I want to detox and I heard about Suboxin what would the dosing schedule be?
It depends on the person. They will usually start you out at a lower dose first. If you still feel like crap they will slowly increase it until you start feeling better. Remember you are in charge of your recovery and you need to talk to your doctor if you aren't taking a high enough dose. Remember that you won't get high off this medication so there's no point in trying to get the doctor to increase the dose because it really won't do much for you. You can only take so much of this drug as well because it has a ceiling effect which prevents higher doses from working. The maximum dose it usually 24mg to 32mg depending on the doctor. You will probably start out with shots and then go to sublingual tablets of Suboxone most likely a low dose like 2 to 4mg to start and then 8 to 16 is more moderate and most patients are on this dose. However a lower dose can be just as effective so talk to your doctor that prescribes it and let him or her know how you are doing. Hope this helps. Good luck to you!
