Only your doctor will really be able to answer this, because it can vary from person to person and, of course, will also depend on your Suboxone dosage as to how much of the Naloxone that you've been taking.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

You will need to wait awhile, but precisely how long can vary.

What dosage have you been taking and for how long?

Randy, do not understand why you want to go back on methadone. I was on it for 20 years and just this year was slid over to suboxone. I was a pain patient on a low dose but just could not get off those last 10 mgs. of methadone. Tried three separate times very slow detox (one was 3 years long dropping one milligram a month) but when I got to that last 10 mgs I was ready to be institutionalized. Just could not handle it. Irritable, putting that mildly, , high blood pressure though the roof. Cold sweats, hot sweats. NO SLEEP. Your lose your freedom and the stigma is huge. You can no longer control your fate. You are in the hands of the receiver. Money hungry liquid clinics and well meaning doctors that can drop you on a moments notice making up any sort of lie. God forbid you get arrested for mistaken identity and you are locked up. Do you think you will be able to get your required daily dose in order to feel normal? People have DIED detoxing in jail, not given their necessary methadone they need.
I am hoping I can detox off the 1 mg. sublingual Suboxone in near future. I have learned that a person on methadone for a long period of time, after detoxing from methadone, a portion of them ( a study was done) their endorphins will never kick back in again. They will never feel normally good as they once did in their years before starting opiates.
There is quality of life at stake. I strongly urge you to think hard about this.

Oh Hun, whatever you do, don't go back on the methadone if you are on suboxone...yes you are addicted still to a substance however you know you can lead a life on suboxone as opposed to being high as a kite one min and in a near withdrawal closer to dose time... ppl get bored on suboxone bc they don't get the high like they did but it's not worth it in the end. Good luck!

Nobody is answering the question!!!! I have seen a few questions. Let's try this again....if you are already taking subutex will taking for example 10mg of methadone after your normal sub dose throw you into withdrawal or cause you any problems. I KNOW after daily dosing of subutex you can take other opiates and either feel them some, a lot, or not at all. Then sub in the morning again and be fine. The question is does methadone have a different mode of action from morphine where it would strip off subutex and put you in wds.

Re: Mr fact checker (# 5)

No, you probably will feel little to no effects from taking the Methadone after using Subutex/Suboxone. But from personal experience, I can tell you that you should never take Suboxone or Subutex to soon after your last dose of opiates or methadone. You WILL regret it.
