## Anyone Out There????

I really didn't want to start a new thread but I didnt know what else to do . If anyone who's reading this and have read my other thread they'd realize I suck in math!!!! I need help from anyone, please. I did my 4th day at 3mg. subs yesterday I'm suppose to drop 25 today as per Robert wonderful plan. Now would that have at 2.75 or 2.25. I was suppose to take whichever dose it was at 8:00 this morning. It is now 10:55. I did take 2.25 to be on the safe side. Could someone please let me know if i did the right thing. Thanks in advance for any suggestions and help. It's deeply appreciated. I'm sorry I took half of 2.25 this morning.

Chrissy.

Yep. 2.25mgs is correct. Anytime you want to drop, take your current dose and multiply by 0.75 to get your new dose (ie 3x0.75=2.25 and then 2.25x0.75=1.6875 so round up to 1.75)

Chrissy,

I'll make it real easy for you right now! From each dose you will reduce by 25% and get the following amounts......

1.125mg (-25%) = 1mg
1.0mg (-25%) = .75mg
.75mg (-25%) = .60mg
.60mg (-25%) = .45mg
.45mg (-25%) = .33mg
.33mg (-25%) = .25mg
.25mg (-25%) = .18mg

I rounded off a couple of the numbers as you're allowed to do! Now you have it all the way until you begin the day skipping process! Hope this helps you!

I told you on my thread that I would be happy to help you all the way as you taper from now on. You said you would like my help and I would be honored to do so girl! So just relax a bit ok. If you need help with cutting up the film to get the right dose just let me know. Always happy to help a friend!

Big Hugs,
Karen

No problem girl! When you get UNDER 1mg you take it ONCE per day only. So you will begin with the .75mg taking it one time per day!

Lotsa Love,

Yes that help. And I should have worded it different I meant did you spilt the 75 once in the morning and once in the evening? If you just took it all at once what time of the day did you dose? I fuss I could take 50 in the morning and 25 in the evening. Thanks again.

My taper seems to have gone horribly wrong. I went down to. 75 yesterday that I usually take about 6:16 a.m I was fine all day but around 2:00a.m. I woke up with a horrible stomach pain and that choking feeling. I haven't felt that kind of pain in 9 years. I tossed and turned and tossed and turn until I couldn't take it anymore!!! Around 5:00 I took my dose of .75 and its now 7:45 and my body still hasn't adjusted. I'm seriously thinking of starting all over at 1 mg does anyone have any input? Thanks in advance

2mg. But I only have 20 8mg. subs left and I don't want to go back to the Dr.s again. I'm upset and hurting…, I.didn't feel.this way coming of methadone. I feel ready to take something now just to feel normal again maybe just a 25mg. piece. Does anyeone have any suggestions should I start over at

My taper isn't going well at all I went down to .75 Mg yesterday around 6:15 a.m. and I was fine all day until I went.to sleep and awoke at 2:40 this morning with the most horrible stomach pain and choking feeling I haven't felt since 9 years ago. I fought the pain until I couldn't take any longer and took my dose of .75 at 5:15 and it'd now 8:10 and I still don't feel well. I'm seriously thinking of starting over at 1 Mg. but I only have 20 8mg. subs left and I don't want to go back to the Drs.
I want to try to take a .25 mg piece of sub now just to feel right but not sure if I should but I don't like to feellike this. If anyone has a suggestion I would appreciate it. Has anyone felt this kind of pain while tapering? Maybe I shouldn't touch the subs with my hands I don't know but what I do know is something isn't right. Thanks in advance for any advice

Hi Chrissy,

I was going to take today off, but can't sit by and watch you struggle. I'm not entirely certain of what you really should do either, but maybe my "helper" from yesterday can come on here and give us the help that is needed. I will be praying for that to happen.

The only thing that I might suggest is that it seems your dose isn't lasting you long enough. But DO NOT take a larger amount. That is not the way to go. Maybe taking that .25mg sliver will make a difference, but I'm NOT saying for you to do that.

From my own experience I took my single dose at noon and it lasted all day and night for me. Maybe it would for you too??? Not really sure as everyone is different. But hopefully Cheeky, Reid, or my "helper" can come on and help you out, or tell me how to help you?

Best I can do right now girl. Try to lay down and relax as best you can ok. Hopefully it will get better on it's on. Now there is the chance that you could actually be sick you know? Again not sure? Hang in there Chrissy and hopefully help is on the way. Thinking of you all day today sweetie.

Big Hugs,
Karen

Chrissy......
You might think no one pays attention, but I know that I read most everything, so do many others. If I don't know the answer I usually keep my mouth shut......just don't think you are alone.

I started at .75 yesterday and I took it all at once at 6:15 a.m before that I was splitting my doses in the morning and in the afternoon. I was thinking maybe that's the problem. But I'm thinking back and I'm looking at the piece I cut., some are looking way bigger than the others so I really hats to say this but I think when I was at 1.125 I was taking more than I was suppose to and that jump down to 75 was to much of a jump. Wow I finally said it but please don't judge me because I have been following to taper plan as best I could and I don't want to blame it on work because I should have been paying way more attention to what I was taking but when I went back to work I got distracted and I was also taking my doses at fifteenth times due to the hours I was working. And appears that I was taking fifteenth pieces that I shouldn't have kinda to keep me going but not more than twice a day. I hope this is not confusing to you. Do you think I should start over or just stay where I'm at and I did take another sliver before I read your post but it was only .25 if that makes a difference

ok.... just spoke with Rober..........................Melinda. Go ahead and take .25 right now... See if that amount gets you stable... If so stay at that adjusted dose for 4 days and then start the reduction at that point... We don't want you feeling bad...

No judging here... you know that. if you were at 1.125 and dropped to .75 thast is more than %25, and if your doses were a little off that could have turned into much more than the %25 and the switching to once a day on to that.

I am going to go back through right now and read your posts on both threads and take a look.

P.S. -- Don't stress about having to go back to the doctor ever again if you have 20-8mg films left. that is more than enough for you to do this no matter what.

So.....How are you feeling now??

Do you feel better after you take that .25mg.

And you mentioned handling the films. That should not be a problem if your hands are dry and not swetty.

Thanks Mike I know you guys don't judge yous just call it like it is. I thought I put lil behind that sorry. I am feeling a little better than what I was since taking the. 25 sliver. Oh boy I'm making this taper way harder than it should be. If I shouldn't have went down to. 75 than where do suggest I should have went and thanks for posting.

How long ago did you take that .25, and would you say you feel stable?

If it makes you feel better, I did the same thing during my taper and dropped to much once....just once.

Mike,

I gave Chrissy the "dosing" schedule in post #5 here on this thread. She was at a 1mg dose and recently reduced to .75mg. Just a FYI for you is all!.

Hugs,
Karen
