Suboxone And Fentanyl
2 Replies RSS
Hi, my name is Rebecca. I have been using opiates for about 3 years now, but I've only been addicted to opiates for a year now. I say opiates but I go back and forth between opiates and suboxone. For the past year I have been using suboxone almost everyday(supplied by boyfriend) and he does it too. Last week my boyfriend and I went through a nasty breakup and he hasn't been giving me anymore suboxone or using it himself either. We were together 5 years and were happy(I'm absolutely devastated.) snd we also LIVE TOGETHER. however, I could go on about what's been going on in the relationship and how upset I have been, and him just going out and partying like nothing happened, but that's not why I'm typing this. So back to last week, we broke up and quit taking subo... ...

suboxone after fentanyl patch?
Post a Reply
First time ever using fentanyl. I cut a 75 mcg fentanyl patch in half. I only put one half on my arm and stored the other half away. I wore the patch only 12 hours and took it off at 1:10am. Will it be okay to take a suboxone strip for pain and withdrawal in about 10-12 hours? Or when can I safely take the suboxone after taking off the fentanyl patch? ...

On Fentanyl How Long To Wait Take Suboxone

i am on 100 mcg fentanyl patch every 48 and given the certain amount of waste each month with one or more galling off and whatnot i keep a couple suboxone from an old script on hand. how long should i wait to take a half an eight mg sub.??? thank you in advance ## To prevent them falling off, you might want to try using some waterproof medical tape to help keep them on, they also sell a clear sticky patch that can be used over them and it is fine to do so, unless your doctor has given you specific instructions not to. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Learn more Suboxone details here. As to the Suboxone, along with the narcotic Buprenorphine, it also contains Naloxone, which is used to help prevent the abuse of other opiates, while someone is under treatment with it, thus you have to be... ...

Sick On Suboxone Want To Put My Fentanyl Back Can I
2 Replies RSS
I've been taking suboxone for2 days now and I'm still sick. I was on fentanyl 75. Can I put back my patch to get rid of this withdrawal? ## I'm not a doctor but I would say if you've only been taking it a few days to stop taking the suboxone and get back on the fen patch. You may not feel it like you used too, bc Suboxone blocks the effects of euphoria from regular narcotics because its used a lot for people who are addicted to opiates, such as pain patches. I think you will have little to no withdrawal if you start back on the pain patch because the body stil recognizes the Suboxone as an opiate and the patch is obviously an opitate, too, just without the Naloxone and Bupernorine. Ithe patch should be fine to return to, just don't combine subs with the patches or yo... ...

Suboxone And Fentyal Patch
3 Replies RSS
I have chronic back pain from a sports injury several years ago. Since the suboxone tablets are being discontinued and my doctor cannot subscribe the medication for pain management any longer, he wants me to switch to fentanyl patches. My doctor is also unable to subscribe suboxone film which is replacing the tablets. How do you switch from suboxone to fentanyl patches, when suboxone blocks all opiates? Do you just stop one medication then start another one? Do you have to get off suboxone then start taking fentanyl? ## Yes, the Naloxone in the Suboxone can neutralize other opiates, so you'd have to stop taking it for several days, then start the new medication. Learn more Fentanyl details here. What type of doctor are you seeing? ## can I take suboxone and then fentynol a few hours... ...

i going on suboxen and need to knnow when i start subs ## Hello, Mike! How are you? You actually need to be in full withdrawal, before taking Suboxone. It contains Buprenorphine coupled with Naloxone, which neutralizes other narcotics to prevent them being used, while someone is being treated with it, so taking it too soon could throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. What instructions did your doctor provide? 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. How long have you been off of the Fentanyl? ...

HELP! suboxone withdrawal

I'm so aware of the returning withdrawal symptoms since I dropped down from 1/2 strp to 1/4 strip of Suboxone. Is it the closer you get to being done with the Subs the stronger the withdrawal symptoms occur? I've been on the 1/4 strip for 8 days now. I haven't been able to sleep, constant turning, weird leg feelings. I don't want to go up a 1/4 as I need off of it! I've been on this crap since end of Feb. when I was detoxed from Fentanyl 25mcg and Percocet. These were prescribed, after numerous surgeries since 2005. How long will these symptoms of, hot flashes, sleep issues go on? I have to be off of this Subs for 5 days, in order to have oral surgery. It's so unpredictable and scary. Can anyone offer wisdom?? ## Hello, Sula! How are you doing? It usually takes a... ...

5 Replies RSS
I am prescribed fentanyl 25mcgs/hr. Sometimes I have trouble keeping the patch on. I had a couple fall off early this month and couldn't get my refill early. So I decided I would use Subxn to help if there was withdrawal. It worked good, but now it's time for me to stop and put back on my patch. I don't know how long I have to wait. I took 2mgs yesterday at 3pm. It's now 1pm. Is it too soon? ## You will be fine to take it, 2mg is a really low dosage- I take a-more than that. Suboxin is a opiate blocker- your patch may not seem as strong but I doubt it- If you take suboxin over a period of time 3days or more - then your patch would be a waste. That low of a dose will not effect that patch 2-day. But if you hadden take a 8mg gram suboxin- I would suggest wating 2days befor... ...

How Far Into Withdrawal Do I Need To Be Before Can Take Suboxone
13 Replies RSS
I am on oxycotine and fentanyl patches, my uncertainty is how much into withdrawal do i need to be before taking suboxone, can i take it at the beggining when i start with the stomach problems i.e. diarrhea , heavy fatigue? ## No, Suboxone can only be taken once you are in full withdrawal. This is due to the fact that along with the Buprenorphine, it also contains Naloxone, to prevent the abuse of other opiates while someone is under treatment with it. Thus, if it is started too soon, it can throw you into severe, dangerous withdrawals.

Opiate addiction and trying to beat it
4 Replies RSS
I have had a problem with opiates going back to 2006 starting with vicodin following shoulder surgery. My usage progressed to Percocet, fentanyl, OxyContin, suboxone - clean for 2.5 years, relapse on tramadol, back on suboxone for 2 years, jumped at 2mgs and now weening with kratom. To say it has been a journey is an understatement. I am not naive enough to think that using kratom means I'm "clean" from opiates. It is filling my receptors just like the rest an it's time for me to stop. I've been actively trying to stay clean for about a year now. I no longer chase the high, I just run from WDs. I've gone through them more times to count and only once pulled through and stayed clean for longer than a week or 2. I actually was clean for almost 3 years following my ... ...

can't take suboxone, or benzos ==adverse reactions do i just stick to the med hoping my body will except, or just drop ct and go through the withdrawals ## You shouldn't be experiencing withdrawals, if you are still taking the same dosage. Even as a maintenance dose, it will prevent withdrawals, if it doesn't help with your pain, at all. There are other opiates you can try, the strongest one on the market is Fentanyl, which is available as a patch and a lollipop.

morphine to methadone

I am currently on 54 ml. of Ordine 10, 150 mg Fentanyl patch, and 80 mg Targin equivalent to about 1,200 mg of morphine a day . my pain specialist wants me to change to methadone or suboxone what are your thoughts. Thanks in advance ## Hello, Allan! How are you? Most people have said that Suboxone didn't do much for their pain, so if you need pain relief, you might be better off with the Methadone. I've never taken either one myself, I am just stating what I've learned from other posters on this site. 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. Does anyone else have any advice to offer? ## I really strongly suggest having nothing to do with methadone, ... ...

I've been on 150mcg fentymal patches for past 9 yts and my doc in west tx just cut me off without reason or warning. Haven't been able to find ANY DR TO prescribe fentynal so wanting to try subutex not suboxone due to terrible side effects PLEASE HELP IN CHRONIC PAIN DUE TO MANY SPINAL SUTGERIES ## Hello, Gumdrop! How are you? Part of your problem might be due to looking for a doctor to prescribe Fentanyl, rather than just looking for a new doctor. If you're contacting doctors and asking if they'll prescribe any specific medication, they'll usually just see that as drug seeking behavior and tell you no. And if you require a medication like this for long-term chronic pain, you'll most likely need to see a pain management specialist, since the new regulations restr... ...

I've had chronic pain for fifteen years and been on many types of medications, opiate and non-opiate. When I changed insurance and couldn't see my regular doctor, I ran out of fentanyl patches and oxycodone. I had never abused my medication, but after going through a few days of horrible withdrawals, I became desperate and made the dumb mistake of trying H. That was three months ago and I'm too ashamed and embarrassed to attempt to try a new pain specialist. I did go to a suboxone clinic for about a week, but the pain was too unbearable and I went back to the dope. I have really bad veins, plus I'm not good at inj's. so I have bad bruises and marks. I want to get on legitimate pain meds, even methadone if that's all I can get. I can't go on like this anymore ... ...

Can I take fentanyl before my subutex or will it send Me into precipatate withdrawal

I know if I take heroin then my subutex, I will go into precipatated withdrawal. but I wouldn't go into withdrawal if I took my subutex then heroin. Is it the same situation with fentanyl? ## Are you sure you are taking Subutex or Suboxone - Reason I'm asking is Suboxone has has an active drug in it called Naltrexone which is an opiate antagonist which sends a user into instant w/d if the use any other type of opiate - Subutex on the other hand is given to patients typically who go to DR with opiates in there system and can start Bupropion treatment immediately without having to experience wd.

I've been taking one of these drugs now for 3 years and it is a miracle. I was on 15 100 microgram Fentanyl patches for 5 years for chronic back pain -- the drug ruled and ruined my life (marriage, relationships with children and friends, and job). It changed my personality, made me angry, nasty, aggressive, or incoherent. The ups and downs were crazy in terms of the drug effect. This makes little sense as the drug transmits the medication through your skin, slowly, and SHOULD last for 3 days. Normally, 10 patches should have been enough (for a 30-day period), but the 3rd day I felt sick -- not enough drug left in the patch. That's why I need 15 patches for the month, instead of 10. Anyway, I was taking 3 8mg Subs per day and it worked great. According to the doctor, anything ab... ...
