884943 tn?1241662998 I stopped taking suboxone because i took suboxone to get off painkillers and end up ****** up on suboxone. The whole idea is ****** It seems to me that dr make more money the more suboxone they push They are dope dealers who can prescribe liver problems prostate problems kidney problems The whole experience opened my eyes to alot of things. I dont have to take a ******* pill to do something I just get off my *** and do it. Riding my bike walking and fishing are alot of fun.

1054484 tn?1255117167 As of now, I am at day 8 with no methadone, I took a suboxone this morning, two days ago, and the day before that. 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.
Monkey Yes, Suboxone can be used to treat pain both in patients with opioid dependence and in those without it. However, it may or may not be effective in every patient. Please ask your doctor regarding whether it will be suitable for you or not. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar m tn com and check to see if your zip code is near any doctors. As for the liver and side effects, read up on the web site... It will give you enough info I am sure. If not, ask your doctor.
591616 tn?1225462048 This blocking effect will occur regardless of if you use suboxone the form of the drug that has the naloxone or subutex that doesn't in which the subutex often is abused by IV administration.
Avatar f tn Before I address that though, I wanted to also address the damage you are doing to your liver because of the amount of acetaminophen you ingest by taking both percocets and Coricidin. Just Something to think about. Now let me tel you about Suboxone. Suboxone is the brand name for a medication consisting of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is a thebaine derivative with powerful analgesia approximately 20-40x more potent than morphine.
Avatar f tn The first 3 weeks I would throw up everyday, Because I was consipated all the way up to my ribs, I could never eat much, b/c my bowels were so backed up it would not let me eat much, then my stomach would hurt. In the morning I take my am meds and 20-30 mins I would be in the bathroom throwing up. I did go to my primary doctor and he took an x-ray and told me how backed up I was and put me on lacitives and a pill you put under your touge. He also put me on a powder lacitive you mix in juice.
307401 tn?1194835748 I also went through oral surgery while on 32ms of suboxone, My pain management dr and the oral surgeon agreed that I could undergo the procedure. I was told to stop then suboxone 12hrs before the appointment, Suboxone is a partial opiate agonist it does not fill your receptors completely. What is is best know for is producing less euphoria and physical dependence. When compared to full opiate agonist such as Oxycontin, vicodin and heroin.
211417 tn?1189759422 I was clean off of hydrocodone, by using suboxone for about 6-8 weeks tops. And towards the end, I used it every other day, and then every two day, and then so on until I was done. And I was taking any where from 15-25` 10mg norcos daily for around 2-2.5 yrs. There is no wrong answer, I was simply wondering why they do it that way. My doctor was SO different than these other doctors I called, and now I see alot of people using it long term, so I was curious. There must be a reason why.
884943 tn?1241662998 Then I heard of a friend who got off by using suboxone. So i called my local Physc. Doc and made the appointment. Took my first suboxone and 20 minutes later felt like a million dollars. I had done it. I had gotten off Opiates. This was going to be a breeze!! If I had just know then, I could have strangled my doctor while I was there..... OK...enough of me. You didn't come here to read about me. You want off the damn Suboxone. Here goes... *1. Number one and most important of all.
Avatar f tn At this moment I'm going to try to just get off and not start taking the suboxone. Because the methadone has worked so well I figure if I don't make it out to the other side, I'll just go back on methadone. who knows. anyway way to go.
781880 tn?1238114088 I am trying to stay positive and strong. Took brain juice supplement and klor-pac potassium cuz the pills really mess with your liver which mess with potassium. Ewww, it's so gross what pills do to you.
Avatar f tn Suboxone is a toxin to the body. Many people have had enzyme problems after long term use of suboxone. The problem is, there have never been clinical studies of long term buprenorphine use. Therefore, a doctor has no proof of this drugs effects. It was never meant to be used beyond detox from other opiates. It is likely that the subs are causing your problem, not cancer. This is only my opinion, as there is no research to back what I am saying.
Avatar n tn as you surely know, depakote has the potential to damage the liver and there is some much smaller risk of toxicity from naloxone-- maybe, anyway. This is more of a theoretical issue than a big concern though; I would likely check your liver enzymes once per year or so.
Avatar f tn I also have been Dx'd with HVC so I don't know if the Suboxone was effecting my liver function or what. Too early to tell as I just started on the Subutex one month ago. Hope this helps you.
Avatar m tn I just started day four of cold turkey from the same exact dosage!!!! Its not as bad as you think to just go cold turkey. Its not fun bit its no going to kill you. Just think to your self " Im going to get the flu tomorow" and follow the Thomas recipe and be prepared and you will be fine. today or tomorrow i am going to do an hour by hour accounting of my experience maybe it will help you?
Avatar f tn has been trying differnt Bi-polar meds on me and after many trial and errors he has put me on oxcarbazepine, after all the bad affects I have been through mixing other meds with the suboxone I am scared to go trough it all agin does anyone know if these two meds mix ok? I am on 8mg subs 3Xs aday. any help would be great!
Avatar n tn ) I have TWO KINDS of Hep C (genotype 1A and 1B) so it was a little rough to try and reach UNDETECTIBLE for me but I finally did. I don't think the suboxone affected it ONE WAY OR THE OTHER and honestly...I need to start detoxing off of it but don't WANT TO (but I need an operation and well do need the other meds to work so they can knock me out) but as of right now I am on 8mg a day (was on 24mgs a day but found I could tolerate 8 just FINE) Write back when you can.
Avatar f tn I used Suboxone for about 10-days to get out of a pretty heavy Hydrocodone Addiction. I was/am dealing with Chronic Back Issues...&, found the pills wearing off, so I took more & more...Then, more just to feel "normal" (which is an ILLUSION by the way). Your brain is so screwed up & it's tricking you. PLEASE TRUST ME! I have been there, scared to death, more than once. But, this time I'm done. I've asked for help & been honest about everything.
1200909 tn?1306818681 Hey I have been on suboxfilm for like ever and have been through the ringer with opiate addiction for the last 8 to 10 years and have been on and off suboxone the whole time I'm a cronic relapser and it's not perks anymore and has not been for the last five years at times I have been a full blown heroin addict hopefully never again. Although this time is the first time in my life that since I stopped using I have no reservations to get high as I always have had in the past which is fukin great.
Avatar n tn they put him on the suboxone to help the withdrawal from percocet and vicidine abuse. He should only be on it for 6 weeks.
1181804 tn?1333406405 said I should just stop so I did but on day 3 I went nuts with the restlessness. So I gave my hubby the strips and said give me 1/4 and nothing more. I'm now 6 days in. Biggest complaint is how everything takes so much energy..... feel like walking in a lead suit. And the not sleeping was awful but I got more sleep last night. I took a muscle relaxed before bed with my ibuprofen. Maybe that's what did the trick. Good luck to you and keep in touch.
556614 tn?1215840031 but again, with some thought and some attention to this, you can beat it, and stay off. the vik's and the Sub. good luck... and keep posting if you feel the need. it really, really helps.
Avatar m tn I had a heart attack in 2009 and the suboxone helped me gain about 25 lbs and edema in my ankles and other places. Plus I started having dull ache occurrences in my chest that scared the hell out of me. When I stopped taking Suboxone I lost weight and my edema left, plus no more dull aches in my chest. I am trying, but if I had a 2mg film right now, I would take it. I am a ex-marine, I feel I wouldn't do so well in a prisoner of war camp, because I am so willing to submit.
Avatar f tn subs most common symptoms are vomiting and head aches, what dose is she taking are you sure that she is not on other opiates, if she is taking sub and using other opiates she will continue to throw up, she will soon become very very sick can you get her to an na meeting tonight?
210982 tn?1280987495 yeah it is beginning to look like my options are continue taking the pills, remain addicted, filled with anxiety, counting pills, hurting my insides, especially my liver OR get off the pills and hope that the pain I once had is gone and deal with the pain with over-the-counter meds...I dunno, I am just tired of thinking about this all the time.
1349676 tn?1277916049 Still scared =( I've done some research, and it seems people have a much lower incidence of relapse when following the suboxone treatment, AND councilor. Has anyone here tried it? If so, how did it work for you? The day I can wake up and not think about that stupid little white pill will be great. I just need some support, it's easy to feel alienated like this...I can't wait to be Sober again.
Avatar m tn He reffered me to the Suboxone dR in there office and it is on the 14th of March..But I am on the cancellation list at both offices.. The counselor wants me to transfer to the DR there no matter what though.. I agree that it will be better to have them be able to communicate more effectively about my recovery. So as of right now I was able to get some oxy to make last until that appointment(which was blind luck and a long story, but a miracle pretty much)!
