Suboxone Overview

Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic, 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 (sublingual tablets for moderate to sever...

Want to taper all the way off Suboxone after 10 years
I want to taper off after ten years on suboxone. I've never taken more than 4 mg/day and I'm currently at .5 mg/day and struggling. Had no problem getting from 4 mg down to 1, but it's gotten harder recently as I've gone down from 1 to .5. Everything I'm reading makes me want to give up before going any further. Years ago I was able to taper off oxy little by little until I barely noticed the final step to zero. I've heard that's not possible with sub and that I'm going to feel terrible for a long time no matter how slow I go. I have enough of the 2 mg films to last almost a year at .5 mg/day. Has anyone ever done an extremely slow taper and managed to not go through hell when they finally stop? ## Based on your description I get the sense that it may sim...

finally got oxy prescription filled
I went through withdrawls, got some suboxone and then was unable to work to make a living laid around all day, my doctor finally called a small pharmacy that was cash, but it was only $300 instead of $1,200. I think if you get all your prescriptions and families prescriptions with walgreens, after a while they will refill small amounts for 75 to 90 oxy's or percoset, work your way in slow and it will be mailorder and may have to be insurance,. hydrocodne will be there next target. It is like in 81 they removed qualudes and speed permanently, only in US. Good luck. ## Hi Tom, How's it going? Sorry to hear about the challenges you've been facing with withdrawals and being unable to work. It seems to be a serious problem that many americans are experiencing with the way our sys...

suboxone 8 mg white pill 8 imprint
little round white pill arrow sign pointing to the right on one side imprint number 8 on the other side ## Hi, Smokey! How are you? This is actually a generic for an 8mg Subutex tablet, it's a sublingual that's meant to be dissolved under your tongue. The difference is that the Subutex and its generics don't contain Naloxone, they only contain the Buprenorphine. Learn more Subutex details here. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a white pill that has z10 on one side and nothing on the otherside please help me can not find it at all

round pill 155 crescent moon im so confused
Is it a subxon or subutek? Does anyone know please help asap.. ## Hello, Renee! How are you? This is a generic for Suboxone, it contains 8mgs of Buprenorphine and 2mgs of Naloxone. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

if the orange suboxone pills make me sick will the orange.suboxone film strips make me sick too?
the first time i ever took a suboxone it was the pill forum... i took a very small piece one early morning then like 6 hours later took the same amount piece i did that morning and like 20 min later i was throwing up, face was pale, felt like i couldnt breath, was very uncomfortable.. lasted for about 45 minutes then went away??? ## Hello, Casey! How are you? When did you take it? Were you in full withdrawal from everything, before taking it? If not, then you most likely got sick due to precipitated withdrawals. 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. And since it still contains a very potent narcotic, it could make you sick, itself, as a side effect.
