I am 36 years old and have been using off and on for 20 years, but heavily for the last year and a half after some plastic surgery in 2008. I was up to 40+ Norco daily, sometimes Soma, Zanax and Methodone. I am on the verge of losing everything. My husband has had enough. He took a week off of work last September to help me through "cold turkey." On day 9, he went back to work and I went straight to the Dr. - big surprise! I finally convinced him that I could not do this on my own, and we researched Suboxone. I really think I have found my answer. I feel amazing right now. I was inducted at 12 mg, and the Dr. told me that if I needed it, I could take 2 mg this evening. Then tomorrow I am to split the 12 mg into 3 4 mg doses. I took the extra 2 mg tonight - then got mad at myself because I DIDN'T really need it. I guess the addicts habits die hard!!! Is it okay that I took that extra 2 mg dose really??? And I've heard that dosing Suboxone at 3 x daily is unnecessary??? Any feedback???
