If you get an appointment tomorrow evening or tomorrow morning, you dont need to take another pill. You do not want to go into precipitated withdrawal. Do not take another pill if you get an appointment for tomorrow anytime!

I agree with Goinstrong. I think everyone here will tell you to wait at least 24 hours before starting suboxone. If it were methadone or something stronger than pain pills, I think it's longer, but with pain pills you should be fine waiting 24 hours. I was told 48-72 hours before my appt by the drs office, but the people here on this forum suggested I wait no longer than 24 and I was fine. My DOC was norcos and hydrocodone. I was in pretty bad enough withdrawal when I started after 24 hours and did not go into PW. Good Luck. Let us know if you get an appt soon!
