Subutex Overview

Buprenorphine/naloxone (trade name Suboxone) is a combination drug formulation of buprenorphine, a μ-opioid receptor (MOR) weak partial agonist and κ-opioid receptor antagonist, and naloxone, a MOR silent antagonist, in a 4:1 ratio.[1][2] It is used in the treatment of opioid dependence.[1][2] The purpose of naloxone is to deter intravenous abuse; parenteral administration rapidly induces opioid withdrawal symptoms, while regular, intended use does not (as naloxone is minimally bioa...

I Was On Subutex For My Opiate Addication 7 Days And The Next Day Took A Narco 10 325 Will That Make Me Go Into Full Withdrawl Or Is It Ok Because Im
6 Replies RSS
asking for the first time, but my question is will taking narcos after a week long subutex ( suboxone) treatment, but only one narco a day, prolong my withdrawl from the sub or worse will it send my body back into the exact same place i was phyisically prior to starting the treatment. one day after my 7 day detox at hosptial i took one that i found and im kind of worried it will send me back to page one. i was taking up to 30 pills a day prior to detox and want to succed but it has been 5 days since treatment and im still struggling almost as if i were doing it cold turkey, is the reason for this due to the fact that i took the 1 narco the day after or is it just a normal process im going through? ## Dude. Opiates can make you feel like hell for months. And I mean months. Like up to ten...

White Round Pill 54 411 how to take
75 Replies RSS
How do u take a subutex? Is it the same as taking as taking a subuxone ? ## This is an 8mg sublingual tablet and yes, they are used in very similar ways to treat the same things, except Subutex eliminates the Naloxone that can throw someone into withdrawals from taking it too soon. Learn more Subutex details here. Since it is also an opiate narcotic, it does have the potential to be habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Are there any other questions or comments? Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## Hi katiy, I haven't found any prescribing information, but a recent review from another Subutex user was stating that "the pamphlet says to just let the tablet dissolve under your tongue, and to not swallow the tabl...

Yes they are subutex 153 half moon and the are shaped like a surf board. they work way better then suboxsen strips people keeps saying they cut the strips into millions of peaces if that is the case . You don't need them in the first place. This new one orange subutex 153 half moon surf board shape ones last way longer.. And work great oh my god they work so great ! I recommend them to anyone using the white ones or the strips they both suck compared to the new ones . Take it of leave it but its the truth. if you take just a half it will last you two days ...unreal. ## For these subutex do they taste disgusting like the strips. As of May 1st our physician decided not to do subutex anymore. Luckily I just had my baby I am worried about breastfeeding. An hate the taste of Suboxone it...

taking subutex and percocet together
562 Replies RSS
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 percocet. I usually take 15 mg percocet 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, na...

Subutex after opiates
7 Replies RSS
How long do I have to wait to take subutex after opiates, as i've heard you will withdrawal if you still have opiates in your system? ## That is correct, you must be in full withdrawal, before you take this medication, otherwise it can throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, 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? ## I took a 4 mg Hydromorphone at 8 pm last night. It's currently 12:15 am for me. Can I take a piece of a subutex right now? ## I'm in the hospital on MS Contin 15mg for 3 days. I wanted more relief so I have a subutex...

Subutex Wax Squares Images

would like to see some images of the subutex 'wax square' tablets.(clear purple in color) *want to see the markings... if some have just the one line down the middle verses the line down AND across.( + ) ## Unfortunately, after trying several searches I haven't been able to locate a match in any of the U.S. prescription drug databases, nor any related possibilities on google. If you are certain that this is Subutex, then it's very likely that these pills could either be manufactured outside of the U.S. or that it is a fake (not in the sense that they don't contain the said ingredients or work as intended, but the pills could be manufactured from some unknown company). Until I find a square purple pill online that is regarded as being Subutex, I have yet to think othe...

how long after taking a subutex can you take another opiate
26 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...

I have been on subutex for 9 months now. But i have a very big problem next month k mart pharmacy will no longer carry subutex. I live in the tri cities in tn. I have called about 35 pharmacies around they either do not take new people getting subutex or do not carry it at all. I have no insurance i found 1 that cost 340 which is way more than the 215 i paid at k mart. Also some pharmacies I know only carry the small ones which to me do not work as good as the bigger ones. Huge difference i go back the 8th next month so if there is anyone that knows of a good pharmacy in my area your help would be greatly appreciated ## Hello, Scott! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. However, if you've called the pharmacies, then you've likely not actually received ...
