Suboxone cost

My son is in rehab and they started him on suboxone one 4md in morning and 8 mg in afternoon. I can't find a provider that prescribes this in northern Harford County Maryland (Not Dr. Gay Please) How much is sub for an entire month supply or even daily. ## this site does not prescribe nor sell any medications. The price, however, can vary depending on where you purchase them, it is, quite expensive, though and you will not find a cheap price for it. Do you have any type of insurance to help with this? Have you spoken to the doctors about the possibility of Methadone as an alternative, since it has been on the market much longer and is much cheaper? Most doctors do prefer Suboxone, now, since it has enabled many people to get completely drug free, while a lot of people who use Methad... ...

Do doctors use Suboxone for pain?
4 Replies RSS
I was just wondering if some doctors prescribe Suboxone for pain? ## Most don't and from what I understand, insurance companies won't cover it for anything other than drug dependency issues. I have heard of a few people who have taken it for pain but its typically only prescribed for pain as a last resort because of other medical issues making the person unable to take anything else. Why are you trying to get on suboxone? Long term use of it for something like pain management is in my opinion a nastier habit to kick than regular opiates. The Dr Appts are very expensive and the withdrawal lasts months. If your concerned about taking opiates for pain I'd urge you to look into other alternatives. And if you're looking to get off of opiates for pain management just remember,... ...

Suboxone Shortage

I have been on 2mg suboxone for over 4 years to treat chronic back/ neck pain. Yesterday I was told that there is a backorder on suboxone. Suboxone is the only drug that will relieve the pain with out mind or mood altering effects. Has any one heard about this shortage ## Yes, there has been a recent shortage listed due to manufacturing delays, though I can't find any more precise details. Have you talked to your doctor, pharmacist about it? They may be able to suggest an alternative medication, or dosage. ## Yes I've been traveling recently aroun time to fill my 2mg pills & manufacture back up- from WV to louisiana where I'm from so having to get dr to write me the 8mg pills again. This site has info: even when the FD... ...

I am looking for a doctor who prescribes suboxone in the New Orleans, slidell Louisiana area. I am a sing le mom with no insurance, can't afford 350 a visit and prescription cost. My kids have mdicaid but I don't.

Suboxone And Throwing Up
1 Reply RSS
I have been on 8mg Suboxone sublingual 2 times a day for the past 12 days and I am still throwing up some days and nauseated badly always. I have really awful indigestion and everytime I belch which is constantly, a little vomit comes up.Is this normal and what can I do? I know it takes a few days to get used to the drug, but throwing up everything defeats the purpose. I take Suboxone as an alternative to opiates for chronic back back pain. ## Have you tried taking it with a small meal and not on an empty stomach? That can often help with the nausea caused by narcotics. Learn more Subutex details here. Alternatively, I'd suggest speaking to your doctor, as they may be able to prescribe something to help with the nausea. ...

So, if this is applicable, then you'll need to inform your doctor of the problem, because they can designate your prescription as 'brand medically necessary', in order to get them to cover the name brand for you, again. The other alternative, if you're paying for it you... ...

Just seeing if anyone had free trails of suboxone ot cheap from Alaska I pay cash no insurance 700.00 s month ## Hi Kristy, If you're trying to save money on your medication, I would recommend looking into various prescription drug 'discount cards' that you can print off from your computer and show your pharmacy at the time of filling your script. A simple google search should bring up some options for you in that area. Another alternative would be to ask your pharmacy if there are any "patient assistance programs" for Suboxone. From what I understand, there are certain drug manufacturers who offer these types of programs for patients who otherwise can't afford their medication. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Suboxone Details I hope... ...

subsal mint tablet suboxone
7 Replies RSS
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... ...

Subutex Those Who Prescribe It Information
2 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 ... ...

Looking for methadone doctor in jacksonville fl
1 Reply RSS
Hi all. I'm really hoping someone here can help me. I suffer from a protruding disc and degenerative disc disease in my lower back. I've been in pain management programs since 2011. At one point, my oxy use got to the point where I was using 100+mg daily. Once I realized that I couldn't continue on the path that I was on, I voluntarily got myself in to a suboxone/subutex program in Jacksonville, Fl. Right away, I realized that I couldn't take the suboxone because of the headaches that it gave me, but the subutex worked amazing for withdrawls and does help to make the pain more manageable. Now that I've been on it for nearly 8 months months, I've been considering methadone as an alternative because my insurance only agreed to pay for the subs for up to one year. I... ...

Is there any form of medicaid in Michigan that will cover office visits and prescriptions for suboxone? ## @hhhbk2469, Looking at the 2014 Preferred Drug List for Michigan's Medicaid Coverage (linked below), I didn't see Suboxone listed on there. However it appears as though Methadone is; in case your doctor recommended that as an alternative. Everyone responds to these types of medications differently though, so at the end of the day I just think it's best to do what feels right for yourself, and if that means holding out for Suboxone through some other type of coverage then that may be something to talk with your doctor about to see if he/she can help recommend a different program that does cover the type of med(s) you require. I hope th... ...

The long jumble of words is very hard to decipher. Now, that said, first of all, there are no Percocet tablets on the market that contain 20mgs of Oxycodone, the maximum available is 10mgs. As to detoxing, if you have experienced seizures before, you should probably look into a safe alternative, such as treatment with Suboxone. It contains Buprenoprhine and Naloxone. It is given when you are in the early withdrawal stages and is slowly tapered, to prevent the worst of the withdrawal effects and help you stay drug free. Are there any questions or comments? ...

is it any easier to detox from opana than methadone
1 Reply RSS
Is it any easier to detox (get off of and stop using, permanently) from Opana ER than it might be from Methadone? ## Hello, Glenn! How are you? Yes, most other opiates are easier to get off of than Methadone. It is actually notoriously hard to ever get off, because it causes long-term severe withdrawals and cravings, that's why other solutions have been sought to replace it. Most people treated with Methadone for addiction never truly get to be drug free, they usually end up on a lifetime maintenance dose. 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. Another alternative for addiction treatment would be Suboxone, which is newer and enables most people to become ... ...

Dry mouth results in inconclusive initial employment saliva drug screen

I was unable to get any results from a saliva initial employment drug screen. I suffer from dry mouth as a result of taking 3 prescriptions daily. Does the prospective employer need to offer an alternative test method? I did not fail the test. Two test attempts came up inconclusive. Can I be denied employment for having dry mouth? ## Do you take suboxone? If you do then NEVER EVER take a drug screen orally. It will never be accurate. I have experienced this before myself. ask your doctor as well. My physician explained to me that only a urine, hair and blood is an accurate way. Blood being the most accurate especially for testing levels. ...

Subutex And Drug Testing
1 Reply RSS
I was being prescribed Suboxone, and my doctor just switched me to Subutex. I smoke pot, and I have tried the whole dissolving a Suboxone piece in clean urine thing (which doesn’t work). Now that I am on Subutex if I dissolve a small piece of that in clean urine will it show positive for an opiate like it did when I did this with the Suboxone? Another alternative is having someone with clean urine take a Subutex the night before, and collect their urine. This has worked except she does a drug test at random, therefore most of the time I waste a Subutex. If I get the clean urine, someone to take a Subutex, and freeze the urine, will the Subutex still be detected in the urine sample I freezed 4 weeks earilier? ## Yes it will show up sub ox or tex just use small amount s... ...
