I have been taking 12-16 mgs of suboxone now prescribed to me daily for almost six months. While I am still an addict I replaced my opiate and upper addiction with suboxone and energy drinks. I consume upwards of 5-6 drinks daily coupled with my dose of suboxone. Initially when I started the suboxone treatment I had very vivid dreams which I later discovered was the result of sleep paralysis. The dreams were very intense but after several months eventually dissipated. Now I have noticed they are back again. Also as I doze off to sleep I have what I can only describe as a mild lighting storm in my head. I have had a more severe version of this happen when I was using meth several months prior. It was so intense it felt as if my brain was being electrocuted and I was almost fearful to fall asleep for fear of waking up. I now attend 12 step meetings and although I have slipped up once in the past seven months (three weeks prior) certainly want to get off of the suboxone and lead a healthy and sober life. I know I need to cut down on the energy drinks but am very curious as to why this has been happening and if there is any chance of serious healthy risks. Thank you to anyone who can offer me some clarity. A.J.
