    Default neeed help with ? about how long before one can st

    I need help with a ? about how long I need to wait untill I can start sub without trowing myslf in w/ds. I was on sub for about 4 years when it first came out, came off, and was in a auto acct. in Aug. 2008 and broke my back, neck, 2ribs, my hand,ankle and my shoulder blade,just to mention a few. I have been on Oxycodone 5 mgs, and Oxycontin 80 mgs since the wreck. I havent been on the oxycontin for over a week now, just takin oxycodone short acting 5mgs, but taking a lot of it. I take 10 to 12 pills at a time. I have an appt. with a sub doctor March 5, but I have about 10 to 15 8mg sub tablets I can use before myy appt. My ? is how long before my last oxy can I start the sub and be ok? I just can remember how long you are suppose to wait, any help would be great!

    It's not really a clock thing. You need to be in medium to moderate WDs B4 inducting. Best to use the COWS scale.
