My husband and I have been on subs for 3-4 mo. at 32mg. We were partial to hydro for ten yrs, using 12-15 10's at a time. He has been having alot of trouble sleeping at night, I'm doing fairly well. He's tried everything, even my klonopin. I don't know if maybe its just stress (explained in ny intro) or if it could possibly be other meds (lyrics,wellbutrin, celexa)? Any thoughts or ideas?

It's impossible to be sure what is causing the sleeplessness, it could be any number of the things you mentioned and unfortunately, I don't know of any tricks that you wouldn't already know about. Melatonin, over the counter sleep aids, hot baths.. etc.

32 mgs is a lot. Have you guys considered lowering your dose a bit? I'm not entirely sure 32 mgs is doing anyone any favors and could be causing more problems, maybe even lack of sleep? I had a heavy heroin & oxycontin (80s) habit and when I look back at being on 24mgs of sub, I think it was unnecessary.


Edit to add: Does your husband drink enough water? Dehydration can cause sleep problems. I'm surprised the klonopins don't help, unless he's built up a tolerance. Does he take them throughout the day too?
