I went through something very similar. I was in rehab and on a suboxon taper. I was completely off for about 2 days when all of a sudden I lost control over my tongue mucsels and by tongue began trashing and sticking out of my mouth uncontrollably. I also went to the er and they gave me 75 mg of benadryl and my symptoms lessened a lot. I also had uncontrolled twitching of my hands and feet. This symptoms started again as soon as the benadryl wore off, they also seemed to get worse the more anxiety i was under or more stressed i became. I went back on suboxon and i have not had another episode of what seems to be tardive dyskensia

Have you talked to other families going thru the same thing with their loved one in AA ? I understand from friends that Al-non works. (Al-non dot org)
In any case, I hope you have a friend or family member to talk and be able to stay a day or two. It just sounds like your husband is trying to keep the addiction away with so many meetings per day and being numb to avoid thinking. My sister went to meetings every day for 6 months. It is time for you to take care of yourself so you can support the family. Contact Al-anon ASAP. You are in my prayers.
