they pretty much have to be prescribed.

first of all the whole question is a bit odd since suboxone is meant for weaning. typically it's tapering is slow and the problem is that the withdrawal symptoms are so very mild they cannot be distinguished from just minor symptoms that people have anyway.

clonidine for agitation
Imodium for nausea and
so grab for nausea
