    Within the last 2 weeks every time I take my dosage (4mg) in the morning 2-4mg in the afternoon I get light headed my muscles stiffen, chest pains, & I feel like I'm gonna faint. It's scary & I find it weird since I've been on it so long. Anybody else experience this? It feels like a mini-overdose ever time I take my meds. It's terrible!!!

    James Golden, MD responded:
    Suboxone contains buprenorphine, which is an opiate, so the chemistry of your brain may be changing because you have been on this medication for so long.

    I would recommend you schedule an appointment with a physician who is familiar with this drug and prescribes it frequently - an addiction medicine specialist, if possible.
