Hello, I am a long time suboxone user and I have a big surgery coming up. I take 8Mg's a day for the last 8 years and as of yesterday I was just switched to the film. OK, I have Liver disease, Hepatitis C, traumatic arthritis, stomach ulcers and now unfortunately gum disease. I must have ALL my teeth extracted. 26 of them to be exact. My dentist/surgeon knows I'm on suboxone and I told my Dr. but I'm going to have them attempt to work together to come up with a pain management solution. Any suggestions? I'm an ex-Marine and can tolerate a great deal of pain but dental surgery scares the crap out of me. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
-C.C.

I just posted on another thread you replied to, but I'll give you the same info here. Go to the Links section of this site and check out a couple of articles that discuss treating acute pain in people on suboxone treatment. They are extremely helpful, not only for you, but for your dentist and doctor. Good luck!
