Hi Ping

I have never taken suboxone, but I did taper from first Oxycodone and then from Xanax. I can tell you that I had headaches throughout the tapering process and for a while after stopping completely. I can not give you a scientific reason why this happens, but I have always figured that tapering is forcing a brain readjustment in chemicals and that is why the headaches occur. As the brain leveld out after each of my cuts, the intensity of the headaches would lessen.

For me, they were a part of the battle to get off the drugs so I accepted them as a step in the right direction. No fun, but certainly a fairly samll price to pay to get drug free. I am sorry you are experiencing themm , but it is quite common and eventually they will be gone along with drug dependence.

Best of wishes
