getting off zubsolv

Why is there no information anywhere on how to get off suboxone or zubsolv.... since recently I was switched to the zubsolv and I hate it. Any success stories out there? If so, please share how u did it. Been addicted to opiates for four yrs and on synthetics now for a yr. My doctor is useless and I'd rather hear it from someone who's lived it anyways. ## There is absolutely no way to avoid withdrawals from opiates. ## Subs are made to be taken long term, all depending on your abuse and history. my Dr had me on it for 6 yrs. I have the understanding that I will be on it the rest of my life due to the damage I've done abusing H, oxycintin 80s, roxys, morphine for a good decade ...sub's are harder to get off of then anything out there, H included, due to its Half Life. The...

Zubsolv 5 7 Help

So my fiance has been on Zubsolv 5.7mg for about 8 weeks now. But just recently, within an hour after taking a dose, he gets extremely drowsy and gets an awful migraine. For example, just about 30 minutes ago he took his dose and he was wide awake and nothing wrong. Now that the meds are starting to kick in, he is dozing off in the chair, can't keep his eyes open and has a pounding headache. I don't know what to do or how to help. Does anyone know what could be causing this? I hate seeing him like this. Thanks in advance. ## Those can be side effects of this medication, according to FDA reports, he could also experience nausea, dizziness, and constipation. However, it is possible that it is not the right dose for him. Has he informed his doctor of the problem? Is he on any other...

Zubsolv, Suboxone, Buprenorphine / Naloxone

I have been on Zubsolv, Suboxone, of all doses, for years now. I have reached the point to where my Zubsolv will take literally hours to dissolve and once it finally does dissolve to some extent..enough for me to swallow at least, I have no way of getting it to completely dissolve. So I have to eat with the medicine still very much still in my mouth and throat. Despite using extra water, to try and help the process along, etc. This takes up a great deal of my mornings. Plus I have crohns disease and have much difficulty swallowing in the first place. So I'm simply unable to get anything down. All the way or even more than just past my throat. I have diarrhea as well with this medication and have had many bowel blockages that I have no doubt are due in part to the way the swallowed Z...

Zubsolv reviews

Has anyone tried it? ## Ya, I got it yesterday. I'm not really digging it. I have taken both suboxone 8mg tabs, and strips. This does not seem to be near as strong to me. Its only been a day so maybe it will get better. But, its suppose to be great for takin effect quicker? And it burns the shiznikks out of my mouth! ## tried it yesterday, really good in my opinion a big step forward, easy to use and you get rid of the hideous aftertaste. Haven't noticed any difference in strength. ## Much, much, much better taste and really fast dissolve time - I really can recommend Zubsolv!! ## Hello, Based on my research, Zubsolv is a medication that contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine + Naloxone. This medication is intended for the treatment of Opioid dependance. Buprenorphine is ...

Zubsolv conspiracy

I wonder if this medication is what they say it is I feel a conspiracy??? Anyone else??? ## Absolutely!!! I was on 2 mg suboxone films for at least 5 years, until Independant Health decided to go to bed with the makers of zubsolv. It DOES NOT work the same way!!! The meds half life is not at long at sub was. I could go a day and a half without feeling withdrawal symptoms when on suboxone. Not zubsolv!!! After 24 hours I had major withdrawal! Plus they made it impossible to wean off of zubsolv! At least with the zub films you could cut off pieces to wean. What do you do w that tiny white tablet??? Thank you crap healthcare system we have in the US. Insurance companies really have is all by the balls. Think Im just gonna end up paying out of pocket for suboxone. I know it works! ## March ...

ZUBSOLV 5.7

I was on subutex 8mg and ive been reading about these new subutexs with the 8 and the arrow on them. I got a different kind there zubsolv 5.7 mg/1.4 mg? I dont understand is one of these pills equal to a 8 mg? There small white round tablet imprinted with 5.7 on the front? ## Subutex contains just the narcotic Buprenoprhine as the active ingredient, so an 8mg tablet of it contains that much of the Buprenorphine… Where the Zubsolv is actually an equivalent to Suboxone, because it contains the Buprenorphine (in this case 5.7mgs) and Naloxone (in this case 1.4mgs). Learn more Subutex details here. Learn more Suboxone details here. So no, they aren't equal to the 8mg Subutex tablets. This medication is a narcotic opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause si...

how long does zubsolv block opiates

I took a zubsolv at 6:00am this morning, how long will it block opiates ## Hi hollywood, According to the FDA, "Buprenorphine's average elimination half-life from plasma ranges from 24-42 hours, and Naloxone's is anywhere from 2-12 hours". Ref: accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2013/204242s000lbl.pdf With that said, not only will it depend on how much you took, but also how long you've been taking it for.. or if this was just a one time thing for you? However you can also use the half life to try and estimate about how long each dose will be most active in your system, because after the time frame of each half life listed above, you're essentially going to end up with "half of what you originally took" and then "half of that remaining half"...

Weaning off of Zubsolv

Has anyone here had any experience weaning themselves off of zubsolv? I've been on it for almost a year now and I really want to get completely off. I've gotten myself down to only half a pill a day but when I try to stop completely I still go through terrible withdrawal. Any suggestions? ## I have been on it for 7-8months with subutex, suboxone, some other one, and Zubzolv. IT IS HELL!!! I've been on the above meds off and on, but this time it's been 3 years. ## What dosage are you taking? Cutting down to only half a pill may still be too much and thus, could be the reason for the withdrawals. However, without your dosage information, it's hard to say. Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it has the poten...

How long does Zubsolv stay in your system

how long does zubsolv stay in your body

I've been on zubsolv 5.7 for 6 months and I'm getting myself down to a quarter of a pill a day. I'll take a quarter of one for 6 days and I'll run out. Does anyone how how long the withdraw and the half life will last? ## Hello, Joe! How are you? The withdrawal can vary from person to person, because much of it depends on your own body chemistry, so there's no precise time frame I can give you for that. It may be a week, or it may take a month. The elimination time can take anywhere from 10 to 252 hours. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Using Florida Medicaid In Alabama For Zubsolv

I wanted to know if my Florida Medicaid would cover my zubsolv in Alabama? ## No, you may be able to get someone at pharmacy to help; however I know it does NOT work this way with State Medicaid. You cannot even use Mississippi Medicaid in Tenn. you have to crossover state line.

Benzodiazpines with zubsolv

Hello. I'm on zubsolv, but have been dealing with a panic disorder for almost a year now and it's getting worse. I'm having them everyday all day and i was wondering if you are monitored by the doctor will they prescrible you a low dose of any kind of benzodiazpine? ## If the doctor knows you're an addict the doctor who is supposed to prescribe the benzos won't give them to you because it's addicting. At least that's what my psych doctor told me. She said I'm not allowed to give you anything addicting that people feel high off of. ## Some doctors will, and some won't, it really depends on their preferences, and how often they are monitoring you. As Dana stated, some will not prescribe another possibly addictive medication, such as a benzodiazepine, wh...

I was going to a sub dr for 3 yrs best doctor ive ever met... he went to jail 6 months ago n i have an appt monday with a new one but i was able to get suboxone while trying to find a new dr which might i add $1000 for the first visit is just ridiculous... should i go for the strips or zubsolv? ## I take 2 zubsolvs 5.7 mg tablets a day. I used to take the 8mg suboxone strips. Trust me stick with the suboxone. I would rather have 1 suboxone strip than 2 zubsolv tabs but my insurance doesn't cover suboxone. ## Omg subzolve SUCKS ive been on suboxone for a few years and my ins wont cover it anymore so now im suppose to be on subzolve and it has done NOTHING but throw in wicked withdrawal. Stick to subs id do anything for suboxone back ## I think it's a little ironic that the "b...

Is zubsolv better than suboxone

I have been taken 2 8mg suboxone strips a day for 2 years and my ins won't pay now and they told me about this new one called zubsolv...I'm thinking of switching has anybody taken it and it worked cuz I'm scared of goin from something that works to something that don't ## Hello, Justin! How are you? Zubsolv contains the exact same ingredients as Suboxone. Buprenorphine coupled with Naloxone, both are most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so as long as you doctor approves, you should be able to make a smooth switch. The FDA lists this medication as being 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? ## FDA approve...

Taking Zubsolv 20 hrs after an opiate

It's been 20 hrs since I used an opiate. Am I safe to take my zubsolve I have been prescribed. ## This medication cannot be taken, until you are in full withdrawal, otherwise, it could throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. There is no specific time frame that I can give you, because it can vary from person to person. 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? ## Yes - take 1 soon as you start to feel withdrawals. ## I've been taking 8mg Suboxone and now I have 5.7 mg Zubsolv. How am I gonna feel? I'm kinda scared after reading the post. ## I took opiates at 10 pm. How long do I wait to take Zubsolv?

How long after taking opiates can I take a zubsolv?

I just got prescribed zubsolv and my last dose of opiates was last night around 6pm. It's now 10:30 the next morning. Can I take it now or do I have to wait till I start going into withdrawal more? How many hours do I have to wait after opiates until I can take zubsolv? ## Hello, Rebecca! How are you? You must be in full withdrawal, before you can take Zubsolv, otherwise it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. 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.

how long after taking a zubsolv can you take another opiate?

Ok I came on this website looking for the answer. I took a half a zubsolv at 9:30 yesterday morning, it is now 10:00 the next morning. I still wasn't in full blown withdrawal but i was kinda feeling the stomach cramps and leg cramps so i just took a half a dilaudid and i felt relief, but granted it was my first time taking a zubsolv and i only took half but after 24 hours and 30 minutes it worked just fine :) ## Okay, so I am new to this Zubsolv thing and I took a 5.7/1.4 tablet at about 130. When will I be able to take my Dilaudid next? ## I only took 4 1.4/0.36 and first time but im in pain can I.take my Percocet I took the zubsolv 2pm today ## Based on related threads here, I see that anywhere from 24-48 hours is a fairly common time frame to wait in between taking Zubsolv (Bupre...

Zubsolv post surgery

I’ve been on zubsolv for close to 8 years (farrrr longer than I would’ve liked). This was to treat my bad habits during my teen years. I’m on the smallest does, with one pill lasting about 3 days. I had surgery yesterday and was very up front that I want no narcotics under any circumstances. Well they gave me a dose of something (what exactly, I don’t know) while I was under because they said it was necessary. Seemed pointless since they knew I took zubsolv the evening prior. Anyway, the narcotic dose they gave me was between 7-10am yesterday (surgery began at 7, I was released at 10am). It’s now been 24 hours since then. Can I take my zubsolv? I’m terrified of going into precipitated withdrawals. Is there a time frame, as in hours, you’re suppo...

zubsolv

Im thinking of switching from strips to zubsolv next month because I have no insurance is there anyone whos switched and liked it? ## It is the same, just under a different formulation and brand name, so it should work the same. This is 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 a big price difference? ## I know you posted this a long time ago, but if you haven't switched, I would not recommend it. I did and it is awful. I was down to between 2 to 4 mgs of suboxone a day. My ins stopped paying for them so 3 weeks ago my doc switched me to zubsolv, telling me that it's the same even better. He said stronger and easier to get off of. I got 30 5.7 tabs and ...
