- Joint pain/depression/thinking unclear
I've been on Effexor 75mg. for 8 month's and recently have been decreasing this amount so that I can safely stop taking this all together. I believe that in the beginning month's of taking it, it had helped with my hot-flashes and anxiety. A few month's ago I've noticed that it isn't helping my anxi ...
- Ears thundering after suboxone or any opiate
Anyone notice the thundering in your ears after taking suboxone. Larger doses mostly and it actually happens with any opiate. It's a rumbling in the ears, I did read that hearing loss and opiates were connnected. hmmm
- Ulcerative colitis from suboxone?
Anyone else out there experiencing ulcerative colitis after multiple yearprescribed Suboxone? Suboxone stole a large portion of my life, and now I am considering going on a full-agonist analgesic until the buprenorphine bond has broken, and no more presence of it in my plasma. Insane!
- Suboxone treatment may have caused my trichotillomania
It's a long story of how I became addicted to opiates after 15+ years of chronic pain, but I decided to give up pain killers and try suboxone/subutex treatment. Shortly thereafter, I began pulling hair. First from my head, then when the bald spots became too obvious I started pulling from all over. ...

From this study (6 days ago):
Small, flat red dots on arms, legs, and chest. Appeared suddenly after taking suboxone one night
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I started taking suboxone for weekly migraines, two times a week, noticed it gave me energy, I started taking it more frequently, tried to get off and could not, now I am really hooked and wanting more as time goes by.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have epilepsy and chronic migraine syndrome, I always have a headache one side of my head. I have seizures everyday. Since last April, I have had one sort of a rash or another. I have not felt well for this entire time too. I have already come of Phenytoin, Atorvastatin, Lamictal and Topiramate. As I have been thinking it was one of my drugs. But it only makes things calmer for a couple of weeks and then the symptoms return to how they were before. I am waiting to see a rheumatologist currently, so still unaware of what is causing my problems.
I have had a CRP test and that was 9 at the time of the test. Now my smptoms are growing again, I don't know if that makes it likely it might be higher. I have spent this past year in a situation that makes you feel like you are being attached by your own body. It's very frightening when you feel as though you are going through this and people can't always see the rash but it is definitely attacking the skin.
