Anyone else taking Suboxone for pain?
My Pain Mgmt Dr. just started me on Suboxone on Monday afternoon for pain relief from DDD, Stenosis and sciatic flareup.
Is anyone else currently prescribed Suboxone for their pain? I was curious as to the level of pain relief you are having and also what if any side effects are troublesome?
At first I had some dizziness and general feeling of being "Out of it". Hard to focus. That is getting better each day. However, I still have a feeling of being high. Pain relief is very good....better than Vicodin.
