clean for the past 3 years in the middle of April I came across some pills n for some stupid reason took them. Ever since it's been off two the races. I did vics & percs until the end of May then made the jump to the blue 30 mg Roxys. Now I'm up to 15-20 roxys a day blowing them. I went to the doctor got suboxone but I don't no how long I should wait to take them bc every1 says something different. The doctor told me to just wait a few hours which I new was total bs. The other day I took 8 roxys at 2pm n woke up around 9am and was going to take the suboxone but felt like I wasn't sick enough. I am trying to do this without my family noticing I relapsed bc I no how crushed they would be. What symptoms should I have before I take the subs and will the subs kill all the withdrawals or will I still feel sick? Any advice would be more then greatly appreciated. One last thing how bad could the withdrawals be if I have only been getting high again for 4 months after being totally clean for two years? And should I start with 2mg of sub or 4mg of subs and increase as needed.
Dear mikeyboyyyy, you will need to wait at least 24 hours after you last opiate use and score at least a 26 on the COWS sheet, you can Google the clinical opiate withdrawal scale to find a copy of the quiz. If you did what your dr said, you would have gone into a horrible form of withdrawal called precipitated withdrawal. And he shouldn't have just given you the rx, he is supposed to monitor your first dose, some drs monitor you on the second dose also. Not a good sign this dr knows what he is doing with subs. Anyway, take 2 mgs at first, you know to dissolve it under your tongue, right. Wait at least 2 hours before deciding you need more. Try not to take it past 2:30 or 3 pm, and if you have to take the second 2 mgs a bit later, that is ok.
