Can a person taking 8mg Suboxone for opiate withdrawals also take St. Johns Wort, Passion Flower and/or GABA supplements to help with anxiety?
Talk to provider: I'd resist these products until getting a clear 'go-ahead' from the provider who prescribed the Suboxone. It can be dangerous when taken w/ any other CNS depressant (GABA) and St. John's Wort can lessen its' effectiveness - so discuss it and probably don't. The Suboxone alone may reduce your anxiety and CBT therapy is a safe, good option to learn good life skills. Best wishes! ...Read more
I have been on Suboxone since one month and I am taking exactly as prescribed. I am terrified of stories i've read ofwithdrawal. Was the "little to no withdrawal" a lie?

But in general you might think of six months to 18 months to slowly get down to zero. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Most patients feel the symptoms for 7 to 14 days after stopping the drug. Keep in mind that some withdrawal symptoms can start as you begin tapering off the medication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What should I do if I have been cut off suboxone, and are wanting to know how long the withdrawal lasts?
Depends: Many addiction experts would say that the length of withdrawal symptoms is correlated to the total length of opioid dependence multiplied to some extent by the strength of the opioids abused. There are unknown coefficients in the equation but that is a rule of thumb. For some people who have very severe dependency it can last months although for less severe dependency possibly weeks to even days! ...Read more
