I have been up and down about taking Suboxone while in mild to moderate withdraws. I obtained some for emergencies, and here I am. I take Opana, Duladid and an occasional Oxycodone. I am under a health care professional who prescribes me the Opana. When I run short, I obtain the latter two. I have lowered my dosages almost to nothing, but am beginning to withdraw from the opiates. I am not educated on Suboxone, but read a lot about participative withdraw if you take it too soon. My withdraw at this time isn't as bad as it has been, but it's bad. I took just a fraction of my Opana this morning, about 3.75 mg and am deteriorating quickly. Do I need to wait the 12-24 hours before I use suboxone to help get me through until my doctor's appointment late tomorrow? I really just don't have time to slow down, but I don't want to make a bad situation worse. Please hit me back with some advice if you can. Thanks!

It's the severity of withdrawal that's more important than time since you last dosed. You want to be in moderate withdrawals. You can look up the COWS scale and score yourself and if you're in moderate withdrawals it should be safe to take Suboxone.
