Suboxone withdrawal day 5

Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone withdrawal day 5


Avatar m tn For me, I was on opiates for almost 10 years, on suboxone for 5, so my withdrawal experience is probably much worse than you will have to go through, but I want to be honest so you know what to expect. Subs stay in your system for a loooong time, which makes withdrawal last longer as well. For me, it took a good 3 months before I felt close to normal again. I would plan on taking it easy for a couple weeks, 'cause it will take a while for your energy levels to return.
11379347 tn?1417701400 I'm on day 5 of suboxone withdrawal and take kratom for mild relief I got my self down to less than 1 mg of suboxone.I also take a 1 mg klonopin to help but only when needed.
Avatar n tn Can anyone tell me if they quit suboxone @ 2 mg / day and how long w/d lasted, and how bad it was.
Avatar f tn I was wondering when I would start to feel withdrawal symptoms from suboxone and how bad they will be. I have been taking 8mgs a day for about 4 months. My doc tapered me off this week. 2 days @ 6mg, 2 days @4mgs, 2 days @ 2mgs and today nothing. I feel the same. No major withdrawal. When will it happen? Does it take a few days to wear off? How long? Any advice helps. Thanks!
Avatar n tn I had been tapering way down for a week or so up until 12-4,then i went to the doc on 12-5,he put me on suboxone,and I HAVE BEEN CLEAN FOR 5 DAYS NOW!and really no cravings for hydro,i feel great and nothing but motovation to stay clean,this med is working good for me.I really hate the fact that you have to dissolve the pill though it tastes horrible.and he gave me some trazodone to help the depression and help sleep.
1842940 tn?1354492873 I've been on suboxone for years (4 or 5) and trying to get off. I am down to a quarter a day, but when I try to go below that or try to go a day or 2 w/out any I feel like hell (especially when i try to go w/out). I want off of this and I don't know how to do it and be able to get through the day. Any advice would be so appreciated. thank you! p.s. would starting a daily exercise program (something simple), like walking, help ?

1181804 tn?1333406405 I've been on suboxone for a year and my doctor and I decided that it's time to come off. I did a slow taper down to .5 grams per day. I'm on day 5 and can't stand the inability to sleep.Any advice on this and how long this is going to last? I'm super frustrated. Thanks for any feedback.
Avatar f tn HI. I am on day 12 of suboxone withdrawal. It has been hell. How much long will this be going on? Im not sleeping more than an hour or 2 a night. When I jumped off, I was down to 2mg a day. I haven't been able to function at all. No work, barely able to get out of bed. It isn't getting better. I have pretty much accepted that I have condemned myself to a life of this agony. Please help.
Avatar f tn People who have more w'd than they think is appropriate when stopping Suboxone forget, or don't know, what opiate withdrawal is like; it is well known that methadone withdrawal, for example, goes on for months and months. Heroin withdrawal tends to be shorter and more intense; the phrase 'kicking the habit' comes from the involuntary muscle movements during heroin withdrawal.
Avatar f tn maybe you should stop taking it 2 days before the last day of work because well in my case the third and forth day are the hardest then it give you a few days of being sick not at work
Avatar f tn I was prescribed to Percocet for 5 yrs. and started suboxone once withdrawls started. It was 8 mg strips and I was taking a quarter to half a strip a day. The first week went smooth but on the 7th or 8th day I started to feel a tingle sensation on the left side of my chest. I continued to take it for a week and the tingle would occur out of nowhere. I went to er because I was freakin out about it.
Avatar f tn I went to detox this time last year for a 5 day detox for use of pills for years..I felt fine coming home for about a month and then started hanging back out with the same people and so forth and said to myself 1 pill won't hurt then it moves to 2 and you know where I'm going from here. I started trying new drugs when my middle son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes a couple months ago.
Avatar f tn ive been on suboxone and ONLY suboxone for about 5 months now. i was pretty surprised at how bad the suboxone withdrawal was...i was okay for the first two days and after about 48 hrs i went into pretty intense withdrawal. i am a tiny girl though (5", 97lbs) and i don't know if that really makes a difference but i was taking a little less than a quarter a day so our dosage is kinda close. today is day 7 and i feel SOOO much better. still a little down but i know that's normal.
Avatar f tn I'm on day 7 of withdrawal from suboxone. I didn't really get to tapper off them. The withdrawal symptoms are absolutely unbearable. I just went and bought 5-htp and B-complex. I read that it helps with the anxiety. I'm waiting to see if it helps at all. I have a wife and two kids and I feel so useless. I can't help my wife with anything. She's trying her best to take care of me and the kids. Does anyone know what will help with the anxiety and the blurry vision.
Avatar m tn Hello, I've been on Suboxone for 4 years, and oxi-contin for 2 years before that, 10 days ago i decided it was time to get off of the suboxone. I started a catapres patch the second day, and the withdrawals were still bad, but tolerable. I took the patch off on the 7th day and on the 8th day I started to come back into intense withdrawal. The doctor gave me 4 patches but only becuase it comes 4 to a pack I guess? Can I put another patch on now and be fine?
Avatar m tn I have been taking Suboxone for 3 years, I tapered down to 2 mg a day from 24 mg a day. I want to quit. I took 40 10 mg norco's from 80 mg to 30 mg to maybe kick the suboxone off the receptors. I am on day 6 with no sleep and RLS. Do I really have to do two months of this to get clear? I do not think I am strong enough for that. Should I go back on suboxone and taper down a lot lower.? Thanks, I am in misery. Ben.
Avatar m tn I stopped 15mg a day of Methadone in May, and was given about 50 8mg Suboxone pills from a freind. After a month of taking one pill every 2 or 3 days, I started taking 1/2, and eventually 1/4 pills. When I quit I continue to withdrawal for days and days afterward. How long does suboxone take to get out of your system? Im on day 4 and things just get worse!! My doctor cant see anyone unless you make an appointment weeks in advance, school starts in 3 weeks and I am at a loss.
Avatar n tn But they still must do the work of getting their tolerance down, and that takes time and misery. It is not 'Suboxone withdrawal'; it is withdrawal from the opioids that the person has been using BEFORE taking Suboxone. The withdrawal from opioids generally takes a couple months. With Suboxone, the dose/response curve is not linear, but instead has a ceiling-like plateau.
Avatar m tn Hello. Suboxone has a pretty long drawn out withdrawal.. Unfortunately many of us suboxone users dont realize this until its time to quit. My best advise is to get down to even smaller amounts.. Like a quarter of a quarter.. or tiny crumb of sliver..then every other day.. You will probably have some withdrawal no matter what you do. Just brace yourself and hang in there.. All the normal tips for easing the withdrawal - lots of fluids, advil, hot baths, and exercise..
Avatar n tn used suboxone for about 2 weeks. started taking recommended 16mg/day, then started doing 8mg a day then eventually every other day and finally 9 days ago I took like 40mg at once stupidly to get a final high, or attempt to. i felt fine up until 2 days ago... i dont know how but i didnt have withdrawal til then... now i am EXTREMELY tired... like cant walk or do work for long periods of time... i get goosebumps as random as anything... hot/cold flashes, sweats...
Avatar f tn but he will be in day 5 detox and has asked me to be with him as he will not retain anything or be able to communicate properly. I used to work with this doctor years ago so we know each other. this doctors plan was to stabilze on the proper dose and wean slowly for many many months...of course...acepted conventional approach. thing is my son was not on the dose that worked for him long enough. I wonder what the doc will suggest 2 days from now. I wonder what my son will choose.
Avatar f tn It's surprising to me that there's so many people on this site who say they have experienced extreme withdrawal symptoms after they stop taking suboxone (even while completely following a doctor's plan). I've been on suboxone for almost 2 months now, but I've now started taking the suboxone sporadically. (Just an FYI, my dosage is supposed to be 16mg/day). I have gone two full days without taking any suboxone a couple of times now.
Avatar n tn I am also on day 40 with no suboxne and it has been a nightmare for me. I must say things do get better. I still have no energy and still don't enjoy the things I used to. Including food and pop, and work. Struggling this quarter in school and I know it from this. I also missed 1 week of work. The only light I see is this is the first time in 9 years on no pain meds or suboxne. I wish I could enjoy it more being clean but have no energy to get up still. Taking B vitiams and Tyrosine still.
Avatar n tn I've been on suboxone for 5 days now, tapering more and more each day. i started at about 1.5 mg's on wednesday night, 1 on thursday night, nothing on friday, then about .3 mg's last night. i probably only have about .3 mg's left, but i dont even want to take it unless i need to. Has anyone ever bene in this situation before? i really wanna know what to, how long til ill feel withdrawals (if I will) and if i do, how long til they peak, then eventually subside...
