Help! I've been on suboxone for 3 years and havent really had any relapses, especially in the last year. I have the flu of death currently and couldn't resist my mom offering me two of her lortab 10 mgs. That was about 12 hours ago. I can't tell if I'm having wds or not, honestly the pills didn't even help that much, and I'd like to take my sub asap. BUT since its my last one until the insurance prior authorization goes through, tomorrow or the next day, I'm only going to be able to take half my dose of suboxone. How long do I have to wait for wds to usually start? Like I said it didn't even feel like the lortab did anything

Thought this made more sense :( it meant to say that I can't tell if what I'm having Is wds because I have had the worst stomach flu of my life for the past 48 hours. Id really just like to know how long I MUST wait to ensure I don't make myself sicker?

Hi i have been taking 8 mg subs for 8 months. i just had surgery and had to take percocet 7.5 miligrams for 4 days. im ready to get back on the suboxone as that has been a life saver for me. i've waited 10 hours since my last percocet .. can i safely take a sub?

@sickandtired (thread starter),

From what I understand, it would probably be a waste of time to try and take something like Lortab after Suboxone, because Suboxone will inevitably block Lortab from reaching your receptors; hence the reason why you may not have received much benefit after using them.

However, looking at some related threads here on "When you might be able to start taking Suboxone after Lortab?", I'm seeing many patients mention that you should be in a state of withdrawals before you begin using Suboxone (which it sounds like you are from your description).

Although I'd invite anyone else with personal experience in the matter to please correct me if I'm wrong, since I haven't actually used these meds myself and am merely sharing the feedback of others.

I hope this helps!

You shouldn't get sick. I only did that once since I started subs a year ago. The only thing was I didn't really feel the Vicodin working bc of the subs. Never got sick like I've heard happens. Sometimes I wonder about that. If people do get double w/D symptoms or whatever they call it.

Just because a doctor feeds YOUR METHADONE ADDICTION doesn't make you a superior human being. People like yourself are why folks on methadone for addictive features are maligned and discriminated against. Next time you s*** yourself from withdrawal syndrome think about how superior you are!!!! Just stating the medical fact!!!!

Yeah I've seen alot of people say wait 24 hrs after short acting opiates (H, roxy,vics, percs, dilaudid, opana). This is complete b.s... 12 hrs is all u have to wait. Sometimes only 6 if youve only used 1 time.Unless your H was cut with fent. However, methadone is a completely different beast. I had precipitated withdrawal 3 days after last methadone dose. Methadone sticks around forever. You'd be best going from methadone to a short acting opioid , then to subs IMHO. AVOID PRECIPS AT ALL COSTS!!!

The suboxone has been built up in the OPs system for so long that they should not have to wait any time at all to dose. The waiting til you are in withdrawal rule is for habitual opiate users switching from DOC to suboxone after an extended period of time on their DOC. It does not apply to a one time use while on a sub main. Program. The sub did not leave the receptor during that use so dosing again will NOT precipitate withdrawal.

Suboxone is an antagonist-protagonist. Meaning that it blocks the effects of all other opioids in your system. since Suboxone is only taken 2 times daily and used for detox in some cases, it takes care of pain while also preventing a euphoric feeling that could become mentally addictive. These properties make it great for detox and easy to taper off of the drug. The lortab will not have an effect with suboxone in your system.
