I have taken Suboxone and Opiates at the same time. I have serious pain issues and needed relief and so tried pain pills. I did not get sick but it did not work either ( meaning pain was not relieved). I was relieved not to feel high but was desperate for the pain to go away. Now it has been 48 hours since my last suboxone (2 mg.) I was on suboxone for a year and as I weaned down my pain became worse. Today, the pain pills helped a little bit but not nearly as much as they should. I did not get any high (fortunately). I have doctors visits this week to deal with this situation. If you are in pain and are an addict, it is a tough spot to be in and I wish you luck. However, if you just want to get high try and think back to when you were on pain meds and why you went on suboxone in the first place. Do you really want to go there again?
No, but the suboxone will block the action of whatever other opiate you are taking, so you'd be wasting it.
It depends. Suboxone blocks the receptors for opiates and prevent you from getting "high" sometimes people keep taking the opiates until they feel it which would likely cause an overdose. Its just a waste to take anything because you arent going to feel it
If you take suboxone by injecting it into your veins,you wil get very ill.Otherwise the opiates just won't work.You have to wait 72 hours-but also a lot depends on how much suboxone you take & for how long. It's best to talk to your prescribing Physician. It's known that the component in suboxone that is the narcotic,alone without the naltrexon can relieve pain-minor pain. Educate your ER's about this so that addicts who are successfully sober with the help of suboxone don't have to suffer if in an accident .Otherwise,if a surgery is scheduled, you can go off the suboxone for the 72 hrs or longer prior to said operation
