I'm a little confused.....

I'm a current Suboxone user(12mgs) daily. I am under the impression that while on Suboxone no opiate will be effective, is this true information? I've heard and read so many mixed things maybe this is the best place to put this question out there:

Are your receptors blocked from opiates while on Suboxone?

Any help is appreciated!

Hi Wen,
I can’t believe it’s been this long since your post and there has been no reply. I’m not a doc but I may be able to help because of my history and discussions with the doc.
The doc took me off Suboxone and put me on Opiates because of an up coming surgery. He gave me more Opiates then I had ever taken when I abused them and I felt absolutely nothing as far as a “high” goes but they did help the pain I was having in my legs. I think what they are saying when they say it blocks the Opiates from working they mean that we can’t get a high from them no matter how hare we try. The only thing that we might do is keep taking more and more of them to get the high, that we take too many and kill ourselves unintentionally.
After I came off the Opiates (I was on them about 2 months) and back on Suboxone, I told the doc that I get no high from the opiates at all. He said the he felt the Opiates would be calling the shots if I were on them a few more months. I take that to mean I would start to feel them again by that time and I would be hooked again.
So, my conclusion is that yes the Opiates work on pain but they won’t work for the high. One note here and it may be the whole of your question; that is that you can’t take Suboxone and Opiates without the Suboxone causing you to go into withdrawal.
I hope some part of this helps.
