Dry Mouth With Suboxone
3 Replies RSS
I take 3 (8mg) of suboxone everyday. I try 2 take them at the same time each day. I take 2, then, the last one. I even swish my mouth with water b 4 taken them, and, brush my teeth. I take Biotene b 4 bed, as prescribed by Dr. My ? Is, does anyone else suffer with dry mouth when taken suboxone? It doesn't happen all the time, or, all day. But it interferes with the strips getting caught in my teeth, not going in properly and taking longer 2 dissolve. Any similar problems from others? Any suggestions would b helpful. TY! ## Hey Cats, That happens to me sometimes and I don,t think theres much you can do about it except the swishing water around before you take it. ## Hi Jolter! Thank you 4 replying.

How long after taking 30mg oxycodone should u start to take suboxone ## Hi Willis, u should wait until u r having withdrawal symptoms, b 4 u start the suboxone.

Success - so far -Suboxone
4 Replies RSS
Hi all. For 5 years I gradually increased my oxycodone use. I have a degenerative back disorder. The pain is there but I used oxycodone as a crutch. It got worse and worse from 2 5 mg a day to 3 to 5 and ending in 2 30 mg a day costing me 100s of dollars a month. I finally reached out to my psychiatrist who set me up with a suboxone doctor. I took my last 7.5 oxycodone at 2 pm yesterday. Dr said to wait 12 hrs as did alllll the Internet info. I was sick in w/d by 8pm. Was scared to death of this nightmarish precipitated w/d I read about. At 8:30 pm I took 2 mg suboxone as the dr said to start with. Omg I was feeling better. 10 pm another 2 mg and I was AMAZED at how I felt. I didn't sleep very well BUT I'll take that ANYDAY over wondering how to get the next oxy. This morning I ... ...

Suboxone for alcoholic?

I have been taking suboxone 16mg a day for 12 months.But i was told by my doc it can be used for alcoholics. i was not addicted to opiates, just alcohol. i tapered from 16mg to 4mg in just 7 days, which was what the doc said to do. i have been off suboxone for 8 days, just about to come up on 9 days.BUT, i have had the mildest withdrawal symptoms. on day 3 i had runny nose, and day 4 mild RLS for 2-3hrs, then i was fine. my question is : IS IT POSSIBLE THAT BECAUSE I WASNT ON OPIATES, THAT I AM NOT GOING TO WITHDRAWAL THROUGH HELL LIKE EVERYONE I READ ABOUT THATS IN SUB WITHDRAWAL. could i have dodged the bullet? ive slept for 7-10hrs every night with no sleep aids. im getting more energy instead of less. i just cant imagine that almost 9 days later that i would suddenly get hit with wi... ...

Using Suboxone To Get Off And Stay Off Opiates
5 Replies RSS
I was prescribed opiate painkillers for 5 years. I gradually became totally addicted to the point that while these drugs ( Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Oxycontin and others) worked well for their intended purpose, the 'good feeling" they gave me became the focal point of my life. The unavoidable physical and psychological dependence eventually led to serious and harmful consequences- damaged or ruined relationships (divorce in my case) with people who were now less important than the drugs. Responsibilities and interests I had fell by the wayside. Although I have a legitimate need for pain relief due to nerve damage caused by disease, the doctor saw that I was abusing the drugs- taking too much and using them to get high- and cut me off. The withdrawal symptoms were horrific. I went ... ...

Switching From Suboxone To Methadone
7 Replies RSS
I've been on the highest dose of suboxone for about a year now and i don't feel like it's helping at all anymore. I wake up miserable everyday with horrible cravings and i wish i hadn't woken up at all. I want to switch to methadone for pain which is what my family Dr. treats me for. I think my Dr will write for it for pain management. But since i just picked up my suboxone for the month would it be able to be filled and also would the methadone be covered by my welfare insurance? I know he can write for suboxone even though i never asked him to do it since i go somewhere else. I live in Philadelphia i don't know if that makes a difference. Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated. ## Methadone and suboxone can't be taken together.. it's deadly My older s... ...

It works. Depressio... ...

Suboxone for other drugs

I have been on (Suboxone) for about 2 months now,I take 8mgs or break the tablet in half.I have noticed that taking this i do not have the need for anti-depressants like i did or nerve pills and even my ADD medicine.I have not stopped it all together but have went 2 weeks with out it and felt great.I just wanted to know if other people have noticed this who are taking other medications. ## While it contains the narcotic Buprenorphine, which is technically a depressant, it does have the opposite effect on some people. That fact, coupled with the high it can cause some people, is a major contributing to fact to why there are so many that end up abusing narcotics and becoming addicts. Are there any other comments or questions? ...

THEY NOW HAVE GENERIC SUBOXONE PILLS BUT I DO NOT WANT THE GENERIC PILLS.

MY PHARMACY HAS THE NEW GENERICS IN BUT I DO NOT WANT GENERIC SUBOXONE...I WANT THE EXPENSIVE ORIGINAL ONES! ## Hi, Chrissy! I understand your concern, some people do have problems with generic medications. To avoid getting a generic, you need to ask your doctor to write the prescription as 'brand medically necessary' or to not check the substitutions permitted box, to sign on that line, or whatever one of the various methods your state uses. If that's not done, it is normal for your pharmacy to give you a generic, unless your paying cash and reques... ...

suboxone strips vs pills
2 Replies RSS
Maybe im crazy but i don't like the strips, i just don't feel they work as well as the pills. I never ran short with the pills, but the strips i seem to take more. Anyone else feel this way? My dr said she'll only prescribe the strips and it's all in my head. ## Hello, Terisita! How are you? You're not the only one that has said this, it just seems that different formulations work better for different people. However, if you stuck with the strips at the amount you're supposed to take, then your body would likely adjust after a week or so. The only other suggestion I can make if you're not happy is that you try to find a different doctor. Does anyone else have any suggestions? ## Hi, I,m the other way around. I like the strips better then the pills I agree wit... ...

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... ...

I went to my Dr. Whom is also an addiction specialist, in tears. I was begging him to help me. He said I could stay on the methadone and increase or go on suboxone.

What do suboxone look like?
13 Replies RSS
A friend of my husbands mentioned that he was taking subxone. I was curious as to what it was. He showed one to me but it looks exactly like a generic percocet but has different numbers. They are a round white pill with nothing on one side and on the other are the numbers 54 411. however, the only description i'm finding is oval and orange. Is this suboxone or something else? ## A white circle pill with nothing imprinted on either side is it a generic suboxone? ## There is no generic for Suboxone. Suboxone itself is an orange octagon tablet. It has N8 on one side and what looks like a high cross on the other side. There is a generic for Subutex. It is a white tablet and has 54 411 on one side. The 54 is above the 411. Hope this helps. Instead of relying on people who will take advan... ...
