I was taking suboxone
for 2 years and
felt that my doctor was not tapering me down properly. It was really expensive and
I no longer wanted to be dependant on medication, so I decided to quit cold turkey ( I was taking 12mg a day).
I went through HELL for 2 weeks (nausea, severe irritability, anxiety, hot flahes, cold chills, fever, sweaty palms, back pain, insomnia, and absolutely no energy) before anything started to ease up. I was in the ER because the symptoms were unbearable.
