Suboxone manufacturer

Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone manufacturer


Avatar m tn SOME Medical insurances cover Suboxone, but not many. If you're trying to buy insurance to cover the costs, them I'm afraid that the premiums would probably be more than the cost of drugs.
Avatar f tn I too was a 20 year methadone patient. I have tried numerous times to switch to suboxone. On suboxone I cannot sleep, I have extremem anxiety, and I have no energy. I am not sick but I do not feel normal. I have been told by the manufacturer that this is a common complaint from long term methadone maintenance patients. I suggest you return to methadone. Follow your own bodies advice and ignore the rest. Only you know how your body functions and reacts to medication.
1091982 tn?1256946113 i broke my contract with my pain doctor, and the solutions are either getting methadone or suboxone. i was scheduled for knee surgery today but i was in bad withdrawal from the 100mcg patches that the anesthesiologist wanted to re-schedule the surgery. i have tried methadone clinics-which are not really for pain management- and it is pretty much like being around a bunch of drug seeking people-unless you can afford the private clinic.
Avatar f tn She could have some severe reactions from it and has you know the manufacturer states that Appropriate use of SUBOXONE Do not use SUBOXONE or SUBUTEX for conditions for which they were not prescribed. Patients with a clinical need for analgesia should not be transferred to a SUBOXONE regimen. SUBOXONE is not indicated for pain management. Why aren't these websites telling the TRUTH!!
Avatar f tn Some info about Suboxone: Just about everything you need to know. These are the best practice guidelines created by experts for Suboxone: Gives your brain time to heal, reduces/eliminates cravings, keeps you from getting high even if you do relapse. Gives you time to break all of those bad habits you developed while using without having to combat the withdrawal and cravings at the same time. - info straight from the manufacturer.
Avatar n tn I just got a prescription filled for Suboxone and am wondering how much I have to be in withdrawals to begin taking Suboxone. I've read that if you are taking under 30mgs of Methandone, you can start Suboxone immediately but have also read that you must be in full withdrawals to begin. If I start the Suboxone now, what will happen? Will I be in worse withdrawals than if I just wait and take in a couple of days? I'm wondering which w/d's will be worse (Methadone or starting Suboxone).
Avatar f tn The manufacturer has an assistance program. Google Suboxone assistance or try
Avatar f tn Is it safe to take 30mgs of adderall, 4-8mgs of Xanax and 4-6mg of suboxone a day?
Avatar n tn Everything is relative, but about 4 months ago the manufacturer of Suboxone sent a notice to doctors and pharmacists saying that because of the ceiling effect of buprenorphine, and because of the diversion of the drug, the maximum dose should be no more than 16 mg per day. The notice went on to state that a rare patient may require doses of up to 24 mg for a very short period of time, but that higher doses were never indicated.
222369 tn?1274478235 There are a number of studies looking at diversion-- none perfect, but many people are trying, from the manufacturer, to NIDA, to NIH, to SAMHSA.
Avatar n tn I was on suboxone for 4 years (about 8mg per day at first and tapered down to 1mg). Here comes the tricky part...under the supervision of my addiction specialist, I switched to oxycodone and think it will be easier to come off that that the dredded subox. Subox is 30 times mg per mg more powerful than oxycodone. And with its half life, it is like taking 30 mgs of percocet but never coming off of it for 24 to 36 hrs. That is a lot of percocet to fill those shoes.
Avatar m tn I've been on Suboxone for 18 months. It was mostly covered by my previous insurance. I'm on Medicaid now and it is $800 'out of pocket' for a months prescription. Too much. I've filled out some coupon forms but the Pharmacy says it rarely covers a fraction of what it says it does. Anyone know how I can stay on Subs cheaper than $800 month? Thanks in advance for your replies.
8323481 tn?1405709254 There are many recovery options out there. ________________________________________________________ The Great Suboxone Debate But like so many other drugs, the data the manufacturer showed the FDA for approval of Suboxone told only part of the story. Most clinical trials are small, short-term, and selective, so once the drug is marketed—and Big Pharma is nothing if not a marketing juggernaut—its long-term effects in large numbers of people begin to show the drug’s true colors.
Avatar n tn And I've heard a lot of mad things about methadone, and good things about suboxone. I have goverment insurance and I'm really having a hard time tryin to find a doctor that will take my insurance it's really expensive.
Avatar f tn Hi. I was wondering if someone taking suboxone would have a lower milk supply since in so many other ways it deadens the parasympathetic (or autonomic) nervous system, e.g. it slows down intestinal activity, causing constipation, it decreases respiratory depth and rate, it can increase or decrease heart rate, and it can prevent orgasm in men and women.
Avatar n tn i was on oxys for about a year and have now been on suboxone for about 3 weeks. i was taking 8 mg. in the AM and 4-8mg in the PM. yesterday was the first day that i took only 8mg and today is the first day i only took 4 mg. the reason i'm doing this is because i was sick of feeling "medicated" and not like myself.
900457 tn?1266786289 Does Medi Cal cover the cost of the prescription for Suboxone or the doctors fee for Suboxone? Are there any special programs that do help with the costs of this treatment?
Avatar f tn Hi , does anyone know if suboxone is available in the UK, Im currently tapering off codeine phosphate and just wondered if this available over here as i wouldnt want to start methodone.
Avatar f tn Lawyer says we need a hearing before the WC judge, which will take about 6 weeks to schedule. The manufacturer states that Appropriate use of SUBOXONE Do not use SUBOXONE or SUBUTEX for conditions for which they were not prescribed. Patients with a clinical need for analgesia should not be transferred to a SUBOXONE regimen. SUBOXONE is not indicated for pain management.
6378426 tn?1380770366 I'm surprised they have you on Suboxone and not Subutex (Suboxone contains buprenorphine and Naloxone. Because Naloxone can sometimes cause symptoms of opiate withdrawal, which could cause miscarriage, pregnant women are normally advised to take Subutex - exactly the same as Suboxone, but without Naloxone, instead.) Either way, at present, Buprenorphine is listed as a category C drug for use during pregnancy.
Avatar m tn First segment of this post is my Opiate History, and the Second segment is my Suboxone Story including my Question: ***Asking for Adivce/Help*** 1)    Started with Vicodin age of 18, @19 I pretty much was on Oxy once or Twice a week that's all I could afford. Continued on into the summer I was 20 and a co-worker had the same addiction making the habit increasingly easy to access. I never felt W/Ds during any of these Periods of Use until the end of that summer.
239164 tn?1207266607 I was assured by the people at the outpatient clinic I'm going to that they have heard about no problems from their patients discontinuing the Suboxone after 7 - 10 days. Of course, I now realize that the Suboxone withdrawal wouldn't start until about 3 days after the last dose, so by that time the people would not be there to tell them about it. Hmmmmm I'm afraid to take my 4 mg. dose this morning. I may wait until I get there and get an answer to these questions before I do.
Avatar f tn I've also read a NUMBER of posts where people are seeking a class action lawsuit against the manufacturer of suboxone...for tooth decay, their declaration that the withdrawal is easy (it's not) and many other claims about the drug. I've done some research as far as depression and suboxone and was actually considering doing a "rapid detox". However, this procedure is extremely dangerous and you wake up with extreme cravings for the drug.
Avatar f tn I've heard the same thing about Suboxone. There is no getting around the WD if you want to be clean. If I could have gone to rehab, I would in a minute. In my state there is little funding for mental health services and they've closed the only rehab where you don't have to pay; no detox service either. I know you want your fiance to be involved, but I think you have to focus on you. He can't save you; only you can save you.
300207 tn?1227226322 Ive been on Suboxone for a week and its going great! My doc gave me a script for 30 and I take 5 a day, this first script was just to try it. My insurance paid for it and my copay was 25 bucks, so Im thinkin GREAT!! He wrote me a script yesterday for the whole month and its for 150 pills. I go to the pharmacy and they tell me that my insurance will only pay for 30 a month ( thats ONE FREAKIN PILL A DAY!!!). The script is $550 bucks without insurance THATS INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!
372880 tn?1332883087 I was on suboxone for nearly 4 years - if you can do it, please don't take suboxone long term, you are correct, the withdrawals from suboxone are long and while the manufacturer and docs say that it is only a partial agonist and should not be as bad, the long half life makes the withdrawl much longer. Tapering is the only way. You can decrease by 4 mg from the larger dose. Decrease your dose each week. If 4mg is too much, go down by 2.
Avatar m tn So, you relapsed, and you are giving advice on Suboxone? Let me explain something to you about the length of time you should be on the drug and why.Some doctors may be in it for the money, but most of them are following a protocol they learned which teaches them about how opiates affect the brain and cause long term damage.Sometimes that damage is irreversible, but Suboxone helps you while you are healing from that damage, and makes it easier to recover.
Avatar m tn Day 24 of NO SUBOXONE. I jumped off at around 4 mg daily which is quite a high dose. At this point, after all the days of HELL I've been through, I don't think it would be a good idea to get back on subs after bring off of them for so long, as I'd be restarting the whole mess. I, like anyone else in this situation just really wants affirmation that I'm not alone in symptoms. The lingering anxiety, runs , stomach issues, nervousness, uncomfortable in my own skin. Tired during the day.
