How many days before procedue? I have read the they use fetanyl after the procedure for discomfort and that could be a problem?
First of all I would like to congradulate you on you life change. Sub. is a big step and you should be proud.
As for the Colonoscopy, You need to talk this over with your Gastro. physician so he/she can make any medicine changes in your procedure. Please do not stop the Suboxone till told to do so. If your Gastro. doctor says stop it, tell your Addiction Physician so both Physicians can work together.
Thanks guys. I am actually down to 8mg a day now and would like to stop all together. I am apprehensive about going lower than 8 but need to do it for peace of mind. Any ideas on how to proceed from here? I abused narcs after surgery, not recreationally, so this all kind of blind sided me. Anyway, thanks!
