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 !"

Bunavail (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I absolutely love this drug! I hated taking my subs and this is hands down 100% easier to take. It does take some getting used to that gummy feeling on my cheek but I don't even notice it now."

Bunavail (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "This medication is awful. It rolls up every time you put it in your cheek. It literally takes hours to dissolve. One 4.2mg bunavail doesn't even come close to the equivalent of one 8mg suboxone. It's a shame that these shady pharmaceutical companies can use money to push inferior medicine through the fda and get it to addicts who can't even figure out how to take the stuff let alone use it as a replacement therapy to stay clean."

Bunavail (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I have been on Suboxone type medications since 2002 and it is now 2016; therefore, I would consider that I have tremendous experience with buprenorphine over the years. Suboxone Tablets then film for 7-10 years, tried Zubsolve, which was an awful experience. Finally Bunavail. I was taking 24-32 mg of Suboxone and I've been very very happy with Bumavail because I'm down to 12.6 mg a day. This is the only medication that I can take as prescribed and am feeling less medicated. I absolutely love it. Those who say it's terrible; maybe, but I have an inkling that he or she is just stuck and fears trying something new."

Zubsolv (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I've been perscribed suboxone in the past & it always worked. Although I wasn't too happy when I started to feel physically reliant( & bc I was not forwarned by anyone). My new doctor wrote me a script for zubsolv. My sub dosage was 16mg daily (2 8mg strips). The first day on zubs was horrible I was in full withdrawal with no effect I even took double what was perscribed bc I thought it might be that & it was low to begin with ( just 2 5.7mg tabs per day) & with no prevail. I suffered for 3 straight days it did not work at all. Finally on day 3 I felt some relief but I'm sure it's just because I was through the worst of my detox. I would not recommend this to anyone for the sole reason it's not worth the risk. It could make you relapse."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "I have been on subs for 7 years and have been very successful with my family and career! Two weeks ago I decided I don't want to depend on anything but my self, well I thought...... I have been taking just a quarter strip for one year now and If I skip a day I can barely function. Called my doctor and he told me there's no withdraw..... Bullshit!!!!!!! It's been two weeks I haven't takin it and I still can't sleep at night, my back feels like it's on fire, and I just got done puking my guts out! This has been the hardest thing I have EVER had to overcome! If your serious about getting clean DO NOT take this for a long period of time! Yes it helps the cravings but not your addiction!"

For Opiate Dependence: "First year of suboxone was great. Slowly started isolation and withdrawal from responsibilities like brushing my teeth, social activities, get up and go back to bed and isolate watching TV. Terrible feeling in the morning. Tried altering dosages. Nothing helps."

Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) for Opiate Dependence: "OK love you all first off but can't believe what I am reading, people saying opiate withdraws are three days lmao. You are not even dependent on them then. I've been to day 25 and felt worse than day three. The shits cramps no sleep every muscle and bones hurt can't eat lost 20 pounds. And none of it is in your head no shrink can help your pain how stupid. Couldn't even possibly make it to a shrink. And I have a degree in chemical dependency drug counseling. Its a joke. Helps no one. Now on to suboxone sure it keeps you from opiate withdrawals but its ten times worse to kick post accute withdrawals from suboxone can last up to two years. You can never get off it it could kill you for real. No one on box is even close to out of hot water"
