Hi, I am concerned about interactions between certain perscription medications. What does it mean if a drug inhibits another drug? For instance, I am prescribed suboxone and while doing some research found on the SAMSA website that prilosec can inhibit suboxone? Does that mean there would be more active amounts of suboxone in the bloodstream, thus causing an increase of effects? I need to know because I am tapering off and also want to be safe. I also am learning as much as I can, as I am graduating from Penn State this May with a B.A. in Psychology and I plan to further my education with a master s degree in addictions counseling, or a master s in social work (MSW) or something of that nature because I want to work with clients who have substance abuse issues. Also, is it true that it has also been inadvertently discovered that suboxone (more likely the buprenorphine component itself) helps alleviate symptoms of depression in some people? I know it is not used for the treatment of depression in the U.S. but about 7 or 8 months ago I was doing some research and found that they were conducting studies in Israel to test the effectiveness of buprenorphine in treating individuals with Major Depressive Disorder . I can t remember how I came across that, but it was a reliable source (I know the difference and am currently doing my own research project at PSU). Any information would be greatly appreciated. One more thing, why isn t suboxone or buprenorphine approved for the treatment of moderate to severe pain? It is supposed to be 10-20 times more potent than morphine as an analgesic but far less addictive.

Hello! I was year and half on methadone 5 ml, 6 months 2,5 ml, than 2 months 1,5 ml. Today is first time I took suboxone 2 mg. The doctor gave me 2 x 2 mg pill for home and said me if i haven t got any problems should take 1 after 3-4 hours. Well, i didn t take any more, cuz i was ok. now is 13 hours after frist doze, and for about 12 hours i m felling little dozen, and i m not shure if 2 mg is maybe too much or not at all enough or it is perfect. So, I need to ask you how can i know whitch doze is right for me? Nika, slovenija
