From this study (1 year ago):
took more Valium than I was prescribed and after ~ 2-3 weeks, started skin inflammation with small bumps ankles. back of legs, torso, back.
I am getting red honeycombe shaped patterns on my legs especially the knees which had been atributed to Amantadine. Now I inject subcutaneously to lower abdomen or outer side of thighs.I am experiencing pain in my legs and feet and just recently my legs and feet are covreed in red/white blotches. Veins in my hands front and back orickle and then stand out knotted like varicuse veins. Even the underside og my feet are affected. It hurts from the feet upwards to my knees and sometime to my thighs when I get up from sitting from lying n bed. Can be very intense sharp pain and quite immobilising. Concerned about damage to vascula system.
Luis Vega on Oct, 21, 2012:
To me those symptoms are suggestive of Neuropathy. Pain from peripheral neuropathy is often described as a tingling or burning sensation. There is no specific length of time that the pain exists, but symptoms often improve with time - especially if the neuropathy has an underlying condition that can be cured.

- Is taking 1.5 or 2 mg lorazepam while on suboxone dangerous, suboxone is being used for opaite dependence and pain and lorazepam is used for anxiety
I am taking about 20 to 22 MG of suboxone a day but I also take 2 mg of Lorazepam a day for anxiety, is it dangerous to do so. I do not exceed the doses mentioned at all.
