OK I'm allergic to sulfur drugs and I was taking suboxon and kept getting sick when I spoke with my pharmacist about it he said its because soboxon as a sweetener in it and that if u are allergic to sulfur drugs u will be allergic to suboxon has anyone ever heard of this ## Hi bee, I haven't actually heard of sweeteners that contain sulfur until reading this post. But the only one I found (known as Saccharin), is classified as a sulfonamide. In light of this, I think it's always a good idea to research each inactive ingredient just as throughly as the active ones, to ensure preventative measures against certain allergies. Did the pharmacist mention which type of sweetener they used? ...

Hi, when I take suboxone I breakout in hives and skin rashes. Is there anything else I can take. ## Hello, Michele! How are you? What are you taking it to treat? Have you tried Subutex, since it doesn't contain the Naloxone that Suboxone does? The FDA classifies this as being an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ## When I firsf started suboxone I broke out in rashes/hives for the first couple weeks which subsided I fhought I was going to have to see if the dr could swap me to something else but it did eventually subside for me... This may not be the case for you so I suggest discussing with your health care provider who perscribss you the suboxone ...

Can you take nitrofuranton antibiotic and suboxone 8mg ## Hello, Chrissy! How are you? I didn't find any interactions or problems listed between these two medications, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. The Nitrofurantoin may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Suboxone is an opiate narcotic that carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, drowsiness and constipation.

allergic reaction to naltrexone
3 Replies RSS
Hi, I am trying to understand the differences between Naloxone and Naltrexone because I was prescribed Naltrexone tablets over the summer and had a severe allergic reaction and had to be hospitalized. I do not know if the Naloxone in Suboxone would give the same reaction, but I do not want to find out. If anyone can explain this to me, I would greatly appreciate it. =) ## Hello, Kkbc! How are you? While they both do the same thing, they are two different substances. So, while you may have had a reaction to the Naltrexone, you might be okay with the Naloxone, but there is also a slight chance that you could have a reaction to it, too. Typical side effects to Naloxone may include nausea, change in mood, increased sweating and nervousness. If you do have a problem with it, Subutex is alway... ...

Suboxone verses subutex
3 Replies RSS
Dear VerWon, I now know the difference between suboxone and subtext. But, why would one Dr. Choose one over the other? Is the suboxone used for addiction and subtext used for just pain? ## Hello, Cats68! How are you? As I said in my prior post, Suboxone includes Naloxone to prevent the abuse of other narcotics, while someone is being treated with it for addiction and that is exactly why it is usually preferred over Subutex. Subutex is usually the choice when someone has a bad reaction to the Naloxone or is pregnant. However, both can treat pain. Does this clear it up for you? :-) ## Dear Dr. Thank u for the information. All cleared up. ## As for mself....I had major allergic reactions to generic suboxone pills as well as name brand and subutex. The only form of combination of meds was S... ...

I am currently taking subutex cause I am allergic to something in suboxone. My doctor just asked me if I wanted to try something called subsal. Its new and I guess its a mint flavor tablet.... What is it ## Hi leah, Sorry to hear about your allergy to Suboxone. However, I haven't been able to find any specific details on any medications by the name of Subsal. Did your doctor mention anything else about what it's supposed to be used for? If the Subutex is working well as an alternative option, then in my honest opinion it may be best to stick with what you already know, since different brands can still effect each person differently. So switching medications is somewhat of a gamble in that regard. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Subutex Details I hope this help... ...

ON SUBOXONE?NOT ONE DOCTOR WHO WILL PERSCRIBE ME SUBUTEX? ## Hello, John! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Is your allergy listed in your medical records? If not, that might be the problem. Suboxone is preferred, because it helps prevent the abuse of other medications, while someone is under treatment with it, as listed by the FDA. 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 constipation. Thus, Subutex is a last resort and only used, when someone has docume... ...

Switching from Opana to Oxycontin
1 Reply RSS
Hello, I am currently dependent on Opana and every time I lower it I get very sick. My plan is to decrease daily and I'm not doing well with that. I am severely allergic to Suboxone so my approach would be a Methadone taper however I don't know how much? I plan to switch to Oxycontin tomorrow to see if I can at least to that. I'm scared and broke as well As humiliated. Any suggestions please ## Hi, Susie! Sorry about the problem that you're having. Reducing daily is actually a very bad idea. In order to avoid the severe withdrawal effects that make you so ill, it needs to be tapered very slowly. I understand that it is frustrating, but that's really the only way it will work…..both Methadone and Suboxone are tapered very, very slowly, sometimes over a period of... ...

46 Replies RSS
I am seeking help. I am from the Winston-Salem area of North Carolina. I am an addict of 18 years. It is time to quit. I have friends who have left the addiction circle. They have successfully taken buprenorphine. Here is my problem. I am severely allergic to the blocker in suboxone - naloxone. It is not an option for me.

Stings my tongue and mouth while desolving SUBUTEX 8mg
1 Reply RSS
I have been on regular suboxone for almost two years now and this month I had to pay nfor my medicine so I got the Generic subutex 8mg and holy cow it stings my tounge and mouth so bad, suboxone never did that. What the heck? Why does it do that and could it be an allergic reaction? ## Subutex doesn't list any side effects pertaining to such symptoms, however I do get the sense that it may be some type of allergic reaction to one or more of the binders/fillers in the medication. This type of response may also indicate a hypersensitivity to the medication. I wouldn't recommend taking any more if you keep responding to it in this way. Because if it really is an allergic reaction or hypersensitivity, the warnings for this drug state that you should contact your doctor immediately (... ...

Looking for a doctor in Western PA who will prescribe Subute
Post a Reply
I am not allergic to suboxone. However they give me headaches and prices are outrageous! I was tricked into switching from subutex to trying these new Zubsolv's which has made my life hell, literally. I am not an abuser. I have been struggling with treatment itself in terms of finding a doctor who will prescribe what helps "Subutex" and who will not take me off it in a month or two and try experimenting my life with suboxone, subzolv and whatever else. I'm not seeking this medication to abuse it. It works so perfectly for me and its so stressful to think that nobody will prescribe it. I pay $2.50 for Subutex,$9.80 for subzolv and $10.17 for suboxon film. I'm just trying to get by in life with the least amount of stress possible. Where can I find a doctor who will unders ...
