Hi, I wrote in this morning asking for your opinion on taking suboxone for depression and severe anxiety. I can not find my post or comment, although I had not signed up for the site until this recent comment. I’m just wondering where my comment went and if it was ever received.
I am now registered under the name Larsy. I guess what I am really asking is if I should go off of the suboxone and go back to feeling hopeless, sick with headaches and aches and pains everyday, having no ambition, tired and sleeping all the time, feeling constant anxiety and having panic attacks everyday, overwhelmed and feeling like everyday chores were a tackle to face, getting by with doing just the things that “had to be done” and praying for the evening to come so I could just go to sleep, or if I should stay on the suboxone (2 mgs. per day) and feel like my old self, the girl who loves life and is filled with ambition.
If anyone saw my first post from this morning Oct. 17, 2008 signed Laura, or if anyone can help me by sending me your comments, I would really appreciate it. Sincerly, Laura
Given what you are saying, why would you want to stop the Suboxone? My comments about tolerance– the tolerance to buprenorphine develops quite quickly– over a few days. If you have been on it for awhile and you still benefit from it, I would probably keep taking it– especially if it has the dramatic effect that you describe, and nothing else is working. Your post leaves me wondering why you are even asking yourself the question!
