Hi rodney24 its funny you should mention that me and this nurse at the ER discussed that as he was injecting the nubain in my iv line he asked if i was on methadone. I said no why and he said that taking the nubain and methadone together can throw you into full withdrawls so i wouldnt recommend it. See the nubain is a narcotic used commonly in the ER i dont know how new it is but ive never heard of it till just recently. Hope this was helpful michelle.
Nubain, Stadol, Suboxone and other drugs that have an opiate agonist/antagonist can throw anyone into full blown withdrawls if you are on a continous around the clock medication that is just an opiate agonist. Those drugs all have another drug in it, usually naltrexone or nalexone that prevent the body from absorbing the opiate in it as well as if it didn't have it in it. ALWAYS ask what medication you are being given if you are on a maintenece medication for pain management or other reasons. Also, ALWAYS make sure that the doctor and nurses know that you are on that kind of medication. Good luck.
