Kris on Sep, 22, 2012:
I am taking 8mg film once daily. I have been taking half in morning, half at night. I have read others experiencing my nightmares were also taking at night. Could that be the common denominator? Is there information about what time the patients ingested the suboxone? Please help. Thank you for your time and consideration.
