I'm on suboxone/subutex for opiate withdrawals & 2 stop opiate cravings. I have muscle spasms in my back & have been prescribed a few different relaxants n the past including, baclofen, flexeril, zanaflex, & soma. I have found baclofen 2 help my muscles not feel as tense when I'm on it. Zanaflex seems 2 make me 2 sleepy even taking just half a pill at a time.. Flexiril doesn't help me at all. I also have carpal tunnel n want 2 ask my sub Dr. If he can put me back on meloxicam cuz it has just started flaring up again lately n that's what I was taking n the past 4 it by my old dr who also was prescribing me the baclofen. I read on drugs.com drug interaction check and found meloxicam n subs have no findings of any interaction problems but baclofen and subs says it's a critical mixture 2 take 2gether.. Does anyone know if baclofen & other relaxants really aren't safe to take together? I see my sub Dr. On Jan 13th, (He is my only Dr. atm) and he is licensed 4 prescribing subs but he also is a MD Dr. for nerves, joints, bones, & muscles. Also does anyone know if gabapentin (Neurotin) can be prescribed for carpal tunnel instead of just an anti Inflammatory like meloxicam? Any help & information would be very helpful n I'd truly appreciate it please! Thank you :)
More questions for: Subutex
I am from Norway and 41 years old. I have been using Subutex every day for 19 years, and I was wondering if there are any users here with more than 10 years of use with this particular pill. My reason for asking is that a lot of things started happening after at least 10 years passed, now I am strugglig with a variety of problems; amongst other things my sleep is basically non-existant. And my heart is not functioning like it is supposed to, my resting pulse is all over the place. And of course, there is the matter of getting off this pill; I tried after 10 years and after 8 months of struggle I gave up - it is literally the worst drug I I have personally tried to get off. And again from my own experience; I would go as far as saying that getting off Heroin was a walk in the park compared to my attempt at quitting Subutex. All in all after 19 years I discovered that there are other serious matters with the use of this pill and I really could need some backing up from people with similar experiences, it would mean the world to me and many behind me if someone could share some knowledge. Of course that goes both ways; through the years I have compiled a great deal of knowledge about the use of Subutex and would be happy to offer whatever advice I could on the subject. But like i mentioned, i am in great need of some answers as well. To my knowledge and within the system (LAR) that are responsible for giving out Subutex here in Norway, I am one of very few with such a long term use of Subutex; and so I am trying to create better awareness about this substance within my user group which is based on the drug community in Oslo; the capitol of Norway. The use of Subutex in this country is basically new and the people in charge of this system know very little about it. So it goes without saying that many of the people i speak for feel like lab rats in this system they call "LAR", which stands for Pharmaceutical Assisted Rehabilitation. But of course - there is no rehabilitation other than the prescription and handing out of Subutex\Methadone and Subuxone. There is a lot more I would like to discuss about Subutex, f.ex wether it is actually a worse substance than Heroin; but I genuinly hope I will get to hear from someone who can relate or someone with some experience with this. Kindly regards Morten
My son, 37, is on Subutex and Metoprolol Succinate ER. He has been on the Subutex for over a year and the Metoprolol he started last night. He has been in a panic attack all day today, which is highly unusual for him. He did find out earlier today that he may not be able to get Subutex due to a new DEA regulation that only pregnant women can get Subutex and everyone else has to take suboxin. He is allergic to an ingredient in suboxin not found in Subutex. He is freaking out, but the anxiety level is far worse than I have ever seen him have. He has EDS and takes Metoprolol to level out the adrenaline in his body. But today it is worse. Could it be the Metoprolol causing the anxiety?
I've been on subutex for 7 years now and venlafaxine for 5 years I have mixed feelings about them as I do feel they helped save my life at the time they were prescribed to me but I'm convinced they're also what's stopping me living a normal productive life now. Love/hate relationship.
Hi Swim been on subutex 2 weeks tomorrow. Swim previously was on 70 mg a day of oxymorophone and up to 2 methacarbamol. Since switching to subutex ,Swim can barely stand the pain and muscle cramps. I tried the methacarbamol with the subutex and feel very loopy almost drunk, very sleepy and hung over and dull brained the whole next day. The methacarbamol is 750 mg. I'm going to try breaking it in half tonight. Any one else feel horrible with this combo?
I am a 58 year old male who has taken subutex and suboxone for 7 years on and off. It may seem like a miracle drug until you try to quit it. They have new rehabs just for this type of addiction. I would suggest never taking as much as they prescribe. I can get by on 25%. or 2mg per day when they prescribe 16mg. per day. I prefer subutex, much cheaper if you are buying with a script. Very hard to get. Up to $20.00 per pill on the street. Not enough doctors allowed to write the scripts and they stop your prescription the minute you complete treatment usually sending the addict out for illegal replacements and the circle goes around. Only use for a short period of time or it will be worse than your other habit.
