I am on a suboxone program. And I do get my levels tested and get Ua's every time I go in. I was on 4 s n the beginning and I got bumped up to 12 s but I'm suspose to take only half a 12 a day so 6 Mgs and whenever I go in he says that my levels aren't higher than when I was on the 4s and I don't understand?? It makes my doctor think that I am selling my medication and this is not the case. I need theses. So y are my levels not getting any higher or how can I make them be higher for when I go back in 2 weeks? I just don't get it. Now he wants me to go back down 2 my 4 s and I don't want to relapse ;( I don't get it... Sometimes I even take more than I should n some days I try to take less but other wise I'm pretty good about taking my dosages. Would it make a differences if I was shooting them up? Not that I do that all the time but I've tried.. And there's so many other people who r abusing and the ones that aren't get screwed someone help me.

Hi Mindy and Welcome to our forum! I don't understand what your doctor is looking for as far as levels go. But if he wants to see higher levels consistent with your dosage, just take your dose about an hour before you go in. That should work but I'm only guessing. We have smarter minds here that may say different.

Are you supposed to be going to a recovery group or addiction specialist? Most, if not all, want patients on Suboxone to work on their life so they can change the addiction behavior. A lot of Dr.'s want their patients to start tapering within the first 2 months of treatment. Some do, some don't. Mine wanted me to but gave up asking.

I wish you well on the road to recovery and hope to see you here for a long time.
