See the Doctot: The best answer is to see an addiction specialist or pain management practitioner. This is never something to be done by yourself!
A 33-year-old member asked:

For someone who has just started Suboxone in a treatment facility, today being day 1, when will withdrawal happen?

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.

I've heard of inpatient units where patients were given 8 mgs of Suboxone when they first walked on the unit and without withdrawal checks.

A 28-year-old member asked:

Which is a better treatment option for opioid addiction, Suboxone or methadone?

Depends: Suboxone can be prescribed at a doctor office, has anticraving effect and antianxiety effect via kappa receptors. Methadone is a full opioid agonist must be given from a Methadone clinic, cheap. Suboxone in my experience is easier to use and titrate, has less withdrawal symptoms and when used with pregnant women is easy to titrate down. Newborns have little withdrawal.

Depends: If you are taking something like Prilosec , it is ok to take 2 in a day. Zantac is taken twice a day. Antacids, like Tums (calcium carbonate) can be taken more frequently- as needed.
