Hi, I have been on methadone which I was prescibed for pain for about 3 years. Recently I was told there was a new drug called suboxone that was better, so stupid me wanted to try. First I only waited 24 hours after my last 50mg dose, which was a BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still feel like c**p although the withdrawals are nowhere as severe as they would be without methadone. My question is if I don't start feeling better soon and decide to go back to the methadone, how long should I wait in between. I really never had no problem with the methadone, actually it helped my pain more than any others the docs try. My only grip was every so often having to go up on the dose to keep it helping. So please if anyone could please help me, I would really like to know how long I need to wait before I can take my methadone again without having to get sick again.
