HAVING TEETH PULLED ON SUBOXONE

I need some help, I have to have a tooth pulled tomorrow that broke off yesterday. I am taking suboxone 8/2 once a day. My Dr. said I could take the pain meds the dentist will give me if the pain gets unbearable if I need to. My question is will the hydrocodone's pain killing properties still work w...

Re: Sublocade woes. Anyone else experiencing these issues?

I have been on subs for over a month now and have been having the bad stomach issues too. It feels like the subs put my digestive system in very slow motion. I have found that drinking a lot of clear liquids and eating at least one (granny smiths) apple a day has made it a lot better. I was taking s...

Re: HELP WITH SIDE EFFECT PLEASE!!!!!

Sometimes my medicine makes me sleepy too. The times that I notice it more than usual is when I’m relaxed, doesn’t matter if it’s in the middle of the day and there’s even times I’ll be feeling totally good and sit down for a min and I start falling asleep within just a couple minutes! What works f...

Re: HELP WITH SIDE EFFECT PLEASE!!!!!

There are a couple things you could try. First, you could take your dose an hour before bedtime. Then the tiredness would not bother you at all. If you feel like you are taking too much for your system, you could try (after hopefully talking to your doctor) to drop by a mg or 2. You need to shoot f...

Re: Got it figured out!!!!!

Things like this make me so mad about the generic brand medication. I have took meds before that don't seem to work as well as the name brand but insurance will only pay for the cheap ones. Its scary when it comes to your health and mistakes are made like that.

Re: Did my induction today!!!

Thank you all for the help. I am on day 5 and the nausea is better. The suboxone does work very well and I am very pleased with myself for doing this. Still a little tired after I take it but I guess it will get better also. It is a great thing for those of us that are tired of living the addict life.

Re: No more masturbation or sex drive

Jess, I am 40 right now and have an amazing girlfriend and very understanding. I just started subs but had a very low sex drive the last couple years from the opioids I was using every day so I totally understand the not feeling the moment.

Re: Did my induction today!!!

Welcome to the talkzone, Tracker17. It's great to have you! To answer your question about the nausea you get an hour after you take your medicine, yes. It's common. I used to get nauseous after I took mine, but I got used to it after a while. I'm sure you will too. In my opinion, it's the naloxone ...
