I have a doctors appt tomorrow at 11am I have been taking 30-37 mg percs per day for close to a year how long must I be off to take the subs.
for short acting opiates like lortab or percocet, approximately 24 hours. This prevents a condition called precipitated withdrawal from setting in. Precip occurs when there is any opiate on the receptor sits in the brain when suboxone attempts to 'sit down' on them. I know 24 hours seems like a long time, but within 20 to 45 minutes after you first subs dose, you will feel great, so it will all be worth it.
