i got off methadone 4 mths ago and started taking suboxone 3 mths ago i only take 5 mgs of sub, i recently heard if u wait 24 hrs u can take an opiate and feel it, last night i got the the yuks and decided to try it. i felt nothing and now i'm panicking and afraid i can't take my suboxone and now i'm gonna get caught up in the cycle again. the suboxone alone has worked better tahn anything else i've tried especially combined with a recovery program and i dont want to mess that up. thank u
DON"T take the suboxone that close to methadone, the methadone is also a long acting opiate replacement and you will probably go into precipitated withdrawal, which means really really really bad withdrawal. Although you didn't take alot of methdadone, it will stay in your system for at least 24 hours, wait until you are off of the methdaone for at least 24 hours, I think you should actually wait 36. When there is any other medicine on the receptor sites, the suboxone and the other med fight for the space and it actually cancels both out and you go into major withdrawal. Try taking just 2 mgs when you do take it to see how you feel 2 hours after, if you feel bad, you need to wait more time.
