I took my last dose around 11:30pm last night&I am leaving for St. Louis at 2pm, won't be home until 9pm tomorrow night.. I was wondering if I am gonna withdrawal while I am gone? I feel fine so far.. I can't get anymore subs until I get back so I am a bit worried..

It won't be that bad at all. You'll probably feel a little off and you MAY make it seem worse in your head, but in reality, you will not start withdrawing from suboxone until about 3 days in. It's mostly psychological when skipping a dose. Try not to think about it and it'll be tomorrow night before you know it.

I'll mirror what Tiny said, you shouldn't have much issue aside from the mental worry that you can now put on the back burner.

When RB ran trials for buprenorphine (Suboxone/Subutex) they were actually investigating the possibility of it being appropriate for every-other-day dosing and a lot of people in that study reported doing fine with 48 hour dosing in terms of not experiencing intolerable symptoms and still experiencing pronounced blocking effect when/if other opioids were taken. I don't recall how the 48 hour dosing group rated their craving levels and that would be my only concern with you being right on the edge of potentially dropping below the ceiling towards the end of your experience. At that point, distract, distract, distract, don't take any other opioids; you have a light at the end of a rather short tunnel - you can take your buprenorphine right away when you get back.

A client mine told me that for the first year that he was on buprenorphine he 'had to' (we cleared up that terminology right away) sell part of his prescription to pay for the physician visit and swore that taking it never more than every-other-day for that one year he was 'totally fine,' one could argue that he might not have been the most mentally stable person in the world by societal standards (WHO is completely, anyway, first year in any form of recovery/remission?!) due to his diversion and activities surrounding that, but physically he said he was fine for up to 48+ hours without feeling any real physical withdrawal setting in.

Let us know how it goes for you!
