Look up the term PAWS - Post Acute-Withdrawal Syndrome, and see what awaits you after using an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> for more than a few weeks.
Avatar_f_tn I do want to caution you that <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> in also an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span>. Before I address that though, I wanted to also address the damage you are doing to your liver because of the amount of acetaminophen you ingest by taking both percocets and Coricidin. Just Something to think about. Now let me tel you about an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean>. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> the brand name for a medication consan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ting of buprenorphine and naloxone.
Avatar_n_tn I do want to caution you and him that <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> in also an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span>. Let me tell you about it. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> the brand name for a medication consan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ting of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a thebaine derivative with powerful analgesia approximately 20-40x more potent than morphine.
Avatar_f_tn <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> extremely addictive. People find it just as difficult to taper and quit. One of the patients in our clinic, who we had to detox from an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean>, was so addicted, that no matter how far down she titrated than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> drug she could not get off. At one point she was literally just licking the 1 mg strip, but she could not give it up. I find that most have the same problem with both of these drugs.
Avatar_n_tn Now I did forget to mention, if you take a percocet, and then take a an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> to soon after, you will go into immediate w/d's, because the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> actually fights the other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> in your system, and knocks it off of your receptors, but then the subxone does not attatch itself to the receptors either, and it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> what they call precipiated withdrawl's. You can read about that on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean>'s site style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean>.
Avatar_m_tn i have already dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>tanced myself from the persons i can get them so now i am trying to ween down and then use <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> to quit. i am lucky to have never been arrested or losing my money or job. in fact the bad part an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> i seem to make more money when im high on pills. my sex drive an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> nonexan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>tent and i am totally controlled by than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> drug. i did 5 yesterday which for me an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a step in the right direction, have 3 left for today and plan on taking a 8mg subox in the am and see what happens.
Avatar_f_tn on it, and overdose an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> pretty much impossible because it had Narcon in it. (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span>) and in order for the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> to work, your ganna need to wait about a good day into withdrawls from the oc, or it will not do anything, because beprenorphine an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a longer lasting opiate in the receptors of the brain.
Avatar_f_tn it will not kiil pain, it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> meant to get people off opiotes. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> has a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span> in it ... so if u do pain killers while your taking an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> the pain killers will be blocked out and you will not feel the pain killer i dont think your daughter should go on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> unless she wants to get off everything! sounds like she needs the pain killers!
480035_tn?1222369764 It makes sense that the Narcan an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> there to block a typical high from one's DOC. and I guess also from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> component in the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>. Just doesn't work that way for me, that's all. Makes it a little bit harder than it might be. Thanks again.
Avatar_n_tn and i have done an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> a about 4 hrs after doing a doner or an oxy and many other things <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span> but if the opiate an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> already in your system it obviously cant block it and it can make you sick
Avatar_n_tn They can be used to ease it but tapering off or cold turkey an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> the only way i believe, theres no just moving onto some other drug to help..Its just another <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span>.. I would say try <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> for a few days to get the tolerance down and taper more opiates, even though an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an opiate, it does have the blocker in it too so..Tell her to take it one day at a time and get off all pills in general ASAP!! GOODLUCK!!!

461368_tn?1206520357 If you stay on the methodone the pills won't do you any good if your wanting to feel that euphoric feeling. Methodone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span>. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> certainly your choice on how to detox,but speaking from experience methodone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>n't the best route to take. You should really look into an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> . The withdrawl from methodone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> horrible and long lasting.My advice to you an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> to talk to your doctor about the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean>.
Avatar_n_tn <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span>. it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> the opposite. it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> bupenephrine which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span>. methadone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> opiate based the 2 are not the same. if you want off break it down. dont quit ct. i would try to skip the night dose and see how you feel in the morning.

I am not trying to tell you exactly what to do but than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> what I would do...
Avatar_m_tn I came off 80mgs of methadone, tapered down to 10mg then used <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> for 4 days before jumping off. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a partial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> so it helps with the withdrawals at first, but then you are still faced with coming off the subs.I was on them for just a few days (also tapered my dose by 1/4 each day) so I didn't really get a major habit on them. I feel I just delayed the withdrawals. The tapering made it a bit easier than jumping off at 80mgs but it was still no walk in the park.
1845558_tn?1318954203 Now, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> as you are telling me an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not for your pain, since it does not help it. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> however still an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span>, whether you like it or not. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> the brand name for a medication consan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ting of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a thebaine derivative with powerful analgesia approximately 20-40x more potent than morphine.
Avatar_m_tn an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> contains nanoxalone, (narcon) an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span> which will throw your body into instant wd. You must be in at least 24hr wd to start an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean>. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> only then that it will take away your wd symptoms, at such a high dose, you may require 16mg of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> for your first 2-3 days. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> contains an extremely powerful opioid called Subutec, and it not intended to go back and forth.
5417109_tn?1367641699 You shouldn't have any problem transitioning if your dose an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> the same. Subutex an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> just the buprenorphine, which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span>, <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> buprenorphine plus the nalaxone, which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> the opiate blocker. There are NO other differences. To be honest, the reason Sub blocks other opiates has MUCH more to do with the way Sub fills the opiate receptors, not the naloxone.
Avatar_m_tn By the time you start to feel crappy, you'll be able to take the oxy. Sub an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span>, and taking another opiate while sub an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> still in your system will put you into wds, but if you wait the 36 hours after your last sub dose, you should be fine. Not to sound stupid - but are you sure there's no other way to handle the pain? You're playing russian roulette by going back on the pain meds, and most likely you'll end up right back where you started.
Avatar_m_tn You can get hooked on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean>/Subutex because it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> itself. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>n't a rough wd, I've done it from <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> once, and it was like 2-4 weeks of man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ery but not rapid or severe like heroin. ALSO: To the original poster: If you are taking opiates because you can't get pot/weed, then I suggest relocating to a state where medical marijuana an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> LEGAL. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> legal where I live (CALIFORNIA) and I have a script.
Avatar_n_tn You could always post a new question if you'd like. You will not get sick if you take a methadone. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span> so you likely won't feel any of the effects of the methadone, but it will not make you sick. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> has a long half life, about 36-72 hours, so you may not feel the full effects of the methadone until a couple days after your sub dose. You didn't mention why you were going from sub to methadone?
1181063_tn?1264714890 Subutex an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> pure buprenorphine (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span>). <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> buprenorphine (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span>) PLUS naloxone (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span>). Its a mix of both. They use the naloxone to deter people from abusing buprenorphine. Hope than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> helps.
Avatar_f_tn It contains both a potent synthetic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> (narcotic) and partial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span>. It's intended use an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> to prevent withdrawal symptoms in anyone who an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> dependent on narcotics, be it from a necessary therapeutic use for pain, or addiction and abuse. Because of the partial opiate blocker, it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a bad medication for chronic pain patients (in my opinion anyway). If you have a pain cran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> and need more meds, they won't work and you may even go into withdrawal.
Avatar_n_tn <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> has an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> antagonan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>t in it, so you will not get any effect or benefit from taking the ultram.. I know Ultram an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not an opiate but it does block the same opiate receptors in the brain as a real opiate would so if you take the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> then it will have already blocked the recptors in the brain so it will just kick the ultram out..
Avatar_m_tn i am allergic to naloxone (the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span> in <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>). i dont wanna get on methadone cuz the addiction gets serious. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> there any thing like an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> with the naloxone in it?
Avatar_f_tn Hey again, thank you both for your input. I completely agree with what you say about going on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> for a yr or so/ or using an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> or methadone as a last resort. I've actually attempted both those options...7yrs ago I tried remaining abstinent from all medications but wasn't successful. Methadone was helpful for a yr or so but I was drinking and abusing Xanax too.
Avatar_n_tn You could physically take the T3 - it won't make you sick. But sub an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span> so the T3's pain relieving effects would be low, if not nonexan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>tant. If you do take them, you'd have to push back your sub dose cuz taking the sub while the T3 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> still circulating in your system would make you sick. Why do you want to take painkillers while on the sub? If you have pain maybe you should talk to your doctor.
445698_tn?1208622107 Hey there everyone, I just had a question about the drugs <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> and Methadone. My question an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> which one has the mose opiate like affects ( gets you high like other opiates)? My doctor an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> putting me on one or the other next week, and I want to be on one that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> gonna work, but I also want the one thats not going to get me high like heroin or Morphine does. any info on the comparan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>on of these drugs would be helpful...
Avatar_f_tn As far as I know <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxone</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> has an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>opiate</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blocker</span> - folks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> that right? That's what I remember from when my hubby was in detox. I'm thinking that's right - and if so - that would mean that the opiates in vicodin would not be able to have their affect because of the blocker. So you'd be wasting your money and your liver to be taking the V if that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> the case. Maybe look up info about an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> online and see if that's correct. If you're on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>suboxonean> its becuase you want out right?
