It's pretty much started as soon as I started on them. I've been on them for almost 5 months now... doesn't seem to be getting any better or worse.. just wondering if any others had same issues

Hey Scottyb welcome!

I haven't had any kind of side effects like that from buprenorphine. I'm also not sure yours is from bupe or not. There could be some circulation problems or something that just could have started around the time u started suboxone. There's lots of things we didn't notice with our health in active addiction and begin noticing it after we start our buprenorphine treatment.

Do u take the strips or a pill form? Have u ever had issues with naloxone? Hopefully Dr Junig or docm2 can help ya with this question. I wish I could be more help to ya.

Hey Scotty,

the only thing I can think of is do you have any swelling in your hands or legs? its unusual but some folks on bup do get peripheral edema (swelling). If the nerves are compressed from the swelling as they travel thru and around the limited bent elbow space and thru the tight wrist space, they can get pressure and numbness.

Do you have occupational or hobby use of your arms and wrists, that unrelated to bup could cause a carpal tunnel or ulnar tunnel?

Which fingertips? all 5 or just some? That info would help. Welcome!

Are you a smoker? I found my cold hands improved hugely when I went from smoking -> vaping -> nothing.

Numbness in hands and feet I have but I can't say it's from Suboxone.
Physical labor,blood sugar,neropathy,etc... and many more.

my fingers are numb on one hand. i'll eventually have to go to the chiropractor. i have a bone spur in my neck which causes it.
not sub related, at least i don't think. i've had a couple flare ups since on subs.
