    They generally recommend that you are in mild to moderate withdrawals before starting with Sub. Make sure you don't start it too soon, or it will bring on w/d symptoms that will make you feel like death.

    Hope this helps.

    Peace,

    what were you taking and how much? you should wait between 12 - 24 hours for short acting opiates and longer for long acting ones (like oxycontin). but tat is right, as long as you're in mild to modrate withdrawls you'll be ok.

    good luck,

    michelle
