Buprenorphine dosage for dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Buprenorphine dosage for dogs


Avatar f tn I've read on holistic info sites that BUPRENORPHINE is the best and SAFEST pain med for cats....I know thats the one my Vet uses too. Is this for long term use?
Avatar f tn Yes, I'm currently living in Brazil - born in Brazil as well. But I grew up abroad in Canada (Vancouver) and Germany until my 20's. This medicine comes in pill form, it's not only for veterinary use (it can be purchased in regular pharmacies) but also used for humans. So, I'm trusting the Vets - and from experience with my other cats, it is a safe pain/fever med. Here it's called "Dipirona sódica".
Avatar n tn can you suggest the quickest, most painless way for me to detox from Tussionex? I've been taking it for 3 years now; my dosage is 60 to 90 ml per day, making my total daily sustained-release hydrocodone consumption from 120 to 180 mg. Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I'm currently putting together a site that deals specifically with Buprenorphine [Suboxone] use for Detox, Maintenance, and also Buprenex as a pain med for those who cannot (or CHOOSE not to) take Morphine or Oxycontin.
Avatar n tn I will pick Band of Brothers tomorrow, veg out and force myself to take the dogs for a walk, maybe do a light work out with stretching. It is so easy to get into the poor me pity party. Hell,I have a decent gym in my garage and haven't workrd out since I started using. This getting old sucks, but it is time for me to be honest with myself and no longer use legitamite injuries as an excusr to use.
Avatar n tn It is a breed that looks like a sheep dog with a tail. That dog brightens our day. He is 13 weeks old. I can see why they use dogs in therapy for old folks homes and other important places. Okay Neena, NOW what are you going to do with you time off? How about finding a YOGA class somewhere? What about a stress Counselor? How about Tai Chi? Go Get a massage or a pedicure. Better yet just go get a whole damn day of spa treatments! Pamper yourself and just see if you start to feel better.
Avatar n tn I know that from past experiences and past withdrawals I cannot look back and remember the failure, I just want to progress, not regress. I have a small supply of buprenorphine, and consider it to be a miracle for myself. But I need to remember that it's also a member of the opiate family, and I suffer withdrawals from it as well. Especially since I'm NOT monitored under a doctor's care with this med.
Avatar n tn But sometimes I see the suffering here and I want to cry out... We really do help each other here..I forget for a moment about my own demons when I see yours.. thank you for that..
429155 tn?1205676864 Oxycontin.- While awaiting the scan results I was given oxycontin for pain relief, this seemed to do the trick for 2 weeks, 10mg 2x a day, then things hurt again so up the dose went 20mg 2x a day, then 40mg 2x a day, then 80mg 2x a day and up to 120mg 2x a day, recognise the scenereo anyone??..
Avatar f tn 00 ish and he is still doing fine. I am waiting for it to wear off. I am thinking this low dose will wear off sometime tonight .... any ideas? brief history: He was normally taking 3 80mgs of oxy every other day or every day. Monday was 2 80mgs Tuesday was 2 30mgs and today just 2 mgs of subox.
544292 tn?1268886268 I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
Avatar n tn Oh well, he will deal with it his way and on his terms....For me, what I don't know will NOT HURT ME!!!!!!!!!!!! PS.
538697 tn?1218415082 I know doctors get carried away with this medicine but there are some good doctors out there and you are very wrong about your dosage. I imagine at 6mg a day you are feeling good. I will look for the conversion site and let us know how many lortab 10's you were taking and we can hopefully help you with this.
Avatar n tn I have suffered from serious back pain caused by spinal stenosis for about 8 years. for the last 2 years, i have been taking percocet in the strength of 5/325. I usually take 4-5 over the course of a 20 hour day. my Dr. writes me a rx for 120 every month. I am at the point where i want to stop relying on painkillers, and the anxiety that comes with " what do i do if i run out early?"....
Avatar f tn I had been so proud of myself for taking my prescribed dosage, and while I'm not taking handfulls, I am taking more than alotted which means withdrawal until my next refill unless I take UNDER the amount for the next five days. You know what I mean. In addition, because I am all stressed out over the impending doom, I am downing my xanax, which is even scarier, because I am prone to anxiety attacks. Why can't I slow down? Because I am an addict. Duh!!!
Avatar n tn I just got back from the clinic for my third buprenorphine dosage to get me to day 4. I drilled the nurse a little more regarding this program. She assures me that on day 6, I will feel like day 6 of cold turkey withdrawal, that I won't have additional bup withdrawal on top of that and that the bup doesn't postpone the opiate withdrawal only to come crashing down on me once the bup is out of my system.
Avatar n tn It was very, very hard. Sheer hell for 4 days then I felt better, just had lethargy for a few more weeks. From what I have heard, you feel withdrawal symptoms for longer when coming off oxy. I don't know why that is, especially if the oxy's are crushed and no longer time released. Does anyone know anything about why that is? Anyway, welcome, and feel free to join in the clean challenge some folks are doing together. There is power in numbers!
Avatar n tn Please respond to ***@**** I have been addicted (or at least I think I am) to oxy for over a year now. Two cancer surgeries and two knee surgeries can leave some serious pain) but no excuses. I am a fully, well almost fully functionaing addict. No one knows of my delema. I start my day by chewing a 40 and taking 4 percocette. Yesterday I started logging the amount I took. 6..40's, 16 percocettes and 9 ir's and never felt a huge buzz and run a huge professional organization.
Avatar n tn However, I do have a link to the FDA's webpage for buprenorphine (subutex / suboxone). If you are interested in a maintenance program using this medication, I would link up with the web page and print ALL of the information and give it to your doctor. The page has everything from the chemical makeup of the drug to information for the prescribing doctor / pharmacy etc. A ton of info! This is the link: http://www.fda.gov/cder/drug/infopage/subutex_suboxone/default.htm.
Avatar n tn Sorry to interrupt the new thread but I just have a quick question that I'm hoping someone might be able to help me answer? I have been addicted to hydrocodone 5/500 for about the past 1 1/2 years. I was taking anywhere from 6-14 pills per day. I am now taking a longer acting morphine pill two times a day, prescribed by my doctor. Since I went off the hydro/apap 6 days ago I have been SICK!
Avatar n tn I have been watching the interaction here for awhile. I think ya'll are great. I need help getting off methadone. I also want to know what to expect. How long will the depression last? When do you start feeling better? I know this is different for everyone, but I need some guide lines. I got down to 10 mgs last week and felt really depressed, so I went back up. I started using pain meds for a legetimate reason. I had severe nerve damage in feet. Had several surgeries. Then it became a bad habit.
Avatar m tn I am in day 4 of Subutex withdrawal. I was on it for 5 months. The first 4 at 4mg a day, the last month gradually tapering down to .5 mg. I am in withdrawal HELL. No energy, I take vitamin B supplements, which help very short term. I am taking clonidine, which helped some as well. But the RLS is driving me insane. HOW can I stop this? And when will I start to feel better. Can long term sub users who have gone through withdrawal please help me?
Avatar n tn How long does hydrocodine show up in your system for a drug test. I take this drug for the pain I get with Lymes Disease. I'm starting a new job and they will ask for a drug test. How soon do I need to get off of them so it don't show up on my test. Thanks.
Avatar n tn also, my doctor showed me a dosage chart for oxy, and it goes way up there.....we are at the bottom of the totem pole, so if pain increases we should be ok....w/ tolerance.
Avatar n tn I am trying to come off of Heroin after a relapse of about three months ( I was completley clean for 4 1/2 years) and I've got the mexican version of buprenorphine and was curious about your dosage. And about this **** about 24 to 48 hours abstinent? What happens if I don't wait? I am assuming of course I'll get sick but for how long? Would the antagonist affect of the drug be similar to taking narcon or naltrexon (rapid detox) and if so for how long?
Avatar n tn I've been taking hydrocodone for the past five years, and at maximum prescribed levels (1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours - - which, naturally, means 2 every 4 hours) for the past two. How do I get off this stuff? Cold turkey? Phased withdrawal?
