Subutex Doctor - East Coast - Help Me Find One Please!!!!

I have been on Subutex for a year. My Doctor has retired, abruptly. I cannot find another physician willing to prescribe me Subutex (24 mg. daily) instead of Suboxone. I travel a lot w/ work. I would be grateful if anyone could tell me ANY Doctor anywhere on the East Coast that prescribes Subutex.

orange subutex 153

I refilled my monthly subutex Tuesday and received orange oblong tablets inscribed 153. My pharmacy has carried 54/111 over three years. Does anyone know if the orange ones are going to permanently replace all other generic Buprenorphine? Also, are any other patients experiencing loss in quality?

Subutex 8mg

Can I have a tooth extracted if I'm using subutex? Will the local anaesthetic still work okay? Regards, Dave ## It should, since there is nothing in Subutex to neutralize it. The anesthetic used by dentists is not a narcotic and the Subutex doesn't contain Naloxone, anyway. However, I'd suggest making sure the dentist knows you're taking it, just to be on the safe side. Learn more Subutex details here. Having had 2 teeth pulled, while I had an active infection so the anesthetic didn't work, I can assure you that's something you don't want to experience. Can you post back and let me know how it goes? ## I am having 2 teeth extracted by being put to sleep and I currently take subutex I am concerned about being out under while on this medicine has anyone experie...

new on subutex, day 3 now and side effects quite bad
8 Replies RSS
Hi all, I am on the subutex programme for a tram and codeine addiction that got way outta control. This is day 3 of the programme and things aint goin too well on the side effects front. I am itching like a flea ridden cat when trying to sleep, pharmacist says it will calm down in a few days, I wanted to hear from experienced patients only on this as to whether its true? (very akin to the tramadol itches) Also the main problem is that me and my partner are trying for a baby and I cant climax which is a major problem? pharmacist looked it up in the list of side effects and there was nothing listed. Have any of the male patients experienced this and if so does that sort itself out too? On the plus side, I am almost 4 days clean (if you dont count the meds) just need to sort these side eff...

switching from subutex to suboxine
Post a Reply
I have currently been on subutex for a little over 3 years at first it was mainly due to the price difference between the subutex And subixone then I ended up pregnant and gave birth in July and in between that time the laws changed and my Dr isn't allowed to prescribe subutex unless your pregnant but I had gotten a extra 6months due to breast feeding and at my last appointment he said he had no choice? My first issue is I'm still breast feeding so what does this mean for my daughter? Secondly I have been perfectly fine on subutex no slips at all! Now I have been taking the subixone for about 6 days and I feel like I'm dying? Is this normal? Will it pass?

how long after taking a subutex can you take another opiate
4 Replies RSS
I took an 8 mlg subutex about 24 hours ago. Is it safe to take roxicodone or other pain meds? ## No, they need to be separated by about 72 hours, in order for the other pain medications to be effective. The FDA classifies this medication as 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? ## Subutex has no opiate blocker in them so you should be fine... suboxone on the other hand has an opiate blocker therefore depending on your body's tolerance and whatever you may or may be able to take other opioids... But I know from experience Subutex is different from suboxone, another opiate medication should work. ## I took a 1/4 dose of Buna...
