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...

Pharmacist refusing to fill my script of suboxone. What do I do???
219 Replies RSS
I wet to my doc 7 days early because of running out early. I took my new script to pharmacy and said, this is early so I won't be using insurance. My doc said you can call him if necessary. Well no one wanted to. They filled two per day for three days. On the third day I asked to fill the rest on insurance for the next day. I was one day early. When I called the next morning to have my daily two filled the pharmacy manager said no we won't be filling it for another 5 days. Go to the ER for your withdrawals but don't come here because I won't give it to you. Has this happened to anyone else???? ## If you run out of suboxone too soon- you might need to increase your dose? That way you won't have to worry about being out of it too soon. As for me- my doctor decided to m...

Is My Information Shared Between Pharmacists In Other Communities If Ie I Get A Script Filled Elsewhere
6 Replies RSS
If I am away for a weekend and need to see a dr, AND he writes me a prescription, does the pharmacist see all of my infomation come up on the computer? ## No, not if they aren't in the same pharmacy chain or affiliated with the same pharmacy you use regularly. However, the government does have all of this information. So, for instance if you are getting prescriptions for controlled substances and are doctor shopping elsewhere to get more of them, then it will be discovered by the federal authorities. If they detect such suspicious behavior, then it will be reported to all pharmacies that you have used, as well as any in your immediate area. Are there any other questions? ## Theres only a few states left which are not in the national pharmacy board data base. That is the database of ...

298 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 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.

mixing suboxone and vyvanse
2 Replies RSS
If I take 1/4 suboxone strip and a 60mg vyvanse, will it make me sick or sweat a lot? ## Hello, Lucy! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between these two medications. Has your doctor prescribed them both? The Naloxone in the Suboxone only neutralizes other narcotics. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. As to the Vyvanse, since it is a stimulant, it may cause sweating, along with the risk of being habit forming and causing other side effects, such as nausea, headache and irritability. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Does suboxone intensify lisdexamfetamine after taking lisdexamfetamine or will the suboxone weak...

How late into pregnancy is it safe to stop taking suboxone?
124 Replies RSS
I am almost 14 weeks pregnant. I want to stop taking my Suboxone completely, but have heard it can cause premature labor if stopped too far into pregnancy. My doctor also said that withdrawals can not cause miscarriage or hurt the unborn baby in any lasting ways. I have been taking 2mg of subutex (now Suboxone) for the past week. Am I okay to cease all Suboxone use, or should I wait another week or so? ## From what I am reading,using it while pregnant is not advised, because it can cause withdrawal symptoms in the baby. As to any other details, there really aren't any. It's used during pregnancy has never actually be studied. As to whether or not you should stop taking it, I am afraid I have to defer to your doctor on this one, since they do know your medical history. Following ...
