can subutex be a small whit round pill with 8 on one side and an arrow on the other
My friend takes 8mg subutex and when he picked up his script today, they weren't the usual white tablet. They were white and the size of a 2mg subutex with an 8 on one side and an arrow on the other. Could his pharmacist have made a big mistake or are these just a different brand?? ## From what I can tell these tablets do contain 8mgs of Buprenorphine, the active ingredient in Subutex. They were originally released in the U.k. and then became available in the U.S. when the generic market for the medication opened up here. So yes, just a different manufacturer, they are made by Arrow, which explains the logo on the tablet, they use that on all of their products. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thank you so much! I actually did some research on Arrow Generics and saw that they...

taking subutex and percocet together
My doctor just put me on subutex along with percocet. I've been on percocet for yrs for severe and chronic migraines. He told me to take the subutex and if it doesn't work to take a perc. I take 15mg percs at a time. I've read some stuff online that worries me. Some people say if you take percs with subutex you'll go into withdrawals. I went through severe withdrawals with fioricet months ago and I don't want to go through that hell again. I took my first subutex about an hour ago and I still have a migraine so I want to take a perc now. Can I do that or will I get sick? ## I have been taking subutex for the last month or so. about 2 weeks ago i had a terrible migraine, so I took a 10mg percocet. I went into full withdrawal. Throwing up constantly, nausea, still had ...

what are the best subutex doctor s in or close to Huntington wv
I just found out I pregnant little over a week ago and I'm addicted to suboxone! I haven't seen a doctor yet. Do I tell my obgyn this? Or get a subutex doctor first? I really don't want either but I have read so many bad things about quitting cold turkey! I am also originally from Montana and moved to wv about 6 months ago so I'm not familiar with any doctors here! So I need a good subutex doctor and a obgyn that won't judge me!

subutex only drs in pittsburgh
I currently am a subutex dr. at south hills recovery project and desprately need to change. This place is very unprofessional and i have severe medical issues that need addressed. Dr.will not even listen. Please help. ## Hello, Steve! How are you? If you're there to be treated for addiction with the Subutex, then that is what this doctor is supposed to be concerned with, for other medical issues, you'll need to see a different doctor, or see this one on an appointment scheduled just for that if he does such, rather than during your Subutex visits. Is anyone aware of other doctors that they can recommend in that area? 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 constipat...

13 Weeks Pregnant taking Subutex
I have been taking subutex for about 7months now , before that I took suboxone for 2 yrs . I like the subutex a lot better not near as groggy and less headaches. I have been very careful about not getting pregnant and somehow it happened . I take half of an 8mg tablet 3 times a day but here recently since being pregnant it doesn't seem to be working as well , I realize I have a lot of extra blood flow and am assuming that's probably why. Also everytime I go to put them under my tounge within 2-4 mins the morning sickness kicks in and I throw everything up including the majority of the pill . Well it's 9 days till I get my next refill and I'm out and I don't know what to do. Should I call my Dr to see if I can refill early or what ? I guess I'm just afraid to ask ...
