My husband has been taking suboxone for over a year now. His last dosage was 8 mg. However, last month he had a tooth pulled and developed "dry socket". He took up to 16 mg a day to ease the pain from his tooth. As a result of this he ran out of his monthly script. He called his doctor to get some relief and all the doctor did was chide him for using up the script. As a result of this, he has been "cold turkey" off the suboxone for four days now. He is in extreme pain. He feels very weak. He has been sleeping most of the time but even then his pain is very acute. My question is, "how long will this continue for him and what can I do to help him?" I feel like the doctor has failed him and it is so hard to see him suffering. Any suggestions would help. Thanks
