Been using suboxone and subutex and a crutch for opiate withdrawal... Anyways im on my 4th day of subutex withdrawal and its honestly not that bad as going cold turkey off oc a year and a half ago.. but im somewhat alone in this.. ive been taking some vitamins, and been using xanax and ambien for sleep, but i'll feel good for a couple hours then get extremely depressed and want to go out and get more sub... how long is this going to last and am i doing the right or wrong things to deal with these w/d's? someone let me know how long this will subside and if im taking the right steps? ? ? ? ?

Not a good idea dude. You should ween off subutex under the supervision of a doctor. That way you won't have withdrawl.

Good luck

hey there, coming off of subutex isn't easy! i've been an on-off user for 18 years. i'm currently taking 0.2 mg subutex, and still cant kick the habbit of putting that sub in my mouth. been like that for a year would u believe, the mind also has a major part to play in beating any addiction, my advice is to stick with your doc and get yourself somme further help via councilors, GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND!

I can say i think your doing the right thing by getting off the subs.Although taking the xanax might not be such a good idea as it is a persciptoin drug and might set you back i would suggest taking over the counter tylenol PM for sleep it works wonders.Also If you can handle the WD just keep your head up and keep on going with it.I was on subs for 2 yrs and tuesday I just woke up and didnt take any and i felt o.k. its now thursday and i feel some WD symptoms but not to bad i just take aleve through the day a multi-vitamin and excersize for 30 MIN. cardio mainly(jogging in place) and it helps alot and at night i take 1 tylenol pm and get very little sleep but enough for me.Also I pray alot you know the lord works wonders when you dont have the strength to go on he will help you carry on...so now just the feeling of knowing im actually getting off of subs is enough for me to keep going through these WD syptoms.... I wish you the best of luck you can do it just believe in yourself and stay strong :)
              Hope this helps   because i know hearing about some one who is going though it or already went through it makes you feel like your not alone i know it helped me. :-|

I really think it's just going to take some willpower on your part. I'm on day 15 and doing just about the same thing you are but drink LOTS of water throughout the day, it flushes your body of toxins.Please stay strong, you can do this!

I am using subutex also and I have failed a few times which has cost me dearly and strained many family ties and relationships all I can say is just stick with it you are doing well if you feel like you need something don't turn to alcohol or miss a dose of subutex etc or go out and score. Concentrate on finding ways to keep busy and keep fit .. taking vitamins is a step in the right direction imagine how many nutrients your body missed out on when you were using. Good luck with keeping clean I also need luck as well .. willpower is just as important as sticking to the subbys.

Well it will certainly SEEM bad, but coming from someone who has been in and out of withdrawals for various reasons and finally because I quit subs, they shouldn' be bad. Not major ones like you hear horror stories about, but during it will certainly seem bad. Just know its mostly mental, stay firm and resolved that you're finished, FOREVER. Recognize how horrible its made life for you, how chained you are, Im done being a slave and Im never looking back I dont care how many fond memories I have. Stay strong and don't give up, and know that soon enough you will see a huge change in how you feel. So much energy you can't sleep, it sounds rough because not sleeping is rough, but Im shocked to have so much energy with nothing behind it but myself. It honestly makes me happy, I just went through all this, and Im only on day 5. Its not an experience I want to repeat, but it is totally doable. Just dont be a wimp and let it push you around, its a chemical lol, your brain is YOUR brain, you tell IT what to do, dont let it tell you what to do.

Hello.

We at Steadyhealth are conducting short anonymous survey about Suboxone treatment, withdrawal and side effects.

The goal of this survey is gathering real life experiences from you and other people who went through treatment with Suboxone, Subutex or any form of medication that contains buprenorphine/naloxone.

We’ll use your experiences to make an ebook guide in order to help all patients who are currently going through Suboxone treatment, Suboxone withdrawal or who are experiencing side effects.


This survey won’t take more than 10 minutes of your time, and your answers may help people who are going through hard times on Suboxone.


You can access the survey about Suboxone/Subutex here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/92QJT98


Thank you,

Billy
