From this study (2 weeks ago):
After these symptoms became extreme I began seeing a family doctor for them, different from my Suboxone prescribing doctor. He started me on 50mg per day of Prestiq and .5mg of Xanax twice a day. Soon after the visit with my family doctor, I realized the Suboxone was the cause of the anxiety aggravation and paranoia. On the next visit with my Suboxone prescribing doctor, I began a taper and noticed the symptoms lessening as my dose dropped until finally off.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I am almost 6 months pregnant. I was just given 1 mg suboxone and I have a terrible pain between my legs. Does this mean there's a problem???
From this study (1 month ago):
Heavy light yellow discharge no improvement after 2 diflucan treatments.
Mucous is difficult to cough up but I know it's there and it too is yellowish. Mucin ex, sudafed, or allergy medication has no effect.
