I am taking suboxone 8.2 three times a day and my doctor told me this was the maximum dosage, however i am still struggling with terrible anxiety. I have read people take xannax or valium with suboxone. How is that? I didnt think i could ever get that as i am labled an addict by taking suboxone. Thanks for any advise ## Hello, Lorcos! How are you? I'm sorry about your anxiety issues. Your doctor is correct, that is the maximum daily dosage. As to whether or not someone can take benzodiazepines, while being treated with, that is entirely up to the individuals doctor. The FDA classifies Suboxone 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 co... ...

1st time - Suboxone
23 Replies RSS
I am starting my suboxone treatment tomorrow after I'm into the ever dreaded WD's. My 1st prescription is for 8 mg. 1/2 a pill every hour until the symptoms have subsided. I have been taking 14-17 10 mg. hydrocodones a day for about 1 1/2 yrs. I'm very scared of how I am going to feel for the next few days. I am also dealing with a lot of anxiety. Does anyone know if I can take a 1/2 or whole xanax while taking Suboxone to help with anxiety? I'm reading conflicting reports on this. I've got a call into my dr., but have not heard back yet. I am very concerned about how I will be able to function for the next few days or weeks. Yesterday was my first dr. visit and prescription. I really want to kick this awful habit. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank You... ...

I quit getting Adderall & Xanax because of Suboxone
2 Replies RSS
My psychiatrist gives me Adderall and Xanax and has been for 2 years. I went to the Suboxone clinic and got Suboxone and I guess it came up in my drug panel at my psychiatrist and she will not prescribe me my meds. Now I'm going through serious withdrawals. Does anybody have any suggestions? ## Since they are both considered by the FDA to be habit forming, that is a normal occurrence, most doctors will not continue prescribing them for someone being treated for an existing addiction. While I understand an addiction may not be why you sought out a Suboxone clinic, I am just telling you how your psychiatrist most likely sees it. Did you inform her ahead of time that you were taking Suboxone? ## My doctor prescribes me Suboxone and Xanax; though it's a very small dose. Plus this is... ...

xanax .5mg and suboxin

I desperately need & want to get off of diladids. I have to have xannax for panic disorder n im scared of the problems with mixing the two. I take .5mg of xannax 1 to 2 times a day. N have been taking nuerontin for nerve damage & in replace of my antidepressant. So how safe is my medications going to be with the suboxin? I HAVE got to quit these diladids! ## Hydromorphone is nasty stuff. These are questions you want to ask the Doctor! ## Some doctors that tread with Suboxone won't let you continue Xanax, while under treatment, since it can also be addictive. They will usually make you switch to one of the antidepressants that can treat panic and anxiety attacks. But how much Dilaudid have you been taking? Suboxone is only appropriate for heavy addiction. This is a narcotic a... ...

Is it ok to use benzos and/or muscle relaxers while in prerequisite withdrawal?
1 Reply RSS
Hello, I'm starting the prerequisite withdrawal period before my first suboxone appointment. I would desperately like to know if I can take a xanax or maybe a soma during this period to ease symptoms? Thanks so much for your time... ## Due to the nature of your question, this may be something best answered by your doctor who can make a more informed decision based on your medical records, current health, age, weight, whether or not you're taking any other medications, etc. However based on my research, as long as you're not taking the xanax or soma with suboxone at the same time, you should be fine. Reason being is that there are drug interactions between those medications that may result in increased side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. ... ...

I need to know of a doctor in the Hattiesburg area of MS who will write me Xanax it at least klonopin in conjunction with my Suboxone ## Hello, Mojo! How are you? Have you checked this out with your Suboxone prescriber? Some of them don't permit the use of any other controlled substances, while you're under treatment with it. It would be best to check on that first, to be sure you don't break your treatment contract. ## I need a pain management dr n hattiesburg ms ## Need a Doctor to help me come off of 12-16 mgs of xanax daily.

Can you take benzos while you're on suboxone?
297 Replies RSS
I've been seeing a lot of posts regarding taking benzos while on Suboxone. It is ok to take a benzo w/ suboxone - as long as you're taking the prescribed dosages you'll be fine. Now if you're taking 3 or 4 8mgs of Suboxone and say 5 or 6 Xanax that's not good, that's where the reported deaths have come from. I've been on Subs for 5 yrs. I've also been subscribed klonopin and am currently taking valium w/ it and it's fine. I'm on a low dose and only take what I am prescribed.

Can I Take Xanax While On Suboxone
3 Replies RSS
If your doc said no, then no. They do urine tests and they test specifically for benzos. They can kick you out of treatment. If you are in treatment and are serious about getting better, don't risk it. I'm doing so well on suboxone and won't risk anything. I flushed a bottle if percs, tramadol, and 200 Xanax. I'm glad. I love being clean. ## And to answer the other side of the question, if you are allowed to take Xanax, then yes, the Naloxone in Suboxone only works to neutralize narcotics, not Benzodiazepines. Learn more Xanax details here. Does anyone have any comments or questions? ## I am so very proud of you. Congratulations!!!!!!! ## I take about 2mg of suboxone or less and usually only up too 1mg of alprazolam or "xanax" in a 24 hr period. I'm just curi... ...

I am in pain management and we get urine tests every so often. Today they said I tested positive for suboxone but I don't even know what that is.

How is it possible to test positive for something you have never taken? ## My friend is on suboxone and sometimes tests pos for oxycodone. Her Dr said it does happen sometimes and isnt her fault. I suggest you research the two showing as each other on drug test n print anything to your benefit n take to your Dr. ## Suboxone contains Buprenorphine and Naloxone, the first is an opiate narcotic and the latter is used to help prevent the abuse of others while someone is being treat with it, because it is most common... ...
