I just got prescribed suboxone yesterday. I'm comming off of Methadone 20mg. The transition was fine. I did lay on the couch all day but at least I wasn't withdrawling just lazy. I waited 56 hours until I took the Suboxone. But I think I need more? I woke up this am with diarreah but all yesterday I was fine w/ the suboxone. She said if i needed anything to call her Tuesday. If I felt like I needed a little more today since methadone is also trying to get out of my system do you think that would be ok? I'm sure she'd give me more when needed. I heard you have to adjust to Suboxone and find the right dose as with any medication. I have a feeling 8mg total a day wouldn't be enough for getting off Methadone. Input?
yes if you are uncomfortable still then your dose might need to be adjusted.i cant believe that she started you on that low of a dose ..my doc started me out on 12mg and i was just coming off lorcets,and methadone is much tougher to deal with.if i was you i would give her a ring good luck
My gosh I just spent twenty minutes composing my question and describing my situation and I look over to the right and see you posted the damn mear exact same question about a month ago. Curios as to how its going with you. Especially whether or not you feel you waited long enough (56 hrs) before taking your first dose and how was it with your first few days of the transition. Did a reduction from 50 to 18mg at 1 mg per/wk. Would like to wait 72 hrs but will wait at least 48 before my first dose of Suboxone. Any advice would be welcome and appreciated...
