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 " REALLY ......SO I am guessing that he really never gave a s*** about his patients at all because this is a horrible feeling. I would never wish this feeling on anyone. I really need to find a doctor in LOUISIANA south, that will prescribe this medication. Can you please help me?

Hello, Jen! How are you?

Were you taking it for addiction treatment or pain?

I'm not sure from your post and that determines what type of doctor you'll need.

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.

Donald Dreyer, Baton Rouge, LA. $300 to pick up new script each month.
No appointment necessary, as secretary will give u script when u drop
in each month. First visit u will need to see doc. He is semi retired and
never in office. In a pinch, secretary will call ur script in to pharmacy once u
get to know her.

I was on methadone for 2 years then switched to suboxone. I was having a hard time feeling better even after a week. So Saturday I stopped my suboxone and took methadone, but didn't feel much until Sunday when I took 90 mgs thru out that day. I took methadone again on Monday, but now it's Tuesday and I want to start back suboxone and try again. I'm scared because I took so much. I was on 35 mg when I switched and waited 24 hrs before starting suboxone. Will it be worse, same, or what? I'm just so nervous again.

Meds are 1st priority, they make it possible to do your daily activities. When you get your rx, suboxone only take 1/4 of an 8 strip to do the same as 4 or 8 whole strips. More is not more...more is bad for you and your life, less is better. If you get a rx a month, try stripping it, one 8 lasts 4 days and your month rx can last 4.. you can save up your rx and take your life back from drugs and drs leashes. Suboxone is starting to require drug panels, 8 week group counseling and the d.e.a. will only give you 16 mlg a day. Here in new mexico a dr is also limited to how many patients and tylenol pm is a false negative for drs u/a's for them to actually cut you off. Imagine a real failed drug panel. All the suboxone drs are not taking any new patients or most insurances. It is hell through no callbacks and unacceptance, and the e.r. treats you like garbage. Less is more, love yourself and take your control back. I went from 4 oxy 80s and 4 oxy 30s a day to horrible suboxone withdrawals...i just changed medicines..the only good thing is subs can be cut and can last you 4x as long without dying...

What is the name of the doctor? I was just placed on Medicaid and my doctor who I have been with for over 10 years suddenly stopped taking it and I cannot afford to pay the $150 a visit. I am pregnant and my obgyn says I cannot stop taking it or I could miscarry. I am desperate. I really need a doctor who accepts Medicaid or risk my babies life.

Go to the link below and choose where you live. Then call the drs that are listed and ask if any of them take Medicaid. If you have Medicaid through a Bayou Health Plan, go to that health plans website and put the names of the drs that are listed at the link below. But, be sure and call to verify that they take Medicaid Only because most of the drs listed on the health plans websites and Bayou Health don't take Medicaid Only.

mary, there are a number of states that will take a baby when they find that the mother had used drugs. The drugs do not have to be illegal.

christy, go to the link I posted in Reply #15. You will have to call the drs in your area and ask if they take Louisiana Medicaid as well as your health plan.
