    Default Suboxone - How long does it stay in the body

    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.

    I was wondering the same thing. Im on a pain management program and was prescribed suboxone to get me by until my doc got back from vacation. Took my last sub about 6 hours ago... how long before Perc/vic will be effective again. Thanks in advance for any help.

    P.S. If you are trying to get off pain killers: Suboxone is Amazing at relieving the withdrawl symptoms. A true life saver (at least that's my experience)

    Are you wanting to take a narcotic perscription?

    Try taking an OTC medication.. Such as motrin, Tylenol, Ect.. Narcotics aren't the only thing that works to relieve pain.. I used to have my mind set on Vicodin being the only pill that would help with my headaches, Untill I got addicted. Sure learned my lesson.. I'm clean now, But, Be careful. Once you take one pill, One pill of anything.. There's the chance of becoming an addict, Strange, isn't it?

    I advice you to not go on methadone.. And i'll tell you why.

    I am on methadone, Well right now i'm detoxing from it (My choice, I'm sick of taking it) And it's SO MUCH HARDER detoxing from than Vicodin, Than any opiate.. So before you get on methadone.. Please, Think about what will happen when you want to get off the methadone.. It's more addicting than vicodin, I'm sure.

    you could, but it prolly wont work for at least 24-48 hours...your best bet is ibuprophen until you start to feel the withdrawal symptoms from lack of sub, then the opiates should start working again

    Isn't it really dangerous to mix both vicodin and suboxone? Doesn't it say that if you do it could cause death? Or is that only if you take a sub and then turn around and take more vicodin? I'm so confused about this. I am also wondering about stopping the sub for now, since it's so expensive and take the vic for a while while we're on our trip next week for Thanksgiving.

    Let me say that i dont know your story so if you are taking subs for fun then stop reading.
    If you are taking the subs to WD from a narcotic habit then please dont stop for your VACATION. How long have you been on the subs?? Are you willing to start back at square one someday in the future? I know that the meds are costly, but your worth it! Stick with it and one day you will be drug free. All roads lead to HERE. Some have a longer scenic route and some cut straight there....which one are you on? I do wish you luck...stay strong.

    PS i say all of this because i too have been where you are....i do care...
