clonidine vs. subox

Can anyone tell me the differences? Pros and cons? Can a regular doctor prescribe subox?

A combo of clonidine and ativan works well  but needs to be administered by a doc. It kinds of put you to sleep for a few days or so and has no residule withdarwl like sub . all the best

I had a 15 norco a day habit, two at a time. I am on day 5 of clonidine, but am craving so badly that I just cry.  All these triggers. Getting in the car, before I eat, before I get out of bad. I just don't get out of bed anymore, but the WDs (sweating etc) are basically gone. I had this addiction for almost 10 years. I guess I have a bad reason for stopping, not really because I want to, but because it has gotten to be too difficult jugling doctors. I never bought off the street or online. Thought about it though.

No , you need a special doctor to prescribe sub.  Clonodine and Suboxone are extremely different.  Clonodine is a bp med that helps with withdrawal symptoms.   Suboxone does have opiate in it. It can be used for a quick detox or used long term.  Tell us more about you.  What are you taking and how much, how long ?  It will help us help you.
