I posted this in one of Ambers threads but wanted to put it out in the open since pain while on subs is some scary stuff for us. I'll keep it short.
I got dentures along with 13 extractions with 3 of them being very difficult and causing a lot of trauma to my poor jaw. My dose, post-dentures was 4mg/day. My Sub doc stepped in and wrote me a rx for 10 x 8mg Bubrenex tabs. I took one of these about every 6 hours and then less and less over about a 5 day period. The first few days after the extractions I took the bupe along with 1200mg of motrin and 2mg tizanadine and ice packs. I had little to no pain through the wole thing. I resumed my normal dose and although I started a taper shortly after I didnt notice an negative effects from taking the high dose of bupe.

I can honestly say this worked for me, as well.
having two 'sets' of 9 and then 11 molars pulled (some chipped) out,, I upped my dose of suboxone, to 24mg for a week or so each time, then back down to 12.

I'd say a cocktail of motrin (800mg) and tylenol (1000mg) every four hours helped tremendously, as well.

hopefully we can help some others, birdie :wink:

What's Bubrenex, though? Never heard of that trade name...I'm assuming we're talking USA? Buprenex is, of course, injectable amps of buprenorphine hydrocloride, but does not come anywhere near 8mg's...Are we talking about Suboxone or just Buprenorphine hydrocloride (generic Subutex) 8mg? Just for clarification...

Bird-

Buprenex is indeed straight buprenorphine hydrochloride, but it isn't available in pill form and isn’t available in 8mg dosages; That particular formulation is available in microgram dosages and is only available as an injectable preparation for the treatment of mild-to moderate pain, mostly in a hospital setting and post-op. Are you talking about Subutex or the generic equivalent, which is simply called Buprenorphine Hydrochloride? You've got me really curious, my friend! This could be all wrong if you are not in the USA...I'm not too familiar with trade names in other countries except Temegisic (microgram sublingual dosage of buprenorphine hcl indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe pain.) Suboxone, Subutex and subsequently the generic equivalent of Subutex, which is Buprenorphine hcl, is also available outside of the USA, obviously...Depending on the country...Just looking for clarification, yet…I’m not attempting to break balls over any of this and I hope I don’t come across as wanting to do so…
