I am wondering if some are dealing with tapers that are complex for some reason. Any reason.

But one that I know is complex is taking two drugs at the same time that both should be tapered.

I did start a thread asking specifically about my benzo (Valium) at the same time as Bupe. The

consensus is that the Valium should be tapered to nothing before starting any taper on Bupe.

This makes sense since two tapers at the same time is complex. Yet, last year I was taking

8mg of Bupe and felt much better than the current 16mg. Due to the ceiling effect allowing quick tapers

I am anxious to start a Bupe taper back to 8mg in quick order. And may start in the middle of the

longer Valium taper which probably should not be fast.

But this is also an invitation to hear from anyone who has a complex taper of any kind, and found, or is

looking for ways to deal with it. Complexity is surly out there?

Thanks for the link to the Ashton manual- the best information on benzos out there, based in the U.K.

I have read it, but I do not remember any tapers dealing with two drugs together - they seemed to be concentrating on the various types of benzos, and getting all switched over to Valium for a final taper. I will have another look at it.

It would be nice if there were a similar manual for Suboxone, maybe there is?

Thanks for the link,

S
