how long does suboxone stay in system

How long before suboxone wears off? I have been on a maintenance dose for 2 months. 16mg a day. My last does was thursday of 12mg and today is monday still can't feel the opiates I have been taking since then????? how long before this stuff wears off?? ## After that many days, it is definitely out of your system. The problem is more than likely due to the fact that you've gone from taking a very strong opiate to much milder ones now, so they aren't having any effect. Why did you stop taking it? ## I stopped the Suboxone because I was very stupid!! I had the urge to get high...after 6 days of eating about 60 oxocodone 5mg. and 10mg. I stopped!! I didn't get high at all!! it just made me want to kill myself!! The only thing that I got out of all that was all the uglyness b...

pharmacies that will fill my subutex in wv

Pharmacies in WV that will fill my subutex that aren't to pricey and they have to be accepting new clients. ## Good luck, most people are having to drive to Pa or DC to fill their prescriptions. Email me {edited for privacy} ## I'm in need of a new pharmacy. The one I was going to quit carrying them. If anyone knows of any around wv or pa please let me know. ## I live in WV and go to PA to the doc. But I can't find a pharmacy in either state to fill a prescription for Buprenorphine 8mg tabs. Any info on possible pharmacies that carry these would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! ## I am having the same problem. Did. You find somewhere to full your prescription? ## Can anyone send me the same info? I'm about to go to PA and live in WV. Would like to have several ideas ahead...

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...

WV pharmacy that fills a PA subutex prescription

I went to a doctor in PA that prescribed me subutex. I went to a few pharmacies in the area (Washington, Pa) but they only carried Suboxone. Does anyone know where I can get subutex filled in Washington, Pa or close to there? I live in Morgantown, Wv & would rather get them filled in this area if that's possible. I have a WV ID, but a PA. Subutex prescription. ## I have the same problem! Script written in Washington, PA but I have a WV ID. I live in Mon county, WV so the closer the better! I drove over 2 hours south last month for my medicine. ## Did you have any luck finding a pharmacy? I'm in the same situation, I live in WV and go to a pa Dr and I need a pharmacy asap! Please, any info would be greatly appreciated. In need where was you went to 2hrs south if you can say o...

NEED TO FIND A PHARMACY THAT FILLS SUBUTEX ASAP!!!

I have been on subutex for 9 months now. But i have a very big problem next month k mart pharmacy will no longer carry subutex. I live in the tri cities in tn. I have called about 35 pharmacies around they either do not take new people getting subutex or do not carry it at all. I have no insurance i found 1 that cost 340 which is way more than the 215 i paid at k mart. Also some pharmacies I know only carry the small ones which to me do not work as good as the bigger ones. Huge difference i go back the 8th next month so if there is anyone that knows of a good pharmacy in my area your help would be greatly appreciated ## Hello, Scott! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. However, if you've called the pharmacies, then you've likely not actually received ...

suboxone & phentermine

Does anyone knows if taking Phentermine (diet pill) and Suboxone is harmful in anyway? ## I'm not finding any contraindications listed that states they cannot be used together. However, this site is not medical professionals, so you should check with your doctor or pharmacist to be on the safe side. Is your doctor aware that you are taking both? ## No problem taking the two together. I have been on Suboxone for two years, and my doctor just started me on Phentermine. Also, I checked with the pharmacist before filling. If you have heart trouble or very high blood pressure, you should be monitored however. ## I know this question is old, but for anyone who may be looking for the answer. Yes you can take suboxone & phentermine together. Ive gained 45lbs on the suboxone & I have...

Roxane Buprenorphine

I had the same issue. I called CVS today and was told if i bring the paper script in, they will order the Roxanne 54 411 vs. the Mylans. There is a difference and I don't care what anyone says. Usually those who don't take the RX have the most advise. I don't know what is going on with ROXANNE BUP., but I bet its about money. The pharmacies give addicts crap cuz who cares....Stand up and order the Roxanes and tell them the other ones don't work! ## It is known that the inactive ingredients do affect some people, and can cause side effect issues. Science Translational Medicine, publishers of Science magazine, published an article on this on March 13, 2019. This article mainly covers the experience of adverse reactions, which in turn, could make it seem a medication isn...

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...

Sore tongue and mouth from Suboxone

I need some advice. I started taking Suboxone films last November. I am on 20 mg. a day. Ever since I started these films I noticed that underneath my tongue became sore, like it swelled up and had little bumps underneath. Per my pharmacist, I tried putting it in between my cheek and gum on the bottom, but the same thing happened. It's getting to the point that if I eat anything hot or spicy, it stings like crazy. Even the suboxone stings a little. I don't want to get my whole mouth sore, so I am keeping it underneath the tongue. In the morning my tongue is swelled and it's difficult to talk right, especially saying "s". I told my doctor when it first started happening, but he didn't think much of it. Anyone else have this problem? What should I do? ## It is diff...

Methadone 10mg Asc 116

WHAT COMPANY MAKES THESE ASC 116 AND WHEN DID THEY COME OUT ON THE MARKET? ## January, 2012 ## That date is correct and the manufacturer is Ascend Laboratories, LLC. ## What is the difference between this pill and the 10mg methadone white round pill labled 54/142 and scored on the other side, is it just the manufacturer? I usually get the 54/ 142 and pay about $22 for 150 I had to go to a different pharmacy this month and they gave me the ascertain 116 ones and charged me $90 for the same 150!! I mean I don't have insurance but this seems outrageous. Could it maybe just have been the pharmacy I went to? Also, I want to make sure there wont be a difference in my pain management on these pills. Thanks ## hey these are made by ascend labs and there relatively new but they work fine if ...

Methadone 40mg wafer vs 4 methadone 10mgs

Is taking 4methadone 10mgs the same as a 40mg wafer? It doesn't seem to last as long or as strong. ## If they are regular release, then they should work the same. However, medications can be funny, so that might not be true of Methadone. Have you checked with your doctor? There may be something else affecting it that I am not aware of…does anyone else know more? ## Depending on the generic. They can legally have 10 to 15% less methadone in them. The Mallinckrodts are the best.I 'm A pain management patient in mobile AL. At present doctors are running scared. I can only get Percodan regular, not time released. Only lasts me 3 hours on 20 mg.

Round orange 970 suboxone

My pharmacy recently switched to a round orange Suboxone with the numbers 970 on it and it burns my mouth pretty bad and doesn't seem to be as effective as my old ones. Has anyone else had this problem? Why does it burn? ## Hello OhioKing, Sorry to hear that you are having so much trouble with your medication. I was taking a look into it and I've read a couple of other users that said they had a similar experience. It seems that most of these stories boiled down to either an allergic reaction or that their doctor had them taking too many dosages a day and that in the end the doctor had them go from 4x a day to 2x a day. Either way I suggest that you consult your doctor immediately in case it turns out to be an allergic reaction to the medication. Burning of the mouth is definite...

Generic Subutex/Buprenorphine - Which manufacturer do you prefer?

Hello All, I recently just got changed from suboxone to subutex due to a pretty bad allergic reaction to the naloxone in the suboxone. Basically my question for everyone is which generic do you guys prefer my pharmacist can order any kind for me so Im at the moment just got the Roxanne ones 8mg they are white round tablets. This is my first day using and am already noticing my migraines are starting to subside not fully but starting too. So yeah if anyone has any suggestions please let me know all the ups and downs that you guys have been experiencing thanks! Good luck to one and all! D ## I may not have personal experience with either of these generics, but I did want to go ahead and link you to a couple other threads here with more information on other Subutex reviews: Discuss/can-sub...

Sublocade not working?

I am on my 2nd injection so it has been 6 weeks. I was on 24 mg of buprenorphine daily and I 100% feel like I am in withdrawal every single day. My legs hurt my body aches, my nose and my eyes are watering, I feel hot and cold all the time like I cannot regulate my body temperature and I just do not know what to do... ## You may require a dosage adjustment, the manufacturer recommends a starting dose of 300mgs monthly, for the first 2 months, then adjustments should be made, after that, according to the patient's response. It should be dosed no less than 26 days apart, and delays of up to 2 weeks are usually insignificant therapeutically. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry m...

Looking for a doctor in wv or close that prescribes subutex

I know people in wv who go to pa to get scripts of subutex and sell them. They wont give up any info about the doctor they go too because they don't want anyone else in the area out selling them. I am an addict who needs help. I have researched subutex and I feel that this med will help me. I am tired of these pain killers killing my pocket. If anyone has any info on a good doctor in wv or surrounding states please let me know. ## I may not have a personal doctor I can refer you to, but posted below is a buprenorphine physician locator showing 122 Physicians and 16 Treatment Programs found in the State of West Virginia: buprenorphine.samhsa.gov/pls/bwns_locator&one_state=WV With such a list, there's bound to be at least a handful of really good doctors you can turn to for Su...

Are There Any Doctors That Take Medicare For Suboxone?

I am on suboxene to get off medications for back injury. The doctor I'm going to charges $200.00 per visit plus the cost of the medications. Does anyone know if doctor's accept Medicare for the office visits? ## It actually depends on the laws of your state, some states have Medicare programs that cover it, some don't. Have you tried checking to see if the coverage is there? If they do, they may also direct you to doctor's that accept it. ## I've been trying to find out if doctors in Ohio, zip code 44471 take Medicare.

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...
