It already has: You have to be in withdrawal already when starting Suboxone and then it quickly relieves many symptoms. Depending on the opiate usually 12-24 hours is recommended from last use to starting suboxone, degree of relief depends on factors such as amount and type of opiate used and amount of Suboxone given.
