Using Suboxone To Get Off And Stay Off Opiates
I was prescribed opiate painkillers for 5 years. I gradually became totally addicted to the point that while these drugs ( Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Oxycontin and others) worked well for their intended purpose, the 'good feeling" they gave me became the focal point of my life. The unavoidable physical and psychological dependence eventually led to serious and harmful consequences- damaged or ruined relationships (divorce in my case) with people who were now less important than the drugs. Responsibilities and interests I had fell by the wayside. Although I have a legitimate need for pain relief due to nerve damage caused by disease, the doctor saw that I was abusing the drugs- taking too much and using them to get high- and cut me off. The withdrawal symptoms were horrific. I went ... ...

saboxin (its suboxone)
It's an orange pill that dissolves under the tongue that has a cross on one side. Goes from 2mg to 8mg. I have been on this for 2 years to help in my addiction to opiates. ## I have been on percocets for 2 years and I would really like to go off, does saboxin help Pain that you truely have? or does it just take the edge off? ## Yes Suboxone has an actual pain killer i it that can not only help with existing pain but stop the pain pill withdrawal symptoms in their track when you cannot take the vicodin, percocets, hydrocodone, or whatever opiate you are on any longer. ## i am swiching from methadone to saboxin in 5 days is the start hard? ## Is it normal to feel 4C4 high when given 1st. dose of saboxin ? ## I live in Dayton Ohio and I am fighting my addiction to opiates.I have taken ... ...

suboxone and depression
hi... does anyone else out there get relief from chronic depression by taking the suboxone? i take it illegally whenever i run out of percs,and it always makes me feel better,like i can do more things, and i have more week, i go to a suboxone doctor to get on this legally, but should i tell him that i take them illegally and that they help with my depression? i am not sure if i should tell him this..i would love to hear from soneone...thanks ## I take suboxone from a doctor and after you taking percs, yes, he may start you on the suboxone program($$$) if he sees fit- or if you are truly addicted to opiates, but when you tell him you take percs for depression he will definitely add an anti-depressant to your med. list then taper you off the sub. program. It works. Depressio... ...

Side effects of suboxone
I have been on suboxone now for just under a month. I think it is an amazing drug, i have had no cravings or interest in returning to opiates, my drug of choice was oxy. I get up every day feeling happy, and am able to take on what ever the day brings me. I am also on lexapro for depression at this time. There is one problem after i take my dose, which is 8 mg. twice a day, I am extremely tired sometimes to the point where if i sit down I will nod off, so I keep moving and can usually fight through it. I am wondering do other people feel this way or does it get better the longer you are on it? Two other things that are sometimes very bothersome are dizzyness and extreme dry mouth. I just wanted to find out other peoples experiences. Thanx ## Hey yea I get the same nod as you, it starts ... ...

Sick On Suboxone Want To Put My Fentanyl Back Can I
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... ...

I Took Half Of A Suboxone Pill Three Days Ago Still Feel Breally Sick Dont Take These Pilss On Regular And Havent Been Addicted To Any Opiates
How long will the nausea last. I took half a pill of suboxone and rabout an hour later, I threw up and wazs dizzy as hell. I still feel sick and I don't kknow what to do. I don't normally take this kinda pill and bhave never been addicted to opiates ## Well Suboxone actually contains 2 active ingredients, Buprenorphine and Suboxone. That means that there are several possible reasons that this may have happened. One is due to the fact that the Buprenorphine is a very potent narcotic and it can cause the types of things you've described as a side effect, especially if you aren't used to taking it. Another reason could be due to the Naloxone, it is in this medication to neutralize other opiates and prevent their abuse, while someone is being treated with it, thus if you had... ...

On suboxone and still in pain
I had lots of surgeries and many health problems. Used opiates 4 ten years and became addicted. I was on methadone 4 almost 5 years. Now I've been on suboxone 4 ten years. But, I still suffer with pain. Don't want 2 go back on pain pills, but, don't know what 2 do? ## I feel the same as u. STUCK! I had many of surgeries and have a lot of medical problems. I was on heavy duty pain meds 4 ten years. Then I went on methadone, that helped with pain. But, I decided 2 taper off after 5 years. I was on 120mgs and got down to 24mgs. At that point the withdrawals were so bad, I walked into my Drs. Office in tears begging him 2 help me. He said I had 2 choices. Either stay on methadone and increase the dose or go on suboxone. I went right on suboxone that day. I suffer all the time wi... ...

subtext/suboxone information
You people have no idea about how subutex/suboxone works. 1 you don't need to wait anymore than 24 hours to start subs if using H. 2 subs are both agonist and antagonist so once you reach a certain dose they effectively block out any other opiate/opiod that you try to use. 3 taking other opiates/opiods while on subs will NOT make you sick, you just won't feel their effects due to the subs blocking properties. 4 subs are not the magic bullet for addicts as you also become dependent on them and after being on subs for a while you will find that coming off them is VERY difficult and extremely long winded, the best you can hope for is to taper down to the smallest amount you can (I'm taking crumbs here; break your pills into small pieces when you want to get off them) but even d... ...

Suboxone and Oxycodone Rx
Hello, I have been taking Suboxone for approximately 3 weeks. I was taking opiates, legally, for four+ years but recently I had problems after surgery by increasing my dosages and eventually running out quite often which lead all my doctors to a rehab place. I went through 3 weeks of Intensive Outpatient Treatment which was complete crap but it kept me busy during the morning. I now have an Rx from my PCP who KNOWS about me being on Suboxone and said to stop the Suboxone for a couple/few days and then start the Oxy's. Here's my question: Can I fill the Rx for OxyIR when I'm going to be picking up my most recent Rx of Suboxone tomorrow? I feel like the pharmacy might be thinking it's Doctor Shopping but if they call my PCP, he knows about the Suboxone use. He desperately ... ...

Suboxone, first time, very low dose.
I took an 1/8 or less of a 8/2mg suboxone. I did not take it to get off opiates but to ease through wds until i get my script filled tomorrow This is my first time ever taking suboxone. Will such a low dose prevent me from feeling my percocet in 20hrs? ## I don't have personal experience on the matter, but I'd imagine that the Suboxone wouldn't have had much time to accumulate in your system since you've only been taking it for a couple days now. According to wiki, the elimination half-life of buprenorphine lies anywhere between 20 to 73 hours (or about 37 hours on avg). If you want to play it safe you should probably give it an extra day and trust your intuition on the timing of your dose. Everyone's metabolism is different, but this way you'd at least know for ... ...

suboxone to fentynal for pain mgmt
I'm a chronic pain pt. I was on 16 mg of sub for pain for 2 straight years. It completely stopped working, when in the beginning it worked "good enough" now, my dr is a pain specialist and suboxone dr. He put me on a fentynal patch 25 mcg told me to take my last dose of sub and put patch on at same time because sub should b mostly out of my system within 12 hrs. I had no problem switching but a little wd from the sub. It is only day 4....dr said 40% of your opiod receptors r still open on sub!!! It only fills 60% of them. Still, enough to block most opiates, except very high doses. Now, I am just starting to feel the fentynal on day 4. But am still in moderate/sometimes severe pain. Anyone with a similar experience???? ## Hi Painpatient38, I haven't personally had an exp... ...

suboxone 8mg/2mg and roxy 30's
I am currently taking 8 to 10 roxy 30's a day. I have suboxones 8mg/2mg to help get clean+ off of these. I know the suboxones are the best pill made to help with the withdraws*but im wondering if for the 1st 3=5 days when im having trouble sleeping and feeling clamy if i should take like half of a roxy 30{which i have done in the past}which helps me to sleep and take away the clamy feeling or any other suggestions that u may have*thanx to anyone answering this for me ## Taking the Oxycodone pills with the Suboxone will do you no good, it contains a substance that neutralizes opiates to prevent their abuse during treatment, that is why it throws you into withdrawals. Suboxone should really not be used without a doctor's supervision, as the dosage and usage is carefully monitored ... ...

I have a friend who is on suboxone .yet she has gone back to mixing it with other this dangerous? ## That is very dangerous go on its website it has a list of drugs not to mix it with it is very deadly if their the wrong ones escpecially benzos,like xanax valium et ## Suboxone contains the opiate Buprenorphine and the agonist Naloxone, which neutralizes other opiates if you mix them. The problem that occurs, is most people keep taking more and more of the other opiates, since they aren't feeling the effects, so in addition to the danger of interactions from the medications, they are risking an overdose. Most opiates and Benzodiazepines also cause respiratory depression, which can also be highly dangerous if they are abused together, since this will aggravate the side effec... ...

What's the difference?
Can someone please tell me what the difference between suboxone and subutex is? And , why one doctor would prescribe one over the other? ## Hello, Cats68! How are you? Subutex contains the active ingredient Buprenorphine, but Suboxone couples it with Naloxone to prevent the abuse of other narcotics, while someone is being treated with it. Thus, that also explains why some doctors prefer one over the other. This is a narcotic, 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? ## Dear Verwon, I now understand the difference b tween them. But why would one doctor use one over the other? Can people still feel the effects of opiates on subtext, b cause it doesn... ...

Has anyone went back and fourth from The boxing to Percocets
Hi I am currently 11 days clean off of Percocet I've been using for over two years now but I've been going back-and-forth from Percocets to suboxone and I'm now on day two off Suboxone how much longer do I have till I feel better? I need help!! ## HI, Nelly! How are you? Why are you going back and forth between them? Suboxone contains both Buprenorphine and Naloxone, the latter of which is actually meant to neutralize other opiates and prevent their abuse, while being treated with it. Learn more Suboxone details here. Are you working with a doctor? If not, I strongly urge you to do so, in order to do this right and avoid future problems. ...

If I Stop Suboxen 14hrs Ago And Take 5mg Oxy Er For Pain From Knee Surgery Will They Work
if i stop taken suboxen 14hrs ago can i take 5mgs. oxy. imediate release now and will i get and feel the affects of the oxy? i recently had knee surgery and the pain is getting to me today. ## I REALLY NEEDA ANSWER TO THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. HELP HHELP HELP ## It is very doubtful, it's usually recommended that someone be off of the Suboxone for at least 24 hours, before taking another narcotic. This is due to the Naloxone in the Suboxone, which helps neutralize other opiates to prevent their abuse, while someone is under treatment with the Suboxone. Oxycodone is also a narcotic, so it may cause similar side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. Are there any other questions or comments? ...
