is it just me or are these not questions that YOUR DOCTOR should be answering. Im worried that you somehow obtained the suboxone illegally perhaps?

Your doctor should be answering these questions although I am confident someone on this board would be equally qualified to answer but not pertaining to your medical background, you may have adverse reactions etc.

Whatever you do...... do it right. You've spent enough time doing things wrong which is why you are here. If I am wrong and your doctor just happens to be a complete moron and prescribes suboxone without consulting you on how, why and when then forgive me.

Re: how long FTER LAST OXY??

You don't have to be in withdrawal to start Suboxone. It is good to wait 24 hours so it works well, but not necessary.

I started with 2mg then saw my doctor about an hour later and she said to take another 2mg so I think you'd be fine if you took either dose.

Good luck,

Re: how long FTER LAST OXY??

Take your last oxycontin either in the morning or before bed. "Enjoy" your last little whatever you do with them and if you took it in the morning take the suboxone before bed the next day (BEST ROUTE + Easiest because sleep in middle 40 Hours to) you will be hurtin a bit but it will work nicely and should snap fast. Quite easy with quick acting opiates, much harder with methadone, just do what i'll say you'll be alright. Shoudln't feel a thing just push ur self.

Re: how long FTER LAST OXY??

When I was going to start the sub program I had to be at the rehab at 10am and I was told not to take oxy at all before coming that I had to have 3symptoms of withdrawel. Told that if I took the sub too soon it could send u into a worse detox. Good Luck! Oxys are a ***** to quit, they are the little pills that ran my life and left me with nothing. I hope the subs work for You!

Re: how long FTER LAST OXY??

I keep hearing about the oxy withdrawal to suboxone use. What is SUPPOSED to happen if you take them too close?

Re: how long FTER LAST OXY??

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.
