Suboxone Overview

Buprenorphine/naloxone (trade name Suboxone) is a combination drug formulation of buprenorphine, a μ-opioid receptor (MOR) weak partial agonist and κ-opioid receptor antagonist, and naloxone, a MOR silent antagonist, in a 4:1 ratio.[1][2] It is used in the treatment of opioid dependence.[1][2] The purpose of naloxone is to deter intravenous abuse; parenteral administration rapidly induces opioid withdrawal symptoms in opiate dependent individuals, while regular, intended use does no...

How long after you stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?
1066 Replies RSS
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 ...

Suboxone and sleep
1 Reply RSS
I am on suboxone just started today and was induced at the office after being on methadone for two years and the induction was great no PW's at all. My question is this when I was on methadone I slept great, I mean awesome, but tonight I can't seem to get to sleep since starting the suboxone. How long does it take on suboxone do you start to sleep normally again. I hate this part when starting a new med. lol. Just would like to know when I will sleep normal again. Thanks for any feedback in advance. ## Unfortunately, there is no way anyone can give you a definitive timeline, it depends on you and how your body reacts to changing medications. The FDA warns that Suboxone carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry m...

suboxone 54 375 how to take it
2 Replies RSS
Iv been on Suboxone for almost 2 years now , and iv tried every single manufacturer you can think off, starting from the very first orange oval shape ones which are the original ones not generic ones , from that to strips ,an415 orange round , white round moon imprint to, white round lemon lime ones to bupes , which are the small round ones and have a 8 logo on the front and a arrow logo on the back , and in my opinion those are the best ones because they have no naloxone in then just 8 mg of buprenorphin , those ones work the best but they are not given out much because or abuse, I am on the round peach ones right now imprint 54 375 and they are working perfectly for me , as a matter of fact they work really good for me way better then the white round ones with the imprint if moon on t...

Was badly addicted to hydrocodone/oxycodone/percocet for 7 years. Am now free thanks to buprenorphine(Suboxone).

Not real sure why exactly it is that I feel it necessary to post here in this forum. Maybe I'm hoping that someone looking for help will read this and make the same decision myself and my husband did. 7 years ago I was introduced to the joys and wonderous feelings of pain pills. Always working in the restuarant industry as a server/ bartender, the high I got from taking tabs or percs or whatever I could get my hands on led me to believe that I was a better server, better at my job, made more money, could talk to people more openly and be a happier person all around. At first, like the beginning 3 years I would take 1 to 3 lortab 10 mg in one day and be hopping around all over the place till the wee hours of the morning, talking everyone's head off and energized to the max. As th...

transition from suboxone to vivitrol
6 Replies RSS
Any1 had any luck w/this? I've been on Subo waaay too long and am more than ready to get off. My new dr suggests the Vivitrol shot. He says to go 3 days w/o any Subs b4 getting the shot. Very nervous. Not so sure I can even go 3 days w/o. Wondering if any1 else has went through this transition and does it actually help w/cravings and w/d? i don't crave so much, but I do w/d and THAT is terrifying when I am a single mother, have no parents or family and must do this on my own. Any answers are much appreciated. God Bless! ## Why isn't this doctor just tapering you off of the Suboxone? That is the way it is normally done, after a period of time, when someone is past the craving portion. The Vivitrol contains Naltrexone. However it doesn't contain any type of narcotic like t...

Is it ok to take vicodin with suboxone?
94 Replies RSS
Hi. I am having a procedure done and am being prescribed vicodin. I am currently on suboxone. I WILL NOT take the vicodin unless I am in excruciating pain. Would suboxone help with the pain? And if I do have to take the vicodin how long should I wait to take it after taking suboxone? THANKS! ## Vicodin will not do anything taken with the Suboxone. Suboxone contains an opiate neutralizer to help prevent you from getting high and taking other drugs while under treatment. Vicodin is also nowhere near as strong as the Suboxone, so it will be liking taking TicTacs for your pain in comparison. Suboxone is a narcotic, so it will help with the pain and you should be fine with just that. ## Suboxone does not help relieve any pain what so ever. I am on suboxone, but if you have to take vicodin yo...

how long after taking a suboxone can you use methadone
8 Replies RSS
How long after taking 8mg suboxone can u take methadone ## Hello, Michael! How are you? It usually takes about 3 days, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, 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? ## BE CAREFUL! Precipitated withdrawl will happen if you take it too soon. I don't know your dose of methadone you have tapered off the Half-Life of that poison is @least 72 hrs or more. Depends on alot. How much how long how you metabolized the stuff. I speak from experience. Personally I would give it a wk.Good luck! ## A doctor at a methadone clinic once told me I can go right from Suboxone to methad...
