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

Taking oxycodone 15 mgs. Changing pain docs. Lapse of 4 days. Will I have withdrawals?

Taking oxycodone 15 mgs. Changing pain docs. Lapse of 4 days.  Will I have withdrawals?

Possible withdrawal: Over 4 days without medicine, it is possible to have withdrawal symptoms. It may help if you cut your tablets in half to make them last a little longer. Another option would be to ask your old doc or the pharmacist for a 4 day refill. This is typically honored after using the med a long time. We do not prescribe these medicines on HealthTap, so we probably could not help directly. ...Read more

Is 12-15 hours long enough time after taking oxycodone to take Suboxone without getting early withdrawal?

Is 12-15 hours long enough time after taking oxycodone to take Suboxone without getting early withdrawal?

Depends: If you're taking Suboxone to treat opiod drug addiction, you should wait until you experience some signs of withdrawal, then begin it. If you're taking it for chronic pain, 12-15 hours is certainly not long enough for sustained release oxycodone, and prob not long enough for immediate release oxycodone. For that I recommend about 20 hours. ...Read more

Days to weeks: The physical symptoms rarely last longer than a week, but the cravings may last much longer. Consider attending a meeting of narcotics anonymous. If you are at risk for relapse, you might consult an addiction specialist about using buprenorphine (suboxone). ...Read more

Do nothing foolish!: Ask both doctors to help with the gap - ask a pharmacist too. If you need to do it on your own, plan to have a caring person nearby - set up the most comfortable situation you can w/ lot of favorites - music, films, books, food, etc. and discover how you do. People survive under debris in mine collapses, etc. and this will not be that bad. But ask for help - it may be there for you. ...Read more
