thyroid and suboxone
I've been on suboxone for three years I recently was diagnosed with underactive thyroid and I'm only on synthroid and suboxone and I don't know if its because I need anxiety medicines or what but I'll have times when I'm short of breath and when I take my suboxone it makes it worse so I end up barely doing my dose just so I can breath never had any problems with my suboxne until I've started my synthroid I don't know if anyone else has this problem or if its just because I need a anxiety medication.

Sub will make you shprt of breathe but the doctor says there are a lot of meds you CANNOT take while taking sub because it can make you stop breathing

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
