How soon can you take Methadone after taking Subutex?

Ive been taking methadone for a year and had my last dose of 10ml a week ago after dropping down quite quickly.  On tuesday I started Subutex.  Ive taken 7mg altogether in the last 3 days with my last dose being 6pm last night (16 hours ago).  I feel miles away and have a fuzzy head aswell as a pounding headache.  Ive had to take time off work as I feel like this.  No yawning or diarhoea etc though which is good but I feel like  **** in general.  Im tempted to go back on methadone just to feel normal again but dont know when is a good time to.  Do I have to wait until Subutex are out my system or not?

You should discuss your specific detox regimen with the doctor that's prescribing the medications for you as he or she is more familiar with your care.
