Avatar f tn t mix well maybe they could use fentanyl for the procedure and a day or two afterwards and then lower doseage and put you back on the sub?
Avatar n tn im going through a rough time getting off norcos and percocets , and i have been on and off subutex for 2 yrs now but the secound i can get some norcos free i take them and my tolorance is the same even after being on 2 mg of subutex for 4 months , i still have to take 4 norcos to feel anything. anyway my question is do alot of you experience pain and aches on subutex or is it just from not haveing natrual pain killers anymore , i feel like im 60 yrs old on a daily basis , please let me know ?
Avatar f tn Please help...I've decided to go off my pain meds and go on subutex and suboxone. So im on my second day of fentanyl 100mcg patch and dilaudid withdrawals. It's really bad already. Any suggestions how do you really know when your in full withdrawal. Before you start your subutex. Any and all advice would be appreciated.
5023383 tn?1362471442 I'm interested in knowing all of the effects from Subutex? Please. I'm in withdrawal from 200 mcg Fentanyl, 120 mcg Oxycodone, my Dr decided to drop them because she thought I'd be better off. I begged her to taper me off, yet she was so.......Godly, she told me I was lucky she didn't prescribe the Lorazepam or I'd be losing it as well.
Avatar f tn have never abused my meds. My Dr retired and my new Dr wants to switch me to subutex. My concern is what happens if I fracture a bone or need an angioplasty or some other emergency type of surgery as I will most likely be on subutex for the rest of my life? My understanding is subutex blocks the analgesic effects of analgesics & anesthesia.
Avatar n tn You cant take pain pills then a subutex or suboxone. Who told you to do that? Subutex and suboxone are to be used when coming off opiates and you must wait from the time of your last use of opiates and wait until your in withdrawal and wait until u cant take it anymore then you take the subutex and youll feel better in less than an hour.
516810 tn?1211590206 For the past year I have been taking 75 mcg fentanyl patches every three days.I need and want to stop and get back to living a clean FUN life.I don't get them by prescription so I can not goto a dr to taper off.I have tried on my own and it was total HELL! The thought of those feelings again scares me to death.I read about Suboxone and wonder if someone here can tell me how it worked for them.Also money wise how much did it run?
369629 tn?1237812958 Sub in both of its forms (Subutex for the beginning of treatment and Suboxone for the maintenance phase) is a drug that is used to treat opiate dependence, however, like methadone, it too is addictive, so once you use Subutex and Suboxone to get away from the opiates, you then have to detox from the Suboxone. It's kind of an out of the frying pan and into the fire thing. Both Subutex and Suboxone are sublingual tablets, meaning you put them under your tongue to dissolve.
Avatar f tn 22 days off the hard fentanyl and dilaudid. And 18 days on my subutex treatment plan. I'm so ANGERY!!! At everything and everybody. After my dr's appt yesterday it just escalated. I was told by one Dr that with my history and medical condition that 16mg of subutex was not enough that 8 mg should be added in the afternoon. My primary who is also my pain management Dr didn't agree.

Avatar m tn I stopped taking my Suboxone strips for 24hrs. Went into immediate surgery. They gave me Fentanyl, several hydromorphone doses, and a benzo. Got out of the hospital waited 12hrs took my Suboxone. Been taking it for a week. Still feeling surgery effects and I have these weird withdrawl like symptoms. One minute the hairs on my neck stand up, the next im sweating only minor, then I get nausea, then I feel shaky. Its been 8 days since surgery.
Avatar m tn m not sure about that. I am on subutex/suboxone withdrawal at the moment(almost a month now) and you may have some withdrawal in general due to being an opiate.
Avatar n tn Some opiates cause histamine release-- particularly morphine-- that can cause itching and a rash. Some high-potency synthetic opiates--namely fentanyl and sufentanil-- cause facial itching, particularly around and inside the nose. Some medications can cause a feeling of extreme restless called 'akathesia' that sometimes presents as intense itchiness over the body, especially the legs.
Avatar f tn , lol) I have Looked in to this MAGIC CURE-all, and i have found that SUBOXONE and Subutex, even BUP can be ABUSED and IS, they had to put the BUP Patches into a Matrix as with the Fentanyl, and there are LOT OF PEOPLE ABUSING THE SUBOXONE as well.... they Can get a "High" and within 5 mins on Google i had found out that people are Abusing these meds all over Europe and HERE in US.... i have been at the Same level of pain meds for over 2 years...
Avatar f tn Like when I took methadone and used buprenorphine to detox, my doctor used a chart and found that 16mgs of subutex was equivalent to my 200mgs methadone habit. I took 8mgs and was fine, which according to my doctor, was not enough, but my body said it was. So, I suppose my next question is, how does 50mcgs feel?
1311839 tn?1282480602 An ex girlfriend says she will give me 3 fentanyl 50microgram an hour patches which will do me 9 days and stop the WDs.Im not asking you if you think im doing the right thing.Im scared as I dont know if suboxone has given me a high enough tolerance to easily handle fentanyl.Does anyone have the answer to this.That fentanyl is a potent drug which is not even given to non opiate tolerant patients so obviously im a bit reluctant.Does anyone know.
Avatar f tn ..until I got home and hopped on the computer to look it up I figured this doctor was doing me a big favor. I told him today I wanted to get away from Oxys. So he lowered my script from 3 20mgs oxy a day to 3 10 mg oxy a day and put me on Fentanyl 25mcg every 3 days. Anyways, I put one on and don't like them at all. They make me feel very depressed, moody and tired so I looked it up and good grief, it makes oxy look like a walk in the park.
480035 tn?1222366164 “Suboxone is referred to as a cure for dependency to opiate-based painkillers including Oxycontin®, Vicodin®, Lortab® and Fentanyl, however, because it is half-opiate in composition it can create the same type of physical reliance as any other opiate,” said Clare Kavin, executive director for the Waismann Method. “Many patients have the misconception that because this drug is prescribed by their doctors that it is safe and effective, but they must be educated on the potential risks.
Avatar m tn Yes you can that's what I did to get off my fentanyl patches and Percs. I started the end of feb and now I'm down to .50mg of subs. Just make sure you don't let the doctor start you on to high of a dose. Only take the minimum amount needed to help the w/d then stabilize on the dose. If you message me ill tell you how I did it. I guess we are not suppose to put tapering information in comments.
Avatar m tn are subutex and suboxone identical...i thought suboxone was the one with the naloxone in it....it is not recommended to take either while on meds like oxy...
Avatar f tn Hey all, I talked to my doctor and he lowered my dose of oxy down from 3 20mgs a day to 3 10 mgs a day and prescribed the fentanyl patch. Yesterday afternoon I put the patch on and didn't take much oxy. I'm also taking them orally now instead of snorting them. Not a huge step but a little one. I havent taken a dose of oxy orally in months so its a step in the right direction for me. Anyways by nightfall I was feeling depressed, sad and just crappy.
1895503 tn?1332373374 We use Fentanyl duragesic patches in hospice and its a long acting pain medication,,you change the patch every 3 days. I would think you would only be trading a long acting pain med for another more potent one. Fentanyl also is stored in your fat cells. Please consult with your doctor...but I would be leary of the fentanyl. Consult with your doctor.
Avatar f tn Hi there, My son has had an addiction prob for 15 years , started off on cannibis quickly moved to injecting heroin with all the problems that brings ie family probs, stealing ,shop lifting , homelessness, prison, broken relationships , the list goes on and on. He is now on 16 mgs of subutex and back home with me . He tells me that he craves opiodes all the time and is having a rough time , he sleeps badly ,seems depressed and often looks drugged up.
535089 tn?1400673519 5 mg or less before quitting. The withdrawal is not as bad as fentanyl, but insomnia, digestion, RLS, and lack of motivation and energy are normal. Fentanyl is the only opiate stronger than subs, glad you got off it. This is all very general to give you some ideas. What is your plan with subs?
3010990 tn?1340511756 To educate yourself, read the suboxone/subutex FAQs at the bottom of this page. Google COWs to get a better understanding of of sub induction. There are special condiderations with methadone. I quit methadone using subutex and it saved my life, but I'm glad I did my research. What is your doctors plan for using subs, or are you doing this on your own? You can pm me as well about subs if you need more info.
Avatar f tn Any mothers here pregnant while on subutex and please don't judge me...thanks..
Avatar f tn Will A Doctor perscribe Subutex and Pain Medication together before a surgery? I have a friend who is an addict but she is telling me that her doctor is giving her one Subutex a day with pain medication before surgery. She claims that the doctor wants her to take the subutex still once a day so that while shes taking the pain medication she wont become addicted. I think her story is a big lie but im wondering what your thoughts are..
