Canyons Dad (1 year ago):
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!
