    Default how long+suboxone

    How much suboxone should i start on (5 yrs on opiates)? Each dr. suggests different amounts and for how long. Also, how long do I have to be on it to bypass withdraws, wich is my main concern, and do I have to wean myself off? Any helpful info. would help so much~Thanks!

    LESS IS BEST!!!!!
    It seem most on this forum could start at about 12 mg per day. I suggest to start with take 4 mg, wait one hour, still in wd, take 4 more... wait one hour. still in wd take 2 mg.. repeat this up too 12 mg if ness, this should do it.... DO NOT TAKE MORE THEN 16 mg, no need apparently.

    Remember, you must be in wd before first dose. I thought I was but not enough...
    Methadone, wait three days
    Oxycontins, ms contin or any other long acting pain killer, wait at the least 24 to 36 hours. some say even three days but I think this is pushing it.
    Percocets, vic, herion and other short actings 24 hours will prob do well.

    Good luck this is a great drug. I am on my weaning process and its not bad at all. I went to a quack and he put me on 40 mg WHAT a mistake.. I was manic.. didnt sleep, sweated more then I could drink. And I didnt wait long enough in wd for my first dose and I went right into Immed WD full WD, took two days before I could get out of bed... so be sure your in wd. Others experience when doing it right.... felt normal after one or two hour.

    Good luck
