Methadone verses Suboxone
3 Replies RSS
Hello, everyone! I've heard stories about how some people stay on methadone 4 many years 2 life. Does anyone know if this is true? I've been on subs 4 almost 8 years. And, i was addicted 2 Oxy. (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... ...

switching from suboxone to norco

Been on suboxone for 4 1/2 for oxy addiction. Funny enough I now have lupus. Doc put me on norco even though I said I on subs by different dr. He said switch should be fine but im taking twice recommended amount to ward off w/ds. 3 days in and wondering how long I will icky?? ## I switched from around 20 mg of suboxone to to 6 10 mg norcos a day about 25 days ago. I was on the suboxone for about 6 months. And even after 25 days I still cannot sleep, I go through withdrawels at night and the norcos still do not work as good as they should. I am also wondering how much longer it is going to take for my body to get back to normal-my opiate receptors to be completely open and to start sleeping. This had made many negative effects on my life the last few weeks. My new doctor also prescribed ... ...

If you do go on Methadone, plan on being on it for many years or life. Suboxone is the best way to go. Monthly supply. Methadone, you have to go every day and earn take homes. I'm lucky to be alive because of Methadone. Very addicting, can't even go 1 day without it. Its just a money making legal way to sell hard core narcotics. Good luck whatever you choose.

I'm taking a sixth of the 2mg strip of suboxone.i want to know if i can take anything to help with the future tapering im gonna do. Been on a 6th sub for about 4 months now ## I also been on for 2 years ## Hello, Petra! How are you? What has your doctor advised? In many cases, they prefer to just taper it very slowly to prevent withdrawal symptoms, rather than have to prescribe more medications to treat them. Unlike Methadone, many people do manage to taper off of this one successfully and become completely drug free. The FDA lists this medication as being 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. ...

Withdrawl From Opiates And Using Suboxone
11 Replies RSS
I've been abusing vicodin and percocet for over 7 years. I'm fed up with it all, but terrified BEYOND TERRIFIED of telling my doctor about it, for fear of losing my kids. I turned to a friend who takes Suboxone and she is helping me enormously......I'm on day 4 of only 4 mg per day. Anyone know if I go through the "proper channels" if I will lose my kids over this? I'd much rather be doing it under a doctor's care, but my friend helping me was pretty blunt and said that she had to LIE about the amount she was taking in order to get help in the first place. I've tried cold turkey many times and got scared to death when it lasted for more than a week...normally withdrawals were only lasting me a few days. I'm in over my head, and trying everything in my... ...

My daughter has been on suboxone for 4 years her Dr got arrested need her to find a dr ## Have her sign up at NAABT.ORG, it's a dr match site for this. Yeah, Dr Ley and DORN associates were good, but the DEA shouldn't have dismantled their operation w/o providing a list of doctors. Now the DEA has our records, so many can't find anyone to even take them. He and the DEA are to blame for this. Not us, who go to counseling, take our drug panels, work, doing everything right and then BAM! Nothing for us. ## yep, same here!

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? ...

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.

I was on the generic suboxone pill the round orange AN 415 tablet when I went to pick up my remaining partial perscription I saw that the pharmacist handed me a completely different pill it was the new pink/peach 54/375 tablet I immediately questioned this pill wondering if in fact it would be as good! Well I took the first one tonight and I feel they work much better for me I agree with many others on this forum it's all mainly the way the body metabolizes it in my opinion it's like different strokes for different folks! ## Glad to hear that this newer tablet is working well for you. I know it can often times be a gamble when you go to the pharmacy frequently and expect to get the same thing every single time, only to be given what's left in the shuffle.

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! ...

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.

I need a Suboxone Dr. in the Huntsville/Madison, AL area asap. I am already on suboxone, but it looks like my doctor may be leaving the area and I really don't want to go to a random Dr. just to find out he's awful.
