Hi there <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> welcome....<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> will take away the urge to take the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>at</span>e</span>s. They usually last 8-10 hrs,approx. If you take both together I am told they will almost "offset" one another. Your son should be under thre care of a doctor to do this at this point. In order to start on the sub,you need to be in total withdrawl from the opiates. Sub can also in itself be an addicitve drug as I'm sure you have read by some of the posts here.

Yes many people get on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> stay on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> for years. It does <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> can become another addiction. He needs to be sick and tired of being sick and tired. The suboxone is still in control he isn't. Does he live with anyone? If he hasn't dealt with his demons and why he abused drugs in the first place and is still on the suboxone 4 years later he isn't ready to make the necessary steps to change his life. Have you attended any alanon or naranon meetings? How long was he in rehab?
I have always heard this was a dangerous mix do you think I am in danger since I have been mixing them for 6 months. I want off methadone. I was given it for chronic pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> from what I have learned about this drug it is from the Devil himself.

I am too scared to tell my ob, I was going to b4 I talked to my sis, she told me a few stories, she said they will automatically contact child services even if I am trying to do better, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> am not taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>at</span>e</span>s anymore!!!!!
Some meds can have very dangerous interactions with cocaine-- MAOI's in particular would be a horrible mix, and would likely cause a stroke or fatal arrhythmia. The modern antidepressants are not as bad in combination with cocaine as are the older medications like nortriptyline. The problems are not so much the lack of feeling as they are related to potentiation of cocaine by meds that affect serotonin and norepinephrine-- namely the antidepressants.
Hello all...My friend just called me from Florida, she is on vacation. She went with her mom and her sister and all of the kids. Her sister is addicted to pain pills. I am not exactly sure what kind, but she admitted to snorting them to get the quicker high. A few weeks ago, my friend went out with her sister because they had not seen each other since Christmas because of all the drug issues. Anyway, her sister told her that she had detoxed from everything and that she was done with all that.
Regarding the comment about mixing xanax <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sub causing death is somewhat suprising. I have a friend who just started suboxone last week, and his doctor sent him home with a script for 30 xanax. I thought it was odd when he told me that, but I'm really wondering about these docs that prescribe suboxone!
I think I am going to kick back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> try to chill for a little bit. I started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> on Tues evening <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> haven't had a perc since then!!! :) I have no complaints - in fact, I can't belive how good I feel. The only problem is that I have had anxiety (I have had issues in the past). I don't know if it's part of some minimal W/D or a side effect of the subox. I do have a prescripton for xanax, but my subox doc said I should be very careful with that and use it sparingly.
to - BMac - yes I know all about benzos <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>at</span>e</span>s - Benzos mega intensify <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>at</span>e</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> being a sick <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> twisted addict I used to like that - I'd take my evening klonopin dose (while I was on sub) and an hour later be nodding out with my face on my dinner plate. Fortunately I have no more sub and just want to get through whatever withdrawls and get back to normal.
I know of people who are on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> benzo's at the same time, most sub doctors dont tend to prescribe both, but some will. Buprenorphine the active opiate in sub is a powerful drug, so taking valium or other benzos can be very dangerous. Whatever you do be completely honest about when your last dose of any opiate was, you have to be in a moderate-severe withdrawal in order to start sub treatment so be honest.
he could very well be doing the subs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>at</span>e</span>s along with it. is the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> prescribed from a doctor or is he self-medicating?? suboxone can cause a dark urine color. if your fiance is taking suboxone he should also be working a recovery program. the subs are meant to help stop the cycle of active addiction and to help them work a recovery program and eventually come off the subs and live opiate free. has he gone to any na or aa meetings? has he been to counseling?
Sub also has a long half life (which means it stays in the system) of about 36-72 hours. Mixing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>at</span>e</span>s can be a pretty dangerous game. Would she be honest with you if you confronted her?
i transitioned successfully from methadone to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>...let me know if you are doing this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> need any help... <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> IF you are switching from methadone to suboxone...14 days might not cut it, as methadone withdrawals CAN last for up to 6 weeks.. i have been on suboxone since may and there are now some studies out there that show long term maintenance with suboxone has a 78% success rate... so as i said, i was a little confused by your post if you going cold turkey all the way? or with suboxone?
I wouldnt even think of mixing the meds, I would wait 36 Hrs. before taking any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> when i do i will start with a 1/8 pill at a time to make damn sure i dont end up doing something stupid, however with that said you are not suppose to break the pill up as it is a time realeased thing, i have in the past with 1/4s trying to detox. My Dr.
I may try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> use the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> again soon after I wean down like I said. I think it will be easier, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the suboxone will then help space apart my dosage of Oxy which will help lessen sides to help me get off completely.
I don't know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> your doctor may not either. Before mixing AD's, get another opinion. Numbness: Your blood vessels may be in spasm but why? Diabetic? Get the lab work he suggested. Tapering on your own: You can do this but be sure you know what you're doing. Do it slowly... A year seems too long to me but I'm not an expert. If you're getting aftercare and feeling like you can taper then you should! Good to hear from you! Keep in touch!
I have been on suboxone for nearly 2 wks now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I did slip once <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> took a few pain pills <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I did not get high at all so I am comfused as to why you are mixing the 2.
I found a clinic near home that said <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> can help minimize the withdrawl symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> wean you off of drugs. Well I started today, and I was wondering if it really is successful? Also, can you have 1 glass of wine while on suboxone. I know it is not recommended, however I am used to having 1-2 glassed at bed time to help me sleep....but I am scared to since I want to wake up tommorrow. I also am scared to take a flexorall muscle relaxer....
Frustrated because I once again relapsed last week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am on Day 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a 1/2 of detox <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am mad at myself. I think I should be on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> because every time I have the chance to relapse, I DO, and I don’t know how to say no, nor do I even consider saying no…too good of a high to give up. That last statement alone is a sign that I need help. and why Im depressed, Im not sure.
Was it from the same doctor that gave you the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>? When he gave you the script did you ask him (the doctor) about mixing Celexa with suboxone.....?
My life was already out of control long before I started doing heroin, but it seems like once I started IV'ing my drugs, it spiraled downhill much faster than it did when I was only snorting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>at</span>e</span>s. Eventually I ended up going to rehab this past February <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have been clean from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>at</span>e</span>s and illegal drugs since. Although it has been hard at times, and some days even as recently as yesterday, I was 'positive' I was gonna buy something (either crack cocaine or heroin) that night.
7 weeks ago he went on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> started to take about 4 mg of klonopin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 50 mg of valium along with 50 mg of seroquel. 5 weeks ago, the doctor started weaning him off the klonopin and changed him from seroquel to trazodone. ( the valium was never prescribed..he just took that on his own ). On his own, he decided to increase his klonopin dosage and add seroquel back to his regimen.
I work at a Methadone Clinic where we also use suboxone and Subutex depending on the person, their dependency <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> other things. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Subutex are used by clinics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Detox units to get through opiate W/Ds. There are now addiction licensed doctors pushing using suboxone and Subutex for pain control. In some places they already do. It is all about money with some doctors and like Methadone as long as you have cash to pay they will give you your fix.
Does this route make sense to anyone or is going to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> a horrible idea <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I should find another way? I have had two friends who have had success with a short term sub detox but everyone is different. Sorry for the long post, I am just confused on what I should do and writing it out helps.
What is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> how it works <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> is a medicine used to treat opioid dependence in the privacy of a physician's office. Buprenorphine is the active ingredient in suboxone. It has unique characteristics that may help reduce cravings and suppress withdrawal symptoms in order to reduce illicit opioid use and support staying in treatment. The way different opioids work can be explained using a lock and key example. Receptors are like a lock to a door.
