How long after you stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?

My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat cancer but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight that she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward signs of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't ...

False Positive for Benzos

I take suboxone and paxil. When my doctor gave me a drug test it came back positive for Benzos. I dont no why please please help me.... ## Hi Mandy, Although I haven't located any details confirming the possibility of a false positive for Benzos from either of those medications, I do believe that it's still a strong possibility due to the faulty standard drug tests they use today. A lot of these standardized drug tests have a fairly high false-positive response, where it seems as though anything is likely to show up. To my knowledge, false positives are known to occur on them anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time. Have you asked your doctor about getting re-tested? I hope you can get this sorted out! These false reports just put too much stress on patients who are simply taking the...

my prescription was stolen now what?

Me and my wife recently had a birthday party for my son. After the party I went into the bathroom to take one of my suboxone and i noticed the perscription was stolen. I have not reported it to the police or my doctor yet. I am not sure what to do. I dont want to ask my doctor for a replacement script because I dont know if I can get kicked out of the program. This program is the last chance for me to get my life straight and it is working so far but I am scared if I dont replace them that I run a risk of relapsing. My next appointment to get my regular refill is three weeks away. Has anybody ever delt with a situation like this or have any real advise on what to do? ## hi need help in ohio'...the best advice i can give you- is to try to find someone who you can buy a few from..enou...

How Long Does One Suboxone Strip Stay In Your Urine

took 1 8mg suboxone strip - how long does it stay in urine? ## A Suboxone is not an opiate it's an opiate blocker; therefore I wouldn't judge how long a suboxone stays in your system based on how long opiates stay in your system because it's not an opiate. From what I've heard and read and all the websites I checked it seems the average is as little as 4 but as many as 7 days that it stays in your urine but only 3 days in your saliva. 7 days is a lot, it seemed like the average was 5-6 so I would go with that. Although to be honest the best would be not to do it at all especially if you have to worry about it not being in your urine, which kind of implies that you have something going on where you can't have it in your urine. So stay away from it all until you are ab...

Maximum dose of Suboxone/Subutex & chronic pain

What is the maximum dose of suboxone or subutex when you have severe pain? ## What is the maximum daily dose of subutex? I'm taking it to wean off of opiate pain killers but may need to stay on it for chronic pain. My doctor has me taking 2mg up to 6 times a day, but it feels like too much and I feel sick at 6 mg. I can't imagine taking more. Any answers would be helpful... thanks. ## If u have true clinical pain suboxone will not work it is for opiate detox only. It is an opiate blocker which will in turn allow your brain to make its own dopamine. ## feelinbettergoinbroke is wrong, suboxone is used for the treatment of chronic pain. Although, I think the reason you are getting sick is because your doctor has you taking 2mg up to 6 times a day. That in itself is causing you to b...

Preferred brand of generic Suboxone (Buprenorphine/Naloxone)

I was prescribed and took Suboxone Films for 3 years, and tolerated them very well. Unfortunately, my insurance stopped paying for the films, and I had to start taking the generic Suboxone tablets (Buprenorphine/Naloxone 8/2mg sublingual tablets). I filled my first prescription at Rite Aid, where they gave me the hard, orange tablets made by "Amneal", with the imprint "AN 415". I went into withdrawal the second day after beginning those pills. That was the worst month of my life, as that medication did absolutely nothing beneficial. This month, I took my prescription to CVS, where I was given peach colored tablets with the imprint of "54 375", manufactured by "Roxane". While this brand is slightly better than the Amneal brand, I am still having adverse ef...

will suboxone test positive for morphine

I am in a veterans program and take 24mg of suboxone daily. A recent drug screen showed I tested positive for morphine, yet I never took anything other than suboxone. Is this positive? ## Same thing happened to me. I am in an outpatient program for rehap/probation. I am prescribed Suboxone (buprenorphine). I had all my urine tox's sent to a place called MEDLAB before I got insurance. Now that I have insurnace they were sent to QUEST DIAGNOSTICS and it cam bakc for buprenorphine (Suboxone) & morphine. My P.O. (probation officer) and rehab counselor don't believe me. Even though I tried showing my P.O. tons of information I've found online stating that buprenorphine is a derivative of the alakalaid thebane which is found in morphine & codiene.

how long after taking suboxone can you take morphine

I took 16 mg of suboxone at 4am Saturday morning and got my morphine filled now. Is it safe to take it after 16 hours? ## Hello, Scott! How are you? No, the Naloxone in the Suboxone will prevent the Morphine from having any effect, you usually need to wait at least 72 hours, before other narcotics will work, again, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. The FDA classifies this medication 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I felt my morphine after 48 hours of not taking suboxone. ## I have been taking 12mg of Suboxone a day for over a year now bc I have been going to a counseling/rehab place bc I am a chronic pain pat...

how long will suboxone keep their potentsy if they are expired

I have sublingual strips that have been expired for about a month now are they still good? ## They should be fine, especially if they are still sealed in the package. ## @Adrian, Midiman is right... they should be fine since the expiration date wasn't too long ago. Harvard Medical School did a study stating that many medications like this can actually retain their potency for up to 10 to 15 years beyond their expiration date. The shelf life of Suboxone may be listed as 3 years, but I think it's been proven to retain its potency much longer under proper storage conditions. I hope this helps! ## I take 8 mg suboxone and I only take a small piece of it and then put the rest back in the package. As long as it stays sealed and in a dry place they dont lose alot of their potency. ## I...

white round pill with N8 on one side and an arrow on the other

Please help. I found this and don't know what it is? The pill is white, round and has an arrow looking thing on one side and N8 on the other. I need to know as quickly as possible please. ## Hello, Lindry! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Hi-Tech Pharmacal and they list it as being an 8/2mg generic for Suboxone. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation.

Whats The Best Way To Get Suboxone Out Of Your System

i took half a strip of suboxone on friday and i have to take a drug test soon what is the best way to get it out of my system? ## Don't take it in the first place..... in all honesty, depending on the type of drug screening you are submitting to, you may be screwed no matter what you do, but drink LOTS of water and stay away from ALL narcotics until your screening.... ## There is really no guaranteed way to make sure it isn't in your system and won't be detected by a drug test, other than the one already stated, which is to not take it. One of the active ingredients in Suboxone is the opiate narcotic Buprenorphine and it can be detectable in a standard urine test for approximately 4 to 5 days, after last dosing. There is no precise time frame that can be given, however, beca...

will suboxone show up in a dot drug test

I am going to get my cdl class a licenses... Will suboxone I took two weeks ago show up in my screening? They send it to a lab ## The information I have from someone who is prescribed them and from his doctor, is that it does not show up as an opiate on any test, period. Also, it has to be tested for specifically, so unless they by chance add suboxone to their panel test then it will not show up. The most reliable information I have is that it is a completely separate drug test than 5 or 10 panel, and it costs a lot of money. This might sound funny but I also hear from good sources that they only test you for suboxone to ensure it is in your body (in other words: you are receiving it from a treatment clinic and they need to ensure you're taking it). I'm sorry I can't just sa...

Cheap suboxone/subutex doctors in Louisiana

I am looking for a doctor who prescribes suboxone in the New Orleans, slidell Louisiana area. I am a single mom with no insurance, can't afford 350 a visit and prescription cost. My kids have medicaid but I don't. Thanks. ## Suboxone treatment is still pretty new, so I am not aware of any doctors that offer cheaper prices, because they do have to maintain special approval and monitoring to treat patients with it. Learn more Suboxone details here. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to check into Methadone clinics in your area, as it is usually much cheaper, since it's been used for a very long time.

suboxone not showing up in drug screen

I am taking 8mg of buprenorphine a day but the doctor tested me for it this week and said it did not show up. He then did a dip strip that is supposed to be 99.9% effective but it did not show up on there. Now he is sending the test out to a lab. is there any possible reason it would not show up? I suspect I have a UTI or yeast infection could that make it not show up? I am afraid they are going to kick me out of the program and need to know if there is any medical reason it would not show up. He is kind of old and sometimes confused so I do not really trust him to research possible reasons and would like to be able to show him something about why this might happen. ## I just had the same situation.

what not to say during suboxone appt

My boyfriend has battled with heroin addiction for at least 2 years now. He was prescribed to before, but couldn't afford the maintenance program and ended up banging heroin again. He went back to his doctor to get a script for suboxone again last week, and the doctor wouldn't prescribe it to him. I found another dr who can prescribe suboxone nearby, and want to make sure he gets a script because he will die if he doesn't quit using. Does anyone know any reasons why a dr wouldn't prescribe suboxone? Thanks. ## A good doctor is hareder to find than a good dog. Pay cash, don't go to a doctor that has every client in need of pain meds. If you have X-rays and can prove you've taken the meds before, you still may have to shop around. Be strait with the doctor, but don...

Subutex doctors in ohio

Hi I have been going to a suboxone doctor for a little over a year now, and about 2 weeks ago I went in to my appt and the doc made me sign a paper stating that after September 1st I would no longer be getting prescubed subutext due to the DEA asking questions in their office.. My doctor and I had came to an agreement at the beginning that that's the only thing that works for me! I am in search of a doctor in around or kinda close to Columbus ohio..if anyone can help please let me know ## Hello, Marie! How are you? It is actually a new recommendation from the DEA that Subutex only be prescribed for pregnant women, unless someone is severely allergic to it. Thus, Suboxone is all they are going to be willing to prescribe for you, even if you try a different doctor. The FDA warns that ...
