I am wondering if you can help me I want to know the facts about going from methadone to subutex ... does the subutex take the methadone out your system alot quicker or is this a myth?
That's a myth. Use the sub by tappering using a tapper plan. Robert 325 has a good one on this site.
You have to tapper down to at least 30mg of methadone before making the switch and be off methadone at least 72 hours before taking the sub. Its a process that's for sure but well worth it!
no, the subutex only makes the withdrawals easier.Have you been detoxing off the methadone(coming down on your dose)? Good luck, at least you have the sub. to detox with. And I suggest you don't stay on that to long either. It's just another addiction. I detoxed off methadone without and other drugs to use. It was a nightmare.
