First of all, a few ?s. What do u mean "to bottles short"?, Also- how long have u been on methadone? 90 mgs is way too high to switch, I would recommend 30 mgs or lower. To switch to Subs, you have to be in full blown w/ds (at least 3 days) The Thomas Recipe will help with that. You can google it or find it @ this site. If and when u do get on Suboxone, it is imperative u follow the Induction as conceived by Robert325,also on this site. Just go to the "Need to talk" forum and u will find the proper way to get on and off the subs. Please get back to us and let us know what u decide. Be well, Julie
Not a good idea at all to use suboxone till you can get on the methadone they are not exactly the same and i advise you not to do this. You have to slowly move on to suboxone and suboxone is a little less potent than the methadone. So many things could go wrong so really its just not a good idea.
You have to be on 30 mgs or less of methadone to switch to suboxone. You will be guaranteed to go into precipitated withdrawal if you jump from 90 mgs of methadone onto suboxone. There is a specific way to switch over as well. DO NOT take the suboxone, you will be sorry and possibly ill and need to go to the ER, if not worse.
