    Default Death by suboxone

    I am on day 3 of my suboxone withdrawl and I'm so scared. Day 1 I wAs tired and cranky. Day 2is when I started to feel bad and then last night is when the restless leg and the burning flesh began. As most people experience didn't sleep but a couple hours last night.

    Day 3 oh you little jerk off how you have made me miserable. I hate suboxones I hate myself for getting in this mess. Who else can I blame? I'm just hoping that the beautiful ambein I fill tomorrow will help me sleep.

    Taking Imodium, Advil and a multi-vitamin. All not helping. It's weird how I go several hours of feeling like I'm dying and then I'll get 20 minutes of being it isn't that bad. Maybe I will feel better tomorrow. After all I've only been taking subs for three months. Thank God I didnt go a year like they had wanted. Can't afford that without insurance.

    Once this is over I never want to see a pain killer again. Devil pills!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, it is not easy to come off Sube. But hang in there; what you feel is not only Sube but also the effect of opiates you used before going on Sube.

    Using it for only three months though should not make it a prolong ordeal. Stay the course and things definitely get better.

    One good thing I found about Sube is that the WD is so severe that you will be scared shitlesss to ever touch any other opiates.

    You may want to add magnesium sulfate 800 mg to help with restless legs. Suggested 2x daily.

    Very lucky you didn't stay on this nasty crap for a yr. You may have saved yourself yrs of pain and suffering. I hope you doing whatever you can to ensure your able to stay drug free. Trust me when I say that there was no healing from addiction while taking one of the strongest opiates available to man...being altered to the point I feel can cause more problems then a cleaner non altered opiate.
    Welcome to forum...much support available but can not replace 3d support. Feel free to complain, share symptoms. We may just be able to help you find ways to make the reL healing more tolerable.

    I would research the use of the ambien...nothing will give you the sleep you want but may just result in facing yet another withdrawl process that can mke herion wd look like a simple head cold. Benzo wd is just like alcohol, dangerous and could end in death.

    Keep writing/reading, much info to be had here. I wish you well and congratulation on reclaiming your life as it was meant to be.
    omission is not honesty, only a different way of lying.

    Melatonin is good for sleep. Ambien is addictive, just sayin....I know from experience.

    Thanks for all the words of encouragement. I actually got to sleep a couple hours around five am. The leg kicks were pretty bad. Today is a tiny bit better. Kind of, I don't feel like I'm running such a horrible fever I can keep still. Now my hands are shaki so badly it's hard to type and I don't want to move. Day 4 hmm. Didn't think I would survive yesterday but now that the withdrawls are lifting slowlyni have a little hope.

    Wow this is a horrible thing to go through. I'm a stay at home mom so the past three days have been torture. Luckily my mood isn't as bad as it was on suboxone. I'm so happy I didn't listen to the doctor who said I needed to be on this junk for a year. He's just a licensed dealer to me. Don't mean to offend anyone that's just how I feel.

    Day 5 has proven to be better. Still haven't slept well but I slept more than the night before so I'm content. I don't really have that much of a lack of energy once I get moving but to get moving that is pretty hard. My flesh has stopped burning and the rls is gone thankfully. I might actually clean the house today. Music is helping me through this and laughing at the world of Warcraft freak out video. Go watch it....hilarious! I'm hoping tomorrow is even better than today.

    If anyone is reading this and thinking about quitting DO IT! I know I haven't been on it as long as some but I know that I feel better not depending on those stupid films and worrying that I will run out. I will keep posting as much as I can so anyone reading can know what I've been through

    Day 6- back in hell WTF! Restless leg fever and might I add a little 2 am puking. Still no sleep BUT I get to fill ambien Saturday. Had the date wrong!! I know ambien is addictive but I've been taking them a year or two now. I'm already in deep!

    Another weird side effect I am having a hard time breathing. Just washin the dishes will have me panting. Then there's the whole vision thing. Any see up close I think that not sleeping is the cause of that though. Even though I am still having some withdrawls I still feel better than I did at day 3. Omg it took everything I had not to go back to the doctor. EVERYTHING!

    I still hope things improve tomorrow. I have to pray. That's the only thing that I believe will help!

    Ok have a question if anyone at all is even paying attention. How does a person find motivation? I refuse to sit here and be miserable. I don't want to be a hermit in my house but can't find the motivation. What types of food is the best to eat when you really aren't hungry. I survived on grapes the first four days. Now my body I demanding more but I can't find anything that is light and filling. That's sad. I can't even think about food lol.

    Hi Nebail

    I am new to this post and I took my last piece of sub three weeks ago today. The first week I could not move. I was soooo miserable. I could not eat, I was weak, I had no motivation to do anything. The only refuge I had was to jump in my jeep and take rides up and down 95 with the radio blaring. I find refuge in music also. Even after three weeks clean off of subs. I am still feeling the effects of the withdrawl. I have good days and bad. My anxiety was through the roof for the last two weeks but that has subsided. I have a little anxiety left. I have been back to work for the last two weeks and that is ruff. I am lucky I am able to come home and lay down when needed. This week is a little better cause I am able to at least get my house cleaned up with the help of my new husband. I had to tell him that I have been taking subs regularly for the past 6 months and am going through withdrawl during the first week. I could not keep telling him it was a flu. He was good about it. I ate crackers even when I was not hungry. I know this is tuff but it will get better slowly. I had hours when I felt ok and then felt like absolute sh...t. I am still not one hundred percent but I am seeing the lite. I am going to give it another week and hopefully I am one hundred percent. I wish you luck in this whole f......en ordeal. I know exactly what u r going through and believe me I have never been this close to death as getting off this crap. It makes you appreciate the feeling of normal again. I look at people and think boy they are lucky they feel normal. I cannot wait for that day.

    I dont know anything about suboxone from experience but I know about coming off of methadone, I was on methadone for 7 1/2 years & coming off of it was no piece of cake. I found my motivation before ever even coming off. Just tired of it! Do you have help? Is there anyone to help take care of you? I had my husband take off work for 2 weeks. I have 3 daughters & there was no way I could have taken care of them properly. I dont know your situation but if you could get help you could stay in the bed & try to relax even through the initial w/d. Be cautious with the Ambien, I too have taken Ambien for about 2 years & it was my methadone withdrawl that ended that addiction. It caused adverse effects with me. It made my w/d's worse & no sleep from it!!! So I decided to google it & found out that a whole lot of people in our shoes were having the same reaction. Even people that had not ever taken Ambien were having adverse effects. And what you said about prayer, well thats everything, if it wasnt for prayer I would have never made it. Here is a verse that I prayed 1st thing every morning that Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 12:9

    King James Version (KJV)

    9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

    Thank you do much for your reply! It's nice to hear that someone else is in my shoes. I honestly felt like no one was even listening. It's funny how everyone is different. I'm not feeling anxiety. To be honest the day got better. I forced myself to eat linchables and drink water. All I can drink is water.

    I am truly hoping that now I'll be on the seventh day or whatever I will be okay. At least as far as restless leg. As far as the sleep issue, well I guess I'll just have to start slapping people.

    Thank you for those words and the prayer! I need to write it down... To answer you question no I really don't have anyone to help me during the day. I get relief at night but it doesn't matter because I am awake anyway. Congrats on kicking the domes. That in sure was way harder then this little sitch. But regardless I am tired of this crap.
