It takes between three-quarters of an hour, and an hour. Many people take them and experience effects within half an hour. It’s great at taking sickness away, but other people would suggest that they still experience the symptoms - so it’s up to you whether or not you believe the hype about being able to control cravings.

Suboxone is a drug that is used to treat an opioid addiction. Opioids are highly addictive kinds of drugs, that include prescription drugs like Oxycontin, and more commonly, heroin. Research that has been performed into the use of suboxone for the use of opioid recovery has been going on for well over 20 years, now.

Suboxone rehab treatment has proven time and time again that the use of suboxone for the treatment of opioid addictions has provided long-term results, and has helped thousands of addicts get rid of their addiction for good. Anybody considering getting rid of their addiction should take suboxone into account as it can offer them some of the best chances of getting over their addiction, along side drug treatment therapy.

Research performed on suboxone has consistently shown that it can be particularly helpful for people with addictions, as well as those who are HIV positive. Given that the substance only has a few side effects, it’s particularly helpful for people who are also on medication for their HIV problem.

To really get rid of your drug problem, you’re going to need assistance from professionals too. You need to get in touch with your nearest drug rehabilitation center for help, and they’ll give you the medication and the other psychological treatment that you require. They’ll never judge you, and they’ll do nothing but provide you with the services you require.

Are you wanting to take Suboxone to get off Heroin? If so, I believe that you need to be off of Heroin or any narcotic for 24 hours before taking Suboxone, or you could get sick. Once of the drug for 24 hours, Suboxone can take 1 or more hours to start helping you with any withdrawal symptoms. It worked for me within an hour.

It depends on a few things, how much suboxone you took and how long you have been taking it, suboxone builds up in your system because it has a half life, I am not 100% sure but it seems like for every 2mg's you take it blocks for about 12 hours. From experience I have waited 36-40 hours after taking about 12mg's ( I was prescribed 1 1/2 8mg tablets a day but had only been taking it for two days) and I still was unable to really feel the effects of the heroin after 36 hours, I felt a dulled initial rush but nothing at all compared to what I would of felt if I had never taken the suboxone. So what I am saying is it all depends on your personal body, but it seems that you definately need to do more heroin to feel anything (which isn't safe since even if you don't feel as high you can still OD) so after taking 12mg's of suboxone over 36 hours ago then doing enough heroin to put me usually on my ass I felt like I did maybe a quarter of the amount then I actually did, so basically it's a waste of time and obviously dangerous to do more to try to achieve that high. I would say to wait suboxone 72 hours to make it even worth it, and even then it still may not work especially if you have been taking suboxone regularly for any period of time, or taking a larger amount. It kind of seems that say you took an 8mg for every 2 mg it's 12 hours so that would mean you have to wait suboxone 48 hours for the heroin to be effective. Sorry about the suboxone but I wondered the same thing so unfortunately I got all different amounts of time that people said it would be out of my system needless to say I am $100 poorer...with no gratification:( hope I was some what helpful:)

Forty-Five minutes to an hour.  I just took a half and then a whole one about an hour ago and it is now working.  It has taken the sickness away, for the most part.  I still have massive cravings whole on it no matter what the dose, so don't believe all the hype that the pills completely take away cravings.  They don't.  Only about 3/4 at most.  Wish I had hycodan right now.
