Hi, Well i'm back for a few, Had m induction on June 14, took 2mg at 1st and seem to work GREAT with it, and took another 2 mgs in the evening was doing great Everything seem fine. . VERY VERY surprise that such a low dosage was working but GREAT being that paying out of pocket for scripts. Ok it seems that as long as i'm busy working at work (merchandiser) i'm ok with that dosage, but if i'm off work like on weekends or lets say today I crave more of the sub. Remember its only been a week that i have been on this med. Its like when i'm rushing or busy the low dosage works for me throughout the day, but if not working why is by brain/body wanted more????????
Just confusing to me, as to why this is happending?
Please any advice or exp. will HELP me, as this site is what got me here in the 1st place, all the postive things being said. and its the best thing that has happen to me in 10 years.

I don't think that what you're experiencing is all that unusual. When I was tapering off of Suboxone I often noticed that when I was busy and distracted I felt better and when I was bored or had down-time I felt my withdrawals more.

Boredom is a big trigger for using/relapse - it creates cravings. You are on a pretty low dose, especially for someone who's just been inducted, so I think it's pretty normal that when your mind is idle you are experiencing cravings. Maybe you're not craving your drug of choice, but you're craving all the same.

It is also pretty common for new sub patients to need to adjust their dose in the early stages of treatment until they find the dose that is optimal for them. And even people on higher doses experience cravings during treatment. Most of the time people will find that if they find some other way to deal with the cravings they will eventually subside, but sometimes they just need a higher dose.

I'd say talk to your doctor about this. Maybe you need a bit more until you're feeling more stable, or maybe you'll be able to hang in there until you adjust to the low dose. You need to make that decision with your doctor.
