Hi All

I have a script to subs and based on my income can afford to take it about 3 times a week. I had gone 4 days without one, and was doing okay, but stumbled across 3 morphine 60 pills from my old days, buried underneath some stuff. I took them yesterday. Im not proud of it, but it is what is and its in the past. I am now wondering how long I need to wait before I can take a sub. One time and my relatively limited, small dosage each time use of sub makes it so I am not nor will I be going through any sort of serious/physical withdrawals from taking the moprhines. I took them about 28 hours ago at this point (12 am Sunday right now).
I was hoping if by the 48 hour mark, around 8 pm Sunday, would be safe to take the sub. I hope anyone can let me know whether or not after about 48 hours I will still be running the risk of getting sick, or having the subs not work right. I havent slipped up since first starting subs 2 months ago until this incident, so Im fuzzy on the particulars of how this whole concept works. Thanks for any advice.

I think you're fine to go ahead and take the Sub. Waiting to induce is really only for people who've been on opiates regularly enough to have a pretty good tolerance.

I agree. Plus if you've been takling sub all this time, you probably didnt take enough morphine to kick all the sub off of your receptors in the first place. Go ahead and start your sub again.

Thanks a lot for your responses. I figured it was safe, but wanted to be sure. God bless.
