Will Suboxone cause you to go into worse withdrawals if you take it when going through actual oxycontin withdrawals?

No: Suboxone will help withdrawls from oxycotin. If you are not in withdrawls already and then take suboxone, it will cause what is called precipitated withdrawls. Suboxone is very helpful with relieving withdrawls and cravings for persons with an addiction to opiates such as oxycotin.

What's the length of physical withdrawal symptoms from heroin, and which is worse-heroin, suboxone, of methadone-in terms of withdrawal duration and intensity?

What's the length of physical withdrawal symptoms from heroin,  and which is worse-heroin,  suboxone,  of methadone-in terms of withdrawal duration and intensity?

There is no 1 answer: because there is enormous variability between people and all of these opioids (and others). However, in general heroin and other short-acting drugs produce a 5-10 day acute withdrawal, usually worst at 24-72 hours and is VERY severe&then improves, but a post-acute withdrawal which is milder but can last months. Buprenorphine is milder than methadone;both peak at 72 hours but can last many weeks. ...Read more

Unlikely to show: Unless urine test specifically looks for buprenorphine, it's unlikely to detect that drug, which would be in very low concentration by then. It's still best to be honest with your physician when he asks about drug intake. ...Read more

Methadone vs Sub: Methadone detoxification takes place at controlled outpatient clinics as well as some inpatient facilities. At this time Buprenorphine (subutex, suboxone) is preferred over methadone. It is possible to transition from 500 mg Oxycontin to buprenorphine, with properly planned induction in a doctor controlled environment advised. An addiction med specialist or addiction psychiatrist can be useful. ...Read more

How long does Suboxone withdrawal last for?

It depends: It depends on the daily dose the person was last receiving before stopping. Short term, the most severe withdrawal symptoms generally do not last much longer than three to five days or up to about a week. The longer term return to normal functioning for anyone coming off opiates can last much longer, even up to six months to one year. That has been called post acute withdrawal syndroms or paws. ...Read more
