more info please!
1) what dose are you on, how long have you been taking suboxone?
2) How much codeine we talking about? Are you meaning a dose to make you feel high? Or do you have a headache?!
3) what is your usage history?
If you have been on Suboxone over a few days then dont take codeine as it will have no effect. It wont hurt you but wont do anything either as the suboxone will boot it out your receptors. You say 'would I feel it' which suggests to me you are looking to get high off the codeine. So the answer is 'No' unless you are on a very low dose and take a high codeine dose. I honestly wouldn't, why bother? if you are getting clean, you would be better sticking with it. If you are an ex-codeine addict and want to feel good, consider switching to methadone (No, Dr House, it isn't as dangerous as you make out - certainly not in the minute dose you appeared to be doing! ) or if you are really dumb join the rest of us junkies on the gear. Hope you are rich though!

Also, no ur not gonna feel the opiate no matter what strength. Suboxone blocks u frm getting an effect from any other opiates. If you are off the suboxone for 2-3 days, you will feel effects of the codeine again.

I am on a daily does of 16mg of subs a day and I ran out so I took some Morphine and some Codeine. The last time I took the Codeine was about six hours ago. How long until I should take my regular dose of suboxone so I don't get precipitated withdrawals?

Just to clarify for anyone else seeking similar information:

No, you cannot take other narcotics, while you are actively taking Suboxone, since one of its ingredients is Naloxone, which is intended to neutralize other narcotics to prevent their abuse, while someone is being treated for addiction with Suboxone.

You can learn more Suboxone details here.

When you want to start Suboxone, or start back on it, you have to be in full withdrawal from all other opiates, or it could put you into dangerous withdrawals.

Are there any other questions or comments?

It doesn't matter as soon as you take sub no codiene will effect you but you don't have to be in withdrawal for it to work. Good luck!

No. You have to wait until the subs are out of ur system completly b4 any opiatis will work. It takes about 3 days. And If you want to take some opiatis wait until its out of ur system b4 taking ur subs again. If been on subs for 7 mons at 24 mg daily.

generally the answer to your question is no... the codeine will not work as suboxone binds like glue to the same receptors that morphine or oxycodone does. Codeine transforms to morphine via your liver in smaller amounts and suboxone closes the door on other opiates getting through. However it is different strokes for different blokes. You can get some affect if you take enough of it, but I wouldn't try it as codeine is generally mixed with paracetamol and too much intake of that will destroy your liver.
When going on suboxone make sure you are in moderate withdrawal from your drug of choice before taking it or you could more than likely end up in precipitated withdrawal and that my friend you want to avoid at all costs as there is nothing you can do but ride it out.
If you have started on suboxone on a regular basis daily you can use other opiates and still take your dose of suboxone the next day because most of the opiate never got through in the first place. You have to be at least 2 days of suboxone to get a high. The best way to make sure its safe to take suboxone is waiting till your in moderate withdrawal and your pupils are dilated enough. Most of the time it's a pretty easy transisition. You do not have to wait until you are in full withdrawal!!.

Hi...I take percocet 10-325 and sometimes run out early due to taking a couple extra some days here and there due to extra pain. I've got 2mg sub strips to help if I run out before my monthly apt. I take alprazolam odt 1mg as needed for anxiety disorder and I now have doc gave me codeine cough syrup... Can I take the cough syrup (I'm not taking to feel high/I'm sick and will follow dosage of 1tsp/4hrs) will it work? And will my alprazolam (generic for xanax) work? Thank you!!

Codeine does work with Suboxone to stop pain. The Naloxone component only activates if you try and inject the Codeine. I'm on 8mg of Suboxone daily and took 2*30mg codeine phosphate/500mg Paracetomol pills with no ill effects.
