Hey KriBOB, I answered this a few questions ago, but I guess I didn't see this one. Wait about 24 hours before starting subs after your last perc. Google the COWS sheet ( clinical opiate withdrawal scale) and you should hit a 26 about 24 hours after last dose, and then you can safely start subs. Haven't seen ya here in a while, hope that things go well. Please let us know how you are. Patti

Good deal, and you only took 1 mg of subs, that is also why you probably had no problems. Some people take up to 16 mgs when they have only waited a brief time and they can really go into precip. I am glad you let us know how you are, we really do care around here.
