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...

Severe sublocade injection side effect

Hi there. A good friend of mine has had very severe side effects after his 4th sublocade injection. He has been terribly ill since 11/5. He has had non stop nausea and vomiting, sweating, as well as a plethora of other symptoms. He has been totally incapacitated, and will not return to the Dr. Has anyone else had severe side effects? My friend is currently in the Portland area, but could travel if anyone is aware of a medical professional that can help him. Thanks so much! ## I'm sorry to hear about your friend and hope he gets the help he needs. I was curious about that injection. I don't understand how that could help everybody when everybody needs different dosages. ## Thanks for the reply. He's been quite ill for a while. ## For me its more mental than anything, I was ad...

Sublocade - A New Kind Of Suboxone

So there's a new kind of SUBOXONE out and it's called SUBLOCADE. It's a once a month injection done by a medical professional that lasts ALL month. So no more having to take it sublingually (under the tongue) daily anymore. I just found out about this last week and was wanting anyone's input about it. I don't know how I feel about it. What if it doesn't work ALL month and on week 3 you start feeling like s***? Can you go back to the doctor and get another shot or will they just give you a couple sublingual suboxone to make it through till the next week? I guess it's a pretty big dissolvable thing that slowly releases about 2mg a day into your bloodstream. Once again, I'm not sure how i feel about that. What if something happens and it ALL gets released at...

A Sublocade users opinion

I took opioids for 20 years, got in trouble with law mid 2019, and was sentenced to drug court late 2019 after serving 6 months for unrelated charges. So when I got out I was "clean" and free from opioid dependence for the first time in many years. However the mental addiction was still there. Even though I was subjected to 2 drug tests a week, I would still take opioids occasionally. I would get away with most of the tests, but after 9 months of using about 2 times a month I finally got caught. They gave me an ultimatum. So I chose medical assisted treatment. I got on Sublocade, even though I wasn't physically dependent. That was 4 months ago. It works good to cut my cravings, but I still have days where I will have them. The injection is different from the films. With the ...

Sublocade Injection

Has anyone had the Sublocade injection? I'm seriously thinking about switching from the films to the monthly injection. ## I haven't tried it, but do think it would be interesting to read how the shot compares to the films or sublingual tablets with regards to efficacy, bioavailability, duration of effects and so forth. According to the manufacturer, "In a 24-week clinical study, people who received Sublocade plus counseling were more likely to have weeks without opioid use compared with people who received a placebo shot (an inj. with no medication) plus counseling." Source: sublocade.com Also, there are some people who take Subutex (buprenorphine) for pain management instead of opioid cravings even though it's not specifically indicated for such use. I'd like t...
