I have read a lot of threads on this and i think i know what to do. My issue is I only want to use suboxone short term like 4mg a day for 8 days then stop. I have been taking no more than 15mg a day of methadone for the past year. Right now I am tryin to get down to 5 mg before i run out of what i have bought off street. because i have always taken such a low dose, do i still need to wait 3 days to take suboxone. Guess i was hopin to use suboxone to avoid wd at all since i have job and 2 kids. Can someone please let me know best way to do this. 2 8mg suboxone are all i was able to get.
I just saw this post and it is probably too late but subs will only delay ur WDs that way. u don't have enough to do anythimg other than 2 delay them for about 4 days after ur last dose of subs. find out if ur state county or city will pay 4 the doctor or med. by calling around to the drs in ur area licensed to write an rx 4 subs. go to subs website and aget names and numbers 4 All drs n ur area a call them. good luck, sorry answer so late. or re-post and tell us what county and state u r in and maybe someone in subs group will know of local prgms. 4 u.
In theory 8 days and done sounds great but what's gonna happen in 2 weeks when someone offers u something are u gonna really be able to "just say no" ... I think the whole point of the methadone and the sub is to stay away from street drugs even if u have to take them long term, don't trick urself into that game...
