 5  Opioid Dependency I recently began exercising after a 5 year break and have been experiencing swollen hands & feet (edema). Given that I never experienced this prior to taking Zubsolv & it's a list s/e, I am assuming it is due to Zubsolv. A few weeks prior to starting Zubsolv, I began taking Lyrica (150mg-2X/day) for two severe disc herniations that I've been advised needed surgery. Less than a week into taking Zubsolv, I noticed that I didn't need to take the Lyrica as often as prescribed (same for ibuprofen). I may have started Zubsolv much earlier had I known that it would also provide some pain relief Duh to me!! as it does contain an opioid, afterall. For people concerned with or thinking that they simply cannot live w/o opioids due to their physical pain levels, Zubsolv may help some (not all) people more than they realize. The 2-3 week physical w/d symptoms from opioids is NOTHING compared to the mental anguish that doesn't resolve itself after 3 weeks. Zubsolv may be the answer to that; It was for me. For me, Zubsolv gave me back the "feeling normal" that, if you're reading this, you understand exactly what I mean. It's "feeling normal" w/o the "high/euphoria". I plan to continue taking Zubsolv until I have gotten a strong & firm grasp onto a strong, healthy and productive lifestyle that I can continue having as I taper down. Zubsolv is the only opioid disorder med I've ever had. I began looking at suboxone several months before actually making an appt with an addiction doc. After hearing my history, my truthful history, the doc I went to suggested Zubsolv stating that the patients he has served have had greater success with Zubsolv than with suboxone -- also saying it was a bit easier tapering and eventually stopping than suboxone. I have been able to stop taking opioids and going through and getting over the nasty physical w/ds and have even gone 14 months w/o slipping. I wasn't very productive during those months. In fact, I was miserable, absolutely miserable. Which led me back into the cycle again. I've tried without Zubsolv, and it's been a 100 times better with it. I have the mental "normalcy" that was ALWAYS missing. If your contemplating taking it, I fully recommend you go for it. If you tried in the past to live, I mean really LIVE after your physical w/d symptoms have stopped, but you were also depressed and in despair, I think zubsolv may be your answer. Once my family did their own research and saw how it helped me, they got on board -- initially, they thought it was just another chemical I was "using". FYI, Most doctors who prescribe this will initially only prescribe it one week at a time for the first 4 weeks to see how you do on it & to make sure you're actually committed to getting sober. Then, they'll do 2 weeks for another month, and then more F 49 4 months

 2  Substance Abuse I feel so suppressed on this medication. Fatigue, stomache pain, full muscle aches, sweats at night so bad it soaks through my clothes and bed sheets blankets pillow litterally everything is drenched, I feel dizzy sometimes and just out of it, I feel sick after 6 hours of taking it and it has been a nightmare. I have been sober for 14 months because of it on the good side but also my dr has not believed me that the medication is causing it. F 30 14 months

 5  Opiate dependence Same as suboxone, just follow directions. Equally effective. Better taste F 27 14 days
 2  Withdrawal Won't stay under tongue. Not as strong as strips. Can't ween yourself down. The medication in it needs to be better regulated to really match 8mgs. Better absorption for people with dental issues. F 55 5 days
 5  opiate dependent Worked great, but when it was time to stop horrible w/d for 2 weeks F 44 6 months

ZUBSOLV  (BUPRENORPHINE HYDROCHLORIDE; NALOXONE HYDROCHLORIDE):  This medication contains 2 medicines: buprenorphine and naloxone. It is used to treat opioid (narcotic) dependence/addiction. Buprenorphine belongs to a class of drugs called mixed opioid agonist-antagonists. Buprenorphine helps prevent withdrawal symptoms caused by stopping other opioids. Naloxone is an opioid antagonist that blocks the effect of opioids and can cause severe opioid withdrawal when injected. It has little effect when taken by mouth or dissolved under the tongue. It is combined with buprenorphine to prevent abuse and misuse (injection) of this medication. This combination medication is used as part of a complete treatment program for drug abuse (such as compliance monitoring, counseling, behavioral contract, lifestyle changes).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
