Concerned sister on Nov, 30, 2014:
My brother is 26 years old. He has been on suboxone for over a year. He has never had a seizure until last night. The first one was a Gran mal seizure it lasted almost four minutes. Then he had a second one before the ambulance arrived. His third occurred while in the er. He had been complaining for weeks with his stomach . He throws up daily. IV user also with the suboxone and I know that the film in the strip can cause clots and lead to death. I've told the doctor this but its as if they pay me no mind. I'm worried when he is released he will continue to shoot this drug. I will not watch him die.
Canyons Dad on Sep, 25, 2013:
I have been taking suboxone for 4 months and have never had seizures in my life. 2 months after being on 2 mg of suboxone I had a seizure... All of my tests came back normal... Another 2 months later I had 5 seizures in 6 hours... More studies are being done but I feel this is directly related, I am a 38 year old male with no health problems and no history of seizures so I feel suboxone is a dangerous drug!
