?: I can't tell you because I don't know you but even if I knew you, it depends. There is nothing written in black ; white. Ea. Place for addiction is different. I don't like methadone. Insurance or not, 12mg. Should be the max. You probably need more counseling or different counseling. Maybe you should consider vivitrol. Hope his helps. ...Read more

It will be two years this Aug 1st that I have been taken suboxone. I started at 2 8mg. Stripes a day and tapered all the way down to 2mg. A day Dr basli has told me that when I'm ready to stop I can. My insurance has not helped for none of this treatment.

First of all: Congratulations! Secondly where do you live.? Technically the AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT covers treatment for addiction. Your Insurer is REQUIRED to offer this coverage and PRE-EXISTING conditions may NOT BE USED to disqualify you!

One day at a time
Good Luck... Hope this helps!

Need help with how much of my first suboxone dose I should take having such a low tolerance to any type of medication. Please help!

Need help with how much of my first suboxone dose I should take having such a low tolerance to any type of medication. Please help!

Seems odd: If someone is on suboxone, they have had an addiction history with taking narcotics. Can the person have a "low tolerance" to the abused medication?
The standard dosing is about one TENTH the average final dose of suboxone (2 mg versus 16). So, going with teh standard dose of 2 and rapidly increasing would be quite safe (except for possible withdrawal from prev narcotics). ...Read more

How much time does Suboxone stay in your urine one 8mg strip?

How much time does Suboxone stay in your urine one 8mg strip?

Up to 5 days: It is a very long-acting and very slowly metabolized drug, and its metabolites (norbuprenorphine) stay even longer if they are being looked for. Most drug screens do not test for it, and there are special kits that do. Confrimatory tests (GC/MS, LC/MS/MS) should detect it in any case, and depending on where they set their sensitivity (like 50 ng/ml) can detect it for 7-10 days. ...Read more

How much time do I need to wait to take Suboxone after taking methadone?

How much time do I need to wait to take Suboxone after taking methadone?

That depends on how: Long you were on Methadone and on what dose. Suboxone (buprenorphine) will precipitate withdrawal in people who are dependent on other opioid drugs. Methadone is very long-acting, and precipitated withdrawal can occur even days after your last dose if you were on Methadone long-term. Tapering Methadone down to 30 mg or less, and waiting 2-3 days (until withdrawal is present) is the safest way. ...Read more
