Now I need to take pain meds and need to know what to do.. I take generaly 3 8mg tabs a day and haven't taken any in 12 hrs ... what should I do?
You're going to need at least 5 days before you even have a chance at any opiate having effect. You can start the opiates when ever you want as they won't do anything until the buprenorphine is off the receptors. You won't put yourself into withdrawals by taking opiates while on suboxone, they just won't work... Good luck... Dave
hi C,is this pain too much for you to handle? what i would do if this happened me is i would take my subs the same way i have been. take motrin 800mg or advil until i can see a doctor.if it is that bad go to an emergency room. make sure u tell that ur taking suboxone. maybe you can be givin subutex.not sure im not a doctor. motrin is alot stronger then most people think. take up to 1600mg every 6 hrs. dont blow 6 months of being sober. again i dont know how much pain your in...
