My sister is addicted to pain killers and has an appointment next <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> at <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> suboxone clinic to seek help but just found out that she is pregnant. What will happen? Is there anything like suboxones an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> her to take to help or are suboxones safe?
Is it possible an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> one to take suboxone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> just a few days to get "through the withdraws" from hydrocodone abuse, like 300mg a day use.? any one have any ideas. I was thinking of talking about 1 8 mg sub in the morning first day(after 24 hours of with drawl) and 4 mg in the morning and 4 at nigh an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the next day then 4 mg in the morning and 2 mg at night then then just stopping all together? so a total of 3 days of suboxone to get through the worst of the withdrawals.
Now I take suboxone 5 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> and 2 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> I'll go through 50 percf 10mgs. My question is IF I can stay on the Suboxone how long should I be on it bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>e I can wean myself off of the suboxone and be drug free ???
I have been off Suboxone <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> now. My Dr had had prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> withdrawal script but I am unable to take this due to a court ordered program. This Drug Court has said I MUST be clean from this and any other drugs by Nov. 2nd. I've signed my life away to do this so I MUST be clean. Questions: 1.How long will this stay in my system? I had tested positive after taking no Suboxone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> 3 days. The court said I should have been negative. They have given me 2 weeks to do this.
about five months ago I found <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> doctor that prescribed me suboxone <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> my withdrawls. I recently moved back to new york, and after i moved back to ny i find out my insurance did not cover my suboxone so i owe 400+ dollars. I cannot afan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>d to keep paying an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> it, and have had SO much trouble finding a doctor up here who can prescribe it but I have had no luck. I have been thinking about quiting suboxone and just toughing it out.
the suboxone is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> big help. How many suboxone do you have I could give you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> plan on how to ween yourself down each day.
Now I like the suboxone and have taking it <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> month, longer that I shot up. I take it about 3-4 times <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> about 12mg, really just recreational. Can I cold turkey stop it since its just been a month or should I tapper? I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onlyan> have 3/8mg strips left I could cut in 4ths. Or should I just stop? I read it is also a mental thing so am also concerned with that but don't want any wd from that. Not sure of I've been on it long enough to have wd but this recreational stuff is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the birds.
I have to say that suboxone is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> very strong medication to turn to <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> 3-4pill/day habit of hydro. I know how hard it is to quit and more importantly to stay clean, but maybe you should try to kick your current habit and see a doc an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> your depresson issues. after quitting opiates our brains take time to regain their ability to produce sufficient amounts of its own natural chemicals (norepenephrine/dopamine/serotonin), leading to feelings of depression/anxiety.
I finally went to an addiction psychologist who put me on suboxone.. I have been taking suboxone <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> year now. i know that my doc is leading me on to get his money every moneth. I was the one who sugested taking less of gthe sub. I want to be free of it but he never mentions taking less. I am glad that I have ahd him to help me but i also know he is stringing me along so ne gets nis hundred a month from me. What should I do?
I have managed to get down to 1/2 mg per day. How often should I continue to lower from here...once <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span>, twice <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span>...etc. My Dr. suggested that I go one day without taking it, but I get very agitated and sick to my stomach. I'm not real sure how much is physical and how much is psychological. What is your suggestion. Thank you!
but when she started on Sub it was actually 3 x <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> day, <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> the first (I think 5 days) and then 2 x <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> day <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> few days and then to one time a day. When your addiction is totally out of control they will have you dose a few times a day to keep you from relapsing it is a lot mental and as you know physical but the goal in a week is to get you to one tablet a day...... two fold to break the cycle of railing oxy on an hourly basis and physically to adjust your body.
Call your other doctor and get some Requip.

Restless leg syndrome is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> *****. This is what I had the hardest time with but it does get better. again, take hot baths. Try sleeping with hot patches or cold patches on your legs. This really worked an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> me. The cold worked better. In between my shoulder blades on my back really bothered me too and the cold patches worked there too. The Requip will help with all of this too. *5.
See if your doctor can write you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> prescription <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> some Requip <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> restlessness, Neurontin <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> a few weeks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> sleep and Klonopin which will be helpful an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> sleeplessness and anxiety. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.

I told them, heck i'd pay and be glad to get help. They are awesome people. From the Dr, to the counselor. They told me this study is going on nationwide. Good luck.

OMG -- 16 mg?? That is one huge dose of Sub. I was addicted to 140 mg/day of Oxycontin and started on Sub at 2 mg twice a day. Then I tapered from there but not fast enough to avoid some really horrid W/D's -- I was on Sub an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> 21 days. My opinion is that Sub should an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onlyan> be taken as needed to avoid the really really bad W/D's.
From reading about it on here I have heard the withdrawals are so much worse than other pain meds. Sub is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> very strong opiate. I have read that some recommend an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onlyan> using it <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> week or so and start tapering off of it around the 3rd day. Like I said, I personally don't know much about it. Someone will come along here shortly and help you out. Just be very careful with the sub as it is a replacement.
