  • Ears thundering after suboxone or any opiate
    Anyone notice the thundering in your ears after taking suboxone. Larger doses mostly and it actually happens with any opiate. It's a rumbling in the ears, I did read that hearing loss and opiates were connnected. hmmm
  • Ulcerative colitis from suboxone?
    Anyone else out there experiencing ulcerative colitis after multiple yearprescribed Suboxone? Suboxone stole a large portion of my life, and now I am considering going on a full-agonist analgesic until the buprenorphine bond has broken, and no more presence of it in my plasma. Insane!
  • 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. ...

    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.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I think it was brought on by the Suboxone. I took 3-4 a day for approximately 4 years starting 11 years ago. Stopped them but realized they were helping with my depression. After trying every antidepressant with no help the Suboxone was wonderful. I got back on it but only taking 2-3 a day for another 2-3 years. Insurance stopped paying about 9 months ago. I continued to take them, but only 1 a day for another 1-2 years. Now, I take 1 occasionally. When I completely stopped the neuropathy gradually began. It was around Sept. I began to notice my feet felt like they were numb. With shoes on I felt like they were wet. I also noticed getting weaker and my family noticed I was walking slow, etc. Feel terrible with terrible problem of something like hot flashes, but those were over years ago. Have lots of nausea. My doctor used some type instrument and I have very little feeling on the bottom of my feet. He is sending me to a neurologist.

  • I never had any kind of breathing problem before i started taking suboxon. I was in the military and had plenty health check ups before hand. Several yrs after starting the suboxon, i started experiencing breathing problems and severe dizziness. After a yr of misdiagnosis my dr. Decided to do a lung biopsy after results from a xray and ct of lungs. After the biopsy was complete, i was told i had idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis! With a prognosis of 3-5 yrs. Even after all this, i was still perscribed suboxon every month. All the dr told me that the suboxon had nothing to do with my diagnosis! Well.....its been 2 yrs since my diagnosis and im still on suboxon. Only recently have the dr started to want to wing me off of the suboxon. All i know is i had no breathing issues prior to suboxon and now following the suboxon, i do!
