Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone and ibuprofen

suboxone

Okay so my question is about suboxone. I too for your years struggled with narcotic pain pill addiction and eventually found the oh so awful methadone and thought that was the way out. Needless to say I found this out the long and hard painful way. So anyway after being on the methadone for two years I had to get off and ten months later found myself with an even worse pill addiction than before. So now I am on sub. I am prescribed two strips a day. Do I take them together or seperately?
However, if I recall, it is typically used in a very low dose and also as IV, or injection. If your current dose of suboxone and the ibuprofen are working, then stick with it. If you feel you need more pain relief, check with your doctor, he may be able to advise you there. Hang in there.
I can appreciate your reference to Suboxone above and what you state is true for Suboxone. Subutex(buprenorphine) is different in that it doesn't contain Narcan. While on this subject, BuTrans IS delivered in mcg. That's true. But,it's mcgs. per HOUR.
Get off of them now to reduce the potentially horrifying detox/PAWS of Suboxone and just hope and pray that my headaches don’t get the best of me and just stay clean?" How's that for a loaded question with the longest preface know to humankind? Lol!
I have been on suboxone since the end of feb I started out 8mg and I am now down to 0.75mg. I went down 2mg ever 3 days until I got to 2mg then I went down to 1mg. I had to stay at 1and 2 mg a few days longer to allow myself to stabilize and the w/d to decrease. Once I got to 1mg I'm going down 0.25mg until I'm only taking 0.25mg then I'm going to start skipping days then stop. I hope this helps.
Then I heard of a friend who got off by using suboxone. So i called my local Physc. Doc and made the appointment. Took my first suboxone and 20 minutes later felt like a million dollars. I had done it. I had gotten off Opiates. This was going to be a breeze!! If I had just know then, I could have strangled my doctor while I was there..... OK...enough of me. You didn't come here to read about me. You want off the damn Suboxone. Here goes... *1. Number one and most important of all.
Although you may get a minor headache the first few days. Ibuprofen will take care of that. Good luck and keep us updated.
hang in there. it is ok to take 400-600 mgs of ibuprofen and it does work...of course if you cant take ibuprofen, tylenol may help also... hang in there and take some advil lay down and just relax for a bit...it does help... if you ever have any questions about sub, just send me a message, ok? take care and good luck!
Two years of addiction, being broke, misery, losing friends and family....OVER! I did have to go to a doctor and get a prescription for Suboxone. Maybe it's just me, but I almost feel like I'm switching from one addiction to another. Although I'm not constantly counting pills and dollars, I'm still taking a pill daily. I have already tapered myself from 2/day to 1.5/day and felt no withdrawal symptoms whatsoever. I've heard the withdrawal from Suboxone can be terrible... Is this true.
Are you taking both Diluadids and Suboxone and/or wanting to? Like TrayCee said, Suboxone's is primarily used for withdrawal. Are you seeing two different doctors?
I've been on suboxone for a year and my doctor and I decided that it's time to come off. I did a slow taper down to .5 grams per day. I'm on day 5 and can't stand the inability to sleep.Any advice on this and how long this is going to last? I'm super frustrated. Thanks for any feedback.
So needless to say I had to get my butt to a suboxone doctor today and he started me on 8mg of suboxone. I FEEL LILE SICH A FAILIRE!! SERIOUSLY TJE WHOLE TIME USING OVER THE LONG UEARS I ALWAYS SAOD THAT OF I COILD GST THE WOTHDRAWLS AND GET A COUPLE MONTHS OF "CLEAN TIME" UNDER MY BELT THEN I WOULD BE HOME FREE BABY YEAH!!!!!!
It may not have seemed long to you, but 14 weeks can be a long time with Suboxone and the withdrawal is difficult. Everyone is different. What else have you tried to ease the discomfort such as otc medications or anything?
teva clonidine, apo-ibuprofen and teva-trazodone. I went back to work, still feeling good and i will be honest that while my friend was driving i started to get high, called the doctor and told him about it and he said it is normal. Got to the office did my thing.
For those of you who have pain and are on suboxone, what do you take and what works best for you dealing with pain? I know everyone is different, but just curious what non-narcotic pain meds are out there and do they work as well as the narcs??
I agree. I was prescribed 8mg suboxone and asked many times why? And realize I was only a meal ticket. And I detoxed almost 2 months ago. And still waiting for that 90 day mark. Hope it comes soon. So I am not so depressed unmotivated and weak and I am getting massages acupuncture every week because after or in the middle if detox. I was so scared ended up at advertised New Beginning clinic in Florida.
How long will suboxone withdrawal last? I am at 39 days off suboxone and still experiencing mild withdrawal. I was on sub. for around 2 1/2 yrs. and jumped off at 12mg. It is definitely not as bad as the first few weeks but this is lasting forever. I had to withdraw from college this quarter and haven't been back to work for a while. Is anyone going through the same situation?
I am a 68 yr old woman on Suboxone, 3 huge cavities and in pain. I understand that I must wait 3 days with no subs to face possible extraction. Will novocaine work? Will painkillers work? What can I do to relieve the pain now? Tried ambesol. help!! in pain.
I wanted off of opiates due to stomach problems and constipation-I took Suboxone for about 1.5 and got off with some withdrawls-I lost about 10 lbs and I took a few days off of work and got through it. Since then I have had bouts of pain that i have been trying to control with Robaxin, Ibuprofen-lately I have been taking norcos -up to 2 a day-I notice I am starting to go with w/d if I don't take it.
I've been on 12-16mg of suboxone for 5 days now and i keep getting terrible headaches. I feel fine other than the pain in my head. I dont get the headaches every day but have had them 3 out of the 5 days now. Just want to know if this is expected and if there is anything i can do to help take it away. Any help is appreciated!
Took some ibuprofen and its letting up some but I do have to say when I woke up this morning the room and everything I looked at looked brighter and more clear. Did this happen for you? Really weird..almost like the fog was lifting off of my brain everything looked real sharp. Keep up the great work..remember your progress is inspiring me. If you do this then I can too so if you suceed then 2 people have!
I am currently on day 3 without any suboxone and I am doing ok. I slept about 5 hours the first night and about 4 hours the next (in 2 hour blocks) symptoms are definitely worse when trying to sleep. I also was able to take a nap for a couple hours today. I would say my worst symptoms so far are a stiff neck and restless legs. Everything seems manageable so far. I am taking no prescriptions except a thyroid med and i take OTC ibuprofen and vitamins. I will try and update every day or so.
8 days and today has started a little easier aslong as I stay put. When I get up I am faint-headed and dizzy and my back hurts continuously. I have been weaning myself off oxy's for the last year and switched to subs for two weeks before I quit. I was taking 4 mg. every day or two except when my back pain was bad as I did on my last dose when I took 8 mg. Will that effect my recovery time? I had been on opiates for almost 20 years.
Been through a few WD from, Vicodin,meth,heroin,pills and drinks, But always gone around in a circle, Tried coming off before went from heroin to subutex and eventually ended up taking Vicodin and now been on suboxone for a while but think its time to stop...
I was going through wicked Withdrawal,admitted to a detox for a week and started on the Suboxone there.I talked to my Dr and she said she will take me down to 12 mgs,for my next refill and then if it goes ok will start to wean lower after that.I really want to get off it . So hopefully this will work.All told I probably will be on it for 5 months.weaning off of it,any withdrawal cant be as bad as getting off the oxys.I am in pain anyway with my back but that magnetized the pain 20x worse.
Again, straight up, on the second day after I took my 8mg film, I started to feel sick, so on the third day, I didn’t take anything, no oxy nor suboxone. The only thing I took was about 10 Advil’s and 3-4 800mg ibuprofen for my pain.
Bottom line, she is now 9-10 days off Suboxone and dealing with it with Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Lorazepam, hot baths. I will go get the vitamins you mentioned and the Highlands restful legs. Have been trying so hard to find something more natural to help her. Horrible to watch and so helpless feeling. Been praying a lot. Thanks so much.
I have taken suboxone before to help with wd during detox and in my experience, you can get addicted to it and yes you can have wd after you stop taking the suboxone. For me, i am on day 3 of my wd and decided it was best to go cold turkey this time because using the suboxone lasttime only prolonged my symptoms and as soon as i didnt take it i was having the wds again. gl stay strong you can do this... have you tried to taper off first?
regardless iam know fully hooked and any time i attempt to quit iam pounded with extreme fatigue and nausea and pretty much feel like dying. my question is how long should i expect for the sub to leave my system and get me back on my feet like when i was in the marine corps. i have lost close to 25 pounds and cannot even attempt to hit the gym extremely depressing from my usual lifestyle months ago.
I was addicted to percocet and vicodin for about two years on and off and went into treatment for that. I am now addicted to the suboxone which I even told my doctor and he didn't want to wean me. This is nothing but a money maker for doctors. I have weaned myself down from 16 mg a day...down to six mg on my own and I am now on 2 mg/day....but I am nauseous and severely depressed since my NEW doctor lowered my dose.
