how long after you take suboxone can a pain pill work

I took a suboxone 8mg and I have some serious pain. Will vicodin work on the pain or not? I am not looking to feel high, this pain is horrible. ## Hi Cheryl, Sorry to hear about your challenges with pain. From what I'm reading in other related discussion threads here, the general consensus I've gathered is that most patients recommend waiting an estimated 48 to 72 hours to reap the full effectiveness of their pain meds after Suboxone. This is in part due to Buprenorphine's long half life of 24-60 hours (est.), which has a higher affinity than other opioids on your receptors. I hope this helps! ## i have been taking 80 mg of oxycontin and 60 mg of oxycodone day for 7 years due to back pain.i stopped last week and started suboxene. I've been quite ill for a few days but fe... ...

However, you should follow the instructions provided by your doctor.

Ok I have been given a prescription of norco 7.5. I have been on subs since Dec 2013, 8mg a day. Is it safe to take them when they pull my tooth? ## It will not help with your pain until you stop Suboxone for at least 48 hours, and even with that you might get limited relief. ## Steph77 is right it's a complete waste, you should probably just take an extra 4mg of sub that's what my doc told me to do and it worked call your doc and see what he says. ## Ok so it did work with the extra 4mg.

Suboxone after just one pain pill

I have been off of roxys for about 3 weeks now. I have been taking suboxone daily. I started passing kidney stones. So I took only one Roxy to help with the pain. Thankfully I passed my stone. I don't know how to go about starting back on the suboxone. I do not have a craving for the pain pills at all anymore, and I really didn't want to take one but I was in agony. Any info is appreciated. Will I have the precipitated withdraws that I have heard about? I don't think that taking just one would make me get back addicted, right? Please help. ## Oh my! From experience I know that kidney stones are horrible, I've had a couple of them over the past few years, seems I am becoming prone to them, as I am aging. As to the medication, if you were taking Suboxone for several weeks,... ...

how long after you take first suboxone dose

I took my last pain meds @ 5 am today and I plan on taking suboxone until I'm able to make it to my appointment. It's 8mg and I know I shouldn't take the whole thing. My question is if I only take it for 3 days will it bother me when I get my pain medication? ## Please wait 72 hours at least. Or the the naloxone in that suboxone is designed to make you sick such as vomiting etc. ## I was on methadone for around 8 years and if I couldn't find that any opiods would work. I recently choose to begin Suboxone and I am on day 8. The first few days were rough but day 3 felt like a new person. Felt better then I had in years, my sense of taste and smell have came back, I felt great even though I'm only sleeping average of 4 or 5 hours a night. Today is day 8 and I actually s... ...

How long after taking a Suboxone can you take an opiate?

I have been on 8 mg/2mg Suboxone strips for 1 year. I am having a tooth (back molar) extraction in the morning. I used my Suboxone strip this morning & the tooth extraction is at 9:30 am tomorrow.

how long after taking a 1/4 suboxone can you take a Percocet?

I took a 1/4 of a suboxone a friend had given me around 6:00 pm today. How long do I have to wait until I can take a Percocet for pain and not get it and have it work? ## 1/4 of a suboxone isn't a very detailed description how many MG's was the strip?(i know this is an old comment but whatever) ## I know this topic is a few weeks old, but I do agree with josh (post #1) in that the answer to the original thread question would largely depend on how many milligrams of Suboxone you're taking. Based on some other cases I've seen, I'd take a shot in the dark and say it may be up to a week before it's out of your body. Although several personal factors such as age, weight, diet, etc, could also influence the excretion rate. I hope this info helps! Please post back if yo... ...

when can i take pain meds after taking a suboxone

When can I start taking a bunavail after taking 2 roxycodone ## You must be in full withdrawal from all other opiates, before taking Suboxone, or it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Verwon is correct. Not necessarily full-blown withdrawals, but you need to have at least a few of the first symptoms of withdrawals, which varies from person to person. Safe rule is usually at least 24 hours from last dose. ## The FDA may have a warning but I think the doctor prescribing needs to have a heavier burden of letting the patient know just had hard or impossible to get... ...

How long can I stay on suboxone?

Dr. Verwon, how are you? I have been on suboxone for almost 8 years now. I was addicted to Oxy for almost 10 years. I went on pain management because I have a lot of medical problems that caused me severe pain. I still suffer from pain. The suboxone helps take the edge off the pain, sometimes. But, I'm also afraid if I get off the suboxone I'll be back to using pain pills. Can I stay on continue to stay on suboxone as people do with methadone maintenance? My Dr. has not said anything about tapering or taking me off. He knows my situation. What do you think? Thank You! ## Hello Cats! How are you doing? I am fabulous, just keeping busy, thanks for asking. Yes, it can actually be used for pain, too. There are many people that take it for pain, rather than addiction treatment, or fo... ...

how long after taking suboxone can I take Hydrocodone for surgery?

I've been taking 8 mg/2mg Suboxone strips for 1 year. I am having a molar extraction in the morning. I took my Suboxone strip this morning & the tooth extraction is tomorrow at 9:30 am. If I don't take Suboxone again before the procedure, would I be able to take Hydrocodone after the surgery? I don't want to get sick, and I am concerned of going through it with no pain medications. Any advice appreciated! ## Hi, you can use hydros after you have your tooth pulled but it,s not gonna do much. You would be better off taking extra suboxone after you had extraction. Suboxone only works for about 4-5hrs for pain relief. Of course it works much longer keeping wds away and stuff like that. I was speaking to my sub dr just the other day about this. I have addiction issues and pai... ...
