    Default Suboxone Help, Please!!!!

    Hello!
    I have been taking Suboxone for a month now. I was using Percocets (120-180mg/day) for about 3 months after being taken off my prescribed pain meds of Vicodin and Tramadol for fibromyalgia. The first day I began Suboxone I went into immediate PW, it was horrible! But I stabilized, and have been comfortable at 2-3mg of Suboxone per day for the past 3 weeks.
    I would like some information on tapering Suboxone, how do I get off of it without withdrawal, I have seen some posts from Robert_325 on this...I would like his advice, or anyones advice on this. I can provide more information as needed.
    My major question tonight is that I relasped and took 30mg of Percocet around 8:30 PM tonight. I did take a 4mg dose of Suboxone around 12:30 PM today. I am wondering if I can just take my usual dose tomorrow morning, since the Suboxone should have "blocked" the Percocet? Or do I need to go into withdrawal again to avoid precipitated withdrawal tomorrow? I have to work tomorrow and obviously do not want to do anything that would make me horribly sick. Please any advice would be very appreciated on both subjects. I am really trying to do this the right way, and I need some support! Thank you in advance to anyone who responds.

    Sorry I did not see this in time. I hope you just took your dose as you do not need to be in w/d again. I will give you the link for Robert's taper process that should work fine for you. It is to taper by 25% every four days and then start a skipping days process when you get down to .25mg. or lower. This method has worked for literally thousands of people. Good luck and let us know how you are doing.
