I've been in two different suboxone clinics that I couldn't afford to keep going to because I had to pay to go to the groups every time I went to get a prescription. I no longer have transportation. I have Medicaid and Medicare. I'm also mentally and emotionally handicapped and I'm on disability. I have no one to help me do this. I cannot take suboxone because the naloxone gives me migraines!

can u take subutex after using methadone for two days
4 Replies RSS
I have been on about three quarters of generic subutex pills per day for over a year now. I ran out of subutex and took 40 mg of methadone the first day and 30 mg the next. I now have my subutex and I am wondering how long I should wait to take it... My husband had done this in the past were he only used the methadone a few days and switched right back to subutex the next day ( at least 24 after) . I just wanted to see if anyone else has had any experience with this. I do not want to be sick I've been through precipitated withdrawls before. TIA ## Subutex only contains the narcotic Buprenorphine, it doesn't contain the Naloxone that is in Suboxone, which would cause the precipitated withdrawals. This is a narcotic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side e...

Subutex dr in johnson city, TN
2 Replies RSS
I need to know the name of the doctor in Johnson City Tennessee who prescribes Subutex and benzo's at the same time I am interested in maintenance. ## Most Drs won't prescribe the two together. Because they both are downers. A lot of people dont know that. They lower your respiration. Finding a dr that will prescribe the two will be difficult. You can always seek a primary care or Ive heard some place called Graceland that would write the benzos and just find another doctor for addiction purposes solely. ## Restoration and wellness is located on Susanna Drive in Johnson City the doctor's name is dr. Morris he will prescribe you benzos and Subutex

i have no idea I think it a subutex can someone plz help me find out? ## Hi linny, You were actually right on target with your assumption! Based on the description provided, I found an orange oval-shaped pill with a half moon logo on one side and 153 on the other, to be an 8mg Buprenorphine hydrochloride (sublingual) tablet; aka generic subutex. For added verification, the manufacturer is listed as Actavis. Inactive ingredients are reported to be as follows: citric acid anhydrous + crospovidone + FD & C yellow #6 HT aluminum lake + lactose monohydrate + magnesium stearate + mannitol + pregelatinized starch (maize) + povidone + sodium citrate dihydrate I hope this helps! ## A good friend of mine has been on subutex for years now.

After taking the subutex my period started after 5 months. Thats the only kind that I can take. Where can I find the 54/411. In Virginia phrarmacies the 54/411. ## Hello, Breeze7777! How are you? Unless you're trying to get pregnant, there is no harm in skipping your period, as long as you regular pap smears are normal. So, it's really nothing to worry about. As to which pharmacy carries that one, I'm sorry, but there is no database that lists which medication from which manufacturer that any given pharmacy carries. The FDA lists this medication as being a narcotic analgesic that is most often used to tr...
