Losing Weight and No Appetite?

Does Suboxone hurt teeth? Why does the film taste bad? Am I high on Suboxone? If you have side effects to buprenorphine, discuss them here.

Losing Weight and No Appetite?

Post by Sniffah » Sat May 23, 2020 2:57 pm

Hi everyone. I have been on 12/4 bupe/nal for a little over a year. I take my sub as directed but haven't gained any considerable weight. I'm 5'6 and have always had around 144 lbs. On heroin I got down to 120. After going cold turkey one time long ago, I got back up to my average 145 lbs. However, this time after quitting H through a MAT program I have only managed to get up to 130 lbs. I have no appetite whatsoever.
Do you have any problems with no appetite while on Suboxone?

Thanks in advance~ Sniff

Can't say it ever affected my appetite. Back in my old heroin days I never cared about eating. Only ate enough to keep me alive. Who cares when you feel so good? Thank God those days are way behind me.

I'm not an advocate of pot but mj does induce the munchies. Dorito stock went up when the states started legalizing it. :mrgreen: Maybe some edibles. I quit mj back in my early 20's. Just didn't care for the high it gave me. Tried it again a few years back and still don't like it.
Don't take yourself so damn seriously

I've had lots of problems with appetite but I firmly believed it is because I'm constipated and my guts simply don't want anything extra thrown at them. This didn't use to be such a problem but it seems now I lock up at the slightest provocation.
