Subutex Overview

Buprenorphine is a semisynthetic opioid derivative of thebaine. It is a mixed partial agonist 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: Cizdol, Subutex, Suboxone, Zubsolv, Bunavail (available as buprenorphine HCl alone or buprenorphine and naloxone HCl; typically...

I was prescribed zubsolv for pain and found that one if the ingredients is making me overly nauseated and have horrible headaches. I was informed Subutex doesn't have that particular ingredient. Does anyone know if it help chronic pain(for gi pain) and if there are bothersome side effects? ## candy Your not drinking enough water,with that drug you need to maximize your water intake.Take care and God bless. Rocket666 ## How much water do I need to drink with the med to keep me from getting sick? It hurts to eat or drink so I have t force myself and deal with the pain which hopefully will eventually subside. Also is Subutex better than zubsolv? ## Hello, Candy! How are you? No, it isn't your water intake. Some people just have that type of reaction to the Naloxone that's in it...

New Subutex laws
117 Replies RSS
I went to see my doctor this week and he told me that the fda and the idea had passed a new law for prescribing subutex. As of July 1st 2015 subutex can only be given to pregnant woman or to someone with documentation saying they can't take suboxone. If you don't have that you will be put on suboxone. ## They Are Both the same thing. Better yet stop doing narcotics, get off opiates completely and get a life. Do you focus on school and work as much as you do opiates being controlled By the DEA??? ## Jim, not that it's any of your business, but yes I do focus on my career now that I'm off the opiates and taking subutex. I received my B.S. in molecular biology and am currently completely my 2nd year of medical school. So now that you know a little about me, what about you? ...

Subutex Those Who Prescribe It Information
4 Replies RSS
Hello, this thread will help many people. It is designated to provide addicts information concerning where they can get prescribed Subutex (Buprenorphine) instead of Suboxone. Let's face it, Naloxone can cause problems. Subutex is significantly cheaper and is an effective alternative for people who cannot tolerate Suboxone - for whatever reason. I will provide the names of a few Physicians/Places that I am certain are compassionate towards those sensitive to Naloxone. However, let's build this thread: help one another by providing potentially life-saving information. If I see that others' are contributing, I will keep submitting information as I find it and I will keep digging for the sake of those in desperate conditions. Let's support one another and get this thing up ...

SETTING RECORD STRAIGHT!! how long after taking subutex can u take methadone
8 Replies RSS
Both subutex and suboxone will cause precipitated withdrawal. It is the bupe that connects to the receptors and kicks the methadone out. Naloxone is just an extra blocker!! I am a social worker at a clinic. Waiting at least 12 hours only if on low dose 20mg or less should b OK. But 24 preferred. ## If you take a little less then half of a 8mg subutext 15 hours ago is it safe to take 20mgs of methadone does anyone know! ! ! ## Why do people always minimize Naloxone? EMTs give the ODs Narcan, which brings the patient into withdrawal. Naltrexone (Vivitrol) has been used with chronic opiate addicts and alcoholics in several forms, pill, 30 day shot, implant. It is a VERY strong blocker and has many side effects. I have personal experience with this medication & know that it is not somet...

54_411 vs M 924
22 Replies RSS
I've been on Subs for a while and i just received the Mylan 924 for the first time... I've been with Roxanne 54_411 for some time now... Does anyone have an opinion as far as which manufacturer is better. Or what's your opinion personally? ## Hi Strawz, Although I haven't taken Subutex (buprenorphine), I did want to offer an outsider's opinion when it comes to switching tablets or manufacturers in general. The truth of the matter is that each tablet can affect each person differently, which would in essence render any feedback null as there's no way to determine if you will experience the same benefits or side effects as someone else, until you take it and know for yourself. I think this is largely due to the seemingly ever-changing list of inactive ingredients (...

Not being able to afford a Dr.-a friend of mine sometimes gives me acouple of her subutex.(like suboxone).They come in a pack where you have to punch out each gum.They are square,and see-through purple.The only markings are a line going down,and a line going across.Like this +, so you have 4 little squares.But today when she gave me some, they looked the same,except there was only ONE line down the middle.I don't know why.Is anyone familiar with this drug-and seen them with just the one line down the middle? I cant find an image of subutex wax squares anywhere on-line so far. Thank you. ## Are you sure they are Subutex?
