I'm trying to use Suboxone for Depression, but am having problems with side effects of extreme drowsiness and impaired thinking. Does anyone know how I can deal with these side effects? I don't think lowering my dose will help, because even a small dose makes me tired. I've tried taking it at night, but mornings are the worst time for me, and the night dose doesn't help them, so I have to take 2-4mg in the morning to feel OK. I'll listen any advice. I need to make the Suboxone work for me.

None of the conventional antidepressants or other mental health drugs work (in fact they are quite harmful), and Vicodin worked very well; it makes me feel more balanced, gives me more energy, more concentration, and no euphoria. I didn't want to live a life of underground treatment, so I kept looking for a Doctor who would treat me legally with Buprenorphine. Unfortunately, I'm having the above problems, and I know it's the only opiate medication that I will be able to get a prescription for; unless anyone knows of a way I can find a Doctor who will give me another opiate option. Do you? Also, is there any difference between the effect of Suboxone and Subutex?
