We have numbed our emotions on opiates. feeling the high" in the begin'g, and gradually
building up our tolerance, to where we no longer enjoy the effect from the drug.
then we found suboxone. where it is keeping us from w/d, and notice we do have emotions that
we are aware of. us being on suboxone". i think just give's us a more clear view and notice our
emotions are not as full as we have wanted them to be wile using. but before we started taking drugs".
our emotions were normal. taking suboxone every day, with out the high" we are going to
notice more of the effect on our emotions.

Regarding my experience with being on Suboxone for almost 7 years and
dealing with my emotions while on this medicine:

Yes, I DO believe that most of all of my different emotions and feelings ARE
a bit "muffled" while on Suboxone. For one example, I find it difficult to cry when I feel like crying.
(However, I am not blaming this ALL on the Suboxone- as I have always had trouble with
accessing and outwardly expressing my feelings and emotions.) But, that is one of the biggest
reasons why I had started using opiates in the first place- to "numb" my feelings and emotions.

As well, I have experienced what had felt like increased restlessness and anxiety when I had tried to taper/
go off of subs at least 3 times, during these past 6+ years of being on Suboxone, within at least 5 days
of stopping the sub.

I am now on 4 mg of sub per day- and will eventually (am not sure exactly when, though) have to
taper off of subs and go off of them due to insurance reasons- as I have previously posted.

This is just my "2 cents" on this subject.
