Ive been on it for four years, and I can make a whole 4mil strip last two weeks. Though my doses are near none I still have the worst withdraw. Plz help, any remedies?
Dear Brittany, the strips come in 8 mg and 2 mg strength, are you saying you split and 8 mg strip into equal halves and take a small piece of that for 2 weeks or maybe did you get confused at the amount and are simply breaking an 8 down. I know you are scared and worried, I went thru that too. I was able to get off suboxone and read here some words by mpvt that rang true. He said to google the COWS sheet ( clinical opiate withdrawal scale) and take the test if you feel like you are in withdrawal, and usually you will see that you are not in withdrawal. If you have several points on most of the symotoms, it may be withdrawal, but usually there is only a couple of points on a couple of symptoms and when you test like that, you are only having mild symptoms that your mind is blowing out of proportion, He also said to start a walking or exercise regimen to reboot the pain relieving system in the brain, to release endorphins and to regulate the eat-sleep-wake cycles. There is clonidine and methacarbomal rx to treat insomnia, anxiety, rls, and tummy cramps. I didn't even have to use those. I did a .25 mg skip for 48 hours, at first I had anxiety at 30 hours, but I did the walking to help stabilize and after 3 1/2 weeks on the .25 skip, I was fine when I jumped off. I know the fear makes symptoms worse. Will you please update us and tell us how you feel sick, and take that COWS test, to see if you are really in full blown we, if you are, your brain hasn't healed enough, you are not quite ready to come off of it.
