Is anyone else stuck on such a small dose of suboxone. It's probably smaller than a sesame a seed. Still withdraw symptoms. If I don't take it 2 days I feel like I'm gonna jump out of my skin. Plus I already feel so weak tired and sneezing depression etcView 2 Replies

I have been staying on a buddy's couch...been working 12 hour days and really haven't been able to fall all the way asleep for weeks now..could this just be stress and i'm over thinking things or are these signs of a much serious issue....View 1 Replies

I have been in PM for over 6 years. Have a great PM Doctor, never had any problems with counts, UA, etc. But I am SO tired of counting pills, waiting for the next dose, insurance issues etc. I am actually thinking about taking a break from pills and asking for suboxone for a couple of month. I know the ingredient bunephrine is a pain med actually given to cats for pain. Will suboxone work for pain or will the Naloxone prevent it from suppressing pain ? If I do take it, will I be considered an addict as I know it is prescribed for addicts in treatment.View 6 Replies
My wife is tapering off Valium and at 42 mgs. Takes it 4 times a day (10, 10, 12, 10) and wants to switch to 3 times a day so it doesn't interrupt her sleep as much. She can take 14 mgs 3 times a day. Will this be a problem or will she experience any kind of side effects?View 1 Replies
I am nearly 18wks and often have tightening of my uterus/abdomen. It isn't painful, just uncomfortable. It happens 5-6 times a day at least.
Is this normal so early on?
Is it baby moving?
I have been on Sertraline 50mg for 6 weeks, I saw my therapist and she asked how I felt, I told her I did not feel any different, she contacted my Dr. and the Dr. upped my dose to 200mg, this has frightened me, a leap from 50mg to 200mg, has anyone had this outcome, and what were the pro's and con's of this sudden higher dose.View 8 Replies
In Ukraine, the dog has bitten me. At the end of treatment, 6 doses of rabies vaccine is recommended in the report. They make 4 dose in Ukraine and I come to my home (Istanbul) and 5. dose is finished. But total five doses of vaccine are made in Turkey. I do not understand why they want to dose 6. I have a healthy body. 6. dose is important? OR optional?View 2 Replies
Does anyone else suffer from leg and feet pain when they get up so bad that you lose your balance at times?View 46 Replies
It started with a crawling feeling in my left foot, then one day my back started playing up. I have always suffered a bit of sciatic pain on and off but this started and just didn't go away. Doc referred me to physio and it has just got worse and worse. he said i had very sensitive nerves and i am now on 300mg gabapentin three times a day but the pain is just getting worse. Pressure like pain in lower leg, pins and needles in foot, shooting pains in but,shin,and thigh. i now have to sit when making dinner and if i stand for any time i have to stand on one leg, (not very attractive) Docs and physio just keep saying its going to take time but never say what it is prop. physio just says i have sensative nerves and i am very bendy.View 11 Replies
I am a 50 year old woman who was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid 18 years ago. I have never been right as the Dr keeps changing my dose every time I have a blood test. He says this sometimes happens, but I constantly feel lousy, tired spotty, overweight, high blood pressure (now medicated) and IBS. I work all week and spend the weekend in bed.The mood swings are also awful. Since another reduction I am now on 100mcg and have developed an unusual pain in the lower front right hand side of my neck (can't feel a lump or anything) but get aching through shoulder and side of head.
am really getting a bit fed up now as the Dr just doesn't seem to understand how I feel and has offered anti-depressants. I have seen a specialist in the past but he was a diabetic man rather than thyroid and actually commented on the wrong set of blood results!
i guess my plea is twofold first is there anyone else out there who has had similar symptoms and 2 can anyone recommend a good specialist? I'm thinking of going privately now even though it's so expensive and thought about the Birmingham Thyroid Clinic?
I've been on LDN - Low Dose Naltrexone for a few months now. It's been a bumpy road and the journey has had both positive and negative points.
I've been adjusting the dose but in so far the 3 main benefits I can claim from it are:
- some sleep improvement;
- less pain intensity;
- apparent normalising effects on some blood markers such as LDH (lactate dehydrogenase).
However I feel exhausted to an unbearable point and continue prone to inflammation. I've decided to continue treatment with LDN because I've read extensively about it and many authors say it may take up to a yer to come to fruition.
Meanwhile I've resorted to naturopathic medicine and I'm under treatment as well.
We're all different in the way we react to medications and because I've been reading so much suffering here with so little hope of remission that I thought of encouraging you of not giving up and trying new things.
I would like to share with you a recent study on LDN whose Abstract is:
"The use of low-dose naltrexone (LDN) as a novel anti-inflammatory treatment for chronic painJarred Younger, [corresponding author] Luke Parkitny, and David McLain
Low-dose naltrexone (LDN) has been demonstrated to reduce symptom severity in conditions such as fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and complex regional pain syndrome. We review the evidence that LDN may operate as a novel anti-inflammatory agent in the central nervous system, via action on microglial cells. These effects may be unique to low dosages of naltrexone and appear to be entirely independent from naltrexone is better-known activity on opioid receptors. As a daily oral therapy, LDN is inexpensive and well-tolerated. Despite initial promise of efficacy, the use of LDN for chronic disorders is still highly experimental. Published trials have low sample sizes, and few replications have been performed. We cover the typical usage of LDN in clinical trials, caveats to using the medication, and recommendations for future research and clinical work. LDN may represent one of the first glial cell modulators to be used for the management of chronic pain disorders.

I've been an addict for many years on and off, but over the last 2 yrs I've mostly been doing the suboxone treatment daily. I so want to get off of these once and for all,and if I scroll back into the suggestions on here, I can probably find what I'm looking for,as to advice in getting off them.I can sure use some helpful advise or remedies from some of you that have been on suboxone and gotten off of them.View 4 Replies
I've been on suboxone a little over 18 months and I wouldn't even question getting off suboxone but I feel like it's taking away all of my emotions by this point and making me irritable. This week I wanted to do h so bad but I didn't and I haven't had a problem with cravings on Suboxone.. I'm also a junior in college so I'm worried getting off will mess up my studies and focus. I know I'll be at risk but I miss having emotions and feeling things. My doctor also holds over my head and won't let me off of it if I don't go to meetings but he knows my problems with them and I feel like he won't do it because of the high check of prescribing suboxone. My cravings also scared me this week and what's the point of being on it if I just have to wait like 48 hours and I can do dope which is super easy to wait.View 2 Replies
I am taking suboxone for 6 months, going doing little by little. I am at a quarter a pill. but i got these percocet from the hospital, plus I have been really been wanting to get off the suboxone anyway. How would I go about doing that.

I've done Percocet for years now and I finally decided to quit , this is my second day without using any percocets. The first night was absolutely crazy and didn't even sleep one hour and I'm dead serious ! After tossing and turning all night getting hot and cold skin crawling restless legs etc, I had a my sister get me a 8 mg suboxone strip from a friend at her work. I cut it in three pieces so it's a little over 2.5 mg a piece. I took a dose of this at 5 am. When should I take my next dose of this ? How long does it last?View 8 Replies
So yesterday I went to see the RA and it appeared as if he cared. He explained that I was severe with FIBRO and that there isn't too much that he could do. He upped my LYRICA to 200 mg (not sure why as it gives me more issues than taking pain away) . He also suggested that I go to a Fibro Clinic in UF , some where in the panhandle of Florida, I can not do it (Finances, Insurance, I don't drive because of LYRICA) . He also gave me a referral for SUBOXONE This is a medicine that they usually give for people who have had problems with pain pills.The RA explained how he just read an article in how this could help me. Has any one else experienced this? Did it work?View 2 Replies
