Question on Suboxone withdrawals-Please help me!

I am withdrawing off Suboxone day 3. I have the restless legs at night and achy arms and anxiety and I feel like I want to jump out of my skin!!!! I have a question, if I took some Hydrocodones would this lessen the w/d's? I know I shouldn't but I can't take this any more!!! Please help!!!

Re: Question on Suboxone withdrawals-Please help me!

Nope, if you took some hydro's you'd just be running headlong back into addiction, all the work you'e done on the subs would be for nothing. If you read the detox posts and home remedies at the top of this page there are some remedies for what you're going through. Along with those hot baths and rub downs on your legs help alot with the restless legs. No matter how or what way you detox, these are going to be a problem, so why start now and go back to the beginning, you've already got 2 feet in the door.....suck it up, toughen up and hang in there. When the jitters get bad during the day, get up and take a walk. The more you try and be still to control them, the worse they will be. Clean the house, mop the floors, vacumn, etc. Stay busy.

And support of any kind is key, come here, talk to us, yell at us, gripe at us whatever....we'll be around to help.

Take care, and hang in there,

kat

Re: Question on Suboxone withdrawals-Please help me!

gbnif6. I have to agree with Kat and learn from my mistake. I did take pain medication after being on subs for 7 months and it took 3 days of hell to get back on the subs and regulated again. Can you get an rx for subs??.
I have not detoxed off of subs, just stopped and took pain medication. Messed me up so bad I was suicidal. I have not detoxed off of subs so I can only tell you my experience. Do all the things that kat said and read read read. There are alot of places to go to get advice. Be careful. I got a not so nice responce about my relaspse. I believe we should be able to get it out and not be judged by anyone. These boards are great and save and help people, including me.
So take care and continue to post.
Peace
Zoie

Wink Re: Question on Suboxone withdrawals-Please help me!

Hi Guys,
Thanks for your post and advice. I went for 5 days without and couldn't take it anymore, the wd's were just way to brutal for me I did do the hot baths and tried to keep busy like you suggested but the wd's just got the best of me, I guess I'm wimpy, LOL!. I did still have my script for Suboxone 2mgs so I just decided to fill it again, I didn't think it would be so hard at such a low dose but maybe because I have been on them for 4 years there is so much built up in my system. BUT I decided to not see my current doctor anymore as he thinks I should stay on Suboxone for the rest of my life! I made an appointment with an addiction specialist I stopped by his office and explained my case to his nurse and she thought they could help me. They are a Pain Medicine/Addiction Medicine Clinic. My current Sub doctor is a psychiatrist. So I have an appointment set up with them in 2 weeks. She told me to continue my Suboxone until then. Have you guys successfully withdrawn from Suboxone or other narcs? I got addicted when I had a partial hysterectomy and had back problems. I probably should have just gone thru the withdrawals from the Lortabs. I have a feeling there will be lawsuits against the makers of Suboxone in the future, they don't mention that this drug is very hard to withdraw from in there advertisements and my doctor didn't mention that either!! Anyway I'm just rambling on here. I just wanted to thank you guys and say sorry I couldn't do it. I'll keep you informed on my journey

gbnib, you have NOTHING to be sorry about. WD"S suck and you are doing things to help you thru and not using your doc. I would really be interested to see what the MD has to say. I was also told I had to be on subs for a year, until he had to fill out many pages to my insurance company. Now he wants to get me off ASAP. I know I'm addicted to them after 7-8 months with a couple of relaspses, dental, then because I found pills I had hid and wanted to be out of pain so bad I took them for a week. It was wonderful being able to function normally without crying in pain, BUT it wasn't worth it because I had to start all over again on the subs, smaller dose, not 32mg as he had me on before And why doesn't the sub doctor take insurance.
So be proud of yourself for getting help and changing doctors.
Keep us posted and take good care.
Love and Peace
Zoie

Re: Question on Suboxone withdrawals-Please help me!

gbnib, hi there, how are you doing. I too did not know that suboxone was addictive. I researched the med after being on it for some time and wanted to kick myself in the arse. My fault. I beleieved what the MD told me. He said it would take away my pain, NOT, etc, etc. So I'm on another journey and trying to stay positive. I'm grateful that I have this board to vent, and good friends that may not understand what I'm going thru, but love me anyway. wow, what a concept. I also get to babysit for my 4 month old grandbaby next Monday. My back and shoulders will be an issue, but we'll have fun anyway. She's the love of my life, pure joy. It is still a struggle not having pain meds to take the pain away, or make it bearable/ I'll just put her in bed with me and we can play. She likes to be held and I have a pillow to help with that too.
Just thing about you.
Take care.
Love and Peace,Zoie
