I've been taking 8mg's of Suboxone a day for 8 days now and was wondering seeing tomorrow ill be going a day without it. Will I be ok?
Absolutely not. While Suboxone does bind quite strongly to the receptor going one day without it may result in withdrawal symptoms and signs and these will not be fun for you. As a rule when on an opioid never just cold turkey stop - you really should be weaned off.
Don't stop it... Stopping Suboxone abruptly can and probably will cause withdrawal. If you need to stop the medication suddenly, call the doctor giving you the Suboxone before doing so.
Suboxone. You might have some withdrawal symptoms that develop within a day or so of going without it.
Should be. Suboxone is very long-acting and missing one day will rarely cause very significant withdrawal, although you may have some aches/sniffles/yawning etc. Why do you have to go a day without it would be my question? In general, missing doses is not a good idea. If you have been taking more than you should so you are running out, then you need to stop doing that and talk to your suboxone prescriber.
No. I assume you are feeling okay and not having any cravings, right? That's because you're taking suboxone, not because you don't need it. You should continue to take it and with your doctor's instruction, slowly taper off over time. In my practice, patients must sign a contract that they will not change the dose of Suboxone without first notifying me. You risk withdrawal & relapse from stopping it.
WHY!!!! I am really curious as to why in the world you would do this? Did you overtake the Suboxone and you are out? Did you schedule the appointment wrong?
