I'm on 10-20 mgs. of methadone a day. I thought about suboxone but I went 3 days w/o and a buddy gave me asuboxone 8mg. I put it under my tongue, but I never really felt any better. Did I not take enough? Did I take too much? I was told that I needed to take it for a few days straight b4 I'd notice anything. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Suboxone is indicated for: SUBOXONE and SUBUTEX are indicated for the treatment of opioid dependence.
Methadone is indicated for:
1. For the treatment of moderate to severe pain not responsive to non-narcotic analgesics.
2. For detoxification treatment of opioid addiction (heroin or other morphine-like drugs).
3. For maintenance treatment of opioid addiction (heroin or other morphine-like drugs), in conjunction with appropriate social and medical services.
It is not recommended to change/switch meds without seeking medical advice, hope the info helps?
