Pamela thats a great idea I think everyone should have when you take important meds to have that info on you at all times. With suboxone I have to have one, my doctor gave me a card to carry in my wallet with his name and number and info for providers in case of an emergency cause Suboxone has Naloxone in it and giving me a regualur dose of narcotics would just be blocked and certain ones could throw me into severe withdrawals, their was even one guy my doctor told me about
that went into seizures. I also bought a braclet that you can take the band off of and tie it in your shoe laces. But it scares me to know that Suboxone is not a very known med and lots of doctors dont know that it can be dangerous to mix it with the certain meds. So I always have this fear that I will be in a terrible accident and need surgery and they cant knock me out for surgery or I will be in so much pain. I just hope that if something happens to me that the doctor's and nurses will be smart enough to do their research and treat me right. I know that if I ever need to scheadule any surgery I have to withdrawal off of the Suboxone, which I hope I wont have to have surgery till I'm completly off of it. But everyone should carry their info with them ALWAYS and tell a close friend or relative what your taking so they can tell the doctor's if your unable to.
