This is kind of a late response to your question, but I wanted you to know that the Suboxone is a long acting medication that will prevent the other opiate like oxycontin from working. So if you are taking the oxycontin shortly after the suboxone, the oxy won't work. The real concern is taking the suboxone after taking oxycontin. Suboxone is really to be taken for opiate detox and must be taken after you are in withdrawal from the oxycontin, otherwise you run the risk of what is called precipitated withdrawals which are very uncomfortable to say the least. Please do not mix these two medications.
