My Dr. started me on Suboxone for severe pain from stenosis, DDD, compressed nerve in L5S1 area. I started about 6 days ago and am having a bunch of side effects. I am experiencing relief in the pain in my butt and legs; and my Doc wants me to give a few more days or a week more to see if the side effects go away. Mostly dizziness, trouble focusing, feeling of being "high". I am a recovering alcoholic/addict and all my Docs know this upfront. But if these side effects don't away, I don't hink I will be able to continue it.
Does anyone have any experience taking Suboxone for chronic pain? I sure would like to "talk" with someone else and see what they experienced.
Thanks so much.....
