Hello all, Can anyone tell me how long you have to wait from last dose of opiate to begin Subutex? I heard Subutex has no wait period but, is that true? I am so scared of going into immediate W/D. Thanks

When it comes to induction, subutex is really no different from suboxone - it just doesn't have the naloxone in it. But it essentially works the same way. You have to be in mild to moderate withdrawals before your induction otherwise you will suffer through precipitated withdrawals when you take your first dose. I've never heard of any version of either suboxone or subutex being "no wait".

Here's a copy of the COWS to help you to induce: http://www.naabt.org/documents/cows_ind ... _sheet.pdf

It will help you to ascertain the state of your withdrawals. Good luck and I hope this helps. Ask any more questions that you may have and we'll try to help. And welcome to the forum. :)

TO LISASLIFE: My first sub dr. made me wait 12 hours. She even wrote me a script for hydrocodone to get me through the rest of the day (asked me how many I would need!!)....then she said take nothing after midnight and the next morning I could start my suboxone. She also did not dose me in the office..so I don't know how good she was. My new
Dr. dosed me in the office and made me wait 24 hours. This is just how they did me, I don't know whether it is right or not.
Good luck to you!.......Judy

Sober.com is more or less an advertising site for treatment facilities and halfway houses and is full of misinformation as far as I can tell... This sums it up:

"Suboxone is a drug used to treat opiate and heroin addictions. It contains the two important alcoholic-treatment chemicals: naloxone and buprenorphine."

Yeah....ok...

Hi! I think it will be best to talk to your doctor before starting any treatment.
