Thinking about getting off suboxone
1 Reply RSS
I had as bad a opiate habit as I have ever heard of from anyone until six years ago. During my final days, I was taking 12+ 80 mg Oxycontin a day. That's right, a day. that's the equivalent of 180 regular 5 mg Percocets a day when I finally OD'd on Christmas day. I was a 55+ yr old professional, married for 32 yrs, with 3 adult children. Sadly, they were prescribed by my Doctor. It's unbelievable now that I think back on it. Started out 1 perc 5 mg at a time 30 yrs earlier for my back. Loved them and kept it up until BOOM. Anyway, I tried many times to get off, but when I OD'd it was definitely time to succeed and I started on Suboxone 8/2mgs 3 times a day and have been on them for 6 years. I got my life back and it has been pretty normal since(if any life is normal)... ...

Can Suboxone Be Used To Help Stop Using Marijuana and drugs
3 Replies RSS
Marijuana mixed with can I help my son to stop with this addiction ## Yes..depending on the drug...never heard of sub's for marijuana only severe addictions to opiate pain killers...ozycontin, vicodin, Percocet, opana so on.... Sub's saved my life... Good luck ## Subs saved your life? What were you using and are you now off subs? I have been on them for 5 years only because I cannot withdraw from them without severe withdrawal symptoms. ## Depending on how old, you can do many things. Inpatient rehab will mess up a child's life trust me. So will an ass whoopin. I'd go with ass whooping first, then try impatient treatment. But I doubt you can do anything that would help unless you moved to the middle of the woods were substances are no were to be seen. ...

oxycodone after suboxone
1 Reply RSS
I am prescribed suboxone to take 4mg a day for the past 6 months, but I have been taking suboxone on n off for several years and want to know if getting on oxy's would help get me off suboxone? And if I took the oxy 20mg after 24 hours would I feel its effects? ## No, you'd really just trade one addiction for another. Suboxone is the addiction treatment of choice, because it actually enables many people to become drug free. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. 24 hours is also not long enough for other narcotics to have any effects. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

took hydrocodone 16 hours ago no opiate withdrawals when can i take suboxone
2 Replies RSS
Been on suboxones for over a year. I stopped taking them for a week because of some dental work. I was in so much pain needing a root canal and I realized that no matter how many hydrocodones I took, it did nothing for pain. I am thinking it's because I've been on suboxones. Anyway, I want to start back on suboxones, but I am nervous to when to start taking them. The last time I took hydrocodone was about 17 hours ago. I do not feel any withdrawal symptoms from stopping them. When would I be safe to take my suboxone? ## Hello, Ricsgirl! How are you? Suboxone actually contains 2 ingredients, the opiate Buprenorphine and Naloxone, which neutralizes other opiates to help prevent their abuse, while someone is under treatment with it. The Naloxone is most likely why the Hydrocodone d... ...

I Recommend Suboxone

For all of you that are taking and abusing opiates.. Simply put cut the sh*t and get on a suboxone program.. It works but you have to want to quit taking drugs.. Yes suboxone is addictive more physically than mentally but this pales compared to your current 12-25 pills per day habit. I have been on suboxone for 2 years and I tried to ween off of them but it's very difficult.. Stop making excuses... ## Thank you for posting your experience and advice. Suboxone has helped many people with addiction problems to finally become drug free. Please keep us update on how you're doing! ...

I am in transition from methadone to suboxone today. I am waiting for the WD's so I can take my first suboxone strip. I want to wait as long as possible and take as little as necessary... Where can I get advice on the internet? chat rooms? I am very eager to stop all opiate related meds. If I wanted to stop very soon and quick what are my options? I have a new doctor for the suboxone but I don't feel like I can burden him with all the questions I have. Thanks all! ## is it something i said? ## Your doctor should have let you know what dose to start with, it has to be calculated according to how much of the Methadone you were taking. Doctors that treat with it are specially trained to do this and such information actually isn't available to the public, so others can't pro... ...

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... ...

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 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. ...

The right amount can vary from person to person, depending on the drug they were abusing and how much of it they were taking. The highest recommended dosage is 32/8mgs daily.

50 mcg fentanyl with suboxone

Can you take 50 mcg fentanyl with suboxone? Any replies from anyone please get back to me. Thanks. ## Hello, Baconbob! How are you? The active ingredients in Suboxone can also prevent Fentanyl from working as well, just as it does for other opiates, so you should mix them, unless your doctor has specifically told you it's okay to try it. The FDA classifies this medication as 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? ## Also, can I cut the patch in half?? ## Suboxone does not block fentanyl. Fentanyl is to strong and knocks the suboxone off the receptors, I have done this many times. Just have to be careful not to overdose. The... ...

suboxone, subutex and opiates
1 Reply RSS
This is simple. I've been on suboxone for five years. I'm clean. I took opiates for thirty years. Methadone was the kinky way out and frankly doesn't work for the same reason subutex rarely works. You can still take opiates on top of both. Suboxone has a blocker. It is easy knowing you can't feel high. I still go to therapy and meetings. Beats being deaf. Good luck. ## Hello, Anfy! How are you? Actually, Subutex can still block other opiates from working, so many people do have good luck with it. It contains the active ingredient Buprenorphine, which tends to cling to the opiate receptors in the brain much stronger than most other opiates, so it can also cause precipitated withdrawal, if someone has been taking any recently. The FDA classifies it as an opiate that is mos... ...

Strange Suboxone withdrawal
3 Replies RSS
Okay. So I have been on Suboxone for about a year and I am just fed up. In my opinion (and I'm sure many others) my doctor is doing it for the money and is not very well read. I have been stuck at 8 mg. sometimes I drop down to 7 but it varies. I have an incredibly fast metabolism. I can't break 100 lbs, I eat constantly, and I'm 22. I go into withdrawal very fast. I have gone through w/d plenty of times. The worst was the last time, when I kicked my opiate habit cold turkey in detox. I refused meds and just went through the motions. It was horrible but over fast. When I have kicked Suboxone, I tend to feel better after three days. But that's just me. I usually get all the normal w/d symptoms with insomnia and rls being the worst. This time is different though. I'm g... ...

Withdrawl From Opiates And Using Suboxone

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 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.
