Dear GR, welcome to the site. It depends on how long you have been on it and how high a dose. A dose of 4 mgs once wuld only block for 1 to 3 days, a dose of 16 mgs or more will block for 3 to 5 days. A word of caution, if you are trying to get rx opiate pain meds to work again, taking more will not make you feel it faster. Suboxone has to wear off and make room for the opiate on the receptor site for you to feel the opiate again.

When I switched from Suboxone to Methadone, I was on 20 mgs of Subs a day. I took my regular morning sub dose, 12 mgs. 12 hours later I took 30 mgs of Methadone, and I felt it. The next morning I took 30 mgs more and I felt it even more. So, it was blocking it some, but not totally. Infact, the next morning, 24 hours after my last Sub dose, it didn't seem to be blocking it at all.
