Im new to this site. Long story short i was hooked on roxys for the past 4 yrs. Started subs in april. im currently on 10 mg with hardly no cravings. I was just wondering whats the average dose people are on? My dr talks about tapering my more. However I feel like i need to say on 10mg. Any suggestions?

Hi James and a hearty WELCOME to you! Glad you found us and decided to join us and participate.

I've been on sub since Dec of 2008. I'm on about 12-16 mg, however, I dose for pain, so my numbers aren't all that relevant for the purposes of what you're asking.

I can tell you that 10 mg isn't really low and isn't all that high, either. Dosage is very individualized when it comes to quashing one's cravings. Do you have any idea why your doctor is pushing you to a lower dosage? Does he want you to taper off or just maintain on a lower dose? I can tell you this, you should be able to go to 8 mg without any w/d problems. The issue would be whether or not it addresses all of your cravings.

I hope you and your doctor can get on the same page with your dose. Again, welcome to the forum.

Thanks for replying. Its good to have people to talk to that are going through the same thing. I think he wants me to maintain on a lower dose. but i feel like 10mg is right for me. I am going to see dr on wed. and i am going to discuss it with him.
