subutex side effects

I have been on subutex 4mg 3X a day for three days now and have vomited,body sweats,head aches, and dizzy spells. I talked to my Dr. who wants me to STOP taking it. I have not craved and my chronic pain is tollerable. do people get used to it, or do the side eff. go away?     thank you  W.

what was your DOC? it does take a few days to adjust to sub.maybe a lower dose of sub may be of benefit.

You shoul not feel like this at all!  Do as your doctor said and stop now.
