If already in withdrawal from Oxycodone, can I take the suboxone without gettin precipitated WD even if it's only been 15-17hrs since last dose of oxy?

Most likely: officially, you need to wait at least 24 hours. Practically, many people do it and even earlier. Legally, you need to do it in the presence of your doctor. Practically, if you are sweating, have muscle cramps, goosebumps, diarrhea – you can do it. Just start with a very small piece of the film to test if you are not precipitating further problems. good luck. Get treatment. ...Read more

Tramadol! Becareful : Use of tramadol is not recommended in those with history of substance dependency. Many overlook this point. Suboxone is also an opiate and more potent than tramadol. Its best to start low and taper fast when detoxing from tramadol by using suboxone. Every situation is unique and these are generalizations. Support groups and consultation with an addiction specialist is advised. Best of luck. ...Read more
