Can you take percocet with suboxone?


If you need to take a percocet,I dont suggest it.The suboxone has a 36 hour half life.That means that in 36 hours half of the medicine will still be in your system.If you take a percocet while also taking the suboxone you wont feel the percocet and in turn could be very dangerous.While on the suboxone just ask if there is a non narcotic pain reliever you can take. Any comments?

    You are taking a really low dose of Suboxone. Any-ways, years ago when I first started taking Suboxone, I relapsed, more than one, and for about the first two months you can feel the effects of your opiate of choice, for you this will probably only last 2 weeks, it will continues to lessons into nothing (no high effect). What happened to you was, you just started taking Suboxone, which brings a high similar to morphine, codeine, due to the Buprenorphine (Ingredient 1) The Buprenorphine attaches firmly to the receptors. At adequate maintenance doses, buprenorphine fills most receptors and blocks other opiates from attaching. Since you just started taking Suboxone, it has not had a chance to fill majority of the receptors, allowing the other opiate (percocet) to attach, continuing your high. Buprenorphine has a long duration of action, so its effects do not wear off quickly.To Sum it UP: You got high off of the Suboxone and then the Percocet. This will happen less and less as you continue to take Suboxone.On a personal note: Dont listen to the Sboxone bashers and think you have only 2 months to take it and get off. In other words, dont rush your recovery. You are on a very low dose and when you are READY to get off, it will only take you a couple of weeks. I still take Suboxone, was on a much harder drug than percocet, and I plan to continue to take it. It is my safty net, I know if I were to go get my opiate of choice it would be pointless, a waist of money, I couldnt get high. I have been clean for 2 years and bad days still come along, not often, but the temptation is still there and there is no way I am going to give up a regulated safe medication that keeps me from an over used dangerous drug.
