I was doing about 160 to 360mgs of oxys and was able to kick the habit using less than a quarter of a sub per day for about a week and i used the sub about 8 hours after using, now I am trying to kick H and I waited 12 hours and took half a sub and went into precipitated w/d why does this happen? as of tomorrow I will try this again I have to make sure i take the right amount of sub at the right time, I am doing this on my own, well my husband and I, without a dr. i have read many posts and i know about the COWS worksheet. I last used about an hour ago, I am pretty sure I will have to stay home from work tomorrow and Thursday but will I be able to work Friday? What should we expect over the next couple days? Thanks for any answers/advice/encouragement
You could have went into w/d because you took the suboxone to soon after taking ( H ).
If you use the cow worksheet you should wait untill you score a 26 before taking the suboxone. It is very important to be honest when checking your score, if you are not at or above 26 on the worksheet you may have pre/w/d . You could start with a small amount of sub and increase a small amount every hour untill you dont feel any w/d. I really think that you need to go to the forum and read about ROBERT 325 he has a very good taper plan for the suboxone, good luck and i will be praying for you.
IF you don't score a 26 on the COWS worksheet it's almost a guarantee for precipitated wd. Here is a link for the worksheet.
I, too, will have you in my prayers. I have absolutely no experience w/ H. I tried it once and threw up so many times, I never wanted it again. I have tried so many times in the last 5 years to kick hydrocodone and never stuck with anything til Suboxone. I have been clean since 8-6-09 and the best thing is it took away all my desires to even try the hydro. again. God has helped alot too. Talk to Him. He really does care and wants you to succeed and live a happy life. Good luck!
