Suboxone Overview

Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic, mixed agonist–antagonist opioid receptor modulator that is used to treat opioid addiction in higher dosages, to control moderate acute pain in non-opioid-tolerant individuals in lower dosages and to control moderate chronic pain in even smaller doses.[3] It is available in a variety of formulations: Subutex, Suboxone, Zubsolv (buprenorphine HCl and/or naloxone HCl; typically used for opioid addiction), Temgesic (sublingual tablets for moderate to sever...

How to get off Suboxone
Im Marina Im 24 years old and a mother of 2 beautiul little boys. From the years 2006-2007 i was heavily addicted to Oxy 80 and eventually started doing herion. I got help in sep.2007 at a methadone clinic, it worked for as long as i was on the methadone i had NO relapse's. In June 2009 i was completly off of the methadone that first day that i was on 0Mgs I went through extreme withdrawls i went through things that i would never wish upon my worst enemy! i stayed that way for a day and a half and decided to go to a suboxone doctor. He put me on 32 mgs a day which i thought was pretty high of a dose but he explained to me that methadone withdrawls was worst then any other withdrawls. so i trusted him.

Suboxone withdrawal support and advice
Hello all! I am now on day #11 of no suboxone after 3 years of being on it for Tramadol dependancy after numerous shoulder surgeries from an old football injury. I was able to ween down to 1-1.5 mgs a day before stopping. I was so sick of the Dr's appts, fees, trips to the pharmacy, etc. although I never felt like I was "using" while on subs, I never felt like I was sober either. I've been trying to stop for almost 6 months now but I kept going back to the Dr after only being able to go a few days here and a few days there before giving up due to bad withdrawal. This month, I blew off my appt because I knew that that would be the only way I could stick to my guns. It was "ripping off the bandaid" so to speak. Because I canceled the appt, even if I were to try to ...

You'd inevitably have to ask the receptionist though if the doctor accepts medicaid or any other type of insurance that you might have.

suboxone drs in indiana who accept medicaid
My daughter has been on suboxone for 4 years her Dr got arrested need her to find a dr ## Have her sign up at NAABT.ORG, it's a dr match site for this. Yeah, Dr Ley and DORN associates were good, but the DEA shouldn't have dismantled their operation w/o providing a list of doctors. Now the DEA has our records, so many can't find anyone to even take them. He and the DEA are to blame for this. Not us, who go to counseling, take our drug panels, work, doing everything right and then BAM! Nothing for us. ## yep, same here! I was a patient at Leys clinic for a little over a year & really, I'm not surprised they shut him down. But before that I was a patient at Wagner Medical Center for 7 yrs then they were shut down. And I was hooked up with them thru Fairbanks! I have be...

Is she trying to quit?
My son's girl friend is a recovering drug addict. She was doing really well until her lung collapsed, landing her in the hospital for three days. The doctors had her on STRONG pain meds by mouth and by IV. She was scared to death that when she got out she would have withdraws. The doctor put her on suboxone strips. She moved in with me so I could monitor her intake of meds. She told me to give her one SUBOXONE in the morning and one at night. She has been nodding out at the computer, on the phone, eating, talking, standing, and now she is demanding two strips in the morning. I told her if she took both strips in the morning she would have none in the evening, she didn't care. I took her to see a shrink and she came out of the office very mad saying that she never wanted to go ba...

Suboxone help!!!
I've been prescribed 2, 8 mg strips of suboxone a day by my doctor.. The problem is, I'm clean and have been for weeks. My question is am I going to be okay taking such a high dose of bupe??? Should I be concerned or what do I do? ## You seem to have zero tolerance.. I'll assume you are having cravings to use your doc. So can help with this but go very very slowly. 2mgs at a time. Wait a couple of hours an see how you feel. 16mgs with No tolerance and you will be at least high, at worst sick. Go slow..... Max
