suboxone and surgery?
suboxone and surgery?
whats going to happen when i go in for surgery in a couple weeks?
I'm having a pretty invasive dental thing done and wonder whats going tp happen?
how will it affect Anesthesia? general and local... also what if i need pain medication?
i heard a horror story of a guy going in for emergency surgery and the pain med didn't work during and after surgery.
I'm begining to think i better get off this asap
been on 20 mg a day for a few months
i'm getting scared and i can't really put this off any more than a week or 2 more.
i'm starting to lose sleep over this... its not good

well lets see i take 75 a month sooooo yep 20 a day, think i can put off the dental thing maybe an additional 2 weeks for a total of 4 weeks, so i guess i need to take some action stating right now, btw thats exactly what i need to have done, its a back tooth that has to come out and there is nothing above the gum line, its not going to be good and I'm afraid i really need to take some serious and careful steps here in the next couple weeks, i am well aware of the risks involved with getting back on the vics, but i'm kinda thinking this may have a silver lining..... if i can get switched back to the vics for the short term, then i can go back to the sub at a much lower level knowing what i know now, I'm scared to death at the thought of this but see no other options and i really don't want to be introduced to something different and new, I know what the vics do and do to me and i know what is involved with getting off them with the sub... so i feel i'm kinda ahead of the game knowledge wise.. i'm going to go back to the pain dr on mon or tues and see what he says, plus I do have some here that i didn't finish before the sub, about 15 of them.
I was under the impression that the vics would work when i started feeling the sub wds 24 to 48 hours or i could just take vics after 24 hours and just keep taking them and i wouldn't get any WDs at all from the sub, this is what i need to know,,, what a friggin mess this is man..........
now,,,,,,,see if you can figure this out........
if i go without the sub untill i feel WDs then take a vic and it don't work with that vic prevent a sub from working ...hence nothing works and i go into complete wds?
if anyone else out there has any info on coming off 6 months of sub and trying to switch over I would verymuch like to hear from you
I really don't like to suggest doing vics instead of suboxone. But considering your situation and having the oral surgery it might be best for you. IF you will re-induct on the subs afterwards and start out at 8mg -12mg MAX and get off them in a month or so. I can help you with that. I have this tapering down thing figured out totally. Stay in touch. We can get you through this and off the subs when you start back in a reasonable time frame.
i have been thinking about this nonstop for over a week and i know its not the norm,,,,
this is my plan,,get the sub down and out... low as possible dose of vic till no longer needed then low as possible sub,,, its a very scary plan for me because i know where i was before,
i plan on getting my sub now while i can so i have it,,,,,do you think I can do a complete sub program from vics to sub to no more anything with 75 8mg suboxone pills?I would love it if i could.
lets just see how low i can go with the subs for now......hows that for a start
was thinking,,, i shouldn't be too deep into the vics if i go that route,,, it really should be easier ,,, much easier then,,,, this just might be happening for a reason.......but i need to get it down to a better level right away
whats a good cut back from a 20 average?
also was thinking maybe i won't need the pain meds if its not too bad....
i think too much, I better try and sleep some, talk tomorrow if you are around
ok shooting for 16 today
its noon and i'm at 8

suboxone and surgery
I am with you there on this issue with the surgery. I started taking suboxone less than a year ago because a friend told me about it. At the time I was badly addicted to pain killers and needed something to change. I didn't have the money or the insurance to go see a doctor so I been getting them from a friend. I managed to get myself down to like a sliver every day. Im thinking probably about 1mg. I can't seem to get over the hump to just quit but from what I know. Taking over 20mg a day of the sub is a LOT stronger than a few vics. It would be best for you to ween down as much as possible. Don't take any for a few days before the surgery. don't take any subs after. Use your prescription pain meds to get yourself off of the suboxone. A script of pain meds shouldn't be enough to get you physically addicted. All I know is that I am kicking myself in the ass for ever getting addicted to the suboxone. Seems as though it is harder to stop taking those than it would have been to just stop taking the pain killers in the first place. Even if after the surgery you still need to take them, take much less. I could not imagine having to take even a HALF of a suboxone. it would make me sick! Good luck!
