You need to make sure you score a 26 or higher on the COWS (clinical opioid w/d scale) worksheet. Here is the link. If you score less than a 26 and begin the sub induction you'll end up in precipitated w/d. I'm also including a link for how I suggest you use subs including the taper off. Good luck. Let me know if you want my help. I do this every day.
Yes.On the first day take 2 and 1/2 pills.On the 2nd day take 1 and 1/2 pills.The third day take 1 pill,the 4th 1/2 a pill then on the 5th day take the last 1/2 of a pill then you should be fine after that.You may be a little edgey so a low dose of a benzo for a few days will take the edge off. I have done this myself.I'm speaking from experience.
