I have been taking Suboxone for a few years now for addiction to Hydrocodone(Lortab). Today I was moving furniture and I hurt my back really bad so I went to the walk in clinic down the street from my house and the Doctor there gave me a script for Lortab. I took 2 today Lortabs to day but not the sub now I am wondering what will happen if I stop taking the Suboxone and take the Lortabs? I really scared myself when I did that but the pain is so unbearable. Will I go thru withdrawals from Suboxones or will the Lortab stop that? I didn't get high at all from the Lortabs but it DID help with the pain. Any advice anyone can give would really help!

I had to have two surgeries since I started Suboxone 2 years ago. I had to stop the Suboxone so I could get pain meds (IV dilaudid and then percocet). Both times when the pain was tolerable post surgery, I started back on Suboxone without any problems. My doctor told me pain meds will not help you until the Sub is out of your system. That's what Sub does. It blocks the pain receptors with naloxone (in suboxone) so that is why it is pointless to take any opiates while on suboxone. Sub also has a small amount of opiates to keep you from detoxing. I waited about 24 hours when I got my first IV dose of dilaudid and I barely felt this powerful opiate. After a few days, it started working. Like I said, I went right back on Suboxone when the pain was tolerable. I hope this helps. Good luck
