I started with 2mg suboxone twice a day for 3 days and am now at 2 mg once a day for 2 days. i took it for withdrawls from 10/325 percocet taken 3 times a day. i want off as soon as possible. since the dose is small and being taken for such a short time how fast can i taper off?
Hi junior26, I think you can go cold turkey now. I went cold turkey off of prescribed Oxy, and I'm just fine now. If I can do it, so can you!!!
You may have restless legs and insomnia for a few days, but I doubt it.
You were not on a high dose of opiates... so it shouldn't be too bad.
Good luck to you, and keep us posted!!
I think sweetlemon is right. If you feel ok after a few more days without taking any, you should be good to go. Always happy to hear when someone gets off of opiates. I too have back issues but physically (and probably psychologically) depend on them. I hope someday I can get to where you and sweetlemon are now.
Keep up the good work and stay strong!!
hi junior,5 days off 10mg narco,u may still have w/d symptoms from the stuff your trying to kick. most pain meds take anywhere from 5-7 days to come out of your body.takin the sub for 7-9 days you will not get a habit.remember this,what are you gonna take for pain now that you stoped your pain meds ? if you really want to get off the opiates you gotta be able to deal with your pain in some new way.having a scrip for a refill will be talking to you in a week or two. saying come on just a couple of pills and you'll feel better. them dam pills have a mind of there own. they will lie to you then wait till you are week.
