Depending on how much Suboxone you are taking a day, cut your dose in half every couple of weeks until you are down to 1/2 mg. If you are taking more than 2 mgs a day, decrease by 2 mgs every couple of weeks until you are down to 2mgs and then proceed as mentioned above. If you do this slowly, you can beat this and not have to suffer terribly.
I have been on pain medication for 5 years now and im really thinking about getting on the subs cause I can't take this SH*T anymore the pain meds don't even help with the pain anymore but I can't just stop taking them because of the Withdrawals from the pain meds I really don't know what to do :(
Hello everyone, First I want to say I feel for each of you. This battle we are all in is not fun. I like the idea of having support. Definitely get a support group. I have been trying to get off this stuff for a year and a half now and failed twice miserably. I am back down to one mg and am determined to beat it this time. It seems that one mg isn't much but this stuff will hang on to you like a Grizzly Bear. I plan on taking 1/4 twice a day now for the next 2-3 weeks. God willing I will make it that long. Then I will go to once a day then every other day. Wish me luck. Patience and perseverance seems to be the only way.
