You have to be in full withdrawal from all other opiates, before you can safely take Suboxone.

Learn more Suboxone details here.

The precise time that happens can vary from person to person, depending on their own body, how much of the given drug(s) they were taking and other factors.

It's a very fine line, because taking it too soon can throw you into withdrawals, but you have to be full in them, before it's safe.

Are there any other questions or comments?

It has been 24 hrs since 30mg dose of methadone and H use even prior to that. I am not having excruciating wd but slight. I took 1/4 of my sub an hour ago and am not feeling any worse, precipitated wd. Does this mean its safe to take my other 1/4? Wouldn't I feel worse already if it was too soon to take?

24 hours at the very least! It does depend on how long you were on the oxycodone, but if you just took it for a few days or so for an injury etc, 24 hours should suffice. If you can wait longer, do so...but that's easier said than done! If you've been on oxycodone for a long time (& are taking suboxone to get off it), I would try to wait the recommended 3 days or else prepare for HELL!

Im sorry but thats BS. The oxycodone (roxy's) are out of your body in 6 hours give or take, after taking the oxycodone even for years you can take the subs in about 8 to 10 hours depending on your body's metab...! If you can do 12 then do 12 but 12 is just fine, believe me, i do it all the time. Its just within them first 6 to 8 hours is where the danger zone is, now for oxyCONTIN i would say no LESS then 12 hours, im about to see myself tomorrow. But, with percs, roxy's and vics/tabs 8 to 12 hours is fine, if can like i said wait 12 hours and you will be fine. Because basically they give you subs when your withdrawing and after 10 to 12 hours without roxy's or percs you are feeling pretty s***ty, if you've been on them long enough. I know this is way late and wrong but i HAD to state this fact.... Too many paranoid people out there! GL.

you seem to be the one to ask...just want to be clear..youre saying that after 8-10 hours after taking vics, its safe for the sub?

I wait about 4 hours after and I've never had a problem. I've been taking oxy for a few years and whenever I take a break and use subs I'm always perfectly fine. The best thing to do is take your last dose before you go to bed and when u wake up start the suboxone. That's what I normally do.

Iv been on suboxone for two years.started on 8 mg now down yo four.I had a kidney transplant Dec.2nd and was put on 10 mg percosets every 6 hours and 15 mg morphine every 12 hours.iv been taking them for 3 weeks. I wanted to start suboxone. Every time I woke up on the percs and morphine I felt terrible.already feeling withdrawl.suboxone doesnt do that, as long as you take the prescribed dose u never feel that icky feeling.I have been an opiate addict for over 10 years. Detoxed several times. Rehab for a year.detox program 3 times.certainly not proud of it! If I had one wish (that couldnt include bringing my little brother back to life (he overdosed on lorcet and xanax):(miss him.I would wish to not be an opiate addict even over million dollars! Anyway I was so scared to take the suboxone too soon.i took my last dose of morp day before yesterday and last perc @ 6pm last night.I was trying to wait till 12 noon today but I gave in at 10:30.I took 4 mg suboxone.its been 2 hours and I feel much better. You have to wait till you feel some withdrawl but not full terrible withdrawl!I waited about 17 hours after I took my last dose of perc (10mg) people say wait 24hrs to 3 days (not true for me)God bless anyone with this devil in your life! You are not alone!

Everyone is different but yesterday, Monday, I took 2-8mg Suboxone at 7pm and I took 1 100 MG MS Contin, Morphine, at 9am, at 6 pm I already felt withdrawal starting
I was hesitant , but took Sub anyway, I felt better within an hour
Normally I take 600mgs of MS Contin & 12 -30mg Roxicodone a day. Which I last took on sunday.
So important,
