So I have been on suboxone for quite a while now and have always been curious about one thing. Also I apologize if this has been answered in previous post but ya theres a lot of them. Anyways, when I cut my 8mg strip into quarters or halfs how do I know if both halfs have 4 mg each? Is i possible that it might be 5mg 3mg? You know? How does RB spread it out over the whole strip exact? It's always just been a curiosity of mine and would really appreciate any info you nice folks can provide. Thanks!

What I do is fold the film in half, fold it the other way and press the fold, then tear slowly. Comes out to a perfect half and you can do it again for a quarter piece. When I put them side by side it looks exact.

Why don't you ask your Dr. for the 2mg films to make it easier? Or even one box of each?

Actually switching to the 2mg strips prob wouldn't be a bad idea...I guess my question isn't so much about how to equally cut them in half but if I have 2 exact halfs after cutting one how do I know that there is equal bup in each half? I mean how are they made? I picture spreading jam on toast haha ( more jam on one side than the other). Any insight would be much appreciated. Also anyone else wonder about this as well?

SP,

I have had the same issue. I am tapering and get terrible headaches if the dose is off. I searched the forum and didn't find anything, so I started messing around with a Excel spreadsheet that marks the film into eights exactly. It really is very accurate and I would post it for others, but I don't know how to attach it or upload to the forum. If anybody wants a copy they can send me a PM and I will forward. Perhaps a moderator or admin. can set it out there for the forum users. I realize that not everyone has excel and tried to save as a PDF and also text files. Unfortunately, they don't save at the same size. It can be tweaked when printing though.
