I been on suboxone for 5 days . and today I used heroin the cravings got me .. so now im wondering when can I take my sub dose and because of the h will I have to repeat the precipitated withdrawal again. or because of the sub bein in my system fully I think can I avoid the problem and just redose tomorrow or tonight... any suggestions and experiences im thankful for...
Shouldn't have to go through precipitated withdrawals at all. As long as you wait 24 hours from your last dose of H you won't have precipitated withdrawals. Might experience a little normal withdrawals but not precipitated ones. You may need to increase your dosage of Suboxone so to combat the urge to use. Best to do this under the care of the doc.
Hey Caesar - I know you've been battling with this for over a week, and said you had "run out" of the H before, which was what "got" you last time you tried to induce with Subox. I'm not judging, cuz I've been there, really. But, it sounds to me like its important for you to get REALLY honest with yourself and the Dr. about how difficult this is for you. I know you said you really want to be clean... but, did you get yourself to some meetings? Did you call some people or post a cry for help before copping and using again? We can all give advice about the hows/wheres/whens of beginning the Subox again, avoiding precipitated withdrawal, etc. but this thing is tough, and its gonna take everything you've got to want to stop. And, each time you go out, it begins all over again... whether you've been on the Subox. or not.
When the cravings come, you've got to make sure you've gotten rid of all that reminds you or connects you to that past life, if you really want this. Its worth every second of the insanity that you must be goin' through, but I cannot impress upon you enough the importance of changing just ONE thing in your life in order to be sane again... and that one thing is EVERYTHING, in order to stop this cycle. Good luck, and I'm sayin' a prayer for you! We can all do with a few of those, I believe! I'm pullin' for you... again! J :)
I hope you stay with us and post next time you feel the urge. No one is perfect and we have all had feelings of wanting to go back to our DOC... some of us have given into it. I hope you can be honest with your sub Dr and please get rid off anything you have that would enable you to use again. Throw away your works and stay away from those who are using right now.
We are all pulling fr you.
I hope you took your sub and get back on track, If you need anything come to this group and talk.
You do have to wait 24 hrs after you dosed with the H to take your sub.
