I have now been on suboxone for a year, I got on it when I found out I was pregnant last January 2013 and I had my beautiful healthy daughter in August 2013 I used to be on subutex during my pregnancy but once I had my daughter I was switched to suboxone. I am on 2 1/2 strips a day and my doctor has been wanting to lower my dose however I have so much going on that I am really nervous to do so. I have lately been dealing with my daughter on my own her father just didn't show me the respect I deserved and he wasn't willing to work to support our daughter so we separated and now I am left on my own with all the finances out daughter and looking for employment which this all just recently happened since the last time I saw my doctor on top of that my daughter has medical issues due to her throat not developing correctly during my pregnancy so we have multiple doctor visits for her monthly and she has special feeding rules and medications to take so I am very overwhelmed. My doctor seems to be harder on me then his other patients some who have been on suboxone for 5+ years so this is making me very nervous to ask him to up my dose from 2 1/2 to 3 strips a day. Does anyone have any advice? I've really been trying to stick it out but I just feel like an emotional wreck and like my body can't take the stress. Please I need advice! How should I ask my doctor to up my dose?

Re: Aaron (# 33)

I may be wrong but I believe you should test+ for opioids when you enter a program. I know this really presents a problem for those of us that are on Suboxone without a doctors supervision. That is one of the reasons I don’t go.

I have contacted several Suboxone clinics that will not accept my medical insurance for treatment from addiction. I was told that because the physician would not take my insurance, I would need to pay cash for my prescriptions because running it through my insurance proposes risk of insurance fraud for my physician.

Does anyone else run into this problem? Does anyone have any advice for me? Thank you so much for reading and replying to my post.

I noticed the Suboxone sublingual 8mg red tablets worked 75 percent better than the peach or orange tablets. Does the color affect the strength?

Re: Nicole (# 44)

I don't believe so. I've never even heard of red tablets. What do they look like? What imprint did the peach and orange have?

Hello.

I have a friend that has touched a lot of Suboxone foil wrappers and quite a few of the Suboxone itself. I'm trying to make a point with my friend is there any way that could have gotten in his system without him orally taking the medication? He said he didn't take the medication but he has been handling a lot of foils and some strips is this possible? The doctor said he had a slight trace of it in his system she had given him a number and it was 35 I'm not even sure what that means. Thank you I'm hoping someone can help me.

Pete Says:

My name is Pete, and I'm 48 hours without any Subutex. I was up to 2 a day for several years and a few months ago drop down to one a day and several weeks ago drop down to 2 mg a day and the other night I had a bright idea not to take it anymore. I'm in pretty rough shape but it's not the worst I've ever been. I was sober 22 years from 1988 till whenever I picked up about 8 years ago probably closer to 10 now I just need to get off this stuff I was hoping I could talk to somebody I'm hurting quite a bit

Re: Ken (# 3)

Hi Ken.
I'm not sure what type of insurance you have of course. But I do know a lot of psychiatrists are writing for subutex and Suboxone. And I've heard nothing but good things about the psychiatrists dispensing subutex and Suboxone if you can go that route they truly help you with more than just the medication. I hope this helps you out some. If you have anymore questions let me know. Wishing you the best can. Have a great day.

Re: Virginia (# 41)

Hello.... When I went to my doctor I tested opiates and I also tested Suboxone in my urine (the ingredient of the bupe). And I had told them my sister had been visiting from Florida and she had given me two Suboxone strips and had me wait x amount of hours and then I tried it and that's what made my decision that I wanted to be on the Suboxone and not the opiates any longer. They said they're not the drug police and they don't care what's in your system at all until you start the program - then after that they care. Meaning the only thing that should be in your system after you sign the Suboxone doctors program. Just don't have anything else in your system but Suboxone. So they don't care what's in your system as long as you're honest with them. But I did go around the corner and say my sister had given me the Suboxone. He was okay with it. And on my chart he said I'm not going to put your sister down I'm just going to say you bought them on the street so if anything would ever happen then your sister wouldn't be involved. That was pretty nice actually considering. Try something like that, I hope it helps.

Re: Pete (# 47)

Pete, I placed myself on Suboxone and I very carefully lowered my dosage every seven days by halves, until I was taking slithers of Suboxone. I am now opiate and Suboxone free. In my experience, you need to cut down slowly and carefully. You can do this!

I hope someone told you the dangers of taking Xanax while on Suboxone; they both depress your breathing

What the hell us wrong with you?! Yeah no wonder your daughter has throat issues because mom was selfish AF and couldn’t quit her addiction for 9 months. Jesus Christ what doctor let you stay on this while pregnant?! I had an issue with opioids, 2 weeks on zubsolv and I was done. There’s absolutely NO REASON you need to be on this as long as you have. You are one selfish mother. No sympathy here.

Who in the hell do you think you are? You shouldn't judge. You're not her you know nothing about her situation but only what she has told us. There's only one judge and it's not you. You're rude and crude. And you responded to a really old post. lol

I have been on it for 10 years. I vowed on my Dad’s death bed o would stop taking the 10 hydros at a time. I was on strips.
I am now on subutex because iof my seizure history.
3 / 8 MF strips is a LOT. They won’t make u feel any better as the med has a ceiling.
I am on 2/ 8 mg tablets that disolve. Enough fir me especially when Ion long term.

Do not up it if using past point of detoxing!! Not worth the hassle. Plus you’ll look drug seeking. Which is exactly what it is. They have found optimal dose to be 16 mg.

Hope this helps and good luck

Hi, I realize this post is old, but maybe someone will stumble upon it as I did and will read what I have to say about your situation with Suboxone. You are not alone in the situation you find yourself in. Let me just say......Suboxone has saved many lives, including my own life. I took Suboxone for many years and it took me a very long time to realize a person does not need anymore than 1 Suboxone a day. Less is more. After that 1 Suboxone, the others are pretty much wasted. You are not going to get high or feel any type of euphoria taking Suboxone. Many people believe wholeheartedly that they need more & more to function. This is false. It's the psychological part of it that has you feeling this way. I can promise you......you do not want to take more than you are already taking. Honestly, in my opinion.....you are already taking too high of a dose. I'm living proof that 1 Suboxone strip is sufficient for almost everyone taking Suboxone.
