I wet to my doc 7 days early because of running out early. I took my new script to pharmacy and said, this is early so I won't be using insurance. My doc said you can call him if necessary. Well no one wanted to. They filled two per day for three days. On the third day I asked to fill the rest on insurance for the next day. I was one day early. When I called the next morning to have my daily two filled the pharmacy manager said no we won't be filling it for another 5 days. Go to the ER for your withdrawals but don't come here because I won't give it to you. Has this happened to anyone else????

I have to agree...your husband is playing a dangerous game as if and when he is found out for getting two scripts off two different doctors, BOTH of them will more than likely cut him off. Better to have one doctor prescribing you what you need, than none at all. I would suggest he does the smart thing and plays by the system. Many have tried to beat it, none have succeeded (for very long) that I have heard of. Best of luck to him and you.

Sisi , he isn't going to be able to go to two different drs and get two different prescriptions. It doesn't matter if he pays cash for one and insurance pays for the other one of how they are paid. Each state has a Prescription Monitoring Program and drs and pharmacists can look patients up and see exactly what meds they have gotten filled, who the dr was, and all of the details. If he is seeing two drs one of the drs is going to find out and dismiss him. It is highly doubtful that the pharmacist will let him get the prescriptin from the second dr filled, although it might depend on when he got his prescription from his regular dr last filled. If he is able to get the prescription from the new dr filled, he won't be able to get the next one from the new dr filled.

Maybe they are referring to the fact that any opiate, whether it be synthetic, natural or even a replacement therapy such as methadone or suboxone, generally all these drugs imitate and replace the natural dopamine levels in your brain. That's why when you stop using them, you generally feel quite depressed as your brain has forgotten how to make this chemical on it's own, and is reliant on the synthetic input. I don't know if that's the chemical imbalance you are asking about??

Husband is a long time suboxone user it turned his life around.. In fact it gave him a new life his dr of 4 years cut him an is still charging him a ridiclous fee so my husband is seeing a new dr tomorrow. My question is...is this ok? He pays out of pocket but uses insurance to fill script. He tried being honest in pursue of a new doc but the prices were all to high. So now hes seeing the new dr as a "new" patient. Any advice?

For those of us in terrible chronic pain we are treated like junkies and now any opiod based med is being withold where possible from patient. I say if I wanted to be a junkie I would go to any street corner it would be easier than simply refilling my script! So why would I even bother to go the doctor route then? Obviously because we are not junkies. Anything at any time is addictive.

I'm really sorry that happened to you, it seems no matter what a pharmacy and pharmist see a suboxin or subtext script your judged from the get go no matter what your medical condition is!!:(. It's discrimination and wrong no matter how you got to the point of being on bup your put into the junky category bulls##t. There are now many different reason and situations why people take bupenopin so yes I have personally been looked at like a junky for being on the same meds!!:(. I'm sorry but for anyone to be put on strong opiates for a long time are going to have problems no matter who you are it happens to every human. If it does not than your special or not normal haha. I'm talking 10 years plus on strong opiates fentaynal & O.C 24/7. Wish I was never put on that medication problely wouldn't have this imbalance of brain chemicals. But everyone works different as far as the brain goes. Sorry for long response but I do get it and it's sad.

Why would you keep them in a spot where your 18 month old can reach them? I have a 3 yr old and they are somewhere where it is not possible she will ever get to them. You can say they can't open them but accidents happen. What if they found a way to rip it open and injested them? Your child could die and it would be 100% your fault. Sleep well knowing that.

Please furnish me with the name of one thing that is non addictive.

You'd be doing the work a huge favour.

Even chocolate is addictive!

I don't think anyone believed her story....why would an 18 month old pick them up and THROW THEM IN THE BIN???? They would play with them or something, the fact that the baby "threw them out" just added another layer of BS to her story. Obviously still living the junkie life, telling lies and hoping people will believe them!! So dangerous, paracetamol can kill a child so why would you take the chance??

This is nothing more than bad pharmaceutical practice and should be reported to the relevant authorities such as the Pharmaceutical Board.
I too ran out of Suboxone over a weekend thinking I had another refill as my doc had increased my dose (but not noticed my pharmacist accordingly).
This is when you discover that the drug store and doctors are nowhere to be seen.
Disgraceful bad practice. Unprofessional.

I have often thought about launching a legal case against the makers of Suboxone (Reckitt Benckiser) as myself, a man I know here in Australia, plus a few people on this forum have all said that it was described as being "non-addictive". What a joke. Thinking back, oh how I would love to be back in that doctor's office, I would HAPPILY choose to go through the week's withdrawal from opiates and be done, than go through the MONTHS of withdrawals off this stuff, it's hell. My doctor spruiked it to me as being like a wonder-drug, told me it was non-addictive, and here I am, nearly 8 years later still taking it. Can't go a day without it. And that's not so much the physical symptoms, it's the mental side of it. Anyway, I have no idea how I would even go about legal proceedings but I think about it all the time!!!

Because it's obviously bs. Knowing suboxone dissolves in the mouth it was completely irresponsible of her to leave them out. Her baby could've died. However I don't believe the story to begin with. She obviously took more than prescribed or sold them.

Jaime, I know you posted this 3 years ago... I hope you are doing well... I just wanted to let you know that you have to be real careful about the things you post on here about. You shouldn't leave suboxone around that your 18 month old was able to pick them up and throw them out.. Also, you shouldn't mention that you wish that the lady who had extra subs each month that she lived closer...

I'm so sorry that's weird. I just came across this. Generally my doc will write me a one month prescription but I'm seen every 28 days but get 30 days worth. I never had a problem but today my appt was 7 days early and I took my script to the pharmacy and they don't ask any questions but said my insurance denied it because it was too early. I told them I'd just pay cash but they said they would have to call my doctor which they did and he said it was ok so the pharmacy called my insurance company back and was actually able to get an override and they paid for all but 30 dollars worth!!! That sucks your having to deal with that. I would say change pharmacies. Sounds like they are just a**holes. I've never had a problem like that and am generally a few days early.

I asked the same thing...it's the first and last thing my chemist says to me as he hands over my monthly supply "keep these out of reach of the kids", he knows I have two young kids. Could you imagine a child taking something like this? The colour alone would be an attraction....I don't believe her story anyway, that her kid "threw them away"...sounds a bit sus to me....I treat this stuff the same as any poison, keep them up high in a cupboard where no child could ever reach.
