I've been on Subs for over a year taking about 3 mg a day. About 4 days ago I took some Oxycontin, a few Dilaudid, and today some Morphine pills; all orally. It's been about a 5 day run. Today I went the whole day until about 5 pm and felt no withdrawals. My plan was to wait until just before bedtime and then start with a half a mg, and then move up from there if I felt OK.

I've done this a couple times before and managed to get back on Subs without any precipitated WD, but one time I did have a bad 20 minutes, but that was after being on Oxys for a over a week.. It's 1am here, and my last dose was 2 hours ago, so my question is whether I'll likely be OK taking a little suboxone tomorrow night midnite. It's important to mention that I was never in physical WD any of the times I went back on suboxone. I have a little valium to help me get thru the day, and some Ambien to maybe take a nap tomorrow.

As long as your waiting as close to 24 hrs as possible,,,,
I dont THINK you will have a problem.......

I'd do it, just as you have planned though, starting with just a little bit, to make sure.

I would say you'd only have to wait 12+ hours if it was JUST oxy's,,,, but since you took morphine too,,,
it WOULD be a good idea to wait longer.

Are you happy with the way things have been going????
I mean, using a "few" times, as you say over the course of a year???

Just asking....................

Hope this helps

Thanks for asking, but you might be sorry;)

No, I'm not happy about it at all. In fact I would love to get completely off of everything. I used to have 18 years clean and sober in AA, and those were the best and most productive years of my life. A diagnosis of Osteoarthritis changed all that. My body was aching all the time, so my Doctor gave me the non narcotic painkiller Tramadol LOL. I got off of those using Suboxone and I'm still on them. I'm also taking a few Ambien a night to get to sleep, and during the day I'll take a half a Klonopin twice a day. Not a horrible habit, but just enough to keep me unhappy;)

Just wanted to comment that I made it about 30 hours until I took the Suboxone. Ironically I didn't feel any WD symptoms at all. I guess my metabolism is a little slow or something. I finally took a half gram to test and then 2 grams (1/4 of an 8 mg strip). I felt a bit icky for a few minutes but have been fine since.

Now if I could just get off the Ambien, and then off the Suboxone, I could really start living life as it should be. Sometimes I feel that I'll never get back to normal in this life. I have such poor discipline.

Thanks for the encouragement. Occasionally I get a burst of enthusiasm, and I'm able to easily put together a week clean of all benzos. The last couple of times things have happened to get me started again. I'm hoping for another burst soon, so I can get 30 days under my belt and then start slowly tapering off the subs.
