Okay everyone, today marks the day of my 34th day off of Suboxone. To be honest, I am at about a 75%-80% of feeling normal. However, looking back on the timeline of when I jumped off, it definitely seems that everything has gotten better and better with time. On the other hand, the symptoms DO fluctuate in ways that make me upset, but it's still bearable. Sleep isn't that bad, but I still have nights where I wake up at 5 in the morning completely wired and jittery. It seems atleast for me, it is better to only sleep/nap when I know that my body is entirely ready. I got about 7-9 straight hours of sleep last night, which is a start! Other than that, my legs and my back still ache, but the annoyance is bearable. My mood still swings and everyday from 12-3 my energy level drops. Anyways, although this withdrawal is really drawn out when compared to a full-agonist, its definitely less intense. I thought that by sharing these thoughts with everyone I could ease the hesitant minds of those who are thinking of jumping. My biggest piece of advice is to taper to a very low dose before jumping off. It made things much more manageable in the long run. Also, after week two everything just gets more and more easier. So good luck to everyone! If anyone has any questions about anything, don't hesitate to ask. It brings me joy to give my insight on the subject. :wink:

So how are you doing on this beautiful Monday? Each day you get further away from Suboxone and closer to how you really feel w/o drugs altering your mind.

No one responded to your positive post but I think it's important to acknowledge gratitude whenever possible.

Thanks for posting an UP message,


Don't take yourself so damn seriously
