I tried looking for an answer to this all over the internet but to no avail.

So I was supposed to start suboxone on sunday and my doc told me to wait about 12 hrs. Well I waited for about 13 hrs (although I didn't feel much in withdrawal) and I took the sub. First 1mg, then 1 hr later,3mg. That turned out to be a big mistake. I spiraled in to TERRIBLE precipitated withdrawals. I was sick for the entire night. I tried to remedy this by taking 2mg more which turned out not to help. I also had my final two opiate pills which also seemed to not help.

What I find weird is that when I woke up this morning, I did not feel as bad as last night. I wasn't sure why that was because I know that suboxone lasts more than 24 hrs. So I took my scheduled suboxone dose, which didn't seem to cause precipitated withdrawals again, but I still feel like crap. What should I do?? Should I keep taking the suboxone? I would call my doc, but the lazy bastard only works like three days a week.

Hey there, welcome to the forum!

You started Suboxone on a Sunday??? That doesn't sound right. Your doctor is supposed to start your induction in his office, supervised! The 12 hours is not enough time either. Most doctors suggest 18 hours, but you'll hear anything for 16 to 24 hours. Either way, you need to be somewhere between mild and moderate withdrawal. If you were to think of it as a 1-10 scale of withdrawal, I would definitely suggest being a 6 or 7. Taking those painkillers probably didn't help much either.

Plus, your doctor needs to be very involved in your induction so he can figure out your daily dosage.

You really need to contact your doctor somehow. Does his voicemail have another number you could call?

Good luck and take care!

Patrick

Did I read this correctly?? Did you take regular opiates while you were trying to induce your Suboxone treatment?? I agree with Patrick, you need to be asking your doctor these questions because it is very much a medical issue.
Also, are you involved in a support group for your treatment?
