I'm 4 days off heroin, dosed approx 16mg suboxone 14 hours after my last dose, which barely held me so I took another 4mg a few hours later which helped slightly. I then took 6mg bupe the next morning after waking up with intense stomach cramps, and 6mg yesterday morning. It's been over 24 hours since my last dose of bupe and the withdrawal symptoms are minor now, I don't want to take any more bupe if I can help it.
I have read that bupe has a higher binding affinity than naltrexone, so I'm thinking it would be a waste of time taking the naltrexone to try and speed up the detox, but I thought I'd ask here anyway.
Is there any benefit at all in taking naltrexone, will it speed up the withdrawal or do nothing at all?
