Meds causing Anxiety and Depression???
Hi; I just wanted to see if anyone out there is in the same boat as me regarding anxiety possibly being caused by a long time use of a drug called Subutex or Suboxone. I had a pain killer addiction and in 2007 I was put on what I thought was a wonder drug called Subutex. I was on a very high dose for about 2 years and now I have gotten myself down to 2 mg daily from 24 mg. All I know is that even though I have always had some type of anxiety, I have never had anxiety and fear so bad as I have in the last few years. Not too much is know about this drug as it is given to addicts for detox and short term maintenance. I now know that this drug is much more addictive then the other pills I was taking to get high, even though I don't get high from this drug, the withdrawal is so much more intense and longer lasting. I wish I never took it to begin with. Can anyone relate? I am also taking Xanax and Valium for panic. I feel so trapped.

Thanks all!!!!
