switching from subutex to suboxone
3 Replies RSS
I have currently been on subutex for a little over 3 years at first it was mainly due to the price difference between the subutex And subixone then I ended up pregnant and gave birth in July and in between that time the laws changed and my Dr isn't allowed to prescribe subutex unless your pregnant but I had gotten a extra 6months due to breast feeding and at my last appointment he said he had no choice? My first issue is I'm still breast feeding so what does this mean for my daughter? Secondly I have been perfectly fine on subutex no slips at all! Now I have been taking the subixone for about 6 days and I feel like I'm dying? Is this normal? Will it pass? ## I'm very sorry that you're feeling so miserable. That can happen, especially since the Naloxone in the Suboxon... ...

Bad reaction after switching from Subutex to Suboxone
13 Replies RSS
I was on Subutex for over a year and a half then I lost my doctor. When I found out I was pregnant he put me back on subutex. After I had my daughter he took me off subutex and put me on suboxone. Within a couple hours of the first dose my skin became red and blotchy. I couldn't stop scratching at myself so he prescribed Benadryl for an allergic reaction... I continued to take them for a month and a half.. I started getting horrible migraines and nausea, and now within an hour hour and a half of taking the pill I'll throw up.... Every time. I have spoken with my doctor about these symptoms..He tells me its not physically possible to be allergic to Suboxone and that if I'm allergic to it then I must be allergic to Subutex as well. But I never had these issues with the Subutex... ...

take subutex and suboxone together
22 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... ...

price difference suboxone and subutex
2 Replies RSS
hello all. thanks ahead of time for the.help. let me begin by saying that i am in recovery from opiate addiction. i realize that there is a bad stigma out there about these programs, but if you have the desire to get clean they really work. i have been on suboxone for a couple months and have been completely devout to the program, havent messed up once. my insurance ran out last.month, and the cost of my monthly perscription is now over $650 for two tabs a day. i have heard that subutex is significantly cheaper, and the current cost of my perscription is entirely undoable. can anyone tell me if i would save money by switching to generic subutex paying out of pocket? ## Hello, Based on my research, the difference in price between Suboxone and Subutex is pretty large. Some say that Subute... ...

methodone to subutex
1 Reply RSS
I'm on 100 mg of methodone and im thinking of switching to subut ex ! What is the side affects I have heard so many diff. Stuff so could u plz help me ## Hello, Dawn! How are you? Subutex carries the risk of causing the same side effects as Methadone and other opiate narcotics. The active ingredient in it is Buprenorphine, so it can also be habit forming and cause dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, depression and constipation. The difference is that is isn't known to cause the withdrawals that are as severe as those of Methadone, nor to cause cravings. So, unlike Methadone treatment, where people usually end up on a lifetime maintenance dose of it, those who take Subutex or Suboxone usually end up eventually becoming entirely drug free. Are there any other questions or concerns? ...

I just got thest from my pharmacy as well and the side effects were really bad for me. I don't even think that they are real. Let me ask you this, if you take three or four of the pills and look at one side of each, looking at the 93 side left to right, and then when you flip the pill over to the left does the 5721 read at a totally different angle (the the 5721 is not imprinted in the exact same location as the 93?) do this with a few of the pills .

Does Suboxone cause stomach erosion
1 Reply RSS
I had trouble swallowing so went to a gastronolgist and he said i had some stomach erosion ive been on them for 2 years is it causing the stomach erosion and if so would it help to take the subutex instead ## Don,t know if it erodes the stomach but some people have complained of stomach ache while taking them. You can spit out the saliva after the sub has disolved. Not sure if that would make any differance in your case. Some people have switched to subutex claiming the naloxone bothers there stomach. Most sub drs "at least around here" won,t prescribe subutex unless your pregnant. Ask your sub dr what he thinks about switching. ...

Suboxon Vs Subutex
1 Reply RSS
I am currently on Suboxon and have been for over a year now. It is getting too expensive for me. My doctor told me she could put me on Subutex. Other than the opiate blocker, what is the difference? How different will it make me feel? Will I go through any withdrawls from Suboxone? Does Subutex still give you that "feel good feeling"? ## There really shouldn't be any other difference, as long as she gives you an equivalent dosage, because the main active ingredient is still the same, Buprenorphine. Learn more Buprenorphine details here. In most cases, people can do a clean and easy switch from one to the other. When will you be switching? ...

subsal mint tablet suboxone
8 Replies RSS
I am currently taking subutex cause I am allergic to something in suboxone. My doctor just asked me if I wanted to try something called subsal. Its new and I guess its a mint flavor tablet.... What is it ## Hi leah, Sorry to hear about your allergy to Suboxone. However, I haven't been able to find any specific details on any medications by the name of Subsal. Did your doctor mention anything else about what it's supposed to be used for? If the Subutex is working well as an alternative option, then in my honest opinion it may be best to stick with what you already know, since different brands can still effect each person differently. So switching medications is somewhat of a gamble in that regard. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Subutex Details I hope this help... ...

Taking Suboxone Film while pregnant
7 Replies RSS
I'v been on Suboxone Film,8mg,for a year. Before switching to film,I was taking subutex tablets,8 mg, 3 years.Every time i'v tapered down to quit, I'v failed. I cant handle the endless hell of w/d symptoms. The last time I tapered off, 4 weeks later I was still sick as hell. So I deciced long-term maintenance was best. I didnt plan on getting pregnant, but now that i am, i need to take care of my body. Considering the agony I go thru w/d, I hoped I would get the go ahead for a dr. to stay on the med, perhaps in a smaller dose,(4mg a day). Has anyone gone thru a similar situation? ## Well, stopping completely and going through withdrawals is generally not recommended, because it may actually cause a miscarriage. The problem, however, is that the safety of the Buprenorphine be... ...

I'm on pre gablin 200mg twice a day how long do I leave it before starting subutex ive been on pre gablin for 6 weeks ## Hello, Gav! How are you? There is no need to worry about taking Pregabalin and switching to Subutex, since Pregabalin is not an opiate. Some people even take it with Suboxone, or Subutex. The FDA warns that Subutex carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help? ## Iv just started 2day on 4mg subetex how long will it take for my body to get used to the change i was on methodone and took last dose sunday n started subetex 2day monday i also take gabapentin will that help with withdrawl ...

missed 95mg of methadone and substituted with a subutex
1 Reply RSS
My finance has been attending a methadone clinic for about a month now. He is up to 95 ml of liquid methadone. This morning he missed his dosage and in fear of getting withdrawal he took a subutex. He is now getting insanely cold then hot then cold again. His legs are hurting him insanely bad. Should I be worried? Can someone please tell me what's going on? I have no idea about any of this stuff but I absolutely hate seeing him this way! HELP ME PLEASE!!!! ## I think it's called precipitated withdrawals. It's what happens when you take the suboxone before your body is completely rid of the methadone. Basically the suboxone is forcing his body to eliminate the methadone. This is what I gather from reading posts about switching from methadone to subs. They say at least 3 - 4 d... ...

Looking for a doctor in Western PA who will prescribe Subute
Post a Reply
I am not allergic to suboxone. However they give me headaches and prices are outrageous! I was tricked into switching from subutex to trying these new Zubsolv's which has made my life hell, literally. I am not an abuser. I have been struggling with treatment itself in terms of finding a doctor who will prescribe what helps "Subutex" and who will not take me off it in a month or two and try experimenting my life with suboxone, subzolv and whatever else. I'm not seeking this medication to abuse it. It works so perfectly for me and its so stressful to think that nobody will prescribe it. I pay $2.50 for Subutex,$9.80 for subzolv and $10.17 for suboxon film. I'm just trying to get by in life with the least amount of stress possible. Where can I find a doctor who will unders ...

Making the switch
2 Replies RSS
I just recently switched from 70 mg of methadone to suboxone. The Dr told me to wait 3 days. The clinic insisted that I waited to go down to 30 mg before switching to subutex so it scared the crap out of me. So on the third day I took a 1 mg strip of sub and it put me into total withdrawal. It was horrible, I couldn't understand why he didn't prescribe me subutex so it didn't have the opiate blocker. Anyway I got thru the night and woke up and just took 4 mgs and felt a little better then on day 5. I went to see my Dr to explain what's going on and asked why he didn't give me subutex instead of suboxone. He said it doesn't make a difference in this instance. So I guess he knows better than I do. It's Saturday and I'm feeling better but I'm still not f... ...

Subtex 8MG Tablet,
4 Replies RSS
Im switching from Saboxone to this Suvutex I wanted information ## Those two drugs are similar, both have Buprenorphine as an active chemical. The difference is that Suboxone contains buprenorphine hydrochloride and naloxone hydrochloride, whereas Subutex just has the buprenorphine hydrochloride. Both are used to treat opioid dependence and help with withdrawals. The following text was taken from an article on the FDA: 1. What are Suboxone and Subutex? Subutex and Suboxone are medications approved for the treatment of opiate dependence. Both medicines contain the active ingredient, buprenorphine hydrochloride, which works to reduce the symptoms of opiate dependence. 2. Why did the FDA approve two medications? Subutex contains only buprenorphine hydrochloride. This formulation was develo... ...

What do i do to.get suboxen from.dr.curremtly taking narcos,i heard suboxen are better as far as pain.that you dont have.to take as many ## Hello, Sherry! How are you? Suboxone is actually a very weak opiate and doesn't adequately relieve pain for many people. Many have reported going on it and finding that they were in miserable pain, after switching. The FDA classifies it 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.
