Klonopin With Suboxone For Hydrocodone Dependence

Hello I just found this forum, and first I want to say I have taken Klonopin 1 mg a day for 20 years for my anxiety disorder. 9 years ago after a c-section I became dependent on Hydrocodone. Recently I have tapered down to only 1 to 2 a day and have been trying so hard to quit. Anyways, I was rx'ed some 5mg Suboxone pills. For a few days I have taken just a little of the pill, maybe 1mg of it gets me through the day, but after researching it I am worried.

I was going to go back to the doctor to see if they would give me those to stop the Hydrocodone dependence. But there is no way I could ever stop the Klonopin. I would rather be dependent on it than go through my monstrous panic attacks. Would these small doses be safe together? 1mg Klonopin and 1 (maybe 1.5) mg Suboxone? There is no way I could handle more of the Suboxone, as it makes me feel way too strange.

I don't take anything recreationally, just to feel normal. Any help is greatly appreciated. Maybe just stick with lowering my hydrocodone but I no longer have a prescription for them so I'm not sure. I've tried many times to stop and did it successfully one time - When I found out I was pregnant with twins! I tapered off and felt great! I was so proud ! Then another c-section delivery... I told them I didn't want any Lortab but I finally gave in became dependent again. That was five years ago but I'm done with all of this. But I'm also afraid of things I have read about hurting my brain with the dependence. Will it ever be right again??

Hi, Suboxone sublingual film is already available in 2mg/0.5mg and 8mg/2mg dosage strengths. The new 4mg/1mg and 12mg/3mg strengths of Suboxone sublingual film will be available later this so I don't think you have 5mg suboxone

I have been taking klonopin and Suboxone for over year now. I’m on 8 mg of Suboxone the strips and 1 mg of klonopin twice a day. I have had no problems with the combination at all. Some Suboxone doctors will not prescribe benzos with Suboxone but I was already on Klonopin before I got on Suboxone and my Suboxone doctor has no problem with it.

I also take Suboxone 3mg every day or so, and 1mg klonopin x3. It is all up to the pain management doctor you see. Mine, who I made my primary, wants me to see a Psychiatrist or Pschologist who will from now on write my Rx.

Hi, I was taking pain meds for years and I needed to stop. I started taking Methadone and it worked amazingly. No withdrawals from not taking pain meds. I couldn’t believe the withdrawals were gone after taking one dose. Methadone doesn’t give you euphoria either. I know the feeling we all feel after taking pain meds. Methadone does not give you that feeling at all.

Re: Me (# 3)

Are you in the New Orleans area? Because I have a psychiatrist that prescribes my Klonopin and my Suboxone doctor that prescribes the Suboxone and they both know about each other.

No she’s taking the Suboxone tab. it’s not the film. I’m not too familiar with those with milligrams and all.

I was on hydrocodone, oxycontin, ms morphine, xanax & ritalin for 25 years. After the US. Medical group did the opiate crackdown in 2016 I had to detox like everyone else. It took only 45 days for the taper off of all medicines i was on. It took 14 months for my body to readjust to normal thinking and pain receptors. I was on 280mg of opiates per day. You're on a small dose of hydrocodone at just 2 pills a day. Do yourself a favor and just taper off the hydrocodone over 3 weeks.

Take a 3/4 dose for a week
Then 1/2 dose for a week
Then 1/4 dose for a week

4th week - try not to think about it... It's tough and minor pain may be felt, but it's worth it.

The suboxone is an addictive medicine used as a substitute for opiates. If you take that you will become dependant on that. I never thought all my pain was caused by a serious injury i had. Until i detoxed and realized much pain was caused by opiate dependency. If i never detoxed i would've never believed a day without a pill could be possible. Now i am on the honour roll using opiates with my doctor. I just take a random opiate 2 or 3 xs a week if needed. A tiny mg is all i need. Remember, painkillers are not to stop pain, just make life liveable at times.

Don't be dependant on suboxone or hydrocodone. Or any opiate. You will experience pain once off perhaps for a short time. I had minor tolerable pain. I'm just not looking for the opiate bottle anymore. Good luck.

Nite and 10 mac is what I take. I go to a pain clinic. I was presently on hydrocodone 10mg 6 x daily and this is what she put me on: Nite and 10 mac. She's an anesthesiologist and all she wants to do is poke me but she won't increase this.

Have been on both Meds for some time without any problems. I would calm down around it. Your on such a low dose of both, your fine. You only get in some respiratory problems if you mix them together at much higher levels
Much Peace, and live your life. Dont make this the whole focus.

No they come in 2, 6 and 8. I heard they are supposed to be making a 12 also but could be a rumor.

Suboxone works well. It's still addictive and becomes a crutch for opiates. Suboxone is the number 1 abused drug used and sold in US prison systems. That tells you a little bit about suboxone.

Summer,

You're doing great. Don't worry so much about the Klonopin dose, it's very light. This is what I do all day, this works. Try to get clear of what your ultimate goal is and focus on that. All this takes time. Tapering too fast is a set up for failure. You will do this. Reach out to me anytime. {edited for privacy}. Much peace to you.

Re: Allison (# 5)

No, I live on the East coast. My sub/primary care is making me see someone in the Psych field. My primary care never feels comfortable writing out those meds, saying I am too complicated, but the psych doctors just give me too many drugs, that if I would take them as prescribed, I would be asleep 24/7.

Re: Neil 7 (# 11)

The film's come in 12mg 8mg 4mg and 2mg. Zubsolv mint flavored version of bupe comes in 11.2 and 8.6 or some weird numbers and promise theirs are stronger. Now there are many pill versions but most follow 2mg, 4mg, and 8mg. I wouldn't be surprised other companies having other mg. They just released a monthly shot that last all month called sublocade. I know it comes in 300mg and 100mg shots. I have yet but am looking to try it as the trial had great success.
