Your strips may be from a differant maufacturer. The pharmacist would know whats going on. Call the store you got them from. If you do would you let us know what he said in case someone else runs into these smaller ones. ## I will call my pharmacy & ask if they got them from a different manufactorer & let u know what they say...yesss the strips DO NOT LAST ME AS LONG AS THE PILLS DID but they quit making the namebrand Suboxone pills..I didnt like the generic pills so I use the strips now. ...

Suboxone Strips too small now
3 Replies RSS
My Suboxone Strips are straight from the pharmacy so they have never been opened but they are "alot smaller" now and Iam mad but I dont know how to ask Suboxone pharmacy would think Im crazy probly so hhmmm? ## The size doesn't necessarily mean anything in regards to the amount of medication that they contain. There are likely just different fillers or a different manufacturing method being used. Do they still work the same for you? 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. ## Havn,t noticed any difference in size yet. I would like for them to be smaller. Maybe they would desolve faster. The one problem I see with smaller ones is th... ...

It's been proven scientifically and medically that some people are born with a genetic predisposition to have addictive tendencies. Learn more Suboxone details here. They can fight it, of course, if they are aware that they are prone to it, or know that it tends to run in their immediate family, but it is never easy. Almost anything they take, even substances that aren't known to be addictive and habit forming, may cause problems for these types... ...

suboxone strips vs pills
2 Replies RSS
Maybe im crazy but i don't like the strips, i just don't feel they work as well as the pills. I never ran short with the pills, but the strips i seem to take more. Anyone else feel this way? My dr said she'll only prescribe the strips and it's all in my head. ## Hello, Terisita! How are you? You're not the only one that has said this, it just seems that different formulations work better for different people. However, if you stuck with the strips at the amount you're supposed to take, then your body would likely adjust after a week or so. The only other suggestion I can make if you're not happy is that you try to find a different doctor. Does anyone else have any suggestions? ## Hi, I,m the other way around. I like the strips better then the pills I agree wit... ...

take subutex and suboxone together
15 Replies RSS
I ran out of subutex last night can I take suboxone today ## Hi Ash, Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Subutex and Suboxone. So with that being said, I wouldn't anticipate having any problems when switching between one or the other. Also, because Subutex contains the same active ingredient "Buprenorphine", taking the two meds together or within a short a time frame of one another would also be similar to just having an higher dose of Suboxone. Is your doctor also aware that you're taking both medications? ## Have only four 8 strips Suboxone to last until January 21st! I currently take 12 mgs day. Reason Im short? They were stolen and I can't turn the person in as he is family. I have no concrete proof. anyway, I've be on this for... ...

how long does suboxone
3 Replies RSS
how long does suboxone block diazepam elavil & lexapro. ## Hello, Silver Fox2! How are you? It does not block those medications. Suboxone contains Buprenorphine and Naloxone, the Naloxone only blocks the effects of other opiates to prevent their abuse, while someone is being treated with it and the Buprenorphine takes their place on the opiate receptors in the brain. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I took 2 8 mlg strips rhis morning I got months ago incase I ran out and I went to the doctor the other day and he prescribed me 1... ...

suboxone strips therapeutic levels
1 Reply RSS
What are considered therapeutic levels for driving under the influence? My boyfriend is prescribed 16mg a day but only take a total of 2 mg -4 mg daily because he just wants to feel Normal and doesn't want to b fully dependant on it. ## Hi Tammy, How long has your boyfriend been on Suboxone for? Based on what I've read, Suboxone shouldn't impair your driving ability at all once you're used to its effects. Apparently though, they can still charge him with a DUI if for any reason he were to get himself pulled over. So as long as he's responsible about it, he may be fine with the amount he's choosing to take now. However, only through trial and error will he truly know what dosage allows him to be fully functional and without impaired judgment. I hope this helps! ...

Does anyone feel the suboxone strips suck???

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.." So confusing? "Since he put my dose up instead of it being 45 a month now it's 75 a month" Wow! Their is really no benefit to this. ... ...

is it safe to take suboxone with cephalexin
1 Reply RSS
I'm prescribed cephalexin for a UTI and want to start taking my suboxone strips to help with my H withdrawals. Is it safe to take the two together? ## Hi Shamana, Looking at's drug interaction checker, I didn't see any discrepancies listed between Suboxone (buprenorphine + naloxone) and Cephalexin. So based off that information alone, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to take the two together, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. Also, as long as it was the same doctor who prescribed both meds, I think it's highly unlikely that he/she would give you two things that couldn't be used at the same time. Although it never hurts to double check just to be on the safe side! I hope this helps! ...

My Suboxone Strips are straight from the pharmacy so they have never been opened but they are "alot smaller" now and Iam mad but I dont know how to ask Suboxone pharmacy would think I'm crazy probably so any thoughts? ## It just depends on what fillers and excipients they use in them, there is no specific size that they must be, as long as they contain the full dose they are supposed to. The size itself really means nothing. 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? ## Why did you go all pharmacy tech on us at the end there? Not helpful at all! In fact you didn't really have anything usefu... ...

Generic suboxone pills vs brand name strips
3 Replies RSS
I was started on Suboxone strips and paid out of pocket first week. Found out that ins will pay for Suboxone but I have to start with the pills and a pre-auth. So I pick up the generic pills, same dose as strips were and they aren't nearly as strong... Feeling a lot of cravings and w/d's and needed to take more to keep them at bay. The only way ins will pay for strips is if I have some sort of problem taking the pills.... What can I say to the Dr so he will switch my pre-auth to the strips? Called pharmacy and he said if you go from strips to pills you may need to increase your dose by 35% to get the results as you got from strips... Can anyone please help? ## Hi. The answer to ur question: what kind of insurance do u have? I know most ins including Medicaid will pay for strips ... ...

how long after taking a percocet can i take suboxone
6 Replies RSS
I'm trying to detox off opiates. I have taken 10 percocet 7.5's in the last 14 hrs to help with withdrawals. I intend on taking some subutex strips & my last dose of percocet was 2 hrs ago. Should I take one of the strips soon or wait? ## Hello, Julz! How are you? No, you need to be in full withdrawal from the Percocet, before taking Suboxone, otherwise it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA classifies these medications as being narcotic analgesics, so they have the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. When did your doctor tell you to start it? ## Hi I know this doesn't really apply to your post much but I had a quick question. I took Vicodin this morning ab... ...
