how does methadone compare to suboxone
Post a Reply
I take suboxone. I'm really trying to be 100% clean. I ran out of suboxone early and took 3 10mg methadone pills. I have never taken them before. I don't know if I should let them dissolve or how the mgs compare to a suboxone. I'm not looking to feel high. Just trying to end this disaster I got myself into. If anyone knows about these could you please offer advice? ...

how long after taking a lortab should I wait to take my suboxone

Help! I've been on suboxone for 3 years and havent really had any relapses, especially in the last year. I have the flu of death currently and couldn't resist my mom offering me two of her lortab 10 mgs. That was about 12 hours ago. I can't tell if I'm having wds or not, honestly the pills didn't even help that much, and I'd like to take my sub asap. BUT since its my last one until the insurance prior authorization goes through, tomorrow or the next day, I'm only going to be able to take half my dose of suboxone. How long do I have to wait for wds to usually start? Like I said it didn't even feel like the lortab did anything ## Thought this made more sense :( it meant to say that I can't tell if what I'm having Is wds because I have had the worst ... ...

I took a suboxone 8mg and I have some serious pain. Will vicodin work on the pain or not? I am not looking to feel high, this pain is horrible. ## Hi Cheryl, Sorry to hear about your challenges with pain. From what I'm reading in other related discussion threads here, the general consensus I've gathered is that most patients recommend waiting an estimated 48 to 72 hours to reap the full effectiveness of their pain meds after Suboxone. This is in part due to Buprenorphine's long half life of 24-60 hours (est.), which has a higher affinity than other opioids on your receptors. I hope this helps! ...

Suboxone doesn't last long with huge tolerance
3 Replies RSS
So I'm 30 years old. I have been taking various pain medications in very large doses for 15 years. I once ate 42 10/set hydro in one day. I was not worried about overdose on hydro, just acetaminophen. So I have a brain full of opiate receptors. From what I have read the longer and larger your tolerance well what happens is your brain builds more opiate receptors. So this is how high my tolerance is. I can take 36mg of Suboxone and the next morning at about noon take a couple hundred mg of morphine and feel full effects. So even though buprenorphine is so many times different in potency to morphine, the fact that it does not activate receptors but partially must play a major role in how Suboxone works with super highly tolerant patients. I believe my receptors saturation level may be... ...

I took 60 mgs of methadone sat morn at 8 am.. today is monday 4 pm , am I ok to take 4 mgs of suboxone today.?.. ## It really depends on how long you have been on the methadone and the dose you are at. If your only dose was 60mgs of done sat morning and you haven't take any done before or after that I say your good. If you take 60 everyday you may want to wait day or two more. better safe than sorry...and you will be sorry. ## I took about 15 mgs of methadone for 4 days then just 5 mgs this morning at 8:30am.. Am I safe to take 2 mgs of suboxone now only being 6 hrs? I feel sick with withdrawal symptoms now anyway.. ## Jdub, NO ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! Unless you want to endure precipitated withdrawal syndrome. You must wait at least 72 to 96 hours MINIMUM to safely transition to sub. ...

how long after you take suboxone can a pain pill be felt

Someone I know took one sliver of a suboxone, but had never taken it before. It was to help them get through a day without pain meds. How long till they can take a 30mg dose of regular medication for pain relief? ## Hello, Nickels! How are you? About 72 hours, due to the Naloxone in the Suboxone, it takes that long for it to stop blocking other opiates. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, 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? ## Where can I get only 2, @ 8.2 mg of sub's until I see my doctor tomorrow Tue evening!! I forgot (3) in hotel & left forgetting them started to panic. Can feel WD coming on right now 1 day without. I hat... ...

I have been on 8 mg/2mg Suboxone strips for 1 year. I am having a tooth (back molar) extraction in the morning. I used my Suboxone strip this morning & the tooth extraction is at 9:30 am tomorrow. If I don't use another Suboxone strip before the extraction, would I be able to take Hydrocodone after my surgery? I don't want to get sick, but I am terrified of going through this surgery with no pain meds. Please help. ## should be 48 hrs to alow to leave your system ## So if I took a 10 mg Hydrocodone after not taking a Suboxone for 24-28 hours, will it throw me into withdrawals? That would do me in after surgery to end up in wd's. ## Sorry to say but 8 mg of Suboxone is way stronger then any hydrocodone. It would take a year for you to even feel the effects.

Took a 1/4th of 8mg/2mg suboxone. how long till i can take a pain killer

I took a 1/4th of 8/2mg suboxone this morning, then in the afternoon, then at 5. I get my hydrocodone 10mg tomorrow. will they do me any good. It was my first time taking suboxone and i have a really fast metabolism. I am wondering will I be able to feel my pain killers tomorrow? ## @stageman, Because everyone is different this is only intended to be an estimate...but according to other related threads on here, I've drawn the opinion that you may want to wait a good 48 hours before taking other narcotics such as hydrocodone. However there are a variety of factors/questions that come into play which could also determine how long you should wait, including but not limited to: How long you've been on suboxone? What dose you've been taking regularly? Was this a one time thing? D... ...

has anyone had good results on soboxone ## I have. I was addicted to pain meds for years stemming from a knee injury in college. When I finally told my doctor about all the extra pills I would take, i.e. buying them on the street, he advised me to try suboxone. I did, and I started at a higher dose, and it's fairly easy to taper the dose down in the beginning, just make sure you do it with your doc's help and let him/her know how you are feeling, physically. It is a little harder when you start going down from 2 mgs a day to 1, then 1/2 then a 1/4, and so forth. I've had more sucess taking half my dose in the morning and half in the evening, that could easily be psychological though. Anyhow, it is possible for this treatment to work, just don't try to wean yourself off t... ...

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... ...

has anyone come down from suboxone slowly with no ill effect. ## yes ,i was on 115 mgs of methadone @ swithed to suboxone,it was much easier to ween down from sub than methadone,i'm on 4mgs,down from 16 mgs,it's a good treatment and you must ween down slowly,2mgs every 2 weeks,no sickness,that wasn't the case with methadone. ## Suboxone is very popular for this very reason, a slow taper makes it much easier to get off and stay off drugs. ## i am down to one suboxone a day now after being on three for about 6 months...i cannot afford it anymore so i plan to be weened on in a month or so...should i split my films in half for 2 weeks then to 1/4 ? will that help with withdrawal symptoms....i am scared of the symptons cause i work and go to school and do not want to be or feel s... ...

suboxone sublingual film/ How long?
2 Replies RSS
I took about 1/4 of a suboxone 8mg film at about 8:30 this morning. Of I take a 30mg roxy at 10:30 tonight, will I feel it or will it be a waisted. ## Yes, it will. You should give it at least 48 hrs after your last Sub. I know..I tried. I wasted 8 15 mg. oxys because I couldn't wait! Hope this helps! ## Other reports here on the account of personal experience suggest that one only needs to wait a minimum of 12-24 hours in order to feel effects from opiates after suboxone. My assumption is that these figures are probably based on how often you take suboxone and how much you typically take when you do take it. So all I'm reiterating here is that there's no specific waiting period that'll work for each and every individual. One should probably use their own best judgement ... ...

Hi, I started suboxone yesterday after being on methadone for 3 and half years. I went from 85ml to 30ml.

I've been taking per 30's. (Not proud) I took 8 mg suboxone 2 days in a row last dose 31 hrs ago. Will I feel full effects off 100 mg methadone. I usually take that once a week. Don't want it to be a waste. ## Hi Jewel, Because everyone's individual wait period tends to vary based on a variety of different factors, I would encourage you to contact your prescribing doctor about this; especially since s/he should've voluntarily provided you with this information upon prescribing the methadone. Just to add though, my findings suggest that 72hrs seems to be a commonly agreed upon window of time for waiting in between taking suboxone and methadone, in order to feel its full effects. Many people in other related threads here have also reported only having to wait 48hrs. I ... ...

I took about 1/3 of a 8mg suboxone at around 9 this morning and it is around 4pm now and i am still feeling dizzy and naucious. Is this normal or did i take too little of a dose. ## The proper Suboxone dosage really depends on the drug you were taking and how much of it you were taking, so it can vary from person to person. Learn more Suboxone details here. What dosage have you been told to take by your doctor? You may have taken too low of a dose, but like I said, it depends on how much you were taking of the drug you were on. Did you wait until you were in full withdrawal before taking it? ## I just started sub's (1, 2mg) yesterday for oxy addiction. I slept well, woke up with no W/D symptoms. I feel very dizzy, normal ?

I started using the strips of suboxone a few months back.. But I find they don't hold me over as long as the pills did. ( I take the strips because I have a free co pay from the company) Especially when you have to split one in half. So the do to put me up back to 2 and 1/2 instead of 1 and 1/2.. Just incase so my new doctors says anyways.. Since he put my dose up instead of it being 45 a month now it's 75 a month.. But I got every two weeks now, my last fill was 1/15/14 and because it's a new doctor I had to go 2/4/14 how soon can I fill this new script?? ## " So the do to put me up back to 2 and 1/2 instead of 1 and 1/2.."

How long to wait from Opana ER 40 mg to Suboxone film
13 Replies RSS
I'm quiting Opana using Suboxone. I've gradually come down from Opana ER 40 mg to 10 mg over a period of 6 months, and am switching today to Suboxone film. Dr told me to wait 24 to 36 hrs before starting Subs (wait till I can't stand the withdrawals any longer). Normally on 10 mg Opana I start to feel withdrawals within 12 hrs, can't get comfortable in my skin, can't sleep, restless leg etc. Problem is I ran out of 10 mg yesterday so the single last Opana I took was an ER 40 mg. It's been 30 hrs and still no noticable withdrawals. I don't want to start the Suboxone until feeling the withdrawals as instructed cause I don't want the Subs to kick in and suddenly block the Opana causing worse withdrawals. How long should I wait? ## There is really no precise ... ...

I'M GOING TO MAKE THIS VERY CLEAR, DO NOT TAKE SUBS UNTIL YOU'RE FEELING EVERYONE OF THE WD SYMPTOMS. MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN PRESCRIBED OPIATES FOR ALMOST TEN YEARS W/ MORPHINE ER 60MG 2*PER DAY EACH for 4 years but I WISH THE DR N PHARMACY WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE DEMANDING AND STRESS TO WAIT TIL YOU'RE IN FULL WD BEFORE TAKING SUBS AND THEY DIDN'T SAY AT ALL THAT MORPHINE IS THE WORST CUZ IT BINDS TO YOUR RECEPTORS LONG-TERM. SO JUST TO WARN ANYBODY THAT IS GOING TO TRANSITION FROM MORPHINE TO SUBOXONE 8MG STRIPS' I STRONGLY URGE YOU TO WAIT TIL U FEEL EVERY SYMPTOM CUZ IT PUT US IN FULL WD WITHIN 30 min AND WE WAITED 24HRS BEFORE TAKING ONE STRIP!!
