Last week I took 3 doses of methadone, the last being monday morning. I have been on subs for 5 weeks. I know this was a huge mistake then I am starting to get the sweats, chills and I cant sit still. I have suboxone but I am afraid to take it. IDK what to do?

Hello, John! How are you?

You have to be in full withdrawal, before you can take Suboxone, again. Otherwise, it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals.

The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Is there anything else I can help with?
