    Unhappy adderall to help suboxone withdrawl?

    I have been off suboxone for over a week and i havnt been able to move due to fatigue. went to the Doc today and he subscribed me some adderall. Does anyone know how long this fatigue will last? I was useing oxys for about 6 months about 150 mgs a day. I had been starting a cage fighting career before this nightmare and it has been impossible to train. Any advise or help would be appreciated. i just want to be back to normal. Are their any home remedies to speed this up?

    I know it's hard but can you start training again.Exercise is the best thing after opiate withdrawls as it helps stimulate endorphin production.Go back to a high protien diet and drink sport drinks like gatorade.Stay away from the so called energy drinks as they can add to anxiety.Good luck....Dave

    Thanks for the advice. I feel way better today. my only worry now is getting addicted to the adderall. my doc has me taking 20mg 2x day. I worked out today and felt about 70%. If anyone else has any advise on speeding this process up. Id love to here it.

    I tried Suboxone for my >>>>>>/oxy addiction and I just could not tolerate it. I hated the speedy, headachey feeling it gave me and I still felt very tired and had no appetite. The Doc adjusted the dosage both up and down and I still just could not tolerate it. Now I am on methadone maintenance and doing so much better. I guess I am lucky that I could not tolerate Suboxone but I know that methadone is a real bear to stop taking also and I will cross that bridge when I come to it. WHat I wanted to ask you was what kind of workouts you were doing? Do they involve a lot of cardio or are you mainly weight training or is a combo of both?

    I couldnt stand the way suboxone made me feel so I only stayed on them for 5 days. That maybe why my fatigue was so bad. The adderall has given me energy but I dont want to have a heart attack. Im training for a cage fight next month and the training is intense. I do alot of cardio and weights. I have had trouble sleeping and the cardio seems to be harder. Probably because my heart rate is higher than normal.

    The subonxone is the best drug in the world as far as I am concerned. Adderol makes no sense. You could actually take a couple of benadryl a day to get the desired affect. You need tons and tons of water and TLC. Massages, heating pads, etc......It all goes away and you will feel so good you will absolutely neevr want to take Oxys again.

    Boy I Can tell this this wasn’t a 2017 post! I’m assuming most of you guys are probably long gone. Suboxone is so addictive. The only way to get off them is to go back on to opiates. But not too much just enough to be able to handle that with drawl. That’s what I’m planning on doing because I’ve been on 1 mg for over year now and I cannot stop it even to save my life!

    You can do it. These posts were from roughly 10 years ago. If you need help getting off the subs there is plenty of help in the suboxone therapy sub forum. The great people there have helped me so much when I made my jump. I jumped from 1mg/day 45 days ago. Which is still a hefty amount of subs. It was a rough couple of weeks. But I'm here now and getting better every day. Have you looked at robert325 sub taper plan. It's the first sticky thread at the top of the suboxone sub forum. It tells step by step how to reduce yourself down to a minimal amount of sub then works in skip days and then jump. It really softens the landing so to speak. It calls for a 25% reduction every 4-7 days until you are stable at that dosethen at .25mg or lower make your jump. Yes point 25mg. Many people have used it successfully to get off this awful, crazy strong drug. I'd encourage you to start your own thread and see what we can offer you. It is do able. I can promise you that. This is a judgement free zone here, everyone is here to help you through this process. Good luck on your journey and welcome to the forum!!!
