... I need more,not, because I'm coming down, but, because my withdrawals are starting to raise their ugly heads. As posted, I'm coming off 22 years of methadone and I don't believe I was ever stabalized on sub. Presently, if I don't take at least 6mgs a day I go into withdrawals. I'm only supposed to be taking 1mg a day, which at this point is impossible
If you have been taking methadone for 22 years and have just recently started Suboxone then 1mg is not enough. Generally, a single dose of Suboxone should last at least 24 hours. You may need to be on even a higher dose than 6 mgs if you are feeling withdrawals after 4 to 5 hours. Best to discuss with your doctor.
