Can i take vicodin with suboxone

Common Questions and Answers about Can i take vicodin with suboxone

vicodin

I am buying them illegaly on the street. Besides going to a treatment facility. What can I do before I take that step. I have went through withdraws for two days before I gave in. I take 3 every 3 to 4 hrs a day. Please let me know what to do. If nothing works, I will call a dr and take the steps I need to take.
it is here when you should read your notes of what you went through during your w/ds...... You can do it I swear you can plan it out and focus.......
I really do not have question, I have read all of your posts, done my research and actually went through withdrawl myself, over a year ago.. was clean for 3- 4 months.. and yes... here I am addicted- maybe even a little worse as before. I guess what I am looking for is someone to be by myside this time, when I think I just can't do it anymore, I pick up my laptop, and you or him or she is there... to answer.
Thank the Lord. I swear I had the flu. but after reading this I see this is all normal w/d. I feel like a horrible person. i have a 18month old and 3 year old daughter. i feel i have cheated my husband and kids of the real me for the last year. I need support. I am mad at myself and mad at the Dr. Any advice would be so very greatful.
Won't sleep well, will probably have restless leg syndrome. Google it. Personally, I can't taper. If I have them, I take them, even knowing what's coming. Maybe if you will hold them for him he'll have a chance? After having gone through this several times, someone turned me on to methadone. I take one 10 mg after the symptoms appear. One has actually been all I needed at times, but usually I'll take one for 3 or so days.
Dear Moon Leaf, I was addicted too. I know how you feel. I felt the same. I started with Vicodin & it progressed. I would take anything that was Codiene based. This started 5 years ago. It does make you happy Hell it makes you feel Great! But since I stopped all my true feelings came back. I am so much more HAPPY. I had to go into a treatment center to detox it took 7 days.
Its been a long time since I've posted something, but I just wanted to let everyone know...suboxone i a dream drug. I wa utterly addicted to vicodin..and I am free of my problems thanks to suboxone. I've never been happier..things are truly going great!
That's what I don't understand about addiction because I just have no desire to take anything again, the w/d's cured me of my addiction to vicodin. I am on 2mg of suboxone, go down to 1, can I quit then? What should I do? I appreciate any feedback. I know I am a coward but am not afraid to admit it.
Is that right suboxone experienced people? I wasn't supposed to take any vicodin after 1, but did at 6. I think that means i am going to have major symptoms tomorrow, so I am quite nervous, but just want to get it started. I will be reading and posting on this forum to discuss my progress. I wasn't (and still am not) sure that suboxone is the right choice, but I have been telling myself that I would wean for months and if anything have increased my dose.
I do know that I was overdoing the vicodin 5/500, I couldn't take the vicodin ES since 7.5/750 means even more tylenol. Norcos on the other hand dont matter weather you are 5, 7.5, or 10 mg of hydrocodone, they only have 325 mg of tylenol.
hey there....I take Suboxone. It does work very well for the withdrawals. When you start the suboxone, you have to be in w/d mode - dr told me i could not take anything at least 15 hrs before my appt to start or i would get really sick and the w/d's would be worse. There's also quite a few people on here who are taking it and/or have taken it and are off w/complete success. I've been taking opiates for 10yrs, up to 15-20 vicodin a day .. then over to 80mg oxy's 2-3 a day ..
I used Suboxone for about 10-days to get out of a pretty heavy Hydrocodone Addiction. I was/am dealing with Chronic Back Issues...&, found the pills wearing off, so I took more & more...Then, more just to feel "normal" (which is an ILLUSION by the way). Your brain is so screwed up & it's tricking you. PLEASE TRUST ME! I have been there, scared to death, more than once. But, this time I'm done. I've asked for help & been honest about everything.
But, you see I was in a study with the adapt program. I didn't mess up and take a hydro codone and i found out later if I had, they would have extended my taper. You will do fine on your taper. These drs. have special training for the sub, so your doc will know. You do know you have to go in there in full blown withdrawals, don't you? Keep posting and hang in there.
It was all mental with me and one I got over that I could take it twice a day. I got pregnant when I was on the suboxone and I had to be switched to methadone which I wish they never did. I'm in the process now of switching back to suboxone. I hate being on methadone, its the wors thing ever! Do you know anything about switching from methadone to suboxone? I've been trying to figure out the best way to do it. Any info would be appreciated!
I am glad to have stumbled upon some information on here but would like more if anyone can help. Oh and I should also say.... I have not been taking the Suboxone 3 x's a day, since I have read the some info on here.
Hey everyone - I am on Day 15 of Suboxone. I have dealt a lot with middle of the day fatigue and even my first few days on Sub, I would catch myself dozing off at work!!! If I had to guess why, Id say it was my body's way of telling me that my dose was too high! Since then, I have gotten my doses figured out (with the help of my Dr.) and now I take one 8mg pill every night before bed and sometimes 4 mgs the next day around noon, if needed (more often than not these past few days.
3 hours after I gave birth the nurse brought me 2 vicodins to help with pain. I was sent home with to RX for Vicodin. Well I took them, was fine when I ran out. But then 1 month later I injuried my knee during older daughters cheer practice. Well went to my Dr and bam they gave me Vicodin. Sent to a Ortho and More pain pills. I never Dr. shopped or anything like that, But this medical group was great for giving me pain pills.
i can't remember exactly what association it was (you'll see it when you research suboxone online), i was able to make an appt. with a dr. (i believe by law they are only allow to treat up to 100 people), went to see him--he explained the entire process, gave me a shot, and prescription for sub. i paid him $245, because most insurance wouldn't cover it; got the prescription for $8-$10 (insurance covered that), and of course, really encouraged me to see addiction counselling, as well.
I am interested in detoxing with Suboxone. Can anyone tell me how much money I will need to do this? I have been taking way to much for a short period of time but I know my W/W will be the worst I've ever felt before. I finished 400 Tramadol in about 30 days and have 200 left. Now they just make me feel normal. Sick also. There is no high left or me. I just want out of this ****. Thanks for your help.
Suboxone has a ceiling effect that keeps you from getting blasted. I have no diea how you were able to get "high" from taking Suboxone, it binds to tightly to your brain, that it will only allow so much of the drug to be absorbed at one time(32 mgs) is a roguh estimate of the max, depending on your body type.
Hi, I will be in your shoes (almost) in January. But I take sub from a dr. I take 16mg a day. When I found out I needed 6 teeth pulled for dentures, UGH! I freaked. I hate dentists & dental pain. I spoke to both sub dr & dentist who agree as I do that the sub will block the pain b/c it has helped with my back pain since I started it. lower back pain. I don't know if the small amnt you take will help with pain. But I personally wouldn't risk taking a opiate with sub in your system.
Im scared to take Suboxone but then I cant seem to get off the Vics on my own. If I am on Sub for a short time (2-3 months) and taper slowly, will i go through a worse withdrawal than I would just going off of vicodins? The nurse I spoke to told me that I will go through some withdrawal but its not the same (as bad) as it would be withdrawaling off of oxys, percs or vics.
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.
My doctor suggested that I find a doc. that can prescribe me Suboxone. So that is what I did. I have an appt. for Tues. I am very nervous and scared. I don't know what to expect. I feel like I have to convince this doctor to help me. Like he may say that I don't have a problem because I only take a few pills a day. But when I don't have any pills, I spend my whole day crying because I feel so depressed. I have to work full time and I don't know what Sub. is going to make me feel like.
I have called and left a message to make an appointment. I figured I might as well post this so I can give you guys updates - just in case anyone wants to try it too. I know that I can no longer do this on my own and if I do not have to feel the brunt of the w/d's more power to me right? So that is my plan. I will let you guys know how it goes tomorrow. Hopefully I can get in tomorrow!
i have a manual transmission, and so far, i feel pretty crappy in the morning- like i used to feel when i had been out drinking the night before- a hangover feeling is the best way i can describe it. i went ahead and made another appointment with a different pain management clinic, but i dont have a very good feeling about it.
My son's 4 year daughter comes in in the middle of the night and crawls in bed with them. I can understand why my son is so depressed. Thank you for your information. Please pray for my son and me. I feel like I'm losing my mind.
I didn't get a buzz on the percs other than pain relief, So it was back on with my life and suboxone. As I said suboxone is only a partial opioid antagonist.
I hated taking it because I was sick a lot, but it also saved me from a life time of misery. I can tell you, I 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 have to say that reading everyone's stories helps a lot. i love reading the ones with positive outcomes. addiction is such a hard thing, i give so much credit to anyone who is strong enough to overcome it!
