I would contact your doctor right away. I know of others who have experienced these kinds of withdrawal symptoms from Suboxone as well and usually they report that they only last a few days, but can be very miserable in the meantime. I would wonder however if perhaps your doctor could help you figure out how to handle these withdrawal symptoms in the meantime. It is NOT a time to turn back to drugs.
