... they work on different pathways? I know there is no euphoria etc. while taking the combo but will the roxicet actually work for pain while concurrently taking suboxone??

Naloxone, one of the ingredients in Suboxone, blocks opiates from attaching to the receptors in the brain. The information I read specifically states that suboxone is used to treat opioid addiction. So it's not making much sense to me. I'm sure someone with more knowledge on the specifics of Suboxone will have a more accurate, detailed answer for you.

No that makes no sense what so ever. Suboxone has both an opiate antagonist & an opiate agonist & it might make you feel some withdrawl feelings if you take the roxicete for awhile (without taking the suboxone) & then take the suboxone or the other way around. I experianced that first hand but in my case I had/have quite a large tolerance & I felt so awful I just laid on my couch not wanting to move,sweating & cold sweats at the same time,it was the worst!! Good luck with that,but I'd mention that to your doc cuz in my case the meds in my system were alot stronger than the oxycodone your prescribed,but you'd think the results would be similar.

i don't know if my comment posted, txt answ. from phone. Please run this past a pharmacist, they r the TRUE EXPERTS on all medications, that is all they do is meds. I have seen warning after warning about accidental OD'ing on subs + high doses of opiates on this site. u could run it past robert-325 as well. would u post it if the pharmacist and robert give that a big no? I have only seen 1 other post saying their pm dr. rx'ed subutex and oxy 4 breakthru and it got many negative responses, no positive responses, and subutex doesn't have naloxone in it.

Hi freeme123, I am not on suboxone for pain, but I am on Methadone for chronic pain. You can use other opoid pain reliviers while on this medication. You will still get pain relief from the roxicet, but no euphoria. As long as you are not trying to get high on the roxicet and are only using it for break through pain (which is probably the case) it should offer you some extra pain relief when needed. I hope you are feeling better. Fall Queen

I noticed alot of people are talking about methadone on here, Im going to warn you about it, here is my story, please please please dont ever start methadone, where is why..I was on methadone for almost 2 years, it is the devil drug, It makes you so tolerant to any kind of seditive, even months after getting off of it, also it is the hardest drug to get off of. Even if you do taper slowly off of it you will have the worst withdrawls. Doctors dont tell you any of this when you start it. I want to WARN anyone I can not to take that first methadone. You will be hooked and when you want off of it you will go through hell, you will go through horrible deppression, and you can have siezures, They say if you want to taper to take it down 1 mg a month and that will screw with you so so bad. With Suboxone you take one and you are good for at least 24 hours, Im am perscribed 90 a month and I always have at least 30 to 40 left by the end of the month.
When I get my oxycodone 30s for break through pain, I wait 48 hours till I take my oxycodone and take that alone till I run out then I wait 24 hours then resume my subs without any Withdrawl, If you are going to switch from Methadone to Suboxone you are going to have to wait at least a week cause if you dont you will go in to percipatated withdrawls, I know this first hand. Methadone is the devils drug if you want to get off of it someday, but if you are going to be on it for the rest of your life then koodos to you. But I warn you that Methadone withdrawls is the worst of all substances out there. It can kill you, alot of people commit suicide cause its just too much. Its not like other narcotic where you are sick for a week and you start feeling better. I been off of it for about 6 months now, I still cant sleep, my depression is worse and even on the subs i will still once in a while get that feeling of Withdrawls, and it can last up to a year or more before the methadone leaves your system and you will feel better and beable to sleep. So I encourage anyone that is offered Methadone to please research it first and ask if its worth it. Suboxone is a wonder drug and its so easy to come off of. Please pass it on to anyone you may know that is going to start Methadone to please research it and do other options, I really hope this post will help someone, I will not wish the tapering off of methadone on my worst enemy! Good luck to everyone on here, Narcotics is not something to mess around with. Happy Holidays!
