I have been on suboxone at 8-12 mg for 3 n a half months and i need to know how long until i can take an oxy cause after all I've read I'd much rather withdrawal from oxy than sub plus i can't afford it anymore
You can take the oxy at anytime after the suboxone, it will not make you sick. You get sick when you take Suboxone too soon after oxy, not the other way around. That being said, you won't need the oxy for several days as the Suboxone remains on the receptor sites for 3 to 5 days after the last dose.
Just wanted to mention that you run a big risk going back to the oxy as opposed to just tapering off the Suboxone. Going back to the oxy could lead you down the path of abusing opiates again. Of course the choice is yours, just thought you might want to reconsider.
hi i took suboxone for about 3 years before i went to rehab... but to answer your question you can take an oxy right after you do a suboxone but it will be a waste because the suboxone has an opiod blocker in it so you will not feel it... that goes for any pain killer if you try and take it... but if you wanna feel it you will have to wait about 48 hours... maybe a little longer or a little less but for me it was always about 2 days... k hopefully i answered your question...
It all depends on HOW MUCH SUB YOU'RE TAKING... I know I was taking a 1/2 sub everyday and 26 hours later after taking roxys I was able to get almost the full effect..Not condoning what i did... DID JUST STATING FACTS ... If this is a medical situation you wouldn't be here online asking... you'd get the answer from your Dr. so I can only assume everyone posting this is here on the sly...
I actually joined this site because I have the same question about how long should I wait to take these 5 mg oxycodones. I took an 8 mg sub strip about 49 hrs ago, but had also to taken a sub earlier that day. So, can I take the oxys with results? Like will I feel it probably should I wait?
Honestly there not lieing when everything is based on metabolism, ect. I did a 8mg strip then the next day 8 hrs later I did a Roxy 30mg I got incredibly sick and went through Insta withdrawals. Mind you that was only taking that 1 sub out of the whole year as I rarely take those. The next time I took it I waited at least 24 hrs I did a tiny bit of OxyContin just to see how it would effect me. It didn't make me sick but the euphoria was reduced quite abit. So I wait another day out this time I felt the euphoria 60% more then normal but still not the same effect. The next day I do it I get the full euphoria effect. So for me doing a 8mg strip no matter how much or when I do it. To get a full euphoric effect I'm waiting 72 hrs no matter what.
