subonoxe- well i started them yesterday. my doctor told me that they have a blocker in them so i can't use, it will make me sick. now how true this is i don't know or even care to find out. i don't want to be sick.
he said subutex doesn't have the blocker in it, it just has the bup in it. so you can use but you need to use enough to over ride the bup.
i don't know if this is all right, its just what he told me.
good luck to you in whatever you choose to do.

Hi freestyler, Morph and I have found exactly the same thing with subutex. They work pukka the first time, but when you've been back on the gear, you do start to notice some cluck. The good news is this is temporary. I'm back on the sub for 5 days now, and I have to say that I'm gouching. I am on some pretty heavy anti-psychotics so that dopes me out a bit, but I felt pretty crappy for the first 3 days back on the sub. Yesterday I felt normal and today I feel smashed. Stick with it. You already know that the only difference between subutex and suboxone is that you can't whack the suboxone up. And believe me, whacking up subutex takes luck, courage and a large degree of stupidity. I know. I've done it.

You'll be fine.

Hey Diff,

I have until the end of March to decide if I want to switch from meth to sub. Let's see, what i am hearing is that with subutex, it's better for cravings and with suboxone if you do relapse it will make you sick b/c the antagonist in it drops you WHAM? Why would anyone want to break down subs anyway? Does it even have any opiate characteristics? It has the ceiling effect, right? Is it considered an opiate?

We are just now getting a doc in our area who will prescribe them. I am unsure. Since I've been on meth I have only used gear 3 times or so. (that's in 4 yrs) But I have had a prob with the meth. Esp. liquid. It's kicked my a** worse than h even. Luckily, I don't have to do it everyday. I'm thinking I need a change.

so glad you're back,

Dear HG, injecting subutex kind of brings on a warm gouchy feeling. But it is pretty risky. Don't recommend it. Suboxone has naloxone in which negates this effect. All the literature I have on it says it's an opiate, but my drug-worker tells me it's not a true opiate. I'm not sure.

best wishes

It's not so much that you can't bang up suboxone, the real difference between the two which is very vital is that suboxone contains naltraxone ontop of the bup. Everyone should no the risk/pain with doing gear ontop of naltraxone. The naltraxone is designed to make you very very sick if there's any opiates in your body, be very very careful. p.s anyone know if theyv'e actually introduced suboxone over here in England yet, last time I was at my ddu they said it was just to expensive and wouldn't even give me subutex.
Freestyler- don't totaly beleive what they say about the blocker bit. Subutex isn't a complete blocker unfortunately, until your taking over 8mg and then iv'e used over that and overidden the sub. Still as diff said you gotta be crazy/lucky trying out these so called sub /gear cocktails. I to have to get my sub's on the street. So raerea your dr was pretty much straight up with you, for a change,they usually scare people into beleiving it's going to completly block any effects la de da de da etc etc.
Subs is temgesic, nothing new about it, nothing fancy about, just instead of.2mg you get 8mg or similar but at the end of the day it's temgesic, a painkiller, just a much higher dose.
Sub's are classed as an opiate, but with both agonist and antagoinst properties, basically menaing they do block/ they don't. Can't comment much on the chemical side of it.
Freestyler pity you couldn't get any weed, bundles over here in but I know what you mean it can take 2 min's to score gear and 1/2 a day for a bit of puff. I don't suppose it was lofexidine you were reffering to earlier in one of your posts which can be used in treatment but not as popular or effective as sub's but still worth investigating.
Anyway there's a bit of info there which may or may not be of any use to anyone, but whatever I wish you all the best whatever stage everyone's at. Lots of respect going out there.

Actually many people are confusing Naloxone (Narcan) with Naltrexone (Revia).

Subutex = buprenorphine

Suboxone = buprenorphine + naloxone.

Because Suboxone is dissolved under the tongue, the body receives none of the naloxone and all of the buprenorphine. If injected however, the Naloxone reverses the effect of the buprenorphine. It is the exact same drug that paramedics give to someone who overdoses on opiates (eg heroin).

So injecting Suboxone means you get none of the opiate effect and therefore have wasted that dose.

I hope this clears things up

He Freestyler, you and me both. I've been eking this ten spot out for the last 24 hrs. I went to pick up some money this morning and I meet this guy at the bank who tells me he's got gear if I want it, but could I get him any draw? The girl I get my draw off ain't answering her phone. I can get heroin on every street corner, but it's dry as f*** where draw's concerned!

Just take the medicine to get better. Dont consider shooting it up because that defeats the purpose! Wake up! It is supposed to stop you from getting high. If you want to get high why bother.

Hi I know these posts are old but for anyone new looking 8ml subutex has a blocker/opiate antagonist whereas the smaller doses don't! This is why everyone posting has had bad withdrawal symptoms when doing gear before taking an 8ml but had no problems with 2ml or smaller
