#Pain Killer Equivalent Doses (Oral) 1.2mg.............Buprenorphine (Bupe) 200mg............Codeine (Tylenol 2, 3, 4, etc) 30-60mg.........Diacetylmorphine (Heroin) (orally it = morphine, IV/IM/insuffilated it's 2x as strong) 100mg............Dihydrocodeine 30mg..............Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lorcet, etc) 7.5mg.............Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) 37.5µg............Fentanyl (not sure on this one, anyone know the oral dose equivalence for Fentanyl?) 4mg................
but it is not really the effect they r comparing//but the strength...i do believe there is a conversion chart in avisg's journal...
When some people do this it takes a while to adjust from one to the other, because subutex has only 1 main ingredient ( buprenorphine ) and Suboxone has 2 main ingredients ( buprenorphine and Naloxone ) Some people dont take too well to the Naloxone, and have symptoms of what you are feeling right now. But it could be your dose or the Naloxone.
a good NEW behavior, eh?...however, have a look at this conversion chart, ok?

I have taken both//but for the wrong reasons and preferred a subutex buzz over suboxone's buzz #Pain Killer Equivalent Doses (Oral) 1.2mg.............Buprenorphine (Bupe) 200mg............Codeine (Tylenol 2, 3, 4, etc) 30-60mg.........Diacetylmorphine (Heroin) (orally it = morphine) if used IV//insuffilated it's 2x as strong so if used in this manner this value is not correct) 100mg............Dihydrocodeine 30mg..............Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lorcet, etc) 7.5mg.............
8mgs is the same as 40mgs of methadone, sounds like an accurate conversion to me, when i was on 32mgs of suboxone i felt the same buzz as when i was on 200mgs of methadone i am not sure about the exact conversion, google opiate conversion chart you will be loaded on information about the "ceiling effect" there was a girl on here who had a great chart on her profile page, not sure if its still up ,i am telling you this as personal experience as i have been on both these drugs, i can
Suboxone is a mixture of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is a powerful opiate, and naloxone is an opiate blocker used to resuscitate people in the ER from an opiate overdose. With no other opiates in the addict’s system in the last few days, he/she can either snort or intravenously shoot up Suboxone and become extremely high since it easily dissolves in water, making it easier to shoot up than heroin.
With your Temgesic pills containing 200 Micrograms (.02 Milligrams) of Buprenorphine, and Suboxone containing 8 milligrams of Buprenorphine, we're looking at two VERY DIFFERENT dosings. Taking one 8-milligram Suboxone pill is the equivalent of eating 40 (yes, FORTY) Temgesics. Good luck with WHATEVER you do! Jess P.S. Did you receive that shipment? US Customs seized mine. Damned Customs...
If you're hearing numbers over 16mg a day, I would question it..as the ceiling effect is reached at 16mg for buprenorphine, meaning there is NO added benefit of ever taking more, you would just be stacking the sub, putting excess amounts into your system for no reason. There is an adjustment period, because bupe is a partial agonist compared to the full agonist opiate oxy.
Hi there, JB....I just now have read through this whole thread and find myself REALLY relating to you. I became addicted to pain meds due to numerous medical crises in my life and when the time came to get off of them, I was referred to a sub dr. and ignorantly went on subs and ignorantly jumped off the subs.
Hi there & Welcome! :) First, I want you to know that you're NOT alone & that you're in the right place! There are plenty of folks here in chronic pain & plenty who are either on Subs, tapering or have come off. Can you tell us what sort of pain you're in? What the Subs were prescribed for? While Dilaudid & Fentanyl are commonly used for pain management (& are quite strong), Subutex is not the usual choice for moderate to severe pain (more so in Europe than here).
People seem to get the two mixed. Buspar is a low class of a med and is not in the chart to cause the addiction BUT you can become dependent on it...From my experience I only took these for 2 weeks in sept/oct. Now and then I might take the buspar for certain situation and it does work NOW that I am down the line in recovery. But I like to stay away from all meds...I hope this helps talk to the DR about these they will sure be pleased to give them to you.
(Note, my other handle is percsnomas, just fyi) Refresh my memory, weren't you doing the equivalent of 10 OC 40's or 400mg of oxycontin, plus 100 + mgs of oxycodone??) Thats over 100 percs/day equiv.(sorry, if i've got you mixed up with someone else). I'm extremely proud of you making it this far....remember oxycontin is longer acting(unless you were crushing it, snorting it, etc), SO ITS GOING TO TAKE SOME TIME GETTING OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM. I'm glad you have a doc. who will work with you.
Sorry Nephro I should not talk about it without posting the URL. My old bookmark is toast, but I found this by searching Opiate/Opioid conversion chart. I am not sure if this is correct some look a little off and some look right. My old list was solid and for doctors to reference. This is some guy’s estimation. I'll keep looking, but for now look at this. sorry the url was censored below is the info #Pain Killer Equivalent Doses (Oral) 1.2mg.............Buprenorphine (Bupe) 200mg.........
The emergence of super narcs like buprenorphine and some they still don't have names for promise to provide morphine level pain relief without the euphoria. Bup is already characterized this way. I am reading about new drugs that can distinguish between the opiate receptors that provide pain relief and the ones that get one high. Things are changing. Hope is in the air. This all might become academic.
avisg's on this Forum has done an interesting pain equivalent dose (oral) which you may find interesting. I did, especially as breakthrough pain came at a certain point when I was tapering off subutex. I find it amazing the massive amounts of sub that people in the US are put on for some pretty minor addictions in some cases too! And on both sides of the pond we are definitely NOT given enough info. about just how powerful this drug is!
