I have never abused Hydrocodone, but I have been taking a prescribed amount of about 30mgs of hydrocodone for about 4 years for a chronic back problem. 5 weeks ago I decided I wanted to get away from the pain killers all together. I went to my doctor and he agreed to provide me with suboxone. I was able to quickly wean down to about .25 mgs of suboxone in the evening. However, If I attempt to do away with it I go through terrible RLS as soon as midnight rolls around, with or without sleeping aids. It is very difficult to measure much less than .25 mgs. Does anyone know what the equivalent amount of hydrocodone be. I thought I might try just taking about 5mgs of Hydro at night and then start cutting it in half after 4 or 5 days until I can completely get off it. I would of course not take any suboxone going forward. Given the half life of suboxone, I am finding it difficult to make the final leep without a lot of discomfort for God only knows how long. I feel great otherwise. Does anyone know if this will work and most importantly the equivalent amount. Is there any kind of chart?? Thanks. Good luck to all of you. Baked Beans.
