suboxone / methadone
3 Replies RSS
What is the difference between suboxone and methadone ## The active ingredients are very different, though both are opiate based and are used to treat severe pain as well as addiction. ## Dear Comments Submitted, Verwon is right, they r both opiate based. But the methadone helps much better with pain. (Believe me) I've been on both. After almost 5 years on methadone, I had 2 go on subs. Thought i was all set tapering down from methadone. Couldn't take the withdrawals or the pain. I went from 110mg to 24mg, then, I lost it. Anyway, like I said, methadone does work better 4 pain. They r both addictive. The good thing about subs is u don't have 2 go 2 a clinic, everyday. U find a good Dr and get take homes. ## i have been on both methadone and suboxone and they are very diffren... ...

Suboxone Op 80 Methadone
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking 40mg methadone everyday for almost a year now and I really would like to switch to suboxone. I know you can't take suboxone until you've had atleast 48hrs from your last dose of methadone, so yesterday and today I've taken an op 80 instead. My question is will I be able to take a suboxone tomorrow and not go into immediate w/d since it will be over 48 from last methadone dose? Or Should I be taking something else instead of op 80s to make the switch? Thank you in advance for any advice! ## Actually, you have to be in full withdrawal, from everything, before you can take Suboxone, so that means you can't be taking the Oxycontin, either. Suboxone actually contains 2 active ingredients, the narcotic Buprenorphine, coupled with Naloxone to prevent the abus... ...

Does pain killers help Methadone withdraws
4 Replies RSS
I have been taking Methadone for two years, but i want to get off of this medication and start taking Suboxone. Can I take Suboxone a day after I took my methadone? If not, can I take pain killers to help with the methadone withdraws until I start taking the suboxone? ## No, in order to start Suboxone, whether for drug addiction, or for pain, you have to be in full active withdrawal from all other narcotics. Suboxone contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine and Naloxone. The Naloxone helps neutralize other opiates to prevent their abuse, when someone is using it for addiction treatment. If you take it too close to the time period you are taking other narcotic analgesics, it can throw you into dangerous withdrawals. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I missed my clinic today... ...

Can I take methadone, hydromophrine and calmylin ace syrup together
1 Reply RSS
I take these for chronic back pain and I have a bad cough so doc gave me this cough syrup but it was new clinic n didn't ask what else I was on and I'm so sick it slipped my mind as well ## Well that would be adding another narcotic to the mix, since Codeine is one of the ingredients. As I'm sure you're aware, they can all cause depression of the central nervous system, so they more you take, the more risky it gets. Symptoms of dangerous CNS depression may include extreme drowsiness, shallow breathing, lowered heart rate, dizziness and somnolence. Learn more Codeine details here. How tolerant are you to opiates? It would likely be best to check with your doctor or pharmacist, before adding another, just for your own safety. ...

inaccurate info on darvocet
1 Reply RSS
I was told some time ago that DN100 had methadone in it, no info on that. my doc is afraid to give me pain meds so gives me this which really doesn't work but is full of aceto and i have bad liver disease. i don't know where to go from here. ## Darvocet contains the active ingredients Propoxyphene and Acetaminophen, if you picked up the prescription from a pharmacy, it should have listed this on the bottle and the patient advisory leaflet that you are given with all prescriptions. The Propoxyphene is a very mild narcotic, so it does not help with severe forms of pain. With the liver disease, it is generally not recommended that you use Acetaminophen or NSAIDs and your doctor should know this. If he prescribed this anyway, then I would suggest finding a new doctor. There are many... ...

Is much better for your teeth than methadone. It's exactly the same thing minus the extra sugar. ## It's actually just another brand name for Methadone, so in and of itself, it's not better for your teeth than Methadone, because all narcotics can leech the minerals from your body and cause dry mouth. In this case the only differences would be the inactive ingredients, so there may be less sweeteners, but everything else would still apply. Are there any other questions or comments? ...

The methadones have strong after life so would I have to wait longer than 24 hrs to take suboxane? If I longer than 24 hrs to take suboxane? If I can do the transaction? ## You have to be in full withdrawal from all other narcotic/opiates, before you can start taking Suboxone. It contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine and Naloxone and the Naloxone is used to neutralize other narcotics and prevent their abuse, while someone is being treated with it. So, if you aren't already in withdrawals, it can t... ...

Starting Suboxon after six months in recovery
3 Replies RSS
Have had major chronic pain for several years now, was on oxy for about 3 years, then Dilaudid and Methadone when the Oxy no longer helped. Got so addicted had to go to treatment to get off the stuff. Have been in recovery since Feb 2009, but dr wants me to start taking the 2 mg tabs twice a day starting tomorrow for the pain. Have been reading through the info and comments and am kind of freaked out. Is this truly a good chronic pain medication? I am not going thru any type of wd at this point, the one in treatment was almost more than I could bear and I don't know that I could make it through that again. ## Suboxone contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine and Naloxone, an opiate and an opiate agonist. I do understand where you are coming from, I quit very high doses of narco... ...

LITTLE, WHITE ROUND PILL ## I found a small white round pill with 54 on top and 210 underneath that, can anyone email me and tell me what that pill is and another pill I have that is oval and white with the letters and numbers M358 on it, does anyone know what drug this is. Thanks. ## The tablet with the 54 210 marking contains 5mgs of Methadone, which is an opiate used to treat pain and drug addiction. It does have the tendency to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Learn more Methadone details here. And the tablet with the M 358 marking contains 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen, the active ingredients in Vicodin, this is a narcotic analgesic. It may also be habit forming and has similar side effects to t... ...

Methadone Capsule
1 Reply RSS
Got clear tanish capsule white powder inside was told they are 10 mlg methadone capsules what are they ## Are they any types of markings or imprints on the capsule as well? I probably wouldn't trust the person who gave that to you if you even feel the need to question what that white powder could be. Unfortunately every prescription drug in the U.S. is required by the FDA to have some sort of marking that distinguishes it from other pills. The possibilities can seem endless without that information. It sounds like someone just bought a pack of clear empty capsules and filled them with baking soda or some other illicit drug. Certain websites do offer lab testing for a hefty fee to identify a pill's ingredients, but that may be your only other option if you want to play it safe. I... ...

buprenorphine blocks cocaine effects
Post a Reply
Hello, Me and my husband have using Buprenorphine more than one year, before we were on Methadone. Does Buprenorphine have the same ingredients and effects as Suboxone have? I wanna know if Buprenorphine blocks cocaine effects? Since we are on Buprenorphine, cocaine doesn't work at all. Why? Some people write that Suboxone does not blocks cocaine, they even use it both together. We use Bupren not Suboxone and I realy like to know which one is better and why Bupren blocks cocaine, 'cause we feel no effects of cocaine at all. What can we do, 'cause we really wish to have cocaine for a new year or even before?! What can we do? Please let me know why Cocaine doesn't works on Bupren? Would we feel the real effects of cocaine if we use Suboxone instead Bupren? Help me please ... ...

can any body tell me whats in methdone,and doses it show up on pee test as using methanphine ## Methadone is exactly what is in Methadone, there are not other ingredients except for inactive binders and fillers. This is an opiate narcotic, so no, it will not show up as Methamphetamine, but it will show up as a naroctic drug. ## I am not sure whats in it but I use to go to a pain specialist and they wanted a longer lasting pain killer cuz they didnt wanna scribe more vikoden and they put me on methadone and I swelled up with about 14 lbs of fluid and had to take fluid pills to pee it all out.

how to inject methadone
1 Reply RSS
how to inject Methadone 5 mg tablets ## I have to inform you that this is a very dangerous practice. Tablets are NOT meant to be injected. Most pills contain inactive ingredients that are called fillers and they are NOT meant to be ingested and broken down by the human body. They are normally just expelled in your waste. When you attempt to dissolve a tablet and inject it, you are putting these substances directly into your veins. This can result in blockages that could cause heart attacks, strokes or pulmonary embolisms. This could cause serious health complications, such as death!! If you need an injectable form, please see your doctor. ...

I dont know why drug companies put filler and gels in meds.All they are doing is poisoning people who will try to fix them anyway the can.And the drug companies know this.I thought thats why there in the business for to kept people healthy. ## Fillers and the like are used to enable a tablet to hold its shape. These are inactive ingredients that are safe for human consumption, they are not poisonous. The only time they endanger someone is if they crush or try to dissolve a tablet to snort it or inject it and the medications are not intended to be used this way. It is actually illegal to do this and use a medication in a manner for which is it not intended. When a drug company manufactures pills, they give clear instructions for their safe use. If someone uses them in some other manner, ... ...

small round white pill unscored, P over 5 on one side, blank on other
2 Replies RSS
small round white pill unscored, P over 5 on one side, blank on other. What is it? Found on ground at a friends house, just curious. ## I was only able to find one unconfirmed reference that said it could be a 5mg Methadone pill from Canada. You'd have to look into Canadian drug databases to confirm this match however. It is very likely that this pill is manufactured outside of the U.S. since the description does not show up in any of the U.S. drug databases. Another thing you can do is take the pill over to your local pharmacy and see if they have any particular way of testing for ingredients. Unfortunately there's not much else you can do in a situation where the pill is manufactured outside of the U.S.; but please post back if you're able to have some luck with either of ... ...

False Positive For Methadone
9 Replies RSS
I was tested a couple weeks ago bye swab it came back as having methadone in my system I had been taking nightquil for a cold I was starting to get could it have come back false positive ## I just liked it up and yes, it seems that some of the ingredients in Nyquil can cause a false positive on some tests for Amphetamines, Heroine, Methamphetamines, Morphine, Methadone and other opiates. They don't specifically state which ingredient it is, but the resource I use lists only the medications that have been scientifically/medically proven to register false positives for other substances. So, if you weren't taking Methadone, the Nyquil is probably your answer. Are there any questions or comments? ## I am on several Rx drugs plus I take weekly injections of B-12, folic acid I also ta... ...
