I'm new here and here is what I need to know...

I read the diary about how "Diary of a Quitter" used liquid method to get off of Sub. Only thing is, my doctor just switched me from 8 mg. tab. to 2 mg tab (so he could see me more often) so I can't liquefy an 8 mg. tab...only a 2 mg. FYI: I've been taking 1.5 to 2 mg. daily for a long time (1.5 years) but used 8 mg tabs and cut them down because it cost less. Now I have insurance so it's not that big of an issue as my out of pocket is only $30 which isn't too bad.

How would I do this liquid method...EXACTLY? I'm a writer and VERY right brain so I need an exact schedule/plan to follow or my brain simply won't absorb the info.

Ideally, I wanted to go to some sort of detox place (that my health insurance would cover) where I could get daily support and any meds that would help the withdrawal process. I'm very frightened to do this by myself. I live alone (besides my cat and my dog.)

Tried 3 times before to get off this Sub (from 2 mg) and it was HELL! Thought I was going to die, and, in fact felt suicidal. It really scared me! I know Sub is a miracle drug when used as a bridge to help people get off of other opiates, but not if one stays in on it for 2 years as I have.

So, if anyone (I did PM "Diary of a Quitter" as well) could give me an exact taper plan from 2 mg, plus any meds suggestions that my doctor can prescribe to help with withdrawal symptoms (even mild ones) like Clonodine, Xanax or whatever that would be much appreciated.

Like I said, I get easily confused unless I have a Day One, do this, Day 2 do this... kind of thing. Plus, I will have to buy a special dropper and ask a pharmacist to help me? Will this actually work?
