suboxone side effects

side effects from snorting suboxone ## Common side effects while taking Suboxone are: Nausea and vomiting, drowsiness, dizziness, headache, itch, dry mouth, miosis, orthostatic hypotension, male ejaculatory difficulty, decreased libido, and urinary retention. You should not snort Suboxone, it could be dangerous. To learn more click on the link below... Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## Yes I was wondering about my husband he's been on suboxin for over a year now from opiate addiction. He snorts them cause he says he can save money that way. Well he can never get up in the day time. He just sits up all night and sleeps all day. I was wondering if he takes it late in the night will it make him stay up and keep him from sleeping? I can...

will suboxone show up in a dot drug test
84 Replies RSS
I am going to get my cdl class a licenses... Will suboxone I took two weeks ago show up in my screening? They send it to a lab ## The information I have from someone who is prescribed them and from his doctor, is that it does not show up as an opiate on any test, period. Also, it has to be tested for specifically, so unless they by chance add suboxone to their panel test then it will not show up. The most reliable information I have is that it is a completely separate drug test than 5 or 10 panel, and it costs a lot of money. This might sound funny but I also hear from good sources that they only test you for suboxone to ensure it is in your body (in other words: you are receiving it from a treatment clinic and they need to ensure you're taking it). I'm sorry I can't just sa...

You can take benzos while your on suboxone
280 Replies RSS
I've been seeing alot of posts regarding taking benzos while on Suboxone.It is ok to take a benzo w/suboxone as long as you're taking the subscribed dosages you'll be fine.Now if your taking 3 or 4 8mgs of Suboxone an say 5or 6 Xanax that's not good,tha's where the repored deaths have come from.I've been on Subs for 5 yrs ive been subscribed klonopin an currently taking valium w/it a it's fine,I'm on a low dose an only take what i am perscribed. ## Dude are you sure about that? Are you a doctor? Maybe you shouldn't advise people on the subject when not knowing all your facts.. ## I have to agree with Jake, if you are not a medical professional, then there is no way to say for certain what is safe for any particular patient. Some people do use Benzodia...

Took a drug test at my doctors for suboxone and it showed negative please help
33 Replies RSS
I had a drug test with my suboxone doctor the other day and he called and kicked me off the program because the suboxone didnot show up on my drug test i have been taking suboxone for 3 years and cannot go without it and i took suboxone the morning of the drug test how is it possible it would not show up? ## Hi Scott, Did you have any other medications, substances, or specific food with the suboxone that could interact with its absorption? Also, do you notice how long it usually takes to kick in after you've taken it? From an outside perspective, I can only imagine that if you took it with a full meal (high in fat or calories) that the pill may not have been digested and assimilated until hours after you took the pill. Fat can significantly slow down your metabolism in the presence ...

Drug testing by Suboxone doctors
20 Replies RSS
I have been on suboxone for the past couple months and it's is working out great. I have not touched opiates since. The doctor also prescribed me 10 klonopin last month because I'm having a lot of panic attacks and anxiety. I took a couple Xanax a week before I went in for my monthly visit because 10 klonopin just wasnt enough for my anxiety a month. I did save 2 klonopin for the last week prior to my visit. I took a urine drug screen. My question is, will my suboxone doctor be able to tell that I took Xanax a week prior. I went to the lab in the office right next to his office to take the urine screen. He prescribed me 10 again but said I can call in 10 days and get more if needed which is great cause now I will have just what i am prescribed in my system from now on. Will he k...

suboxone and pre employment drug screen
89 Replies RSS
I am prescribed suboxone for an opiate addiction maintance program. First, will it show up in a ten panel test. Second, can an employer discriminate if they have already offered me the job. Third, is this violate any privacy laws ## Yes, Suboxone contains the narcotic Buprenorphine, so it will show up on a test. No, they cannot discriminate, that is illegal. And no, it does not violate any privacy laws. You do not have to discuss with them why you are on it. You just need to inform them that you are on it, when you go in to have the test. They have the right to verify that it is being used under a doctor's orders and it will, more than likely, negate that part of the drug screen test. Are there any questions or comments? ## thank you for replying, it has been a week since I did take...

How to get off Suboxone successfully - Step by step
327 Replies RSS
If you are struggling with getting off Suboxone successfully, you may want to take the time to read this. I have read a ton of hype about Suboxone being impossible to get off. How the withdrawal symptoms carry on for days, even months. Below, I would like to encourage you and let you know that it can be done. I AM LIVING PROOF YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH THIS FEAT!!! I have been free of Suboxone and all other drugs and alcohol for 3 months and I have never felt better in my life!!! THE WAY THAT SUCCESS HAPPENED FOR ME AND CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU: For months I read Suboxone blog sites in the effort to gather some element of hope that would encourage me to make the “jump” to get off my final 1/8 tab (1mg) of Suboxone. At the point I started reading these blog sites, I had come down from 2.5...

Feeling 'sick' from Suboxone
50 Replies RSS
I have been on Subox for about 4 months now...I started at a very low dose. Only 6 MG a day for the first 2 days (and then after getting very sick on that amount) lowered my dose to only 2 mg total a day. The trouble is I feel really sick...horrible headaches, zero energy, body aches. It feels literally like I am being poisened slowly by the Subox. So why not stop taking it you will ask. I have tried to taper down and the WDs are as bad as coming off Oxy to me. I am now stuck between the option every day to feel like a '10' bad and have serious WDs and not take anything...or take a little Subox , not have the sweats as bad, but still feel like a '8' bad. There seems to be no good option anymore for me. Maybe my brain is truly damaged and will never feel the same without ...

False Positive for Benzodiazepines
199 Replies RSS
I have been testing positive for benzos and i cant figure out why. I have been taking suboxone & Ondansetron & promethazine. Thats it. If i fail another drug test, then my doctor is gonna kick me out. If anybody knows of any common substances, prescription or over the counter medications please inform me. Thanks ## I checked the prescription medications that you listed, but none of them are known to cause false positives for Benzodiazepines. However, it can be caused by Benadryl or anything that contains its active ingredient Diphenhydramine, such as Tylenol PM, Advil PM or the store brand/generic equivalents. There are also many Chinese herbal remedies on the market, such as those for weight loss and relaxation/sleep that have been found to contain them as undeclared drug ingre...

can you take suboxone and codeine
47 Replies RSS
hi, i am taking suboxone i would like to know if i take codeine with it would i feel the opiate? Also is it possible to go through withdrawals from codeine if on suboxone? ## more info please! 1) what dose are you on, how long have you been taking suboxone? 2) How much codeine we talking about? Are you meaning a dose to make you feel high? Or do you have a headache?! 3) what is your usage history? If you have been on Suboxone over a few days then dont take codeine as it will have no effect. It wont hurt you but wont do anything either as the suboxone will boot it out your receptors. You say 'would I feel it' which suggests to me you are looking to get high off the codeine. So the answer is 'No' unless you are on a very low dose and take a high codeine dose. I honestly wo...

suboxone and chronic pain
13 Replies RSS
Im in an addiction treatment program and I'm taking two 8/2 mg strips a day. I've been a slave to opiates for approximately 25 years. I've reached the point of being fed up with being dependent on pain pills to function. my addiction dr suggested trying to find a pain management dr who would treat my chronic pain with suboxone. It does alleviate my pain ...or might I say ..makes me functional and the pain tolerable. is this an actual option? I've done research on this and have gotten mixed reviews on the subject. I trust this site and follow it daily so I'm asking for some information and suggestions. I function better on suboxone than on oxycodone dilaudid or morphine (I've been prescribed them all plus some others) give me some feedback. What should I do or is ...

I got off of it in Dec. 2008. I decreased very slowly from 80mgs to one mg.

I see a psyciatrist and thereapist. I am on klonopin, xanax, and effexor. I was told that I can not go to a suboxone doctor because I am on these medications. So ...

Need a doctor who prescribes suboxone in Indiana - i am on medicaid. ## While I'm not aware of which doctors accept medicaid, I can provide you with links to help you locate specific pain management doctors within your local area.

Suboxone Drug Test oral swab

Hi everyone. Hopefully someone out there has some advice for me. I have been on subs since October 17th of '12 and I take it everyday HOW PRESCRIBED which is 1 and 1/2, total 12 mugs a day of the 8mg strips. I don't take at a set time or anything like that and sometimes don't take at all or at least the whole prescribed amount. Well long story short here; I take drug tests every month and sometimes twice a month for my sub doctor and have never had a problem with my results. I have also taken pre-employment screens and they are fine as well. All of these tests are urine. Well back in November I had an appt with a caseworker at JFS to review my sobriety and caseplan progress. I took a half strip before I went in and, if I remember correctly, that was all I had taken that day....

How Long Does One Suboxone Strip Stay In Your Urine
328 Replies RSS
took 1 8mg suboxone strip how long does it stay in urine. ## A Suboxone is not an opiate it's an opiate blocker; therefore I wouldn't judge how long a suboxone stays in your system based on how long opiates stay in your system because it's not an opiate. From what I've heard and read and all the websites I checked it seems the average is as little as 4 but as many as 7 days that it stays in your urine but only 3 days in your saliva. 7 days is a lot, it seemed like the average was 5-6 so I would go with that. Although to be honest the best would be not to do it at all especially if you have to worry about it not being in your urine, which kind of implies that you have something going on where you can't have it in your urine. So stay away from it all until you are able...

Generic Suboxone which is better cvs or walgreens

who has been suboxone CVS or walgreens.I know thwy are generic but which is better of the two ## You're really asking a subjective question, because a generic that works well for one person may not work that well for you and vice-versa. What you really need to discover is which one works best for you. Learn more Suboxone details here. Have you had problems with any that you've tried? ## Walgreens or CVS has the exact same thing when it comes to suboxen, not sure what dose you are on but an 8mg suboxen strip will have 6mg of buprenorphine and 2mg of naloxone. ## The difference between the two.... Walgreens has the orange generics and cvs has the white generics. I had both and imo, they're exactly the same. But if I had to choose, I would go with walgreens only bc in my head I...

How Long Does It Take For 4mg Of Suboxone To Be Out Your System
70 Replies RSS
How Long does it take for 4mg of suboxone to be completely out of your system? ## Hi Steve, Based on my research, if you took just one, then it should be out of your system within about 48 to 72 hours. If you have been taking it regularly, it could take longer. My suggestion is to drink lots of fluids and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables to help flush it out of your system faster. Are you hoping to get Suboxone out of your system by any specific time? ## i took 2 mg sub film monday and 2 mg film on tuesday. how likely will it be out of my system by thursday? thanks. ## you guys are fabulous! thanks muchly for the help! ## Took about 4mg strip on monday.

they told me at the doctor today that i tested positive last month for suboxone and I have never taken it
23 Replies RSS
I did a regular urine screen at my pain doctor's last month and this month my new nurse practitioner said it tested positive for Suboxone ! I did not even know what it was ! I did just start taking Buspar, could that have caused a false positive ? I have been going to that practice for 7 years, I have never had a bad urine screen before ! Now she says if it shows up again, they will dismiss me. HELP !! ## I've seen this question a lot, and someone I know and trust very well had this happen once in several years of testing. I've researched it some and found that in some cases people who are not actually taking their Suboxone will crush some up to put in their urine so they get a positive result, and that sometimes in such cases, the probe itself can contaminate the next sampl...
