Suboxone Overview

How long can I stay on suboxone?
Dr. Verwon, how are you? I have been on suboxone for almost 8 years now. I was addicted to Oxy for almost 10 years. I went on pain management because I have a lot of medical problems that caused me severe pain. I still suffer from pain. The suboxone helps take the edge off the pain, sometimes. But, I'm also afraid if I get off the suboxone I'll be back to using pain pills. Can I stay on continue to stay on suboxone as people do with methadone maintenance? My Dr. has not said anything about tapering or taking me off. He knows my situation. What do you think? Thank You! ## Hello Cats! How are you doing? I am fabulous, just keeping busy, thanks for asking. Yes, it can actually be used for pain, too. There are many people that take it for pain, rather than addiction treatment, or fo...

Addiction to opiate pain pills.
What meds are commonly used in outpatient rehab to stop using opiate pain pills. ## The one that is most commonly used is suboxone. It is a wonderful medication that allows you to go off opiates without having to feel the horrendous opiate withdrawals. You must be off opiates at least 24 hours to take it. Having opiates in your system while taking suboxone can make you very sick, I know this from experience. Hope this helps and good luck!

Suboxone Dr. Huntsville, Al Needed Asap
I need a Suboxone Dr. in the Huntsville/Madison, AL area asap. I am already on suboxone, but it looks like my doctor may be leaving the area and I really don't want to go to a random Dr. just to find out he's awful. I've already done that once with a doctor scamming me and my insurance and I really don't want to do it again. If anyone knows of a good doctor in the area, preferably one with availabilities (but I will put myself on as many waiting lists as needed, so go ahead with any good ones that are full that you may know of), I would really appreciate the help! Thanks! ## Hello, Carrie! How are you? Actually, there is a search engine on the website that you can use to check for doctors in your area by zip code. You can find it at Suboxone.com click here. This is a nar...

I Take Suboxone For Pain Due To Having Six Surgeries Use Get A 28 Day Prescription But Ran Into Problem With Insurance Because Of Prior Authori
I was a pioneer to suboxone when no one knew really what is was.I had several surgeries and a TBI and suffer from epilepsy,Every year I must get a new prior authorization in Jan.I am on a 28 day supply.Well i told my doctor prior authorzation is coming up I even called twice and spoke to him ## @Williiam, I'm not sure exactly what your insurance company's policies are regarding this "prior authorization", but it sounds to me like you may be better off under a different plan/company if they're not wanting to work with you in getting your prescription. It's cruel that we have to rely on such people to get our meds who have no interest what-so-ever toward our well-being. In the end it's all about the money to them. Being that it's May now, were you just not ...

Can you be on suboxone and take soma for severe muscle spasms and pain? ## Yes. ## I would not suggest doing so without your doctor's approval, but yes, narcotics and muscle relaxants are often prescribed together, to help control pain that one doesn't touch. Suboxone contains the active ingredient Buprenorphine, it is used to help people with drug addiction and to treat some cases od severe pain. Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol, it is a muscle relaxant. Taking the two, together, my aggravate the side effects, which can include: nausea, drowsiness, constipation and dizziness. You can read more about them here: Did you have any other questions? ## Yes, Im rxed both Flexeril, soma, and 16mg Suboxone EDay and Im told by my pharmacist and doc. to use either the flex...

Side effects of suboxone
I have been on suboxone now for just under a month. I think it is an amazing drug, i have had no cravings or interest in returning to opiates, my drug of choice was oxy. I get up every day feeling happy, and am able to take on what ever the day brings me. I am also on lexapro for depression at this time. There is one problem after i take my dose, which is 8 mg. twice a day, I am extremely tired sometimes to the point where if i sit down I will nod off, so I keep moving and can usually fight through it. I am wondering do other people feel this way or does it get better the longer you are on it? Two other things that are sometimes very bothersome are dizzyness and extreme dry mouth. I just wanted to find out other peoples experiences. Thanx ## Hey yea I get the same nod as you, it starts ...
