I have had 2 blood tests within the past couple months that have come up with high tryclycerides. I am curious if anyone else has ever had this issue after starting suboxone?

I may have had it before and not known but I feel like suboxone has made me gain some weight recently. I am overall healthy, I am only 23 and am 6'2" 195 pounds now. I was like 180 2 months ago. I have just started exercising recently but haven't gotten into it as much as I would like/plan to. I also just quit smoking cigarettes 8 days ago. Thanks

Very low test amount of people experienced that symptom.

I'd say your weight gain may have something to do with increased appetite from quitting cancer sticks. Congratulations by the way, that's extremely impressive while on Suboxone.

Maybe you're part of the .18 percent? I've got no idea however.

6'2 195 pounds isn't a bad place at all to be. Exercise it up and you'll look jacked haha.

At the beginning, I gained weight also. Not a whole lot. Maybe 15 lbs but after a few months it came off after my body got adjusted to the medicine. Congrats on quitting smoking.!
