Mixing percocet with suboxone

Common Questions and Answers about Mixing percocet with suboxone


Avatar f tn can you mix methadone with somas and/or xanax????? I know that you cant mix suboxone with benzo's but what's the difference with methadone?
Avatar n tn I have been addicted to opana (oxymorphone) and percocet for almost two years. It started with a back injury when I worked for a cleaning company, I had to quit my job, and after a month of failed chiropractic therapy and physical therapy, my pain was not any better, so my mom started giving me her 5mg opana. It started with one here and there, but after a month or so I was completely addicted and started snorting them for better relief and because I loved the high I got from it.
917008 tn?1251227579 Okay, I better hurry up. I do not of a doctor who will allow the Valium with either Methadone or Suboxone. If it were me, and since I have taken both, I would go with the ...ooopppssss...ran out of time......
Avatar n tn I know with our doctor he basically stated that the only things not to take with the suboxone where the percocet and kadian due to the withdrawal effects. I listed all of the other meds he is on and he said that it was all fine. If you are still worried after talking to the doctor than maybe you should call your primary and do a double check. Just a thought. Good luck, let us know what happens please!!
306455 tn?1288865671 Suboxone amount does not need to be increased as time goes on. Instead, you decrease your dose slowly. Suboxone also can help with some pain issues.
Avatar m tn I have known too many people with horrific methadone experiences and it can be extremely dangerous.. One thing about suboxone is it is basically impossible to OD on - Methadone is very easy to OD on, Ive personally known a lot of people who were lucky to get to the ER in time.. even when you dont think your taking too much. Anyway - if you need a maintenance program, sub is a much safer route. The side effects will subside most of the time as your body adjusts.
Avatar m tn You are mixing it up with precipitated withdrawal. That's what happens if you take sub too soon after stopping full agonists, the sub rips off the full agonist from your receptors and binds to them, making you sick as hell.
Avatar f tn There is no comparison between Methadone and Suboxone they are two different drugs. Methadone is soooooo 19080's- archaic, old, outdated, ****** and unsuccessful, go find out how many ppl have successfully weaned off meth- most stay on for life. Suboxone will CURE your addiction if you deal with the issues underlying. You could easily get 'er done in a year. I"m on 4mg and can easily go a week betweeen doses with very mild withdrawal.
Avatar n tn I started out on Lexapro fine and have no problems with it still but with Tramadol I feel completely alone with dealing what I can clearly see as an addiction. I started out at 2 pills in the am and 2 and night. Now I take ten in the morning till I start to slow down around lunch time then I take ten more. I take 20 50mg pills a day and I can't stop. The quantities consistently increase no matter how I try to stop taking them all together. The withdrawls scare the hell out of me.
Avatar n tn Come on for vicodin or whatever form of hydrocodone you are taking just cold turkey it or if you can't do that go with the suboxone or get some benzos and clonidine to help you detox. Hydrocodone is really not all that strong.
Avatar f tn Tom is correct - suboxone is to detox off the percocet. If he takes the suboxone while he is still taking percocet, it could put him into withdrawal. Suboxone is also designed to take once daily, not multiple times per day. 8 mg should be fine for the first week to detox, then as Tom said, taper down, cut the pill in quarters and have your husband take 3/4 for a few days, then go do half for about a week, then go to 1/4, and then 1/8 if you can cut it that small.
1474625 tn?1371100679 They're PHYSICALLY DEPENDENT. Addiction by definition includes drug seeking and taking more than prescribed or mixing with benzos, alcohol, etc., in order to "get high." (The methadone might potentiate a buzz from the benzo, but it's not the methadone doing it.) 3. The medical community never uses, acknowledges, tells you or prescribes GABAPENTIN at a dose that will virtually eliminate the worst withdrawal symptoms. 4.
Avatar f tn I also took some suboxone before getting them filled. I Dono if they were the wrong pills or had to do with the suboxone but they don't really do anything for me this month. That's minor compared to what's really bothering me. I get this feeling of overwhelming nothingness in my mind that gives me so much anxiety. I can't think of a better way to describe it than just constantly thinking about nothing and panicking because I can't figure out why my thoughts are racing and my mind is blank.
Avatar n tn I am currently addicted to Vicodin ES. I am taking (when I have it) anywhere from 10-15 a day. I have been addicted for about 18 months, hardcore for the last 6 months or so. I have to take at least 5 at a time to feel normal. The other day when I ran out, of course I was going thru horrible wd's. Sweating (palms and soles of feet mostly), agitation, thoughts, etc and etc.
Avatar m tn I agree with No Name and IBK, You should call someone ,you are mixing a few drugs now ,I am not sure how well they mix, plus you have a illness on top of everything . A treatment program that can monitor your health as well may be the way to go.
Avatar m tn To worried878 I was taking 80-100 mgs of OC's and 40-60 mgs of percocet everyday not mixing that high but what ever I could get! Vicoden is junk never did anything for me @ all! I would have to taks 20-5mgs or 10mgs just to get the FEELING! Ya it was bad!!
Avatar f tn So yes, you can get high from subutex, thats why most doc's prescribe suboxone instead of subutex. And as with any opiate, mixing xanax or other benzo's greatly enhances the opiate's effect. Often opiate addicts will begin doing this once their opiate tolerance is so great that they no longer get high, but rather just take the opiate's to not be sick. Oxycontin is a perfect example. Snorting 80 mg's of OC mixed with 1 to 2 mg of xanax will get you higher than snorting 240 mg's of Oxy.
Avatar m tn Let alone the risk of accidental overdose when mixing with alcohol or other drugs. So, I searched around and have found buprenorphine (Subutex/Suboxone). It so far seems to be a miracle drug. The withdrawal seems MUCH less severe and shorter than methadone, as well as being generally safer. The only downsides I've found so far is that it doesn't work very well for pain (nowhere near as well as Percocet or Vicodin) and also most noteworthy PRICE!
Avatar n tn Does she have an appointment with a suboxone doctor on Monday? That would probably be a good Idea. If she does go cold turkey.....hang on the reins because she will probably get very sick. I may be very scary for you. She may feel as if she is going to die, but if she is in fairly decent health she should be ok. Also, you have to be in moderate withdrawal--some say, anywhere from 12-24 hours.
Avatar f tn Anyone use methodone to help with hydro addiction? Any help on a good regiment? The pharmacist did tell me that some people take the norco and methodone together at the same time, of course i don't plan on doing that I was more so asking how far apart the 2 meds can be taken since my dr said to use both meds one every 8 hours (methodone) and the norco every 6. I'm feeling good and that I am in a very lucky place right now, another few days and I can loose this place.
Avatar f tn I wrote them an extensive letter saying why I tested positive for codeine (I had accidentally been taking my stepfather's Tylenol 3 mixed in with my Percocet when my mom gave me a smaller pill bottle to keep in my purse) and oxycodone (I took the last 3 pills of Oxycontin new I had received a prescription for two years ago as stemming as a side effect from a bad reaction to a bone-hardening agent I received for osteoporosis since I can't do oral pills).
Avatar n tn But be sure he's not mixing it with ANYTHING! Especially xanax! Good luck!
Avatar m tn Actually getting a prescription for Soma is getting more harder everyday, lots of doctors will not prescribe it for any reason, so what that doctor did is not unheard of. I guess when mixing soma with prescription pain meds like hydrocodone and oxycodone gives the person a heroin like high...atleast thats what I've heard and been told by many doctors and nurses.
822153 tn?1333066595 Congrats.... I know all about the mixing this with that trying to find something that I could control and maintain some nornalicy in my life.....I was never successful...........At some point I crssed the line into full blown addiction.... Welcome, the war is over...
374225 tn?1269902862 Ive actually heard of people who've died from methadone withdrawls, not sure if that's a fact, but Ive heard it from multiple people that it has happended. Most of the deaths involving methadone are related to mixing it with benzo's, and for that methadone related deaths are at an all time high. I dont want to sound like I hate methadone, cause it helped me for a short while, but had to pay a high price for that help.
Avatar m tn Just to be honest with my last go around with 120mgs of methadone I tapered down to 30mgs and went the suboxone route. Ive been clean since Oct.08 with one slight slip up that I quickly got away from. The good news is it sounds like you have the determination and will power to get it done, I know how hard tapering methadone is, it does take alot of discipline to stick to a tapering schedule.
Avatar m tn There is no 'healing' that happens with suboxone. Not unless you are getting acute therapy and really working on changing your life while on it and if you can do that, most people wouldnt need it. For me, all it did was inevitably delay withdrawal. Coming off suboxone is still the hardest thing Ive ever done and I suffer even now. I do not believe I would be as emotionally messed up and depressed had I just stopped painkillers, gotten the therapy and support and not gone on suboxone.
388261 tn?1215403444 For example, my agoraphobia, which I never had in my life before detox, got really bad when I was on Heroin. I couldn't go outside without banging up a cc and mixing it with coke. (aka: Zombie dust) If I wasn't on anything, I made up excuses as to why I couldn't go out. And when I detox, it all comes back again until I am over the whole process. It will happen again, even this time once I am through with my last pill. As of this moment, I am on 17 Vicoprofin 7.
Avatar f tn First off take a breath and calm down, we are here for you. But firts things first, what medications are you exactly taking RIGHT NOW?? You cant be mixing all of this stuff right now. We have had plenty of pregnant women here using suboxone to help. I have known of plenty of women on Methadone as well.
871357 tn?1244044313 Please let me know your decision - I am trying to decide what to do about my husband mixing percocets with LARGE amounts of alcohol and I am fearful. Facility, intervention, divorce.......not sure what to do.
