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...

Need a doctor who prescribes suboxone in Indiana - i am on medicaid. ## While I'm not aware of which doctors accept medicaid, I can provide you with links to help you locate specific pain management doctors within your local area.

I need help. I live in Knoxville Tennessee. ## Hello. I've talked to a couple doctors and I remember 2 or 3 of them but I did not put any information down, I forgot. I just need to know which suboxone doctors are cheapest on a monthly basis? Can you please let me know their names and the prices per month? Thank you. {edited for privacy} ## I am very sorry, but there is no available database of doctors current fee schedule that can be posted for you, I'm also not away of any free ones for the original poster. Joey, can you contact them, again, to ask? Suboxone is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth.

Dizziness and vomiting from Suboxone

Hi Guys. Tuesday night was the last time I had taken opiates. I was taking around 480mg Codiene per day. Yesterday (Wednesday) at 9am I took 4mg Suboxone, then an hour later I felt dizzy and sick. At around 6pm I took the last 4mg and felt the same. Today (Thursday), the pharmacist gave me the whole 8mg to take at once. Well, once again, after an hour the dizziness was very mild but the sickness was horrendous and I couldn't stop. I can only describe it as being on a fair ride and not being able to get off. My pharmacist said that this could be due to me starting the subs too soon (*not sure what this means). My question is - has anyone else suffered this, and if so, how long am I looking at? I've had to take time off work, and Christmas is in a few days. This is very new to me ...

Suboxone chat room

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...

Suboxone helps but I cannot stop taking it

Suboxone helps, but it's been a month and i feel like I can't stop. I was taking a lot of opiates before. Does anyone think that's why I'm 24 and been on it for 4 years? I'm ok as long as i take 8 mg every 24 hr. I can't take pain very well. I guess that's why my problem was so long. How long should I be on Suboxone? ## Well, to be quite honest with you, no one gets off of Suboxone in a month, things just don't work that fast to beat an addiction, especially when it was very severe and lasted for a long period of time. In most cases, it takes about 2 years or so. Are you trying to self-treat, or are you in an actual program? ## Dear Blumist, I was addicted 2 Oxy 4 almost 11 years. I've since been on suboxone 4 almost 8 years now. I don't plan on g...

medicaid louisiana doctors that are suboxone licensed

I had been on Suboxone for almost 8 years. In my opinion it is a wonder drug compared to all the opiates that the pain clinics are all too willing to prescribe .I have been out of my Suboxone for a week & a half. I feel like I am dying. I can not sleep. I have a 5 month old new baby boy. I can hardly pick him up due to the pain that I am in. I hurt all over. i have been so nauseated. My doctor who 's visits were cash bases only, however medicaid would take care of the actual prescription of 60, 8 mg. At one time I WAS PRESCRIBED 4, 8 MG SUBS A DAY. i WOULD KILL JUST TO HAVE A QUARTER RIGHT NOW TO FEEL LIKE NORMAL AGAIN. My doctor decided that he no longer wants to deal with any one with medicaid due to the fact that his office does not "LIKE TO HANDLE PRIOR AUTHORIZATIONS ...

how long after taking a 1/4 suboxone can you take a Percocet?

I took a 1/4 of a suboxone a friend had given me around 6:00 pm today. How long do I have to wait until I can take a Percocet for pain and not get it and have it work? ## 1/4 of a suboxone isn't a very detailed description how many MG's was the strip?(i know this is an old comment but whatever) ## I know this topic is a few weeks old, but I do agree with josh (post #1) in that the answer to the original thread question would largely depend on how many milligrams of Suboxone you're taking. Based on some other cases I've seen, I'd take a shot in the dark and say it may be up to a week before it's out of your body. Although several personal factors such as age, weight, diet, etc, could also influence the excretion rate. I hope this info helps! Please post back if yo...

Suboxone withdrawal day 40 still in paws

Day 40 off suboxone. Rls, or rather restless body syndrome, hot flashes & I feel like I'm 500 pounds. Sux! Just wondering how much longer this s*** is gonna stick around? I know everyone is different. It just helps reading people's stories/experience. Also once you felt better , was it like waking up one day & just not feeling the wd's anymore? ## Somebody talk to me PLEASE! Lol. Feeling lonely. I am a 33 y/o female, been on subs almost 4 years. This withdraw has been the most terrible experience of my life! I need support. My family/friends just don't understand. I don't have any one to talk to.

How to get my Suboxone Rx cheaper

My wife decided to change our health care plan to save me a few bucks and apparently they fast talked her or she didn’t catch it all.. but long story short, while speaking with Cigna / marketplace / healthcare.gov, they told my wife and I that our copay would simply jump to $40 from $20... OK, I can live with that, at least I thought, until I went to fill my meds today. Apparently we don't have a copay ... well let me rephrase that: it doesn’t kick in till we pay our $8000 deductible. I have never heard of a deductible having to be met to get meds (visits to docs, etc, ok). But I been paying 20 bucks for 2 years straight for my meds and today I was quoted for one 30 day supply a price that exceeded what 2.5 years of my previous medicine costed me.. $500 plus dollars!

Suboxone and urine test

I know Suboxone does not show up in a standard test. But the job I am applying for may do an extended test. I have a prescription from my Doc and I am on 16mg a day which by the way is wonderful. But I was wondering if anyone knows how long till my urine's clean? ## Suboxone's half life is between 24 to 37 hours depending on your metabolism in other words the amount of buprenorphine will decrese by half after that time elapses 8 to 4, 4 to 2 and so on... ## if you have a legit prescription for the stuff, it doesn't matter if you test positive for it. you are legally allowed to be taking that substance. if you have a prescription for morphine you can't get fired for testing positive for opiates. ## The above poster is correct, if you are legally taking it as prescribed by...

How to take orange Suboxone pill with 54 375

How do you administer the orange Suboxone pill imprinted with 54 375? Do you swallow it or put it under your tongue? ## Just put under your tongue like a strip but I only put one at a time ## Yes, this is a sublingual tablet that is intended to be dissolved under the tongue, however, there is no harm if it is accidentally swallowed, it will just take a bit longer to be absorbed and start to have an effect. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Actually bruprenorphine has almost no effect if swallowed. That iz wby they warn not to talk while taking sublingually , and why some people think the strips are stronger. Its...

how long after taking a suboxone can you use morphine 60mg

I took a 8mg Suboxone 48 hours ago. I have a 60mg morphine to take for pain. Will the effects of the morphine work or do I need to wait longer? ## Hello, Shantastic! How are you? It usually takes about 72 hours, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Yeah in theory it's supposed to last 72 hours, but that's the bupronorphine. The naloxone only lasts for a couple of hours. The bupe lasts longer to keep your tolerance up and your opiate receptors "busy" so other opiates will (again in theory) not have anything to bind to, making them ineffective...

How long after taking a Suboxone can you take an opiate?

I have been on 8 mg/2mg Suboxone strips for 1 year. I am having a tooth (back molar) extraction in the morning. I used my Suboxone strip this morning & the tooth extraction is at 9:30 am tomorrow. If I don't use another Suboxone strip before the extraction, would I be able to take Hydrocodone after my surgery? I don't want to get sick, but I am terrified of going through this surgery with no pain meds. Please help. ## should be 48 hrs to alow to leave your system ## So if I took a 10 mg Hydrocodone after not taking a Suboxone for 24-28 hours, will it throw me into withdrawals? That would do me in after surgery to end up in wd's. ## Sorry to say but 8 mg of Suboxone is way stronger then any hydrocodone. It would take a year for you to even feel the effects.

how do i get suboxone to show up if im using a mask to cover thc

Ok, I'm on suboxone (two 8 milligram pills per day). I have to pass a drug test but have suboxone show up. I'm using a mask drink to cover up THC. How can I still get the suboxone to show up? ## Take a sub put in the urine and shake it around till it dissolves then your good ## Do NOT put suboxone in your urine it WILL test POSITIVE for OPIATES. Suboxone is a synthetic opiate (the bupe part at least) and when processing through your system it like neutralizes or something but either way it processes and never tests positive for opiates UNLESS you do what girl below said to do, put the sub itself in urine. It obviously does not metabolize! My doctor is the one who informed me of this not some Jane Doe on the internet. ## They don't work, what's in your system will show up...

How Long Do I Have To Wait To Take Suboxone After Taking Oxycodone

How Long Do I Have To Wait Take Suboxone after taking 10mg oxycodone so i dont go into precipitated withdrawals? ## You have to be in full withdrawal from all other opiates, before you can safely take Suboxone. Learn more Suboxone details here. The precise time that happens can vary from person to person, depending on their own body, how much of the given drug(s) they were taking and other factors. It's a very fine line, because taking it too soon can throw you into withdrawals, but you have to be full in them, before it's safe. Are there any other questions or comments? ## how long does it take oxycodone to be metabolized by the body after taking 10 mgs one time. ## I'm taking suboxone can I take a 15 mg of morphine I took it befor the sub and only asking because I still ne...
