I took an 8 mlg subutex about 24 hours ago. Is it safe to take roxicodone or other pain meds?

No, they need to be separated by about 72 hours, in order for the other pain medications to be effective.

The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Subutex has no opiate blocker in them so you should be fine... suboxone on the other hand has an opiate blocker therefore depending on your body's tolerance and whatever you may or may be able to take other opioids... But I know from experience Subutex is different from suboxone, another opiate medication should work.

I took a 1/4 dose of Bunavail this morning. How long will it remain in my system? Also, can I take a valium with it or are they contraindicated?

I am on Bunavil. Yes you can take a Valium with it. I take colodopins and Xanax with mine. Just be careful and do t take large doses for combining the two in large amounts can cause upper respiratory distress.

Why are you posting replies when you are obviously completely naive about the real effects of subs??

My reply was for Verwon as I see him giving really generalized uneducated replies on many suboxone posts ... this is some pretty bad forum software as well ... when I hit reply in his box it should connect to his reply ... just sayin ... I did find some real advice on other posts of this forum however .. love to all

Wow, a lot a misinformed ideas floating about. Subutex vs Suboxone. Buprenophine, the primary blocker of opiates, and add Naloxone, and withdrawals most likely to intensify. The main proponent is Buprenophine, but more important is the Half-Life of both Buprenophine and Naloxone. Buprenophine has a Half-Life average of around 35-45 hours. Naloxones Half-Life is shorter at around 6-12 hours. Although Naloxones Half-Life is relatively short, taking any opiates sooner then 72 hours is most likely to be wasteful, and could be painful. Naloxone is supposed to be a way to stop abuse via injection, but it does more then that. Naloxone is supposed to have a very low rate of absorption, but personally, I' am not so sure. I take Subutex, but on a few occasions had to take Suboxone, and I thought my head was going to pop. Suboxone has a 4/1 ratio whereas Subutex is straight Buprenophine. Precipitated withdrawals would be horrifying if you were to take an opiate within hours of taking Suboxone, but you'd still get negative results taking an opiate after the Naloxone wears off due to the long Half-Life of Buprenophine. Personally, I'd put at minimum a 72 hour, or greater space between mixing Subutex with any full opiate. It's very important to consider the Half-Life of any medication. Personally, I think the drug companies market Suboxone, and the FDA goes for the ride on a gravy train of profits. If 1mg of Naloxone can cause such a massive headache, what else is it doing ? Subutex gets the job done, and personally, I believe it to be much safer for daily consumption. Just remember, Half-Life is a major factor with any medications.

Never tell a doctor that you are getting meds from someone else because it is completely illegal to take someone else's prescription that is why the doctor hung up on you. I have been on Subutex for four years for chronic pain and it works great for me. I am prescribe 16 mg a day and I usually take between 4 and 8 mg a day sometimes more depending on my pain level. My doctor is not a pill mill and treat me very well he writes my prescriptions for six months at a time. If you have any questions about Subutex I would be more than happy to help you

I did not know what to do because they would have taken a drug panel and then found this in my system, so that is why I told her the truth. So what would you have done?

Can you take Ativan for subutex withdrawal for anxiety? I'm in my 96hr and starting to have anxiety.

Can I take tylenol-3 to help with withdrawals? Will it help?

Ativan will help its a benzo. If you were on Subutex for a long time the withdrawl will last you at least a month.
