Sublocade - A New Kind Of Suboxone (Page 4)

Updated
RAWDOG Says:

So there's a new kind of SUBOXONE out and it's called SUBLOCADE. It's a once a month injection done by a medical professional that lasts ALL month. So no more having to take it sublingually (under the tongue) daily anymore. I just found out about this last week and was wanting anyone's input about it. I don't know how I feel about it. What if it doesn't work ALL month and on week 3 you start feeling like s***? Can you go back to the doctor and get another shot or will they just give you a couple sublingual suboxone to make it through till the next week? I guess it's a pretty big dissolvable thing that slowly releases about 2mg a day into your bloodstream. Once again, I'm not sure how i feel about that. What if something happens and it ALL gets released at once? I'm sure that's bound to happen once every so often. Do please write back letting me know how you guys feel about this, or if you have any new info that I'm leaving out. Thank you.

It burns for a few seconds.. think it is a liquid being forced in between fat that quickly hardens.. so it burns a few seconds and the area is tender after to touch (but you shouldn't be touching it anyway!) It's less painful than a tattoo... and its literally super quick! Worth the 15 seconds of pain each month for a chance at life long sobriety! :)

You have to be on at least 8mg daily to qualify for the shot... this could change over time because we are always learning in medicine, but currently you have to be on 8-24mg of suboxone daily for the shot. Since it comes in 300mg and 100mg doses, (after the first 2 months you get 100mg) in the studies that was what showed to keep people at the therapeutic level all month. My doctor says after a few months he will start injecting less and/or space the shots out to every 5 or 6 weeks. More research and time is needed for the med company to change their dosing guidelines, but the doctors can do things based on their experience with what works in the mean time.

Hey. I know this response was from a while back, but I am experiencing the exact same side effects. Have you managed to overcome them? I was thinking it may be due to a naloxone allergy and was going to ask my doc to switch me to bup only.

There were no withdrawals after 4 days, it was your mental state. During Subs, everyday is a habitual and continuance treat in our lives. It is a crutch and becomes a lifeline to our existence. Think back, every waking second of each day revolves around these damn films. The appointment day is like Christmas Day each month. Once we you have the script then the fun begins. Time to hold your breathe at the Pharmacy and pray they have them in. Pray they don’t tell you it is too early to refill. Your mind starts to go in panic mode driving to the Pharmacy. You know that every appointment day, you are out. You have to get it filled. You start preparing excuses to why you need this filled today and I’m not taking no for an answer. You start getting pissed. Who in the hell does a Pharmacist think he/she is to override my Dr’s orders! I did that crap for 10 years of my life until I said to myself,, This is recovery!?

Subs do little to change the previous lifestyle we wanted to escape.

The toughest part of Sublocade is the fun above that I mentioned is all over.

Sublocade is not a patch. It is an injection that gels up on contact with your body fluids. Then the gel slowly wats away at so many nano grams per second.

Re: Rawdog (# 20) Expand Referenced Message

Each Injection is $1800…insurance covers what they cover and then there is a copay assistance program through sublocade manufacturer for up to $800 per injection after insurance. You do not get copay assistance if you are on any government or state assistance program. Must be private health insurance to get the copay. Government assistance most likely will cover the whole thing. When big pharma was sued for billions and lost those billions of dollars should be going in to getting these shots for people!!!!!
