Yes, there are possible side-effects when using buprenorphine and you must at all times keep your doctor informed and get treated for the same. You may talk to your doctor and find out the possible effects depending on the dosage you are taking. Please work along with your doctor int his matter and I hope you are also seeking addiction counseling as well.
