Hi and welcome! It sounds like you're dose could be too high. I also take sub for pain and take 8mg in the am and then 4mg around lunch and if I am having a bad pain day will take another 4mg late afternoon. If it were me I would try dosing less and see if it helps with your symptoms. When using sub...

I am so glad your daughter is improving! Like you I couldn't sleep at all, how I went two weeks without sleep is beyond me but I think we go into super parent mode or something. It is so devastating to have to leave your helpless baby. Once I was able to feed my girls they began improving rapidly, l...

I forgot to say, I cried every time I saw them. How could we not? Seeing our tiny, precious angels this way would break any parent's heart. Let it out, I always felt just a tiny bit better afterwards. The thing that got me thru was knowing that they were going to be ok. Your daughter will too but un...

I'm sorry your going thru this, it is heart breaking to see your baby in the nicu. My twins both had a pneumothorax. Ava's was fixed with a needle aspiration but Adelyn had to have a chest tube. It was horrible to watch her in pain and not be able to hold her and comfort her. I hope your daughter do...

Congrats! I had 3 c-sections and everything was fine. If you are worried about her bleeding like last time then a c-section is a good thing. If she starts to bleed out again they already have her open and can stop it quickly. I know it's easier said than done but try not worry and enjoy this amazing...

I didn't have a period for a year and a half after getting off the depo shot. I was told I would have issues conceiving but after having my period induced I got pregnant the next month and now have 4 beautiful children. So don't worry, you'll get straightened out.

It could be because of the depo shot, it can mess up your cycle. I was on the shot for bc and decided to switch back to the pills. I stopped the shot and waited for my period to return but it never did. My Dr told me it is a common issue and gave me some meds to induce a period and my cycle returned...

I'm sorry your having difficulties johnboy. I know it's scary but we will get this figured out. First, you said you have 7 8mg strips left. If it were me I would drop down to at least 8mg a day (more if you are ok). You may not feel great but it shouldn't be too bad. This will by you some time. Seco...

You did a great job! I know it couldn't have been easy to tell your ob the truth but you sucked it up and put your baby first. You are going to be a great mom, you already are! Don't worry about taking Suboxone until your appointment. The main reason for the switch is to not expose the baby to anymo...

Hi Auto, I just flew across country in Dec and only had a carry on bag. Sub is absolutely fine to have with you just as any prescribed medication is. I do think it would be a good idea to bring them in the prescribed box just in case. I would also put them in an easily accessible spot just cause you...

Hi and welcome! I am not a Dr but my guess would be you were put on too high if a dose of sub. Depending on how much norco you were taking, 4mg could be too much. Sub is a very strong medication, buprenorphine (active ingredient in sub) is used for pain in doses of .2mg. Did your Dr taper you off th...

I'm glad your feeling better! If it was me I would use the Sub Doc finder and call all the Drs as far as you're willing to drive and make an appointment with one that can see you the quickest. That way if your pcp doesn't refer you or the Dr he refers you too has a waiting list you will have a back ...

The ER is legally aloud to prescribe you 3 days of sub but I am pretty sure that is only if you were legally being prescribed Sub by a Dr. Even having a script it may be hard to find an ER that would prescribe it because not many are aware they legally can. Your best bet is to do what Romeo suggeste...
