 Post subject: serious depression and sedation from suboxone?
PostPosted: Mon Apr 17, 2017 1:59 am 
I started Suboxone a week ago and I haven't felt like myself at all since. I'm not really craving opiates when I'm on it but my desire to do anything is pretty much gone, I no longer enjoy any of the activities I used to do and I don't have the motivation or energy to even leave the house unless I absolutely have to. I feel really out of it, I have a lot of ...

Are Opioids the Next Antidepressant?

ONE of the most painful experiences of being a psychiatrist is having a patient for whom none of the available therapies or medications work.

A while back, I was asked to do a consultation on just such a patient. This person had been a heroin addict in her early 20s. She had quit the opioid five years earlier, but her life was plagued with anxiety, apathy and self-doubt that ...

 Post subject: Seasonal Depression; That time of the year again...
PostPosted: Sun Oct 30, 2016 10:36 pm 
The leaves are changing colors, the temperature is dropping and I just want to throw the covers over my head and stay in bed and do nothing again. It's the time of year I was hoping I wouldn't have to deal with. "Maybe the Suboxone will take care of it this year," I thought to myself. Well, unfortunately "the winter time blues" as I like to refer to it, is well on it's way to ...

 Post subject: I'm on a lot of psych meds; Bupe improves my mood! Too much?
PostPosted: Sun Oct 23, 2016 11:02 pm 
Am I on too many meds? Is this a sustainable regimen? Bupe really improves my mood, it acts almost like a stabilizer/mild antidepressant. I'm thinking about dropping some meds but which ones? Am I on too much bupe? Just got back on 16mg again. Apparently, I'm on a lot? Well I know it's supposed to be a lot. I got off bupe in January and got back on it beginning of October '16.

 Post subject: Day 5 - Ups and Downs
PostPosted: Wed Aug 31, 2016 12:31 am 
Hey there.

I have some good news and some bad news. Yesterday was my 4th day on Suboxone. I took my prescribed 12mgs in 3 doses throughout the day. I was off from work, and I had a great day off. Instead of waking up and starting the process of tracking down my opiates folloed by being high all day- just to come down in the evening and be unpleasant to my family; I woke ...

PostPosted: Mon Aug 29, 2016 1:52 am 
Hey everyone.

Today was my third day on bup. I took my suggested dose of 1.5 strips and I feel pretty good. Very limited cravings, and still extremely surprised at the absence of withdrawal symptoms and also the energy levels and productivity I am able to maintain at work. I am very pleased.

Some side effects I am encountering are an increased appetite/empty feeling stomach, and today I was a little agitated. Some things that ...

PostPosted: Sat Aug 27, 2016 11:24 pm 
Hey guys. I posted my intro yesterday and wanted to stop by on my second day of using Suboxone. First off, I couldn't believe how well I felt when I woke up this morning. Usually when I wake up and know I have no pills, I get this petrified helpless feeling and dread the thought of getting out of bed. Today I felt okay, and was pleased to not be experiencing chronic withdrawal symptoms and ...

 Post subject: Clomid for treating low testosterone caused by Suboxone?
PostPosted: Thu Aug 04, 2016 7:20 pm 
Hi all,

I am a male, late 20's with low testosterone that is caused by my long-term Suboxone use. My urologist believes that Clomid will help with my low t and won't cause any fertility issues. I am wondering if Clomid's mechanism of action will help opioid-related low t? My doctor isn't positive if it will, but he says it's worth a shot. Has anyone had any success with Clomid and Suboxone-related low t?

PostPosted: Sat May 14, 2016 11:00 pm 
Hello. I am new to this site however I am not new to suboxone. Unfortunately I've been on it for almost 6 years. I have tapered myself down over the past 3 years from 24 MG per day (I know now that this was way to high a dose) to between 1-2 MG per day. Rrally trying to get off. Its time.

Over the last year I have been experiencing severe depression despite having many ...
