My standard advice is to stay on Suboxone and be honest with everyone; they won't take a baby away for taking Suboxone, and the withdrawal will be very mild.

I say that because most people only relapse after stopping--including people who don't plan on relapsing.

If you must stop, you need to taper very slowly, by taking tiny amonts of Suboxone until you are off of it. If you are really at one mg, you are very close; you might try taking only a tiny particle twice per day when you really need it-- just a dusting-- and then after a few days of that, stop and wait it out.

Do NOT try using hydrocodone or another opioid to taper off Suboxone; that is nuts, and never works-- plus it exposes the baby to shorter-acting opioids, which are less safe.

Stay well hydrated. If you sleep, lay on your side-- NOT flat on your back.

Take vitamins, and get some mild exercise each day-- take a walk now and then. DON'T SMOKE. And you'll be fine.
