Suboxone classification

Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone classification


Avatar_n_tn I think the tenuous FDA approval of subutex/suboxone and methadone (for pregnancy) explains the confusion about it's legitimate use for pregnant women. As far as I am aware, both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>/subutex carry a Class C <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>classification</span> for use during pregnancy. A Class C rating is described by the FDA as follows....
Avatar_m_tn This serves as a deterrent so the abuser will not relapse as it will cause great physical discomfort if opiates are consumed while on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>. Therefore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> is a great detox tool only. After detox, an addict can continue taking just the non-narcotic Naloxone similar in properties to antibuse for alcoholics after withdrawals are over. Naloxone can be taken long-term without any harm to the body and can also be used alone to overcome opiate addiction without taking the suboxone step.
Avatar_m_tn When I got my appointment with my addiction psychologist, I kindof went wild. I knew that this was it and that I was going to go on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> and no more pain pills, so I did take more.......just as a "going away party". I never had enough willpower to taper. That is why I went on the Subs. Quitting doesn't have to be scarey if you do all of your research, decide what is best for you and then stay with the plan.
Avatar_f_tn the problem is to find a doctor that really understands <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>......please read about it on my doctor's website. He has an article on there about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>. Just don't stay on the really is harder to get off of than any opiate. I made that mistake. Just so you know I was on Opana ER for 6 1/2 years around the clock, and had to do a taper off a benzo during this last year too. I had pretty bad pain, that is actually so much better. Please PM me if you want to talk.
Avatar_f_tn The trip was at the beginning of August, so it really hasn't been long since I had my last few days without anything (I know I still had some residual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> in me probably)...but the other day I was running out and at the 18 hour mark...felt like ****. I need to get off these once and for all. The last 5 days have been super low for me, only about 3-6 10mg norcos per day...but when I have my usual play money and pills...I can easily go through 20-30 day if I have unlimited access.
Avatar_n_tn It is actually more dangerous, but doctors prescribe it without reservation due to it's non-narcotic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>classification</span>. Sure, Ultram is safe for those who are not addicts. But then, so are morphine, dilaudid, vicodin, and oxycontin!
1357134_tn?1277307867 I was going to go to a clinic with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> detox but I've heard about people getting addicted to that. Sounds like just trading one pill for another. I just want my life back.. for me.. for my son.. for my family and friends. There is so much out there waiting for me! I have been living in this shell for far too long! Best wishes to you and I hope you have a peaceful day..
Avatar_n_tn Chronic Pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>classification</span> Acute pain is distinguished as being of recent onset, transient, and usually from an identifiable cause. Chronic pain can be described as persistent or recurrent pain, lasting beyond the usual course of acute illness or injury or more than 3 to 6 months, and which adversely affects the individual’s well-being. A simpler definition for chronic pain is pain that continues when it should not.
Avatar_n_tn These will help with sleep, RLS and anxiety. These are best to try before formal detox and drugs like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>. I had to do formal detox because I tried everything else, including alcohol to get off and nothing worked for me. Keep in mind that when you try… make it a good one! Have some time off of work if you can… maybe a four day weekend or more. Make the last day of work without any drugs, because the first day is usually the easiest.
Avatar_m_tn the only reason that medicine wants to have addiction not classified as a disease is because then insurance companies get to stop paying for recovery, remember, the people here who were addicted to heroin didn't choose to pick up methadone, their doctor did, then when the methadone was a problem, the give <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span>. it can't be cured...only treated. we just need the medial community to see that it is a continus(sp) recovery. again, sorry, it's just a moody morning.
Avatar_n_tn Here I am again, post CA rehab, back in NYC. I've been off tramadol for about 6 weeks. It was a piece of cake with all the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</span> they put me on... Now I'm back in NYC, off the suboxone, and all I can think about is tramadol again. What is the deal? I guess when your rehab is all about replacement opiates, you are never really off the opiates.
Avatar_n_tn There must be a fairly big difference since the Hydros are (I believe) a schedule III and the Oxys are a schedule II pharmacy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>classification</span>. It's great that your tolerance level is low, but I've heard that it goes up EXTREMELY QUICKLY again. I'd be ever so careful (like you are) about taking very much, since you've got more surgery coming.
