suboxone

Avatar n tn I found a clinic near home that said suboxone 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....
Avatar f tn Hello - I'm brand new to this website and forum, but have been researching extensively online with regards to pain management <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>, in particular, Suboxone treatment for chronic pain. I have been suffering from chronic pain (daily) for over 4 years now, and have been taking opiates as prescribed.
1560356 tn?1294838700 I do suffer from depression <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i am on anti-depressants, i am also taking a drub called suboxone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
280418 tn?1306329510 I finally did it - went to Hopkins <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> got a small fiber nerve biopsy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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).
10623623 tn?1414295689 I was on a tricyclic AD called amitriptyline for about 90 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> wanted to let you know that they do come with a discontinuation syndrome of their own. They also affect a certain neurotransmitter that can cause weight gain...they certainly did for me. Since you are on suboxone right now, I'm a little surprised your dr thought you needed this AD.....but because of your high use of Ambien, he must have determined it was in your best interest.

Avatar f tn 2700 mgs of neurontin daily, 1 mg of klonipn, 90 mgs of cymbalta, 25 mgs of amitriptyline, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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...
Avatar m tn My doctor prescribed clondine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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).
707647 tn?1251492147 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
424839 tn?1268189846 1 you will be in a wheelchair by the age of 55-60, you need pain management <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> surgery. Told me that he knew I was on suboxone, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar f tn Well I started to abuse the pain medicine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
544292 tn?1268886268 Come on in and enjoy the conversation and make yourself comfy. This is the place to be to get off and stay off Tramadol!
Avatar m tn I didn't tell it but they prescribed amitriptyline for anxiety <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar f tn She is now in hearing aides with amplifiers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> her voice is begin effected now too. We have had several MRI's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> MRA's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ct scans done all coming back normal. Several blood tests too, negative on Lyme disease, and some genetic testing too once again all normal except the ANA titer was slightly elevated. She has had a spinal tap too. Her meds are Neurotin 1200 tid, Elavil 100 hs, Trileptal 600 bid, and others for diabetes and asthma and depression.
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its cannabinoid test <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors! Welcome to Part 17! Make yourself at home!
Avatar f tn I do have some methocarbamol, amitriptyline <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> nortriptyline. The methocarbamol knocks me out... I don't know about other ones. They were prescribed for pain...
Avatar m tn (There's a lot to consider, so to properly research these should take weeks and months, not just a day or two.) 1.) Suboxone 2.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors! Welcome to Part 53. This thread is full of helpful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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!
Avatar f tn I was taking 40 of them a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the only thing that got me off them was suboxone, which unfortunately I am still taking 3 years later. I am weaning myself off the suboxone, which is hard given they come in these bi-lingual strips you put under your tongue, decreasing those little strips in a PAIN, but suboxone saved my life and I only take one 2.5mg strip a day down from two 8mg. strips. Tramadol was my reason for living, and it nearly killed me several times.
Avatar m tn I quit cold turkey one time relapsed and have been on since. I take about four of the seven <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a halts a day. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
544292 tn?1268886268 It makes me very angry that these Doctors know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> aren't telling people. I don't believe that they are ignorant. I've been over <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. you also will never need an understanding ear as much. you can do it. you can quit. you do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
544292 tn?1268886268 Understanding is essential! you can do this. and yes. Eventually you will heal!
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome ....
Avatar f tn you are just having a bad reaction to naltrexone which is possible occurance in people. Hence why I chose subutex <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> not suboxone (with the naltrexone in it). It's known to give bad side effects as you describe.
1462830 tn?1286663971 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".
11532111 tn?1421553458 It is scary to face withdrawal, that fear kept me on Suboxone for 3 years. I cant give you taper advice, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am concerned about your Dr. It seems he/she would want you to come off of everything to see where your pain level is truly at, the pills eventually make the pain worse. I am not surprised they want to give you suboxone, but just be informed before you decide on that. you will be chained to taking the Subs every day instead of the pills, and it is a very strong opiate in itself.
Avatar f tn I have been prescribed Flexeril for over a year, as a muscle relaxant for long term back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> neck pain... I was told it was a 'safe' drug, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> not to worry about it - it was not addicting. Now, after taking it for this long, I have re-read the patient information packet, and see that it is only for short term use, and I cannot find information on how to titrate off. I get migraine headaches whenever I stop taking it for any length of time, as well as other symptoms...
