Discussions that mention fluoxetine

Addiction & Recovery board


Have enjoyed reading the postings but have a question as the "new kid". I am down to 30 mg. methadone and will be starting on 8 mg Suboxone after 24 hours off the Methadone. I'm really scared! What can I expect? Am going through my psychiatrist and she isn't too helpful, but has me on Clonidine, Bupropion, Fluoxetine, Trileptal, and the new prescriptions "look like" Bendryl and Motrin. I was a heavy drug user for 24 years and the Methadone worked great but I've been on it for about 3 years and it sure limits where you can travel to. It definitely saved my life, but I like the freedom that the Suboxone will give me if I can get through this first stage. I'd love some input because I have a feeling this is going to be rough! Oh, I also heard people say the Suboxone makes them feel "high" when they started. Is there a chance I'm going to start craving the heroin and pills?
Thanks for your help.
Hi Chef,
I'm Bruin's grandmom...
My son has had a terrible time for a week now with bad dreams that he has to wake himself up from, so he is getting very little sleep. I tried to get him to call his doctor, but he won't because of your reply about sleep problems. He felt so great the first couple of days, now is very irritable and gets angry quickly. He is on 12 mg. a day...4 three times a day. Is this normal? He also has Trileptal (for mood swings), Clonidine, Fluoxetine, and Atenolol.
Thanks again
