Hi there thanks for asking. You should wait for 48 to 72 hours to let the withdrawal symptoms to appear. Then you can start suboxone. Suboxone is a a medication which acts partially on its place. It has some good advantagets. However, you should be careful about how to begin it in order to avoid any withdrawal symptoms from any other medication in your blood.
During that window time that you are waiting to start this medication (suboxone) you can ask your doctor to give you a medication from the class of alpha 2 agonist ( i give the patients clonidine) to minimize the symptoms which are not desirable. Best of luck.
