You were on a pretty small dose of narcotics compared to most of us. I was using about twice as much as you did when I started suboxone and I had a very hard time getting adjusted to it. My problem was that I got so sleepy that I could hardly stand it. I never got a DWI, but was actually pulled over by Highway Patrol after taking suboxone because they suspected I was under the influence. A few cups of coffee and making sure I was't drowsy before I got behind the wheel helped ,even so there were a few times that I had to pull over and take a short nap before proceeding. Suboxone is stronger than vicodin(read what Dr. Junig has written about suboxone and it's potency.) I hope that you are able to stick it out. I felt better after a week or so and after a few months felt normal on subxone. Jean

lp - How strange! Don't think I've read anywhere before about Sub causing dizziness. I'm sure it's possible and that must be what caused it. I suffer from episodes of vertigo/dizziness myself. Nothing to do with Suboxone as I've had the problem for years. It really is a miserable feeling. I'll tell you what works pretty well though is Meclizine. You can buy it over the counter as Bonine or non drowsy Dramamine. I know it sounds lame but it does help me quite a bit and maybe it will help you. I hope so. It would be a shame for you to have to stop Suboxone because of this.
