hi bignorm,Sounds like your trying to do this on your own.it doesn't matter to me. only you matter to me because im on sub too,and it sounds like your ready to quit them opanas.you need to wait until your in withdrawl. i know it sounds crazy but 36hours cause the buprenorphine is gonna rip the oxymorphine out of your brain. if you take the sub too soon you will know it. if you go into withdraw wait 2 hours then take another half of sub.ill friend you if you do the same i can help
I don't think you need to wait quite 36 hours. That seems a bit long. I was on hydrocodone and waited 17 hours and I was fine. My doctor said I didn't even have to wait that long because the half life of hydro is only 4 - 6 hours. The doctor said 12 hours would've been fine.
The half life for Opana is 7-10 hours, which is a little longer, but not much. So you should be fine taking your last dose about 20 hours or so before you take Suboxone. But you should really rely on the COWS scale (which you can google). Because everyone metabolizes meds differently, it could take you a little longer or a little shorter amount of time to be ready to take Suboxone for the first time. It's hard to say exactly how many hours... it depends on your body. I was at about a 19 on the COWS scale. I wasn't in horrible withdrawal, but I was definitely uncomfortable with chills, diarrhea, lethargy, etc.
