  • Why are my medications making me look bloated (1 answer)
    In 2008 I started the Suboxone Program. I Started on 16mg since then, I have been up and down on my doses. I was put on this drug as a result of my addiction to to over the counter opiates. I was also prescribed Seroquel, I stopped taking the Seroquel it wasn't helping me in anyway and I gained so much weight. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Bipolar and my psychiatrist put me on 300Mg Effexor, 20Mg Olanzipane and 1000Mg of Valpro. After 10 months I was able to stop taking the Valpro and Olanzipane. No matter how much weight I lose, I always appear so puffy and bloated in the face, especially under my eyes, they look like I haven't slept for weeks. I have very low self esteem as it is, this is making me feel miserable. I should also mention, that i got down 1MG of the Suboxone, after various stresses I went right back up to 18Mg. I have finally started to turn a corner and I am now reducing my dose at the right pace. It would make me feel so much better if I knew if even one more person was having this experience. Any feedback would be so appreciated. I send this with love from Australia :)
  • Can nortriptyline help with suboxone withdrawal (3 answers)
    My Dr just prescribed me nortriptyline for stress induced migraines, nausea, vomiting, and stomach pains. She knows about all my meds but the suboxone I'm not prescribed them I get them from a friend. I've been on the suboxone for about 5 years now and can't handle the withdrawals but I've gone from 16 mg a day to about 4mg. I would like to get off them completely and was wandering if anyone knew if the nortriptyline would help with the withdrawals or make them worse.
  • How soon can i start taking suboxone again after taking 1 dose of 30mg morphine sulfate?
    I've been on Suboxone (the film type)for 9 days. I'm averaging about 4mg a day. It doesn't help for pain at all, like I thought it might. So today I took 1mg of suboxone and thought I'd try half of a 60mg morphine sulfate er. Well it didn't do much like I figured but I thought I would try anyways. Now I just want to go back to my suboxone. So because i took the morphine, do I have to wait 12 hours before I can take the suboxone again?

  • Suboxone treatment may have caused my trichotillomania
    It's a long story of how I became addicted to opiates after 15+ years of chronic pain, but I decided to give up pain killers and try suboxone/subutex treatment. Shortly thereafter, I began pulling hair. First from my head, then when the bald spots became too obvious I started pulling from all over. It seemed to be triggered by stress or anxiety but not always. I did not make an association until recently, when I finally stopped the suboxone. It was two weeks of miserable withdrawal, much worse than from pain killers themselves, but I am finally out of the haze I'd be in all of that time, and I have no urge to pull hair whatsoever. I don't know how often the association of suboxone use and trichotillomania has been examined, but I wanted to share my experience in case anyone else is in a similar situation. Also, if you are considering starting suboxone treatment, don't. Withdrawal from opiates will lead to a few pretty rough days, but that's nothing compared to what you'll go through during suboxone withdrawal.
  • Pacemaker experience
    I had a pacemaker installed about 5 weeks ago. I went to the doctors because I was feeling fatigue, shortness of breath, I felt as if someone was holding my heart in their hand and I had some confusion and dizziness.

    To get to the point, after my first visit with my PCP I decided to go directly to emergency via 911 since my PCP was basically ignoring, or better put, had no sense of urgency regarding how I was feeling even though she knew my heart rate had dropped and was steady at 44 bpm, my normal rate 62 bpm.

    The night I was in observation at the hospital I dropped to 20 bpm, next day I had a pacemaker installed, had I not taken the initiative to call the hospital I don't know if I would have continued dropping until I was dead, I don't know enough about the science behind this to draw that conclusion but common sense tells me yes.

    I have explained this in another post but I cannot find it, not sure what I am doing wrong, so I am writing another post because I have more to add after a couple of weeks since my last post.

    The issue I have is I am still tired after more than a month after the installation of the pacemaker. I had the bpm (beats per minute) on my pacemaker increased from 60, the factory settings, to somewhere in the mid 60's.......so I thought. I went to the hospital twice to have my pacemaker "tweaked" but when I met with the cardiologist for my "one week" follow up, which took almost three weeks to see him due to his heavy schedule, he told me there were never any changes made to my pacemaker, I was still at 60 bpm. How could this be since I was told twice it had been increased? I had the wand on my chest and the nurse made the changes which were made due to my complaining about being exhausted still, the reason I went to the PCP in the first place five weeks ago.
    Was she playing mind games, thinking the power of suggestion would make me feel better? If so I am disgusted to think she would feel I was faking my feelings of exhaustion, what she did had absolutely no effect on how poorly I was feeling.

    To get to the point, I finally had my first meeting with the surgeon, he raised my bpm to 75 from 60, was going to go to 80 but changed his mind. The moment he made the change to 75 bpm from my original 60 he asked if I was feeling better, feeling better after 60 seconds of changing the bpm, how is that possible? I told him no, kind of too soon to tell. His reply was "it looks like we have done everything we can on our end, your heart was not significantly damaged, your pacemaker is working as it should, therefore there must be something else making you feel so poorly so I suggest you see an internal medicine specialist." My brain had a big WHAT sign flashing, I couldn't believe what he was saying, basically beat it and move on, I don't have the time to deal with you anymore. Lets see, the appointment lasted 25 minutes and he does not have the time to work with me anymore, sorry but that irritates the hell out of me.

    He was washing his hands of me, nothing else he could do so spend time and money finding out what the problem is with an internest, it is not my heart according to the cardiologist. The appointment ended and I left wondering how I was going to find out what is causing my issues.

    To my great fortune a nurse with 20 years experience teaching doctors and nurses how to use the pacemaker computer asked me to come into her office after my appointment with the cardiologist, she asked me this prior to seeing the doctor. Thank God she did as the doctor did not do a thorough job adjusting the pacemaker, she adjusted what the doctor had, tweaked the pacemaker a bit, had me walk for 10 minutes and come back to the office and did a bit more tweaking, I slowly started feeling a touch better. She asked me to come back in two weeks and she would see if the pacemaker needed to be tweaked a bit more. I was walking on air, still not close to my "normal", thrilled I was not just a number being tossed in the heap of unfixed people. I am feeling 70% better than how I felt prior to the doctor and her tweaking the pacemaker. Had she not been there that day and had the opportunity to do this I would be on a never ending search for what is making me feel so exhausted and!
    dizzy.

    There is a moral to this which I will let you draw your own conclusion. In my mind it is trust God will intervene, he certainly did when the nurse asked me to see her after the appointment with the surgeon. The reason I feel this way is because she was there and is only there on Fridays, the day I had my appointment. I never would have gone back again after my meeting with the doctor and I would have been spending needless hours and money looking through the wrong box for what ales me. Now it is obvious it was my pacemaker settings, my heart rate was set too low and the pacemaker was not fine tuned properly with the proper slope and other settings.

    Don't let these doctors do what mine tried doing with me, be aggressive and insist on more adjustments if you have issues similar to mine.

    AS I sit here I am still tired, I could easily take a nap but I am better than I was yesterday, significantly.

    Best of luck to all. Your comments will be very much appreciated.
  • Yawning after taking sub
    Within a few minutes after I take my Suboxone film I seem to get intense yawning event along with runny nose & watery eyes lasting 5-15 mins. Sometimes I can make it subside by drinking a lot of water if I am in a place I can get it. I have been on Sub for approx 5 yrs. & have only noticed this side effect during the past 1 yr or so. It doesn't seem to matter if I take 1/2 or a whole film, (4mg or 8mg.)
    While this isn't life shattering it can be quite annoying if I am out in public, at work, etc. The yawning gets so intense at times I feel like my jaw will unhinge & can't control it at all.
    It seems paradoxical to me. Previously taking Sub would stop any typical opiate withdrawal symptoms such a yawing & runny nose & eyes. Now it actually causes this effect. I don't get any other feelings of going into withdrawal. Just those I mentioned. Could it be a reaction to the naloxone?
  • Bactrim causes severe side effects (1 response)
    I get bladder infections on a regular basis. I do not have a doctor so I end up in the ER every time. I normally go to the same ER but not all the time. I have been prescribed medications like Cipro and Bactrim. Cipro usually knocks out the infection but I always get another one.
    For the last three years Doctors have been prescribing me Bactrim. In the last two months I had three bladder infections and took Bactrim for ten days seven and three. I didn't realize the medications themselves would harm me as well. Now I have severe abdominal pain every single day. I did some research on Bactrim and discovered it can cause several different kinds of stomach problems. I have been in pain for two months straight non-stop.
    I finally discovered that the Bactrim killed both the good and bad bacteria in my body and now my digestive system is off balance. I went to a natural food store and bought some probiotics. It helped relieve some stomach pain after four days, but if I forget to take it one time it comes back. I think something is wrong with me but not exactly sure what. When I get a doctor next month I will update this article.
    I just want to say that Bactrim has severe side effects, I DO NOT recommend taking this drug. Cipro is better in the long run.
