So, hello everyone.... ive been trying to get off suboxone for quite a while.. i see no problem with staying on it as long as you want, forever even, if it helps you and keeps you from feeling withdrawals. but in my own case, ive been on suboxone for years now.. something like four or five years i think. and im only 25.. ive had a pretty insane life with pain that nobody could really figure out a solution to at an early age that ruined pretty much everything. and im still attempting to deal with everything that the pain i still deal with causes. its really been hell. but anyway.. the point of this thread is for me.. i seem to have always had withdrawal symptoms despite my taking suboxone.. of course they seem to be less severe but every day i take my dose i can feel the onset of symptoms earlier than i take my dose. seems that the nights i drink alcohol the following days when i am set to take my dose i am not in as bad withdrawal. does alcohol affect that? anyway, i just cant seem to lower my dosing any further as the little bit i take every day seems to just barely get me by and especially when im waking up in the middle of the night or early in the morning before im supposed to dose or around that time and cant go back to sleep because of the withdrawal. i need help with what i should do. there are two main issues why i want to see how things are when im compltely off of suboxone.. one being of course the withdrawal symptoms i still feel on a daily basis and two being adverse sexual side effects which have been getting in the way for years now as well.
any help is greatly appreciated. thanks a lot in advance
