We all know the strain suboxone puts on your body and mind. I have done a bit of research and can't find much info on the subject. But is there anyway I can ensure my body and mind are as healthy as possible while on subs? Such as certain vitamins/herbal supplements I can take to help my mental and physical state in as much tip top shape as possible? I know exercise is a key factor but the lethargy is incredibly difficult to get past when I'm strained for energy and motivation. Any advice would be great.

Hi there

this is a really great topic.....and I don't really remember anyone asking about it before you?
well, they've asked more precise questions, like is suboxone bad for ___ part of the body.......

anyways,,
the ONE thing my doctor does, and has always done, is check my liver.
my liver function or "numbers" weren't great when I started suboxone therapy, but they improved
drastically afterwards..... and that's the ONE effect that they do have listed, on the website, is that it
strains the liver for some reason.
then add on top of that,
alot of us, used to take ANYTHING and EVERYTHING ,,, LOL
not so good for the liver........
i think that's why MY Numbers weren't so great.

That's the one piece of advice I can give, to ask to have that "monitored"
Hopefully someone else with a lil more knowledge will chime in!!!!

Oh,and as ALWAYS
you want to be taking the LEAST Amount as possible, to battle cravings.... being above the "cieling" level is always good.
but obviously the LESS of this you take
the better........the less of anything we take the better, really.

OKAY, so I'm gonna post a video about the cieling level, hopefully that wil help explain things a lil bit better.
If not, then just ask again,,, or something specific,,,, the suboxdoc (administrator) has a Q & A video blog thing,
and the link there is

http://vyou.com/jeffreyjunigmdphd
you can post a specific question, you can also SEARCH the videos, there's a ton of them, and I haven't QUITE figured out how to post the tiny lil video, here. I've tried several ways, but it's just NOT WORKING......

anyways, here's the ceiling one.

Link to the REST of the youtube videos.....

Thank you very much for your insight. I really appreciate it. I can't get the video to work though because it says it's private.

yea sorry about that,,,, IT JUST CHANGED..... I used to use a bunch of his videos to explain
different things, ya know, cuz they were sooo good. and anyways like two weeks ago,
if that, they ALL CHANGED to "private video" except ONE.....

so sorry about that,
you can still READ about ceiling effect and all other suboxone topics here

suboxone talk zone blog
http://www.suboxonetalkzone.com/best-of-stz/

well when I went to ceiling effect, it just had the SAME video, that doesn't work.
but there's still lots of good information there!!

Water. Water. Water.

I avoided water while on any kind of opitates including suboxone and that wasn't a great habit to get into. If someone could have reminded me to drink water consistently, I would have appreciated that.

Teejay's list rocks.

I like TeeJay's list. Should be what you do no matter being on anything.

I'll add to it, comedy helped me on suboxone. Getting those endorfs kicking in the brain. Make a goal to laugh often.

Go to the doctor and start getting annual physicals. My Sub doctor also sent me for yearly liver tests.
