Hold on-you are w/d from the hydro-like methadone-you still have w/d to a certain extent-you feel better than taking nothing...i remember..when i quit H-and started the sub-i was kinda ill-for a few days..i almost thought sub doesn't work.
But then-once i was stabilised-i could feel the differance.
It takes about a full week to really settle in..and have it work-as your body is w/d..
im not sure about the pain issues and how well suboxone works-on pain..
Give it a chance..and i do feel you'll be ok..remember your body has to adjust.
