... methedone can u start taking suboxone? Will i have 2 wean myself down 2 almost nothing ? I'm on 80mgs of methedone a day. I'm hoping that i can get myself down 2 30mgs a day. Then just stop for 48hrs. That's the length of time that it takes 2 start going into withdrawel from methedone, r that's when i really start feeling bad. Hope somebody has a answer for me because i'm seriously thinking about doing this. After the 48hrs i hope i would b able 2 take a dose of suboxone. Dont want 2 go thru any withdrawels as i'm a diebetic and it throws my sugar levels all over the place
