Suboxone suddenly not working. I've been on it over a year & it's always worked fine. Now randomly just doesn't work. Been a few days like this?
?expired?underdosed?: Majority of opiate users will eventually develop tolerance; a higher dose is needed to obtain the desired effect. This may be seen with sub as its an opiate, but quite rare due to its dual property. It's important to distinguish between euphoric effects vs withdrawal symptom control when one feel sub is no longer working. Metabolism alteration from new meds is considered as another possibility. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Was taking Suboxone for about a year. I've been clean for about 2 months but the thought is always there. Does the feelings to use again ever go away?

The good news is that you've done the hardest part - it will never be stronger than you've been. That's a good reason to stay strong. There has not been a more successful program than the 12-step approach, so you might try to find a meeting that you like. Best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have been on Suboxone tx for over a year, i feel like im always going to need it. Do all doctors think you should come off at some point. Cant it be?
How long will it take to wean off Suboxone if I have been taking 1/8-1/4 of an 8mg pill a day? 30 years old been on Suboxone about a year.
When you are ready: Sounds like you've done the right thing by tapering it down which makes it easier to get off. Can even do 2 mg strips and take 1/2 (1 mg) and then 1/4 (0.5 mg) then stop. Timing depends on your comfort level, but should have a plan, be physically and mentally ready and work with a doctor who can support you while your getting off. Good luck, . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I ave been on suboxone 8 mg a day for a year. Had surgery. How lont can i wait to take percocet? Has been 48 hours.
What's doc say?: You need to clear timing of such things with your PAIN MANAGEMENT DOCTOR. They know you best and besides, dealing with controlled substances and patients on a network such as this in terms of giving solid recommendations or orders would not be a good thing thing to do in the eyes of regulators who oversee such things. I'm sure you understand. Your other option is to request a formal consult. ...Read more
Does depression normally occur when a person stops taking Suboxone after having been on it for a year? I don't feel happy without it and want to get back on it.
It sure can: Sometimes, folks take opiates (or other drugs of abuse including alcohol) in order to help themselves feel better due to an underlying problem such as depression or anxiety. In fact, this has been called: "self medicating." so maybe, you felt better with opiates because they helped your depression. You may benefit from an antidepressant medication. I recommend a psychiatric evaluation. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I've been on methadone& then Suboxone for withdrawal for about 1 year. If i need surgery, after quitting all med, will any narcotics ever work again?
Yes.: Hi conni, yes narcotics will work just fine. You may need a little more than a regular person, but if you've been off of them for a while, it will be the same as for the opiod naive person. Make sure you use IV opiods sparingly in the hospital and go to oral meds as soon as possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
