If I compare how suboxone worked for me for the first 7-8 years and for the past 1-11/2 years it seems to be completely different.
It seems to work for 20 minutes then extremely tired,dizzy,and depressed.No energy to do much of anything and sometimes it's work to perform basic health functions such as sleep,eating,etc...
I've reduced dose,increased it but it's like my body just doesn't produce or react to Suboxone like it did.
I've done a few searches but can't find anything that might suggest suboxone can loose its therapeutic effect.

The bottom line is withdrawals. Any other effect...well that really isn't what Suboxone is taken for. You're either feeling withdrawals, or you're not. Buprenorphine is either acting on receptors, or it's not there.

I've been 10 years ...and no difference.

rob I would think that what is going on with you is not related to suboxone. Sounds like life is boring or you have lost interest in it. Make an effort to bring excitement back into your life. If this does not work, maybe you have depression. Sometimes the only symptoms of depression are an inability to experience pleasure and hard time getting motivated to do anything.





rob 500. I have a notion that what is going on with you is not medication related. Sometimes our lives can get stale and we have to put in extra effort to keep interested in life. I am talking about spending time with loved ones, exercise, hobbies and whatever is important to you. If your inertia is too debilitating you might be dealing with depression. I have struggled with this beast and it can be every bit as debilitating as substance abuse. If you can't pull yourself out of the funk, consider seeing a therapist and if needed a psychiatrist. As long as you dose is high enough, try to take it for the day and forget about it. The average half life is so long, that as long as you dose is adequate, you should not feel the ups and downs you would with a short acting opiate. Good luck
