Hi, I have been on suboxone for almost a year now the past month and a half I have taper down to 1mg I took yesterday and today I ony took .50mg, tomorrow and Sunday I was just gonna go ahead and withdrawal, which will put me at 48hrs with no Suboxone in my system.
I am have very bad pain issues going on in my back, and was hoping I could take my medicine to aleivate the pain on Monday. But am worried I will go into withdrawals, do y'all think 48hrs is long enough before I take my oxys I am prescribed?

Everyone's body is different. Me personally I would wait the 72 hours. Because the naloxone in the sub will interact with the oxy and you LL be very sick. So hang in there a few more hours!!

Post #1 is right about each individual being different when it comes to determining how long one should really wait in between suboxone and opiates. In my observations 72 hours seems to be a common time frame that frequently gets mentioned throughout many related threads here. So that may be a good estimate to use as a general guideline.

The number 72 also correlates with suboxone's mean half life of 36 hours (36 x 2 =72); so waiting it out that long allows suboxone to go through two cycles of it's half life; whereas only half of a half of whatever dose you took would theoretically still be in your body.

Other factors might also come into play (like, weight, metabolism, age, diet, etc) that impact how quickly substances are excreted.

Just a few things to keep in mind I suppose. Hope this helps!
