Suboxone 8mg/2mg and Roxy 30's

I am currently taking Roxicodone 30's each day. I have suboxone 8mg/2mg to help get off of these. I know the suboxones are the best pill made to help with the withdrawals but I'm wondering if for the firsrt 3 to 5 days when I'm having trouble sleeping and feeling clammy, if i should take like half of a Roxicodone 30 (which i have done in the past), as it helps me to sleep and takes away the clammy feeling? Any other suggestions that you may have? Thanks to anyone answering this for me. ## Taking the Oxycodone pills with the Suboxone will do you no good, it contains a substance that neutralizes opiates to prevent their abuse during treatment, that is why it throws you into withdrawals. Suboxone should really not be used without a doctor's supervision, as the dosage and us...

Does Amerigroup cover the cost of Suboxone

I'm having a hard time finding a Suboxone Dr near me. And I don't wanna travel to Nashville TN, even though I'm from Carthage, TN. I'm on Amerigroup & I don't mind picking up a service charge. I just don't know if I can personally afford $300.00 dollars for a visit each month. ## In this case, the best advice I can give is to check directly with Amerigroup to see what they will, or will not cover. Amerigroup Website The FDA warns that Suboxone carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth.

Suboxone films stuck to your teeth

Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone has ever had a problem with suboxone films sticking 2 your teeth ? Sometimes, when I put the film under my tongue, it won't go in right and sticks 2 my teeth. So, I'm trying 2 fix it properly and the film is wet, it then sticks 2 my fingers. It's like wasting half the darn film. Anyone else experience this? ## Hey Cats, The films get messy. I use a mirror when possible and sometimes it still gets all over the place. I found out the hard way not to touch the films once they get wet. ## There really isn't going to be a huge difference in absorption if it sticks to your teeth and dissolves elsewhere in the mouth. You are still going to get the medication into your body. Thus, unless your doctor advises otherwise, it may be best to just...

I live in a Smaller town in South Carolina than you can imagine! No one here gets around too well if you don't have a vehicle, and I'm one.

Doctor in Forth Worth or Dallas Texas that takes Medicaid/Medicare and writes for Suboxone or Subutex

I justed moved from north carolina where i was taking three to four subutex a day for five years. Then went to 4 suboxone 8mg a day and i moved to the DFW area and i cant find any doctor SO PLEASE SOMEONE HELP...... ## Cook Children's has a website at and there is a portal for members to use that lets you access features, such as a search for a provider in your area that accepts it. You can find it by looking in the orange box on the left side of the page, near the top is "Member Online Services". I think that would likely be the easiest way to find someone that can help you. Does anyone happen to know of a doctor in that area that accepts this coverage? ## Look up Kratom. It's an herb. When you finally try it, your search will change from looking for doctors...

Generic Suboxone which is better cvs or walgreens

who has been suboxone CVS or walgreens.I know thwy are generic but which is better of the two ## You're really asking a subjective question, because a generic that works well for one person may not work that well for you and vice-versa. What you really need to discover is which one works best for you. Learn more Suboxone details here. Have you had problems with any that you've tried? ## Walgreens or CVS has the exact same thing when it comes to suboxen, not sure what dose you are on but an 8mg suboxen strip will have 6mg of buprenorphine and 2mg of naloxone. ## The difference between the two.... Walgreens has the orange generics and cvs has the white generics. I had both and imo, they're exactly the same. But if I had to choose, I would go with walgreens only bc in my head I...

Suboxone & Phentermine

Does anyone knows if taking Phentermine (diet pill) and Suboxone is harmful in anyway? ## I'm not finding any contraindications listed that states they cannot be used together. However, this site is not medical professionals, so you should check with your doctor or pharmacist to be on the safe side. Is your doctor aware that you are taking both? ## No problem taking the two together. I have been on Suboxone for two years, and my doctor just started me on Phentermine. Also, I checked with the pharmacist before filling. If you have heart trouble or very high blood pressure, you should be monitored however. ## I know this question is old, but for anyone who may be looking for the answer. Yes you can take suboxone & phentermine together. Ive gained 45lbs on the suboxone & I have...

tapering down from suboxone

My daughter stole four of my 8 mlg tablets. Of course she denies it but that's a different story. I have been on subs for years due to an option addiction I had due to a back injury. Anyway, I only take 4 mlg a day. I don't see my dr until wed and now I only have enough to take 2mlg a day. Will this be ok to taper from 4mlg to 2mlg for a few days? ## Did you go through any withdrawal? If so how bad was it? ## If you do so, you may experience some minor withdrawal symptoms due to the sudden drop in dosage, which may include nausea, diarrhea, rebound pain, rebound headache, tremors, sweating, chills, and fever. Ref: Opioid Withdrawal Information Although your symptoms shouldn't be as bad as they would if you stopped taking it entirely. However, the best thing to do would be to...

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 ...

round orange suboxone not fully off methadone BIG MISTAKE!!!

I have been on methadone for approx 3 months. I'm on 55mgs. I recently heard that suboxone was a much better way of life as an individual coming off opiates (suboxone gives more energy, more focused, kills cravings even when leaving your system) so I, like an idiot, bought 4 of these generic suboxone orange pills, thinking I could convert myself. The night I bought the pills I had taken my dose of methadone around 9am. I took half an orange pill, let it dissolve under my tongue around 9pm. I had a slight stomach ache then fell asleep. The next day I figured the methadone was fully out of my body & I took a whole pill and a half. By 9:30 I broke out in cold sweats. I tried sitting at my desk and began feeling terrible leg and joint pains. I was scheduled for work that day and had...

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...
