Ok... I finally did it! After much research and weighing options I went with bup as a means of getting of the pills. I have been on bup for about for months starting at 14mg a day down to 6mg a day now. I am finding that I still have strong cravings for the warm and fuzzies when I try to go down to 4mg after the first day. I am looking for as many different titration schedules people have found successful for them. My goal is to be off the bup within 9 months, however I am willing to stay on as long as it takes. Any and all ideas are welcome. Thank you very much in advance
Be careful, these are not good for long-term use. This comes from a user who has used them since 2009. They ruin your digestive system. I can't go to the bathroom for 1 or two weeks at a time. They put your intestines to sleep with long term use. I would get off them as quickly as possible. I have been weaning myself off for 6 months and today I am making the jump off of them. Your goal should be to be off them in 30 days or less if possible. Otherwise, if you take them for 9 months , it will take you a long time to get off them unless you can deal with the pain of jumping off without weaning yourself off slowly. It took me 3 months to go from 4mg to 1 mg a day. The withdrawals are manageable, but I have the luxury of being at home. I don't have to work. I have severe leg cramps, headaches, still can't go to the bathroom, so it hasn't gotten better by lowering my dosage. I hope you'll take my advice and get off them sooner than 9 months. The longer your own them the harder it is to get off them. I have gotten off methadone, morphine, hydrocodone and nothing is as hard to get off as these.
