Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone zombie


1626629 tn?1329425929 I'm in day 2 of suboxone program. I know that everyone here is so much more accepting of a CT but I have my reasons. My husband lost his job last year therefore I am the only one bringing in income. For me to take off work is impossible...yes I'm one of those who takes care of my self last probably why it was so easy for me to get myself into this mess to begin witH. I chose this program in hopes that it will push me in the right direction.
Avatar m tn I have been sober for two years and have been off suboxone for well over a year. Why am I so sluggish and have NO energy since I have stopped suboxone? I am a shell of what I used to be. I used to be very active...ride my bike religiously and now I find it hard to go up the stairs and find excuses not to. Please...someone tell me what to do. It has been over a year and I am pretty much a zombie. This is not me. I know myself physiologically and it is not all depression. Cant stress that enough.

1337425 tn?1278177587 as in zombie .;.. energy ... zombie .... energy.... way better than total zombie at least I started going to a pain clinic for traumatic head injuries right after the accident, and unfortunately they closed that down after about a year. Since that time I've probably been to 20 different doctors trying to find relief. I'll make it thru this somehow!
Avatar n tn I looked talked to my doctor about switching from Methadone to suboxone. She said as soon as you take the suboxone you go into full blown withdrawals and continue to have them. So she is tapering me off the methadone. There is no easy way out with this drug. Trust me I've tried, I was on 100mg/day and am now down to 92mgs. it is a very slow process, and you get slight withdrawals.
556614 tn?1215840031 So I confessed my addiction to my husband and went to an addiction doctor. He put me on 2mg of Suboxone twice a day. It seemed to really help at first. Then I became itchy, dizzy, and SUPER tired. I'm not sure if I should be concerned about that or not. Is it because I am taking to much? Anyone who knows please help!
Avatar f tn I'm not being zombie this summer. I'm in debt. I'm scared. I wanna have his baby one day, never like this. I need hope please. We looked into suboxone , he's taken before. If we ween off a little first, take lie doses of suboxone ge can give me lil doses ? I take half what he does ..
Avatar f tn /day oxycodone for a few years) How am I supposed to feel on day 2 of suboxone? I slept the same as always last night; very I am going through a myriad of different sensations/feelings/thoughts. I tingle all over. I am not sick. I am like a zombie. Very out of it. I am on a 21-day schedule. Then I will be off the sub as well. But when will I feel better?
Avatar f tn I am an addict to suboxone. Suboxone was made to help with withdrawls from my oxycontin addiction. Not only does suboxone act as a back up drug, it also is horribly addictive and the withdrawls are worse in my personal opinion. I really want to kick the drug and become drug free but can't seem to get through the first week. Please... I need some advice, maybe some procedure I can do or something that can help. I really want the help just can't find it around me.
569676 tn?1315644758 Thanks to Sal, Gnarly, Domnio, Laurel, and everyone else! 19 days ago I took my last dose of suboxone, 3mgs... and havent looked back since! At 10 days I was back to work, flying trips, and have been here overseas ever since... I am scheduled to come back home to the states in another week, and I cant wait. Im still having some minor issues, namely sleep (Or lack there of), periodic legs cramps, and stomach issues.
Avatar f tn I have now been on Suboxone for about 10 days, and it does help me with the cravings and with drawls, but it makes me feel like ****! I was prescribed 8mg per day. He told me to take the tablet every morning and to let it dissolve under my tongue. I totally forgot about the dissolving thing, and just swallowed it like a normal pill. The first day, I took a 1/2 pill, and I felt GREAT!
1566764 tn?1295361454 I have been on suboxone for 5 yrs now and before that methadone for 6 yrs I'm ready to come off but extremely scared! I know what it feels like to detox off methadone and suboxone w/o tapering down. It was forced because of jail,I do not want to come off suboxone again like that. I started at 24 mgs a day and now I take 8 mg one day and 4 the next day and I do that every other day. I plan on then going to just 4mg then 2mg then pieces. I hope to be totally off suboxone by summer.
Avatar m tn Hello, I was taking four Vicodin es for seven years. I have been on suboxone 2 mg for over four years. I have tried to taper off and I have gone cold turkey for three days but I felt terrible and went back to suboxone. I work 70 hours a week and I have a family to support so going to a rehab is out of the question. I would love to get off this stuff and be free of it but I am afraid of going back to pills. How long can you stay on suboxone and what long term harm will it do?
694704 tn?1227925321 There are lots of suboxone questions and I learned a lot from reading and commenting. I had gotten hooked on vic and oxycodone for about 1.5yrs, and then, 1.5 yrs ago, i got on suboxone "the miracle drug" that is a supposed bridge to functional life. Well apparantly it is a bridge to quitting DOC, and functioning, but certainly not a bridge back to "natural functioning"; you know, the God given energy we have in our bodies when we are not in addiction? My Dr.
Avatar f tn Hi All.... I stopped taking my Suboxone on Friday, weaned myself off of it slowly and like a fool thought I wouldn't feel any effects of it....WRONG! I have not gotten out of bed since Friday, I am a complete mess. I have no energy, no appetite and just want to die. How long is this going to last? I did feel a tiny bit better this morning, a glimmer of hope. I am so ashamed I ever got myself into this mess. I had taken Vicodin and Soma for 15 years and then Suboxone since last April.
Avatar m tn Forgot to mention I have Thyroid disease also, Hypo/Hashimoto's and thus far Suboxone or Suboxone w/d has not effected my THS levels. I have bloodwork every 3 months and there has been no change. I don't know the answer if you have Hyperthyroidism. Mine goes up and down on its own as that is the nature of the Hashimotos. If you do get a Drs. help or advice, make sure you mention all the meds and health concerns you have.
Avatar n tn Weel, from what I have read when you take the suboxone without waiting for your withdrawls to kick in full affect then the suboxone can send you into full blown withdrawl!!! I have also heard that an ingredient used in Suboxone is used at ER's for people that some in possible OD'd on something and they use this to counteract whatever drug they have taken..
Avatar m tn I have read so many threads about waiting for 12 or 24 hours to start on suboxone but I have scored high enough on the COWS test to take it much sooner and have actually taken it after 6 hours with no problems and that's from taking almost 400 milligrams of oxycontin a day and a bunch of norcos. My body goes through opiates very fast. I would like to know if I am the only one that has been able to do this.
Avatar n tn Do a search on MedHelp for post with sub in it, there's TONS of info on this site. Mostly bad tho - so be prepared! Suboxone is definitely not a 'wonder drug' like so many call it! There's no 'easy way' to do this - now that you're on the sub there's no point in going back to the roxys. Set up a taper plan and stick to it, you'll be fine.
Avatar n tn I was on suboxone for 4 years (about 8mg per day at first and tapered down to 1mg). Here comes the tricky part...under the supervision of my addiction specialist, I switched to oxycodone and think it will be easier to come off that that the dredded subox. Subox is 30 times mg per mg more powerful than oxycodone. And with its half life, it is like taking 30 mgs of percocet but never coming off of it for 24 to 36 hrs. That is a lot of percocet to fill those shoes.
306455 tn?1288865671 You can't get high off of Suboxone, nor can you can high if you use other opiates while on Suboxone. To do so, will make you sick. Suboxone is addictive, when taken for longer than (approx) 21 days. But can be weaned off of with very little discomfort compared to other opiate withdrawels. Suboxone should be tappered from. Suboxone amount does not need to be increased as time goes on. Instead, you decrease your dose slowly. Suboxone also can help with some pain issues.
7474434 tn?1391194108 Sup *******, I came on here about a month ago and asked for help with my suboxone withdrawals and got a lot of mental help from the responses. My friend digger has been helping me with encouraging messages. So I guess that's why im back here. I was on Suboxone 4-16 mg a day for the past 3 years. On January 17th I decided I was done and didn't want an orange pill/strip to run my life day after day. I went into a 6 day out patient detox that treated me with methadone.
477772 tn?1208297027 At that point I felt it was too much. I was nauseous, sweating, and an all around zombie. When I woke up this morning I felt even worse so I took a quarter of a 2mg. I then proceeded to feel like **** again. I then went to sleep for 4 hrs. I just woke up and feel a litter better. I guess it did work for the cravings, but cold turkey was almost the same. I had been off of the vics since Sat. afternoon and I only took 3 7.5's then. Think I'm gonna stop.
781880 tn?1238114088 I started out @ 2 8mg orange pills/ day, I am on 1/4 in the morning and 1/4 @ night now. Suboxone makes me seriously feel like a Zombie and I am tired of being out of it all the time. I am in College and can't remember jack and it's from the Subs. I am motivated to quit but it is very hard. I have 9 pills left and am not going back to my Dr.. My Doctor charged me $280 for a drug Urine Test (after insurance paid for most of it), I am so mad about it.
535089 tn?1400677119 Hi Everyone, I have recently started using the Suboxone strips prescribed to me by a Suboxone Counselor. Here's my story: I have had 6 back surgeries starting back in 1991 to present, the last being in 2011. In 2001, I was prescribed 10mg Oxycontin and 5mg Oxycodone...this began my opiate journey. I have been prescribed everything from Hydrocodone to Fentanyl. At one point, I was using a 150mcg patch every 48 hrs. along with 15mg Oxycodone 4x per day. My tolerance was through the roof.
Avatar f tn I'm currently on 1 mg of Suboxone. Wanna get down to .25 before the end of the month. I'm wondering if there's anyone on here that would like to go threw detox and start sobriety together??
5133446 tn?1364092540 Hi everyone I’m new here but have concerns about Suboxone. So I’ve been taking 270mg of Codeine throughout the day, every day for the last 7 years. I have never gone over that amount but sometimes I have less, it depends how I feel that day. I work full time and my family knows but it’s never been an issue as it doesn’t stop me from getting on with my life or negatively affect my behavior.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have been on 16mg of Suboxone for over 5 years after abusing Oxycontin for less than 2 years. My mood is content, but I am a shell of a person. I do not work and I never leave my home. I get up in the afternoon and go on my laptop until I go to bed around 4am, and then I repeat the same thing the next day. I am extremely constipated and have no energy. I know I need to get off Suboxone, but I don't feel strong enough to and the more time that goes by, the weaker I get.
Avatar n tn I tried Zoloft, Paxil and Prozac and they made me nuts. I tried Luvox and that made me a zombie. Wellbutrin made me anxious. SOOOOO, my question is are there any others I should try or should I just do the Subuxone an not try any new antidepressants. I was thinking about trying Buspar but I'm not sure. Maybe antidepressants just aren't for me. I still take Ativan and would like to get off of that as well. I was thinking the Buspar might help with that.
Avatar f tn Iam on day 8 of Suboxone about 8-12 mg a day which equals 1 pill and sometimes 1 and 1/2 pill a day....... The first 4 days were fine and i would say day 5 is when I woke up a few times during the nite... I'm not in pain I just wake up and wonder if suboxone is doing this to me... Anyone had similar effects? I feel better than ever and Am sooo Happy I am doing this treatment...
