My doctor just put me on subutex along with percocet. I've been on percocet for yrs for severe and chronic migraines. He told me to take the subutex and if it doesn't work to take a perc. I take 15mg percs at a time. I've read some stuff online that worries me. Some people say if you take percs with subutex you'll go into withdrawals. I went through severe withdrawals with fioricet months ago and I don't want to go through that hell again. I took my first subutex about an hour ago and I still have a migraine so I want to take a perc now. Can I do that or will I get sick?

I have taken suboxone and subutex. While taking suboxone you shouldnt take other opiods while on suboxone cause it will put you in full withdrawal. But if its subutex your takeing also taking percocet is fine. It might take a little more percocet to have an effect but it would still work. I hope this helps.

This is a pretty active site, always ignore the haters always. I have been taking Subutex and use 5mg Percs for pain spikes I get from serious activity, then I cut the Percs out as the pain settles down. I have informed my VA doc and my primary doc and the guy who prescribes my Subutex. He is the only one that goes nuts over my use of Percs for really heavy duty pain, or migraines. The Subutex, 24mgs a day only gives me about 25% pain relief, its just not enough for me to do all the things he wants me to do to improve my fitness level. If I am that active I need more pain support. If I do nothing I gain weight lose muscle and hate life. I am living every mnute of everyday because I have CVID also, I have had near death expierence twice at least. I am "DEADMANWALKING." I have had more lives than a cat. My more specific question is: What is the issue with the receptors using Subutex and Percocet irregularly. The guy who prescribes the Subutex says Im defeating the purpose of the Subutex, he is of the "either or camp." The Subutex just doesnt control the pain enough. My pain on Subutex alone is 4 out of 10 versus 6 out of 10 withot Subutex. Before Subytex every morning was 8 out of 10 when I tried to get up. Now its 5 out of 10 geting up in the morning. When I am really active it reaches 7 out of 10 for a short time until I take 10mg of Percocet which reduces the pain and I slow down and rest bringing pain back down.

Hi there, you should not get sick at all. Subutex does not have naloxone in it. You will be fine. And it's actually the opposite you would have to take the percocet 1st then the Suboxone to possibly go through withdrawal. And it would have to be Suboxone not Subutex. It's Suboxone that has naloxone which is what will cause the withdrawal and to prevent that..,you should never take sooner than 18 to 24 hours after taking any kind of full opiate. Hydrocodone, codeine, H, etc... Good Luck!!!

I have taken a percocet right after doing a subutex and I have never had a problem so I don't understand these people that are saying they are getting sick on subutex after they take a percocetall I know is I've never had a problem when taking both

I've been on subutex last 2 days to come off oxy. I took 16 mg total yesterday and my last dose was 4 mg at about 8 am this morning. It is now almost 2 pm and I want to take a per comet for pain. Will the per comet work since it's been 6 hours since I took the subutex? Or do you think it's still bound to the receptors? If I take more percs do you think the sheer amount will allow me to feel the effects of the percs?

I have used Percocet and Subutex for 2 years. I have never had ANY withdrawls. I quit taking the Percs a week ago, Im trying to figure put how things go without the Percocet. No withdrawls to report. I have to say unequivically with no qualifications or caveates the Percocet has helped with the pain. I have an undiagnosed autoimmune disease, Im just another Vet that is dying from something yet they can't figure ot what it is or how I got it. By the way, the VA does nothing for me. I have severe chronic pain that spikes right after Ive been active. I have bad headaches too. The Percocet doesnt touch the headaches, I don't know why. I do get relief from the wicked pain in my back, hips and legs. My immune system is now compromised and I get monthly IGG infusions. I'm screwed, yet everybody blows a gasket when I take the cocktail that gives me relief. Anyway TMI, I am sharing my experience with Percocet and Subutex.

That wasn't withdrawal, you just got to high. There could have been some withdrawal if you were eating the percs and then the sub, but IM pretty sure that in doesn't work the other way round.

Suboxone & Perc together sounds more like self medicating than it does an actual prescribed treatment. Unless you did not inform the doctor you were already using one. Suboxone is a pain killer alone & not quite effective only if the dosage is not high enough to help withdrawal. However, when taken w/ Percocet, not only are you defeating the purpose you are adding to the problem.

I have been on suboxine for four years I just had an MRI and found out I fractured my back I've been in a tremendous amount of pain , my doctor gave me vicoden for pain I said I didn't want to take them because of withdrawells , she told me to take half my dose of subs for two days then stop subs I'm in serious withdrawals now course vicoden ain't touching withdrawels or back pain so I bought a subutex knowing there is no narcain so therefore I won't withdraw ..

Jane from message 133...What is your problem! I can not believe that you would risk the baby's health just because you "kept your faith in god". I, myself am an addict and i could never live with myself if i did something like that! The fact that nothing too major happened to your child does NOT make this OK. I would maybe try to rethink having anymore children until you figure out how to be a decent parent/human being! You should really be ashamed of yourself! You make me sick and you need some serious help!

I have been taking hydros and oxys for about 4 years or so now -the last year I take on average 50mg/day. I have not been able to be without them. The last 3 days I have tried subutex and taken about 4-6mg daily and been fine. I'm wanting to take a hydro, not sure if it is safe, if/when it will even do anything

Most likely u won't feel them or get euphoria from them. But They mite help your pain a little bit . But if u really want to feel the euphoria and get real pain releif u should wait at least 48 hours after sub. Sub binds so strongly to your receptors that it takes about 48 hours befor u can really " feel" any other opiates. From experience, I've taken at least 5 80's and a few roxi on top the next day after taking sub and basically felt nothing , and wasted the pills. And it doesn't matter if u insufflate them or swallow them, u most like are not gonna feel them, so hold off one more day so u can actually enjoy your pain pills. Either way, u won't get sick or anything like that, but u won't feel high or get serious pain releif.

Subutex is not a blocker naloxon is the blocker in suboxone subutex will intensify any other opiate pain killer.
