Subutex Vs Methadone For Pain Control
I had an allergic reaction to a medicine that I was prescribed for migraines and on Easter of 2009 I literally died. I flat-lined 3 times and was in a coma for 18 days. Then out of the grace of god a doctor came into my room in the middle of the night and decided to try to Eckmo (sp:) machine on me. IT WORKED! Thank goodness I did wake up and although I had to learn to eat, walk, speak, etc. all over again. All of my organs are 100%. But I ended up with horrible drop foot on both feet and we don't know why, but also horrible bilateral neuropathy. I have been through so many surgeries just so that my feet would actually work so that I could walk again, however we can't seem to control the pain of the neuropathy, because we don't know how I got it. Anyway, I was on 50 mg of th... ...

Pregnancy on subutex
I'm 32 and I have been an opiate addict for about 3 years. It started innocently as treatment for my RA and just blew out of control. I tried detox and all that before and ended in failure, so I found a good Dr and started suboxone treatment and have not touched a pain pill since. However 4 months ago I found out I was pregnant and rather than risk a miscarriage from withdraw my Dr changed my script to subutex. I'm truly terrified of my labor because I have a phobia of needles so an epidural is out of the question for me. My Dr said they can give me a higher dose of pain meds thru my labor for pain but I'm so scared they will overdose me or harm the baby. What are the risks of taking pain medication while on the subutex does anyone know. ## I am not going to deny that labor ... ...

Stronger than subutex
Trying to get off Subutex and get on something stronger for my back . I have rods and screws in my back. I also have other problems with my back, but have horrible pain and need something stronger can anyone help me with an easy way to get off this medicine and fine a stronger medicine that will give me some relief. Thanks ## The only thing I can think of that may work better and be a little stronger would be Fentanyl, which is available in a lollipop form and as a patch that you can change every 48 to 72 hours. Learn more Fentanyl details here. It is over 80 times stronger than Morphine and most people go experience effective pain relief with it. Has your doctor suggested any other options? ## can't believe they gave u subutex for your back pain! why not morphine? hope they explain... ...

maximum dose of Suboxone/subutex & chronic pain
what is the maximum dose of suboxone or subutex when you have seere pain? ## what is the maximum daily dose of subutex? I'm taking it to wean off of opiate pain killers but may need to stay on it for chronic pain. My doctor has me taking 2mg up to 6 times a day, but it feels like too much and I feel sick at 6 mg. I can't imagine taking more. Any answers would be helpful... thanks. ## if u have true clinical pain suboxone will not work it is for opiate detox only it is a opiate blocker which will in turn allow ur brain to make its own dopimine ## feelinbettergoinbroke is wrong, suboxone is used for the treatment of chronic pain. Although, I think the reason you are getting sick is because your doctor has you taking 2mg up to 6 times a day. That in itself is causing you to become ... ...

Suboxone verses subutex
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. ...

And Jerry, Subutex only contains the opiate Buprenorphine, so it can be taken with other narcotic pain medications. Are there any other questions or comments? ...

54 411 subutex 8mg
I have run out of options with "pain pills" have been inquiring about subutex as a pain reliever for chronic pain due to a spinal injury. Ive been on just about every pain pill there is and they just don't seem to have enough "power" to keep my pain level at a acceptable position. Anyone with factual information that I can present to my healthcare provider would be my hero. Thanks ## Hello, Lee! How are you? What type of factual information are you looking for? Anything that would be available on this site or others online is the same as what your doctor already has access to for information. There is nothing new I can provide you with. Have you ever tried the Fentanyl patches? It is a very potent narcotic in a time released patch that sometimes helps those who have ... ...

Why would someone take suboxone and subutex at the same time. Are they not basically treating the same condition? ## Yes, the only difference is that the Suboxone contains Naloxone, to neutralize other narcotics that someone may try to take at the same time. However, the narcotic in both is Buprenorphine, which is used to treat drug addiction and severe cases of pain that is resistant to other medications. Have they both been prescribed to someone? ...

i was on methadone 3x10mg plus roxicodone (oxocodone fast release) 3-5 @ 30mg/day. I stopped methadone several days ago and roxi a day and a half ago before starting subutex treatment today.

Does Anyone know if I am going to feel good anytime soon or is this or something similar in store for much longer time? will I feel better tomorrow and even further better in next coming days? please let me know as I am really doubting if I can carry this on if its going to be this way.

Finding Subutex Dr?
I am really having a hard time finding a doctor who treats with Subutex and not Suboxone. I have chronic pain syndrome and relief-seeking behavior soon became drug-seeking behavior. My psychiatrist put me on Subutex, and my pain was reduced a little, but I wasn't so much into drug seeking anymore. I was treated for 5 years. Then I moved, and I can't find anyone in Ohio who does this. I might have to move back to Chicago! Any suggestions? ## What is your particular issue with using Suboxone, rather than Subutex? They both contain the exact same narcotic to treat pain and/or addiction, Buprenorphine. The only difference is that the Suboxone also contains Naloxone, to help prevent someone from abusing other narcotics, while they are using it. If you are no longer having a problem w... ...

Subutex Spokane Wa
I need subutex in Spokane wa ASAP pls email ## In general, I think pain management doctors would be less reluctant to prescribe Subutex than a regular primary care physician; mainly because they are constantly dealing with patients who are on opiates and this includes those who are also tapering and going through withdrawals as well. So, if you're looking for any sort of doctor, look for a pain management one. I may not have a doctor I can refer you to, but I can provide you with a couple links that may be of service to you in so far as locating pain management doctors within your general area... Input your city or zip code for narrowed results: I'd consider calling up a number of them to s... ...

will subutex block oxymorphone
I take subutex for opiate addiction but I'm still in chronic pain. Will oxymorphone be blocked by buprenorphine in subutex like it blocks other full opiate agonists? ## Hello, Robin! How are you? No, it isn't the Buprenorphine that blocks anything. I believe you're actually thinking of Suboxone, which contains Buprenorphine and Naloxone, it is the Naloxone that blocks other opiates, not the Buprenorphine. Subutex doesn't contain the Naloxone, so it doesn't block them. Learn more Subutex details here.* Learn more Oxymorphone details here.* Oxymorphone is also a very potent narcotic, so you shouldn't take it, without your doctor's approval and supervision. If you're being treated for addiction, it may also be against the rules of your treatment contract. Is... ...

What's the max dosage of Subutex if used for pain?
Hi. I recently stopped taking 180 mgs. of OxyContin twice a day. I had been on that dose for eleven years. I'm now taking 8mgs of Subutex 3x a day. I'm getting some pain relief but I'm still at a 7 for my average pain scale. When I was on the OxyContin I was at an average 10 pain for the last 21/2 years. That is why I went off it. My main question is what is the max dosage of the Subutex I can take a day? Thank you so much. ## From what I've read, the maximum daily dose of Buprenorphine (Subutex) is listed at 32mgs. So with your current dose being 8mgs 3x daily, you're one more dose away from the maximum. If you're also interested in reading other patient reviews, there happens to be another discussion thread here on this same topic, that you can have a look at i... ...
