I was on subutex for a little over 6 years before that years of opiate abuse, I finally had enough and was tired of being dependant on a pill, so over a 10 day period along with my best friend, we tapered from 4mg a day to .5 stayed there for a week, Saturday the 9th we took our last dose.
Day-1 some chills
Day-2 chills feeling foggy walked 4 miles
Day-3 still freezing, sleep getting harder anxiety picking up very nauseous have to force myself to eat, only able to walk .5 mile today
Day4 same as yesterday
Day 5 chills upset stomach body feels so tired no motivation, only selpt 2 hrs last night, skin is crawling gotta move. Walked 4 miles
Day6 still no more than 2 hrs sleep chills not constant cold more than not so tired walked 5.5 miles
Day7 same as yesterday no new symptoms except I slept 6hrs walked 3 miles
Day8 finally took off my sweatshirt today temp seems to be regulating still wearing a lead suit lower back is really hurting
Day 9 started bad no sleep at all emotions everywhere can't stop crying took 12mg imodium helped so much took 5 hrs energy finally able to force self to move walked 3.5 miles
Day 10 slept 6 hrs last night feel good just this darn lead suit walked 4 miles
So far day 11 is going okay Slept 4 hrs last night anxiety not as intense I have some back pain no motivation but head feels clearer, I have been taking a ton of vitamins every morning with breakfast I drink as much water as I can handle and have been taking a 5 hour energy daily for the last 5 days, I know I still have a long way to go, and I'm going with my head up, this drug took too much from me I refuse to allow it to have anymore, I am not sure why but I have not had any restless leg (yet) no vomiting or diarrhea at this point mostly not sleeping back pain sneezing although not as much as last week, I wanted to post this to put a positive experience out there . I honestly believe if our minds are ready for this if your in the right place and you give your body what it needs it will prevail. SO FAR I had 1 really bad day I was laying on floor crying all I could think was stupid stupid girl what have you done!!! Until my jump partner kicked me in the butt literally made me move, Every morning I force myself to move. My best friend will post her experiences soon as they are different but still positive thank you for all the info here its helped me do this it gives me hope makes me keep fighting.
Run when you can, walk when you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up!
