any advice??

dont get me wrong, i am very thankful for sub, and maybe at some point i'll be in a place where it is the best option for me. but, i have chronic pain - which wasn't bad on subox the first 2 months, but now its gotten worse. also, just fantasize about using all the time - EVEN AT MEETINGS .

i just want to feel good, and not be tempted to go to the streets and use. my back, chronic pain is unbearable, and i am so bored with just feeling blah.

any advice? can i just wait like a day or two then dose at done clinic - even tho i no i prolly wont feel it very much if at all

or should i switch to subutex then stop that 24-48 hrs before dosing methadone

the subutex would be the easiest option, obviously, but it is so hard to get a dam dr to prescribe u subutex

Hey phish, sorry your back pain is so bad right now.

I think you only have to wait when you're switching from methadone to suboxone = to prevent precipitated withdrawals. I don't think it works the same in reverse. I'm pretty sure you could just wait 24 hours and then take your methadone dose - though, as you said, you might not feel it that much because you'll still have some Sub hanging around and because of your tolerance. I guess you'd want the methdone clinic to take your suboxone use into account when they decide your dose.

I know that when I had a kidney stone I got a shot of dilaudid that I totally felt even though I had taken my Suboxone that day. The only difference was that it wore off faster so they had to give me another dose. So that's something to keep in mind.

I hope you get some pain relief soon.
