ARE SUBUTEX EVER ORANGE AND ROUND WITH HALF MOON AND 26 ON GENERIC 20 MG TABLETS? ## Hello, Mary! How are you? No, Actavis actually lists this as being a 20mg generic Adderall tablet, which is most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Here we go mine are not mine are 8mg each don't you ask the Dr. ## I got a square cube with 4 pieces on its white clear looking is that suboxen

10 mg methadone for bad toothache

Will 10 mg methadone work to relieve bad toothache pain? ## Hello, Eddie! How are you? It is an opiate analgesic, so it can alleviate pain just like the other opiates that are available. The FDA classifies this as 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. However, you shouldn't take it, unless your doctor has prescribed it for you, due to the danger of overdose if you aren't opiate tolerant and it's great addictive potential. Is there anything else I can help with? ## All methadone should be burned 3 times and buried. It's addictive and does nothing for pain. No more methadone should ever be produced

Traveling with liquid methadone on a cruise ship

I would like to know if anyone has had any issues recently with carrying their liquid Methadone on a cruise ship? A friend is going around family that do not know she is prescribed this medication. She is flying to the port first. Any help or tips are truly appreciated! ## Hi Traveler, I'm not sure I understand the concern about your friend going around family doesn't know she is prescribed methadone. Is your friend capable of causing them any harm in doing so? Regarding issues carrying prescriptions onto a cruise ship, do cruise ships treat you like TSA does at the airport for carry-on items like medication? If not, it sounds like you shouldn't have to worry about it at all. If they do act as TSA does, as long as you have your doctor's prescription (or even a doctor...

Do you have to wait to eat or drink after suboxone?

Hello, everyone! I have heard from different people that they can eat and drink right after taking subs. Others have said 2 wait a half hour. Does anyone know which is true? Different Drs say different things. Thank u 4 your input. ## Hi cats, my dr. says don't eat, drink or smoke 15mins before or after taking sub but its alright to rinse with water before taking. ## answerd twice but both needed to be reviewed. ## Hey Jolter, would it b ok if I give u my e mail address when I get home? So, we can just talk as friends. ## Its ok with me but they won't let you send an email address on this site. ## Hi Jolter, I'll just try when I get home. Have a good one. ## Hi Cats, I don't know if you're still looking for anymore opinions on the matter, but I've also heard diff...

How Can I Clean Suboxone Out Of My System

I have to go to my p.o. tomorrow & take a urine analysis. How can i pass a urine test for suboxone if i only took an 8th of one 2 days ago? ## There is really no guaranteed way to do so. The Buprenorphine in the Suboxone is usually detectable in urine for approximately 4 to 5 days, after last dosing. It requires a special test to detect, as it is not included in the standard tests. The time frame can also vary from person to person, due to various individual factors, such as you metabolism, overall health, fluid intake, activity levels and etc. Are there any other comments or questions? ## I took a half of a quarter of suboxone yesterday and have to go to probation tomorrow morning... Will I be clean? ## They have to have a special test for suboxins so it's shouldn't show up...

Stopping Methadone

I'm on 75 mg methadone and I want to stop on my own because it seems my counselor wants me on forever. Can I do it myself being on an anxiety med? ## T Chang, it is very difficult 4 a lot of people 2 taper off of methadone on their own. It should b done slowly and under supervision. I was on (110) of methadone and got down to (24). I was in such bad withdrawals, I thought I was going 2 die. I ended up at my Doctors in tears. He put me on suboxone that day and I felt so much better. Anyway, I REALY WOULDNT recommend u doing it your self. ## P.S. U have the right 2 get off the methadone if u want. Just let you're Doctor or counselor know when u r ready. They will taper u down the right way. So, u won't go through bad withdrawals. ## Are you on methadone or have you come off it...

Hexagon orange pill with N8 one side and an M inside a box

Wondering what kind of pill this is? It has an M inside a box on one side and N8 on the other side. It's also orange and hexagon-shaped. ## Hello Barry, I hope you are doing well. I have found some information on your pill. The imprint of the M inside of a box is the mark of the company Mallinckrodt. I was able to find the manufacturers website and fortunately they have pictures of all of their generic medicines. The only pill that matches your description is an orange, hexagonal (6 sided) tablet with imprint 8N M, indicating Buprenorphine and Naloxone Sublingual Tablets. It looks like the marking is actually 8N, easily read upside down as N8. (NDC 0406-8020). Inactive Ingredients: - Acesulfame Potassium - Anhydrous Citric Acid - FD&C Yellow No. 6 - Anhydrous Lactose - Lactose M...

can i take methadone with adderall

can you take methadone while taking adderall? ## Hi Danny, Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between Methadone and Adderall. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist, but my sources state that every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate. On a side note, there are interactions found between certain foods or drinks and both of your medications: Regarding Methadone, it states that co-administration with grapefruit juice may increase the plasma concentrations of the drug. (So you'll want to try and avoid drinking this when your taking methadone). Regarding Adderall, it states to generally avoid alcohol, as it may potentiate the cardiovascular effects of amphetamines (although the exact mechanism of interaction is unk...

subutex blocks other opiates like suboxone does

I was dope sick and was given a subutex. I hear it's just like the suboxone so it's a blocker or would I feel another opiate a few hours later? ## Hello, Bree! How are you? No, Subutex does not contain the Naloxone that is in Suboxone that neutralizes other opiates. It only contains Buprenorphine. The FDA lists this medication as being 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. However, if you have an addiction problem, I strongly urge you to see a doctor and get proper medical help. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Vernon you do not know what you are talking about at all. Yes subutex blocks opiates just as well as suboxone. The bup which is in both med...

Addiction to pain med

My son has a very severe drug addiction to pain med. He has turned to one of the strongest on the street and is now using needles. He has really hit bottom and wants to quit. Someone told him about Suboxone and said that it would help him to break his addiction. Is it a safe drug to use to quit, or does it only replace one addiction for another? Can a family practitioner prescribe the drug if it is safe? ## I have taken Suboxone for almost 3 years now. It has saved my life. I do consitter it a wonder drug. I never used the needle, but I did have a nasty Oxycottin addiction. I would recomend Suboxone to anyone who has a opiate addiction. They have nothing to loose but the addiction. A normal family doctor can not perscribe Suboxone. He has to be a addictionoligist. Some family doctors ca...

Methadone to Suboxone - How long?

Wanted to say I just came out of precipitated withdrawal! What holy hell! I have been on methadone for 6 years taking 115 mlg daily & got myself down to 50 mlg for 2 weeks, waited more than 72 hours, then took 2mlg suboxone. I was fine. Not better, just not worse. Following my doc's orders, I took another 2mlg 90 mins later. Ok, then took another 2mlg after 90 min and oh my god. Almost instantly threw me into precipitated withdrawal! This was to say the least horrible ×1000. Don't want this to happen again but determined to switch to subs. When can I try again without going through hell?! Please help! ## Unfortunately there is really no specific time frame as everyone is different. The best way to tell when your body is ready is to make sure you are in full blown withdr...

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...

new orange subutex 153 half moon

I can say from experience these new 153 are no good...I cant say it more clearly - They suck!! If you depend on relief from your daily dose of subutex like i do, then be ready for a major LET DOWN ## Soooooooooooo True. I don't know what to do I hate these. ## Yea I think they suck, white ones so much better ## I just got these too and I am experiencing the same thing! Someone please help! ## Horrible, i feel like they giving me sugar pills, seriously feel like they're not 8mg. I have cold turkey detoxed before and i really feel like im withdrawing slowly over this month that ive had them. ## Sorry to hear about everyone's experience with these tablets... Reading all these reviews, including many on other related threads here, it almost seems to me as if the manufacturer (Ac...

Did They Stop Making The Roxane 54 411 Buprenorphine?

I have been getting the generic Subutex Roxane brand 54 411 Buprenorphine tablets for months now from Walmart pharmacy and the past two times I've gotten my prescription filled there, I was given a different generic made by Hi Tech with an 8 and an arrow. I asked them why the change because those little tablets just are not the same and they said the Roxane ones could not be ordered. I called around to other pharmacies I have gotten my prescription filled at before also and was also told that the Mylan M 924s can no longer be ordered either. What's going on with the Roxane and Mylan Buprenorphine tablets? Did they stop making them or is there some kind of shortage? I had the choice of getting the small Hi Tech tablets which seem alot less potent than the Roxane or the Actavis 15...

Generic Buprenorphine 54 411 vs M 924

I've been going to a clinic for almost a year now and each time I get prescribed 8mg Subutex. When I would fill my prescription I would receive 54 411 white tablets. Today when I picked it up I got M 924 white tablets. The only difference I've found is the manufacturer. The manufacturer for the 54 411 is ROXANE and for the M 924 is MYLAN. Are they pretty much the same pill just different imprint/manufacturer? ## I'm trying to figure out the same issue!! ## Yes, these tablets are just manufactured by different companies, which so very common with generics. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction. It has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and c...

Use of buprenorphine for pain after stopping narcotics

I have been on percocet (10mg) 5xday, Oxycontin (80mg x2 & 40mgx1 a day), Motrin 800mg 4x a day, Soma 350mg 4x a day for YEARS. I WANT OFF - how do I control the chronic pain that started all this? I have read that using buprenorphine in a different way than in Saboxin (which I would want to use for withdrawal) is not legal in the U.S. but used in other countries - is there something I can do/try? I do PT, I have my own TENS mach., relaxation tech, I walk, lost weight, go to counselling... What can I do? ## Transdermal Bup now approved by FDA - ask your doc ## Thank you for your response - I have heard the same from other sites... unfortunatly,Dr.'s response is to put me on Methadone - I've known other people who say getting off of that is just as bad,if not worse.I'm lo...

Generic subutex/buprenorphine. Ranking from best to worst..

This is for people who actually take Subutex for the intended purpose for which it is used. So if you actually take the medication sublingually, this thread will help you. I have been taking buprenorphine for three and a half years now. This is what I have found: (8mg) Best: Actavis 153/half moon (orange) Middle: Roxanne 54/411 (white) Worst: Hi-Tech 8/arrow Again, this is for people who take medication as prescribed. You can actually break the medication in half and put it and the front of your lip like dip & chewing tobacco. It will take longer for it to dissolve like this but you will get much much more of the bupe. ## Does keeping the leftover saliva\bupe mixture under your toung for longer periods help at all? I try not to swallow the bupe-liva for 30 min.+...but it's a pai...

Subutex / Buprenorphine and oversleeping

Does anyone other than myself have trouble with sleeping too long when taking Buprenorphine? ## Hello, Allan! How are you? Do you mean it makes you more tired/fatigued so you sleep more than usual? If so, that isn't uncommon. Buprenorphine is classified as an opiate, by the FDA, and that is a common side effect of such drugs, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. What dose do you take? It may be slightly too high for you. ## I usually just sleep a full 8 hours.
