hi tech pharmacal suboxone

Got a terrible hradache.. I am begging my pharmacy to give me my old ones.. hi-TECH brand is the worst... never had any problem. These hi techs really messed me up..hopefully they will stop making these... bad headache... and very little effect ... ## I'm very sorry about the headache, however, that can be a normal side effect of Suboxone, according to FDA reports, along with nausea, dizziness, constipation, and dry mouth. Ref: Medline Plus Buprenorphine Have you informed your doctor? They may know a way to alleviate it. Are you on any other medications?

Suboxone Dr in Greeneville, TN

Is there a dr in greeneville tn that can write suboxone or methadone for chronic back pain? I was on suboxone for pain management and the clinic said they had to wean me off due to the fact i was on it for pain. Can someone help please? I've not been treated in 7 months, still in lots of pain. ## I have been told that there is a special license/training to be able to write for Suboxone. Look on the Suboxone web page for a licensed physician. Problem is that once your on this medication unless it is stated in a document that you're on it for pain management, others WILL ASSUME, that you were put on it for opioid dependence/addiction. Many doctors who are not licensed to write for this are not aware that it is now being used for the treatment of Chronic pain. I have been in chroni...

Can you take Suboxone with Adderall and Klonopin?

I recently switched doctors because my original doctor stopped prescribing me klonopin when he put me on suboxone. My new doctor put me back on klonopin, but he wants to take away my adderall because he thinks it is causing anxiety. The adderall actually helps me focus and keeps me motivated. I kind of need it, but I also need the klonopin. So I don’t know what to do. I also need the suboxone to keep my life on track. Is it possible to take all three at once? ## I am on Klonopin 6mg a day 10mg of Adderall and one 8mg sub. I do fine with this dose. I am a recovering addict from benzos and pain pills. I understand what you're going through. Talk to your doc & be honest, but I'm on all three and have been now for months. ## Thank you for your advice. I appreciate it. Yeah...

Tapering off Subutex while pregnant

My wife is pregnant and I just found out she has been taking Subutex for several months. To make matters worse she's been trying to taper off this drug under the advise of someone she met at other forums. She hasn't let the doctor know she's been taking this drug and this guy has her convinced he can taper her off without harming the baby. I'm besides myself and trying to get her to at least let the doctor monitor her progress on a regular basis while she gets off this stuff. Is this really safe for her to be doing or am I right in thinking she's lost her mind trusting this person? ## I am on subutex and pregnant. My doctor believes that the safest thing I can do is stay on the meds. If I go through withdrawals, so does baby. ## I would highly suggest (sounds better ...

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...

Orange round pill with 54 375 are the same as the strips

Ive been on suboxone for 8 years. Since 2006. I know a lot about the pharmaceutical properties of medications from being an addict and being obsessed with learning everything i could about them. I hear these myths about generics not being as good as the brand name and so on, let me tell you something, to become a generic the main ingredients, the ones that actually effect you HAVE to be in the exact same quantities, So if these orange 375's have 8 mg Bup/2 Mg Nal then they will effect you THE EXACT SAME WAY AS a strip ( which I'm on, and was on the old N8's forever, and so glad they have these strips now), have taken the 375's, and its the same. Is the placebo effect that strong? I cant stand hearing friends try and tell me how this medication isn't as good as the ne...

medicaid louisiana doctors that are suboxone licensed

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 ...
