At what amount can I stop? I decided to quit vicodin and opiods again. This is my 4-5th time around and I went to the Dr. to get Suboxone. He wanted me to come to his ofice 3 days per week and will only sell me pills each day (Total BS!) He told me that he wants me on it for 3-5 years! I have 3 pills, 8mg, (his one day supply) and want to kick by using just them. Obiously being a kickin vet, I know better then to get addicted to Subox. QUESTION: Is there a conversion to gauge what a suboxone is equal to? At what amount can I stop them and be likely safe from wd's? I was a 100mg vic per day user, he gave me a full 8 mg subox at his office yesturday. I only took 2mg this morning
you added a critical piece of info that we need, this is your 4th or 5th attempt at quitting the vice and were very wise to not take more than 2 mgs, but, with each relapse, it takes a bit longer to recover from the damage done to the neurotransmitters and receptor sites. It will take more than just the few subs you have, but not 3 to 5 years. This dr wants the money, and I wish I could give you a definitive time frame, I can't and neither can anyone else really. Usually 3 to 6 months of subs is the least amount of time to get on, heal and taper off without wd, patti
