PLS HELPPP! i was on methadone for 3 years...went from 80mg down to 20mg...then switched to suboxone...been on it for about 3 months maybe 4...on 16mg...but im having a lotttt of pain problems...i have severe headaches...i feel nauseated all the time... can barely sleep (which is a lot due to the pain) and my dr. has yet to find anything...the methadone is out of my system...i guess where im getting at is can this be due to withdraw symptoms from the methadone even though its not in my system? and has anyone dealt with something similar? and if so what did you do?? ( especially for the pain ) on a side not does anyone one have any recommendations for relieving severe pain while on suboxone...or even methadone?!?! ## It sounds like you actually may be on too low of a dose of the Suboxone... ...

Switching From Suboxone To Methadone
6 Replies RSS
I've been on the highest dose of suboxone for about a year now and i don't feel like it's helping at all anymore. I wake up miserable everyday with horrible cravings and i wish i hadn't woken up at all. I want to switch to methadone for pain which is what my family Dr. treats me for. I think my Dr will write for it for pain management. But since i just picked up my suboxone for the month would it be able to be filled and also would the methadone be covered by my welfare insurance? I know he can write for suboxone even though i never asked him to do it since i go somewhere else. I live in Philadelphia i don't know if that makes a difference. Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated. ## Methadone and suboxone can't be taken together.. it's deadly My older s... ...

Is suboxone as hard to get off as methadone?
2 Replies RSS
Hi everyone! I was wondering if suboxone is as hard 2 get off as methadone? I was on 110 of methadone 4 almost 5 years, after many years of Oxy abuse. Got down 2 (24) and the withdrawals were so bad, and, the cravings came back. Dr put me on suboxone, which works great. I've been on 3 (8 mg) a day 4 almost 8 years now. I'm scared 2 death 2 get off. I suffer with a lot of pain, too. The suboxone helps some. What with it. I'm also afraid of the bad withdrawals, and returning back 2 pain pills. Any advise will b helpful. ## Hi Cats, You definately can get off subs it just takes time. Why not cut down just a couple of mgs and see how it goes. Instead of 8 three times a day you could try 8 than 6 than 8. If you feel allright after a week or so try dropping another 2. Theres no se... ...

what if your on methadone can you still take suboxon? ## NO! They are both very strong narcotics, it is not safe to take both. In addition, Suboxone also contains Naloxone, which neutralizes other opiates. This is done to prevent people from still trying to get high off of other narcotics while they are under Suboxone treatment. ## Also it will put you into IMMEDIATE withdrawals...so DO NOT DO IT!!!! ## So true I went into acute withdrawals. I did not feel human. I thought I could go get high and get rid of the feeling, so wrong. I t made it even worse. I am terrified of suboxen now. Don't take it too early! ## NO THAYS WHAT SOB.IS FOR GETTING OFF OG METHAFONE ## Yeah I think you'd be crazy to try. ## First hand info here, do NOT take Sub. with methadone in your system, you have... ...

And does suboxone help with pain relief at all? ## I'm not sure why they told you to go from 60mgs Meth to nothing. And just ride it out for a full month before starting suboxone. Whoever was giving you this treatment seems as if they do not know what they are doing. The truth is you are to wean down to 20 mg meth for three days in a row then start suboxone on the fourth day. I still felt really bad when i did this and have use... ...

I will tell you people this that Suboxone saved me. I was taking Methadone and whatever else I could get when I couldnt get the Methadone and, I started searching on the internet all you do is go google type in suboxone doctors and it will pull up a list by state. Belive me find one and start taking it today. I did it right I dropped down to 30mg of Methadone a day and then went through 3 days of hell. I read if you dont have a good withdrawal going that the suboxone will throw you into it. I will not lie. I didnt like the way I felt after the first two days. Dont get me wrong NO WITHDRAWALS!!!!!!!!!!!!! But the feeling was not what I was expecting but now 4 days later I feel like my old self I mean I really feel good. So please do it right and go through a day or two of hurting for you... ...

has anyone come down from suboxone slowly with no ill effect. ## yes ,i was on 115 mgs of methadone @ swithed to suboxone,it was much easier to ween down from sub than methadone,i'm on 4mgs,down from 16 mgs,it's a good treatment and you must ween down slowly,2mgs every 2 weeks,no sickness,that wasn't the case with methadone. ## Suboxone is very popular for this very reason, a slow taper makes it much easier to get off and stay off drugs. ## i am down to one suboxone a day now after being on three for about 6 months...i cannot afford it anymore so i plan to be weened on in a month or so...should i split my films in half for 2 weeks then to 1/4 ? will that help with withdrawal symptoms....i am scared of the symptons cause i work and go to school and do not want to be or feel s... ...

Butrans with suboxone to methadone for chronic pain, from pain management doctor. I feel terrible, no energy, anxiety, panic, fell like a dishrag! Help what is the proper equivalent for going from Butrans 10 patch with 3 8mg subs to methadone ## Hello, Fanny! How are you feeling? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having. It sounds like you might be experiencing some withdrawal symptoms, so you may need a higher dose of the Methadone. Why was your medication changed? Were the others not working for you? This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ...

how long after taking subIoxone can u take methadone
3 Replies RSS
I want to be back on methadone and am on suboxone should I wait or take it while on suboxone ## I want to know when can I feel the methadone after taking suboxone for two years ## Only your doctor will really be able to answer this, because it can vary from person to person and, of course, will also depend on your Suboxone dosage as to how much of the Naloxone that you've been taking. 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. You will need to wait awhile, but precisely how long can vary. What dosage have you been taking and for how long? ## Randy, do not understand why you want to go back on methadone. I was on it for 20 years and just this year was slid ove... ...

Ive been on methadone for a year 30mg daily I took that yesterday im out I have 4 mg subutex can I take it ## I was on (110) of methadone b 4 I switched 2 suboxone. My Dr. Told me I had 2 wait until I started feeling withdrawals b 4 I started the suboxone so it will work properly. I'm not saying that u have 2 b in a ball of withdrawals, but, u need 2 feel some. ## From what I've been reading, Post #1 is right about the waiting period. Apparently it is best to wait until you gradually start feeling the onset of withdrawals in order to get the most out of the Suboxone. So however long it may take to feel withdrawals from Methadone, this time frame can be different for everyone based on tolerance, dosage, frequency of use, metabolism, and several other individual factors.

I have 4 mg of dilaudid but in on about 170mg of methadone, I recently feel and sprained my elbow and was wondering if this will take away the pain, or will I be taking it for no reason ## Hi Joanna from RI, because u r on such a high dose of methadone, taking the 4mg of Dilaudid will probably defeat the purpose. I wouldn't recommend taking the Dilaudid. You probably wouldn't get any effect from it anyway. But, I wouldn't mix the 2. I'm sorry 2 hear about your pain, I suffer everyday with pain. But, I'm on suboxone. Use 2 b on methadone, which helped much more with pain. But, I switched 2 suboxone. What a dumb move I made. I'm also from RI.
