i am currently using 4 mg suboxone to ease my withdrawals from 80 mg a day oxy habit of many years. i have only used 4 mg suboxone film a day for 4 days and plan on just one more day of that and no more. pretty much to help me get over the acute withdrawals i would've gone through stopping the oxy's. will i suffer withdrawals from the suboxone seeing as i will have only used it 5 days total? please any crediable advice is welcome as I am doing this on my own
I don't think you will have any problems getting off the suboxone as long as you use the least amount that helps you and don't use it too long. I would say 1 month at the longest. I wouldn't use it for long term maintenance because I feel it's just substituting one opiate for another and then you'll have to go through the withdrawals from the suboxone. I was on it for 8 months and was able to ween off of it but then I went back to it and now I'm having a lot of trouble trying to get off of it, so please be careful! Best wishes. Laura
