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...

ive taken 132mgs of suboxone over the last 2 weeks how can i guit ## Hello, Nolabob! How are you doing? A slow taper would be best and safest, your doctor should be able to help you set up a proper tapering schedule that will prevent most of the withdrawal effects. Have you discussed it with them, yet? This is an opiate, so withdrawal effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, fever and chills. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. ## Hey Vermon, My Dr has me on 12mg of suboxone 1 time daily I told him I wanted to get off of them asap I was sick and tired of being sick an tired Im 62 yrs old an had an addiction problem all my life or rather since I was 8or 9 yrs old .

can u take suboxone and codine
18 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...

How long after you Stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
463 Replies RSS
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...

I have this weird red and grey spots on my foot and extreme pain throughout my foot as well from a subutex injection. It was very swollen for the first day or two a different started to get better then then pain just got worse and worse I can barely even walk on it. If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions please comment with any suggestions at all. ## Hello, Mike! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problem you've had. I'd suggest having it checked out by your doctor. It sounds like you may be having a bad reaction to it, or a blockage may have developed and, if that is the case, then it needs medical attention, before the tissue goes necrotic. The FDA classifies this medication as being an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potenti...

I've been on 16-24 mg of suboxone for about 4 years and I've tried time after time to get off of it, butt I cannot afford to take of work or lose my job because of withdrawals and I have to be able to take care of my family. I've tried tapering on my own and with the help of my suboxone doctor who recommended that I stay on it, and have tried withdrawal ease, and cold turkey. After much research I found that many people who are stuck on suboxone get off by stopping for a week, then going back to short acting opiates such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, or morphine, then tapering off after a month or two. I would like to find a doctor to help me with this rather than risking it on my own, plus it would be extremely hard to do if I didn't have a prescription, especially since I...

What dosage of sublingual strips are relevant? It's difficult to provide an answer, without knowing the basis for comparison. Can you pleas post back with more details? Thanks! ## The pill #155 is soooooooo muchhhh weaker than the suboxone strips! An 8mg suboxone strip compares to one #155 pill in the generic form.

Ive been on and off of suboxone for years and this generic s*** is gunna put me off .i refuse to take it everyday! In brand will always be ...

27 Replies RSS
I have been on 8 mg/2mg Suboxone strips for 1 year. I am having a tooth (back molar) extraction in the morning. I used my Suboxone strip this morning & the tooth extraction is at 9:30 am tomorrow. If I don't use another Suboxone strip before the extraction, would I be able to use Hydrocodone after my surgery? I don't want to get sick, but I am terrified of going through this surgery with no pain meds. Please help. ## should be 48 hrs to alow to leave your system ## So if I took a 10 mg Hydrocodone after not taking a Suboxone for 24-28 hours, will it throw me into withdrawals? That would do me in after surgery to end up in wd's. ## Sorry to say but 8 mg of Suboxone is way stronger then any hydrocodone. It would take a year for you to even feel the effects. Tolerance takes...

I have been taking 1mg xantax a day for over a year how long will it take to be out of my system I weigh in app. 160lbs have not taken any for 6 days ## HI, Susie! How are you feeling? Have you had any withdrawal symptoms? This is a medication you really shouldn't stop cold turkey, because doing so causes the risk of seizures, so please be careful. As to how long it will take to process out of your system, so any side effects stop and your body gets used to no longer having the medication added, that will take about 4 to 6 weeks. ## I have been on Clonazapam for 20+ yrs. I am currently on 3 mg a day. Ive had seizures and Horrible WITHDRAWLS including suicidal ideations and an obsession with my death, will I have to take this medication forever?
