subutex trouble

I am 11 days off subutex and still very weak and cannot sleep. I try to push myself each day as if nothing were wrong, however I am running out of the mental toughness to keep going every day as I have been. I began taking hydrocodone about 4 years ago due to various pains from a long past of playing football. I started out slow, and as with all of these drugs began taking more and more. I stopped taking the hydrocodone and switched to methadone. I began taking 80 mg per day. At my peak, I was taking between 450 to 500 mg per day, between 15 and 20, 40mg pills. I was able to work my way down to only 10 mg per day and then back to the hydrocodone. I started the subutex program about two months ago. I took 24 mg per day and worked my way off after 7 weeks. I went thru fairly severe withdrawls for about 3 days. after 11 days now I am still not ok. I am to weak to even get out of bed for any length of time. I still have body fever and restlessness and cannot sleep. I need to be able to sleep to allow my body to heal, what can I do to sleep? it has gotten better, but not close to normal. i can only hope it will end soon.

Re: subutex trouble

are you not able to get back on the sub? Maybe you need to taper a bit longer...

Re: subutex trouble

My freind, It sounds like you need some professional help. I had to do the same so I checked myself into inpatient detox. If possible you should too. At the very least get under a doctors supervision to help you with this. Good luck. Mud.

Re: subutex trouble

wolfe go back to sub dr and request some clonidine for the w/ds.also ask about a new drug called provigil,that i think is helpful for lack of energy during w/ds.we hate to do it but exercise is the best drug that you can do at this time.the more the you have to work during all this?if not dont worry about it,take your time it will come back.give it 30days and you will be 70%back to normal.good luck-spark
