Thank you for your reply.
There are two approaches about this. One is to discontinue the medication before at least 2 weeks. However this may lead to withdrawal symptoms and therefore many patients find it difficult to completely stop the medication.
The other approach is to reduce the dosage of the medication and continue the reduced dosage even in the postoperative period. So in these patients who are continuing suboxone in postoperative period, for pain relief opioid medications need to be prescribed in sufficient dosage to relieve the pain.
Therefore since the surgery is less than a month away you need to discuss regarding your options with your doctor/surgeon.
