I am looking for anyone who has used suboxone for a year or more (because thats how long my treatment will last) and has successfully completed it. It doesn't matter to me if you relapsed afterwards, i just want to hear from anyone who has been on a "regular dose" 8-16mg a day and has successfully gotten off the suboxone and how it was for them. I am just really nervous about getting off the suboxone; I have heard so many horror stories, i would just like to hear a good one. Thanks for your time.

Well I was on suboxone for 8 months and was supposed to be on them longer but I voluntarily stopped them so I could have surgery. They wouldn't do the surgery if sub. was in my system. I stopped 4 days before. I was taking 8mg in morn but some times 16. But I can honestly say that except for GI upset I was fine. That is just me others may be different.
