Hi Ash,

Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Subutex and Suboxone. So with that being said, I wouldn't anticipate having any problems when switching between one or the other.

Also, because Subutex contains the same active ingredient "Buprenorphine", taking the two meds together or within a short a time frame of one another would also be similar to just having an higher dose of Suboxone.

Is your doctor also aware that you're taking both medications?

Have only four 8 strips Suboxone to last until January 21st! I currently take 12 mgs day. Reason Im short? They were stolen and I can't turn the person in as he is family. I have no concrete proof.

anyway, I've be on this for four years and believe it or not, Im workung wuth my dr on a sliw taper, I've let her down a couple of times over the past five years but she took me back as a patient. I'm grateful beyond belief as to how much she carex but she's a TOUGH NUT TO BREAK if anyone runs short for whatever reason! I'm glad that I kept five subs in a differenr spot, or i would have had nothing!!

what do I do?????

I'm also on subutex and have wondered the same thing. As far as my EXPERIENCE is concerned, if I take LESS suboxone than my daily dose of subutex, I find my body feels 'anxious'. Basically I just feel uncomfortable. BUT if I take the equivalent - eg; my daily dose of subutex is 24mg (or 3 x 8mg tablets) so I must take 24mg of suboxone (or 3 x 8mg suboxone film strips) I feel unwell.
The thing with these meds is, if u don't have a good handle on the way you interpret 'hanging out' you'll have issues. I find my mind can almost cause me to feel like I'm hanging out or in desperate need of my dose even though I know I shouldn't. Hope that helps! If there's anything anyone doesn't understand, please ask and I'll try to reply. In today's world, we suffer far too much stigma for us to turn on each other.
peace
MumaCass

Yes you can, they are both used for the same reason and the only difference is subutex does not have a blocker.

Use a piece of the strip to make it last. A lower dose is 2mg so u will at least have something in ur system a little is better than nothing

I take 20 mg of subutex then go fill a prescription for 8 mg of suboxone strips just cause and take it throughout the day, the 20 mg they watch me take plus I am prescribed by my doctor 2 mg of xanax 3 times a day too, so I've got no problems.

I think it's because you are taking way too much. I use to take 24 mg a day but now I take 8 mg a day just small peices through out the day. My anxiety has gone down tremendously and I'm telling you less is more with this medication. Hope you feel better. Try taking a bit less

I've been taking subutex for a while now but if it comes to the point of having to take a suboxone it doesn't work the same and idk why. I just took the same dose of suboxone I take of subutex and I feel I bit of withdraw and uneasy. There is a difference. I've had to do this a few times over the year and it always messes with me. Idk if it's the naloxone that makes the difference or what but it's not the same affect. I've not noticed it though when going from suboxone to subutex though just when I go from tex to suboxone. It's weird and I'm not the only one it works that way with. I've talked to quite a few people now about it and they say they notice the difference as well.

YES hell you can take subutex and suboxone at the same damn time if you wanted too lol I have. They're the same exact thing except suboxone has naloxone in it. They're fine to mix or take one after the other if you ran out of one. No problem.

There is a difference when going from subutex to suboxone idk why but there is. When I find my self having to take suboxone the same mg I've been taking of tex I feel uneasy, anxious, and like a bit withdrawish. I don't get the same affect though going from suboxone to subutex. I think it all has to do with the Naloxone. From what I understand Tex don't have that Naloxone so suboxone causes a bit different chemical reaction in the body then tex do. Others I have talked to on a personal level have said they've experienced the same thing. I think more studies need to be done on theses meds and that they just don't know enough about what they do. My experience is going from steady subutex and then having to take a suboxone and I've noticed the change between the 2 of them.

No, you need to be off of methadone for AT LEAST 48 hours or it will put you into immediate withdrawal. I was on methadone myself for a little over 3 years, tapered down to 14 mg's and just stopped cold turkey and the withdrawals were HORRENDOUS, I can't even exaggerate..3 weeks after I quit, I (luckily) found a Suboxone doctor close to me (because I was on the floor balling from the methadone W/D's) and was put on that and am still currently on but tapering. Suboxone or Subutex is much easier to come off of than methadone. I recommend getting off of methadone as soon as you can, the W/D's are horrible regardless of dose, that s*** gets in your bones and stays there for 4+ weeks EVEN after you stop taking it. Not to mention methadone rots the f*** out of your teeth. I never had cavity problems in my life until I was on that s***, ended up having 3 filled in just the 3 years I was on it. Wouldn't recommend methadone to anyone unless it was a last resort (can't get Suboxone or Subutex). Hope this helps!
