I know you can't take xanex.is klonopin the same? I don't want to use,but just curious... if one was on suboxone and lets say I got injured and needed pain medication would it work? would it stop the pain? oh... and can you get addicyed to nadvil? sorry... many questions.
No you can't take any benzos at all and that includes valium, xanax, klonipin, ativan, or lorazepam. Unless you want to risk not breathing. No, pain medicine will not work if you take them on top of suboxone, or while it is still in your body. It may throw you into severe withdrawal. No, you can't physically be addicted to advil, but, you can mentally be addicted to them. If you take advil too often, you will get rebound pain.
I was in the hospital. I really had to watch out for myself. Big Time. The Dr. and Nurse dont really know about suboxone yet. You have to teach them about it. I already had non narcotice pain meds in mind just in case something happened thank God. I requested Tordol for pain. There are a few more visiral is another. I dont think I spelled either of the drugs right... sorry
Hi, this is difficilt time for you, my brohter just finshed his subutex/suboxone regimen, is off for now and for good. You are on you way too, for what those words of encouragement mean. Anyway, instead of Klonopin, be open with your provider and ask for Atarax liquid or Vistaril suspension, yes they are the same medications in liquid forms but different names, take these for anxiety, make sure that you take the liquid for its rapid onset. Also, you may want to ask for a sleep aide if you are not sleeping at nite such as trazadone. good luck, hope that this helps.
For anyone who is taking suboxone or even thinking of it, you should be very familiar with it, the side effects, and what you should be able to take with it. You can go to this website: www.suboxone.com and order a packet of information they will send you that is an excellent source of information. Some doctors will give them out prior to the administration of the medication, but many don't. Suboxone works as an agonist and an antagonist, therefore, it keeps some of your body's own natural pain receptors working, which is a good thing, especially why it works well for chronic pain patients who are at high risk of re-injury when taking high doses of pain medication and masking their pain. I am sure many of us have done this! We start feeling a bit better, start doing to much, then feel worse again...
especially if you are a chronic back pain sufferer! Any benzodiazepine of any kind is out of the question and other narcotics, like Nubain or Demerol can cause a fatal withdrawal if administered in an emergency room setting. Thus, it is imperative that in an emergency those who will be caring for you know you are taking this drug. The packet of information found on the website at www.suboxone.com includes a wallet card to carry with you. If you take Toradol or an anti-inflammatory, such as ibuprofen, you will still get the benefit of the drug to reduce swelling or fever without any difficulty. The suboxone has naltraxene in it. It is designed so people are unable to crush, snort, shoot, or invent any way of taking the drug, other than the way it is intended of being consumed, which is sublingual. (under the tongue) It has a nasty taste and is orange in color. I have a problem with pedal edema on higher doses. Has anyone else had this problem? I am currently on 2mg/0.5mg 4 times per day, which is unusual, as most people take it at one time in the morning, etc., but I do much better if it is spread throughout, and it was not holding my pain all day. If I am in severe pain in the hospital (i.e. kidney stone) I have been given Dilaudid and done fine with it. The emergency room doctor contacted the ordering physician and he explained to the E.R. doctor that it is difficult to get other pain medications through it. The downside of that is by the time I need to get off of it, I will probably have to be entered into a rehabilitation unit to do it. I was previously on the Duragesic Patch (Fentanyl) and then Avenzia and developed a severe physical dependence (on 1 capsule per day) ending up in a rehab. unit for 5 days when they gave me bupernorphine injections every 4 hours then I took Vicodin until the doctor received the FDA waiver to administer the Suboxone to me. It has been a long road, but I am alive because of Suboxone. My life is certainly not as active as it once was, and I am still in pain, but it makes it more tolerable.
