  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I don't think I have completely recovered. When I started the medication, I almost immediately started noticing issues with difficulties urinating. I also noticed significant pressure in my prostate area. I have been off of the drug for 3 weeks now and still am noticing that I feel pressure down there as well as difficulty urinating. It has gotten much better, but 3 weeks out and I am getting scared of permanent damage.

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Symptoms getting old... Laxatives don't even work anymore, which is scary. I have no health insurance, self-pay for meds thru psychiatrist and have not had a medical physical in around 3-4 yrs. Have 7 yrs clean and sober, but wonder if previous alcoholism and long-term suboxone use have caused possible diabetes? I'm sick of peeing all night long, and always have to pee 30 min after I take sublingually, then again after another @45 minutes. Crazy. My hands look like lizards from being all dried out. Also, worried about the e-liquid I started 6-8 months ago being a diuretic? Symptoms became drastically worse after; however, I can at least BREATHE smoking it and don't want to stop!
