If I stopped taking norco/vicodin tonight, and started my first dose of suboxone in the morning, would it work on my withdraws that fast??? I get sick within hour's. start's off with the irritability, headache day 2 SX become more progressive, by day 3 I m in bed and SX just get worst, lasting week's.
Hi, it does work (at least for me) within 30 minutes, but you do HAVE to be in withdrawls before you take it or else it will send you into horrible withdrawls and there will nothing you can do but wait it out. Good Luck KCG
I agree, it works very fast and for a norco/Vics you wouldn't have to wait long before starting Suboxone. BUT (and I know this isn't part of your question) a word of warning: Suboxone is MUCH stronger then the meds your taking and there are no quick fixes to addiction/dependency (as docs call it when they give the meds out rather then buying them off the street). I took it for 10 months at a very low dose. After stopping it took a MONTH to feel alright. Just like the Methdaone withdrawal I had before this. Sucoxone is classy methdaone with out being able to get high on larger amounts of Methdaone. Although Subs do give you a buzz and energy... no high no matter how much you take. As a matter of fact less is more. If I were you start small, stay small and stop as soon as you can... with in weeks... not months... and def not YEARS! It will help you get your life in order and remember what if felt like to feel, "Normal" although you may lose interest in things you did before and be fine on a sofa all day lol Since I've stopped I can feel music again for example. In any case when it comes time to stop go super slow and get down to as small a piece as possible for a while. While your on it at the right dose you'll have no cravings for your drug of choice, and even if you wanted to you would prob over dose before you got high while on Suboxone. Blocks out everything and for a while even after stopping (I had a lack in judgment few months back). So while the withdrawals are not fun at all if you need to get your head on straight Subs are the right med for you. But for a Norco/Vic addiction/dependency if I were you (and I'm not) I would stick it out. The Sub withdrawal are worse and last longer. They in my opinion should only be used to get off Methadone! Good luck to you!
