I took 4mg of suboxone today @6am & 4mg @12pm. How long till I can take my usual 30mg roxis? I usually take 10-14 30mg roxi/day (2-3 at a time) for severe chronic migraines but ran out for 2 days, hence the subs on 2nd day. But I will get my roxis @4pm. When is it safe to take because I have a raging migraine.

I wondering the same as"need help". Last sub was 3pm yesterday but I need to take the 30OC ASAP. Sitting on them sucks! From all my research it seems like we can take them as soon as we want, but the effect will just be less which is my experience in the past. Took 4 Norco couple hrs after 8mg sub and didn't have any effect on me. In other words, I didn't feel the norc and the sub effect wasn't fazed or compromised. I'm at 19 hrs now and going to take a 30 oc. A rule of thumb for me is to wait till my pupils dilate....then I know I'm ready. I'll report back. Wish me luck !

Good luck LoProf!!! My heart goes out to you. Let me know how it goes. I couldn't take the pain so I took 3 30mg roxi (my usual dose as I said b4) just 20 min ago & I'm already starting to feel some relief. Not as much as usual but any relief will do. I was ready to tear my eyes out from the stabbing & nothing OTC or baths or cold/hot compresses were doing anything. I think it must depend on it tolerance. I've been on same dose of roxis for 4 years now so my tolerance is really high. I also have dilaudid for the really bad (like ER type) migraines. It only works some of the time so I prefer the roxis.

Yep! All good! Basically just trading one for the other except I'll admit it did take a couple extra the rest of today. Still NO sickness and things only got better as my receptors loosened the sub and accepted the opis. After 3 30s (blue roxi) I'm pain free finally and feeling awesome. Definitely NOT like going from op to subs where you HAVE to wait. There should be zero worry for anyone trying to switch this way. There's NO possibility of precip WD and nothing to worry about going from sub to your normal opi`s again. Good luck and I wish everyone a pain free world...especially if you legitimately need it.

I've been taking subs for over 3 years now and have had 2 surgeries during this time. I am about to have my 3rd procedure where I will be going back on oxy and this is how you do it. It's true that the half life is 72 hours but it's still possible to break through the sub barrier to reach the receptors. It all depends on how long you've been on subs. So this is the rundown... At 72 hrs it will take double the amount if opiates you would usually take, at 48hrs hours 3 times and at 24hrs 4 times. So I wouldn't even start trying to make the transition until at least 72 hours unless you don't mind wasting perfectly good opiates. Now remember you can still OD if you get too crazy with trying to break through the SUB barrier, so be very careful! But... But... if you have only taken subs (say one or two) to get through a short time of not having opiates then you're in better shape because your system is not saturated. You will be good to start taking opiates once you start to feel the withdrawals (true withdrawals, not a little ache) coming back.

People get confused about precipitated withdraws when it comes to taking subs. If you're stating subs after long term use of opiates you need to wait at least 24hrs or when the withdrawals peek if under 24 hrs. If you are not already in withdrawals then taking subs too early WILL throw you straight into withdrawal and I'm sure I don't have to tell you what that feels like. But if you are going back to opiates from long term use of subs you are not going to be thrown into withdrawals, it's just going to be a waste of opiates trying to get a ceiling effect. Fact is, there is no quick way back to opiates after sub use no matter how you go about it because of how powerful subs are. But if you have taken only one or two and your system isn't saturated then it's much easier. Hope this has helped if your looking for some advice on taking opiates after being on subs...

Hi everyone. Can someone help me out right away please with a question I have to ask please ?

I have taken 16mg of suboxone yesterday Saturday July 1st, 2017 at about 3:00pm. It is 11:00pm tonight Sunday July 2nd. So it's been exactly 32 hours since my last dose of the 16mg of suboxone. I have 2 APO 80mg OXYs and 4 20mg football OXYs. So 2mutiplied by 80mg of OXYs = 160mg of OXYs. Plus the 4 footballs multiplied by 20mg OXYs = 80mg of OXYs. So 160mg + 80mg = 240mg of OXYs that I all have on me right now. So my question is how much longer or how many more hours should I have to wait before I can take all the 240mg of OXYs, mind you I took 16mg of suboxone 32 hours ago.

Thank you for reading my post !
Please respond to me ASAP I am in a great amount of pain and want to take these 240mg of OXYs as soon as I can.

Will

When can i take buprenorphine after being on a daily dose of 6 percocet (10/325) for years! I need to take this med instead of going to out of state methadone clinics. Can anyone tell me when i can start this med without feeling withdrawals! Or should i just get ready for bad withdrawals, diarrhea, ect.?! Thanks.

I took 8 mg of suboxone at 3pm, but I slipped up and took opiates at 2 am the next morning. Is it safe to take my morning dose of suboxone like I was supposed to since I took the opiates earlier that morning? I didn't feel the opiates at all, so I know the suboxone was working.
