I took half of a strip of Suboxone 8mg/2mg. This is the first and only time I have ever given it a try. I was told that it helps ppl get off of opiates, but works better than an opiate. So I figure that it would help with the pain I have. It was described to me as being a lil bit of a stronger dose of the hydrocodone 10mgs that I get prescribed to me. After about an hour of having taken it, I began to feel pain in my back that I haven't felt since I started pain management and was prescribed lortab 10's. So I looked up more info on Suboxone and found out that it is a pain blocker, which makes sense of why I began to feel pain after taking it. My question is...how long do I need to wait to take my lortab 10mg so I can lessen my back pain? Oh...and now that I know what Suboxone really is, I will never try it again. Thanks to all who answer!

Maybe you did not wait long enough after taking the opiate. Suboxone works most effectively after waiting 12-24 hours from the last dose of the opiate. Suboxone will keep any opiate from being effective for at least 36 hours. It has a long half-life.

You need to be in full withdrawal, before taking Suboxone, it is not a pain blocker, it contains an opiate and a blocker that helps prevent the abuse of other opiates, while someone is being treated with it, according to the FDA. Its active ingredients are Buprenorphone and Naloxone.

As reported by the NIH, it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth.

Are you on any other medications, or just the ones you mentioned?
