I have been struggling with opiate addiction for the past 11 years and finally got the "go ahead" to start suboxone. I was on 120 mg. of morphine and went 24 hours off and drugs. I scored a 38 on the COWS and he started me at 4 Mg. waited 30 minutes with little results. He gave me another 4 mg. and i saw minimal results, then another 4 Mg. This helped me and relieved most of my symptoms. He sent me home with two 8 mg pills, on for tonight and one for the morning. i see the doctor to get my script tomorrow. The question I have for all you knowledgable souls is how long should i wait between doses? Should i take my second dose when i start feeling ?????? again or should i wait a certain amount of time. I also want to know if i am on too high a dose? is 16 mg too much suboxone? Thank you!
