I have been on suboxone for a month now and it had been going smoothly. I had been steady on 2 mg/daily and having no desire to use.

Well a confluence of events occurred, eventually ending with me using oxycodone last night. I took my usual dose of suboxone earlier that day.

How long do I need to wait to go back on suboxone. Should I take my usually dosage tomorrow morning, or do I need to wait 24 hours until withdrawal symptoms start.

Thank you for your help.

If you have been taking your dose of Suboxone each day, then you should be fine just continuing it today. When people have surgery, I have them continue their Suboxone product each day, and I have them take oxycodone every 4 hours as needed. They get pain relief, but no 'high' or other effects-- and there is no precipitated withdrawal. My only concern would be if you stopped Suboxone for more than a day or two, and THEN used-- and in that case I'd say to wait about 12 hours before taking Suboxone again.

Ok, thank you for the response.

I haven't skipped any days of the suboxone, so I'll take my normally schedule dose this morning.

Hi Steve,

That was nice to get an answer from our good doctor on the forum. Just a FYI, I deleted your double post in the Induction section. You only need to post in one. If we feel it's in the wrong section, we move it to the proper one.

Welcome to the forum and we hope you stay in recovery and make this forum a daily place to come visit. This forum is a large part of my own recovery.
