I was on methadone 90 mgs and tapered to 30mgs because I wanted to switch to suboxone. I had to go threw a hellish 48 hours. Your not suppose to take anything 48 hours befor your first suboxone dose or you'll go into sever withdrawals. As my doctor said. Suboxone wasn't right for be but I hope all goes well with you. Good luck!
Oh yeah forgot. The longer your clean the better the subs will work!
Also the longer your clean the better the subs will work. Your withdrawal needs to be in full effect
Everything that Psychobillyqueen posted is 100% CORRECT...... You have to go in there sick..
Okay. Did he give you Subutex or Suboxone? Have you taken it already? When was your last dose of H?
I wouldn't mess with the Sub before Monday. You don't want to do anything to interfere with the induction he'll be doing.
I just ran out of H. Was starting to feel crappy. So i took a Buprenorphine. Thats what the bottle said. Felt better. but i doubt it will last until mon. I will have a chance to take another opiate to help withdrawal tomorrow (WED) thru (SAT). but my question is even though im starting to feel the w/d again if i take a opiate the Buprenorphine will cancel it out. sorta like why waste the money. how long before a opiate will have a effect on me if i took the bup today?
That's true. But, did you run out of H today? When was your last dose? You took 8mg of Bup or 2? Just curious about this...
To answer your other question, this is what I know to be true: Bup has a very long half life AND is eliminated at different rates with everyone. So, any opiate may not work and it would be a waste OR you'd keep taking pills until you felt something and you'd get sick...
ran out of H yesterday morn. took the bup today in the morning, 8 mg sublingual. felt ok most of day. i can wait till tomorrow morning. but if i wake up "sick" tomorrow and have a chance to feel better with a bag of H. will the Buprenorphine block it after 24 hours? if it will then i will not do the H why waste the money. I will call out and hide in bed even though i can t afford to. but i will be no good at work.
I know but if you go in with any chemicals in your system you will regret it! Only advil or ibprophine!
You know what? I don't know what to tell you. I'm surprised you didn't get sick with that 8mg. Is it Subutex? Were you feeling any withdrawal when you took it?
1 bup should not completely cancel out other opiates.... If you took a bunch and then took the opiate then it would...
