Hi all, I had a quick question about daily dosing. I am taking my dose once a day, in the morning. My doctor said to try and take the dose at the same time each day, however because of my appointment time this morning and waiting for the pharmacy, I ended up taking my dose in the middle of the morning. I want to get into a pattern of taking it when I get up in the morning, as this is the easiest time for me to take it and I generally get up at the same time every day. So my question is, do you need to be feeling any symptoms of w/d before taking your dose or will I be okay to dose tomorrow at 7:30 even though I had my dose today around 10:30-11 am? Sorry if this is a silly question! I just don't want to do something wrong and/or end up feeling sick.

Thanks!

You don't have to take your dose at the very same exact time every day. No need to wait for w/d if you get off schedule or before the next dose. Just take your dose regularly tomorrow (or today). Suboxone has a mean half-life of 37 hours, so you could take it pretty much anytime throughout the day. You could probably even skip a day and still be fine. Some people even dose only once every other day because of the long half-life. I hope this helps!
