Suboxone withdrawal remedies

Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone withdrawal remedies


Avatar m tn I can't take it anymore First thought when I wake up is to take my suboxone it literally controls my life and I'm sick of it!!! I know withdrawal is going to suck but I'm ready and committed to getting my life back in order. I heard from a friend that withdrawals can last months from long term suboxone use and that alone scares me I don't know if I'm that strong to suffer so long.
Avatar m tn While the people here are able to provide remedies to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and provide encouragement during detox - none of us are doctors and cannot establish a taper plan for anyone. As you have seen, this forum is a reflection of personal opinion I am surprised to see that you have been a member since 2007 considering that you said questions are not answered here and you ...
Avatar m tn I remember one member, look up dhodge2000 and read his posts and his experience with suboxone. He was a strong and adamant advocate of suboxone (while on it) at first and criticized everyone for giving sub a bad name, even became rude to others who have never been on sub but warned people against it.
Avatar f tn I need to ask what I should do or if I should do it. I have been on Suboxone now for a year and have had great sucees with it and not using other drugs. But as with any drug your tolerence increases so does your dose need to. Well when I see him I am afraid to tell him that for the past three months I've run out a week in advance and make up reasons as to come see him early which is not being honest with him. I dont feel Im abusing it , its just my current dose is 1.5 8mg. Strips a day.
Avatar m tn On day 6 of suboxone withdrawal. Did my research and got Clonidine, St. John's Wart, Same 400mg, Passionflower, Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin B 6, Immodium. I am able to function but I cant stop the "crawling out of my skin condition". Try to laugh, pray, exercise, sauna, eat 3 meals, I don't know how much longer I can take it. "Suck it up" is starting to lose its meaning with time. Been on subs for more than a few years. Lost count. I have an appointment coming up.
1800740 tn?1324240771 In December, I will have been on suboxone for a year. Meanwhile, I'm reading horror stories about suboxone withdrawal. Do you think I will have an easy time during wds? I haven't had any major problems while tapering other than feeling tired. I simply find it hard to believe that it is going to be easy!!!

Avatar m tn Read the Suboxone/Subutex FAQ's at the bottom of this Substance Abuse Community page. You can follow that until you get to 2mg. You are at a high dose and depending on how long you've used subs, you may want to stabilize there and do the rest of that taper at a slower rate. You will have to form your own schedule, as we cannot give schedules on this forum. Just remember that each dose lasts about 21 days and it accumulates over time.
Avatar f tn How long do suboxone withdrawals last? I only took it for about 2 weeks-I started w/ 1 8mg strip a day & then gradually decreased the amount over the last 2 weeks; however, I have used opiates regularly over the last 8 years. Prior to taking the suboxone I was taking 12-16 Norcos a day. Today is the first day without anything & I wanna crawl outta my skin!

Avatar n tn ” I withdrew from tramadol a few years back and was fine after 23-25 days. I have heard that Suboxone is so strong that the withdrawal period lasts a lot longer, but no doctor I have seen seems to know anything about this potent drug. Any information about the Suboxone withdrawal process would be greatly appreciated as this has already gone on a lot longer than I or my doctor expected. Thank you so much!
Avatar m tn I have been taking three 8mg pills of suboxone for about 3 years now and I am at the point now where I don't want to be a prisoner to this stuff anymore. I have stopped taking three 8mg pills and I cut back to one 8mg pill per day four days ago and so far it hasn't been very bad but I guess what I'm affraid of is that withdrawl is going to hit me hard soon due to the fact I had been taking such a large dose for such a long time.
Avatar m tn took my last1/2 mg of suboxone Sat.Feb 8th. Feeling crappy but still able to eat,bathe,etc. My question is how long should I expect to feel symptoms of withdrawal? my stomach feels fine but my head feels fuzzy,along with a slight headache.
Avatar m tn Been a suboxone for 5 or so yrs, 2mg for the last few years. But due to changes with my Dr. about ten days ago start lowering my dose. Im alittle below 1mg but have had a real bad time with depression.Have been taking a 250mg Milk thistle twice daily with food, a One A Day mens Vitamin, 2 Omega 3 540mg,and 450mg Saw Palmetto twice and all with food. The depression has been getting worse and the lack of sleep.
Avatar f tn I knew I didnt want to be on the suboxone for the rest of my life so I stopped going to her 11 months ago. I swear some of the damn Suboxone doctors are certified drug pushers them selves............. She did give me 3 bottles of suboxone and for 11 months I weaned myself down to what I thought I could handle, then I just flushed almost a whole bottle of them down the sink and said Ok IM done!
Avatar n tn You go through withdrawal with Methadone too..and it's still unpleasant.. Suboxone..also you have to deal with withdrawal. replacement drugs aren't usually meant to help you taper fast...i mean you might as well just taper with your drug of choice, what's the difference..Methadone incidentally is supposed to suck more..not as acute but withdrawal lasts longer. replacement drugs..are meant for a 6 month to 2 year you time to get your life in order..
Avatar m tn Hi, I just wanted to give you my experience with Subutex (same as Suboxone, but without the Naloxene which is added to Suboxone to prevent injection abuse) I, like you have been through withdrawal from opiates so many times I Iost count. I initially went in for Subutex last August and it felt like a miracle! The withdrawals were instantly gone, and I felt like I was alive. That was until I puked my guts out the next morning as a side effect! The intial dose of 12mg was a bit high for me.
Avatar f tn But for right now, to deal with your withdrawal symptoms, see if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep, Clonidine helps with the creepy-crawly feeling and helps stabilize the blood pressure. All of these medications will make your life easier during this time.
Avatar m tn just will not tell you (unlike Suboxone) that will help me get through the withdrawal side effects of taking 200mg/day or more of Oxycontin for over a year now? Trust me I have tried alot including Suboxone and tapering, nothing really works. Even rehab, made it through but then right back on after a month.
Avatar f tn I am now taking (not prescribed) 5-20mg methadone per day as I couldn't cope with some withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone is not available to me in New Zealand & my GP prescribed zopiclone 7.5mg for sleep. What can I do to get off methadone, minimising the terrible heart palpitations & breathlessness that are the only things I can't cope with? Please help as I desperately want off this drug!
Avatar m tn If there are things out there that help with the symptoms of withdrawal then why not take them? Whether it be Clonidine, Loperamide, Withdrawal-Ease or whatever; if it helps then it's worth it. Most people who are physically dependent on opiates either from trauma or some sort of procedure are simply afraid of the withdrawals. Then they keep taking opiates to stave off the sickness and eventually full-blown addiction presents itself. So, NO, it not just up to YOU.
Avatar n tn Or am I just setting myself up for withdrawal at a later date? Do the homeopathic remedies actually work? How long can I expect this to last? Thanks for sharing guys & gals.
Avatar n tn i have a addictive personality, and suboxone was not a COMPLETELY pain free withdrawal, but i am completely drug free and loving life right now.....i thank god for my support group, going through something like this can show you who your real family and friends are, and for helping me to overcome this disease!!!!! I KNOW that each and every one of you will look back on these dark days and wonder how you ever made it through, but then you will smile because you did!!!
Avatar n tn He went through the typical withdrawal symptoms the first week and is getting better everyday. However, he has these vomiting spells. Sometimes it's only once, other times, like last night, he goes on all night long. Is this normal withdrawal? He does have an extra sensitive stomach (perhaps from doing so many drugs) and vomiting isn't out of the ordinary for him. But I am concerned that maybe there is something more seriously wrong. Any feedback is welcome.
Avatar n tn any home remedies to help lessen the symptoms 4. how long will it take for the severe withdrawal to subside Please help me, i am so scared, this is so not like me, i can't believe this has happened and taken control of my life.
