What should I do if I have been cut off suboxone, and are wanting to know how long the withdrawal lasts?

Depends: Many addiction experts would say that the length of withdrawal symptoms is correlated to the total length of opioid dependence multiplied to some extent by the strength of the opioids abused. There are unknown coefficients in the equation but that is a rule of thumb. For some people who have very severe dependency it can last months although for less severe dependency possibly weeks to even days! ...Read more

I am having trouble quitting oxycodone/suboxone. How long are these withdrawal symptoms supposed to last?

I am having trouble quitting oxycodone/suboxone. How long are these withdrawal symptoms supposed to last?

Quiting Opiates: Suboxone is used to help with addiction to opiates like oxycodone. Maybe you need to get yourself on a maintenance dose of suboxone which you can then slowly taper off over time. In my experience, patients often will need to stay on suboxone for about half the amount of time they abused opiates. So, if a person took oxycodone for 4-5 years, they may need the suboxone for a couple of years. ...Read more

Why does a long half-life mean a long withdrawal? Xanax (alprazolam) and oxycodone have short hls but w/d can last months. Why would suboxone. Be longer?

Why does a long half-life mean a long withdrawal? Xanax (alprazolam) and oxycodone have short hls but w/d can last months. Why would suboxone. Be longer?

Time Dependency: Narcotic withdrawal times and severity are complex phenomena and not easy to summarize. The time it takes the body to get rid of narcotics (half-lives) may have far more to do with length and severity of dependence, malnutrition, sleep deprivation and kidney and liver function than the pharmacokinetic profile of the drug. Please speak with your pain management specialist for specific advice. ...Read more

Would 5 days be long enough for 8mg of Suboxone to be out of a person urine if used every day for two weeks
?

No: The opiate will be in your system for longer than 5 days, even at this relatively low dose. More importantly, there is a reason you wisely chose to take suboxone and you may want to consider a moderate taper: 8 mg, 4 mg, 2 mg. I would speak with your provider about this option. ...Read more

How long should I take Suboxone for?

Open ended: A general answer to the question, "how long should I stay on suboxone?" would not do justice to the uniqueness of this therapy. In the ideal world a few weeks or months and then stop & some do succeed. However, as long as potential for harm is higher from being on vs off, the on option is preferred. Everyone should be given a chance to get off, when they are ready to get off. ...Read more
