Update: I have taken suboxone for the first time today, 3mg. Not really 3mg by choice. I couldnt get the 1mg strip to stay under my tongue. The piece was so small I think the spit washed it away. I tried to take it like they explain in this:

http://suboxone.com/patients/about_subo ... _film.aspx

Would it be better to smear these tiny pieces (1/8th of a strip) around under my tongue versus just setting them there?

But it MUST be working at this point because I am just starting to feel relief, THANK GOD. I actually used the bathroom, which lets me know for sure that it is working (its weird I only get loose stools at the very start of withdrawals then I get constipated, I know TMI srry).

I think I might even take a SHOWER TODAY!!!


*edit* I just realized I have only been posting for 2 days, seemed like a week *edit*

Wow, I could have made it with less than 2 mg for sure. I will have to dilute this. While this is great, I just wanted to have just enough in me to stop withdrawals, but im not complaining because I have a lot of physical work that should have been done a week ago so im going to get to it. After I do some work I am going to see if I can devise some way to dilute it, while keeping it sticky so it will stay under my tongue, I just can't see being able to hold water under the tongue without swallowing it.

Amber, do you know if THIS LINK has been posted before? Seems like it might be useful to some people. The only thing missing is bupe, but if there is any data on the strength of bupe to any of those drugs that the calculator has a conversion chart could be set up. This might already have been done somewhere on here.

I havent seen that link before, and I dont think there is one for bupe, a conversion chart I mean.

because most of the time it SEEMS like doctors start with a 16mg dose. this topic of "standard" dosing, has been discussed here alot.

Most doctors want you to be over the 'ceiling dose' so that you dont have the 'ups and downs' of other opiates. Meaning, if you over the ceiling dose, it carries MOST people over 24hours......eliminating the need for more than once a day dosing. Unless your being dosed for pain too, then its just complicated :roll:
Im taking it for both, so Im perscribed 24mg. But I usually get away with 16 just fine.

Im glad your feeling some relief today!!!!!
bet you were ready!!!!

Keep up the good work, remember to have an open mind, if it proves to difficult to stay away from the other crap :wink:
