... 8mg.suboxone,cab I CUT IT IN 4S AND TAKE 2 MG.NOW?IT HAS BEEN 15 HOURS SINCE THE 40,I AM FEELING BAD
sorry your post came in while I slept. If you were talking about taking subs after 120 mgs of methadone, you are probably in a horrible form of withdrawal called Precipitated Withdrawal. I hope not, even if it is short acting opiate, you still did not wait long enough to take the subs without danger of precip kicking in. Suboxone is a complicated medication and precip occurs often, it is not a magic med that heals your brain from withdrawal, craving, or addiction in 1 pill. No judgment, there simply wasn't enough of the right type of info in your post that would have helped us advise you, to avoid the precip. If you are in worse wd now than you were before taking the subs, DO NOT TAKE ANYMORE, you will have to wait until both meds wear off before restarting, as neither will work. It also was not designed to switch to as a stop gap med until you can get more opiate. I am not judging you, I promise, I am trying to help you avoid precip. If you got your suboxone from an... ahem... Unlicensed freelance pharmaceutical supplyman or friend, they did Not tell you to wait long enough. 24 hours opiate free and in moderate withdrawal before induction to subs is advised to avoid precip while on short acting opiates. The switch from subs to methadone is even trickier and should NEVER NEVER be attempted at home or without a dr, trust me on this. We have a new member named amberrosey who was thrown into horrible precip at a detox clinic with supposed experts. Please update us to let us know how you are, sorry I was asleep when this came in. We do care here. Pattishan61
