Defer to Surgeon: This is not an appropriate question for an online forum. Pain management should be managed in person by the physicians responsible for your care. Pain management is never to be managed by strangers on the internet.

No no no: 4 gm = 500 pills. So you are asking the wrong question. But 4 mg would still not be used concurrently with other full agonist opioids. And Suboxone is an opioid.
