been done with the subs. I relapsed the last two days and have taken 4 30 mg. roxys in the past two days. I will not be taking anymore, but will I go through withdrawls over again now since I just stopped taking the suboxone a week ago?
I was taking suboxone for a week to avoid withdrawls from opiates. It has been a week since I have?

I was taking suboxone for a week to avoid withdrawls from opiates. It has been a week since I have been done with the subs. I relapsed last night and this morning and have taken 4 30 mg. roxys since last night. I will not be taking anymore, but will I go through withdrawls all over again even if I don't take anymore since I just stopped taking the suboxone a week ago?

....but I felt no withdrawls at all the whole week after I stopped the suboxone
Let me first share that one week on Suboxone is not enough time to "heal" the brain and retrain the mind. My doctor recommends being on it at least 3 to 6 months minimum. Along with the Suboxone therapy when prescribed by a doctor, the patient is suppose to get counseling so to learn the tools necessary to stay clean. It is a two part program: one to heal the physical, the other to heal the mental.
That being shared, you may experience some disconfort from the opiate use. You in fact may experience withdrawals from the previous opiate use from before being on the Suboxone as you really weren't on the Suboxone long enough to prevent withdrawals upon stopping it. Is that why you relapsed? Were you feeling withdrawals? You might want to reconsider starting the Suboxone again. You'll need to wait the appropriate amount of time from your last dose of roxy so to prevent precipitated withdrawals. I can share the following to help you:
I was addicted to oxycontin and pretty much any pills i could get my hands on... I have been taking suboxone for 2 years and im not ready to stop and that's ok. If you are having problems relapsing them maybe you need treatment or perhaps to be put back on suboxone. There is no shame to be on them long enough to get you rlife back.I dont think you will go through withdrawl but it's the cravings that are hard to stop... i wish you good luck and if you want to talk sometime that would be great.
