Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can i take my lisinopril 10mg with my suboxone 8mg
    I fell from a two story roof in 2010 and messed my back and knees up pretty bad. I was fine at first but after my dr at the time lost both of his feet to diabetes I was stuck looking for a new dr, I thought I found one but instead I found satan in a dr's smock. He took me from 90 oxycodone 15mg tablets per month to 240 oxycodone 30mg, 120 oxycodone 15mg, 120 opana 40mg and 120 xanax 2mg per month. So needless to say I became opiode dependent and it took me a little while before I could admit I had a problem, which incidently leads to my question. I'm taking suboxone 8mg twice daily for my addiction and taking one licinopril 10mg daily, my question is does licinopril interact with suboxone badly, or is it fine to take with it.

  • Is suboxone causing depression
    On suboxne, one shot of testosterone a month and andro gel everyday. Seem to be depressed and never have been in my life. Family suffering, wife mainly. It's in my family genes but I always thought it skipped me cause I have never been this way. Taking 12mg suboxone a day and starting to tapper off. Could it be the chemicals finally messing with me. Abused drugs a lot back in the days but never depressed, until now. Some good input would be great and very helpful. Thanks

  • Librium 25mg and wellbutrin 300mg for >1 month
    I've been taking librium twice daily, morning and night, for about 3 months now along with wellbutrin XL in the morning. I've basically had the mood of "I don't care" and a great boost in confidence.
  • 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.
  • Lorazepam nearly killed me during cancer treatment
    Day 31 of cold turkey and I want to die. It is a roller coaster from body tics and sweats to rage and crying in one day. I felt so good the 4h day of c/t. It was like before my cancer diagnosis. My bowels are better off Lorazepam. I threw up during bowel movements from the pain. Off Lorazepam first normal bowel movement in over 2 years. Stomach so damaged by Lorazepam that I have absolutely no appetite. I force myself to eat. Neuropathy in hands nearly gone. Feet are better but slower. Lymphedema that appeared after one year on Lorazepam is now gone. I have full range of motion.
  • Zoplicine /and /xanax taken together
    I am wondering if zopocline is compatible with Xanax. I have taken the together and had no adverse effects. Has any had this experience?
  • 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 currently prescribes Suboxone 16 MHD for the past two years. I take it as a pain reliever and to discourage myself from opiates. I also take Ativan 1.5 MHD per day for anxiety and panic. (weaning off)
    Anyway, I am a very active and alert woman fir the most part. Always on my feet! For the past few months I will pass out in the evening simply as I sit down for five minutes! I won't even feel tired! The most disturbing is I have been fainting and hitting my head or hurting myself as a result. I can be walking across my kitchen and the next thing, I come to while bashing into things. I'm literally falling at full speed, dead weight. I can tell because many times I'll wake up before I hit. I'll be ride awake....it's terrifying!!!! I told my dr and she downplays the medicinal aspect of it.

    I don't know what to do. Im not a drug user (recreational) but I feel I look like one'

    Please help!
