I don't know if I'm replying to your responses the correct way, I'm new to the site but here goes..
To give a little background, I was taking opiates (perks and oxycontin mainly) for 4 yrs, consistently. It became alot worse this last year, after the passing of my mother on March 17th,2009. Then, on Feb 13th of this year, my father passed away of a pulmonary emballism.. After that, I took an overdose of 200+ different types of pills including Percocet 10, Vicodin HP, Ambien CR, Xanax slabs, and Neurotin.. I was found by a family member, apparently flat lined a few times, had to get paddled and woke up with a breathing tube down my throat. I came out of it all with a collapsed lung and a lung infection caused from the overdose. Anyways.. once I came through, I started going through severe withdrawl.. so the doctor in the hospital put me on suboxone 8mg x 4.. and it helped, it was the first time i had taken suboxone. Then, I got out of the hospital 2 wks later and contacted a suboxone clinic. Once I went there, they felt 32mg a day was too high, considering im only 18 and wasnt on any street drugs, so they dropped me to 24mg. I didnt have a problem with the drop and didn't feel much discomfort at all... then for some reason, everything has changed this past week or two. I have been severely nausiated, had other stomach issues which im sure anyone who has experienced withdrawl has experienced before.. I have cramping of my muscles.. and not just like a muscle ache, it's a full on cramping (charley horse) type pain in my legs,calves and stomach. I've also been having hot and cold sweats. I've also had severe insomnia, but that's normal for me.
As for my medical history, I really dont have any issues besides depression. I have experienced panic attacks before and would definetly know the difference since ive felt both a panic attack and a withdrawl before. From what I hear, what I am experiencing is very uncommon with suboxone and I'm just really looking for answers or advice. I have an appointment with my doctor on the 30th, but I dont want to call him any sooner. He really doesn't know me that well and I dont want him to think im trying to score more suboxone from him. Again, any advice or suggestions would be so helpful. One request though, I am really going through a hard time in my life, so IF anyone should feel the need to be condescending as I seen one or two of my beginning replies were, please just dont respond. ANYONE that can help me, I'd so appreciate it.
