Hello! I have been on sub. for almost a year, i am down to 4mg a day. I just lost my insurance and I had to pay for my DR visit. Well, I had to reschedual for later that day(20th) and they said they could not get me in untill the 13th of June! I dont know what they expect me to do, thats almost 3 weeks! I saved 1 4mg and took it yesterday and today i am starting to feel bad but i know with sub., you start feeling bad about 3 days without any. To think I still have 2 weeks freaks me out! If anyone has any advice for me I would very much appriciate it, ANYONE! I am very scared! THANX!
You are in a pickle, and I don't mean to make light of this situation. I wish I had a good answer for you. The Subs stays in the system for 3 to 5 days as you mentioned. But going cold turkey is going to be rough. Is there anyway you can contact the prescribing doctor? Are you in the US? Was just wondering since we are having a holiday weekend. You need to be prepared and I don't know what to tell you to do exactly. You can google the Thomas recipe and stock up on some over the counter remedies and if things get too bad please go to the ER. I don't mean to scare you, but just want you to prepare for the worst.
Please keep in touch,
