On Jan, 16, 2015: 733 males aged 27 (±5) who take Suboxone, Butalbital, Aspirin And Caffeine, Suboxone, Gabapentin are studied

Suboxone, Butalbital, Aspirin And Caffeine, Suboxone, Gabapentin outcomes

Information of the patient in this study:

Age: 27

Gender: male

Conditions: Addiction, Pain, Drug Dependence

Drugs taking:
- Suboxone (buprenorphine hydrochloride; naloxone hydrochloride): used for 5 - 10 years
- Butalbital, Aspirin And Caffeine - 325MG;50MG;40MG (aspirin; butalbital; caffeine): used for 1 - 2 years
- Suboxone - 8MG;2MG (buprenorphine hydrochloride; naloxone hydrochloride): used for 5 - 10 years

Comments from or about the patient: Gabapentin at times would cause extreme butalbital (a barbiturate in Fioricet) withdrawal, unless I took the butalbital AFTER dosing gabapentin. In the morning, if I were to take butalbital first; it was cause extreme migraines, moderate anxiety, and general introductory barbiturate withdrawal symptoms. After dosing <800mg-1000mg.. these symptoms slowly resolved themselves within roughly ~4 to ~7 hours. However, for the full 12 hours it butalbital was ineffective.

This is in stark contrast when I take gabapentin FIRST, before taking butalbital. The need to dose butalbital seemed to be lessened. However, when taken in these circumstances, the effects do not realize themselves as quickly as they usually do (WITHOUT gabapentin).. the effects seem to be less acute & extended; however, with less immediate relief. But overall, when dosed with this regime--taking butalbital will severely increase duration & intensity by the end of the day if you take your normal daily dose through out the day. But again, individual doses seem to have a decreased efficacy--but cumulative dosing (at usual daily intake) causes extreme synergy after several doses of butalbital- causing ataxia, talkativeness, and anxiolytic effects.

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can i take naloxone with ocarbazpine
    wondering if the Naloxone mixed with the triliptal is doing this. Wondering if I can take the Buprenorphine with this medication
  • Does suboxone cause extreme anger issues? (1 answer)
    My husband was my best friend. He started taking suboxone 2 years ago after stopping methadone cold turkey and in recent months he gets very angry over nothing. He can wake up out of a dead sleep screaming, throwing things, hitting me. You can't talk to him. It's really scary. He refuses to allow me to use a phone to call for help. He doesn't want me telling anyone what's going on. About a month ago, a friend of his came here with some neurontin and said it was for my husband. The doctor he sees was suppose to wean him off the meds but his dose is still the same. I'm concerned that he will hurt me or himself(he tries cutting himself during his episodes) but he won't tell me what going on. I wonder if there is a way to inform his physician of this new change without him finding out or if there is a specific time for coming off. Should this doctor have already began the weaning process? What can I do to save my husband and our marriage? Please help!

  • Ears thundering after suboxone or any opiate
    Anyone notice the thundering in your ears after taking suboxone. Larger doses mostly and it actually happens with any opiate. It's a rumbling in the ears, I did read that hearing loss and opiates were connnected. hmmm
  • Ulcerative colitis from suboxone?
    Anyone else out there experiencing ulcerative colitis after multiple yearprescribed Suboxone? Suboxone stole a large portion of my life, and now I am considering going on a full-agonist analgesic until the buprenorphine bond has broken, and no more presence of it in my plasma. Insane!
  • Suboxone treatment may have caused my trichotillomania
    It's a long story of how I became addicted to opiates after 15+ years of chronic pain, but I decided to give up pain killers and try suboxone/subutex treatment. Shortly thereafter, I began pulling hair. First from my head, then when the bald spots became too obvious I started pulling from all over. It seemed to be triggered by stress or anxiety but not always. I did not make an association until recently, when I finally stopped the suboxone. It was two weeks of miserable withdrawal, much worse than from pain killers themselves, but I am finally out of the haze I'd be in all of that time, and I have no urge to pull hair whatsoever. I don't know how often the association of suboxone use and trichotillomania has been examined, but I wanted to share my experience in case anyone else is in a similar situation. Also, if you are considering starting suboxone treatment, don't. Withdrawal from opiates will lead to a few pretty rough days, but that's nothing compared to what you'll go through during suboxone withdrawal.
  • Pacemaker experience
    I had a pacemaker installed about 5 weeks ago. I went to the doctors because I was feeling fatigue, shortness of breath, I felt as if someone was holding my heart in their hand and I had some confusion and dizziness.

    To get to the point, after my first visit with my PCP I decided to go directly to emergency via 911 since my PCP was basically ignoring, or better put, had no sense of urgency regarding how I was feeling even though she knew my heart rate had dropped and was steady at 44 bpm, my normal rate 62 bpm.

    The night I was in observation at the hospital I dropped to 20 bpm, next day I had a pacemaker installed, had I not taken the initiative to call the hospital I don't know if I would have continued dropping until I was dead, I don't know enough about the science behind this to draw that conclusion but common sense tells me yes.

    I have explained this in another post but I cannot find it, not sure what I am doing wrong, so I am writing another post because I have more to add after a couple of weeks since my last post.

    The issue I have is I am still tired after more than a month after the installation of the pacemaker. I had the bpm (beats per minute) on my pacemaker increased from 60, the factory settings, to somewhere in the mid 60's.......so I thought. I went to the hospital twice to have my pacemaker "tweaked" but when I met with the cardiologist for my "one week" follow up, which took almost three weeks to see him due to his heavy schedule, he told me there were never any changes made to my pacemaker, I was still at 60 bpm. How could this be since I was told twice it had been increased? I had the wand on my chest and the nurse made the changes which were made due to my complaining about being exhausted still, the reason I went to the PCP in the first place five weeks ago.
    Was she playing mind games, thinking the power of suggestion would make me feel better? If so I am disgusted to think she would feel I was faking my feelings of exhaustion, what she did had absolutely no effect on how poorly I was feeling.

    To get to the point, I finally had my first meeting with the surgeon, he raised my bpm to 75 from 60, was going to go to 80 but changed his mind. The moment he made the change to 75 bpm from my original 60 he asked if I was feeling better, feeling better after 60 seconds of changing the bpm, how is that possible? I told him no, kind of too soon to tell. His reply was "it looks like we have done everything we can on our end, your heart was not significantly damaged, your pacemaker is working as it should, therefore there must be something else making you feel so poorly so I suggest you see an internal medicine specialist." My brain had a big WHAT sign flashing, I couldn't believe what he was saying, basically beat it and move on, I don't have the time to deal with you anymore. Lets see, the appointment lasted 25 minutes and he does not have the time to work with me anymore, sorry but that irritates the hell out of me.

    He was washing his hands of me, nothing else he could do so spend time and money finding out what the problem is with an internest, it is not my heart according to the cardiologist. The appointment ended and I left wondering how I was going to find out what is causing my issues.

    To my great fortune a nurse with 20 years experience teaching doctors and nurses how to use the pacemaker computer asked me to come into her office after my appointment with the cardiologist, she asked me this prior to seeing the doctor. Thank God she did as the doctor did not do a thorough job adjusting the pacemaker, she adjusted what the doctor had, tweaked the pacemaker a bit, had me walk for 10 minutes and come back to the office and did a bit more tweaking, I slowly started feeling a touch better. She asked me to come back in two weeks and she would see if the pacemaker needed to be tweaked a bit more. I was walking on air, still not close to my "normal", thrilled I was not just a number being tossed in the heap of unfixed people. I am feeling 70% better than how I felt prior to the doctor and her tweaking the pacemaker. Had she not been there that day and had the opportunity to do this I would be on a never ending search for what is making me feel so exhausted and!
    dizzy.

    There is a moral to this which I will let you draw your own conclusion. In my mind it is trust God will intervene, he certainly did when the nurse asked me to see her after the appointment with the surgeon. The reason I feel this way is because she was there and is only there on Fridays, the day I had my appointment. I never would have gone back again after my meeting with the doctor and I would have been spending needless hours and money looking through the wrong box for what ales me. Now it is obvious it was my pacemaker settings, my heart rate was set too low and the pacemaker was not fine tuned properly with the proper slope and other settings.

    Don't let these doctors do what mine tried doing with me, be aggressive and insist on more adjustments if you have issues similar to mine.

    AS I sit here I am still tired, I could easily take a nap but I am better than I was yesterday, significantly.

    Best of luck to all. Your comments will be very much appreciated.
  • Yawning after taking sub
    Within a few minutes after I take my Suboxone film I seem to get intense yawning event along with runny nose & watery eyes lasting 5-15 mins. Sometimes I can make it subside by drinking a lot of water if I am in a place I can get it. I have been on Sub for approx 5 yrs. & have only noticed this side effect during the past 1 yr or so. It doesn't seem to matter if I take 1/2 or a whole film, (4mg or 8mg.)
    While this isn't life shattering it can be quite annoying if I am out in public, at work, etc. The yawning gets so intense at times I feel like my jaw will unhinge & can't control it at all.
    It seems paradoxical to me. Previously taking Sub would stop any typical opiate withdrawal symptoms such a yawing & runny nose & eyes. Now it actually causes this effect. I don't get any other feelings of going into withdrawal. Just those I mentioned. Could it be a reaction to the naloxone?

I thought nothing of it since its winter here.then for the past 2 days my tongue has been swollen and has like little bumps on it. My mouth and throat hurt so bad that i can not eat because it causes so much pain and can only drink water. I had a nose bleed yesterday as well. I was tested for stds last month because i delivered a child. All negative and i am married and in a monogomous relationship so im not worried about STD's. I also on the insidw of my top lip jave little white blisters. It feel dry up there as well. Is this an allergic reaction to the suboxone? Im kind of freaking out.
