Get more Suboxone: There is really only one thing for your friend to do now...That is to get in quickly to see his physician and tell him what happened, and to get a new presciption for suboxone. It is to be expected that suboxone patients will mess up or have issues with treatment, so the physician should not be surprised. Your friend is alive - keeping him on suboxone is essential to avoid relapse to old ways! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If we only knew...: That's the "holy grail!" i believe if we knew this answer, there would be much less drug abuse in the world. Unfortunately, there is no magic formula or medication (or vitamin or herb) that really helps. Anyone who tells you differently is almost certainly trying to sell you something. However, that said, keep in mind we are all different. Some things work and others don't for some people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What's the length of physical withdrawal symptoms from heroin, and which is worse-heroin, suboxone, of methadone-in terms of withdrawal duration and intensity?
There is no 1 answer: because there is enormous variability between people and all of these opioids (and others). However, in general heroin and other short-acting drugs produce a 5-10 day acute withdrawal, usually worst at 24-72 hours and is VERY severe&then improves, but a post-acute withdrawal which is milder but can last months. Buprenorphine is milder than methadone;both peak at 72 hours but can last many weeks. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am having trouble quitting oxycodone/suboxone. How long are these withdrawal symptoms supposed to last?
Quiting Opiates: Suboxone is used to help with addiction to opiates like oxycodone. Maybe you need to get yourself on a maintenance dose of suboxone which you can then slowly taper off over time. In my experience, patients often will need to stay on suboxone for about half the amount of time they abused opiates. So, if a person took oxycodone for 4-5 years, they may need the suboxone for a couple of years. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Tramadol! Becareful : Use of tramadol is not recommended in those with history of substance dependency. Many overlook this point. Suboxone is also an opiate and more potent than tramadol. Its best to start low and taper fast when detoxing from tramadol by using suboxone. Every situation is unique and these are generalizations. Support groups and consultation with an addiction specialist is advised. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Caffeine withdrawal: I recommend that people who are using excessive caffeine (whether coffee, tea or cola or other soft drinks) cut back by about 25% of the dose every 3-4 days until they get down to 1-2 servings per day, which is generally safe. If you are drinking sugared pepsi, there is also the sugar issue to deal with, so use of diet drinks temporarily may help. If 8 drinks/day, go down 2 drinks every 3-4 days. ...Read more
Cutting: Not insofar as I know. I will say that I have suggested to patients who cut that, when they begin to decrease their instances of cutting, to replace those instances with something positive. Reworded, if you're going to take something bad out of your life, be mindful in replacing it with something good. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
