Suboxone Overview

Buprenorphine/naloxone (trade name Suboxone) is a combination drug formulation of buprenorphine, a μ-opioid receptor (MOR) weak partial agonist and κ-opioid receptor antagonist, and naloxone, a MOR silent antagonist, in a 4:1 ratio.[1][2] It is used in the treatment of opioid dependence.[1][2] The purpose of naloxone is to deter intravenous abuse; parenteral administration rapidly induces opioid withdrawal symptoms, while regular, intended use does not (as naloxone is minimally bioa...

Swallowing Suboxone
2 Replies RSS
I took 4 mg (half of 8) Suboxone last night before going to bed and I swallowed it while I was sleeping by mistake. I typically don't swallow it and I don't take more than what I'm supposed to take. I woke up after a few hours extremely nauseous feeling like I'm going to throw up. I know it's because I swallowed it. I did eat a decent amount before going to bed. How can I get this nauseous feeling to go away? Am I going to have to make myself throw up? ## No it should pass quite quickly. I sometimes take mine in the morning and do the same thing, I can tell because when I burp I can taste them again. But no harm will come to you. Subs 1/2 life probably means that you will still have enough in your system, if you get physical withdrawals take a small amount however I ...

How to get off Suboxone successfully - Step by step
344 Replies RSS
If you are struggling with getting off Suboxone successfully, you may want to take the time to read this. I have read a ton of hype about Suboxone being impossible to get off. How the withdrawal symptoms carry on for days, even months. Below, I would like to encourage you and let you know that it can be done. I AM LIVING PROOF YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH THIS FEAT!!! I have been free of Suboxone and all other drugs and alcohol for 3 months and I have never felt better in my life!!! THE WAY THAT SUCCESS HAPPENED FOR ME AND CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU: For months I read Suboxone blog sites in the effort to gather some element of hope that would encourage me to make the “jump” to get off my final 1/8 tab (1mg) of Suboxone. At the point I started reading these blog sites, I had come down from 2.5...

Unfortunately I had a slip after 3 years of being clean. I took suboxone 8/2 sublingual strips. I recently saw the doc again & I was prescribed the tablets. My first dose will b in morning. Is there any difference in reaction time til meds start to work. Just seeing if anyone out threre with a different opinion. ## Hi, Grizzly! How did it go? Most people find that Subxone works very quickly to stabilize things and prevent further withdrawal symptoms. Learn more Suboxone details here. However, it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ## Well it's been 10 days & all is well. If your not careful this too can be very addictive. As I stated I've been down this road before. I used meds for 3 days 3 tabs a day than literally ...

How to take orange Suboxone pill with 54 375
3 Replies RSS
How do you administer the orange Suboxone pill imprinted with 54 375? Do you swallow it or put it under your tongue? ## Just put under your tongue like a strip but I only put one at a time ## Yes, this is a sublingual tablet that is intended to be dissolved under the tongue, however, there is no harm if it is accidentally swallowed, it will just take a bit longer to be absorbed and start to have an effect. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Actually bruprenorphine has almost no effect if swallowed. That iz wby they warn not to talk while taking sublingually , and why some people think the strips are stronger. Its...

help-procedure ok to take vicodine with suboxone?
92 Replies RSS
Hi. I am having a procedure done and am being prescribed vicodin. I am currently on suboxone. I WILL NOT take the vicodine unless I am in excrutiating pain. Would suboxone help with the pain? And if I do have to take the vicodine how long should I wait to take it after taking suboxone? THANKS! ## Vicodin will not do anything taken with the Suboxone. Suboxone contains an opiate neutralizer to help prevent you from getting high and taking other drugs while under treatment. Vicodin is also nowhere near as strong as the Suboxone, so it will be liking taking TicTacs for your pain in comparison. Suboxone is a narcotic, so it will help with the pain and you should be fine with just that. ## Suboxone does not help relieve any pain what so ever. I am on suboxone, but if you have to take vicodin ...

How long after you stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
1042 Replies RSS
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat cancer but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight that she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward signs of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't ...

Maximum dose of Suboxone/Subutex & chronic pain
416 Replies RSS
What is the maximum dose of suboxone or subutex when you have severe 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 an opiate blocker which will in turn allow your brain to make its own dopamine. ## 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 b...

I saw some round orange pills on my brother's dresser. He is a recovering addict and I'm scared he's using again. The pills are fairly small, round, an orange/peach color, there is an imprint of a D on one side and a 2 on the other. Can someone please let me know what this is. ## could be suboxone a opiopd deprndents med like methadone ## I don't want to assume the worst but I know that he was not prescribed this medication nor was it given to him by a medical professional. ## It's a drug called Dilaudid. Not good news but at least I know. Thanks for your help. ## Yes, Summer, that is what I am finding it to be, as well. 2mgs of Hydromorphone, that active ingredient in Dilaudid, which is a very potent narcotic analgesic. If he is using it and abusing it, some signs y...

how long after taking a suboxone can you use methadone
7 Replies RSS
How long after taking 8mg suboxone can u take methadone ## Hello, Michael! How are you? It usually takes about 3 days, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, 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? ## BE CAREFUL! Precipitated withdrawl will happen if you take it too soon. I don't know your dose of methadone you have tapered off the Half-Life of that poison is @least 72 hrs or more. Depends on alot. How much how long how you metabolized the stuff. I speak from experience. Personally I would give it a wk.Good luck! ## A doctor at a methadone clinic once told me I can go right from Suboxone to methad...

what exactly does suboxone do? is it addicitive?
266 Replies RSS
i have a friend who desperately wants to get off of methadone and pain pills. will suboxone work? is it addicitive too? if someone can please help me that would be great! also is it very expensive, that's what i've heard. ## Well, first off, yes, it can be addictive as well, however, it has distince advantages over narcotic meds, Benzos, and even Methadone. Suboxone works on many of the same receptors, since it is a narcotic agent, however, it does not give the same high effect and euphoria that most addicts enjoyed, which is what made them get addicted in the first place. It also contains an opiate neutralizer, so it neutralizes anything in your system from the other drugs you were using, and of course prevents someone from continuing to use while they are on it. Most people wh...
