... am craving something do any of you think i should ask my doctor to atleast take 4 mg in the afternoon?
Absolutely ask your doctor about this. The whole reason you're on Suboxone is to help you live as normal a life as you can. Craving is not living a normal life. I think you are on the right track about asking him to increase you to 12mgs a day. This is not a unreasonable request. Just explain to him/her truthfully how you are feeling and also don't forget to mention that it mentally is rough on you.Good luck... Dave
Yes. Talk to your doctor. You could also break the pill in half or fourths and take it twice a day or 4 times a day, either way you will get the same amount and hopefully a good result. This was recommended by my doctor and it worked for me. If it doesn't work for you ask for an increase in dose as it shouldn't be a problem. Hope this helps and good luck to you!
