I was on Suboxone, a type of opioid, for years. It was the hardest time in my life trying to get off this medication. The withdrawal symptoms were so intense I couldn't help but give up. I went to the ER and was told there was nothing I could do, so they sent me home with benadryl for sleep. I was in immense pain, the worst depression and anxiety I've ever felt, and I lost sleep for 5 straight days, I thought I was going insane. It's been 3 years now and the symptoms still kick up now and there when I crack my bones. It is horrible pain that makes me lose sleep. It has ruined my memory, I feel partially brain damaged after taking this medication. I have never been the same since and it's hard to do day to day functions such as work or even meeting with friends. It has ruined my life... I am not suicidal but it makes me think about it. This drug should not have been on the market, ever. It is a drug equivalent to heroin.
Your best served by contacting a defective product attorney. Suboxone has helped some, a friend of mine is one. Use Avvo to find attorneys in your area. You're probably going to speak to more than one. Best of luck to you.
