    Hello all,
    SWIM was prescribed subutex last week for opiate withdrawal and have seen several areas where people talk about snorting or injecting it. SWIM is on 2 mgs in the morning and 2 mgs in the evening and has also been taking Klonopin and Prozac. SWIMS question is if I wanted to inject or snort subutex, how would I go about it?

    Thanks

    I read that link Sparkles and all they talk about is injecting Suboxone. Swims question is about injecting Subutex. Swim has a rx for Subutex and have been taking 4 mgs for the last 4 days and wonder if injecting or snorting it now would send swim into w/d. If not, how much should I start out doing?

    no you wont go into w/d. inject the same amount you would take orally. It honestly doesn't feel any different. You get maybe a slight body high which doesn't feel like an opiate rush at all - just relaxation. But this only lasts for about 5-10mins.

    It really isn't worth going through all the BS of drawing up the subutex and putting it in SWIM's vein and having SWIM's arm all fucked up when SWIM could have simply put it in the mouth for EXACTLY the same effect.

    Subutex only gets someone high if they are very new to the medication. This phase should last around 7-10 days. After that SWIM should experience a good well being and the feeling of not wanting to use. Basically SWIM's opiate receptors are healing when built up fully in the system.

    If anything SWIM should snort the Subutex, SWIM actually finds it better the injecting and dissolving it under SWIM's tongue.

    SWIM discovered that subutex lasts about this long when taking in various methods...

    Oral Dissolve - 12-16hrs
    Snorting - ~12hrs
    Injecting - ~8-12 hrs.

    SWIM has tried all methods and SWIM prefers to snort over them all. SWIM was a heroin addict for 5 years and loved the needle.
