Re: Switched From Methadone To Suboxone

I assume you are prescribed Suboxone 'off label' for pain? The peripheral edema (swelling) may be from the Naloxone. You can either spit out the saliva when done to reduce its effect to the minimum or ask for generic plain buprenorphine. Dosing would be the same. Transition from Suboxone to Methado...
