Hi All.
I didn't give the hospital enough notice (although its still working hours, not whinging just saying...) that I need to be dosed early Monday for work. I am call in as well as rostered.
So I'll be missing my dose for the first time.
I'm on 16mg.
Will I be ok?
What can I expect?

So far in my program experience I haven't experienced a hanging out feeling or feel the "need" to be dosed, but I get done at the early session. an hour after I get up. two at the most.

should I ask for extra?
thanks F7.

I think you will be fine as long as you keep busy. If people start to detox from 16 mg (not advisable, but some don't have a choice), they really don't start feeling crappy until day 3 or 4. You should be fine.

I agree with Amy. You should be fine, the worst is actually stressing over it too much. Its amazing the tricks the mind can play.

You definitely will be totally fine. I take 4mg, and if I miss a day I literally don't feel any different. Sub is very long acting, so missing a dose will not have much of an effect. :)
