... I take 20 mg of suboxon a day and it does nothing for pain ! (12 replies)
... I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Have you noticed this increase in pain, or is it something your Doc has suggest you might have? Do you think this is a conclusive thing, or is it just a theory that you may have? What you're referring to is a condition called "OIH" or Opiod Induced Hyperalgesia.
