YESTERDAY i WENT down to 4 mgs sub daily...no wds,no crazy legs...today (day8) went down to 2mgs (1/4 pill)that was @ 7 hrs ago...still feel just dandy. I do think I will stay at 2 mgs till day 11 tho. Of course I may still crash and burn and if that happens then I will deal with it. Questions:
Has anyone else on here tapered this fast?
Should I transfer this post to the "quitting subs" area of this forum?

Thanks good people!

I only have a few seconds so sorry if someone already has pointed this out, but dose reductions often take a day or two - sometimes as much as three or four to really show up. Most people that even stop cold turkey report they feel fine for the first two days but on day three that starts to change. It all has to do with how long Suboxone stays active in your system - a term referred to as "half life" of the drug. You will know with much more certainty how all of this is going to go by the weekend.

As always good luck and keep us updated!

Yp Don I am patentlynfamiliar wth the term and meaning of "half life" as pertaining to the length of efficacy in time standards of drug reaction and symptomology. I should be feeling any adverse effect of the first decrease now, the second tomorrow or saturday and this latest one down to 2mg by monday. Seems to be goin good though man! As always thanks for the input!
