Hi and welcome....ahhh yes,the chase for the next pill,when were running low.It's exhausting physically and emotionally.@4 hours a day.Thinking do I have enough for the day/week etc.I hated that! And I am so glad to be free of those thoughts right now.

Suboxone had naltrexone in it and subutex does not. forgive me if I read your post and forgot something...did you say after 3 weeks of not using your drug of choice,it is then you went on suboxone? Your wd's from the other pills was probably over,so I am guessing you went on subs to maintain abstinence?

Regarding your dosage,he prescribed 24 mg a day and you are comfortable at 16 mg a day,that's a good thing!Speak to your doc.and see how low you can get your dose and still feel ok...sub is a very powerful drug and has a ceiling,I believe at 4 mg's,in other words...for "some" 4 mg's is just as effective as 24 mg's etc.But speak to your doc.! People on this forum are a wonderful guide as well.Best of luck!keep us posted
