    Default What exactly do I need to request from pain Dr.

    I got an RX for butrans patch but not interested. Want to instead get script for suboxone strips? Im so lost? Should I ask for 1mg strip or 2 or 4mg?

    If you want suboxone get the 8MG strips. Only certain Drs can prescribe teh sub and most over prescribe, so be careful. Depending on your usage you likely wont need to much - It's a very strong drug. Look for Robert_325's sticky to get details on how to properly taper and how much you should start with. Make sure you have all the other stuff out of your system before you take any. Look up where you are on the COWS worksheet.

    Good luck. Post back for more info/help.

    Here is the link to the sub therapy process. Pay close attention to the INDUCTION section where you can find a link to the COWS (clinical opioid w/d scale) worksheet. Let me know if I can help. God bless.
