Some people believe (including doctors) that you have to wait until you are in FULL withdrawal from Oxy's before you take Suboxone.
It is believed that if you take the Suboxone too soon, it will send you into horrendous withdrawals.
It's not true...
If you take Sub quickly after using Oxy's, AND you have withdrawal, then you aren't taking enough Suboxone. That's just the normal withdrawal you would have experienced from the Oxy's.
Confusing enough for you?
I took a few Oxy's the day I started Suboxone. I took them early in the morning, met with my Addictions Dr. for the first time around lunch time and had my first dose of Suboxone around 1pm. My doctor dosed me according to how much Oxy I was taking (which is HOW docs are supposed to do it, rather than start out at 2mg and "see how it goes"). She was spot on - cause I didn't experience and w/d at all.
