Percocet withdrawal suboxone

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet withdrawal suboxone


Avatar n tn I am terribly ashamed for letting myself get to this point. I have experienced some of these withdrawal syptoms of percocet and it isn't fun, its' miserable and painful! I have never been able to take the withdrawals all the way. I've always crapped out after only a couple days and went back to the pills because of pain and addiction. I read on a medical website that a person can even have seizures from withdrawals, which is really scarey for me.
Avatar f tn what is used to detox from percocet and how long does it take with drugs or cold turkey?
Avatar m tn i really don't think you should tell your doctor anything, because i would NOT recommend suboxone or methadone for your habit. if you have just been back on them for a month and have done this before, it should not be hard to stop. what you need is some sort of aftercare. getting clean is easy, staying clean is not. many people think all they have to do is stop the drug and they will be fine. well, most won't. this is 1/3 physical and 2/3 mental. that is why aftercare is so important.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed to Percocet for 5 yrs. and started suboxone once withdrawls started. It was 8 mg strips and I was taking a quarter to half a strip a day. The first week went smooth but on the 7th or 8th day I started to feel a tingle sensation on the left side of my chest. I continued to take it for a week and the tingle would occur out of nowhere. I went to er because I was freakin out about it.
Avatar m tn Hello. Suboxone has a pretty long drawn out withdrawal.. Unfortunately many of us suboxone users dont realize this until its time to quit. My best advise is to get down to even smaller amounts.. Like a quarter of a quarter.. or tiny crumb of sliver..then every other day.. You will probably have some withdrawal no matter what you do. Just brace yourself and hang in there.. All the normal tips for easing the withdrawal - lots of fluids, advil, hot baths, and exercise..
Avatar m tn No. Why would you want to do that?
Avatar n tn Hopfully a week from today I will be one of the few that was able to leave subs for oxycodone (completely avoiding suboxone withdrawal) and tapering down with oxycodone. One thing I would like to add to anyone trying this.....we have a psycological problem....worry of the wd's....and the desire to feel euphoric. What I have done is look at the oxy's as asprin (not expecting to feel anything at all). That way I don't want to take more than needed.
Avatar f tn I've been clean for a year now but i had to go through a methadone / suboxone clinic to help me because I would give up after the withdrawal got so bad... I started on suboxone and got up to 22mgs and tapered down slowly ( 1/2 mg every 2wks) after 6mpnths. The withdrawal from suboxone is noticeable but nothing like opiates .. this treatment was monitored daily - but worked wonders for me.
Avatar n tn In other words, taking the percocet can actually cause withdrawal like symptoms if you have used suboxone within the last 4 - 5 days. Because you are on a low dose of suboxone, I hope the side effects aren't too bad. Best of luck!
Avatar m tn I have been off Suboxone for 1 week now. My Dr had had prescribed a 2 week withdrawal script but I am unable to take this due to a court ordered program. This Drug Court has said I MUST be clean from this and any other drugs by Nov. 2nd. I've signed my life away to do this so I MUST be clean. Questions: 1.How long will this stay in my system? I had tested positive after taking no Suboxone for 3 days. The court said I should have been negative. They have given me 2 weeks to do this.
217599 tn?1202854552 I got on Suboxone in 2007 and it saved my life! I was on percocet, vicodin, oxy's all kinds of pain pills for 3 years. I took 6 ultram the day before I went to the suboxone clinic for my fisrt dose, they gave me 8mg there. People have told me not to swallow the spit in your mouth until the pill is completly gone. My friend did and withdrawl hit her hard for about 15 mins. I didn't experience any withdrawl at all when I started suboxone or for the 2 years I was on it.
Avatar n tn I had to have dental work done while on subs (wisdom teeth extractions - 2 of them with stitches!) I could not take anything for the pain - other than the sub, obviously. My sub doctor said that it would have no effect. I also called the suboxone hotline and was told the same thing. Advil helped. I got through it though. good luck to you!
Avatar f tn At the bottom of his web site there is a suboxone article about short term sub use. Also, read the suboxone/subutex FAQs at the bottom right of this page.
Avatar f tn I'm scared of the withdrawal because I tried it in the past and I couldn't tolerate the withdrawals. I want to stop with little pain and other symptoms as possible.
Avatar f tn I have read that some use suboxone to help with the withdrawals from pain meds. Also have read that suboxone keeps you from getting the high from pain meds. My husband asked me what exactly is suboxone. I realized that I don't really know the whole answer. What is Suboxone, and what does it do to help you get off pain meds? Is there anyone who can tell me?
Avatar m tn You don't get the full stimulation that comes from full opiate agonists like Percocet, Vicodin or OxyContin. This may be particularly important to you. Suboxone may only be a partial agonist but it's ability to bind to the receptor is extreme. If Suboxone is given to someone using full agonist opiates the Suboxone will push those meds off the receptors and Suboxone takes its place.
307401 tn?1194835748 When compared to full opiate agonist such as Oxycontin, vicodin and heroin. Remember the only time you would go into withdrawal would be if you were to try and inject the suboxone, the naloxone would enter the blood stream and you would become ill within minutes, This is a diversion that was placed in the drug to keep people from misusing it. The naloxone when taken sublingually does not really get into your system at all.
Avatar f tn I'll tell you---a few years from now you will be back here asking how to get off of the Suboxone. Suboxone is not for everyone but can be a great tool to help you get your life together, IF used properly. So, do your homework---don't just jump in. Let us know how you are doing.
Avatar n tn my question is are there any medicines that will help with hydrocodone withdrawal? i have been taking lortab for 5 years and every time i try to stop i get so sick i can t bear it. i have had 3 back operations to try and fix the problem, but now the biggest problem is addiction and withdrawal.i have small children and cant be laid up. i need help desperately and any thing you can tell me will be greatly appriciated..
Avatar n tn Buprenorphine for the management of opioid withdrawal Research report. 2002 How are you doing symptoms are you having? My hats off to you for taking that step to get yourself off these meds. Stick around here this is a great bunch of people.
Avatar f tn Ive tried using suboxone from a friend before and that didnt help the physical withdrawal at all so now i am attempting to slowly wean myself off by using small amounts of percocet or vicodin. Does anyone have any advise on how to get over the physical withdrawal symptoms? Or weaing yourself off pain meds?
Avatar n tn And alternative therapies are a good thing to also look into. Take percocet for norco withdrawal is like drinking gin for vodka withdrawal. NOT a good idea!! Good luck to you - and hang in there. Time is your very best friend right now.
Avatar m tn I agree that clonodine can be helpful with withdrawal and could be discussed with your doctor to see if it's an option, but it may not be an option for everyone, just like suboxone. For some people they can get through withdrawal without prescriptions and just use vitamins and natural supplements, it just depends on each person's individual needs.
