Today was my first day on suboxone. I had been using up to 300 mg a day of oxycodone for 3 years. Last week I tapered down to 40 mg a day. I went 50 hours without oxy before my dose of suboxone film and after 3 hours, I passed out in the chair. When I woke up and up until now (12 hours later) I've had a smalll headache and mild nausea. I read that a drug called Zofran is non-drowsy and works well for the nausea. Has anyone here had any experience with this med successfully?

Tomorrow I plan on taking only 2 mg of the sub film to see what happens.

Any advice on this is GREATLY appreciated!

Before you introduce another drug, I would try spitting out your saliva about 20 after you dose. Some people get headaches from swallowing the naloxone that is left behind after the Bupe is absorbed. The nausea could be from too high of a dose, or it could be that you just need a couple of days to adjust. I would recommend going down to 4mg rather than 2, because 4 is generally accepted to be the ceiling level, where your body can get to a steady state of bupe and not have highs and lows.
Good luck.

i have taken zofran for vomiting before. generally i've been on promethazine for it. it's an effective medication, but one i've found to be sorta cost prohibitive strangely for a generic, but hell that could of just been the walgreens i went to. i agree that this may just be the effects of induction onto the suboxone. check with your doc or pharmacist before you throw it in the mix as far as i know, zofran requires an rx so unless it's something you already have on hand you'll need to ask the doc anyway.

I appreciate the replies. :)

I thought you had to swallow the collected saliva, otherwise not get any (or very little) bupe. The whole sublingual thing is a new experience for me and I don't like it cuz it takes forever for the thing to dissolve 100%, tastes bad, etc.

I just wish there was a regular pill for this.
