Please tell me if it is safe to take suboxone approximately 10 hours after opiate usage?

Use as prescribed: If this is what your doctor suggested you should follow his or her recommendation. 10 hours is usually okay if the opiate is short acting and may need to wait longer if its a long acting opiate. As a general rule you want to be experiencing moderate withdrawals which your doctor can discuss with you. Good luck.
