Hi all. New here. I have been searching these threads, but wanted to ask this question. I took 60 mgs of small white percocets 6 and a half hours ago. I do not take percocets or opiates every day. I use Suboxone recreationaly maybe 1 or 2 times a week recently. I take 8mgs of Suboxone usually when I do take it. I was wondering if I can take a Suboxone now. I am not feeling the percocets anymore. I have a pretty high tolerance for percocet and I do not go through withdrawels when I don't take them. Has anyone taken a Suboxone earlier than the recommended 12 hours. (Which I was told 12 hours by a nurse to wait) Do you think I'll be fine if I just take it? I don't want to get sick or anything. Like I said I don't go through withdrawels ever from not having opiates. Anyone do this before? Please let me know. Thank you!

*UPDATE* So I ended up just taking it..ended up being 7 hours after I took the percs. I am totally fine. Not sick or going through those withdrawl symptoms that is said to happen if you take it too soon. I don't go through physical withdrawls from not taking percocets or other opiates anyway so I never wait til I get withdrawls to take suboxones. I actually get a nice buzz off of suboxone which lasts much longer and is much cheaper. Just pissed I wasted 60 bucks earlier today on percs because couldn't find suboxone anywhere until tonight. The percs didn't hardly do crap anyway. Anyway..kinda rambled on there, but just thought I'd share.
If you aren't dependent on opiates then neither suboxone nor anything else will make you go into withdrawal.
The reason you should wait until you aren't feeling high anymore is so that the naloxone and bup doesn't ruin your high.
When you are using suboxone for getting off off of opiates (/you are physically dependent) it's a different story. Then you do want to wait until you are feeling withdrawal so the opioid levels in your system are low enough that subs can help increase them.
Glad everything worked out.
you're only going to go through precipitated withdrawals if you're physically dependent on opioids in the first place.
i'll direct you to the bupe mega thread which contains and faq on bupe and just about everything you need to know. it's also the place to direct your bupe related questions.
