How long after taking a Suboxone can you take an opiate?
184 Replies RSS
I have been on 8 mg/2mg Suboxone strips for 1 year. I am having a tooth (back molar) extraction in the morning. I used my Suboxone strip this morning & the tooth extraction is at 9:30 am tomorrow. If I don't use another Suboxone strip before the extraction, would I be able to take Hydrocodone after my surgery? I don't want to get sick, but I am terrified of going through this surgery with no pain meds. Please help. ## should be 48 hrs to alow to leave your system ## So if I took a 10 mg Hydrocodone after not taking a Suboxone for 24-28 hours, will it throw me into withdrawals? That would do me in after surgery to end up in wd's. ## Sorry to say but 8 mg of Suboxone is way stronger then any hydrocodone. It would take a year for you to even feel the effects. Tolerance take...

Withdrawal from opiates
11 Replies RSS
Why do you think docs prescribe Suboxone or Methadone for opiate withdrawal, make patients stay on it until they are completely addicted to it for years, then have to treat them to come off it? Why don't they treat a 5 day opiate withdrawal with a benzo to sleep, clonidine, gabapentin, trazodone for a week or two instead. It would sure help society not be addicted to Suboxone. Worst drug ever. ## Most people, even if they are addicted, can't just take a ton of medications to try and sleep through their withdrawals and be out of work for that length of time. Treatment with Suboxone or Methadone enables them to still work and be productive, while undergoing addiction treatment and, unlike Methadone, Suboxone usually enables most people to eventually become completely drug free, al...

Suboxone and Clonazepam
2 Replies RSS
I'm currently on 32 mg daily of suboxone. I also have been prescribed Clonazepam 1mg. Is it ok/safe to take 1 of the 1 mg Clonazepam with 32 mg of suboxone? I have received mixed answers so I'm hoping I can get a majority of responses that are similar. My main concern is that I will have depressed respiratory function or CNS depression. Any and all answers are welcomed. ## CNS depression is a possibility, if you are taking both of these medications, according to the FDA. However, the doesn't mean they cannot be taken together, if just means that your doctor should be sure to adjust your doses carefully, and they should be monitoring you regularly to try to avoid any potential problems. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I'll answer your question first and then yo...

Suboxone and urine test
26 Replies RSS
I know Suboxone does not show up in a standard urine test. But the job I am applying for may do an extended test. I have a prescription from my Doc I am on 16mg a day and it is working great. But I was wondering if I stopped taking it how long til my urine is clean, I appreciate your comments. ## how long does suboxone stay in your urine ## just to inform you this does show up in a standard drug test. also it depends on how long you have been on the drug and how many mg to know about how long it will take to get it out of your system. ## Actually, suboxone will not show up in any drug test unless it is specifically looked for. I was tested weekly for a long time, and had the full 12 panel extended test done monthly, and nothing showed up. I asked my dr and his reply was that unless subo...

Suboxone: Chronic pain / taper?
Post a Reply
I was on 80mg of oxycontin 3 times a day and it was no longer helping after taking it for many, many, many years. I switched to Suboxone for my Chronic Pain Mgt. Was on 6mg films for the 1st year and always had extra, as I took them at night. I was shocked how well they worked along with Flexeril for my back, leg and feet pain. Then I was cut to 3mg film once a day. I usually take the 6mg film every other day, and still forget at times, so I may only use 11 instead of 14 in 28 days. I recently tried to cut to the equivalent of 1/3 a day, but the insomnia and anxiety were off the charts after only a few days. At my last appointment it was Student Teaching Day. I my Doctor! He explained how I am there for pain management which is why I haven't been completely we end off the medication.

can i take suboxone and morphine sulfate together
4 Replies RSS
I take suboxone 12/3 mg once a day. Can I take one 100 mg morphine sulphate with it once a day? ## Hi Rob, According to, suboxone shouldn't be taken with any opioids (i.e. morphine), since it can block its effects and potentially send you into immediate withdrawals - accompanied by a number of undesirable side effects such as increased anxiety, insomnia, nausea, difficulty breathing, sweating, cramps, etc. Having read that, it sounds to me like the wisest thing to do would probably be to contact your doctor about alternative ways to manage your pain in the event that suboxone 'or' morphine doesn't get the job done on their own. Some feedback I've read in other threads here even recommend trying methadone over suboxone; stating that it works better for their p...

Feeling 'sick' from Suboxone
48 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 ...

Was badly addicted to hydrocodone/oxycodone/percocet for 7 years. Am now free thanks to buprenorphine(Suboxone).
59 Replies RSS
Not real sure why exactly it is that I feel it necessary to post here in this forum. Maybe I'm hoping that someone looking for help will read this and make the same decision myself and my husband did. 7 years ago I was introduced to the joys and wonderous feelings of pain pills. Always working in the restuarant industry as a server/ bartender, the high I got from taking tabs or percs or whatever I could get my hands on led me to believe that I was a better server, better at my job, made more money, could talk to people more openly and be a happier person all around. At first, like the beginning 3 years I would take 1 to 3 lortab 10 mg in one day and be hopping around all over the place till the wee hours of the morning, talking everyone's head off and energized to the max. As th...

How Long Before I Take Second Suboxone
57 Replies RSS
Am trying to kick heroin. Took half of an 8mg suboxone after experiencing 18 hrs of withdrawals. That did the trick. It has now been 13 hrs since I took the fist dose. Am now wondering how long do I wait before I take a second dose of suboxone? Will I need to wait until I go through withdrawals again or what? A speedy reply will be greatly appreciated. ## you can take it right now! I'm surprised that 1/2 a pill stopped withdrawal from herion, you're lucky. My doctor & other people I've talked to were told to take enough to make the withdrawal symtoms stop, when you feel them start up again, take another suboxoxne. I've been on it about 2 years and it's been a miracle. I was on the lortab merry go round, bad. Good luck! It takes 2 8mg tabs a day to stop cravings p...

How Long Does One Suboxone Strip Stay In Your Urine
312 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...

How Long Does It Take For 4mg Of Suboxone To Be Out Your System
67 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.

suboxone interactions and essential oils
Post a Reply
Is there any interaction with essential oils and suboxone?? Since I have been using the oils along with probiotics, it seems as if the half life of the suboxone does not last as long, and I thing that may be due to the detoxing effects of both probiotics and essential oils. I know you may not know since these two detoxers are not approved by BIG FARMA, which I believe is tainted anyway, but thank you for your time and reading my??

will suboxone show up in a dot drug test
80 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...

Pharmacist refusing to fill my script of suboxone. What do I do???
234 Replies RSS
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???? ## If you run out of suboxone too soon- you might need to increase your dose? That way you won't have to worry about being out of it too soon.

False Positive Benzodiazepines
173 Replies RSS
I have been taking suboxone for almost a year and had to move to a new doc. They drug tested me and said I tested positive for benzos. The funny thing is I have not taken ANY benzos. I have to go take another test today at 5 and I am scared s**tless cuz they said if benzos are still in my system then they can not see me. Knowing that I haven't taken any benzos makes me wonder if I might still test positive for it again. I did take some cough syrup and some percs but that is it. What could cause this? ## Well, it could be something in the cough syrup, some of them, such as NyQuil and a few others contain ingredients that will cause a false positive for other substances. Do you remember what kind of cough syrup you took or what was in it? I will gladly look it up for you to check. ## ...
