Taking suboxone and klonopin

Common Questions and Answers about Taking suboxone and klonopin

suboxone

Actually, klonopin is considered to be weaker than ativan...again..it depends on how much you were taking and for how long....
Just wondering, what are the effects of Suboxone, Seroquel and Klonopin? He is on 12 mg of suboxone daily, and is prescribed 2 mg of Klonopin but he is abusing that already and taking about 20 mg of the klonopin. I am not overly worried, just because he was taking about 350 mg of valium a day before going on the sub a month ago, but of course there is some concern. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Is anyone taking Suboxone treatment for substance abuse? If so what's your take on using Sub as a treatment?
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep and Klonopin which will be helpful for 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.
7 weeks ago he went on Suboxone and started to take about 4 mg of klonopin and 50 mg of valium along with 50 mg of seroquel. 5 weeks ago, the doctor started weaning him off the klonopin and changed him from seroquel to trazodone. ( the valium was never prescribed..he just took that on his own ). On his own, he decided to increase his klonopin dosage and add seroquel back to his regimen.
Where to begin? I need to get off of both quick, which one should I get off of first? I"m on 10mg Suboxone/day and have tapered Klonopin to 1.25mg/day down from 2 mg/day. I know the risk with fast benzo taper/cold turkey. I am trying to reduce both at same time and my body is screaming in every way possible. Stomach cramps, diarrhea, blurred vision, muscle cramps, INSOMNIA, hip/joint pain, nausea, vomiting. OH MAN. Any words of encouragement appreciated.
Btw when I said I was taking Suboxone for months I specifically meant like 2 months maybe a little more and I wasn't even taking the Suboxone everyday sometimes every other day and stuff but because of the half life I guess it didn't matter that I skipped days without taking Suboxone.
It's been 41 hours since I've taken any Klonopin and 2 + weeks since I've taken any Suboxone and I got about 4 hours of sleep last night/this morning so I guess the acute withdrawal is gone and I probably just have to deal with the PAWS and staying clean which I'm determined to do.I just feel like it's time to stop with everything from drinking to Suboxone.
It was suggested that taking klonopin can help with withdrawing from xanax, ( XANAX WITHDRAWL IS EXCRUCIATING AND DANGEROUS) EXPEIENCED IT AND WAS ADVISED ABOUT IT BY DOCTORS Is weaning off of klonopin is less dangerous and less painful? Is this a valid medical treatment? I have no idea what to expect from my 15 day stay at peachford in Atlanta GA.
I'm wondering what the effects would be (if harmful) if one is taking Methadone and Klonopin at the same time? Please answer soon. Thank you for your time.
Hey Guys, Do any of you know the difference in these benzos, like which one is supposed to do what and what is stronger and less strong, etc? I've taken Ativan for anxiety as needed, and my doc mentioned switching to klonopin or xanax since the ativan doesnt work that great anymore...can anyone help?
Hey, I did the suboxone and it worked great for me..I was at 40 to 50 Norcos a day and I detox with suboxone in 4 months with no pain..and the cost you mention sound about right (in florida that's the price) and no Insurance companys will not pay for it..They do not feel that it is safe for an out patient detox..and most policies only cover in treatment detox... But it is well worth the money...I could work every day and I ate well..Yes sleep was an issue at first but it evens it self out...
I am currently taking 16 mg of suboxone siblingual films. I have been taking them since 2006. I have severe anxiety so my doctor put me on .5 klodipins 2 tabs twice a day as needed. I feel great and sleep better than i ever remember. They say its unsafe but responds well with me. any harm in me taking the combined meds as need and not abusing them????
too much of both will severely depress your respiratory system and if you visit suboxone's website, there is documented instances of COMA AND DEATH associated with taking suboxone and benzodiazepenes. After saying all that, I take my 10mg a day of box and every now and then streetbuy a clonapin 1mg pill, or maybe 2. your eyes will get very droopy, your vision will blur, and you'll want a pillow and a blanket. all of which is fine, outstanding even.
Also, the suboxone doesn't seem to be taking away his withdrawls, he is antsy, has rls, hot and cold, sneezing, nauseaus, very very sick. He has been taking 24-32mg of suboxone and I thought that was a really high dose. He was on about 900mg of oxycodone a day, so maybe that has something to do with it? Anyone please help! Thank you so much in advance!
I'm on day 5 of suboxone withdrawal been taking kratom and only a klonopin when needed but will this ever end I'm scared
watch doubling ur klonopin dose while taking the subonoxe. Benzos and suboxone milk like coke and luke warm water.
I am taking only 4 mg of suboxone and sometimes 6mg each day. I want off of these medications and don't know how to go about it. I'm in therapy once a week but its with other people and I find it very shallow and trivial. Only 10% of the time is dedicated to the solution. Despite a very professional therapist in the room the patients just rant about their daily crap. Not their plan on getting off of the medications, because frankly, they don't have one.
r 3 times in 1 week from panic attacks,and being sick, the suboxone raised my blood pressure (a lot). so i stopped taking it, it has been 35 hours since i took my last pill. my question is can i take my koloinpin? after 35 hours of not taking the suboxone, the drug stores wont answer me, my doc, wont call me back, and i know i couldnt take them together, i just dont know if the suboxone is out of my system. i am having really bad panic attacks. i have no energy, and now im just venting...lol..
5 in the pm when I went to a dr for pill addiction he took me off that and put me on the suboxone and gave me trazadone to help with sleep.
well doctors usually prescribe a higher dose for the first week or so to get you past the time that you would be in withdrawal from the pain med if you werent taking the suboxone and then cut it back that kinda sounds weird but do ya get what i am sayin Good Luck and Godspeed ABritt
I think sub is a wonderful tool for some to use, I tend to think short term use is the way to go, my doctor full intended on me being on it for years, if I hadnt found this place and tapered down and off myself I would still be taking it. The reason doctors dont like to prescribe a benzo with methadone is that over 90% of methadone overdoses are due to the mixing with xanax mainly, but also other benzo's like valium and klonopin.
I don't want to take 1000mg of Advil/Tylenol or whatever and certainly don't want to get Rxed and opiates seeing how I'm trying to get off suboxone. So my question is is the sub thatis giving me these headaches? I've gotten them before the bike wreck but they weren't this sever.
he already is perscribed clonopan and ambien 2 drugs that could seriously be harmfull if taken with suboxone and when i brought that issue up he said he stopped taking them. I dont know whats going to happen if he has a panic attack or he goes on other drugs again and the psychologist there doesnt seem to care about what happens when he gets out of rehab but we have a month old som and i dont want him to have a father thats either dead or an addict. I love him and want to be with him.
klonopin is a slow acting benzo...and can help if used short term for withdrawal...good luck to u...it will help with anxiety and sleep issues...
he is weaning me off my klonipin before he put me on the sub but right now Im on mantience methadone 150 mg a day and adderall and klonopin and im ok
you may be better off with a short acting benzo, like Ativan or Xanax instead of the Klonopin. The Klonopin basically has a longer half life and is more useful as a "maintenence" drug for anxiety issues, whereas the shorter acting benzos give you quicker relief, but then are out of your system much faster. You would benefit from not having to wait until the Klonopin gets to a therapeutic level in your system. As for Sub...that is a very controversial topic.
