hello everyone, I am new here, and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with Suboxone (Buprenorphine/Naloxone combination) I am on 2mg daily, and I am scheduled to detox from it very soon.
Just to see what it will feel like, I skipped my dose yesterday out of curiosity. I wish to hell that I didn't, because I spent my entire day getting sick, with TERRIBLE, electric shock-like pains shooting through my bones, painful muscle cramps, and the kicking feelings in your legs and spine, and a splitting headache.
I am supposed to skip every other day during my detox, and I am scared to death of experiencing this torture every other day for god knows how long!!!
How long approximately does it take before the antagonist properties of the Buprenorphine and the Naloxone are gone? I want to help myself get better, so I can work, but I'm so afraid of making myself WORSE! How long before the Bupe and Naloxone stop making you go into the opiate withdrawal syndrome?
If anyone has ANY experience with this medication, could you please email me or post on here? I am at my wits end.
