I have just finished my first week on Suboxone and generally things are now going alright. I am slightly underdosed and my keyworker has said I will be raised from 4mg to either 6 or 8mg on friday. This is generally due to the fact that I get cravings around 5 to 6 hours after each dose of 2mg. Anyway,......

Despite me getting these cravings I go to bed and sleep like a log which I always have done on any opiate I have been on. The problem I have is when I wake up, I am very, very groggy for around 30minutes to a hour. I was just wondering if this is going to be a permanant thing, does everyone suffer from it and is it something that will go once my body becomes accustomed to the pills.

Thanks

My husband experienced the same hang over feeling you're describing...I wanna say it went away around week 2.

It could be that you haven't stabilized yet. It could also be that since you're still dosing more than once per day that you're taking your last dose too close to bed time. Ideally, it's best to dose once per day, usually in the morning. Give it time and wait until you're stabilized on the dose that you'll be on permanently. That may fix the problem.
