Hello everyone. I just want to say that yesterday, day 4 was my worst so far. I jumped on my computer and found this website and found all your posts to be very encouraging, so thank you for that. I was a heavy vicodin user for a year and a half. Got on suboxone around exactly this time last year. I was taking 4mg a day for 10.5 months, and the last month and a half I was on 2mg a day. I decided to "take the plunge" from 2mg a day 5 days ago. Sometimes I feel okay, sometimes I feel like hell. I knew I was ready to be done with it. My dr. gave me clonodine and an anti-anxiety medication. The clonodine has been helping, but I feel the anxiety medication makes my symptoms worse. I know, odd, isn't it? Everyones body reacts to things in different ways I suppose. Im glad I found this website though. Reading these posts shows me there is a light at the end of the tunnel :)

Hi MR1986 and welcome. I'm glad you've enjoyed the forum and that it's helped you. I see you're just at the very beginning of your acute withdrawals. It's good you have Clonidine and that it's helping. Be prepared to stay as active and busy (DISTRACTED!) as possible. You'd be surprised how much exercise is said to help, too. If you don't mind, may I ask why you jumped from 2 mg? It's still a pretty high dose. To ease both acute and post-acute w/d, most try to taper down into the micrograms before jumping.

I'm glad you found the forum just when you need the support to get through this. And we will be here for you. Hang in there and just keep posting.
