i feel like im going to be on subs forever,but dont want to be.everyone tells me just go though it but its so hard need some advice please.
Whether or not you even have withdrawal will depend on how you taper off of it. Please hit comment and let us know how high a dose you are on and whether or not you are tapering off. If you cold turkey from subxone, especially at a high dose, was could last for weeks to months.
Well, if your trying to get off sobos, taper as much as you can over the course of a few months. I was on sobos for a few years and am glad to report that ive been off them now for three months with no relasps. First off, you need to be taking them the most effective way, which means taking less. When you put your sob under your toung, dont swallow any of the saliva that builds up on your mouth. From the time you put it in your mouth, hold your saliva for an hour. And yes i know its uncomfortable and awkward but the longer you hold it, the more of it gets in your system. When i learned this i was taking a whole one. After learning this it only took an eighth to keep me good for the day. Its alot easier to get of sobs if your taking less. After an hour of holding your spit, swallow it. The buprenorphine enters your system through your saliva gland. The naloxone enters your body through your intestines. So swallow the spit cause you want the nalox. This helps cutting your dose alot. When your only taking an 16th a day for about a month, your almowt ready to get off. The last partvis the hardest. Im sry to say but your gonna be somewhat sick when you quite for good. Try to get prescribed a sleeping pill for a week or two to help. Also what i learned is to be around some one you love and loves you. Being around a friend or partner having a conversation helps alot. Joking around and laughing which may be hard helps too. One last thing that helps quitting sobs is having sex. Yes it helps. If your getting hot/cold flashes try sleeping with some one next to you. Having a warm body to hold on helps also. I hope your successful on your quest of stopping the soboxone. If you need some one to talk to feel free to write to write me at 80milliseconds@gmail. Im always avalable. Hope this helps. Good luck and remember, it does get better. Dillen
