    Default How long does suboxone withdrawal last?

    Hello. I was taking 2mg of suboxone per day for about two months, then decided to quit. I didn't feel any withdrawal symptoms until about 4 days later. NOW I am in HELL!!! I can't sleep, have the chills, have diahrea, and have no appetite. Can anyone here tell me how long this will last? I'd much appreciate it.

    I was on 12 mgs for 10 months, then tapered down to .75 during the last month. I took my last dose a week ago. Days 3-6 were really bad for me, but today I feel much better. Still weak, but alot of the physical stuff seems to be getting better now. Hang in there.

    you most likely have at least another week of feeling pretty similar to that, with each day gradually improving. sub detox is a long, slow motherf***er. don't give up hope, it ends sooner than later. try melotonin for sleep, clonidine for the leg/muscle cramps, cold sweats and sleep. there's many more things you can take to help ease the w/d's, too, if yr interested. take care and don't lose hope, stay strong.

    Suboxone detox really, really sucks. I thought it would be a bit easier than OC, but in reality it's not unless you complete an effective taper. I am struggling right now. Wish me luck.
