I am taking 4 mg Suboxone daily. I had major dental work done

This answer was rated:

I am taking 4 mg Suboxone daily. I had major dental work done yesterday and the doctor prescribed 60 mg Oxycontin for pain. I live alone and was very out of it when I was leaving the office, I forgot what the doctor said. I am in terrible pain. I want to verify this dose of Oxy will help my pain. I know I have a tolerance because of the Suboxone. Is it ok to take in your opinion? I can call my doctor in the morning, but don't think I can wait to take a pain pill.
