its only been 4 days since I started taking suboxone, but when I read how much better people feel since they started taking, I need to know how long did it take? I know everyone is different but I just want to know how long on average it takes to start to feel a little better? I do not like the way I feel and its making me get discouraged and very sad :(

I don't know any details about what you were on, how much suboxone you were prescribed, anything. All I can do is tell you my experience.

Due to a massive spine surgery my pain pills ramped up to 300mg of morphine a day. My Doctor started me on 24mg of suboxone in January. Within the first two hours I had horrible muscle spasms, the runs, vomiting, etc. (my body was getting used to the change I guess) Day 2 wasn't much better. Day 3 was mildly better. Day 4 was like Day 3. Day 5 was better but I still wasn't ready to do anything like go to the grocery store. Basically, I didn't feel human until about a week went by and I wasn't 100% functional until 10 days went by. Then it all got BETTER!!

Hang in there. Its a big change for your body and it does take time. God bless.

Hey, I hope you are feeling better now.
It took me about a week to start feeling "normal"

Whatever you do, do not take opiates and then take your suboxone you will go into very bad withdrawals. If you use opiates make sure to wait at least 24 hours before taking your suboxone.

I hope all is well :D
