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?

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.

He is just another pill head that has no idea what he is talking about you got sick because your body could't handle the dose very small amounts of subutex can make you feel like your in withdraw your body will adjust and you will do fine. Avoid any advice from people using words like pain killas.

Ive been on subutex for 2yrs and have taken percocet and zero withdraw. You won't feel high but it helps with the pain. As for suboxone if u do opiates before u take it you will go in withdraw but a friend of mine was on suboxone and did H the same day and was fine she just had to take a lot more H to feel "high" because the naloxone as subutex is just bupernorphine. That being said from experience you can take subutex with percocet.

Yes. As long as its subutex and not suboxone. Subutex doesn't have naloxone in it, which is what makes suboxone unsafe to take shortly after an opiate.

Yes it is safe to take opiate pain medication on top of suboxone as far as it putting you into withdrawals is concerned. I know doctors usually recommend that you don't just because they both have a depressant effect on your system, and if you take too much it can cause your respiratory system to shut down. I've never seen someone that has a high enough tolerance built up to opiates that they are taking 8 mgs of suboxone a day have any problem with that though if they are taking the prescribed amount of a painkiller. As far as causing withdrawals, you can take opiate pain killers after taking suboxone just not the other way around, so if you do take something else don't take suboxone the next day like you usually do, you'll need to wait at LEAST 24 hours before starting up the suboxone again. The bigger issue is that suboxone (buprenorphine) blocks the effects of opiates, and so taking them shortly after taking suboxone is worthless. You would have to take so much to overpower the suboxone and actually feel the effects of the painkillers that you would be in danger of overdosing... You really would need to wait at least 24 hours after taking suboxone for it to even be worth trying to take a different painkiller, and even then suboxone has a long half life too, and when you've been taking it for awhile it will still have some counteracting effect on the opiates for at least 3 days. You should be able to get some relief from the painkillers after waiting 24 - 36 hours though. I hope this helps, please be careful. The best thing to do is always talk to your doctor. There are other options for painkillers that are not opiate based like tramadol that they could prescribe you as well. Best of luck, I hope you get feeling better soon.

The reason why tramadol works on Subutex is cause tramadol has a higher Binding effect.

subutex plus opiates are OK and opiates will function exactly how there supposed to.. most addicts try to get subutexd in stead of suboxen because the opiate blocker is not in subutex, meaning u can get feelings from pain pills while on subutex.. (my source i am and ER doctor.. people who say they went into withdraws are prob jus tellin u that to scare u.. but with suboxone and opiates some people say it makes them feel like s***. but subutex is a drug used for people allergic to naloxone (the opiate blocker) so thre for the opiate blocker is not in it.. everyone figure out your facts first.. u may not feel high because if u been taking bupe for a while it is going to up your tolerence to opiates.. just want to give people the correct information

u r correct!i was prescribed 60mg of Roxicodone for years then stopped and went to subutex,12mg a day..the subutex has no opiate blocker!!it occupies the opiate receptors,suboxone does the same but blocks any opiate after taking it!!u can take a subutex and 5 hours later take a roxi and feel the pain meds working,most of these post are from weekend warriors who don't have to take meds for years.but if your on subutex or suboxone the point is to get off the pain meds..if your in terrible pain u can take a pain med after subutex but not after suboxone!
