My son is on suboxin(sublingual), for herion addiction. I have noticed that he is always very tired, and moody. Some time, it seems he acts the same way as when he was using heroin. Is this normal? If not, what are the effects of this drug?

my boyfriend is on methadone right now, i think they are the same idea. the tiredness and moodiness are normal. The effects are often the same as heroin, except he's not getting high hopefully he'll start weaning off of it soon and everything will be "normal" again, at least that's what I'm hoping for with my boyfriend, he's been using and clean on and off since october and is finally back on the methadone again for the 3rd time and it should take 2 or 3 months hopefully no more until he's done with all of that. Good luck.
