What do I need to do to prepare myself... she is mentally head strong she wants to stop I just need some advice to help myself help her thru this... thanks in advance.
Depending on what dose your friend is taking, stopping Suboxone cold turkey is going to be similar to stopping any opiate. She is going to experience pain, cramping, restlessness, anxiety, insomnia to name a few of the withdrawal symptoms. It is really best to taper off this medication which means she can avoid most if not all of the withdrawals. Would be happy to help with a taper plan.
