I do not take either one daily. I have had back pain and I took three10mg methadone tablets. Well that didn't really last long so I took a 8mg Suboxone. So far I am fine other than feeling a little sick on my stomach but I also haven't really ate today. This won't really hurt me will it??

Yes it can KILL you!!! Especially since you are OPiate Naive or you would have went into PC withdrawals. I would get to er if your breathing slows have freind watch you close. play safe God Bless
Omg do I know about precipitated wds u are playing with fire mixing the done and subs I litterly was ready to commit suicide really!!! Be safe I wouldn't try this again u dont always get lucky!!
I am making the switch from methadone to subs. My last dose of methadone was 30mgs about 6 am monday. I read all of the horror stories about this switch and was a bit worried. I took my first subs, half of an 8mg strip, this morn (weds) around 9. Its been 3 and a half hours and Im feeling better. Doc also gave me gabapenton(sp?) and Valium 10 mgs twice a day so I know thats helping, but still I dont really even feel dope sick. Slight head ache but Im not heaving and sweating as expected. Wait at least 48 hours or more if your a regular methadone doser or the nalexone will send you into WDs. Golden rule, BE HONEST with your doc and do as he/she says. These drugs can easily kill you if not used as directed. WDs hurt but precipitated WDs will be worse. Hang in there it only gets better.
About PWs, I was wondering, If Im one a 20 mg dose of suboxone and havent had it in 2 days, Am I okay to take Suboxone. I want to wean myself down, with a single 8mg sub?
Omgosh... u cant take saboxone unless u r in wothdrawls.taking saboxone after methadone within a 12 hour period can make u very sick.thats why your stomach is hurting.(or was)saboxone is just used for opiate withdrawl & not pain.Make sure u dont do this cause it maay hurt u very bad.especially if u have a bad stomach.take from 1 that went throuhg it & ended up in the hospital.
jaypee, I had a friend who was on Methadone pills, but he was blasting them. He stole one of my subs and shot it in his truck. A minute later I was driving him to the hospital, as he was in tremendous pain. Yeah, blasting subs and Methadone is not a good idea, but if this person wasn't continually taking an opiate, I don't see much of a problem, except for the fact that these medications aren't to be played with so casually.
Nor are they good to play with in any route of administration. But the only people I have witnessed with that bad of a response is by mainlining. My old Methadone friends use to administer suboxone regularly with Methadone. Not once did I see an adverse reaction, except for the needle users.
yeah I have never shot up anything! I am extremely terrified of needles. I was fine yesterday though. Didnt get sick or anything. I just needed to eat something I guess. It helped the pain all day and I slept like a baby. I also feel great today. I think the long lasting effect of them is helping me through today too.
It is so dangers. I almost died mixing them. Be very careful. I was a bad pill head and could handle a lot. But almost died doing those 2 together
it is used for pain as well now maybe not 6 years ago
If you were taking the methadone regularly and then took the suboxone without waiting the appropriate amount of time from the last dose of methadone then it would cause withdrawals. If you have only taken methadone that one time and took some suboxone then it won't be much of a problem. IfyYou are not prescribed these meds, you are really playing with fire. Please be careful that you don't get burned. The methadone and suboxone can cause respiratory distress if taken in large enough quantity.
Ok thanks yeah I use to dose liquid Methadone about 4 years ago but I had just gotten some today for pain and then someone else gave me the suboxone. I feel fine I ate and my stomach stopped hurting. Everything I had read said not to mix them but that was if you were dosing regularly. So I just wanted to make sure! Again thanks
