Suboxone opiate blocker

Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone opiate blocker


Avatar n tn one is a high-powered synthetic opiate; the other is a partial antagonist, or opiate blocker. This drug was tested and approved only for short-term use, and addicts who were placed on it for long-term maintenance similar to methadone, are now discovering the horrors of getting off the stuff. Look up the term PAWS - Post Acute-Withdrawal Syndrome, and see what awaits you after using suboxone for more than a few weeks.
Avatar f tn I do want to caution you that Suboxone in also an opiate. 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.
Avatar n tn I do want to caution you and him that Suboxone in also an opiate. Let me tell you about it. 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 Suboxone is an opiate and is extremely addictive. People find it just as difficult to taper and quit. One of the patients in our clinic, who we had to detox from Suboxone, was so addicted, that no matter how far down she titrated this drug she could not get off. At one point she was literally just licking the 1 mg strip, but she could not give it up. I find that most have the same problem with both of these drugs.
Avatar n tn Now I did forget to mention, if you take a percocet, and then take a suboxone to soon after, you will go into immediate w/d's, because the suboxone actually fights the other opiate in your system, and knocks it off of your receptors, but then the subxone does not attatch itself to the receptors either, and it is what they call precipiated withdrawl's. You can read about that on suboxone's site www.suboxone.
Avatar m tn i have already distanced myself from the persons i can get them so now i am trying to ween down and then use suboxone to quit. i am lucky to have never been arrested or losing my money or job. in fact the bad part is i seem to make more money when im high on pills. my sex drive is nonexistent and i am totally controlled by this drug. i did 5 yesterday which for me is a step in the right direction, have 3 left for today and plan on taking a 8mg subox in the am and see what happens.
Avatar f tn on it, and overdose is pretty much impossible because it had Narcon in it. (opiate blocker) and in order for the suboxone to work, your ganna need to wait about a good day into withdrawls from the oc, or it will not do anything, because beprenorphine is a longer lasting opiate in the receptors of the brain.
Avatar f tn it will not kiil pain, it is meant to get people off opiotes. Suboxone has a blocker in it ... so if u do pain killers while your taking suboxone the pain killers will be blocked out and you will not feel the pain killer i dont think your daughter should go on suboxone unless she wants to get off everything! sounds like she needs the pain killers!
480035 tn?1222369764 It makes sense that the Narcan is there to block a typical high from one's DOC. And I guess also from the opiate component in the suboxone. Just doesn't work that way for me, that's all. Makes it a little bit harder than it might be. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn and i have done suboxone a about 4 hrs after doing a doner or an oxy and many other things suboxone is an opiate blocker but if the opiate is already in your system it obviously cant block it and it can make you sick
Avatar n tn They can be used to ease it but tapering off or cold turkey is the only way i believe, theres no just moving onto some other drug to help..Its just another opiate.. I would say try suboxone for a few days to get the tolerance down and taper more opiates, even though suboxone is an opiate, it does have the blocker in it too so..Tell her to take it one day at a time and get off all pills in general ASAP!! GOODLUCK!!!
351846 tn?1273619144 Suboxone contains two active is buprenorphine it is an opiate.....naloxone is an opiate blocker. U take it under the tongue and let it dissolve.......should not shoot or snort it........buprenorphine attaches itself to the opiate receptors in our brain to help block pain......
Avatar n tn suboxone is not an opiate. it is the opposite. it is bupenephrine which is an opiate blocker. methadone is opiate based the 2 are not the same. if you want off break it down. dont quit ct. i would try to skip the night dose and see how you feel in the morning. If you are taking 6mg of suboxone 2/day 1 am and 1 pm dose??? take the am dose but see if you can either skip the pm or break it down to 3mg. I am not trying to tell you exactly what to do but this is what I would do...
461368 tn?1206520357 If you stay on the methodone the pills won't do you any good if your wanting to feel that euphoric feeling. Methodone is an opiate blocker. It is certainly your choice on how to detox,but speaking from experience methodone isn't the best route to take. You should really look into suboxone . The withdrawl from methodone is horrible and long lasting.My advice to you is to talk to your doctor about the suboxone.
Avatar m tn I came off 80mgs of methadone, tapered down to 10mg then used suboxone for 4 days before jumping off. Suboxone is a partial opiate so it helps with the withdrawals at first, but then you are still faced with coming off the subs.I was on them for just a few days (also tapered my dose by 1/4 each day) so I didn't really get a major habit on them. I feel I just delayed the withdrawals. The tapering made it a bit easier than jumping off at 80mgs but it was still no walk in the park.
1845558 tn?1318954203 Now, Suboxone as you are telling me is not for your pain, since it does not help it. It is however still an opiate, whether you like it or not. 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 m tn Suboxone contains nanoxalone, (narcon) an opiate blocker which will throw your body into instant wd. You must be in at least 24hr wd to start suboxone. It is only then that it will take away your wd symptoms, at such a high dose, you may require 16mg of suboxone for your first 2-3 days. Suboxone contains an extremely powerful opioid called Subutec, and it not intended to go back and forth.
5417109 tn?1367641699 You shouldn't have any problem transitioning if your dose is the same. Subutex is just the buprenorphine, which is the opiate, Suboxone is buprenorphine plus the nalaxone, which is the opiate blocker. There are NO other differences. To be honest, the reason Sub blocks other opiates has MUCH more to do with the way Sub fills the opiate receptors, not the naloxone.
Avatar m tn Sub is an opiate-blocker, and taking another opiate while sub is still in your system will put you into wds, but if you wait the 36 hours after your last sub dose, you should be fine. Not to sound stupid - but are you sure there's no other way to handle the pain? You're playing russian roulette by going back on the pain meds, and most likely you'll end up right back where you started. If you functioned fine on them for 2 years, why did you end up taking the sub?
Avatar n tn You could always post a new question if you'd like. You will not get sick if you take a methadone. Suboxone is an opiate blocker so you likely won't feel any of the effects of the methadone, but it will not make you sick. Suboxone has a long half life, about 36-72 hours, so you may not feel the full effects of the methadone until a couple days after your sub dose. You didn't mention why you were going from sub to methadone?
Avatar m tn You can get hooked on Suboxone/Subutex because it is an opiate itself. It isn't a rough wd, I've done it from suboxone once, and it was like 2-4 weeks of misery but not rapid or severe like heroin. ALSO: To the original poster: If you are taking opiates because you can't get pot/weed, then I suggest relocating to a state where medical marijuana is LEGAL. It is legal where I live (CALIFORNIA) and I have a script.
1181063 tn?1264714890 Subutex is pure buprenorphine (opiate). Suboxone is buprenorphine (opiate) PLUS naloxone (opiate blocker). Its a mix of both. They use the naloxone to deter people from abusing buprenorphine. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn It contains both a potent synthetic opiate (narcotic) and partial opiate blocker. It's intended use is to prevent withdrawal symptoms in anyone who is dependent on narcotics, be it from a necessary therapeutic use for pain, or addiction and abuse. Because of the partial opiate blocker, it is a bad medication for chronic pain patients (in my opinion anyway). If you have a pain crisis and need more meds, they won't work and you may even go into withdrawal.
Avatar n tn Suboxone has an opiate antagonist in it, so you will not get any effect or benefit from taking the ultram.. I know Ultram is not an opiate but it does block the same opiate receptors in the brain as a real opiate would so if you take the Suboxone then it will have already blocked the recptors in the brain so it will just kick the ultram out..
Avatar f tn Why would a Dr refuse to prescribe me subtex over suboxone for pain management if I have never admitted or reported or been caught as an opiate addict?
Avatar m tn i am allergic to naloxone (the opiate blocker in suboxone). i dont wanna get on methadone cuz the addiction gets serious. is there any thing like suboxone with the naloxone in it?
Avatar n tn You could physically take the T3 - it won't make you sick. But sub is an opiate blocker so the T3's pain relieving effects would be low, if not nonexistant. If you do take them, you'd have to push back your sub dose cuz taking the sub while the T3 is still circulating in your system would make you sick. Why do you want to take painkillers while on the sub? If you have pain maybe you should talk to your doctor.
Avatar f tn Hey again, thank you both for your input. I completely agree with what you say about going on suboxone for a yr or so/ or using suboxone or methadone as a last resort. I've actually attempted both those options...7yrs ago I tried remaining abstinent from all medications but wasn't successful. Methadone was helpful for a yr or so but I was drinking and abusing Xanax too.
445698 tn?1208622107 Hey there everyone, I just had a question about the drugs Suboxone and Methadone. My question is which one has the mose opiate like affects ( gets you high like other opiates)? My doctor is putting me on one or the other next week, and I want to be on one that is gonna work, but I also want the one thats not going to get me high like heroin or Morphine does. Any info on the comparison of these drugs would be helpful...
Avatar f tn As far as I know suboxone has an opiate blocker - folks is that right? That's what I remember from when my hubby was in detox. I'm thinking that's right - and if so - that would mean that the opiates in vicodin would not be able to have their affect because of the blocker. So you'd be wasting your money and your liver to be taking the V if that is the case. Maybe look up info about suboxone online and see if that's correct. If you're on suboxone its becuase you want out right?
