Taking Vicodin After Suboxone
I have been taking suboxone for 10 years. Jan, 1, 2016 I Take none. How much longer will I feel horrible, irritable? Is Vicodin a safer way to quit?

If you used Suboxone 8/2mg daily for 10 years it is nearly impossible to just quit it, You will go through significant withdraws for weeks. Suboxone treatment depend on your commitment and depends almost solely on you, Suboxone dose should be redused gradually over good period of time, somewhere from 6 months to several years.

Have taken. 25 suboxone for 2 days to stop a 2 year, 8 Vicodin a day habit. Should I taper further or try to stop suboxone now?
What happens if prescribed vicodin, will doctors test for suboxone, and/or will it show up in a urine test?
Depends: On whether they are testing for it. Some test kits that doctors use test for all commonly used opioids (like methadone, demerol, (meperidine hydrochloride) buprenorphine - the opiate in suboxone) and others do not. But if you are saying you are on suboxone, it is because you are an opiate abuser. If that is the case, you should NOT be using vicodin, and you are playing games with your treatment. Get serious and STOP! ...Read more

Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen): This is a major problem. You failed both Methadone/Suboxone which is very odd. Did you see Psychology while you were on Methadone/Suboxone?

I think more importantly you need support, psychology and group therapy while you wean ...Read more
