I am having some serious withdrawals this early morning. I just took an 8 mg sub at 4 am and i wanna go to the methadone clinic at 5 am will I be able to take a dose of methadone at that time or will it not mix well with the suboxone strip?

No, you'll need to be off the Suboxone for about 72 hours, before you can take Methadone, or it won't work.

The Buprenorphine in it takes a stronger hold on the opiate receptors than the others do, plus the Naloxone neutralizes other opiates.

The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, 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?

No, you will go through precipitated withdrawals and feel like you are going to dye. Look it up on Google, it's the complete truth. Ween off of methadone and be off for two days with no opioids then you can take Subutex or Suboxone. I am in the same dilemma. 20 years almost now on methadone. I am too in a methadone induced nightmare. Good luck my friend. LMK how you get off.

You cant go from methadone to sub because it will cause horrible Withdraws you need to wait at least 3 -5 days. This is if you are dependant on methadone. But you can go from sub to methadone. Be careful

They're right don't mix it the methadone and Suboxone. Suboxone is so much better if you're truly trying to get clean that is in my opinion.

Re: Teddyt (# 2)

You will be sent straight into withdrawl bc the suboxone cancels out the methadone and itll make you REALLY sick if u take the two together in the same time period. Which is what your talking about doing. If I were you, Id choose to just be on one or the other. Only way itll work. Ive been on both. Was on subs now on methadone. I like dones way better. But thats just me.
