Hey guys, just making my first post here and introducing myself. I have lurked around the boards for a little while, and find many posts are very helpful, with so many different people here, with different experiences and advise. Hopefully I can help some people out and also get advice. I have been on Bupe since June 2010. I never touched opiates until the beginning of 2009 but went pretty hardcore, pretty fast.

Pretty much I just got back on subutex today after jumping around 3 weeks ago officially. It was even out of my system at my doctors office and I felt pretty good, but then it got worse and never went away. Me and the doctor have came up with an unofficial taper plan from now until July I believe and I know there are some good ones on here, so I am looking forward to being a member here and getting to know you guys!

Later,

Hi deepsouth and welcome to the forum. We're glad you decided to stop lurking and join the party. I'm confident you'll find everyone here welcoming and supportive. And we try very hard to make this a place where people can come to get accurate information as well.

So you jumped off suboxone too soon, eh? Now you're back on it to do a proper taper? I think that's a really good plan. Doing a long, slow taper is the very best way to minimize withdrawals. There are even people who've tapered so low and so slow that they essentially walked off (instead of "jumping) and felt next to no withdrawals, so it can be done. Just taper really low - into the micrograms, before stopping altogether and allow yourself plenty of time to adjust to each dosage drop before dropping again. In other words, listen to your body. If you suffer too badly when you drop your dosage, then make smaller drops. So be flexible in your taper plan, too.

Again, welcome and good luck tapering off! We're glad to have you with us.
