Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone and celexa

suboxone

I have been on Celexa for over a year now. When I kicked the methadone clinic, I was on 16mg suboxone, and 40mg Celexa, under doctors supervision. I never noticed any side effects from the combination. Hope this helps.
I went to a Suboxone doctor for the first time and he really never asked me If I was on any other medication. I take 40mg of Celexa a day and now I am on 16mg of Suboxone a day. My question is, is it ok to mix the 2??
Negative thoughts consume my days, Has anyone out there had experience with alchohol nd suboxone??? im also on celexa 20mg for 9 years. I dodnt know what to do. Where to begin??? PLEASE HELP. THIS IS HELL ON EARTH.
You/we are not meant to be unhappy and miserable and I believe there is a solution out there for you. I was not aware that Suboxone was used for depression. I know you have pain and I am wondering if medically if there is a better medication to treat your depression. It sounds like you have been on a lot of different meds. Have you ever saw a Depression Specialist. Sometime or Primary Care doctors treat depression with a shot gun approach.
of course,and the subs also beats running around sick trying to find vics,perc,oxy,s ect....It sounds like alot of people are really hard on themselves,trying to fast to get better,I happen to have a great dr thats working with me to get off of sub,s,so i am tapering,tapering.tapering,slow.
So ive been on suboxone almost 1 week now for my Norco addiction and it has been helping with the cravings.. I also started Celexa but iam getting sick from it..... I was wondering what i should ask my doc to put me on instead? i need something for my depression but Celexa just isnt the right medication... anyone have any advice and maybe what u r taking?
I am currently undergoing a self imposed suboxone taper and I am going to chronicle it here so that perhaps it may lend insight to someone else that may be struggling with the same thing. A bit about me: I am a 48 year young woman that has struggled with addiction from the age of 18. I hit all the major markers for the "classic addict"....neglect and abuse as a child, molestation, trauma, and rape.

that is a specialist on substence abuse and he said that one i was on a too low dose of suboxone and also he change it to subutex 8mg insted of suboxone 3mg, I have not started the subutex yet and i feel weird going up but I do understand why he is doing it cause I keep falling back to the pills. So my question for the ones that know is it the same thing suboxone and subutex not quimicly but in our point of view?
I recently posted about getting off narcs and going on sub. I read about it and decided to detox on my own. Thanks because I believe it was the right decision. My question is that I was prescribed Wellbutrin 2X's a day. This was for depression and I have been on it awhile. I was wondering if this might help with getting off the pills. Does anyone know if it can help? I know it is dangerous to take them with the narcs. I am done today after weaning myself down.
To be honest with you the wd i suffered from after sub was a good 20 days or so. Now with that being said, everyday got better and better and sleep finally came and the anxiety lessened and before you know it you feel great, it takes time and as addicts we tend to want immediate results. I did go lower than 1 i went to half and that was under the care of a doctor, i did it in rehab.
But I also found out something. I was taking my anti dep. celexa and I didn't take it yesterday and after I woke up no chills. WAIT2LONG do you take anti dep? I go back to my doc this friday and I am going to ask him too.. haha It crazy but I also say its well worth it.
I looked all around and so far I haven't heard many good things about it. I have been on Celexa in the past and I gained weight. I tried Zoloft, Paxil and Prozac and they made me nuts. I tried Luvox and that made me a zombie. Wellbutrin made me anxious. SOOOOO, my question is are there any others I should try or should I just do the Subuxone an not try any new antidepressants. I was thinking about trying Buspar but I'm not sure. Maybe antidepressants just aren't for me.
I went to rehab 2 years ago and have been on suboxone ever since. At one time I was taking 4 8mg tabs a day but am now down to 1. I have read that opiate abuse damages the brain's ability to produce endorphins, and that opiates mimic the effects of endorphins on the brain. I have always battled depression and still do. I have tried countless antidepressants but they no longer work on me, even when augmented with abilify.
The next day, a psychiatrist came in and interviewed me further about my drug use. I was also totally honest with him. He prescribed me Celexa and left. Shortly after, I requested more morphine as I was in legitimate pain. The nurse came in with the morphine, but after checking a computer she told me she could not administer it because it was no longer prescribed to me, but said I had some percocets prescribed.

My doctor explained to me the chemistry of w/d, serotonin depletion, and how to use celexa as a TOOL to boost levels in order to achieve regeneration and balance. I took the celexa---with nothing else but .05 clonidine at 8pm. 20mg celexa in the AM, with the UNDERSTANDING that I would give it 2 wks to see how i felt, and 4 months total of use. Right at the two week mark, maybe even a few days before, I felt the lifting.
I can easily go downstairs and get a suboxone if I wanted it but am trying so hard to kick once and for all. I have 60 Trazadone is that safe to help me sleep? I have no energy and feel like shiyat. I know I gotta pay for the fun I had somehow, but man, this was not supposed to be part of my life. What helped anyone else get through sub withdrawl? I am looking forward to a clean memorial weekend trip with all my friends.
I had no money, bills piling up, and I had blown through all of my student loan money, and had borrowed hundreds of dollars from family and friends. I knew all about Suboxone, and how much it helped. I found a Doctor who prescribed it, and made an appointment. I started on a low dose of 4mg twice a day. It has been 2 months now, and I take 4mg 3 times a day. After the first visit with this Doctor I was sent home with several scripts. Suboxone 2mg and 8mg.
This post is turning more into a rambling story of what could be anyones life .,, but for me had I not been on suboxone and the dr & counsler to help through it all, I would have never made it. I know that for a fact. It doesn't take much to hord allot of pills & some booze,(which I don't even drink) rent a hotel room for 3 days paid and say bye bye. So if I need subixone for the rest of my life, so be it.
Starting Buprenorphine was the smartest thing I have done in a long time but more so that I found a doctor who was 'cool' and was actively involved in learning about Suboxone and keeping up with the latest info on this treatment. However, I thought six months ago my sex drive would have come back after a few years of opioid addiction. My Doctor prescribed Wellbutrin last month as he said there have been reports of Wellbutrin having a positive affect on the libido.
I am trying to figure out if maybe the brain recognizes that it is only getting a certain amount of Dopamine or Serotonin, and a medication like Celexa detects this and produces the remaining amount needed for normal brain function. Or if the SSRI won't produce even a little bit, if it is getting even a sliver of Suboxone still.
Fentanyl is an extreme opiate if I remember correctly and you quitting that CT will for sure give you some anxiety and depression even when taking the perks (IMO). I to suffer with anxiety and depression and have been on and off celexa for years while abusing perks 10mg as well. What I have done recently is quit the perks via suboxone, currently at 1mg dose from 6mg, started that about 2 weeks ago. Before that, about a week before, I started back on my celexa.
I went ahead and did Suboxone because I tried the taper plan and I ended up taking more than I should and ran out... I know what you mean about Depression, for me I was mildly depressed while I was on Norco/Vicodin but then when I got off completely, I was severly depressed and thought ," damn do I need those pills to make me happy?
I was prescribed Suboxone (I was completely unfirmilar with the drug at the time, but am know quite knowledgable) and weaned off it over 1 and a half months. And even when I stopped taking the Suboxone I felt pretty sick and out of it for a couple weeks. In hindsight, part of me wishes I would have just dealt with the original withdrawl. In the end I sort of looked at Suboxone as just another pain medication, although it is somewhat different.
If he has no tolerance to opiates and took an 8 mg suboxone, Im pretty sure that could make him vomit and be sick. I had a huge tolerance and got sick the first week or two on subs.
Anyone use to use Norco? its my DOC and im clean due to suboxone and Celexa Is anyone familar with celexa and how has it helped you?
I have had panic and anxiety since I can remember. I was on celexa and also took Attivan when needed. I have now stopped taking them since I am pregnant with my second child. With my first child I stopped taking them too and did ok while I was pregnant. Then went back on the meds. after my child was born. I have really found that going to therapy helps ALOT and also I have a book that has helped me so much named The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook by Edmund J. Bourne PH.D. This book is awesome.
