In order to transition from methadone to suboxone/subutex you need to taper down to 30mgs or less methadone a day and then wait at least 72 hours from the last dose of methadone before taking the suboxone or subutex. If you don't do it this way, you risk going into precipitated withdrawals which is extremely painful to say the least.
