I think I'm one of the very few, if any other, on here that takes Suboxone. I wanted off of pain medication all together, thats why I'm on it, but in the process I found that it helps my pain wonderfully. I get mine from an addiction specialist. And as far as I know, you arnt suppose to be able to take any other narcotic with Suboxone, including fentanyl, but I could be wrong, I'm not a doctor. It's not FDA approved for pain, but Bupernorphine the main ingredient is coming out with patches meant just for chronic pain, so bupernorphine is indeed a narcotic pain killer, but right now Suboxone and subutex is the only ones I know about
thats being used in the US. I know alot of doctors are starting to use it off label for pain control cause they love the fact that people cant abuse or build a tolerence to it, and they even sometimes, very rarely use it for depression. And on another forum I go to thats just for Suboxone/Subutex users, theres a few people that had to withdrawal off of fentanyl to be put on Suboxone/Subutex. But my favorites things aobut it is the fact that you dont have to wait more then 15 minutes for it to take effect, and that I can skip a dose or two before it starts to wear off since it has such a long half life. well in case you need more information, the NAABT has a websight and a forum with lots and lots of information on Suboxone.
