I just had knee surgery one week ago. My long time suboxone Dr. has sent me one box of the strongest
Subox in order to get off pain meds. The problem is I don't believe I will have withdrawal effects in stopping the 10/325 OxyContin I've been taking. Eight years ago I successfully went thru mild withdrawal from my Oxy addiction and have been on the lowest dose of Subox for the last 3 years.
What will happen if there are no withdrawal symptoms that are required to re-introduce Subox?
I'm supposed to do this today.

Ok odd but I'm answering my own question. I successfully re-introduced the Subox this morning and it is working like a gem. 2 films done, pain level at 2!
I talked to my Subox Doc and he said that since I only took the post surgery opiates for less than a week (6 days exactly) my brain should not have a problem taking them again. This was a painful knee surgery that now looks like a quite successful surgery thanks to Subox!

Glad it worked out for you. I mistakenly got off the Suboxone at 1 mg and transitioned over to 10 mg's of hydrocodone w/o any problem. My surgery was pretty intense so I stayed on the Lortabs for just about 3 weeks. Took my regular dose at 9 PM, waited until noon the next day and took 6 mg's of Suboxone and finally felt some relief. The pain pills did nothing to help ease my pain whatsoever. Now I know not to stop the Suboxone but to add another strong pain med to help instead. Live and learn. This site has taught me everything I ever needed to know about Bupe.

Relax and recover,
