Suboxone Side Effects
Just started Suboxone thursday(10/10/13). How am i supposed 2 feel? How can I tell if i'm on the right dosage or not? Some side effects are w/drawls?
ask your doctor: All of your questions are excellent ones, and only your treating physician can answer them accurately for you alone. There are many generalities, but i don't know why you are now on suboxone, what other meds you are taking, what dose you are on, and so on. Your treating physician does, and you need to call tomorrow to have a follow up appointment to go over all of these questions. Good luck! ...Read more
Some good ones: Methadone can lead to sudden cardiac death at high doses, half life is not as predictable, can have many drug-drug interactions. Suboxone is considered safer. If doing a risk-to-benefit analysis & the choices are staying on illicits or suboxone, the latter wins. Side effects are outweighed by its benefits in many individuals. The 10 year experience in usa limits the answer to 10 years. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6 days off SUBOXONE, gettin vivitrol 2day what should I expect? Any bad side effects? I still have bad RLS from WD from sub. When will that be gone?
Yes: All opiates have, as a side-effect, sexual dysfunction. If the problem involves maintaining an erection, medications like viagra, Cialis and Levitra (vardenafil) can help. Others complain that they have problems achieving orgasm with opiates, viagra will not help this. Opiate use, especially long term can result in problems with one's testosterone level. There is a blood test and treatment for low testosterone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have been on suboxone for 2 years, my Dr. just put me on ambien (zolpidem) 5mg at night. I am feeling restless, cant sleep at night, chills. Is this side effec?
Not sure of question: Did your doctor reduce or stop your suboxone or just add ambien (zolpidem). What you are describing is not a typical reaction to Ambien, (zolpidem) although each person varies. I would check this out with your doc. If he reduced you suboxone, your symptoms would make more sense. ...Read more
I have been on Suboxone for roughly 15 months, what if any long term effects on my body should I be aware of?
See answer : Suboxone has been used regularly in us for 10 yrs so the answer is really limited to that. No major long term side effects identified thus far. Rare risk of liver damage, monitored with simple blood test. Low testosterone is also a side effect, which other opiates can cause as well. Constipation never goes away easily treated. Talk to your doctor about long term risk-vs-benefit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Don't: Neither substance should have a high effect when smoked/burned. On the other hand, the things that go to make a pill aren't meant to be inhaled and are liable to cause irritation to mouth, throat and lungs. ...Read more
Depends: the answer is different depending on "last for - - what". officially, it can be taken once a day. I have patients taking every other day. At the same time, if you take a small dose, it might not last for the whole day and patients are taking twice a day. If you use Suboxone to eliminate withdrawals, it will last for a day or two and then your withdrawals are back. ask the question again, but be mo ...Read more
Am I suppose to feel the same opiate like effects on Suboxone everyday or does it go away. Or is that what fills my cravings and suppose to feel it?
Suboxone effects?: suboxone should prevent opiate w/d (as it is an opiate). Pts should not feel as intoxicated, or euphoric, as they did on opiates of abuse. This is because Buprenorphine is a partial opiate agonist - meaning it binds to the receptor, but causes partial only response. The subjective experience of this varies between patients. c ur doc to discuss ur experience & devise the best treatment plan 4 u:) ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
