Hello. I am reaching out for some help. I was on subutex maintenance for approx. 3 mos up until last thursday (nov 14). I have been doing H from thursday night thru till Monday. I was currently on 4 -8mg tabs of subutex prior to the relapse. The amount of H I did went like this: thurs. 12 bags, friday 6 bags, saturday 16 bags, sunday 12, and monday 20. I know that that is alot but I was not at all looped. I kinda felt just a little high. I have a problem I'm sure like alot of addicts that when I start I go off like an animal. I am very ashamed of myself although I've been here before. I just want to get back on track so my question of course is, should I def. wait the 24 hrs and feel sick enough to take the med and do you think that my receptors were still covered by the bupe? I am taking Subutex not Suboxone. Any input would greatly be appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this..........

You could risk trying Suboxone early and go into precipitated wd or you could wait it out, go into regular wd and induce onto Suboxone. Me, I'd choose the latter.

If you do roll the dice and try Suboxone early, start with a low dose of 1mg or 2mg. That's usually not enough to send you into full blown PW, but it is enough to let you know if you're safe or not to start yet.

Good luck, man.

Ok got ya. I figured I would just wait until I got sick like you said. I will start off slow. I had heard that the 24 hr mark is a good gauge of time. Question, what if you are not feeling sick after 24 hrs? Is it safe to dose? Should I go past 24hrs and go strictly on the dope sickness??????
