Need help finding suboxone dr
Hi I live in northern new jersey clifton, rutherford, nutley area and need a good doctor that will prescribe suboxone so I can get off oxycontin. Went to one dr and she wouldn't take me on as a patient. She wanted me to titrate down to a very low dose. I take 3 80mg oxy's a day and have been for many years. Really want to get off of this stuff. will pay cash if have to. ## Well, in such cases, most doctors are going to want you to just taper off of the Oxycontin, because it is easier and safer. Learn more Oxycontin details here. Suboxone is not meant to be used to treat someone that has only been using the prescribed amounts of a medication, it is very potent and is meant to be used by people that have been abusing a medication and taking very large amounts of it.

i need answers about suboxone
my wife has been taking high MGs pain killers! her last dose was 2 am she ran out and took a suboxone and says it didnt make her feel better what shout i do????? ## I would speak with her doctor, Suboxone is highly addictive. If she is also taking other pain killers, it could be very dangerous for her. To learn more about Suboxone click on the link below... Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## The reason it did not make her feel better is because you have to be in slight to moderate withdrawal for Suboxone to work properly. Taking it too soon can actually throw you into worse withdrawal symptoms. ## Please, I need info! My son's girlfriend is pregnant and is on suboxin since Mar. She might already be 4 mths, but I am conserned about my... ...

methadone doctors hickory nc
I have been addicted to pain pills for nearly 20 yrs. can anyone tell me a good methadone doctor in hickory NC. ## Hi, Coy! If you are looking to use it to break your addiction, then you will have to go to a Methadone clinic, a private physician isn't allowed to prescribe it for that under the current laws. To be used to treat addiction, it has to be used under the supervision of those that are specially trained in using it for that in a clinical setting. Have you considered treatment with Suboxone? They have a website at with a feature that will let you search for doctors in your area and it only requires monthly visits to the doctor, with counseling, rather than daily visits like the Methadone clinics. Learn more Suboxone details here. It also has the added bonus of e... ...

Success - so far -Suboxone
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 ... ...

Methadone and suboxone
If u run out of suboxone, can u take a cap full of methadone? If so, how long the wait before taking suboxone again? ## Hello, Papotimbal! How are you? The Naloxone in the Suboxone is likely to just neutralize the Methadone, that's actually why it's used in it, to prevent the abuse of other narcotics, while someone is under treatment with it. And, if you have a treatment contract with your doctor, taking the Methadone may also violate that. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

suboxone and methadone
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. Please post back and let us know how you are doing! ## iv been to several suboxone doctors and i... ...

suboxone treatment closest to zip code 72512
I've been on hydrocarbon since accident resulting in botched back surgery in New Orleans (after Katrina) moved to Ash Flat suboxone Arkansas. Need a doc who prescribes suboxone for chronic pain. ## Hello, CajunConnie! How are you? There is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Most will also not want you to jump from Hydrocodone straight to Suboxone. 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. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone for pain management? If so, that might be the easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? ...

suboxone and methadone dosing
When can I have my suboxone I had 40 mg methadone 7 hrs. ago ## Hello, Teri! How are you? You should follow the instructions provided by your doctor. Suboxone cannot be taken, until you are in full withdrawal from the abused drug of choice. Because along with the narcotic Buprenorphine, it also contains Naloxone, to prevent the abuse of other opiates, while you are being treated with it, so taking it too soon could throw you into severe, dangerous withdrawals. Learn more Suboxone details here. 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.

taking suboxone and phenergan
need to kno if i can take 4mg suboxone ang 50mg phenergan? ## My findings state that there are potentially unsafe interactions that apply to the active ingredients in each of those medications. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of: "Using promethazine (phenergan) together with buprenorphine (suboxone) may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs.

Suboxone in combo with Viibryd
Does anyone know if you can take suboxone in combo with the anti depressant Viibryd? ## You should check with your doctor, or pharmacist to be certain, but I am not finding any interactions listed between the two medications. Have they been prescribed by the same doctor? ## Yes you may take the suboxone and viibryd together. I work for a doctor that has prescribed both for a patient. However you need to make sure you report any side effects to your physician. Some people do quite well and others have had a negative experience in the medications so make sure you follow up as ordered by your doc. ...

I am in Indianapolis. Is it hard to find a doctor here to prescribe suboxone? I am having a hard time finding a doctor. I have been on pain killers for years and not only want to get off them but my doctor and the whole practice is starting to deny any prescriptions for narcotics which seems to be the norm here now.

Since i stoped taking painkillers i have had bad anxiety and trouble sleeping my mind seems to wonder and dwell on things when i go to bad and have had a couple anxiety attacks at work.

yes there are generic Suboxone
there is a generic Suboxone out now. they begin shipping them to pharmacies the last week of February. also, if you have any type of insurance you will automatically get the generic suboxin. The doctor has no say in whether you get the name brand or generic really. even if he writes a prescription for suboxone, the pharmacist will automatically give you the generics if you have insurance. if you don't have any insurance, you can ask the pharmacist to give you generics because they are cheaper. Plus, R and B has stopped making the name brand suboxin pills. they are only making be films now. So whenever your pharmacy runs out of the original suboxin, there will not be any more. ## @sean21, Do you happen to know by any chance who the manufacturer is or what the new generic Suboxone is ... ...

Nuvigil And Suboxone Combined
I have a friend that takes Suboxone and Klonopin at the same time....but he falls asleep EVERYWHERE all the I'm considering having him try Nuvigil...What are the risks of the meds being combined? ## Well, unless you are a doctor, you shouldn't be having him try any medications, that is something that should only be done by a medical professional. That brings the relevant questions, has he talked to his doctor about the problem? Is he supposed to be taking them both, at the same time? If so, then it is highly likely that he is on too high of a dosage of one, or the other, in which case, it is much safer to adjust one of those medications, than to risk the side effects and complications associated with adding a new medication. ...

CNt they fill it early if the dosage was increased? I have caresource. Thanks ## Hello, Jackie! How are you? They would need a new prescription from the doctor showing that the dosage was changed, in order to fill it early for you. They can't just take your word for it.

i have been diagnosed with having a tumor that needs to be removed i am worried about if something were to happen suddenly that i would be unable to have surgery do to the blockades of nioxin that suboxon has and not subutex is this correct ## Suboxone has Buprenorphine & Naloxone in it. The Naloxone will partially or completely reverse any narcotic effects. Subutex only has Buprenorphine. I have chronic pain & have been on Subutex for years (34 mg per day) & have had a couple of operations in this time. I believe you would be much better off on Subutex. It would be worth talking to your Doctor about your concerns.
