in your system for a couple days. Keep reducing it little by little until you feel normal and not tired. Suboxone has a very good success rate for people that get off it. The trick is to stay on it long enough to change your addictive behaviors, and then start to wean off. Get as low as you can before you stop, and you should have little or no withdrawls. People literally get down to taking crumbs of this medication before they stop. If you just stop the percs, deal with the withdrawls, it'll be over in a couple weeks, but you have a higher chance of replapsing, because you didn't allow your brain to heal, and create new ways of thinking. Drug/Addiction free ways of thinking. Best of luck to you, keep us posted.
