Having surgery and Im on suboxone

I am having my gallbladder out this thursday and I am currently taking suboxone. I have been for 2 years now. My doc said that If I switch to subutex, the pain meds prescribed such as lortab will work after surgery? Is that true?

Re: Having surgery and Im on suboxone

yes to a point,the pain meds will help to kill the pain but you will not get the buzz that you normally would by themselves.only the painkilling qualities of the meds will work which is what you want.good luck-spark
