Let me apologize in advance, im sure someone has already asked these questions before. There are just so many posts that when im looking for something specific i become overwhelmed. So today is my 4th day on suboxone. Im trying to dose just once a day and that was working ok until i worked today. Im a bartender and on my feet all day walking, bending, carrying, mopping, etc..half way through my shift my lower back started killing me. i havent had the back pain in a long time though, i guess taking pain pills all the time just blocked it out. so my question is "What should i do for the pain now?" If i Take another dose of sub will it help with the pain? Im not feeling cravings with the 4mg dose i take in the morning. i guess im concerned about this being addict behavior. but aleve isnt helping and i cant sleep. I cant remember ever hurting this bad before, aside from childbirth,lol tried a heating pad,no luck. Thanks in advance for any advice.

If I was you and nothing else was working I'd probably take another 2mgs. It will probably help. People who take Sub for pain management usually dose multiple times per day because the analgesic effect of Sub only lasts like 4-6 hours.

If you don't want to raise your dose you could try splitting it on days that you work so that you'll have some left over for pain relief after your shift.

Good luck and I hope you feel better and get some sleep soon.
