... mg and by the end of the week 2 mg. when i got home i relapsed so my dr has put me back on suboxone. i take 4 mg a day, and only want to stay on for a couple months. has anyone tried getting off of them after a short pd, and how is the withdrawl??
If you join the suboxone group here and read the post it will really help. I have read as many as i can find and apparently it is best if you try to taper the dose down to .25 milligrams before you come off and go as long between doses of suboxone as you can while you are tapering the dose. The post here say you can reduce the dose every 4 days by 25%. My personal counselor said to stay on the lowered dose for 1 month at least. It has a long half life and some people go a couple of days between doses. The main thing is to keep you comfortable and to keep you from relapsing. Excercise helps while tapering and getting off the suboxone. I read that over and over.
