I was taking 20mg of methadone daily. My last dose was 36 hours ago. I went to a Dr. and got my first weeks dose of Suboxone today. He would have given me my first dose right there in the office but I didn't have anyone to drive me home so my Dr. sent me home with them and said to take the 1st dose somewhere after dinner time. I have read so many horror stories about taking it too early. I am definately going through withdrawals but they haven't gotten too bad yet. I would like to know how long anybody else waited to take their 1st dose, specifically going from methadone to Suboxone. Thanks!
Going from methadone to suboxone is great im very excited for you i heard it is easier to get off suboxone than it is methadone. Me peronally ive tried methadone before and i found it to be very helpful ive never tried suboxone but there is truth in what you are saying. Yes your gonna wanna wait to start on the suboxone i think you need to be in full on withdrawls before you start. Sounds like you are on the right track though and good luck to you i hope all goes well.
