If you dont know what it is then don't answer. I do not have an anger problem, i just cannot stand people that waste my time.
If you cannot bring the right information to this topic then scroll past it. Problem solved.

I did find the number and i am going to call and ask all about it tomorrow.

I have researched it and it is not a NARCOTIC. SO why dont you leave your little smart ass comments to yourself.
I am trying to help someone out here.

What is Suboxone?
Advertisement

Buprenorphine is an opioid medication. Buprenorphine is similar to other opioids such as morphine, codeine, and heroin however, it produces less euphoric ("high") effects and therefore may be easier to stop taking.

Naloxone blocks the effects of opioids such as morphine, codeine, and heroin. If Suboxone is injected, naloxone will block the effects of buprenorphine and lead to withdrawal symptoms in a person with an opioid addiction. When administered under the tongue as directed, naloxone will not affect the actions of buprenorphine.

Suboxone is used to treat opiate addiction.

Suboxone may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
Important information about Suboxone

Suboxone can cause death from overdose, especially if it is injected with a tranquilizer. Use Suboxone exactly as directed by your doctor.
Suboxone can cause drug dependence. This means that withdrawal symptoms may occur if you stop using Suboxone too quickly. Withdrawal symptoms may also occur at the start of treatment due to dependence on another drug. Suboxone is not for occasional ("as needed") use. Do not stop taking Suboxone without first talking to your doctor. Your doctor may want to gradually reduce the dose to avoid or minimize withdrawal symptoms.

In an emergency, have family members tell emergency room staff that you are taking Suboxone and that you are dependent on opioids.
Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. Suboxone may cause drowsiness, dizziness, or impaired thinking. If you experience drowsiness, dizziness, or impaired thinking, avoid these activities. Avoid alcohol while taking Suboxone. Alcohol may dangerously increase drowsiness and dizziness caused by the medication.

Suboxone may dangerously increase the effects of other drugs that cause drowsiness, including antidepressants, alcohol, antihistamines, sedatives (used to treat insomnia), other pain relievers, anxiety medicines, and muscle relaxants. Tell your doctor about all medicines that you are taking, and do not take any other prescription or over-the-counter medicine, including herbal products, without first talking to your doctor.
Before taking Suboxone
Do not take Suboxone if:

*

the medication was not prescribed for you; or
*

you are allergic to buprenorphine, naloxone, or any components of the tablets.

Before taking Suboxone, tell your doctor if you have:

*

lung problems or difficulty breathing;
*

a head injury or brain problem;
* liver problems;
* kidney problems;
*

gallbladder problems;
*

adrenal gland problems, such as Addison's disease;
*

low thyroid (hypothyroidism);
*

enlarged prostate gland;
*

problems urinating;
*

a curve in the spine that affects breathing;
*

severe mental problems or hallucinations (seeing or hearing thing that are not really there); or
*

alcoholism.

You may not be able to take Suboxone, or you may require a dosage adjustment or special monitoring during treatment if you have any of the conditions listed above.
Suboxone is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether this medication will be harmful to an unborn baby. Use of this medication during pregnancy may cause withdrawal symptoms in a newborn baby. Do not take Suboxone if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. Suboxone passes into breast milk and may be harmful to a nursing baby. Do not take this medication if you are breast-feeding a baby.

The place in Middlesboro is EXPENSIVE!!---but they do require counseling, so that is one good point.
If you go on-line to www.suboxone.com you can search for drs. in the area. There are ones in Knoxville, Morristown, Barbourville.

There's even one in Knoxville that is running a commercial on the radio where all the staff and doctors are in recovery, too.

Good luck, and don't think it is a fast fix. You have to want to get better in order for it to work.

You might as well just keep buying your Lorcet or oxycontin. This medication is expensive and just provides another opiate high so what's the point? Most addicts just replace one addiction for another. This drug was not intended for long term use but it seems as though that's what is happening.

Suboxone does not make you high get your facts straight. And yeah it might be expensive but add up how much you spend getting high whats the difference?

If addicts were not getting some kind of good feeling from this drug then they wouldn't be using it. It is an opoid like so many other drugs and provides a feeling of euphoria but maybe on a lesser scale and is also addictive. I don't need to add up how much I spend on drugs because I'm smart enough not to start using to begin with. Tell me, how long do people use this drug to help them get off other drugs. This was not intended for long term use. As soon as they stop this so called treatment they will be back to using their regular drug of choice. Now go get your suboxone.

A person may be asking how much it[Soboxon] cost cuz it might just be they are on a fixed low income...I think it is a fair question. I would like to know myself cuz i am one of those low income People. I look at people bickering back and forth on here.It accomplishes nothing except bad feelings. Good luck to all.
