My best friend is pregnant and snorts her prescibtion so i was just wondering what the effects on the fetus were taking subutex as directed, dissolving it under your tongue vs snorting it.

I had my second child this past may, and Ive been on 12 to 16mg subutex per day for the last 6 years. both of my children are fine, I even breastfed them on the meds. its NOT recommended to stop taking subutex when pregnant because of the stress it would put on both mother and baby, as well as the risk of relapse on harder drugs. they need to tell their doctors they're on it, because if they don't and it shows up on the babys first urine screen [ for drugs ] they will get CPS involved.

I don't know much on this except that the bioavailability is higher while snorting. When you take it under tongue I believe you get about half the actual dose compared to maybe about 70%the other way.

I would like to know if snorting makes it harmful in anyway to the fetus as well. Snorting or orally, does it make a difference other than the fact that it reaches your bloodstream faster and you get a slightly higher percentage of it.

I am very disappointed. Primarily in regard with the majority of misinformation that so many have posted in response to those out there that have important questions, concerns, and need guidance. Specifically in relation to both use of buprenorphine ie SUBOXONE, SUBUTEX, Bupronex as well as use of these prescription medications during pregnancy. If you have questions feel free to ask Tido. I have over 19 yrs experience with opioid dependency and the first thing you should know is that it is circumstantial to each and every person. I'm ashamed of all the Black and white replies as though there is no grey. Therefore, if you have a question see a medical Doctor. Tido is here if you want opinions from experience or need guidance on how to approach your concerns. Note this is not medical advice nor should it be interpreted as such.
