I waited 15 hours and thought i was in severe withdrawl but i still feel real bad. Maybe I started persipitated withdrawl, i do not know,.what should i do?
You probably are in precipitated withdrawal. You are not supposed to start suboxone until at least 24 hours and sometimes 36 to 48 after an opiate. The other opiate has to be off your receptor sites completely before the suboxone can get on them and make you feel better. I know you feel bad, get someone to come sit with you if you can so they can help you through this. You are going to have to wait several hours and next time, start with lots less suboxone, like 2 mill (1/4 of the pill) suboxone. It will take between 15 and 45 minutes after you have dissolved it under your tongue and you should feel relief. You still can't ignore that you have already taken 8 milligrams. If you are not feeling significantly better in 2 FULL hours, try another 2 milligrams. Doctors are really giving people too much suboxone. I was only on six lortab 10 and they tried to give me 16 milligrams and that was way too much. I have now gotten myself down from 12 milligrams( and that was too much but I didn't know that ) to 1 milligram and I feel fine for over 24 hours at the time.
hi william777, u started too soon from last time u did "H" you hafta wait at least 24 hrs before u start on suboxone. i have been on sub for 8 months. so i know a little about it. wait at least 24 to 48 hrs from the last u did "H"depending on how much dope u been doing and how meny times a day u did it. if it was a couple times a day u gotta give u system time to clean itself out. on the first day u do sub only start on 4mgs to see if u will still go into withdraw. if u do wait 12 more hrs before u take another half. when u first take it and u dont go into withdraw on half a pill. but u don't feel 4mg wait 15 -30 min and take the other half. when u start to feel your withdraw symptoms leaving your body "and u will start feeling the suboxone starting to work, thats the dose u need to be taking. i started on 4 but was told to take 8mgs in the morning. for me the morning dose worked for 6-8 hrs. tben i was givin 4mgs at 4pm. and thats the way i took it for the first week. the second week i stopped feeling sick in the afternoon. and my doc told me i could take 20mgs 10 in the morn and 10 in the afternoon. one thing i need to tell u is that i was on morphine 2x a day so my doc perscribed it that way. for pain management. but if it is perscribed for addiction it should oniy be taken 1 time a day. preferable in the morning,because it is supposed to last 24 hrs. hope this helps you. if u need to talk to someone drop me a text... subzero58... aka... pete
