Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone and amitriptyline

suboxone

I found a clinic near home that said suboxone can help minimize the withdrawl symptoms and 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....
I do suffer from depression and i am on anti-depressants, i am also taking a drub called suboxone and allot of the side effects seem to be the same as Fibromyalia, the doctor said i could have Fibromyalia - but i feel like nobody noes what is wrong with me. my family has cancer problems and neck tumors so i am really worried. Please can you offer any advice - I would be so great full.
I finally did it - went to Hopkins and got a small fiber nerve biopsy and loads of bloodwork. My neurologist thoroughly examined me and asked exhaustive questions - which is great. Here are the results as I understood them over the phone: Biopsy = normal number of nerve fibers but they are "excessively segmented" and frayed (not sure about the word frayed - but it was something to that effect).
So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity. Or need more info like I do. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http***mb.rxlist.com/rxboard/ultram.pl?noframes;read=3179 not just for breakfast anymore Posted By: mkny Date: Friday, 21 October 2005, at 3:53 a.m.
2700 mgs of neurontin daily, 1 mg of klonipn, 90 mgs of cymbalta, 25 mgs of amitriptyline, and 12 mgs of suboxone.other than the sub, is this a normal medication regime? should i try other meds? should i stop taking any of the meds i am on? are there other meds that people with FMS/CFS take that i am not on or shouldnt be taking??? please, any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated...i am sooo sick of hurting and not living because of the pain...
My doctor prescribed clondine and amitriptyline to help. At first he was thinking of tramadol to which I told him "no way" as apparently he was not aware of how horrible those wd's truly are an the addictive nature of that animal.. The two thing I've quoted about are to help ease the wd stress on the body (clonidine lowers one's BP, the amitriptyline has mild antidepressant qualities along with some pain relieving properties).
1 You will be in a wheelchair by the age of 55-60, you need pain management and surgery. Told me that he knew I was on suboxone, and therefore could not write me any prescription for pain. ( what do they have some kind of data they have access to making it available for them to see that I am taking suboxone?) I was going to tell him but the first thing out of his mouth when he came in the room was that. 2.
People who live the longest sleep 7 hours per night, not eight, so don’t worry about getting 8 hours of sleep. Most people need between 6 and 8 hours of sleep to function effectively during the day. 2.Get out of bed within a half hour of the same time every day, including weekends, no matter how little or poorly you have slept. 3.Reduce your time in bed so that it more closely matches the amount of sleep you average each night. 4.Use the bedroom for sleep and sexual activity only. 5.
Well I started to abuse the pain medicine and just recently got out of treatment for that. I am on Suboxone. It helps with the pain some. I'm back at work full time and having a hard time with the pain. But I don't want to take narcotis anymore. My question is does anybody have any suggestions on what I can do? I don't see my doctor for a few weeks. Also I have extremely dry skin in the web of my hand. I use lotion like there is no tomorrow and it doesn't work.
Come on in and enjoy the conversation and make yourself comfy. This is the place to be to get off and stay off Tramadol!
I didn't tell it but they prescribed amitriptyline for anxiety and trazadone for sleep but I just can't seem to take them. They make me like a zombie. My head is all fogged up if I take it and I still don't sleep. Maybe I'll try not taking anything for a week or two and see what happens. I don't feel depressed but feel very anxious and I also don't sleep.

Hi Tramadol Warriors! Welcome to Part 17! Make yourself at home!
I do have some methocarbamol, amitriptyline and nortriptyline. The methocarbamol knocks me out... I don't know about other ones. They were prescribed for pain...
Hi Tramadol Warriors! Welcome to Part 53. This thread is full of helpful and kind people who want to help you get off this terrible drug. Please snuggle in and make yourself comfy. I know you can do it!
I quit cold turkey one time relapsed and have been on since. I take about four of the seven and a halts a day. And I want to stop so bad but I feel like I do not feel good when I don't take them and am scared of withdrawls again. And I promise myself this summer on vacation I would stop cold turkey again. But as I type I am having a panic attack because I never knew xanax and hydrocodone was a deadly combination.
I actually feel like I'm going crazy if that makes any sense at all....I have to try and function at work on these meds and with the pain and all I want to do is cry.....so Deedee, did you finally quit work then? Are you on Disability?
Love and Healing, Emily
It makes me very angry that these Doctors know and aren't telling people. I don't believe that they are ignorant. I've been over and over it again and again. It makes no sense that I would know more as a user of the drug than they would. There's so little on Tramadol or Ultram on the web. Tons on other drugs. Ok so the most alarming part of the Tramadol we would think would be the fact that it is a synthetic opiate. It's a Narcotic. It's just been slipped thru the schedule.
Welcome ....
Understanding is essential! You can do this. And yes. Eventually you will heal!
Its real hard to say on sleep getting back to "normal". Some people recover it pretty quick and others are still having issues after a month. One thing my doctor prescribed me which was suppose to help "restabilize" my sleep, not knock me out like lets say a sleeping pill, was clonidine and amitriptyline..You may want to talk to your doctor about these as they did seem to help "some".
The first night I slept for about an hour then I got up and went to work. The whole time at work all I wanted to do was go home and sleep. When I got home that was the last thing I could do. I tossed and turned all night. Finally I remembered that I had a few soma that I had taken a long time ago, so I took 1 and I slept for a full 4hrs. I am not going to take anymore soma I just want to be able to stay clear of all meds. Since I've stopped taking norco I've gone through so much.

My surgeon had informed me that the surgery is very complicated and dangerous and does not want to do anything unless he is sure this will not improve with time. He also infomed me that 3 out of 4 of these herniations will get better on there own without sugery. Has anyone gotten better with one of these, has anyone had the surgery? These are rare and no one seems to be able to give me answers.
Meanwhile, I was thinking about killing myself, but I guess addiction fears trump suicide any day (do they think of these things when a patient comes to them with a documentable problem and they just turn them away?) I didn't find a doctor who would treat me for pain until 2006 and he treated me with suboxone until I could afford it no longer. From 2004 until I found him I got pain meds from the internet.
I have been treated for depression since 1991 and am on lexapro and just started gabitril. The problem is that I never sleep well and have become addicted to ambien but do not know how to tell my psych this. I get the ambien over the internet and sometimes take 100mg or more at a time. How do I stop on my own? I cannot afford a clinic and I know my psych will make me go to the hospital if I tell her.
OK so I took some of the input I got here, and I read through many posts and some of the archives, and I met with several doctors and administrators, including the medical director and the wellness director and the CEO of one of our community health care systems. They are interested in working with me to improve their systems for dealing with chronic pain patients. With no other group of patients do we see this hostility between doctors and their patients. I've caught some of it already.
Hi everyone - I have just come across this forum - and would like to ask help and advice. I have been taking nurofen plus (ibuprofen + codeine sulphate 12.8 mg per tablet) for 5 years - I take about 24 tablets per day (all at once - like the feeling along with the pain killing effects) I must give these up - for I understand this is addiction - and must find another way to deal with pain. I guess nurofen is much like tylenol (2? 3? 4?) - dont know which one.
They are not sharp pains but more of a constant 'throb' and can go on for hours. Pain relief medication does nothing and the only relief I can get at all is the application of something topical like '4-Head' or the American 'Head-On'. Although I have been a reasonably 'active' drinker in the past, if anything now, at the age of 61 (male), I rarely have more than two drinks at a time ... which is why I'm surprised at the onset of these headaches.
