    Does anyone know the name of the medicine that you can take that will help you get off of narcotics and opiates.It is something to the effect of sublex or similar to that name.I'm going to see my doctor tomorrow and in the near future I'm going to try and get off those particular medicines soon.
    This is a wonderful place to come,the people here are awesome and so helpful
    Thankyou

    I did a little searching but haven't found what you are looking for yet.

    This will at least bump your message back to the top.

    Take care,

    Subutex is the brand name and suboxone is the generic.

    I don't know the medicine you are referring to but some possible methods I have heard of:

    a. Tapering the dose you are on slowly off
    b. Getting an anesthesiologist or pain specialist involved - I think they have some specialized methods or knowledge of specific meds

    Either of these should involved your current MD.
