I posted yesterday that 30mg methadone = 0.8mg Sub. It is 30mg methadone = 8.0 mg. Double checked with my Sub dr as well.

That would actually make more sense. I sort of thought the 0.8 looked low but it didn't click with me. Thinking about it more now, it makes total sense that 30mg of methadone roughly equals 8 mg of Bup because the experts often suggest getting down to about 30 (some say 40) milligrams of methadone before moving to Suboxone. Due to the ceiling effect, this all makes sense since for most people taking 50 mg of Sub does nothing more than taking 8 mg. It may last longer, but the effect is the same. So when you get down to 30 mg of methadone, you are then able to cross over to 8 mg of Sub - which is about as much as Sub can do for you.

Thanks for the correction.

A while back Dr. Junig posted the thread below about drug conversions. It relates directly to this topic.
