Suboxone Overview

Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic partial opioid agonist 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 severe pain), Buprenex (solutions for in...

suboxone 8mg/2mg and roxy 30's
I am currently taking 8 to 10 roxy 30's a day. I have suboxones 8mg/2mg to help get clean+ off of these. I know the suboxones are the best pill made to help with the withdraws*but im wondering if for the 1st 3=5 days when im having trouble sleeping and feeling clamy if i should take like half of a roxy 30{which i have done in the past}which helps me to sleep and take away the clamy feeling or any other suggestions that u may have*thanx to anyone answering this for me ## Taking the Oxycodone pills with the Suboxone will do you no good, it contains a substance that neutralizes opiates to prevent their abuse during treatment, that is why it throws you into withdrawals. Suboxone should really not be used without a doctor's supervision, as the dosage and usage is carefully monitored ...

How hard will it be to get a suboxen program that I can work with while workin on the road regularly
I dropped out of my first attempt at a suboxen program ( cause I really would like to do the "program" and not on my own) because they gave very impractical terms for my participation. They expected me to attend 5 AA meetings weekly and show proof at every visit... That being said I work the road and am gone 6-7 months a year and just have no clue and no time in evenings after 12 hour days (schedules dont jell with these centers) to hit these programs.. I would have loved to use the NA.org website but this doctor was very odd in his requirements.. So that being said... is there any alternatives? And do most doctors refuse a second chance for folks who reoffend and do not follow docs programs criteria after one visit? Is there a national data base that will tell other docs that I...

Quitting Suboxone after 4 Years
I was taking suboxone for the past 3-4 years after being addicted to lortabs for nearly 7 years. I was only taking on average 2 1/2 - 3 a day, some days up to 8 some days down to 1 depending on the supply in town. It was hell waking up everyday having to take pills to be normal. I discovered suboxone from a friend and got really sick taking my first one (it was only a 1/3 of one). I discovered that if I cut it into strips of about 1/8" long that was plenty enough to function. One sub would last about a week. I was way cheaper to buy this than Iortabs and I functioned 10x better. I recently decided I would taper down even less and attempt to quit all together. I'm on day 4 with no subs and have excruciating pains in my legs and diarrhea. My friend has given me ultram to halfway h...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat CA 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 tht she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward s/s of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't 14 days...

PTSD severe anxiety on Suboxone/ Xanax
I've had PTSD for 2 years and severe anxiety most of my life. It seems to be getting worse. I've been on Suboxone for 11 months and will be out of the program within 8 months. I'm in Ky. Lately, probably for the last year, the anxiety has turned into something else I can't even begin to manage. I'm having paranoid thoughts that people are going to kill me. The only place I feel safe is at home when the house is full of people. I can't go to the store anymore because I have this strong feeling that any body there could "get" me. I'm crying right now typing this because I feel so helpless. I KNOW its stupid and no one is really going to get me, but the feeling is so strong when it comes that I just freak out and think I'm having a heart attack or a ...

suboxone doctors
looking for help for son he done have a job,he needs help for drug addition ## If anyone needs a Suboxone doctor in Atlanta let me know. Mine is great, and I think he has a few openings. ## i am needing to find a suboxone doc in okc area that takes insurance. Any suggestions? ## I DO!! ## I need to find a suboxine dr in wisconsin. ## I'm in atlanta and uninsured. The most affordable suboxone doc I've found charges $250 per month just to write the script (cash only, of course!) and then I pay anywhere from $6-8 per pill. I don't want to go back onto methadone for countless reasons, but it is cheaper and may be my only option. If anyone in/around Atlanta knows a doctor who really wants to help and not just exploit desperate people, please let me know! ## I am a 40 yr old disab...
