I've been on suboxone program for a week, 16 mg per day, and today after seeing my doc, I took 40 mg of oxy (what I used to do) to try to get feeling good but I didn't (had read on the internet that its still possible to get high off oxy if its been awhile since your last sub dose, for me it was yesterday). I got my suboxone script refilled and was wondering if its safe to do so?
it happens that when your new to suboxone or just started it you try the oxys again. I did it and I was off my soxone for about 2 days and tried to get pain releief with oxycodone and I took an 80mg and nothing happened. I wanted to do more but I knew If I stayed on this roller coaster I would be off and flying agian. I immediately went back on my suboxone the next day. I would wait at least 12 hours before you start the suboxone, I really doubt you will get any withdrawals and the risk of overdose with the suboxone is low because its an antagonist also. Stay with the suboxone if you are getting cravings you may need a dose adjusement but most people do fine on 16mg a day and some even less. The problem is we want that same opiate or oxy feeling and this drug will not produce that no matter how you take, but it will prevent withdrawals and it should help suppress the cravings but you need to accept that it is a replacement for now. You see you tried to use and boom nothing happened. Thats a good thing, you have a buffer or a wall against the opiates now. Suboxone will save your life it you let it but you have to do the work. It is a great tool but only one tool. You need others. This is a good forum with alot of good people with experience on this stuff who want people to succeed. The people here are going to try n guide you for your own safety. The suboxone is a blessing, go back on it and live your life. Let me know how you are doing.
