... oxycodone but then heavily got back into it for the bulk of our relationship. He was doing 15-20 a day but toward the end he was getting really bad. He went to a 5 day detox and came out with seroquel but no other medications thinking he could manage by himself. that did not work so he got suboxine to help him not feel the pain from withdrawal. My girlfriend told me that her bf who had a similar experience was on suboxine and he was slowly getting off of them and his doctor said it could take a year. I have just recently noticed that i no longer see my boyfriend speaking about or taking his suboxine he claims that he only needs them every two days and he basically does not need them anymore. I was wondering what the facts are about this? My girlfriends bf said that it is possible to abuse suboxine use and you can take oxycodones on them if you wait a certain period of time. I do not know if i even understood the information correctly. Is there any insight to my problem?
You may not need an answer to this anymore but yes she is right, if you dont take Suboxone for a day or 2, you can take Oxy and it will work for you. If hes taking the Sub exactly as prescribed, then the Oxy shouldnt work at all for him. But its always prescribed to be taken every day. So if hes waiting a couple days, he could be using oxy again. Hopefully you get it all sorted out. Good luck
Your boyfriend is either abusing suboxone, not taking it regularly to taper off, or is taking it here and there and using oxy in the mean time - take it from someone who knows. Say you take suboxone on Monday - by Thursday (depending on wha dosage he is on - usually takes abou 36 hours for one dosage - just one dosage - to stop blocking the opiate receptors so that he can feel the high from the oxy. He may not be doing this at all, but I'd bet he probably is - or he's tapering down. So, he's either an angel, OR - a typical addict trying to get around the system to get high. I've known a few in my time and have done it myself. Good luck. God Bless.
