I need help! I've been on subs 16mg/day for 2 years. I had unexpected surgery on Wednesday, had taken last sub wednesday at 12, had surgery at 4. Started on lortab thurs morning. I took 10mg every 2 hours on thurs...no pain relief. I did the same fri...no pain relief. Today (sat) I took 20 mg at 9:30am, 10mg at 12:00, 10mg at 1:00...no pain relief. I'm not feeling too good now and I'm ready to give up on lortab for pain relief. Can I start my subs back now(6:30pm sat), I feel like I'm in a bit of withdrawal but not sure if it's withdrawal or the pain kicking my butt. I can't take anymore lortab today because I've already reached max on Tylenol for the day. Do I have to wait til sun morning to get back on subs?

In my opinion,,,, and limited experience,,,,,,

if you've taken 16mg of suboxone, on a REG basis,,,, up until your surgery just a few days ago, those few days of lorotab, hasnt even been enough to 'override' your suboxone yet.
so yea, you should be JUST fine to start suboxone, NOW.
You will MOST LIKELY get relief from it too. and take some motrin,, that MAY help!!!!

Ive only experienced dental surgery, but in my case, I was fine.

You can always start small, if your scared of precipitated w/d,, you know, take 4mg lets say, and see how you feel.
give it a half hour, and take more if all is well.

Hope that helps, and HOPE you get some relief SOOOON!!!

good luck
any more questions, just ask :wink:

Suffering,

i saw your post and wanted to comment because i am hurting to. i would not take the suboxone after only 5 1/2 hours. that is why they make you wait 24-72 hours before you can take suboxone from switching to your opiates to suboxone. it needs to be out of ur system before the suboxone can truly work. let me know what u diside to do.

When you've ALREADY been taking suboxone, and 'interupt' for a short time, you dont have to wait the "appropriate'' time for induction, becuase the suboxone, 'stacks' in your system.

Is the short version.

They took the suboxone, about 10 hours (best guess) after the last dose of vics, and everything went smoothly.

BUT, like I said, (and they said, above) Suffering, was ALREADY on suboxone, previously.


AND welcome to the forum!!!!!!!!
