i was on high dose perks and vics for years for a back injury.now i'm on suboxone for the last year n 1/2.my back has gotten even worse now due to another injury & i was thinking about asking for the pain killers back.aside from the worry of relapse will it be a waste of time asking?will a doctor do it,& will insurance approve it for coverage? any input please? jeffrey sr.
hi jeff,are you on 32mg of suboxone ? cause that's the ceiling limit ?? sub with mussel relaxers or anti depression meds will work.but it would take alot of medication.im not a doctor so dont take anything without talking to one.the FDA just approved buprenorphine for pain med in patchs,5-10-20mcg that will last 7 days.they have used in europe for a few years."butrans"
I dont see why insurance wouldnt approve it. As far as the doc goes i would try seeing someone you never been to before that knows very little about you. Cause they just might say oh lets increase your suboxone and thats not what your looking for am i right. Next you dont release info about your suboxone treatment just that you had been takeing pain meds hadnt taken any in a while and the pain has become worse. This should get you where you need to be the way i see it doctors can lie to us so we should be allowed to bend the truth to them you know what i mean.
