I tend to scare myself reading the nightmares of others getting off suboxone. I was on the program for two months and the doctor wrote me a taper schedule to get off, however since the begining I have never needed the 20 mg he wrote for a full day. I had tapered myself down to 1 mg and last friday took my last dose by my choice. I am 6 days into this and have felt mild if no symptoms. Was I lucky to get out of this easy or is there worst things to be expected? I plan to go to some support meetings and have many supporative people willing to attend with me. Anyways I would like to hear others thoughts on if this is normal to not feel like I was expecting to feel and is 6 days too soon to tell still?
If you are on day 6 and are fine, I am pretty sure you are going to stay that way. The wd usually sets in between 3 and 5 days after the last dose. I tapered off and had no withdrawal either, but I was on it for a year and a half before I started my taper. If you would, please put this info in your profile story, there are not alot of nice stories about getting off of it, and those who read these posts need to know it does not have to be a terrible nightmare. The people who are fine also don't write here and tell their story, yours would be a good example of successful treatment on subs. Good Show, and congrats, Pattishan
