hey summer,i wish it was summer here in ky,i hate the cold weather more than anything.to answer your questions-1.the sub makes me do the same thing if im not really carefull about what i say and do.remember it is still an opiate and technically you are under the influence.even tho we are not high compared to our doc,we are still kinda foggy headed on sub.this is made worse on the higher doses 16mgs and up.i have come down some from 20mgs when i started and it has gotten better.he needs to not take any sub. past 3:00pm if he can cause it gives energy and hurts sleep bad.also once he gets stable for a few months he needs to start dropping the dose real slow.im not sure what mgs you said he is taking,was it 16?if it is he can get to 8mgs rather quickly and have no w/ds.then slow it down.he needs to get plenty of sleep every night and eat right.an antidepresent might be needed here also,check with his dr maybe.

as for the sex drive,for me when i was on methadone pills my sex drive was nowhere to be found.miss america could stand there naked and it would do no good.but since i went back on sub my sex drive has been in overdrive from day one.the lower the dose of sub the better this will get for him and you:Dtell him to get some viagra till it comes back.no shame there.these opiate meds will do this to some men,most men.but it does come back i promise.my girlfriend has named me the big sparkowski.i am the man.anyway enough lies about me,he will be alright.good luck-spark
