taking oxycodone after suboxone

Q:? taking hydrocodone or oxycodone after suboxone? I thought I was ready to to quit Oxys and got on suboxone. I made the mistake of doing it for someone else and not me! I've took 6 -8mg in 5 days and my last dose of Subs was over 24 hours ago.

Does anyone know how long I would have to wait b4 my Oxys will work again - the pain is crazy!

Help!!!

Re: taking oxycodone after suboxone

I have no idea.... I am sorry to hear about your situation.... Is the pain just from w/d? Are you sure you want to go back down the road of pills? It's a long road that usually leads to a lot of heart ache. Really think about this.. I say this with respect. Your pain will come to an end if it's w/d... I remember being a slave to my pills and I would hate to see anyone else go thru what I did.

Keep us updated!
Take care of yourself. You will be in my prayers!

Re: taking oxycodone after suboxone

Thanks for your reply and caring! I would say, (from experience) the W/D is the main cause of the pain in my joints and all the body aches. I just think I jumped the gun on wanting to get off the pill wagon. I know what ya mean, when ya talk about all the loss and heart ache. Xanax addiction took allot away from me and cause allot of heart ache. I was on Xanax for 22 years and when "I" was ready, I checked myself in Detox and 3 months later I beat them and haven't looked back for nearly 5 years now - that Detox takes the Cake!

I have also used subs to beat oxys before and had a couple of years of no pain meds. Then I was working this summer and tore my rotor-cuff badly. They put me on perks and ya know the rest - it woke up that addict in me and here I am again..? My shoulder isn't all the way healed as I though? Now I have double hernia's to deal with. The over the counter meds just don't help and suboxone does not do anything for pain!

After laying here sick and missing work for a week taking 16mg of subs a day - I just have realized that I'm putting myself thru hell, knowing I have to get a hernia operation soon. Well, I just think it's a waste of time to detox at this time?

So I guess I'm in a catch-22? If I take the Subs it's blocks my pain meds and I hurt and Your so right about being a "slave" to my pain meds! I've been there and know the losses it has caused me! But I'm 45 this year and I can't work in w/d and I'm just not ready to quit?

Truly Lost,
trikbag

My heart goes out to you, man I really understand. I am addicted to OXY (chronic pain in lumbar). I just had surgery 2 weeks ago and the entire nation is asking me when I am going to stop the meds. First, I don't know if the surgery even worked yet and 2nd I'm not ready to go thru withdrawl etc... I have been thru that before.
Honestly, I would find out when it is safe to take the meds and start again. Get the surgery over with, take good care of yourself, and then consider stopping.
Best of luck
