Yes. Someone I Know took Suboxone
after waiting only 48 hours from her last (20mg) dose of methadone
. *shudder* She had to go get a bag of heroin
to get out of withdrawals (but didn't get high).
She says she then figured out what they meant by waiting until one's in REAL withdrawals before taking it!!!!
She has since gone on Methadone Maintenance Treatment instead, so she doesn't have to worry about buprenorphine
again for a few more years (when she may or may not come off the methadone).
But yeah...she used to take Suboxone 15-16 hours after her last dose of heroin, then one day THAT made her go into SERIOUS withdrawal
, and she started having to wait at LEAST 30 hours after her last dose of heroin (IV) before she took her bupe, Suboxone or Subutex
, it didn't matter, both would make her sick if taken too early. *shudder*
