The sub is making my life so much better, so im not trying to complain, just wonder if anyone else is going thru this too. I feel so energetic if im up and moving around but if i sit down i get extremely sleepy and start to nod off. I went to the movies tonight and after about 10min i couldnt keep my eyes open. I have also had problems keeping focused when driving. I discovered that sunflower seeds work great to keep me alert while driving. I have to constantly pop the seeds in my mouth and im fine. Its like the act of moving them around in my mouth to open them and then spitting them out is enough activity to keep my mind alert. i was getting scared to drive before i figured this out. I guess i could just keep sunflower seeds around all the time for any time i get sleepy but my mouth gets raw after awhile. Has anyone else dealt with a similar issue? If so, do have you a differant solution? Im willing to try anything. This nodding off is starting to make me feel like im popping pills again.

Hello dragonfly! I did actually go through this in the first week, but then it went away. If it is still going on for you though, I think that your dose may be too high. Not a lot, just a tad. What dose are you on, and how often? If you could answer that it may help for us to help you.

We've had several members here complain about the same side effects Dragonfly. Most of them have found that when they reduced their dose, the excessive sleepiness went away. Many, many members have said that they actually feel a lot better once they get their dose of Suboxone down.

Good luck, I hope you get this figured out soon.....it's no fun be super sleepy all the time.
