... cravings and some paws. I took 1mg and cravings gone and feel fine. Has anyone come off it for awhile and used it in small doses as needed like once or twice a week for a slower taper or going thru paws. This is a very confusing drug and my doctor and therapis dont know but are willing to prescribe it this way still for maintence and just say my body uses it a couple a times a week but it seems like the medical community is not in the loop but I am forutnate enough I think that I have a good place that listens. Any input would be appreciated.Patti, Robert,MPVT,Subzero are u out there, your input would also be greatly appreciated. I am taking .5mg of klonopin upto three times a day for my aniety and will stay there, I was at 1mg up to 4 times a day but coming off of 2 addicted substances at once is tough. Any input on low dose suboxone therapy or biweekly therapy would be greatly appreciated.thanks love, peace,joy Rob
Since the suboxone stays in the system from 3 to 5 days, taking it twice a week will work. Then you can taper from there. Did you get addiction's counseling with your drug therapy? Might want to check out Narcotics Anonymous or hook up with an addiction's specialist so to learn coping skills for when the temptation strikes.
Best of luck and congratulations on getting off the opiates,
