Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I went through 4 days of hell coming off of a 7 yrs of Percocet and 9 months of Fentanyl. I decided to check in to medical detox and they used Suboxone. Instantly all withdrawal symptoms gone! I only used it in detox and it was a Godsend! I recommend using for a very short period!!"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I was opiate dependent for 5 years... Prescription opioid that is. Only one time did I use heroine 2 supplement prescription opioids. I have been on Suboxone since last Tuesday and I can honestly say I feel like a new person... Honestly people if you're thinking about it... It is totally worth a shot!!"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I don't know if this is hurting my kidneys. I don't know if it will be extremely hard to get off of it. I DO know that I would be dead without Suboxone. I lied, stole money... anything to not have withdrawals. I didn't have much hope for Suboxone. I thought it would be like a patch when you try to quit smoking (helps but doesn't do the trick) Day ONE... immediately... I felt NO withdrawal symptoms whatsoever. I was ecstatic! If you are on drugs... you MUST do this NOW! I was skeptical...but this is the best choice I've made in my life. Suboxone gave me my life back. No exaggeration."

Bunavail (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I switched to Bunavail because its alot cheaper then suboxone films and even the generic tablets. I have no problems with it. Yes the gummy stuff takes a minute to get used to but less medicine and same results. Works wonders staying on the program."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "This is helping a lot, after 6years of pills and heroin used, I can finally work every day again buy groceries and started paying down my 6year old credit card debt, I was also an acholholic before I found opioids 6years ago, now I found Doc to put me on suboxone 8_2s, life so far much better without the daily chase and almost weekly nasty withdrawals, that almost ended my marriage and good job. I almost lost my house from the cost of my street bought opioid dependence, in fact if it weren't for my younger brother and his $12,000.00 I would have.This RX my not be for everyone but so far so good. My GOD bless the weak, sick and hurt. :-)"

For Opiate Dependence: "Prior to having this medication prescribed to me, I was taking Methadone for chronic pain from Multiple Jaw surgeries with chronic pain and neck pain.I had no idea that my pain management dr. was going to prescribe this Suboxone Film. This medicine has made me nauseated and I had severe tremors. My heart was beating way too fast and I was scared to death. I thought that prior to a doctor prescribing this Suboxone Film that they would at least talk to me about this, but that was not what happened. I am extremely upset about this. I do not abuse drugs and have never used illegal drugs ever. I hope that this information is of help to a patient that also does not expect this to happen."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I tried this as an alternative to other opiates for long-term pain management (I have very severe orthopedic issues and have for many years). It worked ok for pain management at the max dose except that I couldn't then take any other opiates for break-through pain control (only tramadol, which is useless to me, and even then my insurance company eventually stopped allowing the combo), so I was stuck with lowering my activity level so my pain would increase as little as possible. I also developed a whole host of side effects, the worst of which was probably horribly dermatitis on my face. I also found out after the fact that taking suboxone forever labels you as an opiate addict who needed it to help stop your addiction, which isn't my case!"

Bunavail (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Horrible, was on 8mg suboxe a day for a week and my doctor just switched randomly after I told him I did not want bunavail he gave me 3 weeks worth and it sucks the depression I get in the middle of the day I still feel shitty and still want to use! I actually went and relapsed after taking 2 4.2 mg tabs and almost felt the full feeling from the relapse was falling out a lil bit and everything! That never would have worked if I was even on 8mg of Suboxone. Can't wait to get back to doctor and make him switch me back. The depression I get from even the slightest withdrawal off bunavail is awful. Tell your doctor u don't want bunavail! I believe the true reason they made this stuff is because people cannot inject it like they can suboxone"

Bunavail (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Insurance would not pay for Suboxone so I was given Bunavail and it sucks in comparison. Bunavail gave me headaches and I had to take twice the amount to fell ok but still gave me a down and out feeling. It did however keep the urge of using down but made me wish I had never started taking these."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I'm only 20 but I've already developed a pretty serious skag habit, had a mild OD just two days ago (woke up before EMTs arrived) and that was the last straw.Tried 10 times to quit in the last 2 months but I'm a pussy and could never get past the second day, luckily after I OD'ed I received the right resources to quit once and for all Today was my first day on suboxone after going to a clinic that is truly a god-send. I was able to walk in without an appointment and walked out with a 7 day supply (look for clinics with multiple doctors so you don't have to wait to get in)Anyway I feel FANTASTIC. The withdrawls and cravings are completely gone. Took 30 mins to start to feel and about an hour to really kick in. I feel normal! Bless this drug!"

Bunavail (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I am new to opiate addiction but not new to this world. After 3 years of prescribed oxy and oxycontin at 60 mg with a doctor who would not increase my dose due to my tolerance, i found a hook up that helped me increase my 60 mg to 210 mg a day habit. Needless to say, I was becoming broke. At the beginning of July i had a friend check me into a four t o five day clinic at my 26th hour of no oxis due to an effective DEA seizure I guess. I was hurting and delusional. I asked the question of which one was easiest and Bunavail won!! I think they are amazing!"in thev28th hour I received my first 4.2 patch- it is suppose to be equivalent to an 80 mg oxi.. I have had no withdrawals minus that first day I put myself through hell."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Getting onto suboxone was the best decision I've made for a long time. A lot of people don't like it because it doesn't get you real high after about 7 days of being on it, suboxone is there for people that genuinely want to get off the skag, if your not one off these people then get on the methadone and stop badmouthing suboxone, its saved my life and a lot of money, instead of thousands of dollars a month I only pay 60 now. Take care all"

Zubsolv (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I was in a horrid motorcycle accident and ended up having to take almost 8 10mg Norco a day to feel good/normal. I went to a doctor who told me the Norcos were causing the pain now and I needed to get off. Skeptical but hopeful I tried the doc's plan. First 3 days I was on Subutex which I started as soon as my withdrawals started and it took 2 pills before my withdrawals stopped after about 10 minutes. I continued on that dose for 2 more days and then started Suboxone strips and after about 6 months my doc switched me to Zubsolv. I cut down Zubsolv, as tolerable, from 2 pills a day to a quarter pill then quit. 4 days later I think I'm feeling a lot better but I still need more time to normalize. Hope this helps!"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "The sub's, are keeping well from opiod withdraw. And It is keeping me out of pain! I take a buprenorphine patch 20 milligram I wear it for 7 days it works fine. I was taking the patch and taking oxycodone. I got on the Suboxons to get off the oxy's. So I'm asking can I just stop soboxoñ and apply the patch??"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "This drug was a monster for me. I took it to get off opiate pain medication thru the VA. My legs and feet swelled to enormous proportions and the pain was terrific. The VA uses veterans as guinea pigs. Stay away."

Zubsolv (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Recently switched to Zubsolv 8.6 after 3 years on 12mg Suboxone strips. My doctor and I had discussed making the first move in the weaning process, and when my insurance no longer would pay for Suboxone but would pay on Zubsolv, this seemed like the most natural progression. It is reported that Zubsolv has greater bioavailability than Suboxone. For me it has thus far been a fairly smooth transition. I continue to have no cravings, nor have I experienced any W/D symptoms."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I was a herion addict for 10yrs and at my rock bottom lost everything, sold everything even my beloved dog just for a bag, sick isnt the word for herion addiction, I had know way out. One got caught stealing cell phones from my family members, I was in jail detoxing thinking I was going to die. Once I got out jail clean I was determined to find a suboxone doctor and I did it was the best choice I have ever made! Now im 2 years clean and suboxone was a important tool and helping me do so! I owe my life to suboxone and it really offends me when people bash the drug because its a true life saving drug!"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "You know, nothing in life is perfect..and as addicts we should know. Suboxone, like any medication has its ticks. Constipation, sleepiness, that's my side effects. However, would I trade that for the lying, stealing, anxiety, ocd, withdrawal worries, etc etc? My answer is NO. Hell NO. I struggled and fought on my own thinking I could manage my addiction myself for 10 long years. Through 2 births, my husbands 12 deployments, that was the hardest 10 years of my life. It's nice to know life doesn't have to be that difficult and that with Suboxone as a tool, not a fix-all thing, I'm gonna make it. Life with Suboxone is much better than life without it. Period. ( bought off friends during those 10 years as a detox, but been on maintenance 21mth)"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "This medication doesn't really provide the relief I am looking for. You really do not feel this medication as you would even say oxycodone, however it is so potent that not only does it bind with every opiate receptor in your brain, it begins creating new ones and fitting into receptors that are not opiate receptors causing damage to the brain. Many people that are aware of this take the lowest dose possible being 2 mg. Methadone is its own evil in itself, however I think any opiate besides this one is better due to its extreme destruction to the brain and the use of Naloxone, which causes damage to your kidneys, liver and other organs."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Works great to kick a opiate habit but a f**king nightmare to get off of. I've had to stop because I'm pregnant and I haven't slept more than 2 hours a night in a week, go back and forth with having diarrhea and being constipated from being so dehydrated, my skin won't stop crawling. It's a nightmare and I've only been taking it for about 3 or 4 months and was down to a 1/4 of a strip, skipping days when I could. I wish I just would have detoxed the hard way for a few days."

Bunavail (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I was put on Bunavail because of the constipation I was having on the Bup's. I used to take 2mg twice a day...my Doc told me how great this new Bunavail is, yada yada. The first two days of it, I was going thru WD's! My moods were awful, I was clammy but hot, sweating, chills, no appetite. So my Doc tells me to double my dosage, and finally I feel better...no more WD's, but my gosh...the mood swings...I'm like a crazy woman on her period, ready to snap on the next person that irritates me. That's NOT like me, I'm always rainbows and butterflies, and I hate this. While the constipation has gotten better, it's still there. I'd rather have to take laxatives then deal with these mood swings. I'll give it another month until my next appointment"

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "Life saving! Im so happy to have this drug, I was a severe herion/opioid dependent for 8+ years, I got pregnant and got off the dope, seeked council whoch led me to methadone clinic. It was a way to maintain with a baby without full withdraw/detox. Skip 2 years of maintenance methadone. Finally took the leap to suboxone. 100% best decision I could ever do for myself and my Family. Both my husband and myself are addicts, together when using we were going to either get a divorce , go to jail , or die. You cannot uae narcotics on thus drug. If you do you will be very sick, or in my case you spend enough money to realize that you can do copious amounts of dope and not feel any different ! That's life changing !"
