Should I tell the doctors I've taken a few more than my prescribed suboxone
4 Replies RSS
Omg. This week I would of done anything for pills. Lost my job, boyfriend cheated, kid with suicide attempt, found out I have cancer. I'm on two 8mg a day and I took 3 for a few days for the psychological feeling of relief. Life couldn't get any worse. I will be out Tuesday and I'm not due till Thursday. What do I do? ## I ended up calling my doctor and letting him know everything and he was more thankful I didn't use again. That was more important than me taking two extra doses. ## Hello, Jess! How are you doing? I am very sorry about your cancer diagnosis. And I am very glad that your doctor understood and didn't penalize you for taking those extra doses. What is your cancer prognosis? This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effec... ...

will taking suboxone tell my doctors if my chronic pain is still there
4 Replies RSS
Was taking 6-8 Lortab's a day with Fetanyl patch every 72 hours. Doctors need to know if my spine pain is still present or if meds were just masking. So he put me on Suboxone. I take a half at a time. Three suboxones and I still have spine pain. What does this mean? ## Suboxone doesn't tend to alleviate pain as much as most other narcotics, so after taking it for awhile, you should be able to let them know if you still have the pain and how bad it is, but it will prevent you from going into withdrawals from stopping the other medications. At this point, after being on it for such a short time, you may be having rebound pain from stopping the other medications, so you'll likely need to give it a little more time, before you know for sure. The FDA classifies this medication as... ...

How can I stay on suboxone when the doctor wants to take me off? ## Don,t know if it would work but you could tell him you still have urges to use and you don,t think your ready yet. Why do you want to stay on it? ## Hi Bill Brasksi! As Jolter said,"u can tell the Dr that u r still having cravings 2 use." I've been on suboxone 4 almost 8 years, and, I don't plan on getting off it anytime soon. My reason is I feel that I will b back on pain pills, again. (Due. 2 the pain I suffer) I'm just not ready, yet, and, I don't trust myself. ## @Bill, Does your doctor want you off Suboxone indefinitely or is he just trying to get you to taper down from what you've already been taking? In either case, I think it would be a good idea to ask your doctor his reasoning for w... ...

I have taken suboxone at 16 weeks pregnant

I don't take suboxone everyday, just a half of a quarter every 3 to 4 days for about a week or week and a half now. So plz someone tell me if it will be out of mine and the baby's system by the time of birth? I am due Oct.15th, 2015. Plz and thanks. I am a first time mom and I try not to hurt me or my child and I don't want cps involved in anything. I just need advice. ## It would be best, for your safety and that of your baby, to inform your doctor that you've taken it and get proper medical assistance. I understand that you're scared, but you could be putting both of your lives at risk by not telling them. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dr... ...

Disappearing Suboxone Doctor
Post a Reply
My doctor has disappeared. He went out in March. At the March appointment I got two scripts for three a day (regular dose is two a day) one to fill that day and another to fill April 17 to cover up to June 17th. There was no rx for May and I stupidly did not start looking for new doctor because I trusted this doctor and had been going to him for over 2 years. The day before the June 17 appointment he calls, says he could not keep the appointment. At that time, I had a few left and told him that and it was “I don't know what to tell you and hung up”. I got into see someone a few Saturdays ago and they knew my situation and agreed to not make me start over and instead start right off treating monthly if I had printout from pharmacy saying that I had been on it. The doctor ... ...

How much Suboxone did the Doctor Prescribe You?
1 Reply RSS
The Doc put me on 5 a day 8mg pills. In all 40mg a day. It makes me really tired during the day, then at night I have Insomnia. I guess it's better then taking Opiates again. It's truely changed my life? If only I can sleep! ## My doctor started me on four a day, which happens to be way to much. I don't know the exstent of your using but I can tell you that I was bad as they come. If you want to sleep then stop taking so much, no one needs that much suboxone. After a while It becomes a regular part of your life which I am sure you know. I now take only eight milligrams a day, I have been on them for nine months. After forcing myself to lower my dose my sleep paterns became one hundred times better. I went from over three hundred milligrams of oxycontin shot intervenously to ... ...

Please tell me why I can't find a physician that provides suboxone and accepts insurance? ## Because only a limited number of doctors can prescribe Suboxone, they must take special training classes to be allowed to prescribe it. ## It depends what you mean by 'accepts insurance'. I 'accept insurance' in my practice.. I don't accept the insurance as 'total payment', though, because every insurer pays differently-- usually depending on how expensive the insurance policy is. Suboxone patients are treated exactly the same as any of the patients in my general psychiatry practice. One insurer may pay $30, and for the same service another insurer pays $150! So if my charge for the service is $155, the first patient will have to pay an additional $125, and the se... ...

I will tell you people this that Suboxone saved me. I was taking Methadone and whatever else I could get when I couldnt get the Methadone and, I started searching on the internet all you do is go google type in suboxone doctors and it will pull up a list by state. Belive me find one and start taking it today. I did it right I dropped down to 30mg of Methadone a day and then went through 3 days of hell. I read if you dont have a good withdrawal going that the suboxone will throw you into it. I will not lie. I didnt like the way I felt after the first two days. Dont get me wrong NO WITHDRAWALS!!!!!!!!!!!!! But the feeling was not what I was expecting but now 4 days later I feel like my old self I mean I really feel good. So please do it right and go through a day or two of hurting for you... ...

Would a doctor rather write scripts gor pain killers or suboxone? I've been on opiates for 10 yrs as has my husband.

How are you? Some doctors do prefer it, due to the fact that the Naloxone in it helps prevent a patient from being able to abuse other opiates. That's why it's also the preferred medication for addiction treatment, now.

suboxone and klonopin
1 Reply RSS
I've been on klonopin and suboxone for years. As long as you don't abuse them and take what the dr tells you to, you won't have a problem. It can and will be death if you abuse them. Hope this helps. ## @brian, You have a good point. Self control goes a very long way. As habit-forming as something like klonopin is, continuing to adhere to your doctor's regimen can be the biggest difference between becoming a fully fledged addict or remaining a normal patient. I know those are just labels, but it really is a delicate balance that one must maintain over the duration of treatment or course of several years, as you can vouch for. Glad to hear that you're still finding them both to be beneficial and not detrimental after all this time. Take care! ...
