Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

How long have you been on suboxone? Any recent dose changes? When was the last time you used opioids other than suboxone? This might be opioid withdrawal. if it isn't, you may benefit from treatment with an SSRI medication such as Zoloft or Lexapro to treat your anxiety and mood.

i had a c section 10 days ago. everything went smoothly. the doctor perscribed percaset for pain. i took half of what the bottle said because im not used to taking pain pills. i ran out yesterday and started having radiating "nerve like" pain from where they did the spinal tap. I called the doctor & they said it was normal & perscribed loratab & motrin. i feel like my heart is in my throat, kind of like its skipping beats. I have also been under an enormous amount of stress since i"ve gotten home from the hospital. Is the irregular heartbeat feeling coming from one or all of these changes? I have no chest pain at all
