Should I tell the doctors I've taken a few more than my prescribed suboxone
3 Replies RSS
Omg. This week I would of done anything for pills. Lost my job, boyfriend cheated, kid with suicide attempt, found out I have cancer. I'm on two 8mg a day and I took 3 for a few days for the psychological feeling of relief. Life couldn't get any worse. I will be out Tuesday and I'm not due till Thursday. What do I do? ## I ended up calling my doctor and letting him know everything and he was more thankful I didn't use again. That was more important than me taking two extra doses. ## Hello, Jess! How are you doing? I am very sorry about your cancer diagnosis. And I am very glad that your doctor understood and didn't penalize you for taking those extra doses. What is your cancer prognosis? This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effec... ...

will taking suboxone tell my doctors if my chronic pain is still there
3 Replies RSS
Was taking 6-8 Lortab's a day with Fetanyl patch every 72 hours. Doctors need to know if my spine pain is still present or if meds were just masking. So he put me on Suboxone. I take a half at a time. Three suboxones and I still have spine pain. What does this mean? ## Suboxone doesn't tend to alleviate pain as much as most other narcotics, so after taking it for awhile, you should be able to let them know if you still have the pain and how bad it is, but it will prevent you from going into withdrawals from stopping the other medications. At this point, after being on it for such a short time, you may be having rebound pain from stopping the other medications, so you'll likely need to give it a little more time, before you know for sure. The FDA classifies this medication as... ...

how do i stay on suboxone if the doctor wants me off

How can I stay on suboxone when the doctor wants to take me off? ## Don,t know if it would work but you could tell him you still have urges to use and you don,t think your ready yet. Why do you want to stay on it? ## Hi Bill Brasksi! As Jolter said,"u can tell the Dr that u r still having cravings 2 use." I've been on suboxone 4 almost 8 years, and, I don't plan on getting off it anytime soon. My reason is I feel that I will b back on pain pills, again. (Due. 2 the pain I suffer) I'm just not ready, yet, and, I don't trust myself. ## @Bill, Does your doctor want you off Suboxone indefinitely or is he just trying to get you to taper down from what you've already been taking? In either case, I think it would be a good idea to ask your doctor his reasoning for w... ...

Disappearing Suboxone Doctor
Post a Reply
My doctor has disappeared. He went out in March. At the March appointment I got two scripts for three a day (regular dose is two a day) one to fill that day and another to fill April 17 to cover up to June 17th. There was no script for May and I stupidly did not start looking for new doctor because I trusted this doctor and had been going to him for over 2 years. The day before the June 17 appointment he calls, says he could not keep the appointment. At that time, I had a few left and told him that and it was “I don't know what to tell you and hung up”. I got into see someone a few Saturdays ago and they knew my situation and agreed to not make me start over and instead start right off treating monthly if I had printout from pharmacy saying that I had been on it. The doc... ...

How much Suboxone did the Doctor Prescribe You?
1 Reply RSS
The Doc put me on 5 a day 8mg pills. In all 40mg a day. It makes me really tired during the day, then at night I have Insomnia. I guess it's better then taking Opiates again. It's truely changed my life? If only I can sleep! ## My doctor started me on four a day, which happens to be way to much. I don't know the exstent of your using but I can tell you that I was bad as they come. If you want to sleep then stop taking so much, no one needs that much suboxone. After a while It becomes a regular part of your life which I am sure you know. I now take only eight milligrams a day, I have been on them for nine months. After forcing myself to lower my dose my sleep paterns became one hundred times better. I went from over three hundred milligrams of oxycontin shot intervenously to ... ...

Please tell me why I can't find a physician that provides suboxone and accepts insurance? ## Because only a limited number of doctors can prescribe Suboxone, they must take special training classes to be allowed to prescribe it. ## It depends what you mean by 'accepts insurance'. I 'accept insurance' in my practice.. I don't accept the insurance as 'total payment', though, because every insurer pays differently-- usually depending on how expensive the insurance policy is. Suboxone patients are treated exactly the same as any of the patients in my general psychiatry practice. One insurer may pay $30, and for the same service another insurer pays $150! So if my charge for the service is $155, the first patient will have to pay an additional $125, and the se... ...

I will tell you people this that Suboxone saved me. I was taking Methadone and whatever else I could get when I couldnt get the Methadone and, I started searching on the internet all you do is go google type in suboxone doctors and it will pull up a list by state. Belive me find one and start taking it today. I did it right I dropped down to 30mg of Methadone a day and then went through 3 days of hell. I read if you dont have a good withdrawal going that the suboxone will throw you into it. I will not lie. I didnt like the way I felt after the first two days. Dont get me wrong NO WITHDRAWALS!!!!!!!!!!!!! But the feeling was not what I was expecting but now 4 days later I feel like my old self I mean I really feel good. So please do it right and go through a day or two of hurting for you... ...

I am currently in my 4th month in a methadone clinic in Menlo Park Ca. I have less than 55 days to go. I am down to 20mgs of methadone a day. I do not have medical insurance, but would like to know if I am able to get a prescription for Suboxone. I was treated 7 years ago by Dr. Glatt. San Mateo Ca. I took suboxone back then, and was clean for almost 8 years. Please tell me there is a Dr. in the San Francisco area willing to prescribe suboxone for me. I am on my final stretch and badly want to be free from this drug once and for all. I thank you for taking the time to read this.

suboxone and klonopin
1 Reply RSS
I've been on klonopin and suboxone for years. As long as you don't abuse them and take what the dr tells you to, you won't have a problem. It can and will be death if you abuse them. Hope this helps. ## @brian, You have a good point. Self control goes a very long way. As habit-forming as something like klonopin is, continuing to adhere to your doctor's regimen can be the biggest difference between becoming a fully fledged addict or remaining a normal patient. I know those are just labels, but it really is a delicate balance that one must maintain over the duration of treatment or course of several years, as you can vouch for. Glad to hear that you're still finding them both to be beneficial and not detrimental after all this time. Take care! ...

On day 4 of sub detox, starting 5th day this evening. Anyone else out there doing this? Would love someone to chat with. ## Hello, DeeDee! How are you? I've never taken Suboxone, so I have no experience with coming off of it, but I can tell you that according to the FDA, some of the withdrawal symptoms may include nausea, headache, rebound pain, diarrhea and chills. How are you feeling? Is it going well? Others should be warned that this medication is a narcotic opiate, so it can be habit forming and withdrawing should only be done under the supervision of your doctor. ...

hi... does anyone else out there get relief from chronic depression by taking the suboxone? i take it illegally whenever i run out of percs,and it always makes me feel better,like i can do more things, and i have more week, i go to a suboxone doctor to get on this legally, but should i tell him that i take them illegally and that they help with my depression? i am not sure if i should tell him this..i would love to hear from soneone...thanks ## I take suboxone from a doctor and after you taking percs, yes, he may start you on the suboxone program($$$) if he sees fit- or if you are truly addicted to opiates, but when you tell him you take percs for depression he will definitely add an anti-depressant to your med. list then taper you off the sub. program. It works. Depressio... ...

On Suboxone Getting Skinny
5 Replies RSS
on suboxone one year iam losing to much weight i look like a junkie and depressed. ## I have the opposite problem. I have put on too much weight. Initially, I needed to gain about 20 lbs but I gained 40 and lost the first 20, now cannot get rid of the remaining 20 for anything. Any advice on that? The only thing I can tell you about gaining weight, eat ice cream before you go to bed. It helped me go from drugged out looking to normal in no time. ## Steve, have you consulted your doctor? As evidenced from Laurel's post, if you are using it as prescribed and not abusing it, it usually has quite the opposite effect and most people gain weight. Your losing is unusual and you should consult your doctor to get to the root of the problem. ## i m down to 8 mgs aday now i think my appetite i... ...

how long after taking a percocet can i take suboxone
2 Replies RSS
I'm trying to detox off perks & H. I have taken 10 perk 7.5's in the last 14 hrs to help with withdrawals. I intend on taking some subutex strips & my last dose of perk was 2 hrs ago. Should I take one of the strips soon or wait. ## Hello, Julz! How are you? No, you need to be in full withdrawal from the Percocet, before taking Suboxone, otherwise it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA classifies these medications as being narcotic analgesics, so they have the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. When did your doctor tell you to start it? ## Hi I know this doesn't really apply to your post much but I had a quick question. I took Vicodin this morning abou... ...

2 Replies RSS
i am starting on suboxone next of these messages says never tell the suboxone doctor you were at one time on methadone..why is that so,if it is ? ## I've never heard anyone say such a thing, nor have I read it anywhere. I am guessing it may have come from someone that was abusing it, rather than using it for treatment. There are many people who have successfully switched from Methadone treatment to Suboxone treatment to finally beat their addiction problems. With Methadone, they usually end up needing a lifetime maintenance dose and never get completely drug free. This is not true, however, of the Suboxone and for proper treatment, you should always be honest with your doctor.
