  • From this study (9 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!

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • I have been taking suboxone since November of 2009. I started off taking 1
    8/2 tablet twice a day, and have been steadily decreasing. About midway point, I switched to the film. Then 2 months ago, I switched to the 2/0.5 mg film because during my taper, I had been dividing the drug into smaller doses. At this time, I am taking the equivalent of 1/.0125 mg once a day as I continue to divide the film, now into fourths. For about 1 year, I have been having hair loss. My hair is about 1/3 the thickness it used to be. I can not say for sure, but I suspect the hair loss is associated with the the film
    preparation of the drug. I am going to switch back to the tablet and see what happens. Of note, it would be of benefit to differentiate whether your respondents are taking the film or tablet preparation of this drug in the drop down menu.
