I have been taking 6mgs Suboxone for about 16 days now to get off a 20-25 pill a day Norco addiction that I have been on for 22 months and has been pure hell. I want to stop taking the Suboxone, asap. I am not a tapering kind of person, I just want it gone, but will do anything I can to get off of it., It saved me but I'm very afraid of becoming totally addicted to it. Is it already too late? I want to become drug free and get this stuff out of my life. Today I already dropped to 5 1/4 mgs, but as I take it in the morning, by evening I feel anxiety and depressed and worthless. How can I get off the Suboxone as quickly as possible? Please, any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Jumping off cold at 6mg is a mistake regardless of what you want to do. It's got to be done right or you'll suffer. Read the following link I wrote and if you want my help let me know. But you need to follow the instructions or you'll suffer. You'll read that the proper taper is reducing your dose by 25% every four days depending on how you feel and it's usually a 6-8 week process. You've got to do this the right way or you'll just end up sick or relapsing. I have done this a long time with people all over the world. I know what I'm telling you is right. Here is the link. Let me know if you want to follow my plan and I'll stick through it with you. I can walk you right through it from right here. It's your call. Let me know, I just need a commitment that you'll go along with what I ask or we'll be wasting each other's time. I know what I'm doing with subs. Here is the link, hope it helps.
Remember we all "just want it gone" but we have to pay the price of doing it properly to be successful. God bless. : )

Hi Robert, Thank you for writing me, I feel fortunate. I read very carefully your email and I believe I understand. I would like to use your taper plan very much. My induction was very much like what you wrote about, I stabilized at about 6 mgs. I should have been a little more aggressive with my taper as I have been on the Suboxone for 17 days now and I am at around 5 1/2 mgs. Should I contact you when I'm at 4mgs, or should I just follow your taper plan of every 4 days going down 1/4 total dose? you have my commitment to follow your plan. I'm 53 and have a wife, a 7 year old daughter and a 13 year old son and I want to be back with them as a whole, 100% dad. I will go back to NA meetings gladly and have my parents and family's support also. If you could walk me through this somehow I would be extremely grateful, sincerely. God bless
