I've been on Suboxone for just give days. I'm taking 4mg a day. NOW I have to have surgery on Friday. (2 days from now on June 23rd.) I'm gonna be back on pain meds. Oxycodone 30mg qid. My question is, how long should I wait to take the pain meds b/c I'm gonna be in pain. Like I said I've only been on the subs for 5 days at 4mg a day. My Doctor says since I've been on the subs for only five days, I should be ok. I say giving it 24 hours couldn't hurt. Your input is greatly appreciated.
