Re: I'm a pharmacist wanting to understand this issue

I can tell you why I am picky. I have an allergic reaction to citric acid which seem to be in all the orange colored films or tablets. My first prescription was for a generic brand that only cost $10 copay. My mouth broke out so bad I could hardly talk. Since then I have been very careful about what...

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECT

Hello, I have been taking buprenorphine is several different forms over the past 6-7 years. All forms with the exception of Zubsolv cause tiny sore spots to appear on my tongue. I believe it is the orange flavoring in the medication. I get the same effect from eating too many tomatoes or strawberrie...

Internal temperature messed up

Does anyone else get hot flashes/sweats intermittently from their suboxone? I am in my fourth week of treatment now and sometimes I feel so hot and start sweating, it lasts for a while, then I am back to normal.
Thank you

How long do opiates stay in hair

Hi
Because I have severe shy bladder syndrome and it is impossible for me to pee on demand, especially under pressure, I asked my company to do the hair check instead of urinalysis to test for drugs. I would like to know how long the residual stays in hair.
Thank you

Which side of the suboxone strip is the medication on?

Hi,
I was wanting to know which side, the rough side or the smooth side, of the suboxone strip the medication was on so I can know which side to place in contact with the surface of my mouth.
Thank you

Re: NEW GENERIC STRIPS

Jacksh, how is the new prescription? I cringed when I read your post about the yellow box. Just yesterday I got 5, just to see how I do, seeing as anything other than brand doesn't work for me. And it's the yellow one. I tried to put this out of my head, we'll see how it goes. I switched back to th...

Re: NEW GENERIC STRIPS

I had a different experience with the yellow box generic version. After my first dose I developed nasty sores under my tongue and on my tongue. Very painful and took several days to go away. Next time I requested the brand name and no problem. So I guess I am allergic to something in them. And befor...

Re: Change coming to Walmart

Recently my Walmart pharmacist told me that because I get two controlled substances filled on my Rx list and I have all but the Suboxone filled at Walgreens (already had a degrading experience there filling Sub), I would have to move all of my prescriptions to Walmart. Has anyone heard of this polic...

Re: NEW GENERIC STRIPS

Hi, I just got back from my doctor and he told me one generic is good but the yellow box one was terrible. Guess which one I got at the pharmacy. Maybe that's why I've still been having wd symptoms after over a week of taking 16MG daily. So today I asked for brand name only. More expensive but I don...

Re: Suboxone causes gastroparesis(?)

Hi, I've been on this site before and am coming back as I, again, got sick of the opiate abuse and am in a suboxone treatment program now. I have been addicted to opiates for over 14 years, how time flies, and used just about every form since getting addicted to pain meds for long term chronic pain....

Going from poppy seed tea to suboxone

Hi, Has anyone used suboxone treatment who has been addicted to poppy seed tea? My sub doctor had never heard of it so I had printed out scientific studies quantifying morphine and codeine content found in poppy seed tea. It has a very long half life and I am now at around 48 hours from my last dose...
