I am pretty pissed right now.. and please don't lecture. I wanted to give people the straight scoop on Suboxone and how long it blocks other opiates because I've been a guinea pig lately and have first hand knowledge of what's what.
For every 8MG tablet that you take, you will need AT LEAST 24 hours before anything else will even work and even then it's only going to be halfway felt.
I took 2 and a half 8MG Suboxone on Monday around 2PM.. It is now Thursday at 11:50AM and I STILL could not feel the 40MG OC that I just ate 15 minutes ago!!!
It's been a full 3 days and I couldn't feel that pill in the slightest bit!!
So basically, don't waste your money if it hasn't been at least 36 hours since you took Suboxone. It's ridiculous how long that stuff lasts! WTF??
-Also I see a TON of misinformation about Suboxone floating around. If you take a different opiate AFTER you take Suboxone, you WILL NOT go into withdrawls. It just blocks it.
-The naltroxone in the Sub's IS NOT what blocks other drugs!!!! It is the bupe itself bound soo tightly to the receptors that nothing else introduced into the system can knock them off.
-Bupe is SOO STRONG that a shot of pure naltroxone if you were OD'ing on Suboxone would not even work very much because even THAT can't knock all the buperenorphine off your brain!
I just wanted people to have a first hand account of how long it takes cuz I always see soo much wrong info and speculation.
I am a recovering H addict who still bounces back and forth between OC's and Suboxone, but I'm slowly doing better. I have a TON of experience with opiates so I know what I'm talking about.
Telex's rule of thumb for bupe: Wait AT LEAST 36 hours for each 8mg pill you take. Even if you take 2 of them at the same time, it's still going to be AT LEAST 72 hours before you'll feel anything.
Like I said.. I took 2 and a half on Monday at 2PM and STILL had a 40MG OC COMPLETELY blocked at 11:30AM on THURSDAY!!!
