Unfortunately, you do have to be in withdrawals before taking the Suboxone. It is recommended that it be at least 48 to 72 hours since your last dose of methadone before you take any suboxone. There is a test you can take to determine if you are in sufficient withdrawals. You must answer the questions honestly and score at least a 24 before taking any suboxone. The following is a link to the test:
Do not take the Suboxone too soon or it will cause preciptated withdrawals which are worse than the normal ones. I know you are anxious but be patient and you'll be back on the right path soon.
