medicaid la suboxone rx limits

I heard from a friend that Louisiana Medicaid is putting a limit on the amount of time it will pay/cover Suboxone prescriptions. I would like to know if this is true. ## Hello, Crystal! How are you? I don't know all the specifics, but many states are putting limits on it, such as only paying for it for one year. 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? ## Max daily dosage of up to 24 mg a day for 90 consecutive days. After the 90 days a max of 16 mg a day dosage. Louisisna Medicaid has extended the allowed time to refill non controlled substances to 12 month. But, this does not apply to Suboxone. ## Im on LA med... ...

Stomach Discomfort On Suboxone
2 Replies RSS
I've been taking many Oxy 80's daily for the past 2 years. I am on 8mg sub film 2x daily. I still experienced precipitated withdrawls and I waited 54 hours before I started with the subs. It's now 2 days later and I feel very bloated. In addition it feels like I have butterflies in my stomach. It's very uncomfortable. Has anyone experienced this and if so what did you do and how long does it last. Thanks for the advice and best of luck to all. ## Based on my research, stomach pain (upset stomach); constipation; euphoria; feelings of depersonalization; & feeling light-headed; are the closest Suboxone-related side effects I'm finding to the symptoms mentioned in your description. Do any of these sound like what you may be going through? I also went ahead and posted... ...

Suboxone Too Strong...need advice
7 Replies RSS
I have been prescribed Vicodin for the last 7 years by the same Dr for a back injury that occurred when I was struck by a car. I recently (three weeks ago) decided that I wanted to stop taking the Vicodin because I saw myself taking too many to get the pain to go away. So at that time I began to taper off the pills and made an appointment with a psychiatrist that could prescribe Suboxone if that was the final decision because I was very afraid of withdrawals. (Back up a little in the story) about four months ago I was taking approx 8-10 Vicodin a day and when I tapered off I was down to two a day and had been for about 2-3 weeks. So when I talked to the psychiatrist he prescribed 4mg (or a half of a tablet) twice a day. I waited until I began feeling some withdrawals and I took the Subo... ...

Length of time on suboxone?
2 Replies RSS
Hello everyone! I've was a pain pill addict for almost 11 years. I had many of surgeries and have a lot of medical problems. I was put on the pain pills due to my severe pain. And, became addicted. Went on methadone to get clean. I was so sick of being an addict. I was on 110mg and weaned down to 24mg. At that point, I was withdrawing so bad. 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. I had come so far down off the meth. That I didn't want to stay on it. Anyway , I went on subs. That day. I take 24 mg a day. I'm also on. 3mg a day of klonopin due to PTSD and anxiety. So happy where my life is today. I've been on subs for almost 8 years now . I know if... ...

suboxone/hydrocodone equivocal
1 Reply RSS
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... ...

how long will suboxone keep their potentsy if they are expired
2 Replies RSS
I have sublingual strips that have been expired for about a month now are they still good? ## They should be fine, especially if they are still sealed in the package. ## @Adrian, Midiman is right... they should be fine since the expiration date wasn't too long ago. Harvard Medical School did a study stating that many medications like this can actually retain their potency for up to 10 to 15 years beyond their expiration date. The shelf life of Suboxone may be listed as 3 years, but I think it's been proven to retain its potency much longer under proper storage conditions. I hope this helps! ...

Generic Suboxone Sl 8 Mg Price
3 Replies RSS
what is the price on the new generic suboxone sl 8 mg /2 mg per tablet? As I don't have insurance & have to buy them separate or a few at a time. ## This website does not manufacture, prescribe nor sell any medications, it is an information only website. That said, the price will vary from area to area, from pharmacy to pharmacy and according to how many you are buying. In most cases it is cheaper to buy a month's worth, as the individual price goes up if you buy lower amounts. Learn more Suboxone details here. Have you asked your local pharmacies for price quotes? ## In regards to people asking about generic Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone). It seems that the tablets cost more than the name brand strips.

Is suboxone as hard to get off as methadone?
2 Replies RSS
Hi everyone! I was wondering if suboxone is as hard 2 get off as methadone? I was on 110 of methadone 4 almost 5 years, after many years of Oxy abuse. Got down 2 (24) and the withdrawals were so bad, and, the cravings came back. Dr put me on suboxone, which works great. I've been on 3 (8 mg) a day 4 almost 8 years now. I'm scared 2 death 2 get off. I suffer with a lot of pain, too. The suboxone helps some. What with it. I'm also afraid of the bad withdrawals, and returning back 2 pain pills. Any advise will b helpful. ## Hi Cats, You definately can get off subs it just takes time. Why not cut down just a couple of mgs and see how it goes. Instead of 8 three times a day you could try 8 than 6 than 8. If you feel allright after a week or so try dropping another 2. Theres no se... ...

restricted pupils on 2mg suboxone
4 Replies RSS
Hi it would be of great help to me if any suboxone users could help me out by answering my question. Would 2mg of suboxone restrict your pupils. My partner has been using 2mg of suboxone for some time now and his pupils are always very restricted which puzzles the life out of me and in turn causing massive problems in our relationship. I'm convinced he must be using "other stuff" to make his pupils this small. Would 2mg of suboxone cause this. With many thx to any1 who would be kind enough to reply. Thank u. ## Hi, Ann! How are you? Yes, Suboxone actually contains 2 active ingredients, Buprenorphine and Naloxone. The Buprenorphine is a very potent narcotic opiate, so it can cause that in some people that take it, just as other opiates can. Learn more Suboxone details here. A... ...

what exactly does suboxone do? is it addicitive?
254 Replies RSS
i have a friend who desperately wants to get off of methadone and pain pills. will suboxone work? is it addicitive too? if someone can please help me that would be great! also is it very expensive, that's what i've heard. ## Well, first off, yes, it can be addictive as well, however, it has distince advantages over narcotic meds, Benzos, and even Methadone. Suboxone works on many of the same receptors, since it is a narcotic agent, however, it does not give the same high effect and euphoria that most addicts enjoyed, which is what made them get addicted in the first place. It also contains an opiate neutralizer, so it neutralizes anything in your system from the other drugs you were using, and of course prevents someone from continuing to use while they are on it. Most people wh... ...

I Am On Methodone Maint Now Want To Maintain Suboxan Can And How
1 Reply RSS
i am taking 70 mg. methodone daily. i have been clean many years. going to meth. clinic interferes with my job. is there a place that dispenses suboxon. ## You can check Suboxone.com to see if there is a doctor in your area that provides Suboxone treatment. The way it works though, might cause you some problems. You do have to be in full withdrawal, before you can start Suboxone, because it contains both Buprenorphine and Naloxone, so the Naloxone can throw you into severe withdrawals, if you take it too soon. From what I understand, some of them do give take-home prescriptions, but it depends on the doctor's policies and the laws in your state. You can learn more about the medication here: Are there any other comments or questions? ...

My husband has had many back surgeries and procedures - he has taken 200 dalotid in 7 days - he has od'ed on morphien - he went on suboxen for 6 weeks - all was going pretty good - then he started saying he was in pain - then the suboxen wasn't helping - he never was addicted (8 years on opiods) he has a high tolerance - now he stopped the suboxen - and came home with a bag of pills - how do you handle pain without the opiods? ## There are several options, however, they all depend on his medical condition and what it causing his back pain. He could try seeing a chiropractor, massage, relaxation techniques and etc. But as I said, it really depends on what is going to be safe for him to try.
