My Son was addicted to opiates for seven years after a severe shoulder injury at age 17. He wanted to get "clean" and was put on Suboxone. He has anxiety and depression, so his Addiction Psychiatrist added Adderal and Klonopin. He is now showing very scary side effects. I'm so worried. He is very slow at everything, his speech is slurred, it is hard for him to put words together. We think he may be having halucinations or fixations. He thinks there are mice and bugs in his house and no one else has seen any signs of them. All of this is terrifying me. When I looked up the side effects of Suboxone, his symptoms match up with the side effects. He's 26 and I'm not supposed to be talking with his Psychiatrist. He doesn't want to get off the Suboxone.
What should I do and where can he get help? I noticed some Betty Ford experts and I would love to hear from you. I'm a Nurse, but I have no experience with Psychiatry and addictions. I need to find some help quickly but don't know where to go.View Thread
