I have been in iop was started on 2mgs of suboxone half in the morning and half in the afternoon. dr wants to start a taper.i have only been on the subs for 2 weeks, he said for me to start taking the same as i was taking on the odd days and then cut down to half on the even days ,do this for 10 days ,then cut down to 1 mg for 10 days, then half of 1mg for 10 days. has anyone done it this way , and will i have bad withdrawals from it after doing it this way,if i just stop after that. any info will be great,. i have never taken suboxone before so i am at a loss.
That's the typical kind of stupid advice too many sub drs give. They take an 8 hour course to be certified and then the drug company salespeople tell them how to prescribe the meds. What a joke. Of course it's coincidental that most of those salespeople have BS degrees. lol It's kind of fitting for the advice you received.
The following link is how I've successfully worked with LOTS of sub users from all around the world here on drugs.com and other places. You follow it to the letter and it will be a basically incident-free experience I promise. Hope this helps. God bless. :)
