Common Questions and Answers about Can i take oxycodone with suboxone


i've been taking about 60-80 mg per day of ilight>oxycodoneilight> and ilight>iilight> thnk it might be time for me to stop. ilight>iilight> know that it's gonna be pure hell when ilight>iilight> stop, but ilight>iilight> was just curious how long W\D will last for?? any info would be great!
i will no longer make fun of my gf for her menstrual cramps because ilight>iilight> thought ilight>iilight> was being stabbed. ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> finally eat and move without hurting now. ilight>iilight> feel like iam almost me again but i can't brag as iam not out of the woods yet everyday is a freaking struggle. i also have a question as ive stated i can easily say i may have had about 2 hours of sleep the last 4 days and i feel like iam having panic attacks sometimes. How long until i feel 100%?
So instead of giving up and trying for disability ilight>iilight> worked ilight>withilight> my doc and found meds that worked. ilight>iilight> ilight>takeilight> cymbalta, tramadol, oxycontin and vicodin. Now i can get through a 6 hour work day and sometimes do one or 2 thinks at home before i am too painful to function. i am not a smoker or a drinker and i dont do recreational drugs. i am an RN and i do know that people have a hard time even healing if they are in pain. Just a thought.
i feel like a just woke up from a long and tired daze. ilight>iilight> have consumed 6 mg of ilight>suboxoneilight> and so far ilight>iilight> don't feel a single withdrawal symptom from oxycontin. i usually have some pretty bad lower back pain, vomiting rarely, and other symptoms after about a day or two of not using but so far i feel great. i am going to continue taking the suboxone.
Then i drank almost every night towards the end of the school year just because ilight>iilight> thought ilight>iilight> was so cool to be under age drinking. Tonight ilight>iilight> don't have ANY ilight>oxycodoneilight> left, ilight>iilight> can't say i wish i didn't! My husband enjoys stressing me out a bit too much and when he does that it leads me straight for the drugs! This is my first night without and so far i am doing fine. Gee, i bet i won't be this good tomorrow night! Please send me any message! Thanks!
So right now the only thing i take is suboxone and finding out this is really hard to get off. ilight>canilight> ilight>iilight> ilight>withilight> help off vicoprofen 7.5/325 get off ilight>suboxoneilight>?. Not shure if ilight>iilight> posted this in the right place. Also the worst med i been on was tramadol had severe whidrawals for 1 month.
But if this med will help me ilight>withilight> the withdrawals and ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> stop taking it ilight>withilight> no problme ilight>iilight> would love the help of it. Anyone have advice?
i'm sorry ilight>iilight> have no advice on the Sub. But ilight>iilight> will say that if you truly want to quit you can do this and if your girl is special enough to marry then she is a strong enough reason to want to quit.
Word to the wise...get off the ilight>suboxoneilight> as fast as you ilight>canilight>. Begin a taper ilight>withilight> your doctor. ilight>suboxoneilight> has a long half life so you should taper coming off. The withdrawal from suboxone is bad that is why i am encouraging you. i don't want to see you trade one drug for another.
FLaddict posted some info about Sub in a string i started on 10/04/07 titled "i got off Sub, and so can you". it was all info i never got when i started a Sub program, and if it's accurate it seems like something patients should all be made aware of when they first start taking Sub. What she says seems to make sense, and she claims to have done a lot of research into Sub. if it's true its important to know so that people don't get strung out on Sub by taking it for too long.
He is also very involved ilight>withilight> AA. ilight>iilight> know this is off the subject, what ilight>iilight> was getting to is ilight>iilight> hope they are making him go to therapy. There are some doctors that are prescribing this without therapy to go along with it. They are making a bunch of money, and my doc said that this was unethical. As far as the medication is concerned you'll be happy to know that it is very hard for a person to overdose on this.
i was wondering if its possible to use suboxone for a week or two at the most to get of hydrocone addiction. Would ilight>iilight> suffer WD from the ilight>suboxoneilight>? What's the most ilight>iilight> could ilight>takeilight> to prevent wd's from the suboxone. it makes since to me but maybe it's just wishful thinking? Please advise because i'm so tired of living like this!
i am no longer obsessed ilight>withilight> getting more pills and ilight>iilight> never ilight>takeilight> too much or run out early. This ilight>iilight> think will also help me learn how to take drugs as prescribed which is a huge deal for me. i am fortunate that my insurance is paying most of this. i don't pay anything for doctor visits or intensive outpatient (i have double coverage) and my co-pay for suboxone is $40. Before i was paying about $200 a month for my oxycodone.
he really should be doing some research and read and ask anything he can before he goes to his appointment, so he is well informed on how ilight>suboxoneilight> works and the ways it ilight>canilight> be used... ilight>iilight> have had a positive experience with suboxone and it has really worked for me...but it should be used as a tool, and in conjunction with therapy or meetings of some kind, some doctors require it... good luck and if he has any questions have him post or send a private message. good luck!
Did i read your profile correctly, that you are facing a third back surgery soon? if this is correct ilight>iilight> don't think you ilight>canilight> start ilight>suboxoneilight> therapy until the surgery is compete AND you've stopped using the pain mgmt meds. it would be helpful to know more amount your current usage and why you're interested in suboxone. i think many of my peers here would view suboxone as a method of last resort. Keeping posting your questions.
i hated taking it because ilight>iilight> was sick a lot, but it also saved me from a life time of misery. ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> tell you, ilight>iilight> ahve ZERO cravings for any type of pill. i am back to my normal weight lifting schedule. i have my energy back. Life is good again. BUT...... AND i MEAN BUTTTTTTT. it had it's cost. My doctor told me Subutex withdrawal would be very mild, and would last a couple of weeks. i would have a slight headachem but i would be OK. WRONG.....
i would have to say for myself and my experience methadone was what worked best for me and ilight>iilight> hope if ilight>iilight> am unsuccessful ilight>withilight> sticking to the ilight>suboxoneilight> , ilight>iilight> really hope ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> get my methadone back...i might be screwed on that one. my advice to you would be to go back on oxy for 2-4 weeks and then try suboxone again, its only really difficult to switch from long acting opiod like methadone that stays in your system for weeks compared to oxy that is gone in under 24 hrs...
i found this forum which is a HUGE help. And ilight>iilight> am filling my head ilight>withilight> as much knowledge and advise as ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> absorb. Another thing, and in my opinion is what is helping me the most this time is Patience. Only he can make the choice to be clean and it is not easy for them. i have been doing a lot of listening and not a lot of talking. When he feels like ****, i draw him a bath. When he is feeling anxiety, i rub his back. Bottom line for me is, if they want to be off the drugs they will.
about a 20-25 mg habit per day on and off for 3 years. So ilight>iilight> decided to stop and used ilight>suboxoneilight>. ilight>iilight> had 3 1/2 8mg films and cut them into 6-8 pieces. i started with 3 pieces per day a week before christmas. i slowly cut myself to 1 small piece per day...and yesterday i took my last piece. Will i suffer withdraw symptoms? i used a total of 28 mg this entire time...and also how long will it take to be out of my system?
ilight>suboxoneilight> and methadone are drugs that ilight>canilight> turn lives around. ilight>iilight> am currently on 53mg of methadone i am in the process of switching to suboxone a drug that's easier to get off of and is safer in my book. He will be able to live a normal life one with out stealing and lies. My advice is be supportive, most of these drugs require you have help thru their therapists and some have you attend support groups as well. it is commonly refered to as a suboxone program protecal.
Yes i agree ilight>withilight> you. im not sure if ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> stay clean ilight>withilight> out it.So far ilight>iilight> always go back after like 3 months clean.
i want to ween with suboxones so i picked up ten of them. ilight>iilight> understand ilight>iilight> will have so rough days but how would you taper ilight>withilight> this many? ilight>iilight> ilight>canilight> get more subs but would like to see if i can do it with this amount. Do i suck on these or eat them? Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated.
it takes A LOT of determination and before you know it you will have put the monster in its cage and have control of your life again and not have it run by a pill. You ilight>canilight> do it and ilight>iilight> think you know you can't stay on the road your on so ilight>iilight> would call the doc first thing in the morning and get in to see him and take it from there. Keep posting and read peoples posts, there is so much you can learn from others. i went through wds, horrible wds, and the mental part caught me off guard.
i've resently started using ilight>suboxoneilight> 2mg...and ilight>iilight> do not want to continue to ilight>takeilight> it....but now i smell the almond scent i once smelled when fighting my previous addiction to oxycodone 30mg roxy...running nose...trouble sleeping, feels like i m back where i started....i want to be free from all toxicity.....what can i do?????
There isn't anyone that ilight>canilight> be trusted not to ilight>takeilight> the 30s themselves :) sad ilight>iilight> know. ilight>iilight> have back and neck problems but am ready to live with the pain versus not feeling much of anything i heard of a new drug called subutex.
Day 2 and ilight>iilight> feel sick...if ilight>iilight> ilight>takeilight> ilight>suboxoneilight> during my 5 day sickness then stop all pills after 5th day will i have to go through this again?
At the end of the 6 weeks there is an option to go on maintenance @ the dose you felt the most comfortable at. ilight>iilight> already know that ilight>iilight> want to go maintenance because ilight>iilight> work ilight>withilight> the drug giving it to people in pain, it is too much of temptation. The nurse that i am in contact with whenever i need her is aware that i want to go on maintenance, but is rather insistent that i detox down to the lowest dose before i go on maintenance.
i take up to 150 MG a day of ilight>oxycodoneilight>, ilight>iilight> am trying to get off because ilight>iilight> feel as if ilight>iilight> don't need the meds anymore, ilight>iilight> have found a different non-narcotic to help ease the pain. i am not pain free but the oxycodone is worse than the pain i am in. i can't seem to get off the oxt though, i am experiencing extremely bad withdrawals, and i can't seem to get any help from my doctors. i have even tried to go to a detox, but i have to abuse the drug in order to get into the program.
ilight>iilight> don't think another pain doc will ilight>takeilight> you on if you go in asking for more ilight>oxycodoneilight>. What else do you do for the pain? Pills alone are not the way to go. There are gels, patches, ibuprofen, PT, procedures, etc. When you use several things together, you will usually get better pain relief. And of course, it's unlikely to ever get pain free. Snorting or shooting your meds in an iV is putting you on a very dangerous path that will not end well.
Yes i have chronic pain too but found after getting clean that my pain was much more tolerable and when it does get bad ilight>iilight> usually ilight>takeilight> Advil. ilight>iilight> can't worry about the future, ilight>iilight> will deal ilight>withilight> it when it arrives but i am clean today and i'm doing ok. i agree with Vicki, you will have the best training available for dealing with opiates and addiction in general. i have a friend in NA that went to see his doctor and he really opened up to him about his addiction.
