Some peeps function fine when coming down from suboxone but I suck at tolerating pain or discomfort. Freaked out about how long the withdrawal symptoms are going to last.

The symptoms can last for several months or couple days without your body will feel bad the next week you may not be able to sleep or have them next games after that you’ll crash for a depression. The last month will be all about cravings and then things should slow down from there.

after like a month you should be good but it really depends on how much you’ve taken and for how long. Try to soak in Epsom salt to make it better.

Suboxone is an opioid. However, before your mind begins to race at the sound of that word, you should know that it was ideally manufactured as a means of helping people who suffer from other forms of opiate drugs. Suboxone is made from high potential , an opioid whose effects last very long, and naloxone, an opioid antagonist. However, what a lot of people actually don’t know is that while Suboxone was manufactured as a means of helping people with opioid addiction to recover, there is also a high tendency for patients to get addicted to the substance as well. The major cause of Suboxone addiction is pretty simple; you find opioid addicts who genuinely want to get themselves off the nasty habit buying the drug and taking it without prescriptions from doctors. They end up overdosing, and they simply replace their addiction drugs with Suboxone. Soon, these people find that they’re unable to stop taking Suboxone. They essentially replace one drug with another. Naloxone (one of the ingredients in Suboxone, remember?) was designed to block the opioid receptors in the brain whenever Suboxone is misused. Withdrawal symptoms kick in as soon as a user chooses to stop taking a drug. These symptoms come as a natural response of our body to the lack of the drug in question. The body wants something it’s used to, and a denial of this means that it will begin to feel uncomfortable. These are withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone contains a long-acting opioid, which means that it is able to stay active in the blood for longer periods. Usually, withdrawal symptoms of Suboxone won’t kick in until after about two days of your last use. Now, you should know that Suboxone withdrawal symptoms aren’t life-threatening. However, they’re still very uncomfortable to deal with nonetheless. The emotional and physical withdrawal symptoms set in after about two days. After about 3 to 5 days of your last dose, the symptoms get to their peak. They eventually subside after a week or two, and you begin to get more of a grip on yourself. You can taper off Suboxone slowly to reduce the effects of these symptoms. Lowering your usage consistently will help you to limit the symptoms, although it’s best that you do this with a doctor’s assistance.
