I have been on methadone for 4 yrs, weeded down from 67 to 17 in past 2 weeks, I havent had anything in body other than lots and lots of vitamins,supplements for 32 hrs and Im in withdrawels and having a hard time. I would like to know (preferrably through experience) how soon I can take suboxon, can anyone help me Please?
This is from experience. Was on methadone ran out,knew I had to be sick before I took the suboxone didn't wait long enough & paid the price. I was only using the md to get by 3-4 days & waited probably less then 24hrs & took whole 8. I didn't get that sick & I've been doing this shit awhile but 4 years is along time but if it's leaving your system enough to get sick,you might want to try 2mg? The stuff is weird the first time you feel a little more sick but then its like s fever & breaks & you feel good. It works faster then md too,but then I didn't have a lot in my system so every morning on the md I'd wake up sick. I doubt 2mg will make you any sicker then you are now & the narcan is the first thing to get metabolized. Good luck.
The recommended time from the last dose of methadone is at least 48 hours and preferably 72. I would wait a while longer even though you are experiencing withdrawals. As you know, if you take the Suboxone too soon you will pay the price. You can google the COW scale for suboxone induction and take the test. You need to score at least a 24 before takng the Suboxone.
