After 27 days of no hydrocodone and taking suboxone I relapsed. I found a 10mg hydrocodone this morning and I took it. I did not take my suboxone which I normally take in the morning. Ofcourse I didn't feel anything at all. Should I go ahead and take my suboxone now or should I wait till tomorrow??

Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks

You'll probably be just fine to take it now.

I mean, as long as your suboxone dose is over 8mg/day theres no way one hydro "punched" thru anything.

what dose have you been taking??

If it were me, Id go ahead and take the suboxone, and LEARN from my experience.

dont beat yourself up, this is anything but an easy road. :wink:

good luck,and good job being honest and upfront

I try not to give advice...since my life has been cosmically in shambles for 10+ yrs MMT, 1 yr ORLAAM, 8 months of heroin, 2 yrs pills &c. ... the best I can hope for is to crack a weak joke from time to time. Laughing produces endorphins. Even if I'm the only one giggling. But I am earnest & sincere and never intentionally malicious. (except when my old dealer called me up this morning)

But something someone told me once in line at the methadone clinic stuck with me in a curious way. He said:
"You will relapse as many times as it takes for you to get the message"
And it took me till last night to realize I had GOT the message. Tomorrow is another day

It's okay to go ahead and take your Suboxone. At least now you know how the pain meds will not work anymore, even at 1mg. I was on 1mg for about 4 months last year when I needed surgery. Felt every little bit of pain while taking the Hydro. Took two complete weeks to get some relief and by then the pain had subsided.

My wife takes Norco 10's every day and I can just look at the bottle and think nothing of it. I would really have to plan a relapse for several weeks to feel any full agonist. Now others here will tell you differently. Some say they felt a Vicodin the next day after taking an 8mg film. We all have different metabolisms but it looks like yours is like mine.

Doesn't that make it easier to not slip?

Cast it away and move on.

May I ask why you are just on 1mg.??
Did you have a very small case of addiction, meaning you were not taking that many hydros??

I would take the sub..and not worry about it.
I also would move on. like everyone else has said...and don't beat yourself up...but I am still confused as to why
you are just on 1mg. of sub?? That would make me want hydrocodone.
Everyone is different, and Iam sure you have your reasons, and may not want to share. I hope you do not consider
me too curious...but I am curious just the same.

Best of luck to you,
Slipper
