hey i just started taking suboxone a moth ago. I was taking about 150-250 milligrams of oxycodone daily for the past 3 years.
my subox doc told me to take 2 8 mg pills eveyday to start out with and said to take 2 every 12 hours no matter what.i take an 8 mg at about 3pm everyday a few hours after i wake up. i find that i dont have any withdrawals at all only taking 8 mg a day but have been taking about 12 for the last couple days. Should i take my doctors advice and go up to 16mg even though its not nessesary or should i stay at 8mg daily? i would like to keep my tolerance as low as possible to avoid having to take more,and wish to stay on it for awhile and dont want to be on that high of a milligram..but i usually would obey my docs orders. dont really no what to do, any advice would be great.

It looks like you posted twice. I responded to your other one, which I think was worded just a little bit differently, so my response will be a little bit different as well. If you are fine at 8 or even 12, then you might not need to take 16. You can just start putting aside some extras in case of emergency.
