Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone and kidneys

suboxone

What is suboxone? Ive seen a ton of posts about people who love it, and people who hate it... Im just wondering what it is.
I definitely wouldn't go with suboxone, it's stronger and a longer detox than what you've been taking. It would probably make you high and/or give you headaches. The easiest, least painful way is a slow taper. We can't give taper schedules on the forum, we're not doctors, but it's just like it sounds. Take a little bit less and stabilize, then drop a little more. For example, you say 2-3 Percocet, stop doing the occasional 3rd, even if you want it. The lower you get the less you want to drop.
Hey I have been on suboxfilm for like ever and have been through the ringer with opiate addiction for the last 8 to 10 years and have been on and off suboxone the whole time I'm a cronic relapser and it's not perks anymore and has not been for the last five years at times I have been a full blown heroin addict hopefully never again. Although this time is the first time in my life that since I stopped using I have no reservations to get high as I always have had in the past which is fukin great.
I was on suboxone one time and my doctor explained to me about the half life and i remember him saying it has a 36 hours
I am glad u r adjusting to the suboxone and staying clean...i do like to read posts on progress with the sub as it interests me altho i am not on it...
the highest efective dose of suboxone is 32 mgs any higher and only negative effects will come out. I was on 32mgs for 8 months and honeslty the best dose is between 16-24mgs a day taken throguhout the day, at wahtever times you feel you need it the most. you are on a high dose, but it is effective and as long as you stick with the plan you and youre doctor create then you will be fine. and getting off should be a slow process slowly tapering down week by week.
That was sure a high dose to jump off of and I really think you need to speak with a doctor. I was on Suboxone very short-term and most I know who came off of it tapered first. I understand your anxiety but please be careful and get to the ER if anything serious begins to happen. Please post and let us know how you are.
after I posted yesterday... my husband and I spent hours, and I mean hours, reading information on Suboxone. We discussed what we'd read and came up, together, with a plan for my detoxing. After all he read, my husband admitted to me that he was concerned that I perhaps was not being totally honest about my taking the pain meds with him. He said he'd feel better if he was in control of my meds and was able to dispense them to me daily. For me, that wasn't any big deal.
Here is some great info on Suboxone. I copied and pasted some but please read the whole article at the link below it. Oh...and welcome to the forum :) "Due to the fact that Sub has only been available for a couple of years in the United States there are a lot of questions that arise. Doctors are very misinformed about proper dosages, discontinuation of use, the existence of withdrawal symptoms, and length of withdrawal.
for them before the opiates, but they told me i was taking way too many and that it could and would damage my kidneys and liver, etc. so they wanted to put me on the percs.
I have never been this scared before. I know my kidneys are damaged and there may still be blood clots. I am watching the heart monitor as it takes readings every few minutes and it just makes me angry. I am not gonna let this crap beat me. No matter what the tests show I am going to keep fighting this. This is the closest I have came to death and it has given me a serious wake-up call. If I continue this crazy path I am going to die and that is just unacceptable.
Even children under the age of 5 have been known to consume unattended Suboxone and only suffer from nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, along with some crankiness due to the stomach discomfort. I hope this information helps! Dr. Oswald, Ph. D and Licensed Addiction Medicine Admin. and Treatment Specialist.
Hi all, Day 15 off a 3-4 year suboxone journey. I think I'm thru the bad wd's but still extremely weak n sluggish. I've been following Thomas recipe n taking plenty of epsom salt baths, vitamins, amino acids, etc. I have polycystic kidney disease...pkd...and have been experiencing some bad lower back pain. (Back pain is what got me on pain meds...then to suboxone in begining).
I felt a big snake biting me and it took one day to feel that pain and afterwards I knew I can do this and get off Suboxone. I was on Suboxone 2mgs for 6 months and tried to taper down... Can anyone tell me how long Suboxone withdrawals last???? im so anxious to know because I really can't wait to feel back to normal. Thank you and God Bless all of you.
I had a liver function done before I started Suboxone and then again when I was half way finished with it. Suboxone is very hard on your liver.

My kidneys are starting to slow down, as a methadone patient of 17 years and now on suboxone the doctors from the methadone clinic are not relating this to the methadone, however, what they are saying is that they would expect this of patients who have been using narcotics for years ! What is the difference??? Sounds extremely contradictory, what is methadone ??? How many other individuals are having the sme problem as this.
I do know that being cirrhotic may bring on nausea, loss of appetite and other symptoms. When you add that to not having energy and feeling run down it could feel a bit ugly and may even resemble withdrawl in some ways. If you've already tried a dose increase and you didn't notice an increase in more energy then it could be that you will get everything back after treatment. Are you going thru a clinical trial or are you going thru the SOC treatment.?
dilaudid, morphine, methadone, suboxone, oxycodone (up to 30mg/pill), and finally my weakness Tramadol. I have taken up to 12 pills a day which, depending on various medical journals exceeds the max daily dose by 4 pills due to risk of seizures, which I have had due to Tramadol use. What scares me the most is that if I ever come across "h", I am most likely to try it.
My friend had thought that taking that little suboxone was virtually inexistent, so i was congratulated, clean, and done. Though i had the same daily aches, it was minimal. Morning head aches were easing. life was GREAT. Some time later, BAM, full w/d again. So the suboxones f***ed me. Now i gotta do this one more time. The pain today is pretty low. Though i slept terribly. Guess it's good its the weekend. I'd say today feels like day 6 from last time.
The narcotic are damaging to the liver, kidneys ect. Not to mention addicting. The Suboxone takes the edge off but the pain is unbearable and they put me on the Lyrica too and I did not want to give it a chance I had them increase the dose to 200 mg per day and gave it a few months and it actually helped a little. I have Peripherial Neuropathy an basically that is shootying and sharp pain along w/ nubness in muy right leg and it is not fun!! i had WMGS done and i also have carpal tunnel.
i would be more concerned about your liver and kidneys with all the tylenol in vikes... there are people here whose addiction was worse than yours...its a progression of the disease, it will and can get worse no matter how much your taking, it will always get worse.
Its so nice to hear from you. The asthma's finally under control. I'm off the suboxone and the doc caring for me is a new one. Knows all about me, there will be no getting over off him, which is a good feeling.So wheres hope? Hummmmm? and how are you doing?
hello will best thing i can think of is to lower your dose little by little until you are off of it completely
The best I've ever hoped for is maintaining pain until being deceased. My doctor recently took it upon himself to move me to Suboxone and tapper me off pain medication completely. I, of course, was severely angry and depressed by this to the point of suicidal contemplation to escape the fate that's staring down at me from the barrel of the ugliest shotgun I've ever seen.
I'm a liver transplant patient and SVR. I wrecked my motorcycle and was on oxycontin and oxycodone for 4 months and if the transplant team didn't object to it I figure it can't be that hazardous to the liver. Of course, 5 years is quite a long time and I have no idea about proplonged use.
But, I'm also taking like way too many advil's too, when I don't have medicine, and it doesn't work either, and all I'm doing is killing my liver and kidneys. Don't know what to do next. I understand the meltdown with your child, have had one of those this week too, it makes it much more difficult. You just want something to help you cope, and when it's gone, it's much more difficult. Sorry, I tried to help you and probably brought you back down too. I'm happy you are doing so well.

Naltrexone is an opioid receptor antagonist used primarily in the management of alcohol dependence and opioid dependence. Shoot forget this for me anyway I'm already on suboxone........enough opiod receptor antagonists for me.
