Since subutext doesn't have narcon in it I thought it didn't matter. I know when I had my daughter 3 years ago they had me taking subutext and oxycodone at the same time. And I was al given dilaudid during my c-secion.

Listen to Moyte, I was told 48 hours also. Precipitated withdrawal is scary, so be careful and make sure you tell your Dr. when your last dose was.
