Common Questions and Answers about How long does naloxone last


224049 tn?1204594715 In both studies where naltrexone was shown to be effective, it was combined with treatment from professional psychotherapists. 5. How long does naltrexone take to work? Naltrexone's effects on blocking opioids occurs shortly after taking the first dose. Findings to date suggest that the effects of naltrexone in helping patients remain abstinent and avoid relapse to alcohol use also occur early. 6. Are there some people who should not take naltrexone?

Avatar m tn The withdrawal has not been bad but I am losing patience. How long does this last? I sure would appreciate any info. Does anyone know a time line for withdrawal. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Can someone answer this. 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 Is taking 1mg of xanex to help she didn't know she was in trouble, how long would you expect the withdrawral to last would the aleve help.
Avatar n tn Since no one really actually answered this question....the answer is if you take Suboxone for 2-3 consecutive weeks you will build a tolerance and will start to become physically dependent.
Avatar m tn suboxone and subutex are the same, only suboxone has naloxone in it, subutex does not. they would both block any opiate taken depending on your dose of sub though. regardless, i am sure you will have to be off either one for this procedure, although you will have to discuss this with your oral surgeon and suboxone doctor and make sure you do, it is possible you could end up really ill if this is not handled properly... are you getting general or local anesthesia?
Avatar m tn Btw I will keep u all updated I promise and after I get myself better I will try to be half the man gnarly and many others of u are by trying to help others! God bless you all!!!! Does anyone know of any long term side effects of methadone use? I used to drink ALOT on methadone too....that prob doesn't help. Any liver/kidney/mental issues related to mdone use long term?
Avatar n tn i have taken the buprenorphine tablets for a few years before but my prescription got stopped so i opted for the above tablets for the time being whilst im on the waiting list to go back on the buprenorphine.does anyone know how long i have to stop taking the deydrocodeine and tramadol for before i can start taking the buprenorphine again please.
Avatar n tn If this i withdrawl symtoms how long should i expect them to last? They told me at the VA this was non-addictive.
Avatar n tn How long now have you been clean, and during the first few weeks of your detox, how long were you afflicted with depression and lethargy? Thanks guys.
717440 tn?1292747342 How long do you think it takes to get hooked on Sub? I've been taking it for 5 days now (this time). I've heard all these horror storeis and don't understand because sev yrs back I was on it for 2 yrs and had no trouble when it came time to get off, and same with getting off benzos too - so now why? I don't understand.
Avatar n tn If anyone can help with these questions please post. I am kind of getting nervous here..... I took my last perc last night at 9:00. I was told 24 hours to wait but I was detoxing today so I just took the subox. Is this why I don't feel anything? Have I ruined the whole thing??? I was not thrown into w/d thank god, but shouldn't I be feeling better than I was? This is gross but I have to ask....after the pill dissolves I still have saliva in my mouth.
Avatar n tn What? I heard once that you can scream NO in your head... what else? How long do those crazed urges last? What was/is your drug of choice and how long have you been clean, etc.? What's your story? Thanks SOOO much for being here for me. And thanks for telling me that it's repulsive. Now that I've told someone, I sort of can't believe that I"ve been doing that for a YEAR!!!! WHY, WHY, WHY am I like this???
Avatar f tn Also my docter now wants me to use Naltrexone for a month or two, he believes that it can actually speed up PAWS, to that amount of time, instead of possibly up to 2 years as it can last that long. I am a little scepticle, i know its a opiate blocker and that not alot of research has yet been done to determine that it can do something like that yet. Also with my withdrawals come back when i start using it since it blocks out the receptors, even if im around 10-14 days clean or more?
Avatar n tn I would not EVEN consider, under ANY circumstances taking naloxone for any reason other than a overdose on agonist opiates. Also,long term use of naloxone is not recommended because of liver problems that occur. Lastly I am not sure bupre/NX is a maint medicine. I think it is only for a short term such as a year or so tops. AT least with Laam/methadone you can have pain relief. A person Like you and me might be on methadone for the rest of our lives. If not, I have a protocol from Dr.
Avatar f tn I am new here and have gotten A LOT of excellent advice and support in just the 2days that I have been posting. I am now trying to make the descison on how to get out of this nightmare...CT or to taper. In my previous post I stated that my goal is to do it over 4th of July weekend (dont have to work and kids will be away w/ family). But, I still would like to know the deal w/ Sub and Methadone...
Avatar n tn What does Ambien do as far as memory/blackouts (I have searched online and didnt get any answers.. would love to pull up that long ago discussion here.. if I knew how..) And what is this (very) low blood pressure condition.. hypo-whatever? As an aside, if you type in your nickname into Yahoo! search (or most likely any search engine).. it brings up THIS drug BB, or other BBs where you post..
Avatar n tn ir detox from oxycodone im going thru a hospital that has behavoial health what should i do to detox with no withdrawel feelings and will suboxone control my paine like the oxycodones did?
Avatar f tn tim, how long you been clean? studio, thanks. does anyone have any suggestions for pain relief without hydro? trust me, ive tried everything. my mom, sister and grandmother all suffer from the same disease. my sister and mom said they'd rather be pill poppers than in pain everyday. i dunno what to do.
Avatar m tn I do not want to do any sort of maintanence on sub, just finish my detox. Has anyone done this, and if so, how long did you have to stay on Sub, before starting the detox off of that? If I stay on methadone, @ this dose it's gonna be another year on this crap if I don't want to kill myself with the w/drawals of detoxing too fast. Plus, I hate the drive EVERY day.
Avatar n tn and it was silly now that i look back on it and i definitely DO NOT ever recommend doing this...subutex does not have naloxone in it like suboxone the risk of throwing you into wds is probably not as high i would guess...altho using after taking it is a waste of time because both stick to your receptors and cover them up so no other narcotic can find a seat to sit in...
220617 tn?1292034642 Methadone has a long half life I was told and have read that if you are not off the methadone for 7twohrs the naloxone in the suboxne could send you into full blown w/d that could last for a long time. I would be very careful at the dose you are on not to take it too early or to find a way to get Subutex. Just my opinion.
Avatar f tn Do not stop using tramadol suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, sweating, nausea, diarrhea, tremors, chills, hallucinations, trouble sleeping, or breathing problems. Talk to your doctor about how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when stopping the medication. Do not crush the tramadol tablet. This medicine is for oral (by mouth) use only. Powder from a crushed tablet should not be inhaled or diluted with liquid and injected into the body.
484378 tn?1209909492 I dont care how I get there, as long as I know the end result will get me clean and STAY clean. Ive never been sooo ready for my new life, and I have read about Sub IN DEPTH, and I DO know that I have to wean off of that too someday...Im ok with long as I am changing my daily habits, the cravings, and learning to live Norco free!!! =D I hate this life anymore, and as I said before, if i could have went yesterday or the day before, I would have...
Avatar f tn “We took an abused drug and we said let’s use it to treat addiction to heroin and opiates.” Last year patients filled about 9 million prescriptions for Suboxone or buprenorphine products, many perhaps not realizing they were taking another opioid to treat their opioid addiction. Buprenorphine is a narcotic, a powerful and potentially addicting painkiller that was first approved as a treatment for opioid addiction in the U.S. in 2002.
Avatar m tn Since the mechanisms of opioid dependence and withdrawal are not fully understood, it is difficult to determine how long withdrawal symptoms will last or how severe they may be for different individuals.
Avatar n tn ( May sound silly but I have heard that many times !!) Actually, how long does it stay in the urine ? How controlled is methadone ? I thought it was very hard to get on the street... now reading here it seems it's not so hard afterall. ( ?? ) Thank you for your comments which shed positive light on a drug that many of us are not well informed about. Patrice made a comment about her husband being on the stuff years ago and he was like a zombie.
