Hello, I'm about to start subutex and only have the 8mg pills and they are tiny! I'm wondering if it's possible to crush these into a powder and use my gun powder scale to measure them out into way smaller doses. Is it still OK to dissolve powder under the tongue?

Being new and all with this I suggest you follow your doctors instruction for induction and daily dose. If it feels like it's too much then cut the pill in half with a pill cutter. That'll give you 4 mg's which isn't all that much. I do not suggest crushing them. That is addict behavior even though your intentions are good.

I've been told with my oxy tolerance that I shouldn't need more than 2-4 mg a day. There is no way I'm following the docs 16mg a day, I think that would be extremely difficult to taper off and take forever. I appreciate your response though, wish me luck!

Also, I think your right about crushing the pills and the addiction behaviors. I may try cutting them down or doing the water dissolve method if I can't figure something else out. Thanks again!
