Suboxone Overview

Buprenorphine is a semisynthetic opioid derivative of thebaine. It is a mixed partial agonist 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: Cizdol, Subutex, Suboxone, Zubsolv, Bunavail (available as buprenorphine HCl alone or buprenorphine and naloxone HCl (see bupre...

i am taking suboxone but wondering can I also take extenze male enhancer with it
3 Replies RSS
can suboxone be mixed with an male enhancer called Extenze ## If you mix suboxone with extenze I find that it makes you feel like you are having a heart attack! I have a feeling its really bad for your cardio. No jokes there guys! I felt all kinds of horrible things that you cant describe in the chest area. I thought I was gonna die! Dont do it! ## I agree with the other response to this question...I mistakenly tried extenze while taking suboxone, and didnt do any research (mainly because I had never ever had any problems with taking herbal products before) and to say the least it was probably one of the worst experiences in my life! heart felt like it was gonna explode and my whole body turned as red as can be, broke out in hot/cold flashes with the sweats, and shaking...ect.ect....bot...

maximum dose of Suboxone/subutex & chronic pain
279 Replies RSS
what is the maximum dose of suboxone or subutex when you have seere pain? ## what is the maximum daily dose of subutex? I'm taking it to wean off of opiate pain killers but may need to stay on it for chronic pain. My doctor has me taking 2mg up to 6 times a day, but it feels like too much and I feel sick at 6 mg. I can't imagine taking more. Any answers would be helpful... thanks. ## if u have true clinical pain suboxone will not work it is for opiate detox only it is a opiate blocker which will in turn allow ur brain to make its own dopimine ## feelinbettergoinbroke is wrong, suboxone is used for the treatment of chronic pain. Although, I think the reason you are getting sick is because your doctor has you taking 2mg up to 6 times a day. That in itself is causing you to become ...

Help with suboxone!

I regularly take 10-12 mg of suboxone daily well this moth I ran out 3 days early so I took 80mg of opiates each day I took my last does of opiates at noon it's now 7pm is it safe to take suboxone again? I don't want to go in withdrawals but I have always been told suboxone remains in your system for 3-5 days. If so, is there enough suboxone in my system so I won't go into withdrawals? ## Hello, David! How are you? It's difficult to gauge, because how long it stays can vary from person to person. It would really be best to wait until you're in full withdrawal, before starting it, again, unless your doctor directs otherwise. 80mgs of opiates is a high amount, so there could be a pretty high risk of precipitated withdrawals, if you take it too soon. The FDA classifies ...

how long after taking a suboxone can you take an opiate
111 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 use 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.

do you gain weight with suboxone?
160 Replies RSS
Hi I'm just starting to research suboxone. I'm currently going to a methadone clinic every day and it is such a hassle. I have to get up every morning at 4am to be there in time to get to work the line is so long but that's beside my point, My real question is Do you gain weight with Suboxone? This is my third attempt at trying to get off of opiates by taking Methadone but every single time I start taking Methadone I gain 40 to 60 pounds within the first 4 months. Most people do, some don't I just happen to be one of them. I get so discouraged by the weight gain that I stop going to the Methadone clinic and then start using again. Sadly my mom died from using the same drug I used before treatment. I have 3 children and want to get my life together again but I just can...

How Long Do I Have To Wait Take Suboxone after taking 10mg oxycodone

How Long Do I Have To Wait Take Suboxone after taking 10mg oxycodone so i dont go into precipitated withdrawals? ## You have to be in full withdrawal from all other opiates, before you can safely take Suboxone. Learn more Suboxone details here. The precise time that happens can vary from person to person, depending on their own body, how much of the given drug(s) they were taking and other factors. It's a very fine line, because taking it too soon can throw you into withdrawals, but you have to be full in them, before it's safe. Are there any other questions or comments? ## how long does it take oxycodone to be metabolized by the body after taking 10 mgs one time. ## I'm taking suboxone can I take a 15 mg of morphine I took it befor the sub and only asking because I still ne...

how long do i have to wait take suboxone after taking 40mgs of norco
13 Replies RSS
I took 40 mg of norco 5 hours ago I'm not an everyday user so I don't go thru withdraw how long do I have to wait to take a suboxone ## Why would you take suboxone if you don,t have wds? 40mg of Norco is really not all that much. It,s on the high end of a Drs. prescribed dose. Don,t mess with subs unless you have a serious addiction. ## Don't ya just love people that reply but don't answer your question, but instead sit on their high-horse?! Technically one should wait around 3 days- but to any user that is ridiculous! I have waited 24 hours & been ok (though I was kinda terrified!), that was only after using oxycodone for a couple of days for pain. If one has been using any opioids for extended periods I would advise waiting a bit longer if you can. ## I actually wr...

how long after taking a 1/4 suboxone can you take a Percocet?
18 Replies RSS
I took a 1/4 of a suboxone a friend had given me around 6:00 pm today. How long do I have to wait until I can take a Percocet for pain and not get it and have it work? ## 1/4 of a suboxone isn't a very detailed description how many MG's was the strip?(i know this is an old comment but whatever) ## I know this topic is a few weeks old, but I do agree with josh (post #1) in that the answer to the original thread question would largely depend on how many milligrams of Suboxone you're taking. Based on some other cases I've seen, I'd take a shot in the dark and say it may be up to a week before it's out of your body. Although several personal factors such as age, weight, diet, etc, could also influence the excretion rate. I hope this info helps! Please post back if yo...

Can suboxone withdrawal symptoms include fever?
8 Replies RSS
My husband was on suboxone 60 mg the for 3 years. Recently he stopped suboxone cause he is in pain with his hip and needs a replacement. He started taking 120-180mg of morphine for about 3-4 days and then stopped the morphine, waited about 9-10 hours, and went back to suboxone. Now he has been running a fever for two days, very lethargic, and nauesea. Is he going through withdrawal? ## Hello spotty sorry for the pain your husband's in. I too am prescribed suboxone and have hip trouble. Actually have recently had both replaced and I'm on the sub for my weakness for the opiates.. it actually gives me better relief than the oxycodone did. As for the fever I'm not sure - some people have different withdrawal symptoms. I suggest checking with your dr because if there's arthri...
