 Post subject: Side effects
PostPosted: Sat Aug 19, 2017 4:04 am 
I started Suboxone two weeks ago, my pain is managed very well. I have been experiencing a few side effects (I think). I am unable to get a good nights sleep and when I finally do I have terrible sweats like I'm going through menopause again. Also having some headaches. Is this common?

 Post subject: Going back on your subs after opiate
PostPosted: Mon Aug 07, 2017 10:37 pm 
So in case this is helpful to anyone. I take subs by choice. Meaning i was not addicted to opiates when i started them but occasionally used. Although i was a heroin addict 10years ago. So i take about 2 mg a day but today i took 30 mg of morphine which of cours did nearly nothing. Not only that but it didnt replace the subs i suppose the subs stopped it from binding.
Nevertheless ...

 Post subject: How long after taking Suboxone does it show in urine
PostPosted: Fri Jul 14, 2017 2:59 pm 
Simple question, How long after taking my Suboxone will it show in a urine drug screen? I ask this because my last few visits my doctor has been telling me my levels were low which doesn't make sense as I take it daily. The only thing I can figure is that because I haven't dosed before my Appointment that day yet. I also have overactive bladder. I need to know when I should take it ...

 Post subject: Suboxone side effects (Day 3)
PostPosted: Thu Jul 13, 2017 11:10 pm 
Hi I recently switched over from a methadone maintenance program (7 years) to Suboxone. I was on a low dose of methadone 30mg for over a year before switching over. I started the suboxone on Monday, 8mg twice a day. No bad withdrawals, however every time I take the Suboxone for the first 30 min or more I get really bad tremors. It almost feels like a hit of speed. I tried only taking half ...

 Post subject: Odd UA results
PostPosted: Tue Jun 27, 2017 3:50 pm 
Hi everyone this is my first time posting here but I'm perplexed about a situation and not sure who to ask. It seems in my last UA my Naloxone amount was higher than the bup. Amount. I don't understand how this could happen but now my doc wants me to start doing randoms and sub counts. I'm compliant with my meds. Though some days I take 3 other days 1 per my doc depending on ...

PostPosted: Wed May 24, 2017 6:28 pm 
Hello. My husband is on methadone for pain, he has been taking a high dose. After being with the same pain doctor for over 10 years his pain doctor wants him to to go on suboxone. He assures him this will help his pain. He has severe pain, both knees need replacement, his back needs a fusion but he is not a good candidate for surgery. I am trying to find out if suboxone can ...

 Post subject: Slip and getting back to Sub
PostPosted: Wed May 10, 2017 12:06 pm 
Hi, I wasn't sure where to put this since there is no "what were you thinking" section. I'm really unhappy with myself right now, but I want to get back to recovery right away.

I have an important question and then I'll give a little backstory. My last Sub was 4mg about 36 hours ago. During that 36 hours I have taken 16 Percocet. How long do I need to wait after my last Percocet ...

PostPosted: Tue Apr 18, 2017 4:32 am 
There has been a bit of chat on other threads about tapering off sub as a precaution to the inevitable health issues that come with older age.
