Re: Starting Subutex
Did you say 30 mgs of lorcet? And they are putting you on Subutex? Why? How long are you going to take it? Are you an addict or are you just physically dependent on the lorcet? Surely you meant 30 tablets a day? Can you clarify? I would NOT take Subutex if you've only been taking 30 mgs of lorcet per day. You will be really, really messing w/a very strong opiate for a very small amount of medication that you are taking. Also, every other post I've seen says that you should be in early withdrawals when you start so it depends on what you are taking. If you were addicted to Oxycontin for example, that stays in your system longer so you would have to wait about 2 or 3 days before starting it... However, I was taking lortabs and I started Suboxone (which is different from Subutex just by a little) about 8 hours after my last dose and did fine. Can you clarify for me how much you were taking before I continue to write more about what you should expect? Thanks so much!
