drs in upstate SC who take medicaid for suboxone
Are there any drs in upstate SC who take medicaid for suboxone?? How long will medicaid pay for the suboxone? ## Hello, Julie! How are you? I am not sure what the regulations are for Medicaid covering it. I'd suggest contacting them to check. As to the doctors, there is a search engine available at click here, that you can use to search and it will include their contact information so you can call them to ask. 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? ## It is up to each state to decide what meds they want to cover. You can call Medicaid in your state or you can ask a pharmacist. Although, not every pharma... ...

i use suboxone and want to start subutex instead
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. Goodluck! ## There is not enough in this to interfere with large doses or narcotics or anesthetics. ## ineed to find a subutex dr for cronic pain i hav a bad back... ...

Ok I was on subutex an now supposedly a state law n Tn that they can only prescribe tex to pregnant or nursing women. I now am prescribed suboxone tabs and many pharmacies turned me down even though they were on my list from the dr. So I went to Wal-Mart where I had been going and they had to order the tabs.

Suboxone in South Carolina area
I just moved here from Tn. I'm having a very hard time finding a doc. here. I've been without my meds now 6 days and I'm feeling the withdrawal affects. Please help ## Hi, You can go to the suboxone site and put in your zip code and find sub drs. in your area. You can also just google "soboxone doctors in south carolina" Theres a health law called "the 3 day rule" that lets a dr. give you suboxone for 3 days but it must be administered by doctor which means that there must be a pharmacy on site. A doctor in the emergency room at the hospital could do this if they know about this rule. I,m guessing the average doctor probably doesn,t. Good luck! ## I've been 2 the er they won't help me I've also called several clinics they won't help me until I... ...

is suboxone or methadone better?
hi i'm a 29 yr old male with chron's disease and a very high tolerance to pain relief and i was just wondering if subutex/suboxone was better than the methadone for pain management i have been on 20mg of oxys twice a day for about 6 months and they only work when i double dose or boot em up and now the doctors are talkin about putting me on the beup or methadone program and i'm not sure which one has more merit if ya know what i mean lol ## The Buprenorphine in the Suboxone is stronger and doesn't have the same addictive tendencies that the Methadone does. People who no longer need it for pain, or addiction treatment, often have better luck tapering off and becoming medication free, as compared to Methadone, where they often require a lifetime maintenance dose. The withd... ...

Suboxone and Oxycodone Rx
Hello, I have been taking Suboxone for approximately 3 weeks. I was taking opiates, legally, for four+ years but recently I had problems after surgery by increasing my dosages and eventually running out quite often which lead all my doctors to a rehab place. I went through 3 weeks of Intensive Outpatient Treatment which was complete crap but it kept me busy during the morning. I now have an Rx from my PCP who KNOWS about me being on Suboxone and said to stop the Suboxone for a couple/few days and then start the Oxy's. Here's my question: Can I fill the Rx for OxyIR when I'm going to be picking up my most recent Rx of Suboxone tomorrow? I feel like the pharmacy might be thinking it's Doctor Shopping but if they call my PCP, he knows about the Suboxone use. He desperately ... ...

suboxone/hydrocodone equivocal
Hi,Ive recently began suboxone treatment @ (8mg/2mg) twice daily,today is my 3rd day. My question is straightforward,how many mgs of suboxone is "considered" closely equal to only 80 mg of hydrocodone? Am simply trying very hard to get my dose correct,seems doctor overmedicated me during induction. I would greatly appreciate any feedback,thanks & best wishes to everyone. ## Hello, Staci! How are you? There really is no direct conversion, but the rough one that's usually used is 1.2mgs of the Buprenorphine to each 30mgs of Hydrocodone, but the person's overall tolerance to narcotics must be factored in, along with the fact that the Suboxone is dosed once a day, where the other was taken several times a day. So, that's probably why you were given the 8/2 dosage. Ha... ...

clonazepam 0 5 with suboxone 8 mil
Can you take these 2 together to sleep with out the withdraw feeling I am trying to get over. ## Hello, Brook! How are you? Yes, they can be taken together, as long as your doctor has approved it. The Naloxone in the Suboxone only neutralizes opiates. They both carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi I'm Kris I'm new in the neighborhood! I wanted to ask can you have withdrawals from xanx? ...

Dismissed from suboxone program
I don't see why it would be a big deal if I had taken subs with another doctor, I can't imagine I'm the only one that has relapsed and been dismissed before. This time I truly feel like I'm ready to quit and move on with my life. Does anyone know If i should disclose the suboxone treatment I had a few months ago??? I don't want to get kicked out of this office for not telling them the truth, but if they have no way of knowing what kind of treatment I've had in the past I would rather them not know. What should I do??? Is there a paper trail they can look at, or can my insurance blow the whistle on me? ## What is the point of wasting other people's time if your not ready to get honest. If your not being honest, your not ready, so stay home and keep playing gam... ...

Dismissed from suboxone program
Hello all, I need some advice. I was kicked out of my first program 4 months ago. I'm ready to get back on the subs again, but I'm not sure if I need to tell my new doctor that I have taken them before. I live in Colorado and I'm not sure if they will ask if I've ever taken suboxone before or if I'm in some sort of data base. Should I just tell him the truth that I relapsed my first time, or should i just keep it to myself? ## Yes, you are in a database! All narcotic prescriptions are logged and reported to the federal government, a simple search will allow them to pull up your name and information very quickly. So yes you do have to tell them, otherwise you will end up dismissed from another program. Just be honest and tell them exactly what happened. Please post ba... ...

does suboxone help with body pains?
My friend has been clean for like 9 days now and her doctor prescribed her suboxone after she said her body hurt? Is that the reason? Cause I would love to know... ## Suboxone is prescribed for pain in other countries but here in the states as far as I know it,s only prescribed to treat opiate addiction. The pain your friend is feeling could be from withdrawal. Maybe your friend has other pain issues and also has a pain pill problem and the patient and doctor decided to start suboxone treatment. I,m taking sub for addiction but also have pain issues. the subs help for both problems. Some folks say that subs don,t help there pain at all. I can only say what works for me. ## Dear Kayla, as Jolter said," the pain could b due 2 withdrawals". I'm on suboxone and I suffer from man... ...

multple miscarriages on suboxone
33 year old female with first 4 pregnancys healthy babies..then put on suboxone and have had 5 is not very educated and would not put me on subutex...anybody else heard of naloxone causing multiple miscarriage? ## Hello, Roxanne! Sorry about the miscarriages, that's so sad. Neither the Buprenorphine or the Naloxone in Suboxone have been shown to cause harm to the fetus, but they haven't been shown to be safe, either. Learn more Suboxone details here. From what I'm reading the only reason a pregnant women is usually switch to Subutex is to just lessen the possible risks, if any, by only exposing the baby to one medication, rather than 2. Have you considered seeing a different doctor? If this one isn't helping and you've had 5 miscarriages while t... ...

Suboxone From Nurse Practitioner
I started taking Suboxone two years ago and it has been a very positive experience, I'm off the hydrocodone, tapering off Suboxone successfully, and it also saved my marriage. My husband and I recently moved to a different state, so I had to leave my very wonderful Suboxone doctor (an addiction specialist for 30 years). The Suboxone doctor I found in our new state has both a PA (Physician's Assistant) and a Nurse Practitioner who see patients. When I made my first appointment, I was surprised that it was with the PA and not the doctor. I was even more surprised to see the PA for my next 3 appointments, but the big shock came when I began seeing the Nurse Practitioner! In nine months, I saw the PA 4 times and the NP 5 times. I HAVE NEVER EVEN MET THE DOCTOR. When I scheduled thes... ...

Suboxone And Fentyal Patch
I have chronic back pain from a sports injury several years ago. Since the suboxone tablets are being discontinued and my doctor cannot subscribe the medication for pain management any longer, he wants me to switch to fentanyl patches. My doctor is also unable to subscribe suboxone film which is replacing the tablets. How do you switch from suboxone to fentanyl patches, when suboxone blocks all opiates? Do you just stop one medication then start another one? Do you have to get off suboxone then start taking fentanyl? ## Yes, the Naloxone in the Suboxone can neutralize other opiates, so you'd have to stop taking it for several days, then start the new medication. Learn more Fentanyl details here. What type of doctor are you seeing? ...

(Heavy duty). I m just so scared if I got off that I would b back at a pain management addicted, again. Due 2 my severe pain from many medical problems. And, I DONT ever want 2 b in that situation, again! I'm sure a lot of u people understand that. Thanks 4 you're input. ## P.S. I lost my train of thought a bit, there. Meant 2 ask if anyone has heard of being on suboxone for years or life? ## My sub doctor said that I might have to stay on suboxone for life. I disagree with him. Suboxone is solely used for getting off of opiates, and other reasons. That way you won't go throug... ...
