I have a cervical injury from March of 2010. I was on Norco from June 2010 until Dec, 2011. I was off Norco for approximately 24 hrs and then started suboxone. Within 1 hour my withdrawal symptoms were gone and within 2 hours my pain was controlled better than with the norco. But I feel high and I never felt high while taking the norco. My question is "Does the high feeling go away after taking suboxone for a certain number of days?". I stayed home from work because I didn't feel like it was a good idea for me to drive. About 2-4 hours after taking a dose I really feel under the influence. But my pain is basically gone! I actually got out of bed without pain. Anyone out there with taking suboxone for pain management out there? I would really appreciate your comments from your personal experience.
