Very surprised to me and everyone else in our clinic we are the largest clinic in the united states. I'm proud to have so much support open 4 days a week full groups. The thing we all hate the help is here but people get there scripts and screw. There's a lot more to it besides taking suboxone you need support from others. One more thing I would like to add someone in the group was heard by multiple people saying loud and clear on the phone saying ohhhh the doctors are fucking with me so I have to get ten dollars a piece this week. Pretty messed up!!!!

It depends on what for. for pain like the buprenex patches can be up to 48 or higher. They do make the 12mg/3mg strip but the only ones given out are the 2/.5 and 8/2.

I know someone who gets them for pain and they take like 56 in 1 day

I was under the impression that more than 24MG per day was a waste due to the ceiling effect. Seems to me there would be a CHEAPER way to help deal with the pain then a $2000 a month sub script.

Actually, even doses of 12-16mg are well above the ceiling level.

I understand that there could be some benefit in taking up to 24mg for an addict new in recovery, but as far as actually helping physically...it's not. Once your receptors are covered, they are covered, the extra is not doing any good. It's really hard to make people understand this, and I wish more doctors "got it", but taking these large doses is only helping on a mental level. It's just reinforcing the need we addicts have to dose with something, anything, in large amounts. You know how we are, the more the better! When people hear of friends who take large amounts, they think anything less is not enough! It's just not true.

If you haven't read this thread, I would HIGHLY recommend it!

the-ceiling-t6168.html

It's a great explanation of the ceiling effect of buprenorphine.
