I had to got back to er for severve pain and more xrays showed broken ribs. very painful. they gave me percocet for pain i have been trying to see my regular doctor for days but unable to get appt. my pain and fustration did lead me to omit my suboxone use to hosp. so i just stopped the suboxone and now taking percocet. i do not want to go back to the habit which got me on suboxone. is it ok to use percocet and than go back on suboxone when the pain isnt so bad ? will the percocets work or does it take time for suboxone to get out of your system before the percs will work. ? its hard to tell if perc working at this point only taking one 5/325 four hours apart .and pain is still servere. thanksk
hi,need a little more info on how long you been on sub.lets not bs each other pain and frustration was not what made you omit the fact that your on sub.if you been on sub for any length of time percs probably won't help with your pain.call your doctor and see if you can get your sub adjusted till your pain subsides. i use motrin 800 for b/t pain because going back on a full aginist medication is not an option for me.call your sub doc take the motrin and leave the percs alone.if you were in a pain management contract you would know better then to use this excuse to try percs.cracked ribs hurt like heck and i know your in pain.but stop trying to come up with a good reason to take them.stick with your subs call your doctor... subzero58
I'll tell you my experience with suboxone & opiates on top of them & that is the Narcan in the suboxone goes fairly quick & has never noticeabley effected me when I took pain meds,dilaudid in my case,to the point where they didn't work,maybe not quite as well as they usually do but never completely stopped them. If you need to just take an extra one. The only problem with that is that if your going to run out of the Percocet early & if your still hurting your doctor might have a prob giving you an early refill,but as I said the Narcan should be gone in a day. The real problem is if you plan on going back on the suboxone is how long do you wait before taking it again because if you don't have all the opiates out of your system & you take it your gonna go into withdrawal & hate life bad! Hope this helps & good luck.
I just went through most painful infected bone, nerve & tissue in cheek, sinus cavities, tooth, from bad root canal years ago with high fever, etc. Argued with emergency endodontist, only Motrin 800, no opiates, due to my history. He insisted on giving 10 Percs 7.5 & wrote it on same Rx. as antibiotic. (He said I may have to go to ER for IV antibiotics & pain mgmnt.) Well, after 6+ yrs on Suboxone, I commited to never again use opiates under ANY condition. Saw both folks go through heart attacks & several other horrible medical conditions, but they hated pills, so neither ever took opiates!
Well, it got so bad, I did stop Subox. & began Percs. Over next 3 days, I took 10 pills. I never, ever, so much as felt one crumb of those Percs, even after waiting a day to start them! Forget Naloxone, receptor sites, whatever, I don't believe I'll ever go back to feeling an opiate, no matter how long I waited or was off Subox!! After 3rd day & waiting, I started back on Subox. Pain had subsided, but could NOT believe that I didn't once feel anything. I'm sure it took away more pain than Motrin would have, but I swear I don't know how it worked because I never felt a tinge of opiate. In a way, I'm glad it was as expected, but sure hope I don't have any bad pain again cause that caused nothing but frustration & felt all those old feelings about wanting 'more'. Not worth it. Back to my little 1 mg. Subox! FYI, one can rarely die from pneumothorax (collapsed lung), but I'm sure it felt like it. Good luck!
Hi Rbish sorry to hear about your pain situation. I also broke ribs in a motorcycle crash it is very painful. I was on suboxone when it happened and the dr.s knew my drug history they gave me percs also. I had to wait a couple of days to take the percs and i do not know if they even helped so i went back to suboxone. I tried heat wraps at nite so after all this i really feel for you just be careful what you take. i hope you start feeling better soon peace.
