Avatar n tn It does not contain naloxone Suboxone- is buprenorphine plus naloxone.. Naloxone is actually NOT the blocker.. it is in there to prevent the use of it IV and was to help discourage diversion of the streets.. hence why more people are prescibed Suboxone. Buprenorphine is what does the blocking. the drug itself at certain levels will prevent other opiates from attaching to the receptors. So both drugs block opiates.
Avatar n tn You start by going into W/D and then taking only one or two mg and then wait for an hour --- most people can tell a real difference - enough so that they can still function but not alleviate all the symptoms of W/D. Well, do whatever you have to do to get clean - but just beware of staying on Sub for too long.
Avatar n tn They are combined together to prevent inter-venous abuse of this medication. In the US this Suboxone has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of opiate drug addiction. However many individuals who start using it to treat their addiction, become addicted to Suboxone itself. Having said that it is still a viable option and does work for some people as a tapering tool off of opiates. Patients on Suboxone should be able to function well. It is not normal that your son is so groggy.
Avatar n tn well you have to be off methadone for 3 entire days becaus emethadone has a half life-meaning it takes 36 hours to get out of your system but after 48 hours you have 1/2 left, this is what my counsler at the clinic says, i am also going cold turkey off 70mg 2nd day,i am achy and i feel shi*** but showers and keeping busy has helped somewhat- but i am not starting my suboxone until i am 3 full days, good luck come back if you need help
1054484 tn?1255117167 The w/d symptoms were killing me. Suboxone is a compound of naloxone and buprenorphine (not sure on spelling) The naloxone is a very mild amount and is something ER doctors use in opiate overdoses. The buprenorphine is a lot harder to explain, it does seem to help with pain but is very nasty. The point is that this stuff can bring your w/d symptoms to be extremely minimal as long as you dont take them until you are at least 3 to 4 days into w/d's.
Avatar f tn sorry-- Suboxone will keep the beast away while your son can get on the right track, but if he dosen't change the way he lives his life, suboxone wont help a bit. The longer on buprenorphine, the harder it is to get off. Ask your doctor about tapering and see what he says...he will probably say it's too early...depending how much your doc knows about subs and addiction. Sadly there are doctors out there in suboxone just for the money. I went against my doctors will and tapered myself off.
Avatar f tn he really should be doing some research and read and ask anything he can before he goes to his appointment, so he is well informed on how suboxone works and the ways it can be used... i have had a positive experience with suboxone and it has really worked for me...but it should be used as a tool, and in conjunction with therapy or meetings of some kind, some doctors require it... good luck and if he has any questions have him post or send a private message. good luck!
307401 tn?1194835748 suboxone,com they have a physician fined based on zip codes, You always best to go to a pain management as I do to get the suboxone who ever they all do not have the suboxone waiver to prescribe the medication, but they are usually more reasonable and except insurance, where as many of the sub dr that dont deal in pain management or accept insurance is in it for the money, average price for 1st visit should be $175.00 to $250.
Avatar n tn It's too complicated to figure out how long you have to be off the Sub to feel the effects of an opiate, when you will probably have to go into withdrawal to do it. The part about Sub being used for pain is also true. I have heard it is prescribed to people just for pain. A third point is that I have never had any kind of dental surgery that needed Percoset.
Avatar n tn Had no effects, still went into sever death withdrawals, each time having to risk arrest and accident to get to my drug of choice to pull me out of this down hill spiral. I just want everyone to know prior to trying siboxone, just know its not the "miracle drug" that everyone is saying. And, I will die using my drug of choice before doing that again.
1909146 tn?1326509308 this is the problem when you get it from a friend instead of a clinic you tok it to soon you need to be in full blow withdrawals b/4 you take it otherwise you go into participated withdrawals .....
1201433 tn?1329001237 they are supposed to work a recovery program, to learn how to live independent of any pills. that time frame for the sub program greatly varies. we have had members who had done a 21 day program and some that stay on for years and years. there are many schools of thought. how old is your son? is the meetings he is attending mandatory? there are other meetings that are run through churches, overcomers,salvation army,celebrate recovery.
Avatar f tn I have heard of people getting high on Subutex the pure form of beup, but not suboxone, and the people that are able to get high were only people who did not take pain pills everyday or every month for that matter. I don't know maybe it's because you were taking Vicodin, but I was on Oxi's and I'll tell you that there is no way I could ge high off Suboxone.
205111 tn?1224643354 I didnt in any way say you abused i was just saying in general so dont take that wrong but i would like to correct your post a little and please dont take the wrong either but the opiate bupe in the suboxone is what actually does everything the narcan only does anything if shot up and suboxone will not make you sick if you use while taking it actually the way it works is that the bupe is so strong and attatches to receptors so tight that other meds cannot get thru it and get on the receptors to
480035 tn?1222369764 during' care is a MUST for long term success. get to the root of the problems as to why and how we turned to addiction to begin with... its the most important thing you can do for yourself... and i dont think doctors are misinformed, i think it may have a lot to do with what i mentioned - about no 2 stories are the same and you just cant predict how someone will do with suboxone, no one can predict what will happen for the individual.
Avatar f tn Can do - God I love a good laugh - thank you so MUCh for that. Still have mild ringing and know why...just trying to ignore it and come in to work anyway! Beagle - that is what I got out of it there that it interferes with the Intron or something. Or that withdrawl originally makes things replicate faster too. Sounded like a bunch of stuff. Since I'm on the suboxone (which is like methadone except I get it's the "working man's methadone") I am curious now to learn more.
569676 tn?1315644758 In addition because they are so heavy they make new holes, which now have to be filled for the person to stay out of drug withdrawal. If the drug use persists the factory is “dismantled” and can lose its ability to produce any green balls. It may take a very long period of time for it to regenerate and in some cases it may never be able to function at its former level.
Avatar n tn simply because science can't get the Opiate side effect out of this medication. After all it is an opiate, but not like the kind of opiate you take to get high. People like me with Refractory type Uni-polar Depression, (haven't tried it yet) That take Buprenorphine often get significant improvement of their severe depression, when other drugs like MOA and Tri-cyclics just don't offer full relief of their severe symptoms.
Avatar n tn I finally broke open the capsules and dumped out half of the powder in order to reduce the dose from 100mg to 50mg. I paid out-of -pocket for a few at a time waiting for "preapproval". The misery was unbearable and I cooked Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for everybody in this condition. My son and his wife finally pitched in when they realized the condition I was in. Oh, by the way I was helping a friend contract the renovation of two homes at the same time.
Avatar f tn So it does make you wonder if it's subutex/subxone itself causing headaches. My advice to the starter of the topic is to get off subs after 3weeks of use they say a 21day of tappering and the stop .This will minimise any withdrwals when you stop . Please,please don't do what me and above did and stay on subs years because then you'll be fxxked . I'm sure you can't afford to be on subs for long anyway as they're so dam well exspensive .
Avatar m tn If you could get subutex they have the option of 2mg, 4mg, 8mg pills. Subutex is the buprenorphine without the naloxone. Sounds like your doing fine, just thought Id let you know they come in one other option which is the 2mgs of suboxone, I have them right now, they look just like the 8mgs just tiny.
680775 tn?1234875422 I typically have chronic pain from the natural degeneration of the spine because of the postion of the curve. I'm tired of taking opiates and I'm scheduled to start suboxone next Tuesday afternoon under the guidance of my pain management clinic. I have some knowledge of suboxone. I've been on and off this website for the last year or two and I've read both good and bad things about the drug.
Avatar f tn You shouldnt at that point miss the oxycodone, you have to want to be off of them and all that opiate addiction entails. All the constant worry of how many pills you got, running out early, having to find them, dealing with shady people and mainly just the stress from the daily grind of being an opiate addict. Keep posting so you can get as much info as possible, and you will recieve alot of support from the compassionate people here.
177036 tn?1192290235 I really wish I had just not used anything, I was on such a high dos of meds that I felt the full effects of w/d anyway, now I get to go through it twice. How discouraging.
Avatar f tn I would be interested to know how that method spitting it out prevents the naloxone from entering the digestive track
Avatar f tn We love him and want to keep him alive and out of jail. He says he wants to recover but doesn't put alot of effort into it. It seems his dad and I put more effort into it than he does. Now that he injected the very medicine that is supposed to help him, I'm not sure what to do...keep giving him the Subs or stop? I need advise, just don't say kick him out, that will never happen, even though we have considered it many times. He has no money, no job, and no where to go.
Avatar m tn Make a long story short, I tapered my methadone with the aid of an addiction specialist down to 30mgs and switched to suboxone(8mg)/day. My opinion with suboxone is to start on the lowest dose possible that makes you comfortable, plain and simple. Preferably a shorter 21 day regimen of suboxone is ideal for alot of people, I myself was not aware of this when I started over 2 1/2 months ago. Im taking 2-3mgs a day and hopefully planning of being off within next 40days or so.
870151 tn?1239681517 Were all different in how we react to meds, but I had just gotten down to 30mgs after tapering from 140mgs and 8mgs of sub was plenty to keep the w/d's away. If you have any questions feel free to ask, but again I would start tapering your sub dose down to the lowest effective dose possible, it will only help you when it comes time to quit.
