Whats The Best Way To Get Suboxone Out Of Your System

i took half a strip of suboxone on friday and i have to take a drug test soon what is the best way to get it out of my system? ## Don't take it in the first place..... in all honesty, depending on the type of drug screening you are submitting to, you may be screwed no matter what you do, but drink LOTS of water and stay away from ALL narcotics until your screening.... ## There is really no guaranteed way to make sure it isn't in your system and won't be detected by a drug test, other than the one already stated, which is to not take it. One of the active ingredients in Suboxone is the opiate narcotic Buprenorphine and it can be detectable in a standard urine test for approximately 4 to 5 days, after last dosing. There is no precise time frame that can be given, however, beca...

Rhodes/Purdue buprenorphine hcl 8mg RP b8 vs Roxanne 54 411

I have made the switch from the 8mg films to 8mg buprenorphine tablets only. With all the research I've done and experience I do my best to stay away from actavis mylan and nowadays sandoz. I noticed everyone has enjoyed the Roxanne now westward generics amongst hi-tech coming in second/mylan. I have no experience with mylan bup and don't want to take the risk even as mylan has always been a waste imo. I'm not a fan of allergan (actavis) taking over watson so depending on the drug dispenses I most stay away. There are as of now 7 manufacturers of generic buprenorphine hcl 8mg (generic subutex). They are in order of my preferred with not much experience except with brand name: *roxanne (now westward pharma)- 54 411 *hi tech- 8 ^(arrow) *mylan- M924 *teva (allergen/activas own...

how long does zubsolv block opiates

I took a zubsolv at 6:00am this morning, how long will it block opiates ## Hi hollywood, According to the FDA, "Buprenorphine's average elimination half-life from plasma ranges from 24-42 hours, and Naloxone's is anywhere from 2-12 hours". Ref: accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2013/204242s000lbl.pdf With that said, not only will it depend on how much you took, but also how long you've been taking it for.. or if this was just a one time thing for you? However you can also use the half life to try and estimate about how long each dose will be most active in your system, because after the time frame of each half life listed above, you're essentially going to end up with "half of what you originally took" and then "half of that remaining half"...

I need to know the herb I read about in this forum to help with craving sweets and other side effects on Methadone!! PLEASE HELP!!

I was reading in this forum a week or so ago and come upon someone talking about an herb capsule that helps with methadone side effects, craving sweets, sweating and a couple of other side effects. Is there anyone that could please help me with this?? PLEASE PLEASE!! I thought I found the answers to all my prayers. Except now, I can not find the name of this herb for the life of me! I truly appreciate all your help! Thank you and have a wonderful day!! ## Are you sure it was this forum? I have done some searching through our various Methadone posts from users and I can't find anything. I also did some general online searching and I am only finding details to help with withdrawals, when you stop taking it, I am not finding anything that helps while you are still on it. ## I am not co...

suboxone and chronic pain

Im in an addiction treatment program and I'm taking two 8/2 mg strips a day. I've been a slave to opiates for approximately 25 years. I've reached the point of being fed up with being dependent on pain pills to function. my addiction dr suggested trying to find a pain management dr who would treat my chronic pain with suboxone. It does alleviate my pain ...or might I say ..makes me functional and the pain tolerable. is this an actual option? I've done research on this and have gotten mixed reviews on the subject. I trust this site and follow it daily so I'm asking for some information and suggestions. I function better on suboxone than on oxycodone dilaudid or morphine (I've been prescribed them all plus some others) give me some feedback. What should I do or is ...

How long does it take for the withdrawals to go away after taking Suboxone

Hi, I was put on the 8 mg. strips at 3 per day in Oct. 2012..I used 3 per day for a couple of month's.. I quickly tapered down to 1&1/2 of the strip's per day..I got so tired of being on it so I began to stock pile it to withdraw on it at home.. I got down to 1-2 mg.s per day for about the past month and began yesterday (Monday) withdrawing..It's now Tuesday (July 9,2013) and still feel like I did yesterday.. No vomiting nor the big "D" but sweating, lethargic, chilling, feel achy, etc.. How long will it take for the withdrawal's to completely go away..PLEASE answer ASAP & THANKS....Oh, don't scare me about it because I'm all ready an emotional wreck.. ## Hi, Shay! A day or two really isn't enough for your body to process it out and get back t...

white round pill 54 142

Can you break the methadone 10mg into half?? ## Dear Samantha, yes, u can break them in half. It might b easier 2 get a pill cutter. They work great. U can get them at cvs or pretty much any pharmacy. They r sold over the counter. ## Yes as far as I know, personally have broken in half over ten years. Have chronic pain and when I was not in as much pain I often only took half (5 mg.). Contact your pharmacist first, if you call your Dr. they might decrease dose, feeling you don't need as much, I am assuming you take for pain relief. If so may days you will need dose prescribed. Wish that was my problem, after ten yrs. a new doctor said I abused, took other non-prescribed drugs and street pills. Without one blood-urine examination, so not one Dr. Will prescribe me even my meds. For Ga...

if I've been on 20mg of methadone for 3 days, will i get any withdrawls if i stop

I was taking 10mg norco 6× a day for 7 years and wanted off so my sister talked me in to getting on methadone. I've gone for 3 days and been getting 20mg a day but I don't like how it makes me feel. I feel really high on it and feel like I'm gonna pass out. So I don't want to go any more my question is will I have withdrawal from that small amount that I've been on? I've recently been told methadone withdrawal is horrible. ## Hello, Cindy! How are you feeling? You might be better off asking them to lower the dosage, rather than stopping, because yes, you aren't out of the woods for withdrawals, yet. 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 co...

Please let me have the info about the dr that takes Medicaid in louisiana. ## Hello, Sherry! How are you?

Taking small Suboxone doses after stopping Oxycodone

I took my last Oxycodone on Saturday. I've been taking 30 mg for 5 years. How long would withdrawals last if I take tiny pieces of 8 mg Suboxone? How long will I need to do this so that I don't get sick? Thanks ## I have a great deal of experience with induction phase of subs. If you are on Subutex you can start as soon as you feel a little sick. But make sure you have gone at least 24 to 36 hours. Since there is no Naloxone in Subutex it is not like subuxone, Start with a small piece of sub try that and see if you get relief. If you are ok take a little more until you feel straight. Subutex is alot easier to get on then subuxone so make sure you are really sick or you will go through Precipitative Withdrawal Or Hell as I like to call it. Remember, less is more and the oxys will...

Suboxone 8mg/2mg and Roxy 30's

I am currently taking Roxicodone 30's each day. I have suboxone 8mg/2mg to help get off of these. I know the suboxones are the best pill made to help with the withdrawals but I'm wondering if for the firsrt 3 to 5 days when I'm having trouble sleeping and feeling clammy, if i should take like half of a Roxicodone 30 (which i have done in the past), as it helps me to sleep and takes away the clammy feeling? Any other suggestions that you may have? Thanks 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 us...

orange subutex 153 half moon

I use these and they work great. I was on the roxanna pharma ones that were circular in size and these orange ones work way better. Wish I had been on them from the start. ## I just got those oblong orange ones today with Half moon - bottle says its subutex has anyone had these are they better than the white ones ? I don't know do I take them the same ? ## Are these new orange subutex time released? ## Can you please post a picture if you can. Thanks! ## @post #1, Reviews from the following discussion thread do "suggest" that it works better than the white ones as well as the strips: Discuss/orange-subutex-153-half-moon-286803.htm @post #2, No, these one's are not time-released... they are sublingual though. @post #3, Navigating google, I wasn't able to locate any im...

How long after you stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?

My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat cancer but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight that she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward signs of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't ...

orange subutex 153 half moon...

Yes they are subutex 153 half moon and the are shaped like a surf board. They work way better then suboxone strips people keeps saying they cut the strips into millions of peaces if that is the case. You don't need them in the first place. This new one orange subutex 153 half moon surf board shape ones last way longer.. And work great oh my god they work so great! I recommend them to anyone using the white ones or the strips they both suck compared to the new ones. Take it of leave it but its the truth. If you take just a half it will last you two days...unreal. ## For these subutex do they taste disgusting like the strips. As of May 1st our physician decided not to do subutex anymore. Luckily I just had my baby I am worried about breastfeeding. An hate the taste of Suboxone it'...

Pharmacies that carry Buprenorphine made by Mylan or Roxanne 54 411

I've been taking Buprenorphine 8mg for 3 1/2 years now, all of a sudden every pharmacy in our area (that I know of) has switched the manufacturer they are order from, frustrating to me as I just seem to see a difference all though there shouldn't be. Does anyone know a pharmacy that still carries bup mg with the imprint 54 411? ## Same here. Every store is on backorder for the past 7 days. I'm from mid south Pa. ## Same here!!! I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah, and I've been on it for 8 years now. It started a month ago, when the pharmacies were on back order for 54 411, and now it's EVERY TYPE of generic Buprenorphine from every manufacturer. Last week, I went to fill my script, and people were fighting over ONE BROKEN TABLET!!! I wish pharmacies, manufacturers, an...

help! need advice, suboxone stolen!

Hello, I am new to this, but my this is what happened, I really need some feedback so anything would be appreciated. I have been on suboxone for about 6 months now, and have been doing wonderful. Haven't even thought about relapsing. About 2 months into my program my car was broken into in the college parking lot of my school and my suboxone was stolen out of the glove compartment. I filled a police repot and went to the doctor and got a replacment script. I really like my doctor, and she has always been good to me and happy to see me start getting my life back together. On christmas, I went to my granmothers along with my husband, and son, and of course there was some other family present. We had a great evening and came home about 11. Upon getting home, I realized that my subs wer...

Need help finding a doctor that will prescribe methadone for pain management in West Tennessee

I have a unique situation. I am a recovering addict with severe chronic pain. I have really bad scoliosis that's in my neck and back and been in several really bad car wrecks. Lets just say I'm a tree magnet when riding with other people. I have been on suboxone and subutex for the last 2 years. Before then I was going to the methadone clinic on and off for a few years but I couldn't pay for it anymore so I had to stop going. And before and during that I was going to the pain clinic for my back and neck pain. I was prescribed 120 10mg oxycodone and 120 60mg Morphine. Before all that I was Doing like 6 to 10 80mg OxyContin and 6 to 10 200mg morphine a day off the street from age 16-24. This was before I got insurance and found out I had scoliosis at the age of 24 and now abou...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone

I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come off of them, the withdrawal is awful. I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed suboxone. I take anxiety meds too but he wants me to stop. I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them. How do I get him to change it from suboxone to methadone so I can take my anxiety meds? ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about ...

Gabapentin and Suboxone Drug Interaction

I take 4 mgs of suboxone everyday and it's been like 5 hours since I took my suboxone. Is it ok to take a gabapentin? ## The FDA recommends that they usually not be taken together, since they can both cause depression of the central nervous system, which could lead to severe health consequences and has been known to cause death, in some case. Have they both been prescribed for you? Are you on any other medications? ## Yes, Neurontin 10 yrs, Suboxone 4 months and not one problem. There's more to the story. She complaines about everything I do and take and refused to give them to me, yet another Walgreens did. She hates me. And now has cost me 60$ more than I usually paid. I am so frustrated and don't know where to go from here. ## Yes u can, gabapentin is not a controlled sub...

Roxane west-ward 54 411 not working last month?

I have been taking roxane/west-ward pill # 54 411 for over a year now. When I filled my September script, I immediately noticed that it didn't work like before? All other meds the same. It has helped significantly with pain control n sleep. But from the very 1st pill, it didn't help. I know roxane was bought out, but that shouldn't change it? Anyone else notice a difference? I called the manufacturer n they r checking into it. ## I was getting the Roxanne 54 411 for about 2 years and I much preferred those of any of the other ones that were out at that time and then they were bought out by Hikma and the first thing that I noticed was the taste and the effect wasn’t the same for me. Since then I have gotten the Hikma brand about 6 times and it’s weird because if I...
