I AM NOW 66 YRS OLD, HAVE NEVER SMOKED OR DRANK ALCOHOL. EAT VERY HEALTHY AND DO NOT LIKE TO TAKE PILLS OR DRUGS... I JUST STARTED TAKING SUBOXONE 2 WEEKS AGO AGAIN FOR A NERVE INJURY TO MY JAW , AND AM FIGHTING SEVERE PAIN...IT SEEMS TO HELP STOP THE PAIN VERY EFFECTIVELY.. I AM TAKING ONLY WHEN I NEED IT , AND AM TRYING TO GO ABOUT 4 TO 5 DAYS IN BETWEEN DOSAGES.. MY DOSAGE IS 2/.05 ONCE A DAY... I TOOK IT FOR OVER 3 YEARS BACK IN 2010 TO 2013, BECAUSE THE PAIN WAS UNBEARABLE , SAME DOSAGE BUT 3 TO 4 TIMES DAILY, AND IT EVENTUALLY CAUSED ADRENAL FATIGUE AND THYROID FATIGUE. SO I WEANED MYSELF OFF OF IT OVER 1 YEARS TIME, HOPING I COULD STAY OFF OF IT...BUT IT HAS BEEN A PAINFUL STRUGGLE FOR 2 YEARS, AND I AM HAVING TO GO BACK ON IT , BUT MORE CAREFULLY, BECAUSE I CAN NOT FIND ANY OTHER PAIN PILL THAT WILL STOP THIS PAIN, EXCEPT HEAVY OPIODS, WHICH I WILL NOT GO BACK ON EVER AGAIN. I WAS ON THEM FOR SOME TIME BACK WHEN THIS INJURY HAPPENED, AND THE DOCTOR PUT ME ON THEM.....THAT WAS PURE HELL ON EARTH, I TOOK MYSELF OFF THEM BACK IN 2010, AND THAT WAS WHEN WE DISCOVERED THAT SUBOXONE HELPED WITH THE PAIN, BUT DID NOT KNOW AT THAT TIME THAT IT CAUSED ADRENAL FATIGUE... DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS ADRENAL FATIGUE, AND IF YOU DO WHAT DO YOU TAKE TO REVERSE IT SO IT DOES NOT HAPPEN....WOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR ANY ANSWER THAT IS HELPFUL.... THANK YOU, CAROL
