Thank you so very much, sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you. I am so overwhelmed by all of the disasters, the various hurricanes, the earthquakes, the fires in California, now I see Montana has been burning, they really need help. I worry for our future. Sorry I don't mean to be a downer, quite the contrary.
Again thank you all for your unwavering support, D

Hi, I am hoping someone can advise. I think I remember someone saying that if my husband could be inducted on to Subutex it would be less traumatic. Then he could later switch to Suboxone?
Should I ask this as a new question? I'm going to back to re read, I appreciate anyone who can help. He was just reduced 20 mg this month and it is awful for him.
Thank you

Hi Dee! I have never heard that starting out on buprenorphine only is any different than starting out with the buprenorphine/naloxone combination. I don't recall seeing it suggested on this forum, but I could have missed it. I hope that others chime in with their thoughts.

Amy

Induction makes no difference. Treatment clinics (where you dose daily at the facility) will use plain buprenorphine. There is no difference when inducting whether Suboxone or plain is used. The Naloxone in the Suboxone will not cause precipitated withdrawal if that is what you are fearing.

I have been on it for about a little over a year and nothing has helped more for my back pain. Much better than pain killers and no ups and downs
