The proper Suboxone dosage really depends on the drug you were taking and how much of it you were taking, so it can vary from person to person.

Learn more Suboxone details here.

What dosage have you been told to take by your doctor?

You may have taken too low of a dose, but like I said, it depends on how much you were taking of the drug you were on.

Did you wait until you were in full withdrawal before taking it?

I just started sub's (1, 2mg) yesterday for oxy addiction. I slept well, woke up with no W/D symptoms. I feel very dizzy, normal ? Also, can I take a 5 mg valium as I have been using them for years for Panic Disorder.

You must wait 72 hours for the sub to get fully out of your system before taking any opiates. You will basically be wasting the pain killers. The suboxone is made to fake out the opioid receptor making your brain think it has opiates. You mmight as well throw them away. Subs have a half life of 24/36 hrs and take at least 72 hrs to get out of the blood stream. So I would wait. You may also could have taken too much if you aren't using that high of dose of opiate you may be feeling nnausea and dizzy from too much. Just like if you take too many Percocet so to say and you get that nasty opiates high from too much at once. I'd ask your doctor or if not ask a pharmacist you can call anonymous and just ask a general question worse they can do is hang up

I just started taking Suboxone for oxy addiction as well. I was taking about 2-6 30mg oxycodones on average a day, so anywhere from 60-180mg of oxy a day. I was dosed at 12mg of suboxone. I took it about 18 hours since my last dose of oxy. The longer into withdrawals you wait, the better the suboxone will be. I have the film suboxone so you have the dissolve it under the tongue. It worked in about 15 minutes and I felt soooo much better. I cannot stress how much better I felt. Maybe your dose is too low or you were not in full withdrawal yet. If you take it before withdrawals, you get what's called precipitated withdrawals which are similar to opiate withdrawals. Ask your doctor about the dose and if it was appropriate. Do not take anymore suboxone than prescribed, always ask before doing that, otherwise the doctor won't trust you. As for the valium, do not take that with the suboxone. Any benzos are fatal in combination with suboxone.
