- suboxone, opiate dependence
I don't know how, but I became addicted to oxys and hydros which has been going on for about 3 months. I was taking about 30mgs of oxy a day and maybe a vike on top of that then it escalated. I was then taking usually 90mgs a day of oxycodone a day (30 in the morning and 60 right before dinner time). I am on day 2 of subs (taking about 4mgs a day and everything is well)--
I want to know if I can use suboxone for only one week. Physical w/d for oxy and hydros last about 7 days. If I take about 4 mgs the first few days and start to tapper down, will I feel w/d of the suboxone. I work 5 days a week and simply just can't go through w/d. Please give me some insight, as I really don't want to go to a doctor. I have a problem that I think i can manage.
this is a tough one to call, but I will try, suboxone is not a magic pill that can be taken by most people who are seriously addicted to opiates and it would work as quickly as you are hoping. However, if the information you listed is accurate, you should not have developed much damage to the neurotransmitters in the brain and may be able to pull this off. If for some reason your plan does NOT work, and you feel withdrawal when you come off subs, it will be from the previous opiates and not the suboxone. No one can see the damage and how much was done to the neurotransmitters and receptors in your brain, but unless you were on a much higher dose of subs and for much longer, you will not be subs dependent, but you could still have withdrawal from your previous opiate dependency.
