... daily. I ran out 4 days early and a friend gave me 2mg suboxone tabs to get me through til my new rx is filled. If I take 4mg a day for 4 days will i be able to go back on my normal rx right away and will it work. is there like a 24hr period the pain relief wont work? The suboxone really helped the withdrawal but Im in alot of pain. ( I will never take too many again its not worth it!) Please help me with these questions if you can thanks
