Suboxone Overview

Buprenorphine is an opioid, a semi-synthetic derivative of thebaine. It is a 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...

Hi, does medicaid cover suboxone treatment. I heard the straight medicaid does, but molina, does not. I need this treatment. Im in Oakland cty. Any drs you know that can help me? Thx ## Hi Jazz, Don,t know if it,s covered or not. Have you tried going to the suboxone site and entering your area code to find sub drs? You could do that and call some of them and just ask and maybe you,ll get some ideas. Good luck Oh ya, Some Phyciatrists can prescribe subs too. ## I did, but only straight medicaid covers any dr. I go to a dr in 2 days. It will b a miracle if he can jump thru hoops. Also, im checking out PACE. They may cover 4 mths treatment. Ill check in and pass the news if true.

Day 15 of Suboxone withdrawal. What the heck?
2 Replies RSS
I'm on day 15 of no Suboxone. I took a low dose of 1/2 mg a day, if needed, for 18 mos. I never took more than that at any time. I jumped & didn't taper b/c I felt w/d at 1/4 mg anyway. It's not getting any better & I'm beginning to wonder if things will ever swing upward. My RLS is pathetic. It's even in my arms & I feel like flailing my hands, as if it'll escape out my fingers. I can't stand for it to be quiet & I'm so nervous every single second of the day. I can't relax, let alone sleep. However, I'm fortunate to have access to Neurontin & my dentist husband gave me an Rx for Tramadol today. (Hard to imagine this would actually be worse if I didn't have these.) I'm eating well, keeping myself hydrated, using Benadry...

can u take suboxone and codine
17 Replies RSS
hi iam taking suboxone i would like to know if i take codine with it would i feel the codine also is it possible to go through withdrawls from codine if on suboxone ## more info please! 1) what dose are you on, how long have you been taking suboxone? 2) How much codeine we talking about? Are you meaning a dose to make you feel high? Or do you have a headache?! 3) what is your usage history? If you have been on Suboxone over a few days then dont take codeine as it will have no effect. It wont hurt you but wont do anything either as the suboxone will boot it out your receptors. You say 'would I feel it' which suggests to me you are looking to get high off the codeine. So the answer is 'No' unless you are on a very low dose and take a high codeine dose. I honestly wouldn...

Woke up this am feeling great, been off suboxone for almost 2 days. Slept great too! Been reading my bible and praying. Going to look to get some B12 . ## Awesome, DeeDee! I'm very glad that you're doing so well. It's only been 2 days, so you may still experience some withdrawal symptoms, so please be on the watch for them. According to the NIH, they may include nausea, drowsiness, fever/chills and diarrhea. What dosage were you taking and how long were you on it?

30 Replies RSS
Hi, I was put on the 8 mg. strips at 3 per day in Oct. 2012..I used 3 per day for a couple of month's.. I quickly tapered down to 1&1/2 of the strip's per day..I got so tired of being on it so I began to stock pile it to withdraw on it at home.. I got down to 1-2 mg.s per day for about the past month and began yesterday (Monday) withdrawing..It's now Tuesday (July 9,2013) and still feel like I did yesterday.. No vomiting nor the big "D" but sweating, lethargic, chilling, feel achy, etc.. How long will it take for the withdrawal's to completely go away..PLEASE answer ASAP & THANKS....Oh, don't scare me about it because I'm all ready an emotional wreck.. ## Hi, Shay! A day or two really isn't enough for your body to process it out and get back t...

How Long Do I Have To Wait Take Suboxone after taking 10mg oxycodone
29 Replies RSS
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...
