Buprenex - treatment for addiction to morphine and dosage amount?
Added 11 Nov 2009:
I need to be more specific. I am an RN and human physiologist, retired...so far. I took SQ Buprenex in 2003 to get off hydrocodone and small doses of oxy codone, like 10 to 15 mg of oxy. I had been on the drugs for 5 years. From 1991 to about 1995 i took these drugs and a small amt of others... Everything i've taken is an RX. Yet, now i am taking 30 mg tabs of MSIR, 7 a day and 30mg tabs of oxy. 4 to 5 a day. I am afraid i am taking so much that the Buprenex won't suffice. I have no insurance yet because i have a seizure hx (3) and a brain aneurysm, etc. etc. I see a pain mngt M.D. 1 per month and am going broke, while trying to get insured.He will write for this, maybe, but i don't know if he can estimate the dosage either. He is big on methadone, but it makes me go to sleep...I think if anyone has 2nd hand or personal experience that would help me. Also, any ref. books may help? I have withdrawn from everyone, but parents and son. Only he knows and he is his own mess. I am not afraid of death or life, only this inbetween crap i am in now, that's very scarry! Help?

I just realized i sound very dramatic. Sorry about that, one of those days you know...
Subutex just went generic. Please do see a doctor who can prescribe suboxone or subutex. I am pretty sure you can be helped with it, most people can. You might want to make sure the doctor will write subutex instead of suboxone, not all doctors will. You can go to the suboxone webpage and find a doctor there in you area who has the special license necessary to write a prescription for these meds. Good Luck.
