Hi, I have been taking about 12 mgs of suboxone for about 16 months. I want to taper down and my doc suggested the sublocade injection so I went ahead and got it this week. I did as much research as i could but there really isn't much info from people who receive it. Anyway, I got my first shot this past Monday at 3pm (it is now Wednesday)
The first day I felt great, yesterday and today I have pounding headache, and a tiredness I just can't shake. My doctor said I may need to continue taking oral suboxone for a few weeks after I get the first shot ( which makes no sense to me, isn't the the POINT of getting the shot, to not need suboxone anymore?!?)
Anyway, I need some advice from people who get Sublocade.
1) What should I expect during the first month of my first shot?
2) Should I continue taking suboxone orally for now?
3) any other information, tips. warnings, whatever you have for me would be appreciated!
