    Congrats on stopping methadone! I rarely took it (for pain) and never got above 40 mg. It knocked me out badly. I did take subs for about 3 months, but ended up back on oxycodone after an unexpected surgery.

    9 days should definitely be enough to avoid precipitated withdrawals. I was on Oxy and waited 36 hours, and had no problems. Some people react badly to the naloxone though, and have to take straight buprenorphine (like Subutex).

    I hope things work out well for you!

    Hi Go2! You might want to start your own thread on your questions so others can see it easier in the forum.

    Personally, I’d say taking hydrocodone to get a brief boost isn’t the best thing to do, but I also don’t think it will affect your methadone detox, other than adding a strong psychological craving, and possibly a new addiction down the road.

    I wish you well on your journey though! I totally dig anyone taking steps to wellness.

    Regards!
