how long does it take suboxone to get out of my system to where i can take the pain meds and they work. i know if i take the pains meds now, they wont alleviate the pain. i was in a car wreck today and fractured both ankles. i've been taking suboxone 8mg/day for a month. just need to know when it'd be safe to take the pain meds, when the suboxone would be out of my system, so i can get pain relief. any help? thanks.
