SWIM's doctor told SWIM that they need to be down to 80mg of oxycontin a day for the suboxone to work. I was presribed 2 pills in the morning and 2 at night (the maximum dosage, SWims doctor told SWIM that anymore than that would have no effect) I am only down to 1 80mg oxy in the morning and 1 40mg at night. Do you think I will have trouble and that the suboxone won't work? SWIM might need to switch to methadone since the one 80mg oxy a day isnt cutting it at all. I was told that he needs to be down to the equivalant of 30-40 mg of methadone. Is this true or does my doctor not know what hes talking about???
