So its day 15 and as some may no day 14 was incredible but last night I ran into trouble with sleep and today my WD's seem a little more like day 13. I can't tell if its just that I got only a few hours sleep or is it maybe the Diazepam half life after a few weeks of taking 2.5-7.5 fluctuating daily with no rime or reason that just got up and caused the sleep issues and slightly elevated withdrawals today? Just kicking it around. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I assume it's just part of the process. Wednesday I felt pretty well and slept pretty well that night but yesterday I felt like crap and today I feel quite a bit better than Wednesday. The way you feel seems to bounce back and forth until things regulate in the brain. I guess this is what PAWS is like from what I understand.

Suboxone wd is pretty well known for its "rollercoaster" effect. Initially, you may feel some fairly significant ups and downs, but as time passes, just like a rollercoaster, the ride evens out.

Taking care of yourself by eating properly (and supplementing with vitamins for added nutrients) and staying hydrated (keeping your electrolytes up because we seem to sweat a lot during wd) will help minimize the ups and downs. Early in wd, light exercise is also good. Don't overdo it, though. If you overdo it, you're more than likely to feel that crash kinda feeling instead of the uplifting feeling that exercise should provide. Listening to your favorite music helps release endorphins, sex releases endorphins, a hot shower makes you feel good too.

Keep hanging in there, we do get better.....it just takes time.
