Welcome Kathy! Glad you are here. This is a great place for support. I have no personal experience with opiate withdrawal, however I am an addict in recovery. There are others here that have experienced what you have mentioned. Keep posting. Also, there is a substance abuse forum. You might also want to place an additional post there as well. You are not alone. We do recover.

Hi Kathy! Welcome to SR and congrats on your sober/clean time! Are you involved in any recovery work? Have you had the chance to read the Substance Abuse forum?

There's lots of great information and support here. Keep posting and reading!

Welcome, Kathy!

Here's a direct link to a specific suboxone site here on SR. For other pills, do check out the substance abuse forum. Congrats on your sober time. This is a great place for support.

Welcome to SR and I hope you take gentle care of yourself during this period. Have you seen a doctor about the withdrawals? A check up might be a good first step. Just saying. Hope the pain is over soon and you are on the other side of it. It will definitely be worth all your hard work.
