    I'm scared to death because I didn't filtrate 
    #1
    Today I was in a hurry, so I didn't filtrate my two buprenorphine pills. I didn't miss, it didn't hurt or anything like that, but I'm still really scared now.

    What should I do?

    at this point, there's not much you can do.

    just remember how much this has you worried, so you don't repeat it.

    ..and if you ever plan to IV any sort of pills again, get yourself some micron filters

    yes, pills contain inactive, insoluble ingredients which can cause you a lot of harm if you don't filter them properly.
    not only can you damage your circulatory system, but particles can get lodged in your lung tissue and elsewhere and cause problems.
    it is very, very dangerous to filter with only cotton if you are injecting pills. it isn't safe, and can cause serious health issues and complications.
    if you insist on injecting buprenorphine, the only remotely safe way of doing it is to filter with a micron or wheel filter.
    you can get these online or from needle exchanges.

    i really can't emphasise enough how important this is. if you use the search engine about shooting bupe or subutex, i'm sure you'll find a lot of people and stories backing this up.
    suboxone/subutex strips are reportedly especially harmful due to one of the inactive ingredients contained in the medium.
    cotton only filters a small proportion of insolubles - not enough to make it safe.

    Thank you for your answers, but it sucks that regular cotton doesn't do the job. I really can't get my hands on needle exchange filters right now.

    I'm sure they are available online. I don't know how cheap/expensive they are since I don't IV but all you need is cash to buy a prepaid VISA card at your local gas station, pharmacy, megastore, and you can order them and have em sent right to you. This is assuming you don't have a credit/debit card, if so skip the VISA.

    Be safe

    Well, the reason I can't get these filters is not economical. I'm at a home for recovering addicts, and there is just no way to get filters here, except getting a friend to drive 100 miles for me.

    I.have.IVd.pills.since.forever.and.never.got.any.p roblems.at.all.as.long.as.i.dont.miss. Idk wtf happened the space just stopped working.

    Will the problems just show up one day after several hundred of days with no problems at all?

    I've had terrible abcesses, but only from missing the vein.

    maybe if you are in a home for recovering addicts you should try and take the medicine sublingual or as prescribed.

    as spacejunk states, there is nothing you can do now other than using micron filters in the future IF YOU INSIST ON THIS.

    What's the difference between these so called "micron filters" and regular cotton?

    I'm pretty sure you can have them shipped to a PO box at your local post office. Or if you know anyone who has an apartment or house in the area just ask them politely to have them shipped there.

    At least roll them tightly, and make several of them. Use one, draw up solution, dispose of that filter, and put a fresh one in your cap/spoon. Squirt your suboxone back in cap, spoon, and repeat this process 3/4 times. Cotton swab filters are preferable to cigarette filters.

    Stiil advise against doing this, ime with IV bupe nearly every time you "miss" even a couple MG's of your shot you'll have a nasty abscess a few days later.

    Have a clean, new needle, at least your odds of missing aren't as high with fresh equipment.

    Do you have counselors at the recovery house or access to one? My best advice is to talk about your addiction and why you feel the need to inject the pills that are meant to get you well. Otherwise, you're going to have a hard time getting clean.
