AN, YOUR correct. I never had any experiences with sub x other then for addiction. It was used only as a therapy for drug abuse or the narcan to prevent anaphylactic shock in allergic reactions to opiates an heroin od.
The early info we received on the suboxone,I suppose it was, the 1st,was the narcan prevented any pain relieving elements in the med. Was not a potentially useful med in the treatment of chronic pain due to the inability to use b/t meds with it and the amount of time it takes to get the narcan out of your bloodstream therefore having to delay surgical procedures.
I did hear later long after leaving nursing that they had redesigned the med in the form of subutex for use in some patients who ran risks of having to have surgical procedures or reactions to the narcan.
I am however a longtime methadone user for CP and cannot take any of the meds were talking about
for they all would cause serious w/ds and I would need many days to clear my system of methadone 1st.
I had a Dr give me nubaine claiming he didn't know it would cause w/d in pts on methadone.
My concerns for Randy is his Drs have kept him on the high side of every med they tried an this is no different. He is facing several surgeries how will that play out?
He might have had better luck way back on the methadone had they not over loaded that too. 270 is far more then needed for most,now that options shot as his tolerance is off the charts.
If I'm sounding a little angry,your right,like I said,the drs got him here an this is their answer.
