Just wanted to give a shout out that I am on day 2 without subs and feeling okay. Taking detox meds prescribed from my addicionoligist which are helping. Clonidine, phenobarbital,robaxin,and neurontin. I hear days 4-6 are the worst. Any feedback on that?
I will keep you posted.

I've only had withdrawal form suboxone once, and that was a long time ago, after taking it for only a month. days 3-5 were the worst for me then. I've now been on it for 10 months and suspect the withdrawals would be much more severe if I were to stop, with the worst symptoms probably popping up a few days later than last time, considering how much bupe is built up in my system. So, yes, I think you could expect 4-6 to be the worst of it, then also seems to be the consensus from all the stories I've read online.

It's a good think you got yourself comfort meds, to me, it makes all the difference in the world. My doc has given me clonidine for my taper, but I haven't taken it yet, I'm saving it for when I jump (or if I *really* need it during my taper). I'm hoping I will be able to get him to prescribe a muscle relaxant when I do finally make the jump as those always seemed to do so much for when when I was in withdrawal from opiates.

Anyhow, best of luck to you. Please keep us posted on your progress and stay tough. See it through. One day at a time.

Hopefully someone with more experience can give you better insight.
