Question: I have had issues with opiates. My girlfriend had a script originally for subutex and gave me a few it worked great. She was changed to suboxone and gave me a few which made me extremely moody—depressed actually. Is there anyway to get an online subutex prescription?

Brief Answer:
Unfortunately No

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

Unfortunately, suboxone, as well as Subutex, are highly regulated medications and none them is available online stores and a prescription isn't possible either.

Although you may get multiple links over the internet they are either adulterated or fake products.

So it will be better if you can see a deaddiction specialist for a prescription.

I hope this answers your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Thanks again.

I used to be a heroin addict. I was prescribed suboxone for 2 or 3 months by an excellent psychiatrist. I am now clean and have been for almost a year. The porblem is that I have been diagnosed with lymphoma. The pain is pretty intense, and I have 3 lymph nodes suspected to be cancerous, all are very painful. 2 separate growths have not been fully evaluated, and are not painful. The prescription monitoring program shows my doctors that I have been prescribed suboxone in the passed, and Ive already told my doctors about my passed addiction anyway. Now because of the suboxone, I cannot recieve pain medications. If I can, the doctors I have been to do not feel comfortable giving it to me. My problem is that the pain is so intense that I need a pain medication to be able to live day to day. I cant do normal things such as walk my dog, go any places that require long periods of walking... etc. Its also worth noting that I have chosen not to recieve chemo, or radiation therapy. I cant afford it, plus I dont want to live the last year or so of my life too nauseous to be happy in the case that chemo does not work. Doctors do not want to do surgery, they say the risk of the cancer spreading is to great being that I am not receiving treatment. My question to you: What do I do? Tramadol is all my doctor is willing to prescribe and that does absolutely nothing for me. Ive been on a full range of NSAIDs in every safe dosage and I have had no relief. Am I going to have to suffer until I die? Or should I find a new doctor?

I m 31 years old, 5 8 , 250lbs. My BP is on yhr high side, usually around 150/87. I take 8mg of Suboxone Film daily, and have for about 5 years. I was on Subutex for most of that time actually, I switched to the Films about 4 months ago because that is what my insurance will cover. I also suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder. About 6 months ago I begin to experience a sense of pressure and discomfort in my upper chest, slightly left and above of where of my heart is and severe pain in my mid back plus mild light headedness. I kind of feel off kilter, like I have the flu. Concerned and anxious, I went to the ER, worried about my heart. I was given blood tests, a chest X-Ray, EKG, and ECG, all of which came back normal. I was told it was probably something muscular in nature and that the lightheadedness was anxiety. That was 3 months ago and still the pain in the chest and back are still here, and the lightheadedness has only gotten more severe. Now I have also begun to develop headaches which seem to radiate from different points in my head, but are very severe. I also experience extreme senses of pressure in my head accompanied by a rushing sound in my ears if I stand up quickly. Recently, I ve also begun experiencing attacks in which it is hard to breath, or like I have to breath very deliberately. They pass quickly, but it is quite disconcerting. I m aware that several of these symptoms are known side effects of Suboxone, but I ve been on it for years and never experienced anything like these. The symptoms did show up around the time I switched to the films, but it seems very severe and long lasting for a side effect of switching. I know that anxiety can also cause a lot of these symptoms, but I don t feel anxious at all. My family and friends are quick to blame my anxiety, but I m not so sure or perhaps a pinched nerve. I want to go get an MRI, but already have racked up lots of hospital bills from the previous visits to check my heart. What could these symptoms be, or are they caused by unrelated issues?

I'm on 12 mg of suboxone, abs I've noticed if I try to sleep while I'm hungry, I wake gasping for breath. I do have numerous Stomache problems, could it just be gas or such making me feel like I can't breath ? I'm never panting and I don't snore. I do smoke,higher weight from recent birth
