i always wait until i am feeling like crap and ive scored over a 26 on the cows scale and STILL go into precipitated. i usually start off with a small dose too, like 1 mg just to see if im ok and everytime i go into terrible withdrawals? what am i doing wrong? and also, after 12 hours it gets hard for me because i start to become in pain so i always take some xanax to help me wait a little longer, is that bad or can that be the cause of it. but today i waited 18 hours and was very sick, took 1 mg of suboxone and got into precipitated withdrawal so i had to use again. i just want to be clean :\ help anyone?
