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!
