My Son has been on Suboxone (buprenorphine and naloxone). Withdrawals From Suboxone

Q: Hello I have a question. My son has been on Suboxone (buprenorphine and naloxone) for approx 8 months. 1 8mg film daily. Finally, he has smartened up and wants to be rid of this lifestyle forever. So on December 17, 2012, he took his last half. He had a prescription of tramadol from a previous injury so in order to eliminate the withdrawal from the suboxone he has been taking the tramadol. If it has been 13 days without any suboxone will he still go through the physical withdrawals from it? If so how long do they typically last? If he were going to suffer any withdrawals wouldn't they have already kicked in? Thank you so much for taking the time to help me.

A: Ok tell me for how long had he took opioids? and ( which drug he was addicted to). Suboxone is used to treat opioid addiction. Was he addicted to other stronger opioids?
Has he encountered any withdrawal symptom? 
What kind of symptoms did he have? and is he absolutely fine now?

Q: If I were to have to guess I would say he was on Norco for approx 4-5years on and off. Since he started Suboxone he has not experienced any withdrawals and that was around the end of April beginning of May. Since being off the Suboxone the only withdrawals he has experienced is a loose stool, dilated pupils, and lower backache. All of which have subsided now. So it has been 16 days since he stopped and is down to 1-2 tramadol a day. So with all that is the end in sight? Thank you so much.

A: Ok, did he suffer from any injury in the past, tramadol, Norco, and Suboxone can be used as painkillers. If he has no signs and symptoms of withdrawal, such as confusion, tremors, blurred vision, headache, sweating, uncontrolled aggressive behaviour, depression etc then he is fine. but it is my personal opinion. Not Challengeable, you should have his physical exam done, from a qualified registered medical practitioner.
Thank you
