What a great attitude! I've moved a few times in the last couple years and it has shown me how pointless stuff is. After this recent move we are broke, like you enough money to keep food in the cupboards, etc. We are perfectly happy, all anyone needs is the love of their family. You are making up fo...

Yeah it sucks! We have another thread about this. I think they are discontinuing it because their strip campaign was so effective that it's hardly being prescribed, therefore they aren't making a big enough profit off it anymore. When Subutex is prescribed most patients opt for the generic since it'...

Yes a baby can be born with minor withdrawl or none at all after 9 months in utero. If you read thru the birth stories here you will find many examples of a baby being born perfectly fine. So far I have only heard of 2 or 3 babies that were kept and treated with morphine and in every case the nurses...

I don't get it either. I didn't even know people abused it prior to coming here. I have used it on and off for pain and have never had any type of good feeling from it besides easing the pain a bit. I guess I don't have the liver enzyme?

Yes, you should be able to taper at a comfortable rate and your Dr should be open to adjusting accordingly. Sadly, that isn't always the case and there are bad sub Drs out there. My only idea is to have your husband write him a letter, explain how well he's done and how much this treatment has helpe...

Zyhydro

I just read an interesting article. Four companies are developing hydrocodone time release without apap. Essentially it will be just like oxycotin but will release hydrocodone instead of oxycodone. Of course this article was saying how dangerous this is and will create addicts. The other side to thi...

I just recently moved from Arizona and thought I would share a bit of info. Walgreens and CVS both offer a discount card for scripts that would knock the price down to about $100. I know the CVS card is free, I'm not sure about Walgreens. I always filled at CVS but tried Walmart because I was told i...

Hi Josh, Once you get below 4mg the half life starts decreasing and sub acts more like a full agonist. When getting low in your taper and your dose isn't holding you 24 hours, Dr. J recommends dosing twice per day. You could try 1mg am and 1mg pm or if you think you need more in the morning you coul...

I am not sure but from the reading I've done, it is just name brand Subutex that would be affected. The generics would continue to be made. If Subutex is pulled I think it's because R&B is not selling much of it per their add campaigns for Suboxone. I am on bup and hope it continues to be made, it s...

The high feeling will pass after you stabilize and then you will feel just normal. It is common to catch a buzz early on but it does subside. Yes tylenol and all otc pain meds are fine. Yes sub does cause a problem for treating acute pain. If you are having a plamned procedure there are steps that c...

Hi and welcome! I think you will find the transition rather easy. I was on oxy and at a much higher dose than you, I waited 24 hours and within 20 minutes started feeling great, normal, like my old self. Jimmy is right, the most important thing is to be in adequate withdrawl not so much a time frame...

Like Rule said, the best thing you can do is call your insurance and ask them. They should be helpful and can give you the specifics of your questions. I would make the call asap so you dont end up with a surprise when picking up your script.

Cmon, seriously? Most of the people here, pointing the finger at people who abuse Suboxone, once abused opioids themselves. Some people "doctor shopped", scamming extra painkillers and tarring all those who took their medications responsibly, as prescribed. Every time someone here took Oxy/Vicodin/...
