Weightloss While Taking Suboxone /subutex
Posted: August 10, 2021, 10:49 AM

Y’all I’ve been googling for days now. Suboxone has made me gained weight or just over eating during the pandemic. I see these stories of weight loss on subs so I’m going to assume that maybe just maybe if I try to lose weight while still on MAT that it will actually work? I’m terrified that I’ll go on a diet and it won’t work at all due to the auboxone causing the weight gain and fluid retention. I’m on 16 mg it’s been 1 year and a half on this medication. Worried about my body, I can’t wear my wedding ring because
Of the swelling.

Having the same issue with weight loss and suboxone. Initially it was okay cause like who doesn’t want to loss 5 pounds… but 5lbs has turned it 15-20lbs and I’m now towing that line where my BMI is getting closer to the 18s. It was like 19.3 the last time I checked it. I have reduced from 20mg in January to 8mg now. I am curious if my rapid taper is playing a role. I was an IV user. I wouldn’t say my diet has changed massively but I did used to eat a lot more candy when I was using, now it’s like I don’t really like it as much anymore but I would argue I generally eat more food, just more spread out.

I’m wondering if I should slow down my taper. I just don’t want to lose momentum and end up on sub for years/forever. I’d like to be able to leave the country some day without worrying about withdrawal or medication.

It kind of seem like the people here are losing even without significant tapering.

I have been on subs for 4years now. I started at 175 now I am 145. It is scaring me to death. At first I thought it was from vaping. So I quit that and went back to cigs. Eating a half of cream pie every night or 2 bowls of ice cream just to gain weight and it won't help. I'm still shrinking it's like I might have ASL or something. But coming to this site and seeing everyone elses post I know it's the subs. Thx for posting guys
