Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone snort

suboxone

I just found out that my boyfriend is taking Suboxone. I knew he had a problem w pain killers in the past, and noticed his sneaky trips to the bathroom. Come to find out he is sniffing suboxone. He says he has been on it for 3 years and that it helps him stay clean. I have NO IDEA about pills and what the effects they have on you when you are addicted to them or what is even appealing about it. All I know is that I love him and I want to be here for him.
I have slowly tapered off of the suboxone, and can't seem to get lower than 1 mg without having withdrawals. I am wondering how long the withdrawals will go on if I just do it.
Is anyone on this forum besides me that is on suboxone for opiod withdrawls???
I am currently on my fourth week with suboxone. I am taking two 8mgs twice daily. Suboxone is the closest thing to miracle for opiate addictions. For the past two years I have been taking oxy's and Heroin everyday. The withdrawals were terrible, after several attempts at trying to use methods to quit at home Ive given up. I have used up every medical clinic and urgent care in southern Wisconsin, i decided to let the parents know and go for treatment.
What is the normal dose that most people start out on suboxone on? How does it help with the withdrawls, etc?
Glad to see somebody else who has been successfull with suboxone. I've been addicted to Oxy's for about 4 years now and towards the end I was needing to snort atleast 8 80mg pills per day and sometimes was doing 10-11 per day. Foolishly I did this to myself and was never prescribed this medication from a doctor. But anyway I have been tapered down to two 80mg pills per day, and am scheduled to start suboxone in two weeks. I was wondering how the transition from oxy's to sub went for you?
If its ocs that he is snorting, once he becomes opiate tolerant, he will begin to crush more of them and snort more at one time....I don't what he is snorting now, but he has to STOP....There is not only the danger of the bleeding you mention, septm problems, other Brain issues, more, and more, but there is the danger of someday, crushing too many oxys at one time and simply the potential to DIE.
I think my grandson and his wife are abusing suboxone. Do people snort it? I have heard that some people do snort it like they do cocaine. I was told they were.
i know alot of people who crush and snort suboxone to get a high from it is this harmful to your health?
Why are people getting addicted on Suboxone when it doesn't even get you high? If I understand correctly, taking opiates while on suboxone has no effect. I know a young man in his 20's who is addicted to snorting Suboxone and I don't understand why? Any insight from the group would be invaluable!
im only 19 nd ive been doin opiets for about a year but i started suboxone about 5 months ago and one night i thought i had growing pains like i used to get when i was a little younger but when a friend of mine who has been doing them too called me and said the same thing to me about the pain i realized it was withdraw, i used to snort about half a pill a day with my friends and now i knocked myself down to just breaking off a peice of the corner and placing it under my tounge and waiting to see
iF YOU ARE TRYING TO GET OFF THE DRUGS, WHY WOULD YOU TRY TO GET HIGH OFF SUBOXONE?
Is suboxone like glue for your brain? by bolpak, I was told by my doctor that suboxone is like a glue that adheres to the receptors in your brain that receive the opiate molecule.. What other receptors does suboxone adhere to? What does that mean in the long term? I dont feel the feelings of love, friendship and other feelings the same way as I did befor...
So the difference between Suboxone and Subutex .Suboxone contains a second medication – naloxone – that is added to the formulation to keep people from abusing the medication. Coming from a person who uses the needle I can say from experience that it does NOT send you into WD's if shot up. It will however send you into WD's if you shoot up shortly after doing an opiate. I am by no means telling you to try shooting up just letting you know that it doesn't cause WD's when shot.
Recently I have had folks addicted to suboxone ask me for help. I visited some recovery facilities in Texas and Oklahoma and found lots of confusion and conflict. Detox facilities said that they were using the durg for opiate addiction detox. "Licensed" doctors said that they required a "contract" with the paitient to control the use of the drug. One doctor said he will no longer prescribe suboxone due to paiient abuse.
He started snorting it then graduated to injecting last March. He was prescribed Suboxone in January and continues to relapse. He has had inpatient detox x 3 and rehab , counseling, he goes to HA, NA and AA. I have been to Al Anon. I usually dispense his medication and observe him until it has dissolved under his tongue, but occasionally I trust him to take it on his own, only giving him his second dose to take later when I am not able to watch him.
around 2-3 months of him doing Opana's- he came clean with me and said he didn't want to do them and didn't think he would be addicted. He began taking subutex. He would snort and i just found out last night that he had injected it as well :/ As far as I know, he was on that for about 2 months and then switched to Suboxone. Which he sniffed as well. then he began getting the strips and i started to feel less un-attracted to him.
so..im on the suboxone..and it seems like all it does is put my withdrawls on pause..and once i come off it i feel like ****..what is everyones take on this?
I am 9 months pregnant and have been on suboxone for almost a year now. I have has tests done and a number of ultrasounds and the doctors say the baby is great. But I am really concerned about whether I should withdrawal before I have the baby or just have the baby. I have been doing some research on suboxone and infant withdrawal and so far have found that infants do not go through any withdrawal sysptoms. But it's not good enough for me.
Hi Jdawne ----- I recommend you go to the Health Pages (upper right of your screen) and find the post titled 'Members Experiences Coming off of Suboxone" - It may help you as you decide how much Sub you really need and how fast you want to come off of it --- -I can tell you that 12 mg is a very large amount. I shudder to think of anyone using Sub to break an addiction to Vicodin ---- As I have said many times, that is like using an atomic bomb when a hand grenade is all you need.
What is Suboxone/Subutex? Suboxone®, manufactured by Reckitt Benckiser, is the first opioid substitution treatment available without the hassle involved with going to a methadone clinic everyday or even weekly. The two active ingredients in Suboxone® are buprenorphine hydrochloride, and naloxone hydrochloride dihydrate. Subutex® has only buprenorphine as an active ingredient.
I took my first dose of Suboxone today. I have taken 2 doses so far of 8mg. It has been great, no withdrawls, I feel fine except really tired. WIll this go away? Also, I have been reading how addictive it is so now I am concerned I just switched from one problem to another. I started taking pain pills in 2002 for chronic low back pain. For 6 years I took my meds exactly as prescribed but when it got to the time I needed a change or a dose increase my Dr wouldn't change anything.
For any casual readers, the FDA only approved Suboxone for a short-term, 21-day detox from opiates. Long-term consequences from using Suboxone/ Subutex as a maintenance drug have not yet been formally studied, but plenty of people on this forum can testify to the adverse effects. Generally speaking, the longer you're on it, the longer and more horrific your detox experience will be. Sub is not a magic pill that will get you through detoxing from your drug of choice pain-free.
Good morning, this question is from a fellow who posted below, can tx be successful when on suboxone? Nygirl ,I read where your on this drug and without a doubt your tx so far is working great. His handle is pauly boy.
holy crap! wds from suboxone? im going to c doc tomorroww to get on from vicodin addiction. so its one addiction to the other?
And then if you are unsuccessful call a doctor for Suboxone. Suboxone is also an opiate so it also must be tapered and some people do have withdrawals with it. You may be able to just do this once by getting of the oxy by tapering, instead of starting another drug that you have to taper to get off of.. You see what I am saying?
I was on suboxone for 4 years (about 8mg per day at first and tapered down to 1mg). Here comes the tricky part...under the supervision of my addiction specialist, I switched to oxycodone and think it will be easier to come off that that the dredded subox. Subox is 30 times mg per mg more powerful than oxycodone. And with its half life, it is like taking 30 mgs of percocet but never coming off of it for 24 to 36 hrs. That is a lot of percocet to fill those shoes.
The naloxone component of SUBOXONE is there to deter people from crushing the medication to snort or inject it. When SUBOXONE is used incorrectly in this manner, the naloxone component can cause withdrawal symptoms to rapidly occur. Length of treatment The length of therapy depends on your needs, and is up to you, your doctor, and your counselor. Some patients stay on SUBOXONE for as little as a few weeks; others continue taking it for months or years.
4) And if I only take them for a week, will I still get withdrawl symptoms from the methadone or the suboxone? Thank you so much!
(Buprenorphine alone) Suboxone combines buprenophine with naloxone (the naloxone is mainly present to deter people from trying to shoot/snort the drug. If you shoot Suboxone you go into severe withdrawal...why...because you just combined an opoid(buprenophine) with an activated opiod antagonist. (ie Naloxone/Narcan...it is what they use to bring people back from overdoses, it rips every opiate off every receptor...you live, but you withdrawal.
