I took about 1/3 of a 8mg suboxone at around 9 this morning and it is around 4pm now and i am still feeling dizzy and naucious. Is this normal or did i take too little of a dose. ## The proper Suboxone dosage really depends on the drug you were taking and how much of it you were taking, so it can vary from person to person. Learn more Suboxone details here. What dosage have you been told to take by your doctor? You may have taken too low of a dose, but like I said, it depends on how much you were taking of the drug you were on.

So I've been on Norco for back surgeries for about 10 years. Taking 4 10 mg three times a day. I decided I was done being a slave to this drug! Anyways, I have done the sub treatment before and was on it for two years and weaned off, went thru pure hell for weeks only to start taking Norco again. I took one of my 8 mg sub and cut them into 1 mg pieces. Took 2 mgs for two days then 1 mg next two. Felt pretty awesome no WD or cravings! I decided since I had gone 4 days and being so afraid of the sub building up in my system I would jump on day 5 altogether. Tomorrow morning at 8am will be 3 days clean. I feel a little sick but worked all day which surprised me but diahrea is horrid! Imodium isn't even helping that. How long should I be feeling these symptoms? My craving for norco ... ...

Hello I have been on opiates for about 2 years now and I was given a half of a quarter of a subutex and this is my first time taking it. I was wanting to know when it wears off? I think it threw me into full detox because I took 20 mg of hydrocodone 7 hours before I took the sub. I am aware I have a problem I just want to know when the sub will wear off. Took it at 1:30 pm, it's now 9:30pm. ## It usually takes about 72 hours, before other opiates will be effective for you, again. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## That is not necessarily true. If it's the only one he has ever taken and in such a small do... ...

I have a high tolerance i took a 15mg white morphine how long should i wait to take suboxone?? ## To properly use Suboxone for addiction issues, it shouldn't be taken until you are in full withdrawal from the other substances you were taking. Suboxone contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine and Naloxone, the Naloxone is used to prevent the abuse of other opiates, while someone is under treatment, however, it can throw you into withdrawals if taken too soon.

I took about 1/4 of a suboxone 8mg film at about 8:30 this morning. Of I take a 30mg roxy at 10:30 tonight, will I feel it or will it be a waisted. ## Yes, it will. You should give it at least 48 hrs after your last Sub. I know..I tried. I wasted 8 15 mg. oxys because I couldn't wait! Hope this helps! ## Other reports here on the account of personal experience suggest that one only needs to wait a minimum of 12-24 hours in order to feel effects from opiates after suboxone. My assumption is that these figures are probably based on how often you take suboxone and how much you typically take when you do take it. So all I'm reiterating here is that there's no specific waiting period that'll work for each and every individual. One should probably use their own best judgement ... ...

How Long Till Suboxone Is Out Of My System

I was put on suboxone after two years of narcotics from three bad and failed shoulder surgeries. I started in March, April was on 1 pill a day and May 2 weeks 1/2 pill 2 weeks 1/4 my last dose was thursday. my shoulder dislocated again and need something but I don't want to be ill. any suggestions? the pharmacist says its out in 24-36 hrs but now I don't know. any suggestions? ## The main concern is actually the Naloxone, since that is what neutralizes opiates to prevent anyone abusing them, while they are under treatment with the Suboxone. Naloxone actually has a fairly short half-life of only a little over an hour and it takes approximately 5 to 6 half-lives for something to be eliminated from the body, so it would be gone in about 6 to 7 hours. The Buprenorphine, which is the... ...

Suboxone doesn't last long with huge tolerance
4 Replies RSS
So I'm 30 years old. I have been taking various pain medications in very large doses for 15 years. I once ate 42 10/set hydro in one day. I was not worried about overdose on hydro, just acetaminophen. So I have a brain full of opiate receptors. From what I have read the longer and larger your tolerance well what happens is your brain builds more opiate receptors. So this is how high my tolerance is. I can take 36mg of Suboxone and the next morning at about noon take a couple hundred mg of morphine and feel full effects. So even though buprenorphine is so many times different in potency to morphine, the fact that it does not activate receptors but partially must play a major role in how Suboxone works with super highly tolerant patients. I believe my receptors saturation level may be... ...
