I took 20mg methadone 36 hours ago and 10mg 28 hours ago. I dont feel really sick yet but a little anxious. Is it safe to administer 2mg of suboxone right now or do I need to wait longer? ## Hello, Zeke! How are you? You need to be in full withdrawal, before taking Suboxone. Otherwise, the Naloxone in it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Wait longer. Methadone is still in you. Methadone takes at minimum 70 hrs to get out of u for Subs to work. You should get Subutex it's Suboxane with ... ...

how long does it take to feel suboxone after taking methadone
3 Replies RSS
I got off my subs for a month and went back to full antagonists thinking I was gonna have gall bladder surgery. I can't take the opiates anymore so I went back to my subs two days ago after being on methadone for about two weeks. My question is why do I still feel so so weak and I'm not familiar with methadone, so thinking it's still in my system maybe and the two are fighting it out ??? ## Because methadone has such a long half life, I think your assumption is probably correct in that the two medications may be fighting it out on your receptors so to speak - potentially causing side effects such as weakness. MedsChat has a drug half life calculator on the home page here that estimates how long a specific drug/dosage remains in your body after certain time intervals; whereas... ...

My ? is it a must to wait 48 to 72 hours before Switching to Suboxone . This is what iv,e always been told . ## Yes, you must be in full withdrawal, before taking Suboxone, otherwise it could cause you to experience dangerous precipitated withdrawals, according to FDA warnings. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. The exact time frame can vary from person to person, but you must be in full withdrawal. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

methadone withdrawals Suboxone
1 Reply RSS
Hi there, this is for the people who are on methadone / or Suboxone. I've been on methadone for an opiate addiction, for a year now. My clean date is feb 2, 2015. At first, methadone was the best thing that had ever happened to me. I finally felt normal, and thought I was ready to get my life back on track. Well.. What a lie that was. I was at 75 mlgs of methadone from February 2015-August 2015, then started tapering off at 5 mlgs a week. I have a rapid metabolizer, so methadone never lasted longer than 10 hours in my system. Now I'm at 30 mlgs and I'm living in hell! I'm in constant withdrawal, body aches, sweating, hot /cold, emotional, aggressive... Etc. All I want is to feel normal again, but don't want to be tied on a leash to the methadone anymore! People say t... ...

I am having some serious withdrawals this early morning. I just took an 8 mg sub at 4 am and i wanna go to the methadone clinic at 5 am will I be able to take a dose of methadone at that time or will it not mix well with the suboxone strip? ## No, you'll need to be off the Suboxone for about 72 hours, before you can take Methadone, or it won't work. The Buprenorphine in it takes a stronger hold on the opiate receptors than the others do, plus the Naloxone neutralizes other opiates. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

The time period between taking only one Suboxone sub film and going back on my methadone 10mg. How long to wait? ## According to the fda..There is no set time between taking suboxone to methadone and vice versa. It solely depending on many factors that differ widely between patients. Most addiction specialists agree that a patient must be in mild to moderate withdrawal to switch between the two drugs. This may range between 8 hours to 5 days after the last dose. Many doctors specializing in addiction wait 3 days (72 hours) after there is no trace of said drug found in a drug panel.. This is becoming standard protocol in many states. My conclusion is this: only you know your own body and how long after suboxone that you feel chills, fatigue, sweats, and nausea. Once feeling these symptom... ...

Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ...

Switching From Suboxone To Methadone

I've been on the highest dose of suboxone for about a year now and i don't feel like it's helping at all anymore. I wake up miserable everyday with horrible cravings and i wish i hadn't woken up at all. I want to switch to methadone for pain which is what my family Dr. treats me for. I think my Dr will write for it for pain management. But since i just picked up my suboxone for the month would it be able to be filled and also would the methadone be covered by my welfare insurance? I know he can write for suboxone even though i never asked him to do it since i go somewhere else. I live in Philadelphia i don't know if that makes a difference. Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated. ## Methadone and suboxone can't be taken together.. it's deadly My older s... ...

I took 15 milgrams of methadone after not taking any in over 2 years am I ok to take a piece of a suboxson ## The answer to this may be different for each individual (as far as how long to wait), but if it were me I'd probably try to wait 3 days for methadone to be excreted, due to it's long half-life. Other patients on here may feel differently though. Based on your situation I have a feeling you'll be alright to take suboxone sooner than later, but if in doubt I would still encourage you to contact your prescribing doctor first, just to be on the safe side. Hope this helps! ...

Hi everyone! I was wondering if suboxone is as hard 2 get off as methadone? I was on 110 of methadone 4 almost 5 years, after many years of Oxy abuse. Got down 2 (24) and the withdrawals were so bad, and, the cravings came back. Dr put me on suboxone, which works great. I've been on 3 (8 mg) a day 4 almost 8 years now. I'm scared 2 death 2 get off. I suffer with a lot of pain, too. The suboxone helps some. What with it. I'm also afraid of the bad withdrawals, and returning back 2 pain pills. Any advise will b helpful. ## Hi Cats, You definately can get off subs it just takes time. Why not cut down just a couple of mgs and see how it goes. Instead of 8 three times a day you could try 8 than 6 than 8. If you feel allright after a week or so try dropping another 2. Theres no se... ...

what if your on methadone can you still take suboxon? ## NO! They are both very strong narcotics, it is not safe to take both. In addition, Suboxone also contains Naloxone, which neutralizes other opiates. This is done to prevent people from still trying to get high off of other narcotics while they are under Suboxone treatment. ## Also it will put you into IMMEDIATE withdrawals...so DO NOT DO IT!!!! ## So true I went into acute withdrawals. I did not feel human. I thought I could go get high and get rid of the feeling, so wrong. I t made it even worse. I am terrified of suboxen now. Don't take it too early! ## NO THAYS WHAT SOB.IS FOR GETTING OFF OG METHAFONE ## Yeah I think you'd be crazy to try. ## First hand info here, do NOT take Sub. with methadone in your system, you have... ...
