I have been on 12 mgs of Subutex for a year, had hernia surgery today and received Dilaudid through the IV 3:00pm PST. I took 8 mgs. this morning before the surgery b/c the original plan involved no narcotic just an increase in my subutex to 16 mgs. for a few day post-surgery and Ibuprofen. How long do I wait until I take my second dose of Subutex to avoid any precipitated withdrawls? Called my prescribing Doc but haven't heard back yet.

It doesn't matter. You can just take it.

I agree with Jackcrack, you don't need to wait. I've been in your position and just returned to my suboxone with no delay.
Good luck!

Everyone is (of course) correct in their advice to you. The Suboxone actually blocked all or most of the Dilaudid that was given to you - unless they gave you significantly more than the typical 1mg or perhaps 2mg dose - and even then it's not likely to have had much effect. Not sure why the original plan got changed but you are not at risk for precipitated withdrawal unless you stop taking Suboxone. Taking narcotics on top of Suboxone just results in the narcotics not having much if any effect.

Thanks everyone! So, my sub is in. The plan changed b/c when I awoke from the surgery I had the worst headache of my life and so they quickly gave me somehting through the IV and I found out it was Dilaudid. But I only have my Ibuprofen here at home with me and the plan is back on track!
