But the doctor will not continue to treat me with Subutex if I test positive for benzos--Klonipin, which I take for anxiety disorder. The DEA says that the combo is not allowed b/c of the possiblity of overdose--which is extremely remote. How can I give a urine sample that shows the Subutex but not the Klonipin? Are Subutex/Suboxone clinics testing for Subutex levels in addition to other drugs?
Welcome to the site. I am a bit confused. No judgement! Just need to clarify? Is the doctor that is treating you for anxiety not the same doctor that is treating you with subs? And, if not, is there not a way for the two to communicate the treatment plan they have for you? My suboxone doctor prescribed me Klonipin for severe anxiety attacks and Buspar for mild treatment during the day. He has a lot of experience with addiction and is the one that prescribed me both medications. He did only prescribe 10 Klonipin as he would like me to be off of them and I am to use them only when needed. Another thought, is your doctor that is treating your anxiety disorder LICENSED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE about subutex/suboxone to be able to prescribe them for you and therefore you can be under the care of just one doctor? It is very important the doctor know about suboxone and not just 'have' them to dispense at will. Pattishan61 and LaurieShay are both good people to discuss suboxone and subutex with. Hope this helps!
