Will clonipin and Valium help my withdrawal from opiates for the first 5 days during withdrawal!

Detox: Please, listen to experience. It is never wise to self medicate or to self detox from any addictive substance. You are not choosing the right or best medications. Seizing, blood pressure issues, and the nausea of withdrawal can be very difficult. Benzos are just as addicting and as dangerous as opiates for a brain with the disease of addiction. ...Read more

Are Suboxone withdrawals better than roxy withdrawals?

Are Suboxone withdrawals better than roxy withdrawals?

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

I'm currently on 18mgs of suboxone. I was wondering how bad the withdrawal from suboxone is? Compared to methadone or opiate withdrawal?

Opiate withdrawal: If you’re considering discontinuing suboxone, you’ll need to taper it. Withdrawal can include nausea, muscle cramps, anxiety, depression, diarrhea, insomnia, etc. Opiate withdrawals are generally similar in their predictable effects. Suboxone withdrawal is treatable by tapering the medication. Please discuss a taper regimen with your prescriber if this is what you wish to do. Good luck! ...Read more

Will 30mg roxy help with heroin withdrawal?

Will 30mg roxy help with heroin withdrawal?

Out of frying pan...: ...Into the fire. Roxycodone will work for heroin withdrawal because it is another opioid. However, it's kind of like using brandy to manage vodka withdrawal. It does not make sense and the problem of opioid addiction will remain, i.e. The name of the addiction will not change - opioid addiction. Hope this helps. If you are dealing with this, please seek professional help asap. ...Read more

Can u withdrawal from Suboxone and why?

Can u withdrawal from Suboxone and why?

Opiate Withdrawal: The active ingredient in suboxone is called Buprenorphine (bupe). Bupe is by itself an opiate and is used as part of what is known as the harm reduction model with opiate replacement therapy. The harm reduction model attempts to improve the opiate addict's overall level of functioning while causing less harm and in some cases-death. Suboxone is not a cure for opiate addiction. ...Read more

Is generic subutex less strong than brand suboxone? Ever since i switch i've experienced what feels like slight withdrawal by the end of the day

Is generic subutex less strong than brand suboxone? Ever since i switch i've experienced what feels like slight withdrawal by the end of the day

Different compounds: Suboxone is a compound that contains both subutex and when you switch over to subutex without the Naltrexone protection, you are putting yourself at risk for developing tolerance to the subutex alone. This could explain why you are feeling the effect wear off at the end of the day. You may also wish to take a look at some of your herbal supplements to see if they affect the blood levels of suboxone or subutex. There is always the chance that by being compounded differently, although the original doses of medications are the same, they may be absorbed somewhat differently in different formulations. Best wishes. ...Read more

I've been on 8mg subutex for 1.5yrs. Its been 7 days since last dose. How long will withdrawal symptoms last & how long til i can pass a ua dip test?

Can last for weeks: Cold turkey withdrawal is almost guaranteed to result in relapse, and is part of the problems people with addiction have with "wanting what they want when they want it." ideally you should taper down by 2 mg a week or every other week. Withdrawal can last weeks and is one of the factors promoting relapse. If you are not in counseling, do so. Urine tests can pick up suboxone for a week or more. ...Read more

Is 12-15 hours long enough time after taking oxycodone to take subutex without getting early withdrawal, its for chronic pain not addiction.

Yes, long enough.: Half life of oxycodone, how long it takes to clear half of oxycodone, is about 3.5 hours. It takes about 5 X 3.5 hours to clear most of dose. 12-15 hours clears about 80% of dose. Subutex should not cause withdrawal from oxycodone at 12-15 hours (since it partially blocks the opioid receptors), and it can actually block withdrawal if you are stopping oxycodone after chronic usage. ...Read more

Is it safe to wean off of 16mg Subutex and 1mg Klonopin simultaneously within a month? I also have Clonidine and Gabapentin to help with withdrawals.

Tapering off meds: I would consult with a psychiatrist/addiction specialist who can provide a specific plan for tapering off those medications as well as determine for you specifically whether it would be recommended to do so within the course of a month. It can be rather uncomfortable to come off those medications if the taper is done too quickly. ...Read more

Can breastfeeding help decrease or alleviate a newborn's symptom severity from withdrawals associated w/ 3rd trimester, high-dose RX Xanax (alprazolam) exposure?

Not good idea: While Xanax (alprazolam) does cross into breast milk, the keve l s can be very erratic and thus not a good plan for withdrawl. Otherwise, you are basically asking about keeping your newborn addicted to a controlled substance by passing him the med through your milk to "alleviate withdrawl". You are not alleviating withdrawl, you are keeping them addicted. Don't do it. Do withdrawl supervised in hospital. ...Read more
