Work with doctor: You need to work very carefully with your doctors -- your ob-gyn and your prescribing psychiatrist -- to manage your pregnancy and the medicines you're on.

Is it legal for a doctor to perscribe 60mgs of aderral, 16mgs of suboxone, and 8mgs of klonapin a day?
For the same person?: Whether something is legal or whether it is good medical practice are two different things. It is legal, but not at all good for a doctor to prescribe all three of the drugs to the same patient. I wonder if it is a so called "pill mill? " the combination of opiates like Suboxone and Klonopin (clonazepam) can be deadly. The Klonopin (clonazepam) dose you mentioned (8 mgs/day) is very high. I would not trust such a doctor. ...Read more

Opiate Dependency: Suboxone contains Buprenorphine plus a short acting opiate blocker called naloxone. Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic partial opiate agonist. That means, it has very unique properties compared with other opiates like hydrocodone and oxycodone. Suboxone can take away the cravings for opiates so the addict can work on figuring out why he or she takes opiates in the first place. Suboxone saves lives. ...Read more
It Depends: Each case is different. The length of time a person may need to stay on Suboxone may depend on several factors including the length of time the person abused opiates, how potent was the opiate abused, how high a daily dose, the route they used (i.e. Intravenous, intranasal, by mouth, etc) and finally, whether the person has a family history of addictions. Slowly tapering Suboxone is usually best. ...Read more

Not necessarily: I have heard patients tell me that Suboxone withdrawal is not as bad and have also heard it's worse. It depends on from how high of a dose one is stopping whatever opiate they've been taking. It is much easier and safer to try and gradually decrease the opiate dose until one is stopping from a very low dose and not a higher dose. The higher the dose, the worse the withdrawal when stopping. ...Read more
