Suboxone addiction and Cancer
Dude. Your MD is an IDIOT. suboxone is super addictive. I don't know if you have health insurance or how your plan works, change doctors. Go to addiction medicine and find a suboxone group. I go to Kaiser Permanente in West Covina Ca. I know how you feel. I've been on and off suboxone for 3 years. I'm tapering now. It makes me incredibly nauseous and I'm sick of having to carry around MEDS to feel shitty. I was taking 6-10 mgs daily. Now I'm taking 3 mgs a day (half a pill 3x a day). Google "su

I had been on suboxone once for 18 months and it was no 10 day withdrawalsl like heroin or other opiates. It took me two months before the withdrawals finally stopped. Hot and cold flashes, sweating profusely, body aches, etc. etc. And that was just stopping and not tapering. You should taper down first, even if its as much as 2 mg a week but dont just dump it. get down to 1-2 mg a day first and then dump it. That would be my advice.

Nice that it cut off all my post. Long story short, all I said was consult your Sub doctor and let him know your concerns, he may lower your dosage or spread your dose throughout the day in smaller bits, or discontinue use if it is really affecting you that badly to where it is worrying you, and it obviously is because you came online and wrote about it. It happens in your sleep as well, and sometimes worse than when you are awake, keep that in mind, Good luck.

A side affect of Suboxone is breathing problems. I have been taking Sub for about a year and a half now and just within the past 4 to 6 months started having difficulty breathing. It was probably a coincidence that you started your other medication at the same time as having the breathing problems. I wouldn't call it a "drowning" feeling as much as just wheezing and I feel there is a blockage in my throat. When I breath in you can hear the wheeze (not crackly just obstructed). I just make sure

I feel like I am drowning at night when I finally lay down. Stuffy nose, thinning hair, and mood swings are symptoms I suffer from since I take synthroid. I think I would rather just suffer from my hypothyroidism!

It's the suboxone, it took a while to hit me too but I know I hold my breath (unknowingly) because of it.

OMG I can relate to you so well. It's really scary when I get the shortness of my breath. I feel like I'm drowning or like I need to get more air. I'm also having muscle jerks constrantly but they do not hurt just feel strange. My body feels like it's numb or asleep. If I sit very still my neck jerks . I also have hypothyroid and now moderate arthritis in my neck. I'd love to hear back from you or anyone who can relate. Larsy1566

please help
Methylphenidate has a lot of consequential issues. The side effects cause more side effects.
It is registered as an over stimulant. So I will wake you up, set off severe depression by suppression some much needed brain chemicals, then stir it all up so you can't sleep, then disorganizes your thinking and concentration. Talk to the manufacturer, they can explain it better than I can. But I did, and now I understand why with some people it wakes them up but makes them want to kill themselves. Not
