Yes, however it won't do much good so pay attention to the following caveats:

1) If you take the suboxone BEFORE the oxy, then you won't get much, if anything out of the oxy since the suboxone is already hanging on to the receptor in your brain. Buprenorphine, the active ingredient in suboxone, is VERY competitive for the receptor. That being said...

2) If you take the suboxone less than 24 hours AFTER the oxy, prepare yourself for HELL. I have done this accidentally and it causes precipitate withdrawals. What happens is that the Suboxone knocks t Oxy he off your receptor very quickly, causing you to go into some nasty withdrawals. If you have done this by accident, however, don't worry too much. You'll suffer vomiting for about 30 minutes and then about a day's worth of sweating, but you should be ok. Check with your prescriber.
Suboxone has a pain blocker in it so it would not do you ant good to take the oxycodone with it, not only would you not feel it but it could possibly send you into withdrawals.

Yes you can but it is pointless. Suboxone is meant to block opiate receptors in the brain so that you don't feel opiate withdrawls(EX. oxycodone;heroin). If you are on suboxone taking oxycodone would just be like taking a placebo. I have done it before...

How long to take oxycodone after suboxone?

It depends on how much Suboxone is in your system, but a rule of thumb is to generally wait at least 48 hours, if not more, before taking Oxycodone. If you can wait a week or more, do so. You definitely want all the Suboxone to be out of your system so the Oxycodone has a chance to bind to your receptors.

I need To take oxycodone for a tooth problem how long do you need to be off suboxone for the oxycodone to work?

the half life of suboxone is 36 hours. So 72 hours would eliminate the suboxone from you entirely. But depending on your dose you could have oxycodone work sooner. Example if your mu receptors are not filled (2mg suboxone or below). But all in all you will have to wait a full two days before the oxycodone will work to your satisfaction, to my expierence.

Will suboxone show up in a Urine Drug Screen looking for oxycodone?

No, Suboxone is a synthetic opiod drug and does not produce the same metabolites that oxycodone does. A standard drug screen for opiates will come up positive after oxycodone use, it will not after Suboxone use. Suboxone needs to be specifically tested for.

Can you take oxy after suboxone?

You should NEVER take oxycodone (oxy) after suboxone. These two drugs are both opioid analgesics which when taking together could cause respiratory depression and death. Taking any combination of opiate derived substances together increases the chance that you will become unable to breath, in addition to the risk of aspirating vomit if you were to throw up. This happens quite frequently in heroin overdose. Suboxone and oxycodone are both derived from the same chemical as heroine, and carry the same risks for overdose.

If you are allowed to take oxycodone if you take a Suboxone in a drug test will you be fine?

I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you asking whether you will test positive for opiates, if you switch from oxycodone to Suboxone before the test? If so, then: Suboxone will not show up on a drug test, no. But, if a doctor is prescribing oxycodone for you, then you aren't doing anything illegal. So why would you care if you test positive for opiates? No company has the legal right to fire you for taking opiate drugs, if you have a legal prescription for them.Or, are you saying that you have a prescription for oxycodone, but you also take Suboxone recreationally, and you are wondering whether you will test positive for both drugs? If so, then again, no: Suboxone will not show up on a drug test.
