    Leg pain I can relate to, even after I am off of something for a while they still ache and my lower back. I noticed though when I was on the sub for a long period of time I had joint aches and pains a lot. My neck and stuff were always sore. I think there is a relation. Good Luck, hot showers are all I know of. I do know people that say Quinine works well and I think thats an over the counter but I would research anything before I tried it out.

    Just in case you have any doubt after these responses, leg ache is the one thing holding on the strongest after getting off Oxy's. Even after getting up to 20mg Suboxone a day, they will still ache some later in the day. I know the leg pain (as well as all over) is part of comming of the opiates we were on; but I have figured out that it's probably also a side effect of the Suboxone - Day 12 and they still ache at night. Ibuprofen does help me some.
    On a side note, yesterday I had the worst, most prolonged, headache I have had in a long time. I tried asperin, Tylenol, and Ibuprofen (spaced out a few hours, not all at once) and nothing seemed to help. No real problems with it before yesterday and today I feel ok. Anyone else have some experience with that?
    Good luck to you.

    I always got that bad leg achiness when detoxing from H. And the first few days on Sub also. In fact the Sub took away all symptoms except for the leg pain and that cold, chilled to the bone feeli for the first 2 or 3 days. My ache is in my calves and sometimes lower back.

    I found three things that worked well for me. One was to sleep with my legs propped up on pillows. I could actually feel the ache flowing out of them after a few minutes of having my legs elevated. The other was to take hot baths, but that would only help as long as I was in the tub. It would come back as soon as I got out. And the other was to take Motrin, not the over the counter kind, but the RX kind either 600 or 800 mg. There IS a difference between the RX and the other, it has some extra ingredient I am told, not sure, but I know it helps a lot.
    If you could get some clonodine aka Catapres RXed to you, THAT is a wonder drug for the leg aches! In fact that is one of the chief symptoms it takes care of, feels like it relieves the built up blood pressure in my legs. Not sure why you would still have leg aches after this long on Sub, I dont know enough about long term effects of Sub except for my own and I dont seem to have much trouble with it.
    The drug stores have OTC remedies specifically for leg aches. Not sure what it is tho...."Veinestat" maybe? I'm not sure.
