Specializes in Addiction Medicine

dependent on heroin, and you take suboxone/subutex before you are in significant withdrawal (usually at least 24 hours), the Suboxone will precipitate a VERY SEVERE WITHDRAWAL, because it takes ALL the heroin off your receptors, replacing it with a very sticky drug that wont come off those receptors, but only activates them 20%. It can make you VERY sick. Get professional help for your addiction.
