Subutex 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, while regular, intended use does not (as naloxone is minimally bioa...

Yes they are subutex 153 half moon and the are shaped like a surf board. they work way better then suboxsen strips people keeps saying they cut the strips into millions of peaces if that is the case . You don't need them in the first place. This new one orange subutex 153 half moon surf board shape ones last way longer.. And work great oh my god they work so great ! I recommend them to anyone using the white ones or the strips they both suck compared to the new ones . Take it of leave it but its the truth. if you take just a half it will last you two days ...unreal. ## For these subutex do they taste disgusting like the strips. As of May 1st our physician decided not to do subutex anymore. Luckily I just had my baby I am worried about breastfeeding. An hate the taste of Suboxone it...

would like to see some images of the subutex 'wax square' tablets.(clear purple in color) *want to see the markings... if some have just the one line down the middle verses the line down AND across.( + ) ## Unfortunately, after trying several searches I haven't been able to locate a match in any of the U.S. prescription drug databases, nor any related possibilities on google. If you are certain that this is Subutex, then it's very likely that these pills could either be manufactured outside of the U.S. or that it is a fake (not in the sense that they don't contain the said ingredients or work as intended, but the pills could be manufactured from some unknown company). Until I find a square purple pill online that is regarded as being Subutex, I have yet to think othe...

taking subutex and percocet together
390 Replies RSS
My doctor just put me on subutex along with percocet. I've been on percocet for yrs for severe and chronic migraines. He told me to take the subutex and if it doesn't work to take a percocet. I usually take 15 mg percocet at a time. I've read some stuff online that worries me. Some people say if you take percs with subutex you'll go into withdrawals. I went through severe withdrawals with fioricet months ago and I don't want to go through that hell again. I took my first subutex about an hour ago and I still have a migraine so I want to take a perc now. Can I do that or will I get sick? ## I have been taking subutex for the last month or so. about 2 weeks ago i had a terrible migraine, so I took a 10mg percocet. I went into full withdrawal. Throwing up constantly, na...

Subutex not suboxone doctors who prescribe it in SLC, UT

I am a opiate addict trying to get clean, but suboxone has always made my withdrawal symptoms worse so I need help finding a doctor that can prescribe subutex instead of suboxone. My life dearly depends on it so please help me find a doctor asap. Thanks so much. ## Hello, Brandi! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you've been having. However, worsening withdrawals, or precipitated withdrawals can occur with both of these medications. They both contain Buprenorphine, which takes a stronger hold on your opiate receptors than other opiates that are available, so they tend to kick out any residual opiates that are there and take their place, as reported by the NIH. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause side effects, such a...

I'm on suboxone right now and want to switch to subutex because I'm afraid if there is ever an emergency and I need surgery suboxone will be a huge issue. ## Hello, Ashalee! How are you? I'm afraid they will not let you switch for such a reason. The risk of that ever happening is very low, but if someone is being treated for addiction, there is a fairly big risk that they may abuse other drugs, while being treated, thus Suboxone is the preferred choice. 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 anything else I can help with? ## Need rapid opiate detox frm 75mcg Fentanyl Patch/72 hrs & 10/325mg Percocet per 6 hrs as needed. Its getting ho...
