Hello & welcome. How far along are you in your pregnancy?
Have you seen your suboxone doctor since you found out you were pregnant?

See your doctor. Ask this question. I infer that you are buying street sbox? Don’t be scared to be honest. I have been to clinics AND purchased on the street for almost a decade. I (age 40) have dealt with your situation personally in the past few years...three times. The biggest risk with the Suboxone (I infer 2 x 8mg tabs a day) that’s 4 mgs total of naloxone. Naloxone’s blocking effects lasts for approximately 8 hours. The fear is that the mother to be will take an opioid along with the priorly dosed Suboxone, thus triggering the blocker (naloxone), sending the mother and unborn into severe detox...which brings with it a HIGH risk of miscarriage. As we all know on this board...tex goes for at least $40 per 8mg dose....where Suboxone goes for an average of $20/dose in the street. It is simply the only way we can keep ourselves out of total detox...which is what you need to focus on. Your first success was getting on here and asking the right question. Don’t wait any longer to seek a professional opinion on what is best for you and your baby. Medicare (ObamaCare) is available to ALL expectant mothers NATIONWIDE. Contact me for further assistance, I would love to help you figure out your options. Thank you for being brave and caring about your precious child!!
