I am going for my first dr app in 3 days. i have been taking 30 to 80 mg of codiene a day for close to four years with 2 short periods of sobriety. I guess my question is "What happens from here?" Dr said be in withdrawals for app, dont take anything for 24hrs prior. thats all the info i really have. Any info and advice would be appreciated. Thank you

Hi and Welcome!

That's pretty much it. Withdrawal your 24 hours and go in. From there your doctor will give you your first dose. Within 20 to 30 minutes, you should start feeling relief. If you're still uncomfortable, your Doctor may give you a second dose. He/She will tell you how many Suboxone you are permitted daily. Most here like to take one daily dose. Ask your doctor any and all questions...don't be afraid to voice your concerns. Come back soon and read the threads...lotsa info jampacked here! Pm me if you want! Good Luck!

Cherish pretty much said it all. Let us know how the induction went and how you're feeling.

But most of all....Welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the advice so far. Today is my last day of taking lortabs, so im getting pretty nervous about wd tomorrow. i have heard that the dr drug test you periodically, is that true? and what are the rules about drinking while taking sub? I am not an alcoholic but i do work in a bar and drink on occasion. i was also told that drinking tomorrow might make wd easier? :?
