My doctor just put me on subutex along with percocet. I've been on percocet for yrs for severe and chronic migraines. He told me to take the subutex and if it doesn't work to take a perc. I take 15mg percs at a time. I've read some stuff online that worries me. Some people say if you take percs with subutex you'll go into withdrawals. I went through severe withdrawals with fioricet months ago and I don't want to go through that hell again. I took my first subutex about an hour ago and I still have a migraine so I want to take a perc now. Can I do that or will I get sick?

I really need to get on a suboxone program I have no medical insurance and I am in Alaska not many resources. I know there is some patient Assistance for the medication but does anyone know of any help to pay for the doctor appointments?

Suboxone & Perc together sounds more like self medicating than it does an actual prescribed treatment. Unless you did not inform the doctor you were already using one. Suboxone is a pain killer alone & not quite effective only if the dosage is not high enough to help withdrawal. However, when taken w/ Percocet, not only are you defeating the purpose you are adding to the problem.

I have been on suboxine for four years I just had an MRI and found out I fractured my back I've been in a tremendous amount of pain , my doctor gave me vicoden for pain I said I didn't want to take them because of withdrawells , she told me to take half my dose of subs for two days then stop subs I'm in serious withdrawals now course vicoden ain't touching withdrawels or back pain so I bought a subutex knowing there is no narcain so therefore I won't withdraw ..

Jane from message 133...What is your problem! I can not believe that you would risk the baby's health just because you "kept your faith in god". I, myself am an addict and i could never live with myself if i did something like that! The fact that nothing too major happened to your child does NOT make this OK. I would maybe try to rethink having anymore children until you figure out how to be a decent parent/human being! You should really be ashamed of yourself! You make me sick and you need some serious help!

I have been taking hydros and oxys for about 4 years or so now -the last year I take on average 50mg/day. I have not been able to be without them. The last 3 days I have tried subutex and taken about 4-6mg daily and been fine. I'm wanting to take a hydro, not sure if it is safe, if/when it will even do anything

Most likely u won't feel them or get euphoria from them. But They mite help your pain a little bit . But if u really want to feel the euphoria and get real pain releif u should wait at least 48 hours after sub. Sub binds so strongly to your receptors that it takes about 48 hours befor u can really " feel" any other opiates. From experience, I've taken at least 5 80's and a few roxi on top the next day after taking sub and basically felt nothing , and wasted the pills. And it doesn't matter if u insufflate them or swallow them, u most like are not gonna feel them, so hold off one more day so u can actually enjoy your pain pills. Either way, u won't get sick or anything like that, but u won't feel high or get serious pain releif.

Subutex is not a blocker naloxon is the blocker in suboxone subutex will intensify any other opiate pain killer.

He is just another pill head that has no idea what he is talking about you got sick because your body could't handle the dose very small amounts of subutex can make you feel like your in withdraw your body will adjust and you will do fine. Avoid any advice from people using words like pain killas.

Ive been on subutex for 2yrs and have taken percocet and zero withdraw. You won't feel high but it helps with the pain. As for suboxone if u do opiates before u take it you will go in withdraw but a friend of mine was on suboxone and did H the same day and was fine she just had to take a lot more H to feel "high" because the naloxone as subutex is just bupernorphine. That being said from experience you can take subutex with percocet.

Yes. As long as its subutex and not suboxone. Subutex doesn't have naloxone in it, which is what makes suboxone unsafe to take shortly after an opiate.

Yes it is safe to take opiate pain medication on top of suboxone as far as it putting you into withdrawals is concerned. I know doctors usually recommend that you don't just because they both have a depressant effect on your system, and if you take too much it can cause your respiratory system to shut down. I've never seen someone that has a high enough tolerance built up to opiates that they are taking 8 mgs of suboxone a day have any problem with that though if they are taking the prescribed amount of a painkiller. As far as causing withdrawals, you can take opiate pain killers after taking suboxone just not the other way around, so if you do take something else don't take suboxone the next day like you usually do, you'll need to wait at LEAST 24 hours before starting up the suboxone again. The bigger issue is that suboxone (buprenorphine) blocks the effects of opiates, and so taking them shortly after taking suboxone is worthless. You would have to take so much to overpower the suboxone and actually feel the effects of the painkillers that you would be in danger of overdosing... You really would need to wait at least 24 hours after taking suboxone for it to even be worth trying to take a different painkiller, and even then suboxone has a long half life too, and when you've been taking it for awhile it will still have some counteracting effect on the opiates for at least 3 days. You should be able to get some relief from the painkillers after waiting 24 - 36 hours though. I hope this helps, please be careful. The best thing to do is always talk to your doctor. There are other options for painkillers that are not opiate based like tramadol that they could prescribe you as well. Best of luck, I hope you get feeling better soon.

The reason why tramadol works on Subutex is cause tramadol has a higher Binding effect.
