suboxone & phentermine

Does anyone knows if taking Phentermine (diet pill) and Suboxone is harmful in anyway? ## I'm not finding any contraindications listed that states they cannot be used together. However, this site is not medical professionals, so you should check with your doctor or pharmacist to be on the safe side. Is your doctor aware that you are taking both? ## No problem taking the two together. I have been on Suboxone for two years, and my doctor just started me on Phentermine. Also, I checked with the pharmacist before filling. If you have heart trouble or very high blood pressure, you should be monitored however. ## I know this question is old, but for anyone who may be looking for the answer. Yes you can take suboxone & phentermine together. Ive gained 45lbs on the suboxone & I have...

round orange suboxone not fully off methadone BIG MISTAKE!!!

I have been on methadone for approx 3 months. I'm on 55mgs. I recently heard that suboxone was a much better way of life as an individual coming off opiates (suboxone gives more energy, more focused, kills cravings even when leaving your system) so I, like an idiot, bought 4 of these generic suboxone orange pills, thinking I could convert myself. The night I bought the pills I had taken my dose of methadone around 9am. I took half an orange pill, let it dissolve under my tongue around 9pm. I had a slight stomach ache then fell asleep. The next day I figured the methadone was fully out of my body & I took a whole pill and a half. By 9:30 I broke out in cold sweats. I tried sitting at my desk and began feeling terrible leg and joint pains. I was scheduled for work that day and had...

Suboxone chat room

I have now been on suboxone for a year, I got on it when I found out I was pregnant last January 2013 and I had my beautiful healthy daughter in August 2013 I used to be on subutex during my pregnancy but once I had my daughter I was switched to suboxone. I am on 2 1/2 strips a day and my doctor has been wanting to lower my dose however I have so much going on that I am really nervous to do so. I have lately been dealing with my daughter on my own her father just didn't show me the respect I deserved and he wasn't willing to work to support our daughter so we separated and now I am left on my own with all the finances out daughter and looking for employment which this all just recently happened since the last time I saw my doctor on top of that my daughter has medical issues due...

How long after you stop Suboxone do you have withdrawal symptoms?

My 63y/o mother survived chemo and radiation for throat cancer but was unable to stop the morphine 15mg twice a day without horrible withdrawal symptoms. Her MD put her on Suboxone 8mg/2mg once a day in June. She even took half the strip on most days and the doctor was very pleased and anticipated that she would be able to stop altogether in November. She unfortunately had a stroke 14 days ago and has been in the hospital. The first 7 days she was confused from the stroke but now she is weak and forgetful but is no longer disoriented. She told me tonight that she thought she needed her Suboxone. She said she thought she was going thru withdrawal. I was floored. She is not having any outward signs of withdrawal: no back/stomach pain, no nausea/vomiting, no sweating or tremors. Isn't ...

Louisiana Expansion in Suboxone Clinics who accept Medicaid

For those of you who have been seeking a Suboxone program in Southwest Louisiana , I have some good news to share for the ones who aren't aware of the expansion approved by our state. There are now more options & many more physicians & also Nurse Practioners who are licensed to prescribe Suboxone and they also accept Louisiana Medicaid. Many of them are also accepting new patients in the Alexandria/Pineville area, also the Lake Charles area which is in Calcasieu Parish and in the Lafayette, La area, as well. ## Ho can I find these Doctors ? I live close to BR and I have been driving to Jefferson Parish. I am disabled and between the gas and visit I end up paying almost 200.00 plus each month. I am sure that it will be cheaper being on SSI & SSI. I have never used any ill...

Round orange 970 suboxone

My pharmacy recently switched to a round orange Suboxone with the numbers 970 on it and it burns my mouth pretty bad and doesn't seem to be as effective as my old ones. Has anyone else had this problem? Why does it burn? ## Hello OhioKing, Sorry to hear that you are having so much trouble with your medication. I was taking a look into it and I've read a couple of other users that said they had a similar experience. It seems that most of these stories boiled down to either an allergic reaction or that their doctor had them taking too many dosages a day and that in the end the doctor had them go from 4x a day to 2x a day. Either way I suggest that you consult your doctor immediately in case it turns out to be an allergic reaction to the medication. Burning of the mouth is definite...

Suboxone and Valium

I have been on valium for approximately 12 years for severe anxiety and because of a severe back problems i was also put on percocet for years. Someone told me about suboxone. They said suboxone will help with the pain. So i went to a sub doc and told him i was on valium. He did not give me a U/A till months later. Doc said you are on a benzo. l said is that the valiums? He said yes. I said i told you i was on valium. He said you have to go off them. I was told if i go off my valiums i could have a seizure. I have been off the valium for a week. I am shaking and can't sleep. I feel sick. I was doing great with suboxone and valium. Now i am just sick. Please, someone help me. ## Suboxone is not going to help pain. Suboxone is another addiction. Go to your doctor and tell him/her that...

Maximum dose of Suboxone/Subutex & chronic pain

What is the maximum dose of suboxone or subutex when you have severe pain? ## What is the maximum daily dose of subutex? I'm taking it to wean off of opiate pain killers but may need to stay on it for chronic pain. My doctor has me taking 2mg up to 6 times a day, but it feels like too much and I feel sick at 6 mg. I can't imagine taking more. Any answers would be helpful... thanks. ## If u have true clinical pain suboxone will not work it is for opiate detox only. It is an opiate blocker which will in turn allow your brain to make its own dopamine. ## feelinbettergoinbroke is wrong, suboxone is used for the treatment of chronic pain. Although, I think the reason you are getting sick is because your doctor has you taking 2mg up to 6 times a day. That in itself is causing you to b...

Suboxone and NyQuil

I have had a couple of bad colds and the flu over the last 6 months. I took NyQuil b cause it's a multi symptom cold and flu reliever. What a surprise when I took it with the suboxone, it helped me better with the pain I expierence. I suffer from multiple medical problems and had many surgeries. Now, I'm not saying 2 go and do this 4 nothing, but, it has really helped me. ( maybe, b cause of the liquid acetaminophen in it. Has anyone else done this or noticed it? ## To the OP and anyone reading this thread - it is technically not safe to take suboxone with nyquil because the buprenorphine interacts with multiple ingredients found in it. You may experience increased dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, or worse yet, a rare but serious condition called serotonin syndrome [1]. Definit...

how long will suboxone keep their potentsy if they are expired

I have sublingual strips that have been expired for about a month now are they still good? ## They should be fine, especially if they are still sealed in the package. ## @Adrian, Midiman is right... they should be fine since the expiration date wasn't too long ago. Harvard Medical School did a study stating that many medications like this can actually retain their potency for up to 10 to 15 years beyond their expiration date. The shelf life of Suboxone may be listed as 3 years, but I think it's been proven to retain its potency much longer under proper storage conditions. I hope this helps! ## I take 8 mg suboxone and I only take a small piece of it and then put the rest back in the package. As long as it stays sealed and in a dry place they dont lose alot of their potency. ## I...

Orange round pill with an 415 suboxone?

How soon after your last dose of percocet can you take this? I want to stop taking them. ## You have to be in full withdrawal, before taking Suboxone, otherwise it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals, unless your doctor has instructed you otherwise. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Today is april 8th and all i want to know is will i go into full w/d even though i took opiates april 6th? I dont want to take this suboxone pill if it will make me more sick. ## I'd wait at least 12 hrs b4 taking one depending on how many mg ...

Alcohol and suboxone

Hi everyone! My friend is on suboxone and once in a while she has a couple. (2) glasses of wine. Is this going to harm her? I know you're not supposed to drink alcohol while on suboxone and I told her that. But, she has been doing it for awhile. She takes her suboxone in the early morning and has wine in the afternoon. Besides, wouldn't alcohol come up in lab work? Then again, she won't drink wine a week before her Dr. Appt. What do you people think about this? ## Bella, I asked my sub dr. one time about this. He said if I was to have a glass of wine with supper or a beer after work, it's not gonna mess me up. If your friend's an alcoholic that would be another matter. You're really not suppose to drink when taking suboxone. It says so in the warning. It says the...

What should white suboxone 155 taste like?

I have what i was told was suboxone, the white ones with 155 on it which i have never taken before, but i looked it up and they do exist. But i see no marks or numbers at all. And they taste like lemon. Did i get screwed? ## No you didnt get screwed. That is a generic white taste lemony. ## Really cause i took 4 of the quarters which i don't usually take that much And did nothing to me. Im wondering if they were the 2 mg ones instead of the 8mg like i was told then ## What does the generic 155 suboxone taste like? Anybody tried them before? ## @Sara, Annie (post #1) already mentioned that the taste of these is lemony. However, from what I've been reading in some of the other discussion threads on here, there are people who find that the generic suboxone (w/ 155 on one ...

Suboxone Drug Test hospital employment

I am applying for a job at a large hospital and will undergo a drug test prior to employment (and during). I take suboxone and it has helped me a lot although I don't have a valid prescription for it. I have been told that suboxone testing is very expensive and almost if not completely a scam because a doctor I know sent a suboxone specific drug test to PHARMA while the patient wasn't on suboxone and the results said suboxone was in the persons system and then charged the Doctor something like $350 dollars. Afterward the doctor says he thinks he is getting screwed Over by the testing company because they know he is prescribing them to a patient therefore it should be in their system, and they don't actually test for it but charge the doctor. Anyway my real question is about ...

Generic Suboxone which is better cvs or walgreens

who has been suboxone CVS or walgreens.I know thwy are generic but which is better of the two ## You're really asking a subjective question, because a generic that works well for one person may not work that well for you and vice-versa. What you really need to discover is which one works best for you. Learn more Suboxone details here. Have you had problems with any that you've tried? ## Walgreens or CVS has the exact same thing when it comes to suboxen, not sure what dose you are on but an 8mg suboxen strip will have 6mg of buprenorphine and 2mg of naloxone. ## The difference between the two.... Walgreens has the orange generics and cvs has the white generics. I had both and imo, they're exactly the same. But if I had to choose, I would go with walgreens only bc in my head I...

Suboxone, Adderall and Klonopin

I am very pleased to say that I take all three of these great medications. The suboxone is the most important because it keeps me from craving other drugs which I used to abuse. I take 12mg a day. The Adderall XR 30mg is helpful with ADHD and staying alert. It keeps me going all day. And finally, last but definitely not least is the klonopin 1.5mg a day. Nothing else has touched my anxiety or made me feel so comfortable around people. Each med is important, and I would highly recommend this mix for anyone with anxiety, ADHD, and substance abuse disorder. Of course, they’re all controlled substances so you have to control yourself and be responsible, especially with a history of substance abuse. Other than that, just find a good doctor who cares and take them as prescribed. If you ...
